There are so many reasons we love working at the Ritz — the location right in the heart of Downtown Boston, the array of beautiful spaces to take wedding photos, and the classic and elegant ballroom are only a few of them! We were thrilled when Emily + Lou hired us to photograph their summer wedding at the Ritz Carlton Boston Common, and the day turned out to be perfect.

The bride and groom both started their morning getting ready at the Ritz — Emily with her bridal party and Lou with his groomsmen. When the soon-to-be newlyweds were ready, we took them downstairs to the Ballroom Foyer for their first look. The large windows gave us fantastic sunlight and the fabric textured white walls made for the perfect backdrop for this wonderful moment with the bride and groom. Next, we headed to the nearby Boston Public Garden with Emily, Lou, and their wedding party for some outdoor formal photos on this gorgeous summer afternoon!

When we returned to the Ritz Carlton Boston Common it was time for the Ketubah signing and traditional Jewish wedding ceremony. Emily + Lou became husband and wife underneath a beautiful white Chuppah, draped in fabric and featuring arrangements of classic white orchids. The floor-to-ceiling windows were also hung with soft white drapes that filled the room with beautiful sunshine as the bride and groom said I Do! The party moved into the  beautiful Studio room for cocktails, while the finishing touches were made to the ballroom inside.

The reception was classic and elegant, featuring a gorgeous mix of tall and short floral centerpieces and fun pops of coral throughout the decor. Emily told us that coral is one of her favorite colors, and it was also the color she was wearing when she met her husband-to-be! Even the up lighting around the ballroom featured a warm coral light, giving the entire room an intimate and summery glow. Following the first dance and heartfelt toasts from friends and family, the dance floor was open and the party really kicked off. The groom was even surprised by a special rendition of his favorite song, Happy by Pharrell — he was given a classic Pharrell hat to wear while he danced! At the end of the night guests took home delicious  chocolate chip cookies, brought in that morning especially for the wedding from one of Emily + Lou’s favorite bakeries in Philadelphia.

We could not have asked for a more gorgeous wedding day for this wonderful couple — special thanks to the entire team at the Ritz Carlton Boston Common for another spectacular event, and to Emily + Lou for letting us share this special day with you! Mazel Tov!

Spring is finally in the air, and Jennifer and Kevin had the perfect spring weather for their elegant Ritz-Carlton Boston Common wedding. We started the day in the Ritz-Carlton bridal suite with Jennifer and her bridal party. Jenn met Kevin just outside the ballroom where the spring sunlight was perfect at this time of day and came pouring in through the windows for their first look making for some stunning images. Following the first look and a few photos of the wedding party, we headed across the street to the Boston Common for some outdoor formal portraits. All the snow had melted and the sun was shining, it was a perfect day to be outside in Boston!

The wedding ceremony took place in the Ritz-Carlton Boston Common Ballroom. Arrangements of purple, white, and yellow flowers adorned each side of the altar in silver-studded pillars, and the late afternoon sunlight from the ballroom window gave the room a beautiful romantic glow as Jenn and Kevin said their “I do”s.

While guests enjoyed cocktails in the Ritz Studio Room & Foyer, the ballroom was transformed into an elegant spring reception. Tables were topped with silver linens and a mix of high and low spring floral arrangements in bright colors of yellow, green, white, and purple. A wash of beautiful purple uplighting covered the walls and ceiling, giving the entire room a great pop of color while each of the centerpieces was lit with individual pinspots to really make them stand out. Jenn is a big fan of theater so we were thrilled when the couple asked us to sneak outside for a few minutes during dinner to the Paramount Theater for a few city night images of them.

This was a wonderfully elegant spring wedding, and we were so happy to be able to share it with such a great couple. Special thanks to the entire team at the Ritz, as well as the bride’s uncle Eric who coordinated this beautiful wedding! Congratulations Jennifer + Kevin!

Person + Killian Photography kicked off the 2012 wedding season in style at the Ritz-Carlton, Boston Common for Caroline and David’s winter wedding.

Caroline and David knew they wanted to have their wedding in downtown Boston because they both love living there! They wanted the feeling of their day to be sophisticated and chic and went with black + white for their color scheme with accents of silver and purple.

After the bride and her bridesmaids got ready in one of the hotel’s beautiful suites overlooking the Boston Common, it was time for the first look. It was great capturing the excitement for the couple. Prior to the ceremony we spent some time with the bride and groom taking photos throughout the hotel and with their wedding party.

The ceremony took place at the Lindsey Chapel on nearby Newbury Street. Caroline and David both love music so they personalized their ceremony with a gospel choir and sting trio (as a surprise for their guests).

Following photos with the newlyweds and their wedding party outside the Boston Public Library and the Commonwealth Avenue Mall it was back to the Ritz where the celebration began. With the music of Soho, Caroline, David and their guests danced the night away.

Congratulations Caroline and David and thank you both for having us there to capture such a beautiful day!

Throughout this summer Person + Killian Photography has had the pleasure of working with the talented ladies at Tangorra Wedding Planning on several occasions. We have already shared the beautiful weddings of newlyweds Tiff & Joe as well as Mia & Torin. Over the last couple of weeks we were thrilled to yet again work with Linnea, Francie and Megan with two more amazing couples.

First was the wedding of Melissa & Dennis at the Boston Harbor Hotel. The day started with getting ready at Melissa’s home where we got our first glimpse of her spectacular Monique Lhuillier gown. We loved the reaction of her bridesmaids when they first saw the dress!

After the ceremony at St. Brigid Church in Lexington, it was off to the Boston Harbor Hotel for formal photos with the newlyweds and their wedding party followed by their reception in the Wharf Room.

The reception look that Melissa had dreamed of was complete with linens from Table Toppers of Newton and lush soft pink and white flowers by Spruce Floral.

Next we had the wedding of Andrea & Brian at the luxurious Ritz-Carlton, Boston Common. Andrea got ready in one of the suites of the Ritz overlooking Beacon Hill and Brian joined her there for their emotional first look.

After a few photos we headed across the Street to the Common for a few formal images. Both Brian and Andrea were excited to have a shot with the landmark Loews Theatre signs in the background.

One of our favorite moments of the day was when a MA state trooper stopped traffic on Tremont Street for the couple to head back to the hotel. Moments later we saw that Bon Jovi was exiting the hotel to head to his Boston gig. Thanks for providing P+K w/ that photo op!

The ceremony took place in Boston’s North End at the historical Old North Church and as always it provided a perfect backdrop for ceremony images.

The reception took place in the ballroom of the Ritz and all came together beautifully with the collaboration of flowers from Tangerine Creations, lighting by Boston Uplights and the staff of both the Ritz and Tangorra Wedding Planning.

To kick off the reception, the couple honored Brian’s African American heritage by having a Broom Jumping Ceremony in which the bride and groom signify their entrance into a new life and their creation of a new family by symbolically “sweeping away” their former single lives and enter upon a new adventure as wife and husband.

Congratulations to both couples and thank you for being so wonderful to work with!
