On a beautiful fall day Megan and Robert’s black and white inspired Boston Harbor Hotel Wedding was both traditional and elegant. Stylish, polished, and bursting with beautiful details, this black and white affair will have everyone saying, “I Do!”

Megan and Robert were surrounded by their loving family and friends for a traditional and heartfelt ceremony inside the breathtaking architecture of Saint Mary-Saint Catherine Church. A charming Boston trolley then whisked away our gorgeous newlyweds and wedding party to capture some perfectly playful city shots.

The classically beautiful Boston Harbor Hotel was flawlessly transformed into a vision of black white elegance for Megan and Robert’s stunning wedding reception. With fabulous white and cream florals, chic chalk decor, and simply delightful his and hers signature drinks Megan and Robert’s wedding was chock-full of irresistibly pretty details. Later, guests enjoyed the bold and eye-catching black and white dance floor for the bride and groom’s touching first dance and the exciting live band performance of Joey & The Connections.

A big thank you to the Boston Harbor Hotel and the team at Bene Events who made such a beautiful day possible! Congratulations to Megan and Robert and your sincerest thanks for entrusting Person + Killian Photography to document your special day. We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!

If you’ve ever had the chance to attend an event at The State Room Boston in the evening, when you can see the busy city streets lit up from 33 stories above it all, you know it’s absolutely breathtaking. Photographing the Boston State Room Wedding of Lindsay + Bradley was exactly that, magical and romantic with a classic Boston feel.

Lindsay got ready at the luxurious and historic Langham Hotel, where she also had her  joyous first look with the groom. The rain cleared just in time to take formals in the beautiful misty afternoon, so we headed to Post Office Square with the couple and our cameras to capture special moments with Lindsay, Bradley and their families.

The ceremony and reception were at the State Room and the evening was radiant with a sense of traditional elegance and classic Boston charm. Guests were floored by the most spectacular view of Boston’s skyline through a panoramic glass wall 20 ft high and 120 ft across. Gorgeous, soft and elegant ivory and green florals graced the table tops in varying centerpieces from Sean at La Folie Fleur. Everyone enjoyed toasts, cake, laughter and fun as the couple and their guests danced into the late night.

Thank you to the entire team at the State Room Boston for another flawless event, and congratulations Lindsay + Bradley!

Leandra and Matthew’s recent Seaport Hotel Boston Wedding was an elegant and fun celebration with a deep fall colors of purple, orange and burgundy. After getting ready in their hotel suites,  we captured their first look  just outside of the Plaza Ballroom.  With the Boston Skyline, Harbor, World Trade Center arches and fall flowers, we had several perfect backdrops to capture the formal photographs of the couple and their wedding party.

The ceremony took place across the street in the Winter Garden atrium at the Seaport that was glowing with natural light. The aisle was lined with ivory, orange and burgundy flowers and hurricane candle lamps that were a perfect representation of the beginning of fall in New England.

Following the ceremony, the celebration moved over to the Seaport World Trade Center where cocktail hour was held outside of the Harborview Ballroom. Leandra and Matt created a custom photo booth space with an antique iron table and chair set that was passed down to Leandra from a family member. The ballroom round tables were draped with silver linens and fall themed floral center pieces that blended perfectly with the accent uplighting. As soon as dinner concluded and the music started, the bride, groom and their family and friends hit the dancefloor and celebrated non-stop for the rest of the evening.

A special thank you also to the entire team at the Seaport Hotel Boston and Seaport World Trade Center and big Congratulations and thank you to Leandra and Matthew for being so fun to work with throughout your wedding day!

Stephanie and Jayson’s recent wedding was an elegant  and romantic celebration that took place at the Spring Valley Country Club in Sharon, MA. Spring Valley includes 200 acres of beautiful surroundings outdoors and grand ballroom with floor to ceiling windows throughout overlooking the golf course.

Stephanie got ready at the country club with the bridesmaids by her side. The couple met outside on the green for  their first look at first hole of the 18-hole championship golf course, renowned for its beauty. The bridal party then joined the couple to begin taking formal photos with the beautifully manicured and lush scenery of the grounds.

Prior to their traditional Jewish ceremony, Steph, Jay and their immediate family signed the Ketubah before walking down the isle. Guests enjoyed cocktail hour, and at sunset the everyone moved to their seats for the couples first dance (and  surprise 2nd dance that got everyone on their feet). Following dinner, Steph, Jay and there guests enjoyed an energetic hora and dancing for the remainder of the evening celebration.

Thank you Steph and Jay for having us photograph your wedding day and for being so wonderful to work with. Congratulations again!

This week for our Boston Venue Spotlight, we’ve decided to highlight the always fabulous Four Seasons Hotel Boston. Some of our most memorable weddings and events have been at this wonderful hotel — they not only have one of the most beautiful ballrooms in Boston, their events and sales team are some of our favorite vendors to collaborate with. Brides and grooms are always in good hands at the Four Seasons!

The Four Seasons Boston is the perfect venue for that bride and groom looking for a classic, elegant, and beautifully traditional space for their wedding. One of the most sought-after spots in the entire hotel is the stunning 2-story Grand Staircase — a perfect location for a first look, bride and groom portraits, or family formals. The enormous crystal chandelier creates the perfect elegant backdrop, and the second level features floor-to-ceiling windows that look right out onto the Boston Public Garden. On a warm day, we will take the couple on a quick walk across the street for some beautiful outdoor portraits in the Garden. Their location right in the heart of downtown Boston has the perfect mix of city backdrops, natural outdoor spaces, and classically beautiful indoor spaces to make every couple’s wedding photos unique.

The recently renovated Ballroom at the Four Seasons Boston features classic shades of white and silver, to perfectly match any decor or color scheme a couple chooses to bring in. We have seen so many wonderful color palettes inside this ballroom, from baby blue to red to traditional white, and each of them works beautifully! The Ballroom is also a great location for a wedding ceremony, to be quickly flipped to a reception space while guests enjoy cocktails in the nearby Aujourd’hui Room. We have also seen many couples use the Four Seasons Boston’s Governor’s Room for their wedding ceremony, the curved walls and stunning round ceiling treatment make for a wonderfully elegant ceremony space before moving guests into the Ballroom for dinner and dancing.

We have sampled some of our favorite photographs from recent Four Seasons Boston weddings, check them out below:

Now that we’ve slowed down for the season, we thought this was a great time to do a weekly spotlight! Each week we will highlight one of our favorite Boston wedding venues, and share some of our favorite photographs from local Boston weddings, as well as sharing why we love working there.

This week, our Venue Spotlight is the InterContinental Boston. One of our favorite things about working at the InterContinental Boston is the location. The hotel is located right on the waterfront making for spectacular harbor side wedding photos, in any season. Walk out the front door and you are in the heart of the bustling downtown Financial District, walk out the back door and you find yourself right on the Boston Harbor. The InterContinental indoor event spaces are some of the most grandiose in the city. With 11 event spaces total (including two grand ballrooms), the InterContinental has enough space to mix and match for any wedding or event. We especially love their Abigail Adams Ballroom — the floor-to-ceiling windows are absolutely stunning, and overlook the beautiful Boston waterfront. We have seen this space used for late afternoon and evening wedding ceremonies, as well as nighttime receptions. Couples often choose to have their ballroom flipped — say your “I do”s in a ballroom ceremony, go off to enjoy cocktails in the beautiful foyer, and come back to a beautifully transformed ballroom wedding reception space! The InterContinental’s in-house kitchen turns out some of the best food in Boston. We love their creative (and beautifully displayed!) hors d’oeuvres, as well as their out-of-this world dessert bars — not only wonderful to eat, but they make for fantastic wedding photographs.

The InterContinental Boston is a truly unique Boston wedding venue — elegant and contemporary, with the perfect variety for great wedding photos. Below are some of our past favorite InterContinental Boston wedding photographs:

Another year has passed and what a year it has been! As we approach the close of the 2013 season, we wanted to take a few minutes to reflect on what an incredible year this has been. We photographed nearly 100 weddings, mitzvahs and events throughout New England. On top of that, we photographed an amazing destination wedding in Hawaii and were honored with being hired to photograph private events for the Boston Red Sox 2013 Playoffs and World Series. We truly fee humbled by all the amazing clients and industry friends who have put their trust in us in 2013.

With much sincere appreciation we say thank you! Thank you for sharing your lives with us and allowing us to document such important celebrations. Below are just a few of the many wonderful people who we had the pleasure meeting and working with this year. We adore you all an as we look at each photo we smile and remember how much fun we had at each and every event! Wishing everyone a fantastic 2014! – Cheers,  Laurén + Jill

The outdoor courtyard at the Boston Public Library is one of our favorite ceremony locations in the city! The beautiful gardens and Italian-inspired fountain make for a perfect backdrop to a warm-weather wedding. We loved being back in the courtyard for our first Boston Public Library wedding of the season to celebrate Mia + Michael.

The Boston Public Library has so many unique spaces for all sorts of fun pictures — after getting ready at the nearby Lenox Hotel, the bride and groom decided to have their “first look” on the BPL’s magnificent grand staircase. We stayed inside the main lobby to get some shots with Mia, Michael and their wedding party before heading outside to the courtyard for the ceremony. Guests remained out in the courtyard to enjoy the spring weather for their cocktail hour, while we took the newlyweds around the venue for some more pictures.

The party was moved inside for the reception — the Courtyard Restaurant was revamped to match Mia and Michael’s colors with purple linens, beautiful purple floral arrangements, silver chiavari chairs and purple lighting to complete the look. A traditional cake cutting, toasts, and a night full of dancing (including an impromptu Hora) followed in the adjacent Map Room. Everyone had a blast celebrating this great couple – including us!

Special thanks to the always fantastic team of The Catered Affair at the Boston Public Library for another beautiful event, and congratulations Mia and Michael!

From Mia + Michael – “Jill, Thank you so so so much. We LOVE the photos!!!!  I have already looked through the cd so many times!! I couldn’t be more in love with the photos!!!  You were amazing to work with!”

We are so thrilled to share that one of our wedding photographs was published in the Boston Globe. This special wedding magazine is published once a year and is a fantastic resource for New England brides & grooms. Our photograph accompanied the article on Boston wedding venues. Say Yes to the Room- “couples talk about why they loved their reception sites-and what they might do differently if the could do it again”.

Intimate OceanfrontChoosing a small inn by the sea can make even a larger wedding feel intimate, with perhaps a clambake rehearsal dinner, a shoes-optional ceremony on the beach, and a catered reception indoors or in a tent. Bob Ostrander and Laura MacSwan Ostrander ( Pictured above), who wed at the Chatham Bars Inn in September 201o, liked knowing their guests were comfortable, says Ostrander, who lives with her husband in Darien, Connecticut. “I suggested they bring something to keep warm.” As for her own sartorial choices, she saved her heels for the reception.

This photograph was captured at the Cape Cod real wedding of Laura & Bob. This beautiful couple had a classic seaside affair at the lovely Chatham Bars Inn. To view more wedding photographs of the Chatham Bars Inn-Click here.

It’s only fitting that Person + Killian Photography got to ring in the New Year at a winter wedding at the Fairmont Copley Plaza! And, on top of that, we were with one of the sweetest couples, Lauren + Chris!

Lauren looked amazing in her wedding gown, which she paired with a birdcage veil, chunky necklace, black beaded belt and amazing jeweled black heals.

The bride and groom invited their closet friends and family to a small intimate, classic and beautiful wedding. The reception took place in the Fairmont Copley Plaza’s Oval Room and the colors throughout were black & white with touches of deep red.

Lauren + Chris incorporated small details into the night that really made the evening special.  For example, during their “first look” in the Fairmont’s Presidential Suite, the couple’s dog Rowan made a special appearance. The bride changed into her grandmothers wedding gown during cocktail hour and the signature drinks were all in honor of the dogs they love! The “Rowan” was a rye whiskey with Grand Marnier and maple syrup. The party was in full swing when the clock struck midnight and the crowd danced into the New Year with music from a Beatles cover band!

It was a wonderful night and we were honored to document this beautiful affair with such a sweet & loving couple. Congratulations Lauren + Chris and Happy New Year to all!

With great pleasure we photographed yet another beautiful holiday soiree for The Ritz-Carlton, Boston.

This beautiful event came together with the joint efforts of the Ritz staff and their amazing culinary team. Also, lending their talents were some of Boston’s finest event professionals that included Ambiance Event Service, Be Our Guest, Music Management, Southern Audio Visual, Stump Trivia & Winston Flowers.

This year the Ritz continued their holiday tradition of sharing the joy of the season with a child in need. Guests were invited to bring an unwrapped gift for the Big Wishes for Little Wanderers Holiday Drive. They also surprised everyone with a flash mob performance by the Boston College cheerleading squad and the Ritz staff!

Thank you to everyone at the The Ritz-Carlton, Boston Common for thinking of Person + Killian Photography to capture this beautiful event. Below are some of our favorite photographs from the evening!
