Every year it comes back, and every year we’re just as excited as we were last time. That’s right — summer has finally returned to Boston! At this gorgeous Boston summer wedding, we celebrated with Maria and Ryan. For the bride and groom, the day was all about family and friends and celebrating their relationship in the best of company. When we asked Maria and Ryan to describe how they envisioned their summer wedding day they used words like “chic”, “elegant”, and “classic”. But above all they used the word emotional — and they were right on the money!

Maria (an oncology nurse at Dana-Farber) and Ryan (an ice hockey forward playing in the American Hockey League) surrounded themselves with a large wedding party for the day’s celebration. Eight bridesmaids, eight groomsmen, and eight little nieces and nephews started the day with the bride and groom getting ready at the Fairmont Copley Plaza.

The couple became husband and wife in a full Catholic Mass ceremony at the beautiful St. Cecilia Church. We took full advantage of the sunny summer afternoon after the ceremony for some formal photos with the newlyweds and their wedding party throughout Copley Square, before heading across to the Fairmont Copley Plaza for the evening’s reception. The Fairmont Copley Plaza Ballroom was elegantly transformed with classic white linens and tall white floral centerpieces, touches of gold detail, and stunning purple lighting. Family and friends could not wait to eat, drink, toast, dance, and celebrate with this wonderful couple — and we were honored to be there right alongside them!

Special thanks to Alice and her team at the Fairmont Copley Plaza, Paula and the Marrero Events team, and to Maria and Ryan for including us in your truly special summer Boston wedding day!

While Meaghan and Harry were saying their royal wedding “I do”s in England, we were celebrating the beautiful wedding of Laura and Mike right here in Boston. This wedding was extra special for us to be a part of, because Laura credits our very own Person + Killian blog for helping her find inspiration, ideas, and vendors for her own celebration. The couple described their vision for the wedding as “modern and romantic” with “lots of metallic colors” along with white, green, and pink flowers. The bride and groom are getting ready to start a new chapter of their lives in Los Angeles next month, so this Boston Public Library wedding was their “last big hurrah” in Boston before making the move!

The day started at the Fairmont Copley Plaza, with a champagne toast for the ladies and the bride and groom’s first look in the Fairmont lobby. We stayed at the Fairmont for some formal photos with the wedding party before making the quick walk across Copley Square to the Boston Public Library. Laura and Mike didn’t even mind the rainy day, with so many gorgeous spaces inside the Fairmont Copley Plaza and the Boston Public Library we could get some beautiful formal photos without getting wet. Once inside the BPL, we got photos with the entire wedding party on the grand staircase, on the balcony, and outside the Abbey Room. The mix of classic colors from the bride’s white gown, the bridesmaid’s black dresses and the pop of pink and white flowers was just beautiful inside the Library.

The wedding ceremony was held in the Boston Public Library’s Courtyard Restaurant, which featured four towering floral arrangements of white, pink, and green. Following the “I do”s, guests moved to the Map Room Cafe for cocktails while we took the newlyweds around the Boston Public Library for some evening portraits of just the two of them. The Guastavino Room was transformed with a very modern flare for the evening celebration. Metallic silver linens, mirror-top tables, gorgeous white chairs, and classic green, white, and pink floral arrangements filled this already beautiful space — the mix of modern decor with the classic old books and exposed brick of the Guastavino Room was just gorgeous.

We were so happy to be a part of this wedding day — Laura and Mike could not have been sweeter and we wish them all the best in their next step on the West Coast! Special thanks to Alice Fay and the team at the Fairmont for giving us beautiful spaces for formal photos outside of the rain, and to Faith and The Catered Affair team at the Boston Public Library.

It was destination Boston for New York couple Ashley and Ben for their Boston Public Library wedding. Everything about their day from getting ready and the first look at the picturesque Fairmont Copley Plaza to their ceremony and reception at the library was picture perfect and we are so happy to have been chosen to capture the day for this great couple.

From Ashley – “We have been together for 7 years, so we always knew that we wanted a small and intimate wedding, surrounded by only our closest family and friends who know us and love us inside and out and have watched us grow together a couple. Our wedding was just that- you could feel the love, warmth and genuine happiness and joy permeate through the entire Boston Public Library. It was something that really stood out. That was one of the most special aspects. It was also really incredible to have everyone in Boston together – most of our guests, ourselves included, live in New York City- but bringing everyone together in Boston, where we first met, (and where bride’s parents met!) in the most beautiful, elegant, classic setting of the Boston Public Library, was so meaningful and a memory that will forever fill our hearts.”

Ashley and Ben chose Marc Hall Design to create their dream vision that complimented the stunning spaces of the library perfectly. For their traditional Jewish ceremony in the Courtyard Restaurant, the chuppah was created out of multiple shades of blush and pink as to not hint too much for the reception centerpieces. Designer David DiCicco says “Every bride says they want something different, but Ashley wanted to make sure that every centerpiece had a different shape and was filled with color. The traditional white wedding was swapped with the fall vision for gorgeous jewel tones, shades of sapphire, ruby, amethyst, garnet and topaz.”

A big highlight for the newlyweds was their first dance. “We combined the song we recorded from our Save the Date video with other favorite Justin Timberlake (our favorite artist) songs mashed up and worked on the choreographed dance for months to surprise our guests! Everyone was so excited and it really got the energy going for the whole night! It was so fun practicing together for so many months to finally perform live for all of our friends and family!”

A big thank you to Bryanne, Erica and their team at The Catered Affair at the Boston Public Library and congratulations Ashley and Ben!

The Boston Public Library Wedding of Ashley + Ben with Marc Hall Design by Person + Killian Photography – 251 Newbury Street – Boston, MA 02116 – 617.236.1662

This beautiful Boston Public Library wedding in Copley Square was a true tribute to all things “Boston”. Joc and Zac first met while both attending Harvard University (Joc was on the swim team while Zac was on the diving team), and their Fall wedding day incorporated both a tribute to Boston’s rich history as well as a modern nod to the city’s bright future.

The entire wedding celebration took place in Boston’s Copley Square, starting with both grooms getting ready at the Fairmont Copley Boston. They had their first look inside the hotel, before heading outside for some formal photos. The couple was joined by their handsome labradoodle Winston (who also made an appearance in Joc and Zac engagement photos last Fall) as well as their wedding party for photos around Copley Square and inside the Boston Public Library.

The wedding ceremony was held inside Boston’s Old South Church, a significant site in Boston’s history, and included a reading from the 2004 legalization of gay marriage in the state of Massachusetts. Joc and Zac said their “I do”s surrounded by friends, family, and loved ones — then it was back to the Boston Public Library to get the party started!

The couple was drawn to the Boston Public Library for its deep historical roots in Boston (it was founded back in 1848), but also wanted to elevate the space with a modern color palette and unique personal touches. The white table runners for the reception in Bates Hall were accented by gold-vased floral arrangements and black and gold accents on each tabletop. The Abbey Room next door was set up for a night of dancing, with gold and black high-top cocktail tables and a decadent dessert bar for everyone to enjoy. The grooms made a special request for 90’s pop tunes for dancing, and it was clear everyone was thrilled to be there to celebrate with this wonderful couple.

We were so happy to be able to share this wedding day with Joc and Zac. Special thanks to the couple, as well as the entire team at The Catered Affair and the Boston Public Library for a spectacular event.

Thank you to Carol Silverston (The Original Touch) and Jodi Raphael (Jodi Raphael Events) and their teams for creating this stunning look and for always being a joy to work with!

“Modern Magnetism – A clean color palette of white and gold creates a feeling of refined glamour in the swanky hotel ballroom at The Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston.

Kari had always loved the pure elegance of an all-white wedding with the richness of added gold accents. She knew this sophisticated combination was exactly what she wanted and so the planning began. Venue selection was simple since she fell in love instantly with the gilded, old-world architecture of the ballroom at The Fairmont Copley Plaza and knew it could be juxtaposed with modern décor. The combined talents of Jodi Raphael Events and Carol Silverston brought Kari’s vision to life. Long mirrored tables were adorned with pure white flora and glistening candles. Round tables surrounded by Lucite chairs were decorated with cascading orchids in tall crystal vases. Jodi and Carol were both amazing to work with. I had a distinct look and high expectations for how the décor would turn out and the result was flawless,” gushed Kari.”

Laura and Mike wanted to capture a winter wonderland for their January wedding at the Fairmont Copley Plaza. Little did they know they would have an actual snow filled day from start to finish. Because this was a destination wedding for the couple who live in DC, almost all of their guests were already staying in the hotel. This meant everyone could enjoy watching the snow from the comfort of the beautiful hotel as it fell in Copley Square. We were beyond thrilled when Laura asked us to take her and Mike outside for some photos of the two of them. We even headed back out with the wedding party who were all great sports so that we could capture some fun shots with the group and it was well worth it!

Laura and Mike chose to incorporate the gold throughout the venue and mix in blush tones for their color pallet. In addition, everything including the flowers, styles, food, venue was inspired by Laura’s love of France. The traditional Jewish ceremony took place in the Oval Room under a gorgeous chuppah designed by Lotus Floral Events and lit perfectly by Suzanne B. Lowell and her team at Suzanne B. Lowell Lighting Design.

Following the ceremony, guests continued the celebration into the night in the ballroom. Planner and coordinator Janie Haas and her team at  Janie Haas Events created the perfect look for Laura and Mike.  From Janie: “Instead of using whites and silvers on the round tables, we opted to use a heavy gorgeous silvery green/gray embroidered fabric on the round tables which were accented with creamy flowers with high white branches. While the fast falling snow outside cooperated with the look that we were trying to achieve inside, our goal was to bring the feeling of romance and dreaminess into the ballroom. Suzanne’s lighting was magical as it lit crystals in both the centerpieces and the stage.”

Congratulations Laura and Mike. We are absolutely thrilled to have had the chance to start off 2017 with such a fantastic group! A big thank you to Alice Fay and her team at the Fairmont Copley Plaza and to Janie, Maria and the team at Janie Haas Events!

Suzy and Pat wanted the look and feel of their wedding to be classic, timeless and elegant with a touch of fairy tale and the Fairmont Copley Plaza was the perfect location. After the getting ready and first look at the Fairmont, we headed to the Commonwealth Avenue Mall for photos as well as the Boston College campus before the ceremony at St. Ignatius. Cocktail hour took place back at the hotel in the Venetian Room and the reception took place in the Oval Room with music by Groove Authority keeping the celebration going and guests on their feet.

Suzy and Pat chose mint green, pale pinks and gold for the colors of the day with the bridesmaids in floor length mint green dresses by Amsale from Allegria Bridal of Belmont. The flowers were a mix of white hydrangeas with shades of pink peonies and roses. The gold throughout the venue was accented with pops in everything from the menus to the Suzy and her bridesmaid’s shoes.

From the bride: “Pat and I met at Boston College, so we always knew we wanted to get married at St. Ignatius Church on the BC campus. The Fairmont Copley Plaza was always where I wanted to have my wedding reception. As a child, my dad would take me every year into Boston for First Night each New Year’s Day to see the ice sculptures. I would always love seeing the gold lion statues outside of the Copley. When I was six, there had been a New Year’s Eve wedding the night before and they were having brunch the next morning in the Oval Room. I peaked my head into the room and told my dad I was going to have my wedding at the Copley when I grew up.”

A big congratulations to the newlyweds Suzy + Pat and thank  you to the amazing team at the Fairmont Copley Plaza for always being so wonderful to work with!

We were so excited when we got the phone call from Lindsay + Greg for this wedding — we had worked with Lindsay’s family a few years ago, and we could not wait to reconnect for another wonderful event! This time around it was a gorgeous summer wedding at the Boston Public Library, and we had a blast celebrating with this fun and adorable couple.

We started the weekend at the rehearsal dinner Friday night, which took place at the Downtown Harvard Club of Boston. The dinner had a fun, seaside flair with classic white and blue decor, and beautiful floral centerpieces featuring seashells, starfish, and natural drift wood by Carol Silverston. We rejoined the bride and groom the next morning where everyone got ready at the beautiful Fairmont Copley Plaza right in the heart of Copley Square. Once they were ready to go we made the short walk across the street to the Boston Public Library.

The afternoon ceremony took place out in the stunning Boston Public Library Courtyard, which features lush summer greenery and a beautiful fountain right in the center. The bride and groom decided not to see each other before the walk down the aisle, and we loved seeing Greg’s face when he finally saw his bride! After the I Do’s, which took place under a gorgeous Chuppah, we took the newlyweds inside for some family formals on the Boston Public Library’s grand staircase. While the rest of the guests and bridal party enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, we took Lindsay and Greg around the library for photos of just the two of them.

The evening reception took place in the Library’s Guastavino Room, which was transformed with modern mirror-top tables, white and silver linens, and a mix of black and clear chairs around each. Carol Silverston of The Original Touch created the beautiful decor and floral designs, which included  mixes of towering white and pink arrangements on each table for a wonderful pop of color. A patterned wash of cool blue and purple light gave the room a bright and colorful glow, which looked amazing on the black dance floor.

The bride and groom had so much fun and it was contagious throughout the night! Guests enjoyed their first dance (concluding with a fast choreographed portion that got everyone cheering), as well as toasts from friends and family before hitting the dance floor, packing into the photo booth, and having an absolute blast with the happy couple. The after party moved into the Boston Public Library’s Map Room and Cafe, that included a ping pong table, corn hole and giant Jenga.

We could not have been happier to share this day with Lindsay, Greg, and their wonderful families. Special thanks to the entire Catered Affair Team at the Boston Public Library, as well as Carol Silverston, Jodi Raphael and their team for such a wonderful event.

Erica & Mike live and planned their wedding from NYC, so they ended up booking Person + Killian Photography over the phone. We had the pleasure of meeting them for the first time at their Engagement session in Newport, RI. From the minute this chic couple stepped in front of Lauren’s camera, she knew their wedding day  at the Boston Public Library would be nothing short of incredible.

The bride wore an amazing Monique Lhuillier dress that photographed perfectly with the beautiful pillars, unique architecture and outdoor courtyard of the Boston Public Library. Also, we loved the “library themed” details that were carried throughout their reception. For example, a library card catalog filled with flowers at the escort table was filled with adoraroble seating cards (which looked like library checkout cards).

A beautiful couple with fantastic taste having their wedding at the Boston Public Library….what more could you ask for?!
