Maggie and Mike dreamed of a classic winter wedding in Boston, and their beautiful and elegant wedding at the Taj Boston and Hampshire House was exactly what they had hoped for! This winter wedding was before Boston saw its first big snowfall, but the couple still took advantage of all the winter details around the city. The couple began the day at the Taj Boston — Mike with his groomsmen, and Maggie with her bridesmaids (as well as the couple’s adorable dog Bonnie). Maggie accented her wedding gown with a gorgeous fur wrap, perfect for outdoor photos in the winter.

The couple met in the Boston Public Garden, directly across the street from the Taj Boston, for their first look and formal photos in the park. Then it was off to St. Cecilia’s Parish just a few blocks away for the wedding ceremony. Maggie and Mike became husband and wife in a full Catholic mass ceremony, surrounded by friends, family, and loved ones. Evening had fallen in the city after the ceremony was finished, and we took the newlyweds out to Commonwealth Avenue on our way back to the reception for a few more photos. Around this time of year Comm Ave is lined with sparkling holiday lights, which made the perfect backdrop for some classic winter wedding photos.

The reception was held at the Hampshire House in Beacon Hill, with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres starting on the Hampshire House’s third floor. We took advantage of the House’s stunning spiral staircase for some photos with the newlywed’s, then the party moved downstairs to the second floor for dinner. The couple chose classic white with a few pops of blue for their winter wedding decor — the neutral palette matched perfectly with the Hampshire House’s already rich and historical design. Silver vases held gorgeous white floral arrangements, and soft candlelight glowed throughout the room. Following dinner, guests moved up to the third floor for dessert and then back down to the second floor for dancing. Maggie, Mike, and all of their guests danced the night away at this beautiful winter wedding celebration — exactly how they had imagined it.

Thank you to Maggie and Mike for including us in your wonderful wedding, and to the Hampshire House for sending this fantastic couple our way!

Boston Winter Wedding by Person + Killian Photography – 251 Newbury Street – Boston, MA 02116 – 617.236.1662 – [email protected] [email protected]

Elana and Pete met while working for the Boston Red Sox. The couple worked together and were friends for many years before they started dating. Elana knew it couldn’t be better professionally than to see the team win the World Series at Fenway Park back in 2013 and left to pursue her teaching career. Although she misses working with the team, she couldn’t imagine life without Pete.

When Pete and Elana chose the Seaport Hotel Boston for their winter wedding, they were told throughout their planning that they were crazy to plan a wedding in February (the snowiest month of the year). The couple knew they made the right decision and made many preparations in case it was snowing or below freezing so their guests would be comfortable. So, it was a very welcomed surprise when the wedding day came and the temperature was in the 60’s! With the warm sun and spring like breeze, we were able to spend the afternoon outside for all of the photos with the family and wedding party.

From the bride: The Seaport was out perfect venue. We loved working with Melissa  who made sure that we had everything we needed (including making sure to have the Fenway inspired late night snacks). We loved being able to exchange our own vows before doing the traditional vows. It was important to us to have a ceremony and a wedding that really felt like it reflected us. We wanted it to be both personal and fun and are so happy it turned out that way!

A big congratulations to Elana and Pete and thank you to Melissa and the team at the Seaport Hotel Boston for being so great to work with!
