Christine and Joe’s winter wedding in downtown Boston gave us all the best that a wedding in Copley Square has to offer. From the Lenox Hotel to the Boston Public Library to the rooftops overlooking the Back Bay, we got to see it all!

The day started with Christine at her family home in Winchester and Joe getting ready at the Lenox Hotel. The ladies enjoyed a beautiful spread of traditional Armenian sweet treats while everyone had their hair and makeup done. At the same time, the guys were climbing to the rooftop of the Lenox Hotel for some photos high above Copley Square.

The bride and groom, wedding party, and their intimate group of invited guests met at the bride’s family church in Winchester. Christine and Joe said their “I do”s in a traditional Catholic Mass, before heading to Boston for the reception.

Following the ceremony, we headed to Copley Square for some gorgeous winter wedding photos outside of the Boston Public Library with the wedding party. We spent time both outside and inside the Boston Public Library with the couple. From there, we spent a few more minutes with the couple on the Lenox rooftop before heading inside to get the reception started. A stunning flower wall and classic white details in the Lenox’s Dome Room made this intimate winter wedding reception truly spectacular.

A special thank you to Christine and Joe, and to Taylor and her entire team at the Lenox Hotel for an unforgettable celebration!

It was a beautiful Memorial Day Weekend in Boston, and we were lucky to spend it with Danielle and David as they celebrated their wedding day at the Boston Harbor Hotel. For this bride and groom, it was all about making sure their friends and family really enjoyed their time together. The couple told us: “We wanted an elegant yet understated wedding where you could really feel the love between the bride and groom”. The couple chose a simple spring color palette — white and blush pink, with just a little bit of sparkle thrown in for fun.

All of the days events took place at the Boston Harbor Hotel, from the couple getting ready in the morning with their wedding party to their first look and formal photos out on the beautiful Boston waterfront. Danielle and David were wed in a traditional Jewish ceremony which included the signing of the Ketubah and saying their vows underneath a gorgeous floral chuppah. We loved the touch of sparkle they added to the Boston Harbor Hotel’s Wharf Room for their evening reception — a mix of simple white linens and sequined pink linens filled the room, with white and pink floral arrangements and beautiful soft candlelight. At the end of the day, this wedding was all about the love that Danielle and David share and getting to celebrate that love with the people around them who mean the most!

Thank you to Danielle and David for letting us be a part of your wedding day, and to the entire team at the Boston Harbor Hotel for bringing it all together.

“On Tuesday, April 24, 2018, Boston Planner’s Dining Club launched at Catalyst Restaurant in Cambridge. Founded by Tammy Golson of Tammy Golson Events and Sarah Glick of Brilliant Event Planning, Boston Planners Dining Club is a private group of some of Boston’s best wedding planners. The mission of The Boston Planners Dining Club is to foster community and camaraderie among wedding planners in Boston, while experiencing venues and vendors’ talents and services first hand.

Catalyst Restaurant not only showcased their gorgeous event space, but also delighted guests with an impressive menu created by Chef William Kovel. Marc Hall Design brought Spring to Boston with their bright florals inspired by Fete Collection’s watercolor design. This design was featured on the custom bar by PBD Events, as well as on the hand-stitched menus that Fete created. The live music by Speechless was the perfect soundtrack for the evening and Party Rental Ltd provided all of the rentals. The entire evening was captured by Jill Person of Person + Killian Photography and George Horemiotis of SH Videography.” – Boston Magazine

“As we enlisted the team of Boston wedding professionals for our first Boston Planners Dining Club,  we encouraged each team member to create something they were genuinely excited about. We challenged them to think big, be creative and deliver something never before seen, that would impress our seasoned and esteemed wedding planning colleagues. It was a collaborative process inspired by the original watercolor design Fete Collection created for the menu cards. Marc Hall Design pulled the oranges and yellows from this pattern for the floral design on the tables and Party by Design replicated this watercolor design and created our bespoke bar.

With accents of orange, a nod to the juxtapose of the spring we’ve had in New England, the big blooms were beautifully offset with accents of gray introduced in the linen napkins and smokey chargers. An underlined urban vibe was built by the use of industrial tables topped with white plexiglass and black flatware. The frosted votives were paired with the vellum overlay of the menus, which were hand-stitched with orange thread. The tiny gold salt and pepper shakers were a sweet compliment to the gorgeous gold on the hand-painted place cards marking each guest’s seat at our long dramatically long table.” – Tammy Golson of Tammy Golson Events and Sarah Glick of Brilliant Event Planning

A big thank you to Tammy and Sarah for including Person + Killian in such a special evening and to Sara and William Kovel and their entire team at Catalyst!

Ringing in the New Year is cause for celebration, and for taking a look back at another fantastic year of events. It always amazes us to see how much can happen in a year!

As 2017 comes to an end, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on this memorable year. 2017 brought with it many Boston weddings, mitzvahs and everything from charity galas to surprise parties. We traveled near and far this year throughout New England from the cliffs of Maine to the mountains of Vermont and to destination weddings in New York City and sunny Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Of course we are honored to have frequented our hometown throughout the year at greater Boston’s most prestigious and beautiful hotels, libraries and museums. We also had the pleasure of photographing some of the newest wedding and social venues from the historic JFK Presidential Library and Museum to the city’s newest upscale VIP nightlife destination – The Grand in Boston’s Seaport district.

As we look back on this year, we can say that we have had the chance to work with the most amazing couples and talented industry friends. You are all truly what makes what we do so special, memorable and what continues to make us love what we do! With sincere appreciation, gratitude and with a grateful hearts we say Thank You all for sharing your lives with us!

Wishing you all a Happy New Year full of good health, happiness and success in 2018!

All our best, Lauren and Jill

It was a beautiful weekend on the coast of Maine for the destination wedding of Katie and Renzo. The entire wedding took place at the Cliff House in Cape Neddick, ME — positioned right along the stunning rocky waterfront.

The wedding day began with Katie and Renzo both getting ready at the Cliff House, each with a private balcony overlooking the waterfront that gave them a wonderful preview of the day to come. We brought the bride and groom outside to the water’s edge for their first look, and even climbed down onto the rocky cliffs for some spectacular formal photos with the couple. The wedding party soon joined us on the rocks for some group shots that were truly unique to the Maine coastline, then it was back up to the Cliff House to get ready for the ceremony.

Katie and Renzo became husband and wife on the Cliff House’s garden terrace, which provided panoramic views of the ocean below. Following the “I do”s, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres were enjoyed around an outdoor fire pit as the sun slowly began to set behind the Cliff House. The evening reception was held inside the Cliff House’s Atlantic Ballroom, whose wall-to-wall windows showcased the ocean and coastline outside. Golden orbs of light hung from the ballrooms’ vaulted wooden ceiling, with golden linens, chairs, and warm candlelight on the tables below.

This Cliff House Maine wedding was the perfect reflection of the day’s events — traditional and gorgeous, but with a relaxed and easy-going vibe. The Maine coastline and sweeping blue ocean made for a perfect backdrop to the day’s events, and we were so glad to be a part of it. Special thanks to event planner Eric Czerlonka, Marc Hall Design, and the entire team at the Cliff House for a truly spectacular wedding day!

Congratulations Katie + Renzo and thank you for choosing Person + Killian Photography to document this beautiful day!

When we asked Chloe and Jeff how the envisioned their dream wedding day, they said they wanted a “nautical, classic New England wedding”. Their Cape Cod summer wedding at Wychmere Beach Club turned out to be all they wanted and more.

The Wychmere Beach Club (part of Longwood Events) is a quintessential Cape Cod wedding venue with a beautiful waterfront, docks full of sailboats, and a sandy stretch of beach. Chloe and Jeff took advantage of all this venue has to offer, starting with the bridal suite where Chloe and her bridesmaids got ready for the day’s events. The bride and groom had their first look on the docks overlooking the harbor, and were soon joined by their bridal party for some formal photos on the waterfront and nearby lawn.

The afternoon wedding ceremony was set up on the upstairs deck overlooking the water. Chloe and Jeff said their “I do”s in front of family and friends underneath a canopy of festoon lights. Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails on the deck while we took the new husband and wife out onto the beach for some photos with the gorgeous backdrop. The wedding reception took place in the Wychmere Beach Club’s upstairs Ocean Room. The couple chose classic white linens with accents of navy blue for the traditional nautical theme, which matched perfectly with the Ocean Room’s navy and white carpeting. Each table was topped with white and green florals and elegant white lanterns to complete the classic look.

This Cape Cod wedding was a dream come true for the happy couple, and we had so much fun joining them and their loved ones on this very special day. Special thanks to Heather and her team at the Wychmere Beach Club for a gorgeous event, and to Chloe and Jeff for letting us be a part of it!

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.

Southern New England Weddings magazine is an annual wedding magazine that provides inspiration for those looking to wed anywhere in Southern New England including: Rhode Island and Newport, Boston, Cape Cod, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard, Coastal Connecticut and Eastern Massachusetts. We are delighted to see the real wedding of Simin and Nick in their most recent issue.

Simin & Nick – Milton, MA – by Stacey Marcus: When Simin Lee and Nicholas (Nick) Bodnar tied the knot in a beautiful backyard ceremony and reception at the bride’s parents’ home in Milton, Massachusetts, guests enjoyed the flavors of the couple’s Persian and Jewish heritages sprinkled with the sweetness of pure love. The couple originally met in Beijing at a Chinese immersion program in 2008 while undergraduate students at Harvard University. It wasn’t until they were both graduate students at Harvard Medical School that their love blossomed. “It was a nice time to start a relationship,” says Simin, who recalls studying for 12 hours straight an then cooking together or enjoying take-out.

The couple delighted in an inside joke about enchanting chocolate shop in Cambridge called L.A. Burdick Chocolates where girls huddle to drink hot chocolates and couples canoodle and share a little slice of romance. Simin and Nick said that they were not yet on “Burdick’s level” and never made it to the chocolate until Nick suggested they visit on a snowy night during the historic 2014 wicked winter. “It was a very sweet surprise when Nick dropped to one knee and proposed,” says Simin.

Family played a major role in the ceremony with a trio of officiants: Dr. Andrew Bodnar, father of the groom, and Fereydoun Nazem and William Lee, uncles of the bride. Simin’s father, Dr. Thomas Lee, gave a toast about how the couple’s sweet story illuminates the power of destiny. The breaking of the glass was particularly significant to Simin and Nick, who come from different cultural backgrounds and broke barriers to create a union of love, peace and understanding.

Hearing the story of Kari and Evan, you can’t help but think it was always meant to be.  This white and gold ballroom wedding at the Fairmont Copley Plaza has an air of kismet and sophistication that was absolutely beautiful. From a humble blind date set up between two mutual friends, and some perseverance on Evan’s behalf, this is one tight-knit group (we even shot Kari’s sisters wedding back in 2014).

This September wedding began in the bridal suite where the women were gathered getting ready and sharing stories and bubbly. The bride wore a strapless Isabelle Armstrong gown with a sweetheart neckline.  Her bouquet, a white, slightly-asymmetrical bouquet full of textural flowers, completed the look. The men wore Armani Collezioni tuxes with bowties to complement the shimmering floor-length gold dresses the ladies were wearing.

It was important to the couple to be able to spend some dedicated time capturing photos. We carved out a nice block of time in the afternoon prior to the ceremony so that we could accomplish these wonderful shots. The couple opted to have their First Look just out front of the Fairmont Copley. Taking advantage of the historic backdrop Copley Square has to offer, we visited the steps of the Boston Public Library and the Trinity Church taking pictures as we went.

The couple worked with the collaborative team of Carol Silverston – The Original Touch and Jodi Raphael Events.  With the bride’s keen eye, she described the wedding as having “a romantic elegance with a slightly modern twist… to incorporate many different textures within the decor and a wide variety of flower types to add dimension, with touches of shine, mirrors, and candles to emulate a clean and sophisticated look”. We love shooting what this masterful team accomplished.

A custom built chuppah anchored the Oval Room where the traditional Jewish ceremony took place. Warm lighting and glowing candles set the romantic tone of the evening ahead.  A white runner accented with rose petals lead to the wedding canopy. It was draped in flowing fabric and a dense layer of flowers.

Before the guests entered the reception space, the couple took a moment to peek at Ballroom and squeeze in a quick turn on the dance floor. From the white and gold five-tiered wedding cake to the classic lounge furniture and white monogrammed dance floor, the space was full of romantic elegance.

As the night progressed from dinner and toasts to dancing and dessert, we loved every second of capturing this day! Thank you to the couple and their family for having Person + Killian capture another special day for their family. A special thank you to the team of vendors orchestrating this beautiful day. It’s always a pleasure to work with Tracey Gavin at the Fairmont Copley, Carol Silverston, Jodi Raphael and their teams!

For this week’s Boston Venue Spotlight we are thrilled to be showcasing the exquisite Boston Public Library with The Catered Affair. Founded in 1848, boasting stunning architecture and European charm, it’s no surprise The Boston Public Library has been featured in Best Venues in America. We have photographed show-stopping weddings at the Boston Public Library and consider ourselves pretty lucky that one of our country’s most historic and unique wedding venues is in our very own backyard!

When planning a wedding at the Boston Public Library there are several elegant spaces that will match any wedding style or inspiration.  The Abbey Room was designed after a palace in Venice and is chock-full of elegant details including rich wood paneling, full size murals, dramatic high ceilings, and marble fireplace. The Guastavino Room is ideal for those seeking a light and airy feel. Perfect for seated dinner receptions, this space boasts remarkable ceilings and columns with a slightly more modern touch. Ideal for cocktail receptions and cake cutting is the Chavannes Gallery. This space is adorned with wall murals and has an incredible view of the Boston Public Library’s grand marble staircase, which makes for some of our favorite photographs! Bates Hall, known as one of the main rooms of the library, is perfect for our newlyweds-to-be with a larger wedding. It showcases impressive domed ceilings and has fifteen windows overlooking Copley Square. Last but certainly not least, is the Boston Public Library’s lush and romantic Courtyard. Is there really anything more beautiful than be married in an outdoor courtyard beside a softly illuminated fountain with your guests nestled under the archways?

The Catered Affair, a full-service catering and event planning company, is yet another perk to choosing The Boston Public Library as your wedding venue. From passed hour-devours, full seated dinners to jaw-dropping dessert bars, The Catered affair will stun you and your guests with incredibly creative and mouthwatering cuisine that truly tastes as good as it looks.

Whether you’re wedding is large or small, summer or winter, the Boston Public Library and the Catered Affair offer endless beauty and versatility! Check out why we love photographing weddings at this historic and beautiful Boston venue in some of our 2015 wedding photography featured below:

When Ashley + Justin were looking for a venue for their dream Cape Cod wedding, they knew to look no further than the Ocean Edge Resort in Brewster. This sweet couple met many years ago while working at the resort, and it seemed only fitting that it serve as home to their “Best Day Ever”!

Spending the morning with Ashley + Justin as they prepared for the ceremony, we could feel the excitement in the air. The morning culminated in an emotional and sweet first look on the terrace of the Victorian-style mansion at Ocean Edge.

The beautiful ceremony took place down by the ocean, in front of a creative arch made from two doors finished with a coastal Cape Cod whitewash, and adorned with blush pink flowers. Justin was a dapper groom, in a navy suit, awaiting his bride. Ashley was stunning in her gown, with its intricate lace and delicate rose gold accents. Beachside formal photos followed, and we were thrilled to be able to capture the joy felt by the newlyweds and their wedding party.

Fun accents of gold and settings of navy and blush were a theme throughout the elegant tented wedding reception, including unique place cards  of Moet Hennesey’s limited edition summer champagne split that doubled as favors for the guests. The cake, by the Casual Gourmet, featured gold champagne bubble accents, and a unique topper announcing that the day, as Ashley and Justin had hoped, truly had been the “Best Day Ever!”. After dancing and celebrating, a visit by the traditional Cape Cod Good Times ice cream truck was a welcome sight, and a creative addition to this night to remember.

Congratulations Ashley and Justin! Thank you for choosing Person + Killian to document your celebration.
