This past weekend, Person + Killian Photography was delighted to be present at the glamorous InterContinental Hotel wedding of Nicole Melino and Christopher Ponzo. For those of you who don’t know, this Boston couple was recently featured on Boston Hearts Weddings as part of the site’s Blogging the Bride project. The project follows the couple through all of the major stages of wedding planning, and it includes everything from their engagement story to their menu selection – not to mention all of the details in between!

The bride looked stunning in a strapless gown from L’élite Bridal Boutique, and makeup artist Katrina Hess helped her achieve the beautifully classic, yet modern look that complemented the gown so well.

Not only was it a treat to work with such a wonderful couple, but also, we had the opportunity to work with some of Boston’s most esteemed wedding vendors.

Tangorra Wedding Planning worked with the bride and groom throughout the planning process to coordinate the details, and on the big day, planners Francie and Megan were there to make sure nothing was forgotten.

Along with Person + Killian Photography, Jason and Jim from Boston Wedding Films were there to capture the day in its entirety.

The reception was held at Boston’s luxurious InterContinental Hotel. Thanks to the hotel’s fabulous location, guests were treated to striking views of both the city skyline and the waterfront. In fact, the venue afforded a perfect view for the celebratory fireworks display.

We want to thank Paul Melino of InterContinental Hotel (who also happens to be the uncle of the beautiful bride) for referring Person + Killian Photography to the couple. Not only did we enjoy working with the hotel, but we also had a wonderful time photographing the couple throughout their whole planning process. Congratulations, Nicole and Christopher!

Julie & Brian were married at Saint Ignatius Church in Chestnut Hill Massachusetts, just outside of Boston. It was a beautiful Catholic wedding ceremony followed by a reception at the Langham Hotel Boston, and Person + Killian Photography was delighted to be there.

P+K met the Wilson family over a year ago at our Newbury Street Studio and instantly knew they were loving and sweet. The bride and her mom had just been dress shopping and Julie had found her dream wedding gown! We remember how excited she was to go back to the dress shop immediately after our appointment and show her Dad!

So it was no surprise when Lauren arrived to the brides parents house the morning of, that they were filled with emotion and joy for their only daughters wedding day!

The couple chose the elegant, historic and wonderfully romantic, Langham Hotel Boston to host their wedding reception. The Langham is one of the finest hotels in the city and is situated in the heart of downtown Boston.

We were able to utilize a few of our favorite locations for wedding photographs, Rowes Wharf in front of the Boston Harbor Hotel & Post Office Square- seconds away from the Langham hotel!

When we asked the couple if they had any special requests from us Julie said, “Our favorite photos of yours are where everyone looks natural and happy. We love the photos that capture emotion and of course cute & loving moments! (: ” When asked to describe the inspiration for her wedding Julie said, “A traditional & classic wedding with a modern twist. Our colors are aqua, blue & white and our vision is for everyone to be happy & have a great time!”


Congratulations Julie & Brian and thank you for choosing Person + Killian Photography to document your beautiful Boston wedding!  It was a pleasure working with you and your families.

The Great House on Castle Hill is located on The Crane Estate in Ipswich, Ma. A historic landmark, and is one of the most sought –after wedding venues in the North Shore. The elegant architecture, panoramic ocean views and amazing landscapes, provided the perfect backdrop for Brooke + Matt’s Seaside wedding! Of course Person + Killian Photography was ecstatic to be a part of it all!

The couple described their wedding as – an elegant coastal garden feel with some lovebird accents. Our favorite touch was the adorable pair of lovebirds atop their beach-themed cake! Their colors were sage + ocean blue and they chose to be married in the same church as Brookes parents + grandparents. Such a beautiful sentimental touch and Lauren was honored to be there to document this beautiful event. We loved being able to capture pictures with the couple all over the Crane Estate’s property, including the romantic Italian Gardens and out on the lawn right as the sun was setting. The spring weather held out all day and night for this beautiful and elegant seaside-inspired wedding! Congratulations Brooke and Matt, we had such a blast capturing your wedding day.
