Amanda and Paul’s Fairmont Copley Plaza Boston wedding was special for so many reasons — the fun and beautiful couple, the gorgeous decor, the spectacular venue. On top of all of that, we got to reconnect with two of our recent P+K couples (Samantha + Bobby and Erika + Jimmy) who are friends with the bride and groom! This means we got to spend lots of time with Amanda and Paul before their wedding day, which made it even more special when we got to see these two become husband and wife.

Amanda described the vision for her wedding day as “summer glamour . . . a luxurious modern twist on modern elegance”. They chose a color palette of rose gold, blush, lilac, white and gold — a perfect compliment to the Fairmont Copley Plaza’s elegant decor. Paul and his groomsmen were joined by the couple’s dog Bandit while they got ready for the day (we got to meet Bandit last year at Amanda and Paul’s engagement session). Once they were ready, the bride and groom met outside the Fairmont for their first look and formal photos around the hotel and Copley Square with their wedding party. We had time for a few more photos with the couple inside the Fairmont before moving into the Fairmont Copley Plaza Grand Ballroom for the ceremony.

Amanda and Paul were married underneath a stunning floral chuppah from Marc Hall Designs. The aisle was lined with towering white floral arrangements on mirrored pedestals and the couple said their “I do”s in a traditional Jewish wedding ceremony. While guests enjoyed cocktails following the ceremony, the Grand Ballroom was transformed for the evening reception. Soft purple lighting, a custom “A&P” light monogram, white and lilac floral arrangements and a touch of gold made for an absolutely stunning celebration.

It was a real treat for us to reconnect with so many of our recent couples and make new memories with Amanda and Paul. And nothing beats working with such a great team of our industry friends, including SH Videography, Marc Hall Design and of course Alice Fay and her incredible team at the Fairmont Copley Plaza Boston. Thank you to all of you for such a memorable evening!

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’s time for the winter wedding season to begin! This elegant and modern wedding was extra special for a few reasons — not only is the bride a long-time Boston wedding industry colleague and fabulous wedding planner, but this was one of the first events in the Boston Public Library’s brand new Boylston Hall. Paige and Chris added so many sweet personal touches, and really made their wedding day special for the two of them and all of their guests.

The wedding day started at the Fairmont Copley, and we didn’t need to stray far from Copley Square for any of the special events. Paige and Chris got ready inside the hotel, then met outside in the Square for their first look. We took advantage of the fountains, the city streets, and the wreath-covered Boston Public Library for some romantic photos of the bride and groom. We were then joined by the wedding part inside the Boston Public Library for formal photos of the whole group, and we had plenty of gorgeous places to choose from inside the historic building. The wedding ceremony was held in the Boston Public Library Courtyard, which was lined with candles, white pillars, and towering green florals while Paige and Chris said their “I do”s.

The wedding reception brought a special treat for guests and for us — it was held in the Boston Public Library’s brand new Boylston Hall. This was the first time we’ve seen the new space for an event, and it is a perfect addition to the Boston Public Library’s already gorgeous venue. Paige and Chris chose a modern and elegant color palette of black, white, and crystal, a perfect contrast to the Boylston Hall’s marbled floors and high ceilings. A few tall green and white centerpieces added a beautiful pop of color to the room, which otherwise stayed true to the modern black and white decor. The talented teams at Marc Hall Design, PEAK Event Services, RESERVE Modern Event Rental and ALPS Lighting executed Paige’s vision to perfection.

We loved the personal touches Paige and Chris added to their wedding celebration, including a surprise entrance under a baseball bat tunnel (Chris is a baseball fan), and a “cutting the pizza” in lieu of cutting the cake. Their wedding day was a true reflection of their unique relationship, and we were so happy to share this wonderful day with them.

Earlier this month the Boston wedding and event industry was introduced to a new venue. While the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum has been open for public forums for years, they are officially now available for social events. The JFK Library team along with their exclusive partners Gourmet Caterers hosted the launch party and we love that we were asked to capture the evening.

This breathtaking local is located at Columbia Point on the Boston Harbor with the city skyline as its backdrop. Guests were invited to cocktails in the Museum Pavilion. This nine-story glass atrium overlooking the harbor was set for a ceremony with floral design by Artistic Blossoms and furniture from Reserve Modern Event Rental. The Gilded Harps provided the music, hors d’oeuvres and food stations were provided by the Gourmet team that included a caviar station.

As the sun set, the celebration moved into Smith Hall which was designed for a reception immaculately with floral design by the team at Marc Hall Design, furniture from Reserve, lighting by Design Light and band provided by Entertainment Specialists.

We are so glad we had the opportunity to be part of this fantastic night and look forward to working in this stunning space in the future!

John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum – Boston’s Newest Wedding Venue – Launch Party Celebration with Gourmet Caterers – By Person + Killian Photography

It’s officially wedding planning season and with that comes new issues of all of our favorite magazines on newsstands. We are excited to see the real wedding of Ashley and Brian in the latest issue of Boston Weddings Magazine.

Story by: Jule Suratt – “When the bride-to-be Ashley Swafford was searching for a photographer to capture her wedding to fiancé Brian Petruzzelli, she had just one request: a portrait in the middle of Boylston Street. “If you can make that happen,” she told shutterbug Jill Person, “you’re my girl.”

Ashley had always felt a strong connection to New England, but living in Las Vegas, it was hard to find someone who shared her affinity for the region. So when she met Brian at a mutual friend’s party, she instantly connected with the Dedham native. “He had that Boston swagger about him,” she says. “He was a tough guy with a soft side.”

A year and a half after they started dating, Ashley, who travels frequently for work, was grounded by a massive snowstorm in Springfield, Missouri. She eventually got back to Las Vegas – 12 hours later. Brian met her at the airport holding flowers. “I used to joke that the airport was the only place I could see her, that had to catch her either coming or going,” he says. So he did, getting down on one knee and proposing before a crowd. “I said yes.” says Ashley, “once I caught my breath. It was magical.”

Thank you to Boston Weddings for featuring this beautiful wedding and to Eric Czerlonka and his team at Czerlonka Event Design & Management for sending this lovely couple our way.

Thank you to this A-team for creating the wedding of Ashley and Brian’s dreams that we were able to capture:

Lowell Lighting Design; Band: Night Shift Entertainment – Soho; Bride’s Dress: Vera Wang; Inbal Dror, Blush Bridal (reception); Calligraphy: Suzanne Telage; Invitations: Shopannabelle’s; Hair: Escape Salon Aveda; Makeup: Chanel, Saks Fifth Avenue; Menswear: Tom Ford; Officiant: Father Kevin O’Leary – Cathedral of the Holy Cross; Rentals: Luxe Event Rentals; Wedding Bands: Tiffany & Co.

We see a lot of beautiful things in our line of work; this Four Seasons Hotel Boston Wedding with Marc Hall Design is exquisite. The couple, Liz and Mike, wanted a beautiful affair that had an air of ease and intimacy. Starting the day in a suite at the Four Seasons, Liz was in full swing getting ready. Mike was likewise prepping in his room where friends and family popped by for a quick hello before he dressed to meet his bride.

With such a beautiful day, we headed over to the Boston Public Gardens to capture the First Look. Surrounded by the abundant greenery the gardens have to offer, we took this time to capture some formals before heading back to the hotel to wrap up the wedding party formals.

The Grand Ballroom was transformed with an archway full of gorgeous, lush blooms in shades of whites and creams for the ceremony. Liz’s brother officiated as the couple exchanged vows in the presence of their loved ones. After the ceremony, we made our way to the Aujourd’hui Room for cocktail hour while the Grand Ballroom underwent another transformation.

First to greet the guests was an escort card table in the round. A magnificent floral display of roses and orchids accented with candles. Between the lighting, linens and beautiful centerpieces, the reception space felt sophisticated with warm tones of creams, blushes and gold. As the evening progressed, it was clear that the couple and their guests was enjoying themselves. From the decident dessert display and fun photo booth to the packed dance floor, what’s not to love?

Thank you Liz and Mike for letting Person + Killian be a part of this beautiful day! As always a big thank you to Philip Deschamps for being an absolute joy to work with.

Andrea + Nolan’s beautiful Spring Winchester Country Club wedding took place this month, and Person + Killian Photography was thrilled to be there to capture it all!

The bride, Andrea, who got ready beforehand at the parents’ home nearby, was accompanied by seven bridesmaids, two flower girls, and a maid of honor, all excited to be apart of her wedding day. Her stunning Pnina Tornai dress from Kleinfeld Bridal, fit her perfectly, and was accessorized with a beautiful beaded belt around her waist. She lit up the room with her ecstatic smile and flawless hair and makeup. After the church ceremony, the guests then ventured to the Winchester Country Club, where we had the pleasure of taking their photos around the lush green Country Club grounds. The photos were then followed by a cocktail hour which took place under a beautiful tent. And the socializing and fun didn’t stop, as the cocktail hour ended and the reception at the club house ensued. The decor continued to stun everyone, every detail perfectly executed by the talented team at Marc Hall Design.  The reception was breathtakingly sophisticated, filled with brightly lit candles, custom white drapes, large mirrors, and gorgeous florals.

Andrea + Nolan continued to dance the night away with their friends and family, well into the after party. This Winchester Country Club Wedding was one of the highlights of our Spring so far, and we wish Andrea + Nolan all the best for the future!

TKR16SS_NECover.inddWith freshly fallen snow on the ground throughout New England we could not be more excited to see the latest Spring/Summer 2016 issue of The Knot New England out on newsstands and in stores everywhere. The latest issue features the real of wedding of Meghan and Tim at Taj Boston. This gorgeous wedding was designed by the incredibly talented team at Marc Hall Design and we are thrilled to see it in print.

From The Knot “Meghan Altman (a national account director at GSK) and Tim Stoll (a senior director at BioMed Realty) pulled off a chic, modern wedding at Taj Boston in Boston, Massachusetts, with over-the-top floral arrangements and a sophisticated black, white and silver palette. A traditional Catholic ceremony at Cathedral of the Holy Cross preceded the reception, the 19th-century Gothic Revival architecture and tall arrangements of white cherry blossoms provided a dramatic backdrop for the occasion. For the reception, Meghan and Tim turned to Taj Boston, a 1927 landmark hotel with an enviable address overlooking Boston Public Garden. The pair passed on the venue’s many opulent jewel-box ballrooms, instead hosting the post-ceremony festivities on the roof, where guests profited from 180-degree views of the Boston skyline. The talented team at Marc Hall Design transformed the space into a modern-day Garden of Eden with suspended floral installations and fresh bunches of white peonies and calla lilies. Candlelight filled the room with a warm, ambient glow and details like place-inspired table names put a personal spin on the chic decor. The couple made sure no guest went hungry, filling cocktail hour and dinner with seemingly endless eats like tuna tartare, New York sirloin and more. The band Soho blew everyone out of the water and kept the party going late into the night. The couple surprised everyone with a crepe station, a nod to their engagement in Paris, France, and sent guests home with a few sweet treats. A tip from Meghan: “Decide as a couple what your top priorities are and stick with them. There is no need to fret about minute details that you simply don’t have time to get to. Spend time selecting your vendors and make sure you enjoy them. Trust the professionals you decide on and rely on them to create the vision you share. Enjoy the planning and the journey through your engagement.”

Thank you to The Knot New England for featuring one of our weddings and a big thank you again to Meghan and Tim for being such a joy to capture on their wedding day!

Want to beautifully wrap luxury, elegance, and sophistication all up into one? Look no further because the talent of Czerlonka Event Design & Management and Marc Hall Design for Jenn and Michael’s wedding at the Ritz-Carlton Boston will be sure to wow.

Our sweet, head-over-heels in love couple, Jenn and Michael, pulled at everyone’s heartstrings during their beautiful traditional Jewish ceremony. The couple was joined under a Marc Hall custom-made birch chuppah bursting with cascading lush hydrangeas and orchids.

A softly sophisticated palate of ivory, cream, touches of blush, and silver and crystal accents of glamour transformed the Ritz ballroom into a simply dreamlike setting. From our gorgeous bride’s striking Marc Hall couture custom floor-length bouquet, to statement floral centerpieces, and a stunning 4-tiered cake of delicate floral piping, this wedding was one jaw-dropping beautiful detail after another.

A big thank you to Eric Czerlonka and Vanessa Michael and her team at the Ritz. Congratulations again Jenn and Michael. It was truly an honor documenting your special day and we wish you a lifetime full of love and happiness!

A gorgeous spring day and classic Back Bay location made for the perfect combination for Meghan and Tim’s springtime wedding at the Taj Boston. After getting ready at the hotel, Meghan and Tim met for their first look at the top of the Taj’s grand staircase. The couple chose the Taj for many reasons including the sentiment as Meghan’s parents had gotten married there. Meghan even had the room key from her parents stay years ago when it was the Ritz.

The bride, groom and their wedding party headed to the Boston Public Garden for some photos amidst the blooming foliage, before heading to the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in South Boston for the ceremony. The stunning cathedral with its stained glass windows and magnificent architecture made for an ideal location for Meghan and Tim to exchange their vows.

The cocktail hour and reception took place on the rooftop of the Taj. Famous for its panoramic views of the Boston skyline, the space was elegantly designed by the team at Marc Hall Designs. In springtime tones of green and white, the flowers filled not only the table tops but were also suspended from the ceiling. Combined with the sunset, multiple chandeliers, candle light, floor to ceiling mirrors, the music of SoHo and picture perfect view, Meghan, Tim and their guests celebrated into the evening hours surrounded by this breathtaking atmosphere.

Thank you to the teams at the Taj and Marc Hall Designs for being absolutely amazing to work with as always and a big congratulations and thank you to Meghan and Tim for having us there to capture your beautiful celebration!

The Cape has always been the “happy place” for both Jessica + Jon. Jessica’s family summered on the Cape for her entire life, and Jon’s family has set their roots on the Cape for over 50 years! When it came time for the two to plan their wedding, choosing the Cape was an easy decision. We joined Jessica + Jon for a beautiful weekend at the Wychmere Beach Club, which included a traditional New England lobster bake, seaside photos, a classic church wedding ceremony, and an elegant black tie wedding reception with a contemporary urban twist.

The weekend started on Friday evening, with a classic lobster bake rehearsal dinner. A tent was installed on the Wychmere Beach Club’s private beach, overlooking the beautiful New England seaside. Customized games (which would make another appearance at the cocktail hour the following day!) were set up on the sand for guests to play and rustic wooden lanterns were set up along the boardwalk to light the way. Everyone enjoyed dinner, while Jessica + Jon heard special toasts from their closest family and friends. As soon as the sun set, the tent was lit up with sparkling strings of lights and a bonfire was roaring out on the beach for everyone to enjoy.

The next morning began the wedding day — Jessica and her bridesmaids got ready in the Wychmere Beach House’s bridal suite, while Jon and his groomsmen hung out in the Wychmere Cottage (sometimes called the “Groom Cottage” for weddings)! The bride’s bouquet was a gorgeous mix of greens, white roses, and deep red flowers — perfect for an early Autumn wedding. She chose a strapless, mermaid-cut Anna Maier gown, matched with sparkly Jimmy Choo shoes and a glittering silver hair piece. We left her bridal party inside to finish getting ready while we took Jessica out onto the beach for her first look with Jon!

The bride and groom had their first look on the boardwalk overlooking the Cape Cod beach. We braved the blustery wind to get some great shots of the happy couple along the beautiful beach before heading back inside. We took a few more romantic photos of Jessica + Jon inside the Wychmere before we were joined by the bridal party and family for formal photos. Following formals, the wedding party hopped a ride in a Cape Cod Trolley to the wedding ceremony while Jessica rode with her dad in a classic white Rolls Royce.

After the traditional wedding ceremony at the nearby Pilgrim Congregational, guests headed back to the Wychmere to await the big arrival of the happy newlyweds. Jessica + Jon made their grand entrance to cocktails on a sailboat, while everyone cheered them on from the dock! Some guests stayed outside to enjoy the seaside view and lawn games, while others moved inside for the hors d’oeuvres and raw bar in the Wychmere’s Hydrangea Room.

The elegant evening reception took place in the Harbor Room, named for the panoramic windows giving a perfect view of the Cape Cod harbor right outside. The tables were topped with silver linens, with accented pops of dark navy blue from the table name cards and ribbon-wrapped candy boxes on each place setting. The wooden beamed ceiling and silver chandeliers made the room elegant and contemporary, and the towering white floral centerpieces from Marc Hall Design were definite show-stoppers. Jessica + Jon’s custom “J&J” monogram was even projected onto the dance floor using lights.

We absolutely loved being a part of this traditional black tie Cape Cod wedding at the Wychmere Beach Club, especially knowing how special the Cape was for Jessica, Jon, and their families! Thank you to the fantastic group of vendors we got to work with, the entire team at the Wychmere, and Jessica + Jon for letting us be a part of your fabulous Cape Cod wedding day.
