We are so lucky to work in an industry where our friends and colleagues can introduce us to such wonderful new brides and grooms. This fantastic couple came to us by way of Jodi Raphael, whose team at Jodi Raphael Events was already planning a gorgeous and modern wedding day for Amanda and Zach. Though they currently live in New York City, Amanda and Zach decided to come back to Amanda’s hometown of Boston for their fall wedding celebration.

The couple chose the newly renovated Boston Marriott Long Wharf for their venue, and began their wedding day in the suites getting ready. To contrast the classic white of the wedding, they chose accents of navy blue in the bridesmaid dresses, Zach’s suit jacket, and Amanda’s blue high heels. The couple met in Columbus Park right next to the Marriott for their first look, and we took them around the park and out to the waterfront for formal photos. The wedding party joined us in Columbus Park for group shots, then it was back to the Boston Marriott Long Wharf to begin the ceremony.

The couple was married in a traditional Jewish ceremony which began with the signing of the Ketubah in front of an intimate group of family and friends. Then it was into the Marriott Long Wharf Ballroom for the ceremony itself, which took place under a gorgeous white floral chuppah with soft purple lighting and candles lining the aisle. Guests moved to the Palm Garden room for cocktails following the ceremony, while the Ballroom was transformed for the evening reception. The team at Jodi Raphael Events pulled out all the stops for this elegant and modern celebration, which featured an eclectic mix of round, square, and rectangular dining tables, towering white floral centerpieces in silver vessels, and hundreds of soft candles throughout the room. Amanda and Zach had quite a crowd to share in their celebration, over 325 guests, and everyone was excited to get the party started!

We were so thrilled to be there to share this day with Amanda, Zach, and all of their friends and family. Special thanks to the Boston Marriott Long Wharf, and to the team at Jodi Raphael Events for a beautiful event and for sending this wonderful couple our way. Mazel Tov Amanda and Zach!

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!

Situated right in the heart of the Back Bay in Boston, the Four Seasons Hotel is one of our favorite venues for a summer wedding. The location was perfect for the traditional Jewish celebration for newlyweds Jane and David.

Before the guests arrived, Jane and David met for their first look on the grand staircase followed by photos across the street in the Public Garden on a perfect summer day.  Following their Ketubah ceremony, Jane and David said their “I do”s in a traditional Jewish wedding ceremony, encircled by their loved ones and underneath a gorgeous birch and ivy chuppah in the Governor’s Room. Everyone enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in the ballroom foyer before heading into the ballroom for the reception.

The Four Seasons Hotel ballroom’s clean and elegant atmosphere was perfectly enhanced by the touches of white, gold, and summer pink in Jane and David’s wedding decor. Crystal vases held a mix of high and low floral arrangements, pouring over with pink, white, and lush green flowers — the ideal accent for a summer wedding in Boston. Guests enjoyed drinks, dinner, and a toast from the bride and groom, while dancing away the night with the help of music from band District 21. It was a beautiful celebration of a wonderful couple — special thanks to Jane and David for letting us be a part of your wedding day, and to Philip Deschamps and his entire team at the Four Seasons Hotel.

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!

Leah and Craig’s sweet fall wedding at Boston’s Fairmont Copley Plaza was full of tradition and love. We began the crisp fall day joining the wedding parties in their suites at the Fairmont. We found Leah and her loved ones preparing for the couple’s First Look. Leah dressed in a gorgeous ruffled gown from Michael De Paulo with sparkly Jimmy Choo shoes. A lush and light bouquet of mixed fall flowers completed her stunning look. We captured a few fun moments of Craig before he dressed in a formal black-tie tuxedo and we made our way to the much anticipated First Look.

After a private and tender moment seeing each other for the first time, Leah and Craig readied for their Bedeken or Veiling Ceremony. This Jewish tradition involves the veiling of the bride — the bedeken — “where the bride and groom’s families meet and the groom confirms that the bride is his intended, then covers her face with a veil.” (and what a veil it was!) Immediately following, the wedding ceremony was in the Grand Ballroom under a customary wedding chuppah. A white aisle runner laden with petals led to a polished and reflective chuppah that was surrounded by lush floral arrangements. After the traditional ceremony, guests headed to cocktail hour where the atmosphere was cheerful, full with great conversations. Guests made their way back to the transformed Grand Ballroom for the reception. The ballroom was radiant with a complementing palette of golds and creams with pops of fall colors. Tall floral arrangements with candlelight and gold-rimmed mirrored table numbers felt right at home in the ballroom. Full of laughter and celebrations, the evening continued with toasts, dinner and lots and lots of dancing!

We adored capturing this sweet & loving couple’s day; Leah and Craig – you and your families are both gracious and kind – thank you for letting Person + Killian Photography capture this exceptional day! As always, thank you to our fellow vendors, and Tracey Gavin and her skillful team at the Fairmont!

On a warm September evening, we were thrilled to join Simin +  Nick at the bride’s family home to see their wedding inspiration come to life. The couples vision for their wedding was elegant, magical and romantic. An evening that has the look and feel of a Midsummer Night’s Dream, complete with a lush garden setting, twinkling lights and a star-filled sky.

With a beautiful blend of Persian and Jewish heritages, Simin and Nick had a sweet and touching ceremony. Simin’s family’s backyard magically transformed into soft palate of blush, ivory, and green creating an elegant backdrop for this gorgeous couple! An enchanting Sperry Tent was beautifully transformed by the incredible teams at Winston Flowers, Rentals Unlimited, and Simeral & Co. Guests enjoyed the live music of Sultans of Swing, including a beautiful rendition of the classic Ella Fitzgerald number, “Love is Here to Stay”, as Simin + Nick’s first dance. This beautiful couple celebrated their special day surrounded by loving family and friends. 

Congratulations to Simin + Nick and thank you for putting your trust in us to document this extraordinary celebration of love!

Shelley and Spencer wanted a riverfront Boston wedding that would truly capture the essence of this beautiful city. The Royal Sonesta Boston, with it’s scenic views of the famed Charles River was the perfect venue to grant that wish. We were thrilled to join the couple and their guests for their celebration!

Before the ceremony, the couple decided to have a moment to themselves. This touching moment took place outside, down by the Charles. Shelley looked stunning and elegant in her James Clifford lace gown. The scenic Boston city skyline was a breathtaking backdrop for their formal portraits. Taking advantage of the sunny and warm weather, the couple were joined by the wedding party for some formal and fun photo opportunities.

Under an intricate floral chuppah, featuring mixed fresh flowers and draping vines, Shelley and Spencer were wed  in a traditional and moving Jewish ceremony.

The Grand Ballroom was aglow in candle light, illuminating the modern floral touches and elegant stemware that sparkled throughout the room. With romantic twinkle lights setting the mood, the newlyweds had their first dance, before their guests joined in with an enthusiastic Hora!

Thank you to Jim Arnello, his talented team at the Royal Sonesta, and Carol Silverston of the Original Touch for coordinating this gorgeous event. Congratulations and Mazel Tov Shelley and Spencer!

Person + Killian Photography was thrilled to celebrate yet another gorgeous wedding at the Fairmont Copley Plaza in the heart of downtown Boston this weekend with newlyweds Michelle and Eric.

As soon as the couple saw the Fairmont Copley they knew it would be the perfect venue for their Boston wedding. It was especially important that their friends and family who had traveled from out-of-town be a part of the celebration; there’s no better place to see historic Boston than from the center of Copley Square!

The Grand Ballroom’s detailed and extravagant architecture provided the perfect backdrop for the beautiful floral arrangements by florist William Mizuta, and all of the decor for the evening included touches of Michelle’s favorite color — purple.

Following the beautiful Jewish ceremony on-site at the Fairmont, guests danced the night away with help of the band Night Shift , and indulged their sweet tooth at a custom candy bar. A celebratory Hora and night of dancing made this evening extra special for Michelle, Eric, and all of their loved ones.

Congratulations Michelle and Eric, and thank you for letting us be a part of your beautiful spring wedding in Boston!

For newlyweds Jessica and Andrew, the planning started off perfectly when the then bride-to-be found her Kenneth Pool dress at last years local Brides Against Breast Cancer event. From there, all of the perfect details for their spring wedding at the Royal Sonesta, Cambridge fell right into place with the guidance of Janie Haas Event Consulting and the Royal Sonesta team.

Jess’s vision and inspiration were a combination of a Frank Sinatra classic 1950’s feel and pink blush cherry blossom branches with gun-metal gray accents that were incorporated throughout the wedding day.

The the initial first look took place on one of the outdoor patios overlooking the Charles River and Boston Skyline followed by some wedding party and family photos in several locations throughout the hotel.

After all of the formal photos, it was off to sign the Ketubah prior to the ballroom ceremony that took the guests breath away when they saw the gorgeous chuppah created with real cherry blossom branches and bark by the team at Winston Flowers with lighting by Suzanne B. Lowell Lighting Design.

After cocktail hour, the celebration continued for 250 guests as they made their way back into the ballroom for the reception. Jess and Andrew alongside their friends and family celebrated until the early hours of the morning with the continuous entertainment of Beantown.

Congratulations Jessica and Andrew and thank you for choosing Person + Killian Photography to capture your beautiful wedding day!

Last weekend Person + Killian Photography had the pleasure of photographing the Liberty Hotel Boston wedding of Lisa & Beth. Not only are Lisa & Beth two of the sweetest people, but they have the most adorable children as well. It was certainly an honor to spend the day with all of them and document such a beautiful and loving couple and their family.

The intimate affair took place at The Liberty Hotel Boston and the couple chose black, white & fuchsia as their color inspiration. They also incorporated skeleton keys and brocade details throughout the wedding. Both brides looked stunning in wedding gowns custom designed by Daniel Faucher, and everyone enjoyed celebrating the night away with this great couple and their family.

A big thank you to Lisa and Beth for trusting Person + Killian Photography to be a part of this special day.

A few years back Person + Killian Photography had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of a dear friend in the industry, Stephanie (Penn) Solomon. Since then, we have grown to absolutely adore her entire family! Not only are they sweet and loving, they are extremely fun and certainly know how to throw a lavish affair! So, when Steph’s little sister Heather got engaged, we knew her  Spring Valley Country Club wedding to Adrian would be classic “Penn” style – lavish, lush, fun, and a blast to photograph!

Here are a few of our favorite moments from Heather & Adrain’s Jewish wedding at the lovely Spring Valley Country Club. When we asked Heather what the inspiration for her wedding was, she said, A 50’s super club filled with aubergine, silver, black & white colors.

It was great to work once again with the talented Tasha Bracken of a SD Events who described this wedding as modern chic with the use of different chairs, tables and linens and the glow bar.  The arrangements were ultra-modern and edgy with the use of large cylinders as was the escort card table with mirror top.

A big thanks to the dynamic duo, Jack and Naomi of GENERATIONS cinemastories for always being a pleasure to work with!

Last but not least, thank you to the Penn’s for trusting us with another important moment in your lives. As always, it was a pleasure capturing these memories for you.

Person + Killian Photography had the opportunity to once again photograph a wedding at the Boston Public Library for the wedding of Becky and Ari. The BPL, once a hidden jewel, is now the site of some of Boston’s most magnificent weddings thanks to the team at The Catered Affair. This was certainly the case for the newlyweds who utilized the picturesque space for all of the festivities of their day including formal photos atop the grand marble staircase.

The ceremony took place in the Courtyard Restaurant where Becky and Ari exchanged vows (along with lots of smiles and laughter) under the beautiful chuppah designed by Jeri Solomon Floral Designs.  From there it was cocktails in both the Map Room and the courtyard.

The festivities continued for the reception, which took place in the library’s Popular Reading Room. The couple and their guests wined, dined and danced the night away to the live performances from Java Jive. A couple of the guests even got involved with the band. One guest played a few songs on the trumpet and later in the evening there was a spectacular song performance from a family member that left everyone in awe.

Congratulations Becky and Ari! We had a fantastic time capturing your day that was full of wonderful moments throughout.
