Tags archives: Summer Boston Wedding

We love when our couples have a meaningful connection to the city of Boston, and we can see that in the details of this Summer wedding. Olivia and Brian have a long history here in Boston, and made sure to include special people and places throughout their celebration. They told us it was important for them to have a “romantic, summer wedding in the city where they fell in love”.

Both the bride and groom attended Boston College, and have called Boston their home ever since graduation. They chose Trinity Chapel to hold their wedding ceremony because they used to sing in concerts there together as members of the BC University Chorale. The beautiful Boston Harbor inspired their color scheme of soft purples and blues, and lead to their perfect venue choice of the Boston Harbor Hotel.

Olivia and Brian also included patriotic touches to their wedding, starting with the large American flag in the Boston Harbor Hotel archway. For their ceremonial cake cutting, Brian’s grandmother presented her late husband’s naval sword to Olivia’s brother — LTJG Emmett Whalen. The sword, belonging to Captain William E. Wynne, CEC, USNA, was the same one his grandparent’s used at their own wedding! Governor Baker and Lt. Governor Polito were guests as the wedding as Brian was their campaign manager.

The celebration of a wedding is always bigger than just the couple. Olivia and Brian really found a connection to their family, to their history, and to the city they love in this gorgeous Summer wedding in Boston. Special thanks to the bride and groom and to Michael Boivin at the Boston Harbor Hotel for another fabulous celebration!

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!

Person + Killian love photographing weddings at our Back Bay neighboring hotel – the Mandarin Oriental Boston. Recently, we had the pleasure of capturing the wedding day of Alyx and Drew there.

The bride and groom started the day early, getting dressed and ready in the rooms of the hotel. A pre-wedding gift of diamond earrings arrived at the bridal suite from Drew before Alyx had even gotten her dress on! After everyone was dressed and ready to go, the couple took advantage of the summer weather and had their first look outside in the Mandarin’s outdoor Sitting Grove. We took some great shots of the couple alone, before they were joined by their wedding party for some group formals. Following the group photos, we moved inside with the couple for photographs of the Mandarin’s beautiful indoor spaces before the ceremony.

The interfaith ceremony took place in the Ballroom, with both a Reverend and a Rabbi officiating. After the “I do”s, the party kicked off in the Oriental Gallery for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. The look and feel of the ballroom reception was both classic and modern — gold place settings on white linens, with alternating tall and short white floral centerpieces on all the tables. The crowd was energetic, fun, and definitely ready to celebrate this great couple!

Congratulations Alyx and Drew, and thanks for being so fun to work with on your wedding day!
