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]

This beautiful day in the heart of Boston was the perfect setting for Katie + Chris’s enchanted Summer Taj Boston wedding. The bride and groom got ready at the hotel and Chris was blown away when he entered Katie’s room to see his glowing wife to be for their first look.

Before the bride and groom officially tied the knot, we took a stroll through the Boston Public Gardens with the wedding party to capture the sheer bliss on the faces of the couple as well as their wedding party and families. Shortly after, we arrived at St. Cecilia Parish for the Catholic ceremony Katie + Chris stood in front of their loved ones for. The ceremony couldn’t have been more beautiful, from the high ceilings lined with glowing stained glass to the massive stone pillars and remarkably painted walls of the Parish.

Spirits were high as the bride and groom arrived at the reception to what looked like a romantic scene torn out of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The lighting gave a fantastical sense of wonder to the magical night as the greenery displayed the natural and calming qualities of the Shakespearean setting.  It was very easy to get lost in the natural feel and lush surroundings, to the point where all thoughts and signs of being in the big city were lost in the elegant array of beautiful flowers and decor.

Thank you to the Taj Boston and the team at Amy Kimball Events for being so lovely to work with and a heartfelt congratulations and thank you to Katie + Chris for having us there to capture your beautiful Spring Taj Boston wedding celebration!

A gorgeous day and classic Back Bay location made for the perfect combination for Melissa + Peter’s Spring Taj Boston wedding. The bride and groom wanted a classic and traditional wedding throughout all the aspects of their big day, from the soft flowers, to the beautiful Church ceremony (which held extra special significance to Melissa), to the evening reception in the elegant Taj Boston Grand Ballroom.

The wedding ceremony was held at the Collage of the Holy Cross, St. Joseph Chapel, which is were Melissa went to school. The inside of the church was stunning, with a high domed ceiling and lots of colorful stained glass for a warm, intimate feeling. This beautiful catholic ceremony was filled with amazing music and the service was one of the most important elements to the evening for Melissa + Peter.

Coming out of the church after the “I do”s, the Spring weather was absolutely perfect. We couldn’t help but take a few photographs of the happy newlyweds on the steps of the chapel, before heading back to Boston. While guests enjoyed cocktail hour we took Melissa, Peter, and their wedding party over to the Boston Public Garden for some beautiful formals photographs.

The Ballroom was transformed into the classically elegant wedding reception Melissa had been dreaming of, with textured linens and gorgeous floral arrangements. The space was filled with rich, warm color, so the soft ivory flowers, and touches of gold were the perfect choice to enhance the natural elegance of the space without overwhelming it. Both the high and low floral arrangements were paired with candle votives, giving the room a warm romantic glow as soon as the sun started to set.

Thank you to the Taj Boston for being so lovely to work with and a big congratulations and thank you to Melissa + Peter for having us there to capture your beautiful Spring Taj Boston wedding celebration!

We could not have asked for a more gorgeous spring day to celebrate Nicole + Pat’s wedding at the Omni Parker House Boston. The couple was looking for the feeling of their wedding day to be soft and romantic, with colors of gold and blush pink and a fun “city chic” atmosphere! The Omni Parker House Boston’s location right in the heart of the city was perfect for that bustling downtown city atmosphere, and with the nearby parks and historic locations we had lots of opportunity for unique wedding photos with the bride and groom.

Our day started with the bride and her bridesmaids getting ready at the Omni Parker House Boston, while Pat and his groomsmen got ready and hung out at their apartment in South Boston. When everyone was ready, we met up in the Boston Public Garden for the bride and groom’s first look, while the smiling wedding party looked on from a distance.  We took advantage of the amazing weather and had time to utilize a few different locations in the Public Garden for formal wedding party photos before heading down to the Gate of Heaven church in South Boston for the ceremony.

Following the ceremony, we took the newlyweds to their neighborhood for a few more photos — including a stop at their favorite park, Thomas Park, just a few blocks away from their South Boston apartment. We then made the trip back into downtown Boston for some pictures in front of the historic Old City Hall on Tremont Street  before heading back inside the Omni Parker House Boston to begin the evening reception.

The Omni Parker House Rooftop Ballroom was transformed into an elegant spring wedding reception with a mix of bright pink high and low floral centerpieces, and gold ballroom chairs. We loved the custom touches Nicole and Pat included throughout their reception.  Gold-framed signs displayed their special wedding hashtag and signature wedding cocktail — named the “Southie Wildcat” to pay homage to the bride and groom’s neighborhood and alma mater. Following the first dance and toasts from wedding party, we were able to sneak away with Nicole and Pat to get a few photos on the Omni Parker House’s beautiful rooftop, which overlooks the city with an unbeatable view of the Boston skyline. We came back inside for the cake cutting, parent dances, and a night full of dancing to celebrate this wonderful couple.

Special thanks to the team at the Omni Parker House Boston for a wonderful evening, and to Nicole + Pat for letting us be a part of your beautiful city chic spring wedding day! We had a blast!

We love it when couples think outside the box and choose a fun and unique wedding venue for a truly one-of-a-kind event! Leigh Anne + Zach wanted their special day to be fun, casual, and  unique — and their New England Aquarium wedding was all that and more.

We first met up with the bride at the InterContinental Hotel Boston, where she and her bridesmaids were getting dressed and ready for the day’s events. Zach and his groomsmen were getting ready at their home in Charlestown, and the bride and groom decided not to see each other before the walk down the aisle. Once hair and makeup was all finished up and the dress was on, we took advantage of the beautiful Autumn day and took Leigh Anne and her bridesmaids outside the InterContinental for some pre-ceremony photos before making the trip to Charlestown for the ceremony.

The traditional Catholic wedding ceremony took place at the beautiful Saint Mary – Saint Catherine of Siena Parish in Charlestown. We love capturing that moment when the groom sees his bride for the first time as she’s walking down the aisle, it’s always one of our favorite pictures of the day! We snapped a couple photos of the happy newlyweds at the church after the “I do”s, and headed back down to Boston to get the party started.

Before joining guests at the New England Aquarium for cocktails, we took Leigh Anne, Zach, and their wedding party back to the InterContinental Hotel Boston for some beautiful nighttime photos out on the waterfront. Meanwhile, guests enjoyed cocktails at one of the most unique locations in Boston — right along side the New England Aquarium’s main tank and exhibit gallery. They could sip their drinks, enjoy passed hors d’oeuvres, and take in the sights of the one-of-a-kind 200,000 gallon Giant Ocean Tank and it’s 2,000 fishy inhabitants! This was definitely not your typical wedding cocktail hour.

Following cocktails, the party moved outside to the New England Aquarium’s Harbor Terrace Tent, right on the Boston Harbor waterfront. Here is what Leigh Anne had to say about her inspiration for this beautiful New England Aquarium wedding reception:

Zach and I really wanted a unique spot for our reception. We were looking for something fun, casual, yet romantic. The tent at the Aquarium was a perfect mix. We chose neutral colors like ivory and champagne for linens and flowers and added purple uplighting to the tent. To soften the look inside the tent we also added white drapery, bee lights, and twig chandeliers.

We were so happy to share this unique New England Aquarium wedding day with Leigh Anne, Zachary, and all their family and friends. Special thanks to the InterContinental Hotel Boston, the whole team at the New England Aquarium, and Leigh Anne + Zach for being so great to work with! Congratulations!
