Even though our calendars may say it is Fall, this Omni Parker House wedding of Rana and Kevin managed to soak up the very last bits of summer before we move into a new season. This wedding celebration was the perfect reflection of the bride and groom, with traditions from both sides of their new family and an elegant touch of classic Boston.

Both Rana and Kevin got ready for their day inside the Omni Parker House — Rana with her bridesmaids and Kevin with his groomsmen. The couple chose not to see each other before the wedding ceremony so they were skirted away separately from the Omni Parker House to St. Cecilia’s Parish in Back Bay. The couple said their “I do”s in a Catholic wedding ceremony in front of friends and family.

Following the ceremony, we brought Rana, Kevin, and their wedding party out to the Boston Public Garden for their formal photographs. They were truly lucky to have caught the last little bit of summer in the city, with even a few of the trees already showing signs of an orange and yellow Fall. We could not have asked for a more perfect day — bright sunshine, green grass, and the beautiful pond in the middle gave us lots of opportunities for photos with the bride and groom.

When we returned to the Omni Parker House, Rana and Kevin celebrated a second ceremony — this one a traditional Persian wedding ceremony to honor Rana’s heritage. All of the details of the ceremony were handmade by Rana’s mother, she had been working on them for the past year in preparation for the big day. The ceremony included prayers for the bride and groom, gifts, and a joyous celebration for all the guests in attendance. From there we moved into the ballroom, for dinner and dancing with the happy couple. The gold details of the chairs, linens, charger plates, and gold chandeliers made a perfectly beautiful and elegant reception for this wonderful bride and groom.

Thank you to Rana and Kevin for letting us be a part of this day with you, and to Amanda and her team at the Omni Parker House!

With the city near and dear to their hearts the simply stunning Katie and Barry wanted their fall wedding to have a classic Bostonian feel. Rich in luxury and tradition the Boston Omni Parker House was the perfect setting for their elegant affair.

Katie and Barry were surrounded by their fun loving family and friends for a sweet ceremony inside the breathtaking beauty of St. Mary – St. Catherine of Siena Parish in Charlestown.

We were enchanted by a delicate palate of ivory, white, and gold along with swoon-worthy panoramic city views from the fabulous Omni Parker House Hotel. Later, guests were on their feet for the wonderful rhythms of Sweet Tooth & the Sugarbabies and treated to charming favors from the Boston Olive Oil Company.

Thank you to all of the fabulous vendors that made this special day come to life! A very special thanks to Katie and Barry for choosing Person + Killian to document your wedding. We wish you all the happiness in the world!

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!

Author Susan Wilson recently set out to compile a complete history of the historic Omni Parker House Boston, and just last week she celebrated the official launch of the finished book. We were so honored to be the featured photographers for the completed book, titled “Heaven, By Hotel Standards: The History of the Omni Parker House”. The book features each of the aspects of the Omni Parker House’s extensive history — from food to architecture to prominent figures — as well as all of the present-day activity that goes on at this beautiful hotel! We not only got interviewed for the book’s special Weddings chapter, the pages also featured some of our favorite past weddings at the Omni Parker House to showcase all of the beautiful spaces we love to photograph. Check out an excerpt from the book below:

We were also honored to photograph the book launch event itself, which took place at the Omni Parker House Boston and featured a meet-and-greet with the author, delicious food and drink stations from the Omni Parker House kitchen, and fabulous music from the Winiker Swing Orchestra — who were the featured “house band” of the Omni Parker’s pub The Last Hurrah for almost 30 years! The show-stopper at this event was the Omni Parker House replica cake made out of the famous Boston Creme Pie, a dessert which was actually invented right here at the Omni Parker House Boston.

We could not be happier to have been honored in this wonderful book, and to be remembered as a part of this hotel’s unbelievable history. Special thank you to everyone at the Omni Parker House Boston, and to Susan Wilson for including us in your work.

Omni Parker House Boston : The elegant and legendary Omni Parker House hosted its 11th Annual “Brides of Distinction” Bridal Brunch & Fashion Show earlier this month. The event provided brides the opportunity to plan their perfect wedding by meeting with top local vendors and wedding experts.

The fashion show, hosted by Flair – brides & maids of Boston, highlighted the newest in wedding gown and bridesmaids dress fashions. Guests were greeted with a mimosa and enjoyed brunch, cake and a fashion show while seated at beautifully decorated tables featuring the latest flower and linen designs. Jenny Johnson from “TV Diner” on New England Cable News was the emcee for the event.

The Omni Parker House included several dedicated Boston companies to showcase their offerings, including Person + Killian Photography. We captured the beautiful floral arrangements by Madison Floral, and linens by Rentals Unlimited.  Each model had their hair and makeup done by the talented team from Wedding Tresses.

We love every opportunity to photography at Boston’s Omni Parker House and recently had the pleasure of being there again for Christina and Ben’s wedding day! Prior to the ceremony Christina and her bridesmaids got ready in the beautiful Parker Suite of the hotel. From there we headed downstairs to the Press Room where the couple exchanged vows and took some time for a few photos.

With the Omni Parker House being located across the street from the picturesque Old City Hall and the unbelievably warm weather, the newlyweds were definitely up for some outdoor photos.  Before joining their guests at cocktail hour we stopped to capture a few classic images in the lobby of the hotel.

The reception took place in the rooftop ballroom. Christina, Ben and their guests had a blast dancing to the entertainment of DJ Mike Amado. Congratulations to Christina + Ben and thank you both for being so great to work with and trusting us to capture such a special day in your lives!

One of our favorite things about photographing Boston weddings is having the chance to work alongside so many wonderful colleagues.  For Jessica and Rob’s State Room Boston wedding, this was no exception.

The day started at the Omni Parker House where Jessica and her bridesmaids got ready followed by the couple’s first look. Capturing the day on video along side us were the talented ladies of AfterImage Productions. The elegant fall look that the bride wanted came together when the bouquets were hand delivered by the talented Marc Hall of Winston Flowers.

After some formal photographs in the Boston Public Garden, it was off to the State Room for the ceremony and reception. Both the Harborside Room and the Great Room were elegantly decorated with the perfect fall décor that wowed the guests as they arrived.

Below are just a handful of our favorite images from the day. Congratulations Jessica and Rob and thank you for including Person + Killian Photography as part of your wedding day dream team!
