There are so many reasons we love working at the Ritz — the location right in the heart of Downtown Boston, the array of beautiful spaces to take wedding photos, and the classic and elegant ballroom are only a few of them! We were thrilled when Emily + Lou hired us to photograph their summer wedding at the Ritz Carlton Boston Common, and the day turned out to be perfect.

The bride and groom both started their morning getting ready at the Ritz — Emily with her bridal party and Lou with his groomsmen. When the soon-to-be newlyweds were ready, we took them downstairs to the Ballroom Foyer for their first look. The large windows gave us fantastic sunlight and the fabric textured white walls made for the perfect backdrop for this wonderful moment with the bride and groom. Next, we headed to the nearby Boston Public Garden with Emily, Lou, and their wedding party for some outdoor formal photos on this gorgeous summer afternoon!

When we returned to the Ritz Carlton Boston Common it was time for the Ketubah signing and traditional Jewish wedding ceremony. Emily + Lou became husband and wife underneath a beautiful white Chuppah, draped in fabric and featuring arrangements of classic white orchids. The floor-to-ceiling windows were also hung with soft white drapes that filled the room with beautiful sunshine as the bride and groom said I Do! The party moved into the  beautiful Studio room for cocktails, while the finishing touches were made to the ballroom inside.

The reception was classic and elegant, featuring a gorgeous mix of tall and short floral centerpieces and fun pops of coral throughout the decor. Emily told us that coral is one of her favorite colors, and it was also the color she was wearing when she met her husband-to-be! Even the up lighting around the ballroom featured a warm coral light, giving the entire room an intimate and summery glow. Following the first dance and heartfelt toasts from friends and family, the dance floor was open and the party really kicked off. The groom was even surprised by a special rendition of his favorite song, Happy by Pharrell — he was given a classic Pharrell hat to wear while he danced! At the end of the night guests took home delicious  chocolate chip cookies, brought in that morning especially for the wedding from one of Emily + Lou’s favorite bakeries in Philadelphia.

We could not have asked for a more gorgeous wedding day for this wonderful couple — special thanks to the entire team at the Ritz Carlton Boston Common for another spectacular event, and to Emily + Lou for letting us share this special day with you! Mazel Tov!

We had so much fun capturing this beautiful wedding day with Jen and Greg — the bride looked beautiful, the weather could not have been better, and everyone was so happy to be together celebrating this amazing couple. The bride and groom chose the State Room Boston as their wedding venue, perched high above the heart of downtown Boston at 60 State Street with a spectacular view of the city from 33 stories up!

The happy couple and bridal party got ready for the day in the nearby Hilton Boston Downtown. Jen + Greg chose colors of gold, white, and soft blush as their wedding inspiration, and you could see it right away in Jen’s beautiful bouquet. She carried an arrangement of white calla lilies and soft pink roses, and her bridesmaids matched perfectly in summery pink dresses. The bride and groom had their traditional “first look” in one of the Hilton suites before heading out to the trolley.

We took advantage of the perfect August weather and made the quick trip to the nearby Post Office Square in downtown Boston for some formal wedding photography. We got some great pictures of Jen, Greg and their wedding party outside in the sunshine before hopping back in the trolley to the State Room Boston.

The wedding ceremony took place in the State Room Boston’s Great Room, with beautiful black ballroom chairs, two gorgeous floral arrangements on either side of the altar, and an aisle lined with pink rose petals. The Great Room’s floor-to-ceiling windows provided the perfect backdrop as the happy couple said their “I do”s.

After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres upstairs on the Mezzanine while the Great Room was transformed for the evening wedding reception. The tables were topped with shimmery champagne linens paired with towering white and pink floral centerpieces.

As the sun started to set, the view of the city skyline became even more spectacular outside. The newlyweds’ closest friends and family gave heartfelt toasts, while an impromptu fireworks show from the city below filled the sky with amazing fireworks! Jen told us that the exact same thing happened at her Bat Mitzvah years earlier, so the firework display was extra special for her.

After dinner, toasts, and parent dances, the dance floor was opened up for all the guests to enjoy — and they certainly did! We could tell that everyone was so happy to be enjoying this day with Jen and Greg, and the fun and energetic atmosphere lasted late into the night. A big thank you to the newlyweds for being so fun and easy to work with, and to all their friends and family for including us in this wonderful day. Congratulations Jen + Greg!

Recently, Person + Killian Photography photographed the Boston Wedding of Elizabeth and Terry. The day began at the Langham Hotel, where the bride, bridesmaids and parents got ready followed by an emotional ceremony at Our Lady’s Church in Newton. From there, we headed to Post Office Square for photos and then back to the Langham for their celebration.

From the moment we arrived at the hotel until the end of the evening we were surrounded by such a wonderful group of people. The newlyweds, along with the families and friends, never stopped smiling, lauging and enjoying each and every moment. Capturing the wedding was an absolutle pleasure. So, when we received the below email from the bride yesterday, we were thrilled!

I cannot even begin to tell you how thrilled we are with the pictures from the wedding. They are absolutely gorgeous. You were so fun and easy to be around and we felt so comfortable with you and it shows in your beautiful pictures. I have no clue how we are going to pick!! I can’t thank you enough. – Elizabeth

Thank you Elizabeth and Terry for the kind words and for being so wonderful to work with throughout your wedding day!
