We always love reconnecting with families that we’ve worked with in the past — this is the second wedding we have celebrated with the bride’s family, after photographing her sister’s wedding last Fall. For Joanna and Andres’ Ritz-Carlton Boston wedding, the bride described their vision as “elegant, classic, and romantic”. The day was exactly that, with beautiful touches of navy blue, burgundy, and gold throughout.

The entire day’s events took place at the Ritz-Carlton Boston, starting with the couple getting ready in the suites of the hotel overlooking Back Bay and the Boston Common. Joanna and Andres met in the Ritz-Carlton Boston Studio for their first look and formal photos with their wedding party, before heading to Our Lady of Perpetual Help for the evening ceremony. Before traveling back to the Ritz-Carlton Boston for the evening celebration, we made a stop with the newlyweds outside the Paramount Theater for some beautiful nighttime photos with their white Rolls Royce in front of the city lights. A quick trip around the corner and we were back at the Ritz-Carlton Boston, ready to get the party started!

The reception was held in the Ritz-Carlton Ballroom, and featured classic white centerpieces, navy blue details, and elegant pops of gold to give the room a little sparkle. Joanna and Andres danced the night away surrounded by friends and family, and we were thrilled to be there to celebrate with them all.

Special thanks to the couple for including us in your wedding day, to both families for being so welcoming, and to the wonderful team at the Ritz-Carlton Boston for a fantastic event!

Dress for Success Boston is a wonderful organization that is committed to empowering women to break the cycle of poverty and provide them with better, more independent futures. This month at the Ritz-Carlton Boston, Dress for Success held a Style + Soul fashion show fundraiser, and we were thrilled to be there to support a great cause and capture the event. The event was emceed by philanthropist and fashionista Erica Corsano, and featured a catwalk fashion show with 11 local celebrity models.

The evening began with a red carpet entrance, followed by the presentations and Style + Soul fashion show. The Ritz-Carlton Boston was transformed with a white rose-lined catwalk, crystal and white chiavaris, and white lounge furniture for guests to enjoy while watching the show. Celebrity models included local talent from Mix 104.1, WROR 105.7, publications like Boston Magazine and the Improper Bostonian, Miss Massachusetts USA Allissa Latham and producer and host of WCVB’s Chronicle Shayna Seymour (also a former P+K bride!). A cocktail reception followed the fashion show, where guests were given Bloomingdales “little brown bags” to fill with take away gifts donated by both Bloomingdales and Whole Foods.

We were so honored to be included in this beautiful event for a good cause, special thanks to designer and producer Julie Freed and The Conception Group for including us, to the Ritz-Carlton Boston for hosting, and a big congratulations to Dress for Success Boston for a successful evening all around!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year at the Ritz-Carlton Boston! Its time again for one of our favorite holiday traditions, the annual Ritz-Carlton holiday soiree right in the heart of downtown Boston. We’ve photographed this event for many years now, and have seen so many of their fun and inventive party themes — Parisian Soiree, Winter Wonderland, and Venetian Masquerade just to name a few. This year the Ritz-Carlton celebrated their 90th anniversary, and to honor the hotel’s initial opening back in 1927 the theme this year was the Roaring 20’s.

For this year’s soiree, the hotel was transformed into a 1920’s speakeasy — complete with red velvet curtains, black and white decor, opulent gold and silver details, and lots of tassels. An old black-and-white video of the city streets was projected right at the entrance, so guests could really feel like they were walking back in time into the roaring 20’s.

During the night’s event, Music Management surprised everyone with a performance of can-can dancers and a 4-piece jazz quartet. Event partners Boston Ballet and LTI Transportation continued their annual tradition of raffling off fabulous travel getaways to a few lucky guests, and everyone brought an unwrapped gift to share for a child in need.

We always love being a part of this holiday tradition at the Ritz-Carlton Boston. Reconnecting with industry friends, helping those in need, and sharing in the holiday cheer are what make this season great!

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!

Person + Killian Photography had the pleasure of photographing an amazing Boston Bat Mitzvah that was made possible by the fabulous team at Rafanelli Events. The morning started out at the beautiful Temple Ohabei Shalom in Brookline. The events of the day continued at The Ritz-Carlton Boston where the 2nd floor was transformed into one of Zoe and her family’s favorite vacation spots in Cannes, France. The guests experienced an array of surprises throughout the evening with everything from VIP style cabanas, a cotton candy dessert station and video montage all leading up to the highlight of the night.  Zoe and her guests were treated to a performance by “Status Quo” from MTV’s “Randy Jackson Presents America’s Best Dance Crew“. It was such a pleasure to work once again with so many of our friends in the business from video by AfterImage Productions, stunning table arrangements by Spruce Floral and the amazing decor from ceiling to floor from Be Our Guest, PBD Events and Rentals Unlimited. A special thank you to Erin Palank, Julie Wolman and the rest of the crew at Rafanelli Events as well as Laura Fox and the team at The Ritz-Carlton, Boston for making this such a wonderful event to have been a part of. P+K are looking forward to capturing future Bat and Bar Mitzvahs with wonderful warm and loving families like Zoe’s. Mazal tov and Happy 13th to Zoe!
