Maggie and Mike dreamed of a classic winter wedding in Boston, and their beautiful and elegant wedding at the Taj Boston and Hampshire House was exactly what they had hoped for! This winter wedding was before Boston saw its first big snowfall, but the couple still took advantage of all the winter details around the city. The couple began the day at the Taj Boston — Mike with his groomsmen, and Maggie with her bridesmaids (as well as the couple’s adorable dog Bonnie). Maggie accented her wedding gown with a gorgeous fur wrap, perfect for outdoor photos in the winter.

The couple met in the Boston Public Garden, directly across the street from the Taj Boston, for their first look and formal photos in the park. Then it was off to St. Cecilia’s Parish just a few blocks away for the wedding ceremony. Maggie and Mike became husband and wife in a full Catholic mass ceremony, surrounded by friends, family, and loved ones. Evening had fallen in the city after the ceremony was finished, and we took the newlyweds out to Commonwealth Avenue on our way back to the reception for a few more photos. Around this time of year Comm Ave is lined with sparkling holiday lights, which made the perfect backdrop for some classic winter wedding photos.

The reception was held at the Hampshire House in Beacon Hill, with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres starting on the Hampshire House’s third floor. We took advantage of the House’s stunning spiral staircase for some photos with the newlywed’s, then the party moved downstairs to the second floor for dinner. The couple chose classic white with a few pops of blue for their winter wedding decor — the neutral palette matched perfectly with the Hampshire House’s already rich and historical design. Silver vases held gorgeous white floral arrangements, and soft candlelight glowed throughout the room. Following dinner, guests moved up to the third floor for dessert and then back down to the second floor for dancing. Maggie, Mike, and all of their guests danced the night away at this beautiful winter wedding celebration — exactly how they had imagined it.

Thank you to Maggie and Mike for including us in your wonderful wedding, and to the Hampshire House for sending this fantastic couple our way!

When asked to describe their vision for their wedding day, Brianna and Edwin said: “We wanted the night to feel glamorous and modern, but also timeless”. Their choice of the Taj Boston Rooftop was the perfect location for this intimate event — and they took full advantage of everything the space has to offer!

The entire day’s events took place at the Taj Boston, with both bride and groom getting ready inside the hotel before heading outside for formal photos. The Boston Public Garden is situated right across the street from the Taj, so it was a quick walk to get out into the park. We started with just Brianna and Edwin alone, taking advantage of the beautiful greenery and fall trees just starting to turn orange. We were soon joined by the wedding party, who kept with the elegant monochromatic theme of the evening in simple black dresses and tuxes with white bouquets for the ladies.

We headed back to the hotel for the late afternoon ceremony, which took place up on Taj Boston Rooftop. The intimate gathering of friends and family watched Brianna and Edwin become husband and wife, overlooking the beautiful city 17 stories below. As the sun set over the skyline, the Taj Boston Rooftop was transformed for the evening reception.

Brianna and Edwin wanted to keep with the monochromatic color palette of the rooftop (with its black and white checkerboard floor), and accent with colors of gold and champagne for a modern and elegant touch. Guests were seated at two long banquet tables with white linens, black chiavari chairs, and black vases holding gorgeous white bouquets. Even the cake was an elegant black and white, topped with an image of the Boston skyline that was also used on their wedding invitations. They even made sure to include homages to Brianna’s infamous love of champagne and roses, with white roses in all of the floral arrangements and small bottles of champagne given out as a favor at the end of the night.

This Taj Boston wedding was perfectly elegant, modern, and romantic. Brianna and Edwin really allowed their celebration to be a reflection of their love and their unique relationship, and we were so happy to be there to share it with them!

It’s late September in Boston, and Sarah & Sam are celebrating their beautiful Taj Boston wedding weekend in the heart of the city. Everything from the preparation to the ceremony to the formal photos to the evening reception took place right in Downtown Boston, and gave the bride and groom as well as their guests some of the best of what this city has to offer!

Sarah and Sam both started their morning in the Taj Boston, getting ready for the big day with their wedding party. After everyone was dressed and ready, the bridal suite was cleared out so the bride and groom could have their first look moment together. We then took a quick walk across the street to the Boston Public Garden for some formal photos with Sarah and Sam, before hopping in an Uber to get to the church just a few blocks away.

The afternoon wedding ceremony took place at the Old South Church in Boston’s Copley Square. After the “I do”s, we headed back to the Taj Boston with the newlyweds and their wedding party for some formal photos in the hotel. While guests waited for the evening reception to begin, Sarah and Sam arranged a trolley tour to show them all the sights of the city!

Both the cocktail hour and the reception were held on the beautiful Taj Rooftop. The couple chose simple, neutral colors for their decor paired with classic green and white floral centerpieces on each table. The Taj Rooftop ceiling was decorated with natural greenery and hanging crystal orbs right over the dance floor, for a beautiful pop of color. Guests ate, drank, and danced the night away as they celebrated this wonderful couple.

Thank you Sarah and Sam for including us in your Taj Boston wedding day, and a special thanks to Marrero Events and the whole team at the Taj for another spectacular event!

We love when couples are able to bring their own unique history, story, and traditions into the celebration of their wedding day, and this beautiful Taj Boston spring wedding was the perfect reflection of brides Channah and Shikha.

This two-day celebration was a unique mix between the couple’s heritage — Channah’s Jewish traditions and Shikha’s Hindu traditions made for a truly one-of-a-kind wedding weekend. The events began on Friday with a Mehndi celebration and rehearsal dinner at the Park Plaza with toasts, dinner, and traditional Indian dancing from Shikha’s friends. Both brides wore gorgeous green saris, which matched perfectly with the spring trees in the Public Garden where we took the couple for photos before the party.

Saturday’s wedding day was held at the Taj Boston Rooftop, and began with the couple’s first look in the Boston Public Garden surrounded by friends and family. Channah wore a beautiful  white wedding gown while Shikha wore a traditional ornate red and gold sari.

The day’s events featured both Hindu and Jewish traditions, with a ketubah signing, a chuppa, and both Jewish and Hindu prayers during the wedding ceremony on the Rooftop. Guests enjoyed cocktails, dinner, and traditional Indian and Jewish dancing as they celebrated this wonderful couple on their very special wedding day!

From the couple: We are so glad to celebrate with our family and friends! We hope for a wedding day full of spring colors, blushes, ivories, sage greens – that celebrates both of our cultures and religions. We have been together for 6 years and are overjoyed to be making it official!

Congratulations to this beautiful couple, and thank you for letting us be a part of your extraordinary Taj Boston Spring wedding.

Taj Boston Spring Wedding – Boston Wedding Photographers – Photographed by Person + Killian Photography – 251 Newbury Street – Boston, MA 02116 – 617.236.1662

It’s no secret that we love the city of Boston, and of our many favorite places to capture a wedding, the Taj Boston offers a blend of grand luxury and timeless style. It’s easy to see why Tara and Steve chose the city they love (and the Taj Boston) for their elegant black tie wedding!

Starting on a lovely August day, this wedding began with the ladies gathered together in the bridal suite. Tara enjoyed some light-hearted fun together as they prepped for the day ahead. The bridesmaids dressed in floor length gowns while the gentlemen looked sharp in a classic tuxedo. Tara’s dress was a Vera Wang ballgown with a veil that framed the bride perfectly. Never one to disappoint, Winston Flowers created classic bouquets for the ladies to carry with white and cream flowers that felt timeless and lush.  

The couple selected the Main Dining Room at the Taj for its stunning grandeur melded with refined intimacy. One of the bride’s favorite memories is the look on Steve’s face when she began walking down the aisle.  They wed under a chuppah surrounded by their nearest and dearest where they exchanged personalized vows.  

After the ceremony, we headed over to the Boston Public Garden to capture some fun bridal party shots while the guests enjoyed cocktail hour.  We absolutely adore capturing these candids as the bridal party walked through the streets of Boston – between the ear to ear smiles and the stunning backdrops – we can’t shoot enough great shots!

The Rooftop at the Taj offers everything they were looking for in a reception location – expansive city views, modern & chic decor – the perfect mix of black tie sophistication.  The setting was complemented nicely with classic centerpieces of white roses and floor-length linens. Mini-lanterns lined the ceiling giving everything a romantic glow. Guests packed the dance floor and partied the night away.  A good time was definitely had by all.

One of our favorite parts of the evening was the couple’s send off. The guests gathered to toss white rose petals at the newlyweds as they departed.  We agree with the bride –  capping off the evening with that last bit of laughter, love, and happiness was a great way to end the night!

Working with the expert staff at the Taj is always great – we can’t thank them enough along with all the great vendors we had the pleasure of working with.  Congratulations again Tara and Steve!

This beautiful day in the heart of Boston was the perfect setting for Katie + Chris’s enchanted Summer Taj Boston wedding. The bride and groom got ready at the hotel and Chris was blown away when he entered Katie’s room to see his glowing wife to be for their first look.

Before the bride and groom officially tied the knot, we took a stroll through the Boston Public Gardens with the wedding party to capture the sheer bliss on the faces of the couple as well as their wedding party and families. Shortly after, we arrived at St. Cecilia Parish for the Catholic ceremony Katie + Chris stood in front of their loved ones for. The ceremony couldn’t have been more beautiful, from the high ceilings lined with glowing stained glass to the massive stone pillars and remarkably painted walls of the Parish.

Spirits were high as the bride and groom arrived at the reception to what looked like a romantic scene torn out of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The lighting gave a fantastical sense of wonder to the magical night as the greenery displayed the natural and calming qualities of the Shakespearean setting.  It was very easy to get lost in the natural feel and lush surroundings, to the point where all thoughts and signs of being in the big city were lost in the elegant array of beautiful flowers and decor.

Thank you to the Taj Boston and the team at Amy Kimball Events for being so lovely to work with and a heartfelt congratulations and thank you to Katie + Chris for having us there to capture your beautiful Spring Taj Boston wedding celebration!

A gorgeous day and classic Back Bay location made for the perfect combination for Melissa + Peter’s Spring Taj Boston wedding. The bride and groom wanted a classic and traditional wedding throughout all the aspects of their big day, from the soft flowers, to the beautiful Church ceremony (which held extra special significance to Melissa), to the evening reception in the elegant Taj Boston Grand Ballroom.

The wedding ceremony was held at the Collage of the Holy Cross, St. Joseph Chapel, which is were Melissa went to school. The inside of the church was stunning, with a high domed ceiling and lots of colorful stained glass for a warm, intimate feeling. This beautiful catholic ceremony was filled with amazing music and the service was one of the most important elements to the evening for Melissa + Peter.

Coming out of the church after the “I do”s, the Spring weather was absolutely perfect. We couldn’t help but take a few photographs of the happy newlyweds on the steps of the chapel, before heading back to Boston. While guests enjoyed cocktail hour we took Melissa, Peter, and their wedding party over to the Boston Public Garden for some beautiful formals photographs.

The Ballroom was transformed into the classically elegant wedding reception Melissa had been dreaming of, with textured linens and gorgeous floral arrangements. The space was filled with rich, warm color, so the soft ivory flowers, and touches of gold were the perfect choice to enhance the natural elegance of the space without overwhelming it. Both the high and low floral arrangements were paired with candle votives, giving the room a warm romantic glow as soon as the sun started to set.

Thank you to the Taj Boston for being so lovely to work with and a big congratulations and thank you to Melissa + Peter for having us there to capture your beautiful Spring Taj Boston wedding celebration!

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 day of Fall, and Caroline + Drew could not have asked for a more perfect day for their Taj Boston Wedding. The bride and groom wanted a classic and traditional wedding throughout all the aspects of their big day, from the soft white flowers, to the beautiful Church ceremony (which held extra special significance to Caroline), to the evening reception in the elegant Taj Boston Grand Ballroom.

Caroline + Drew both love the color navy, so they decided to accent Caroline’s strapless white wedding dress and bouquets of white roses with deep navy blue dresses for the bridesmaids. The flower girls’ ruffled white dresses matched the bride’s gown perfectly, with a classic blue sash around each one. Drew and the rest of the wedding party travelled to the church in a white wedding trolley, while Caroline and her father followed behind in a white limousine.

The wedding ceremony was held at the Holy Name Parish in West Roxbury, which is the very same church that Caroline’s mother and father got married in years earlier. The inside of the church was stunning, with a high domed ceiling and lots of colorful stained glass for a warm, intimate feeling. Caroline + Drew chose simple white flower accents leading down the aisle, to enhance the natural beauty and color of the church itself.

Coming out of the church after the big “I do”s, the Fall afternoon weather was absolutely picture-perfect. We couldn’t help but snap a few photos of the happy newlyweds on the steps of the Parish, with beautiful puffy clouds filling the sunny blue sky behind them! Before heading back to the Taj Boston for the reception, we took Caroline, Drew, and their wedding party into the Boston Public Garden for some outdoor wedding formals in the sunshine.

The Taj Boston Grand Ballroom was transformed into the traditional and elegant wedding reception Caroline + Drew had been dreaming of, with textured champagne linens and gorgeous table-top floral arrangements from Winston Flowers. The Grand Ballroom is full of rich, warm color on its own, so the soft white flowers were the perfect choice to enhance the natural elegance of the space without overwhelming it. Both the high and low floral arrangements were paired with gold candle votives, giving the room a warm romantic glow as soon as the sun started to set. The bride and groom had a lot of fun with their wedding cakes, choosing a traditional navy and white tiered cake AND a special New York Yankees themed baseball cake for their traditional cake cutting!

This classic and traditional Taj Boston wedding was the perfect way to kick off the Fall season, and we were so happy to be there to share the day with Caroline + Drew.

Last weekend, we had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Melissa and Bill at the beautiful Taj Boston in the city’s Back Bay!

The wedding ceremony took place at the Marsh Chapel, on the campus of Boston University. The chapel had special significance to Melissa and Bill as they got engaged in the Chapel’s outdoor courtyard. Melissa carried a beautiful bouquet of soft pink peonies as she walked down the aisle, for a perfect pop of spring color. After the ceremony, we stayed on the campus for some pictures around the chapel with friends and family before heading to the Taj Boston to start the party.

Melissa and Bill wanted their wedding to have the feeling of classic “Boston”. The dining room (overlooking the Public Garden and Newbury Street) at the Taj was the perfect venue for an elegant, romantic Boston wedding. The room was warm and intimate with golden champagne linens, and multi-toned pink peonies filling the centerpieces. Even their white wedding cake was covered in the soft pink flowers, adding a great splash of color to the Taj Boston ballroom. We loved the couple’s puzzle guest book where friends and family left messages on the back of puzzle pieces for Melissa and Bill. The front of the puzzle was their favorite photo from their engagement session.

Everyone was so happy to be celebrating this great couple, thank you to the newlyweds for letting us be a part of your special day.

Even though Blair and Jon now live out in Washington DC, these two Boston natives decided to come back home for their beautiful Boston Public Library Wedding!

We were excited to be able to photograph not only the wedding day itself, but the rehearsal dinner the night before on the Rooftop of the Taj Boston.

The next day we met up with both Blair and Jon at the lovely Fairmont Copley Plaza and then made the short walk across the street to the Boston Public Library, in the heart of downtown Boston’s Copley Square. At the center of the Library itself is a gorgeous outdoor Courtyard, lined with summer greens and flowers. Blair and Jon decided to have their ceremony out here, and the late summer weather held out perfectly for them. The reception took place inside the Library, with dinner being served in the stunning Bates Hall, and dancing taking place in the more intimate Abbey Room.

Because the Boston Public Library is already such an ornately decorated space in its architecture alone, Blair and Jon wanted to keep their decor simple, elegant and romantic. They added tones of white, cream, and champagne to compliment the space, rather than compete with it. Overall they wanted their entire wedding to be classic and traditional, so that “30 years from now, we would still love it!”.

Congratulations Blair and Jon, and thank you for being so fantastic to work with!

Praise from the Bride – Person + Killian photographed both my wedding and rehearsal dinner, and the pictures are amazing!!!! I received the first “teaser” while on my honeymoon, and literally started jumping up and down with excitement. Once the wedding is over, the photos are the only real memories/proof that you have that it really happened, and Lauren Killian captured the entire weekend perfectly. Aside from the pictures, the experience of working with Lauren was also amazing. She was so professional and made me feel comfortable throughout the weekend, which to me was priceless (she even helped take my veil out!) While I am sure there are plenty of great photographers in the area, working with Person + Killian is a guarantee for fabulous pictures and a calming presence on a day where those are the two things you want more than anything!
