Tags archives: Old North Church

Originally from New Jersey and New Hampshire, Colleen and Matt now call Boston home. The couple lives right in the heart of the North End just next door to the historic Old North Church. When it came time to decide upon a location for their ceremony, there was no question Boston’s oldest church was the perfect place.

Colleen and Matt used the city as the inspiration for their wedding day. The first look took place at Old City Hall and with time before the ceremony, we were able to spend time at the scenic Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park on the outskirts of the North End. Wedding guests were  treated to Old Town Trolley tours on the way to and from the ceremony.

The reception took place at the most quintessential classic Boston hotel – the historic and beautiful Omni Parker House. In keeping with the theme, tables were named after local landmarks. The signature drinks were named the Boston Tea Party and the Copley Cooler and local brews of Harpoon, Sam Adams and Cisco Whale’s Tale were offered. Pop-Rock band The Grift came in from Vermont to play for the reception kept everyone on the dance floor for the rest of the evening.

A big thank you to the team at the Omni Parker House and Congratulations to Colleen and Matt! We had such a fantastic time taking in the sights of Boston with you on your wedding day!

The Classic Boston Wedding of Colleen and Matt at the Old North Church and Omni Parker House – Person + Killian Photography – 251 Newbury Street – Boston, MA 02116 – [email protected] [email protected] – 617.236.1662

Jamie and Mitch decided upon a “destination wedding” in Boston Ma. The couple wanted to return to the city in which they met while attending college at Northeastern University. They wanted their wedding to reflect the strong sense of family they each value and for everyone to “love Boston as much as they do!”

The day started out with getting ready photographs at the Ames Hotel. Jamie refused to let the rain and fog ruin her day! She was happy, relaxed and excited to get married. She wore a beautiful Vera Wang wedding gown and amazing yellow Christian Louboutin patent leather heals. Her bridesmaids wore gray gowns paired with yellow and white flowers, which were a prefect accent to her color scheme and inspiration of steel gray, yellow and white. This was all based around the fact that Jamie “LOVES” the color yellow!

The couple chose the charming and historic Old North Church in Boston’s North End for their wedding ceremony. The church is the oldest standing in Boston and its bells are the oldest in any American church.

After Jamie let us take formal pictures of her in the rain (Thank you!), we then headed over to one of Boston’s most scenic wedding venues, The State Room. The reception was held in the Harborside Room and was a perfect way for all of their out of town guests to see panoramic views of the entire city!

The night was certainly filled with lots of love, laughs and dancing! One of our favorite moments was when Mitch surprised Jamie and sang the song “When Stars Go Blue”. What a beautiful moment and we were thrilled to be there to capture it all! Congratulations to such a fantastic couple. It was a pleasure working with you and we cannot thank you enough for trusting Person + Killian Photography to capture this day!
