Boston Weddings and Events Person + Killian Photography Wedding Season Custom USB Flash Drives

While still looking back on the 2019 wedding and event season (and incredible decade of events), it’s also exciting looking forward to the upcoming year ahead. This time of year it’s all about gearing up for the 2020 season with new couples and destinations. In addition to working at some of our favorite wedding and event venues in Boston and Cape Cod this year, we’ll also be traveling to several new places ranging from Portland, Maine to the Catskills of New York.

The next couple of weeks will be filled with website updates, equipment cleaning and getting organized for the wedding and events that lie ahead. A big thank you to USB Memory Direct for partnering with us in the new year and creating new custom flash drives for 2020!

Boston Weddings and Events – Gearing up for the 2020 Season with new custom wholesale flash drives by USB Memory Direct made for Person + Killian Photography

The buzz of the new decade is definitely in the air and while I’m very much looking forward to the year ahead, I wanted to take some time to reflect back on all of the beautiful 2019 weddings and events that we were so fortunate to capture.

From Newport, Rhode Island to the North Shore and of course the heart of Boston, 2019 was filled with nearly 70 weddings, engagement portraits, mitzvahs and other various events. From Boston’s historic hotels and libraries to modern day museums and country clubs – it was a memorable year working in some of my favorite spots in the city and exploring new venues. Each wedding was unique in its own way and holds a special place in my heart.

It was a great year of social events starting the year with the 30th annual Boston Wine Festival at the Boston Harbor Hotel last January. Another highlight was capturing the Boston Red Sox opening day celebration for a 7th year in a row at Fenway Park in April. We captured several Boston Magazine events including the 2019 Taste of Boston. There were also several award celebrations, retirements parties and anniversaries for Boston hotels and numerous charity galas. We ended the year of events back at the Ritz-Carlton for the Fashion Santa Tour benefiting Boston Children’s Hospital.

A big thank you to all of the newlywed couples that chose Person + Killian Photography and all of our talented Boston industry wedding professionals and friends!  Cheers to an amazing 2020 and decade ahead!

With tremendous gratitude,

Jill

Boston Wedding and Event Photography 2019 a Year in Review blog for Person + Killian Photography with highlights of weddings, events and engagements portraits. Recap of New England Weddings from Rhode Island to the North Shore of Boston, Social and Corporate Galas and Events, Engagement Portraits and more!

It’s been 17 years of photographing weddings full-time. To this day, there is no bigger honor than being asked by friends in the Boston wedding industry to capture their personal milestone events. The wedding of Kaitlin and Jonathan was no exception. We have had the pleasure of working with Kaitlin and her twin sister Kelby many times over the years when they worked with their extraordinary mom Lynne (Lynne Enos Events). So many industry legends whom I have looked up to for many years came out to celebrate this amazing couple.

The Boston fall wedding took place on a gorgeous November day at the Boston Harbor Hotel. Before the first look with Jonathan, Kaitlin had a first look with her parents and bridesmaids in their suite. We spent the next couple of hours taking photographs of Kaitlin, Jon and their wedding party as the sun set and the harbor-side lights came on in the picture perfect setting.

The wedding ceremony took place in the North Atlantic room in the hotel and was exactly what Kaitlin had envisioned – a warm and romantic setting filled with candles, white orchards and a string quartet from Music Management. Linda Matzkin and Abby Gordon (284 Wedding and Events) were on site as guests but also to make sure the events of the day went off without a hitch.

The combined talents of Boston wedding royalty (all close family friends of the couple) created the perfect reception look for the couple in the Wharf Room – Domenic Cambio’s flowers (Domenic Cambio Studios), Suzanne Lowell (SBL Lighting), Danny Parker (Tommy Wholesale), Honey Palakavong (Lotus Floral Events) and Ted Daniels (Boston Harbor Hotel). Chris Cole and the Kahootz Band kept people on the dance floor all night. In addition to Kaitlin loving lots of color, she also loves Christmas. One of the highlights of the night was when Kahootz surprised everyone by playing one of Kaitlin’s favorite Christmas songs and Suzanne and the SBL Lighting team added to the excitement with confetti canons that went off over the dance floor creating an unforgettable moment in the night (and a great photo op)!

A big congratulations to Kaitlin and Jonathan and to the entire team that helped make the wedding of their dreams come to fruition!!!

Boston Fall Wedding of Kaitlin and Jonathan by Person + Killian Photography

It was a gorgeously sunny fall day in Boston (and the last day of the year before the clocks turned back). Blue skies above, blue waters out on the Boston Seaport, and two wonderful people ready to say “I do”.

This Boston Harbor Hotel wedding gave us everything we need on a stunning fall day. We loved the deep, rich colors of forest green and navy blue from the wedding party, paired with simple white bouquets. The waterfront right outside the Boston Harbor hotel made for the perfect backdrop for Catherine and James’ first look, and for portraits with the whole family. The warm fall light was just unbeatable, especially as it poured in through the Boston Harbor Hotel’s classic outdoor archway.

It was a short trip around the corner and over the bridge to Our Lady of Good Voyage for the wedding ceremony. Catherine and James were wed in a full Catholic Mass, as the last bits of the evening sun illuminated the stained glass above the altar. Following the ceremony, it was back to the Boston Harbor Hotel for the celebration to begin! We swapped sunlight for candlelight, as the Wharf Room was lit up by candelabra chandeliers and table-top tea candles. Before ending the night, we had to take the newlyweds back out to the waterfront for just a few more photos. The dark water and sparkling city lights beyond made for the perfect ending to this perfect fall wedding day.

Big thank you’s to Catherine and James, and to Ted Daniels and his entire team at the Boston Harbor Hotel!

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
