Even a drizzly Boston day couldn’t dampen the smiles of this happy couple! Carlisle and Max celebrated their State Room Boston wedding with a lot of laughter, a lot of fun, and just a few raindrops along the way.

The couple and wedding party started the day at the Ames Hotel Boston to get ready. It was a short walk across the street to the State Room Boston for the entire day’s celebration. The couple’s dream for their wedding day was simple and classic. Neutral colors, fresh greenery, and small pops of pink for a little bit of fun! The vibe was timeless.

The couple said their “I do’s” in the State Room Boston’s Great Room, overlooking the downtown and the Boston Harbor. Classic black and white colors prevailed, with the flower girls in an adorable pop of pink. After enjoying cocktails on the mezzanine above, guests came back down to the Great Room for dinner, dancing, and celebration of the newlyweds. The city outside the window lit up as the sun began to set, while guests headed to the dance floor! The energy of the night was full of smiles, love, laughter, and joy. Everyone (ourselves included) was happy to be there with this wonderful couple!

Thank you to the Longwood Events team for always being wonderful to work with and a big congratulations to Carlisle and Max!

You don’t have to pick just one style when it comes to planning your wedding day. More and more often, couples are mixing different themes and looks to make their wedding celebration perfectly unique to their vision. You might think that “traditional” and “modern” wouldn’t work together, but we love seeing how brides and grooms are taking their favorite elements from different styles and blending them together. This is exactly how bride Erika described her vision for her wedding day — “a blend of modern with traditional elements”.

Erika and her groom Jimmy started their wedding day at The Langham Boston. The ladies got prepped and pampered in bright and colorful floral robes before changing into their dresses — a strapless sweetheart gown for Erika and champagne bridesmaid dresses for her bridal party. It was a quick walk across the street to Post Office Square where Erika and Jimmy met for their first look. We took some formal photos of the entire wedding party and some solo shots with just the bride and groom at Post Office Square before hopping in a trolley and driving to the Seaport area for photos overlooking the Boston Harbor and city skyline. Then it was back onto the trolley and off to the State Room for the wedding to begin.

For a wedding mixing both traditional and modern elements, the State Room Boston was the perfect fit. Erika and Jimmy’s wedding ceremony was held in the Great Room, which featured classic white draping, towering floral arrangements on mirror pedestals, and of course the unbeatable view of the city below. Following the ceremony, guests moved upstairs to the mezzanine for cocktails while the Great Room was transformed for dinner and dancing. The couple chose a soft color palette of blushes, gold, and ivory — champagne linens, gold and white chiavaris and gold-accented charger plates and flatware added a touch of traditional elegance to the decor. Classic white floral arrangements were mixed with modern vases filled with submerged flowers — a perfect blend of traditional and contemporary styles. A custom set of “E & J” lights lit  up the dance floor, with a modern lounge set nearby for guests to relax.

Special thanks to the entire team at the State Room Boston and to Erika and Jimmy for letting us be a part of their gorgeous spring wedding — we had a blast!

Recently, we had the pleasure of photographing the State Room Boston summer wedding of Stephanie and David.  From the bride – “We are Boston. It is where we met (Scholar’s) and where we live (Southie). We wanted a personal wedding that was true to us and asked our close friend to marry us.” With sweeping views of the city, the State Room was the perfect location to showcase their beloved home town.

After getting ready at the nearby Langham Hotel, we walked across the street to picturesque Post Office Square. Waiting for the bride for their first look alongside Dave was their beloved dog Manny (who made an appearance at their engagement sessions earlier this year). Steph also wanted to incorporate her love for the color pink and went with a soft pink and grey color pallet for the day. As a surprise, the parents of the bride had the pink taxi from the Langham to drive the bride over to State Street.

The ceremony and reception took place in the Great Room where guests watched the sunset over the Boston Harbor as they enjoyed dinner and heartfelt toasts. Joey Scott and the Connection had the room dancing and celebrating for the rest of the evening. Congratulations Steph and Dave and thank you for being such a pleasure to work with on your beautiful day! Also a big thank you to the always amazing team at State Room Boston.

Oscar-winning actor Forest Whitaker joined Hillary Clinton in Boston last week as the Democratic presidential hopeful returned to the city for a fundraiser. Person + Killian Photography was thrilled to be there to document this evening. The event, titled “Evening with Hillary and Forest Whitaker, Academy Award Winning Actor and Social Activist,” was held at one of our favorite venues, The State Room. Whitaker is a women’s rights and social justice advocate known for his Academy Award-winning turn in The Last King of Scotland, among many other roles. The former first lady, senator and secretary of state was greeted at The State Room with a warm welcome. The fundraiser was filled with many prominent figures such as Michael Capuano, Ed Markey and Mayor Walsh! Not to mention hundreds of Clinton supporters. Congratulations to Hillary Clinton and The State Room Boston on such a successful evening. A big thank you to the entire Longwood events staff for having us there to be a part of this evening with them.

The State Room is an incredibly photogenic venue, and we were thrilled to return there to photograph the downtown Boston wedding of Stacey and Evan. These newlyweds love Boston, and wanted a wedding that encapsulated all the beautiful and unique experiences the city has to offer. From getting ready at the stately Ames Boston Hotel to first look and formal photographs in Post Office Square, Stacey and Evan’s wedding really embodied the flavor of the city (literally, with favors from the famously creative South End Blackbird Doughnuts, and cupcakes from Wicked Good Cupcakes!). The couple had a beautiful traditional Jewish ceremony, with a floral chuppah and panoramic views of the historic Boston waterfront.

Stacey described it best: “We  met and fell in love in Boston and we wanted our wedding to reflect our love for each other and the city! We tried to incorporate that into all aspects of our wedding – from the clock tower on the table numbers, to the local doughnut favors (our favorite to take a trip to on the weekend mornings!). We really wanted our wedding to be fun and casual to balance out the elegant space. We added touches that felt very “us” – such as incorporating our sports rivalries into the kipot for the ceremony and passing out popcorn right as guests arrived (we are food fanatics and wanted everyone to start eating from the start!). The view from the State Room is unparalleled and we wanted to make that the focus of the space, so we kept the lighting simple and natural to bring the city lights in. Our colors of blush and silver highlighted the space, without overpowering it.”

Congratulations Stacey and Evan! Thank you for choosing Person + Killian to be a part of your celebration!

We always love seeing what’s new and trendy each wedding season. As we kick off this new year of Boston weddings in 2014, we were happy to pay a visit to the State Room Boston where Rentals Unlimited was showcasing some of their newest items.

Rentals Unlimited put together three wedding tables for us to photograph in the State Room Boston’s stunning Great Room, 33 stories above downtown Boston. Each of the designs featured clean colors of black, white and silver and ranged from chic and modern to classic and elegant. The first table was a long, rectangular mirror-top with clear mirage chairs. A mix of black goblets and classic crystal was paired with white chargers, black and shell napkins, all accented with black candle pillers.

The second table design was a traditional round with shimmering white linen. A mix of classic crystal and opaque white goblets were paired with silver-lined chargers for a modern twist, and the black vase and white orchid centerpiece added a wonderful pop of contrast. The final combination featured a textured silver and white linen and a beautiful shimmery silver charger plate. The clean, simple colors all worked so wonderfully together and each design was unique, modern, and elegant.

Below are a few images from the day that we wanted to share for some #WeddingWednesday inspiration!

Our friends at Longwood Events are doing good this Spring! Even while they are busy creating and hosting stunning weddings and galas at any one of their five high-end Boston and Rhode Island venues, Longwood Events has still managed to create a brand new non-profit branch of their organization. We were happy to be invited to join as Longwood Events launches Longwood Giving this year!

The goal of Longwood Giving is to help struggling non-profits pump up their fundraising efforts through well-executed events, and eventually allow them to bring in more money for great causes. And who better to help out in such a valiant effort than Longwood Events?

Longwood Giving was launched earlier this month with their “Friends with Benefits” event, held at Longwood’s own State Room Boston, and Person + Killian Photography was delighted to be asked to be the exclusive photographers for the evening!

Longwood Giving partnered with the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association (MLBPAA) for this VIP event, whose highlights included culinary masters from both Boston and Nantucket, actual MLB Players Alumni, and a performance by up-and-coming artist (and recent Grammy winner!) Shea Rose.

Congratulations to Longwood Events for a very successful night, and thank you for letting Person + Killian Photography be a part of it!

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!
