Amy + Craig had a spectacular wedding weekend and all events took place at the beautiful InterContinental Hotel Boston. The celebration began with the Ketubah signing and rehearsal on Friday evening and we were back Saturday afternoon for the ceremony and reception.

The grounds outside in the back of the hotel made for the perfect location for Amy and Craig’s emotional and fun first look. We spent some time with the couple, their family and wedding party outside before heading inside for some more photographs in the gorgeous lobby of the hotel. We even had the opportunity to take a couple of pictures of the bride and groom in the hotel champagne lounge before the ceremony.

The Rose Kennedy Ballroom was transformed for the ceremony with dramatic lighting that highlighted the floral arrangements lining the isle to the stunning custom designed chuppah by Carol Silverston and her team. After the ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests enjoyed hors devours in the foyer while the ballroom was once again transformed for the reception.

Various tables shapes including square, rectangle and rounds filled the ballroom with several different linen and table decor designs. The blush colors mixed with gold and cream popped against the black dance floor and uplighting. The band Eye 2 Eye welcomed guests back into the ballroom for a night full of dinner, heart felt toasts, dancing – and more dancing. Towards the end of the night, guests were wowed with a custom desert display that had been setup behind the drapes.

We had a fabulous time capturing such a fun and energetic group throughout the events of their wedding weekend. Thank you so much to Paul, Michelle and their team at the InterContinental Hotel Boston for always being such a pleasure to work with, to Carol, Jodi and their incredible team and congratulations again to Amy + Craig!

InterContinental Hotel Boston Wedding of Amy + Craig – Photographed by Person + Killian Photography – 251 Newbury Street – Boston, MA 02116 – 617.236.1662

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.

Alexandra and Christopher were an all-around adorable couple, and their beautiful Four Seasons Hotel Boston Wedding was elegant, traditional, celebratory, and — most of all — fun!

Alex wore a stunning strapless wedding gown and carried a bouquet of classic white flowers included roses, peonies, and long white calla lilies all bundled together with lace from her mother’s vail. Her bridal party carried simple white rose bouquets and wore elegant navy blue dresses to perfectly compliment the bride! Alex + Chris had their “first look” at the top of the Four Seasons Hotel Boston grand staircase, and the groom’s expression upon seeing his bride for the first time was one in a million. We took some quick photos with Alex + Chris on the elegant staircase, before heading across the street to the Boston Public Garden for some outdoor Photos.

When we came back to the Four Seasons, we were met by Alex + Chris’ closest friends and family to do all of their formal wedding photography. The bride and groom chose to do all of their formal photos before the wedding ceremony, so they would be able to join their guests at cocktail hour following the wedding! We finished up the family photos, Alex + Chris’ signed their Ketubah (a traditional Jewish wedding document), and it was time for the ceremony. Alex + Chris said their “I dos” underneath a stunning white Chuppah in the Four Seasons Boston’s Governor’s Room. The Chuppah was adorned with white orchids, and two large white rose arrangements stood on either side of the aisle.

The bride and groom got a sneak-peek of the ballroom before the reception began — it was beautiful with classic white ballroom chairs and a mix of white and silver linens. The tables featured a blend of low white rose floral arrangements, and tall centerpieces with a gorgeous pop of red flowers to accent the room. The ballrooms natural color was accented with soft candlelight that gave the space a warm, intimate glow.

We were so thrilled to share this day with a truly wonderful bride and groom — thank you for being so happy, easy-going, and fun! Special thanks to Philip Deschamps at the Four Seasons Hotel Boston, Carol Silverston -The Original Touch and Jodi Raphael Events  for a truly beautiful event. Congratulations Alex + Chris!

It’s not often we get to photograph an entire Mitzvah celebration — morning service and all — but this past Sunday afternoon Jacob’s Bar Mitzvah was a welcome exception!

Person + Killian Photography had a great time with Jacob and his whole family at this event, which began at the Congregation Kehillath Israel in Brookline with a tradition morning service, followed by a reception luncheon at the temple. Everything ran smoothly and looked gorgeous thanks to Carol Silverston and Jodi Raphael Events who did all of the planning and floral design for the celebration. After a short afternoon break, the evening dinner party kicked off a few hours later at Bella Luna Restaurant in Jamaica Plain.  Klass Universal Entertainment kept kids dancing all night!

Thanks to Jacob and the whole family for a great day, and for letting Person + Killian be a part of it! Below are some of the highlights from Jacob’s big day:
