For those of us here in Boston, we know how long the winters can be. After a typically cold, dark winter here in Boston — we are so excited to get the spring wedding season started with this gorgeous celebration at the Four Seasons Hotel Boston! A sophisticated and modern wedding with lots of white florals and pops of pink color, this was a refreshing way to officially kick off the spring wedding season.

After getting ready at the Four Seasons Hotel Boston, we took the bride and groom across the street to the Boston Public Garden for their first look and formal photos. The weather was a gorgeous 60+ degrees, perfect for lots of photos out in the park! Going back to the hotel, we took advantage of the gorgeous grand staircase for a few more formal photos before Sarah and Mike signed their Ketubah.

The wedding guests arrived and the bride and groom completed their traditional Jewish wedding ceremony, affirming their vows underneath a white floral chuppah in front of their friends and family. Cocktail hour in the Four Seasons Hotel Boston Aujourd’hui Room was followed by a reception in the Four Seasons Ballroom. Classic black and white colors were used throughout, with a mix of black and white seating and rentals, towering white floral arrangements, and an elegant touch of silver for a little bit of sparkle.

We can’t wait for the exciting spring wedding season ahead, special thanks to Sarah and Mike as well as Philip and his team at the Four Seasons and Jodi Raphael and her team at Jodi Raphael Events for getting us off to such an amazing start!

Four Seasons Hotel Boston Spring Wedding of Sarah + Mike with Jodi Raphael Events by Person + Killian Photography – 251 Newbury Street – Boston, MA 02116

Spring wedding season is officially upon us! This gorgeous Cape Club of Sharon wedding was the perfect reflection of this beautiful season — colorful spring bouquets, sunny skies, and the sprawling green grounds of the newly renovated Cape Club of Sharon (formally the Spring Valley Country Club).

The bride and groom had their first look just outside the club on the golf course, and were even joined by their dog Nike for a few formal photos. The traditional Jewish wedding ceremony took place inside the club, which was draped with soft pink fabric to create an elegant and intimate environment. Samantha and Bobby said their “I do”s underneath a gorgeous purple and white floral chuppah designed by the team at Marc Hall Design.

The drapes were removed for the reception, which opened up the beautiful newly renovated room into a bright and sunny spring space. The floor-to-ceiling windows made for the perfect backdrop, and allowed the guests the perfect view of the golf course. The color theme continued at the reception, with gorgeous purple floral centerpieces offset by metallic silver linens and modern white ballroom chairs.  Guests ate, drank, and danced the night away as the sun set over the greens.

We enjoyed every minute of this Cape Club of Sharon spring wedding, and we are grateful to Samantha and Bobby for letting us be a part of their special day. A special thanks to Samantha and Bobby’s A-team – Nicole Simeral of Simeral & Co., Suzanne B Lowell Lighting Design, Marc Hall Design and everyone at the Cape Club of Sharon!

Caren and Mike wanted their wedding day to not only be classic and romantic but also a fun and personal for them and their guests. The couple loves to sail so when they were looking for a venue, the Wharf Room at the Boston Harbor Hotel was a perfect choice. The colors for the day were shades of whites with blush pink and a splash of sage and mint green. The bridesmaids wore full length blush dresses that accented Caren’s beautiful Oscar De La Renta gown beautifully.

The first look took place right on the water behind the Wharf Room and we spent some time with the couple and their wedding party before heading inside the hotel for their Kutubah signing. The traditional Jewish wedding ceremony took place in the Wharf Room overlooking Boston Harbor under a custom white orchid filled chuppah. Following the ceremony, guests had the opportunity to view the Harbor from the top of the Rotunda on the 9th floor of the hotel while the ceremony space was transformed for the reception. Cascading white and blush floral arrangements filled the tables from Lotus Floral Events. Following dinner, the music by Soho kept the newlyweds and their guests celebrating on the dance floor all night.

From Caren and Mike: “Our wedding was certainly a day that will bring a smile to each of our faces as we remember it for the rest of our lives. When we look back on it, we are so grateful that it captured the romantic, softly nautical, fun, personal, and classically beautiful vibe we were going for. Our hearts are so full as we think of all of the love we were showered with from our very closest family and friends and we will certainly take that with us as we start our lives together as husband and wife!”

A big thank you to Michael Boivin and his fantastic team at the Boston Harbor Hotel and Congratulations again to Caren and Mike. Thank you both for letting us capture your beautiful day!

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!

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!

It was the first weekend of the season that really felt like summer, and we were so happy to celebrate the gorgeous weather with Elizabeth and Ben at their Harvard Club of Boston Wedding in Back Bay!

Elizabeth and her wedding party started the day getting ready in the beautiful rooms above the Harvard Club. The bride wore a classic white lace wedding gown, a great choice for the late-spring heat, and her bridesmaids matched perfectly in strapless champagne-colored gowns. The bouquets from Stapleton Floral added a light splash of pink, purple, and green to the ladies’ dresses.

The couple’s first look and photo shoot with their bridal party took place in the Harvard Club’s Massachusetts Room — the sweeping red curtains and black and white checkered floor were perfect for a classic and elegant backdrop. After the ceremony at the nearby Church of the Advent behind Boston’s historic Beacon Hill, we took advantage of the flawless spring weather to get some shots with the newly-married couple in the Boston Public Garden!

Guests returned to the Harvard Club of Boston for the evening reception, which took place downstairs in the Club’s Harvard Hall. The dark wood-paneled walls and towering ceilings provide a great neutral color palette to accentuate with decor. The red chairs, colorful red centerpieces, and red-trimmed flatware added the perfect touch of color to this beautiful space. The Hall’s central fireplace and ornate chandeliers, along with traditional candelabras on the surrounding walls, made this wedding reception warm, intimate, and classically elegant.

Thank you to Elizabeth + Ben, and the whole team at the Harvard Club of Boston for such a wonderful wedding day!

Lauren and Michael celebrated their beautiful spring wedding on Boston’s North Shore, at the aptly named Ocean View Inn in Gloucester. This beautiful space provides a sweeping view of the Massachusetts seaside, which we took advantage of throughout the day.

The overcast day didn’t stop us from getting some great seaside wedding pictures with Lauren, Michael and their wedding party after the ceremony. The Ocean View Inn’s panoramic windows provided a great ocean backdrop for the indoor ceremony, and the sun came out just long enough for us to take the newlyweds down to the shore for some formals before the reception! The evening party was classic and elegant — long white tables topped with soft white floral centerpieces, with pops of navy, silver, and bright red cranberry for color. Lauren and Michael’s closest friends and family helped them celebrate, which made for a really warm and intimate reception.

Congratulations Lauren and Michael on your beautiful wedding day, and thank you for letting us be a part of it!

Our spring wedding season continued with the beautiful country club wedding of Jessica and Greg. The Spring Valley Country Club in Sharon, MA was a perfect venue for this sunny and colorful wedding — we took advantage of the beautiful weather on the sprawling 200 acre golf course, and took in the spectacular view from the grand ballroom’s floor-to-ceiling windows during both the ceremony and reception.

We asked the couple to describe the look and feel of their wedding, including style, colors, and wedding inspirations; here’s what they had to say:

“We wanted our spring wedding to be elegant, but also fun and spiritual. Therefore we chose purple and white for our flowers. The purple chakra is the crown chakra — so we wanted our guests to see purple when they walked into the room. Our wedding will be a big fat Russian, Irish, and Italian wedding with lots of dancing and delicious food. Since we both grew up in the South Shore, the beautiful Spring Valley Country Club was the perfect place to have our wedding. The beautiful outdoor greenery, delicious food, and spacious grounds made it the ideal place!”

Thank you to Jessica and Greg for letting us be a part of your special day, and to the entire team at the Spring Valley Country Club for another spectacular event!

Spring is (finally) in the air! And what better way for Person + Killian Photography to celebrate than with a fun, colorful, springtime InterContinental Hotel Boston wedding!

Last weekends wedding was described by the bride and groom as having a “rebirth” theme. Not only does that tie in with the beautiful season and bright flowers of Spring, but it is also symbolic of the couple’s relationship! After being each other’s “first loves”, Stephanie and Richie went several years without seeing each other. They eventually reunited, rekindled their romance, and are now celebrating their love with this beautiful wedding ceremony.

The entire event was held at the InterContinental Hotel, with both the ceremony and reception taking place in the gorgeous Rose Kennedy Ballroom, and a cocktail hour in the foyer outside. The newlyweds were surrounded by brothers, sisters, parents, grandparents and friends as part of their large wedding party, which included adorable nieces and nephews for flower girls and ring bearers!

Every aspect of this wedding was stunning, from the bride in her Pronovias gown, to the colorful InterContinental food and drinks, to the bright flowers and soft sunset lighting. A late-evening Hora and lively music from NYC-based Starlight Orchestra made this reception a non-stop celebration, the perfect way to honor this couple’s fun and spirited relationship. The wedding symbolized everything the newlyweds hoped it would — “growth, family, balance, spirit, and joy”!

Congratulations to Stephanie and Richie, and thank you for inviting Person + Killian capture this special day with you!

Person + Killian Photography was thrilled to celebrate yet another gorgeous wedding at the Fairmont Copley Plaza in the heart of downtown Boston this weekend with newlyweds Michelle and Eric.

As soon as the couple saw the Fairmont Copley they knew it would be the perfect venue for their Boston wedding. It was especially important that their friends and family who had traveled from out-of-town be a part of the celebration; there’s no better place to see historic Boston than from the center of Copley Square!

The Grand Ballroom’s detailed and extravagant architecture provided the perfect backdrop for the beautiful floral arrangements by florist William Mizuta, and all of the decor for the evening included touches of Michelle’s favorite color — purple.

Following the beautiful Jewish ceremony on-site at the Fairmont, guests danced the night away with help of the band Night Shift , and indulged their sweet tooth at a custom candy bar. A celebratory Hora and night of dancing made this evening extra special for Michelle, Eric, and all of their loved ones.

Congratulations Michelle and Eric, and thank you for letting us be a part of your beautiful spring wedding in Boston!

Earlier this month, Person + Killian Photography had the pleasure of photographing a truly inspirational couple when they eloped in a Boston Public Garden wedding with three of their closest friends. Louisa and Jeroen met back in 2007 while doing relief work in Uganda. Louisa at the time was working for AVSI (a non-governmental organization with the Italian NGO) and Jeroen for the International Red Cross. Over the past few years they have traveled together doing what they love all over the world including spending time in Sudan and the Congo.

The bride and groom decided on the Boston Public Garden for their intimate ceremony as Louisa is here finishing her Masters in International Affairs. Recently, she took a trip to NYC to visit her bridesmaid on a 3-day, whirlwind shopping spree for her wedding dress.

The final look for the wedding day was a combination of her gorgeous dress from Reiss, fabulous blue pumps by Miu Miu and a necklace that she picked up in Africa. The matching wedding bands were custom made in Marblehead, MA. The finishing touch was her white orchid bouquet from Winston Flowers.

After a few formal photos, the newlyweds and their wedding party all grabbed their cell phones to share the exciting news that they just got married. Within a few minutes calls were made to family members all over the world (everywhere from Seattle, WA to Switzerland)!

From the Public Garden it was off to nearby Via Matta on Park Plazza for some hors’devours and a toast to the happy couple on a beautiful afternoon.

Louisa and Jeroen plan to continue their work together in Africa and Eastern Europe and will make Athens, Greece their home town. We wish them a world of happiness and are so touched that we had the opportunity to meet them, their wonderful friends and to capture their special day.

For newlyweds Jessica and Andrew, the planning started off perfectly when the then bride-to-be found her Kenneth Pool dress at last years local Brides Against Breast Cancer event. From there, all of the perfect details for their spring wedding at the Royal Sonesta, Cambridge fell right into place with the guidance of Janie Haas Event Consulting and the Royal Sonesta team.

Jess’s vision and inspiration were a combination of a Frank Sinatra classic 1950’s feel and pink blush cherry blossom branches with gun-metal gray accents that were incorporated throughout the wedding day.

The the initial first look took place on one of the outdoor patios overlooking the Charles River and Boston Skyline followed by some wedding party and family photos in several locations throughout the hotel.

After all of the formal photos, it was off to sign the Ketubah prior to the ballroom ceremony that took the guests breath away when they saw the gorgeous chuppah created with real cherry blossom branches and bark by the team at Winston Flowers with lighting by Suzanne B. Lowell Lighting Design.

After cocktail hour, the celebration continued for 250 guests as they made their way back into the ballroom for the reception. Jess and Andrew alongside their friends and family celebrated until the early hours of the morning with the continuous entertainment of Beantown.

Congratulations Jessica and Andrew and thank you for choosing Person + Killian Photography to capture your beautiful wedding day!
