We love working with such truly sweet couples such as Erica and Kevin, and we were thrilled to be able to join them for their classic and traditional Westin Copley Place wedding celebration! It was important to the couple that they shared their love of Boston, and of each other, with their guests. They succeeded in having that shine through in all the details, from riding in Old Town Trolleys to the ceremony, to having classic formal photographs taken in the one and only Copley Plaza.

Erica and Kevin decided not to see each other before the ceremony, which took place at the stately Cathedral of the Holy Cross in South Boston. It made for quite the emotional moment when bride and groom first saw each other down the lengthy and elegant aisle to the altar. Erica was stunning in her beautiful classic gown by Rivini, with its intricate lace, and her gorgeous cathedral length veil, as she stood alongside Kevin at the altar for their full Catholic Mass and ceremony.

The reception was an intimate and enjoyable affair, with touching speeches and enthusiastic dancing. The ballroom was adorned in fresh flowers in shades of ivory and green for a light and lively touch, from Lotus Designs, that really helped the creative escort cards (styled after Massachusetts’ city and town signs!) pop, as while as the accents of gold throughout the room.

Congratulations Erica and Kevin! A special thank you to Shauna Richmond and her team at the Westin Copley for organizing such a lovely day to remember!

New York City couple Eliah and Jamie met while attending Harvard University. Their love for music brought them together as they traveled the world on a 2004 World Tour as members of The Harvard Krokodiloes.

Eliah and Jamie chose to come back to Boston to celebrate their wedding weekend starting with their rehearsal dinner at Elliot Hall on the Harvard University campus. The wedding ceremony and reception were held the following night on New Years Eve at the Harvard Club of Boston on Commonwealth Ave in the Back Bay.

“Supper with Jamie and Eliah” at Elliot Hall was just the beginning of two days of celebration filled with music. Of the nearly 250 friends and family, almost everyone had a part. Guests preformed original songs for the couple, Broadway hits, guitar and piano solos, duets and toasts throughout the evening. The rehearsal was truly a moving and memorable night that was just a preview of the spectacular wedding the next day.

After getting ready at the Harvard Club, Eliah and Jamie met up with their family and friends for some traditional wedding party photographs in the Massachusetts Room. The spacious warmly lit room and black and white checkered floor made for a great location (and a favorite space at the Club for Eliah).

Guests arrived for the ceremony to a spectacularly decorated Harvard Hall.  A custom birch chuppah by Marc Hall Design sat in the center of the room and was surrounded by chiavari chairs set up in the round with candle light throughout adding warmth of the space. The moving ceremony was filled with music including a quartet and a cappella by the Harvad Kroks who sang from the balcony.

When guests arrived back in Harvard Hall after cocktails in the Massachusetts Room, it had been transformed by Marc and his team. Topiaries topped each guest table and warmth was added with candle light and roaring fireplaces on each end of the hall. Following the newlyweds introduction, a lively hora got the room up on their feet.  Prior to dinner a prayer song was sung by the Krocks and included both Eliah and Jamie.

As soon as dinner concluded, the dancing kicked off with music by Nightshift Entertainment. When the clock struck midnight, Eliah took the stage to preform the classic Frank Sinatra song “New York, New York”. Just before the end of the song, confetti filled the air from the balconies. This was a surprise to guests who joined in the song and celebration.

Congratulations to Eliah and Jamie. We had such a wonderful time capturing your rehearsal dinner and wedding celebration! This was the perfect way to kick off a new year of weddings and events. A big thank you to Nicole Simeral of Simeral & Company for flawless planning and to Jennifer and her team at the Harvard Club of Boston for always being so great to work with. A very happy 2014 to all!

Back Bay Boston New Years Eve Wedding of Eliah and Jamie at the Harvard Club of Boston with Wedding Rehearsal at Harvard University and photographs by Person + Killian Photography

Person + Killian was excited to  photograph another gorgeous Four Seasons Boston wedding!

We started the day getting ready with the bride and groom, in their own separate rooms, at the Four Seasons. Bettina and John wanted to have a traditional “first look” moment before the evening’s ceremony, and the hotel’s grand staircase overlooking the Public Gardens was the perfect place to do it!

With a few hours to spare before the ceremony, we took the opportunity to get some formal photographs of the couple with friends and family. We utilized the Four Season’s beautiful indoor spaces for  photos with parents and siblings, then moved across the street to the Public Garden to get some great outdoor pictures of the couple with their wedding party. The ceremony itself was held in the Four Season’s own Governor’s Room.

With formal photographs already out of the way, Bettina and John were able to enjoy their bright and lively cocktail hour with guests in the hotel’s Aujourd’hui Room, while the Main Ballroom was being prepared for the reception. The space looked soft and romantic thanks to the great planning and design by SD Events, with gorgeous floral arrangements by Mimosa. The guests had no trouble getting this party started, and with some help from Boston Beantown Band, they kept celebrating all night!

Thank you Bettina and John, we so enjoyed spending this special day with you!

Last Friday we photographed the Harvard Square Cambridge wedding of Charlotte and Brian. This local couple loves the holiday season so December 23rd made for a perfect date for their winter wedding. The bride, a Harvard graduate, and groom chose The Charles Hotel for getting ready with their first look in the John F. Kennedy Memorial Park just outside the hotel.

Since Charlotte had been a member of the Harvard Crew team during her college years, we were able to spent some time taking photos in the beautiful and historic Weld Boathouse on the Charles River. The boathouse and setting sun made for the perfect backdrop for some formal photos of the couple and their wedding party.

After finishing up the formal photos, we took advantage of the warm winter weather and walked along the river to the Swedenborg Chapel where the ceremony took place. Following the ceremony, we headed through Harvard Square (great for a few photo ops) to the reception at Upstairs on the Square. Congratulations Charlotte and Brian! It was an absolute pleasure photographing such a special day.

We love every opportunity to photography at Boston’s Omni Parker House and recently had the pleasure of being there again for Christina and Ben’s wedding day! Prior to the ceremony Christina and her bridesmaids got ready in the beautiful Parker Suite of the hotel. From there we headed downstairs to the Press Room where the couple exchanged vows and took some time for a few photos.

With the Omni Parker House being located across the street from the picturesque Old City Hall and the unbelievably warm weather, the newlyweds were definitely up for some outdoor photos.  Before joining their guests at cocktail hour we stopped to capture a few classic images in the lobby of the hotel.

The reception took place in the rooftop ballroom. Christina, Ben and their guests had a blast dancing to the entertainment of DJ Mike Amado. Congratulations to Christina + Ben and thank you both for being so great to work with and trusting us to capture such a special day in your lives!
