Margot and Kevin’s Boston Public Library wedding was the perfect reflection of what they wanted their wedding day to be. They wanted fun and easy-going vibes, and they wanted to really enjoy the day with friends and family. Above all, they wanted a gorgeous and memorable venue to celebrate in!

We asked Margot why they chose the Boston Public Library for their wedding, and here’s what she had to say:

We fell in love with the Boston Public Library as a venue because it is so beautiful and romantic. Given the space is so beautiful as-is, we leaned toward simple clean whites and greens to accompany the green details throughout the Courtyard and Bates Hall. The wedding was black tie and we wanted to keep things elegant!

The bride and groom took full advantage of the gorgeous spaces both inside and outside the Boston Public Library. After getting ready at the Fairmont Copley Plaza, we headed outside to Copley Square for the first look and formal photographs with the wedding party. Family joined in for photos inside the library prior to the ceremony. The ceremony was held outside in the always gorgeous courtyard as the sun set.

Guests enjoyed the warm summer evening for cocktails in the courtyard and the adjoining Cafe, before moving inside to Bates Hall for dinner. The final stop of the night was the Abbey Room for cake cutting and dancing surrounded by friends, family, and loved ones. A joyful and memorable night in a truly unforgettable venue — Margot and Kevin’s Boston Public Library wedding was everything they dreamed it would be!

A big thank you to Margot and Kevin for being such a joy to work with and to the teams at the Fairmont and The Catered Affair at the Boston Public Library for helping create the perfect day!

Jessica’s dream for her wedding day included a soft color palette, lots of natural light, and a special focus on time spent with friends and family. For the first two, there was no other place but the Belle Mer in Newport, RI. The gorgeous manicured lawns, modern and elegant white interior, and stunning views of the Narragansett Bay make this a one-of-a-kind Newport wedding destination. For the third part of Jessica’s wedding dream, we made sure to set aside a lot of extra time for photos with all of the special people in Jessica and Jason’s lives.

Jess and Jason fully embraced the elegant and chic vibes of the Belle Mer, with a muted palette of soft rose pink, creme, and dark wood. They took full advantage of the gorgeous scenery with lots of photos outside on the grounds and out on the waterfront. We loved being able to use the dramatic ivy wall and Narragansett Bay as backgrounds for photos throughout the entire day. Their late afternoon Newport wedding ceremony was held outside on the Belle Mer lawn, under a floral-accented chuppah.

The celebration moved inside to the Belle Mer Water Salon for the evening reception. The modern contrast of dark floors and white walls accented lots of summer greenery on each table and subtle pops of pink. Jess and Jason laughed and danced the night away surrounded by friends and family. We were even able to get outside one last time as the sun began to set for a few more seaside photos out on the water with the happy newlyweds.

Special thank you to Jess and Jason, Jodi Raphael and Aya Kappel at Jodi Raphael Events, and the Longwood Events team at the Belle Mer for a truly memorable summer Newport wedding!

For a summer wedding in Boston there is nothing quite like being out on Boston Harbor. Victoria and Yoni, affectionately referred to by friends and family as “Yontoria”, chose the Boston Harbor Hotel for their wedding celebration. They took full advantage of the gorgeous indoor spaces as well as the Boston Harbor right outside for all aspects of their wedding day.

From getting ready in the hotel suites to the wedding ceremony in the ballroom, there were so many places for celebration.  The waterfront, the boats, and of course the classic grand archway were all perfect places for formal photos of the family and romantic photos of the bride and groom.

Throughout the entire day, what stood out more than anything else was Victoria and Yoni’s fun-loving spirits, and their joy at being able to celebrate with their friends and family. It was a day full of love and laughter, and we were so thankful to be there to capture it all.

Special thank you to to Ted Daniels and his team at the Boston Harbor Hotel, to Jodi Raphael of Jodi Raphael Events, and of course to Victoria and Yoni! Mazel Tov!

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.
