As Boston wedding & event Photographers we certainly get to see many venues in the city! For Carissa & Andrew, Scampos restaurant, located in the Liberty Hotel provided the perfect scene for their chic Boston Rehearsal Dinner. This high- energy, contemporary space with shiny copper lamps &  glowing orange bar perfectly complimented the lavish decor of our talented friend Chad Michael Peters.

Over the past few weeks Person + Killian Photography has spent a lot of time at the Boston Public Library. It is one of Boston’s most unique venues and we have had a blast getting to know the space better!

Most recently we photographed the wedding of Erica and Mike, a photo-shoot for The Catered Affair and Boston Magazine’s launch party for Boston Weddings Fall/Winter 2010 Issue!  A big thank you to our friends at the BPL and Boston Magazine for thinking of us for these fantastic events!

Erica & Mike live and planned their wedding from NYC, so they ended up booking Person + Killian Photography over the phone. We had the pleasure of meeting them for the first time at their Engagement session in Newport, RI. From the minute this chic couple stepped in front of Lauren’s camera, she knew their wedding day  at the Boston Public Library would be nothing short of incredible.

The bride wore an amazing Monique Lhuillier dress that photographed perfectly with the beautiful pillars, unique architecture and outdoor courtyard of the Boston Public Library. Also, we loved the “library themed” details that were carried throughout their reception. For example, a library card catalog filled with flowers at the escort table was filled with adoraroble seating cards (which looked like library checkout cards).

A beautiful couple with fantastic taste having their wedding at the Boston Public Library….what more could you ask for?!

Person + Killian Photography could not imagine starting off the spring wedding season with a nicer couple, Leslie & David. The day began at the sophisticated Langham Hotel Boston. Due to April showers, the couple decided to have their formal photographs taken inside the Langham. This provided for a beautiful and unique setting for bridal formals.

The ceremony and reception took place at the scenic Downtown Harvard Club. Which is located on the 38th Floor of One Federal Street, this venue brings all of Boston into your reception, with breathtaking views of the entire city.

Congratulations to Leslie & David. It was a pleasure working with you and photographing your beautiful family.

 


The Huntington Theatre Company concludes its 28th season – a season of American stories with the award- winning playwright Craig Lucas’ modern classic PRELUDE TO A KISS.

A whirlwind romance. A storybook wedding. A kiss for the bride that suddenly changes everything. Craig Lucas (The Light in the Piazza, Longtime Companion) explores the enduring power of love and the nature of commitment in this breathtaking and life-affirming comedy directed by Artistic Director Peter DuBois.

“Craig’s play makes my heart race. It quite literally takes my breath away. I am thrilled to be introducing this contemporary master playwright to the Huntington Theatre Company.” — Peter DuBois

“An intimate and extremely delicate work. Exquisite writing with a sincerity that makes you believe.” — Variety

Person + Killian Photography kicked off the Spring 2010 season with Colleen and Matthew’s downtown Boston wedding. The afternoon started in the bridal suite of the Omni Parker House for Colleen and her bridesmaids, who wore beautiful shamrock green dresses perfect for this Irish/Scottish celebration. From there, guests arrived at the South End’s St. Brigid Church on Old Town Trolleys for the intimate ceremony.

After the ceremony, P+K took advantage of the beautiful architecture of Boston’s Historic Old City Hall for photos of the couple and their wedding party. The Omni Parker House is perfectly located for outdoor city shots in the heart of Downtown Boston!

Guests were then treated to a traditional Irish and Scottish inspired cocktail hour complete with clover plants and Scottish tartans wrapped around the centerpieces on the Omni’s terrace. The reception took place in the hotel’s spectacular rooftop ballroom where everything, including the groom’s cake (modeled from the grooms favorite brand of Scottish Whisky) incorporated their heritage.

Below are a few favorite images from their day that P+K could not wait to share!

A very special thank you to Beantown Bride for featuring Person + Killian Photography for their “Real Wedding” of the day. Shayna and Steve’s picture perfect wedding took place at the Boston Harbor Hotel.

You might say it took a while for Shayna Seymour and Stephen Carr to get to a first date. After the two met in San Francisco, the romantic timing was never quite right. As friends, they secretly admired each other from afar, keeping in touch from different cities, connecting when possible. When both returned home to Massachusetts for work, they reunited for the “official” date that cinched their romance – a Red Sox victory over Yankees at Fenway Park. “It took us six years, but it was worth the wait.” Stephen, a school administrator, popped the question to an unsuspecting Shanya, a television journalist, on a romantic evening – complete with candles, rose petals and a little black ring box pulled from the boughs of their Christmas tree – planned just for her.

Shayna and Stephen were married on August 5, 2007 in front of 250 friends and family members at the Boston Harbor Hotel. The hotel, mix of modern sophistication and old world charm, was an ideal location for a couple wanting to marry in Boston, on the harbor. Shayna explains, “It just felt perfect. We loved the fact that the venue was on the water.” With the ornately decorated hotel as a backdrop, Shayna looked simply stunning in her white Romona Keveza gown and cathedral length veil. She carried a a bouquet of orchids and calla lilies, picking up the lively color scheme of mango, yellow, white and sage, found in every detail of the wedding. Steven and his groomsmen were dashing in navy blue Brooks Brothers suits, while bridesmaids wore complimenting J. Crew designs in saffron yellow.

The celebration was orchestrated to perfection by Tasha Bracken of SD Events and Shayna and Stephen say they want to do it all over again – the first dance to Ray Charles, the abundance of brightly colored flowers and elegant tabletop landscapes, time spent with guests and private moments stolen away just for them. The most cherished memory? “Walking into our beautiful reception room to see how everything looked before all of our guests entered. It was a magical moment just for us.”

Person + Killian Photography was overjoyed to see Marsha & Brian’s elegant ballroom wedding at the Mandarin Oriental featured on Boston’s newest wedding resource site, Beantown Bride.

Beantown Bride, is a resource for brides-to-be planning luxury weddings in and around Boston.This fantastic site is filled with tips and trends to help brides and grooms create beautiful events that represent their style as a couple.

While Beantown is littered with luxury hotels, Marsha Epstein, 29, a business analyst, and fiancé Brian Woldow, 32, a lawyer, put their mid-June wedding deposit down on the not-yet-opened Mandarin Oriental on Boston’s illustrious Boylston Street. “It is one of our favorite line of hotels, is known for its exceptional service, and everything would be practically brand new for our wedding,’ noted Marsha.” “We also love the modern- Asian inspired decor in the Mandarin hotels.”

The two planned their modern aesthetic around a white, crème, pale yellow and pale pink palate, starting with the floor-length tulle Badgley Mischka bridesmaids dresses in buttercup hue. For Marsha, all plans for a strapless wedding gown went out the window when she laid eyes on a stunning white lace gown with halter straps, a sweet- heart neckline, and ribbon detailing by Monique Lhuillier. “I had tried on many gowns and when I tried on this gown showed it to my parents, we all knew it was ‘the one.'” she says. Her equally chic groom donned a black tuxedo by Calvin Klein with a black vest and white paisley tie.

As they were welcomed into the ballroom, guests marveled at the white hydrangeas, light pink peonies and pink roses highlighted by pink spot lighting and contrasting overall amber hue produced by specially staged up-lighting. The menu of seared filet mignon, crispy Anna potatoes and red wine sauce, or vanilla-scented Chilean sea bass with braised tomato and baby fennel, Yukon potato puree and lobster roe butter pleased even the most discerning palate. A martini bar added a classic element and kept spirits high as the dance floor rocked to the highly-touted band, Beantown. In lieu of wedding favors, a donation was made to the Robert J. Woldow Memorial Scholarship fund created in memory of the groom’s father. The couple looks back on the day fondly, reflecting, “I do not think there [is] one specific memory, but I think Brian and I were in awe of how everything came together perfectly.”

A big thank you to Beantown Bride for featuring our work and telling the story of Marsha and Brians beautiful beantown wedding!

Person + Killian Photography got caught up in the great candid moments of Elyssa and Jeff’s beautiful InterContinental Boston wedding.

The event was filled with beautiful fall color, decor and Jewish wedding traditions. Elyssa and Jeff were married under a traditional Jewish Chuppah draped with white fabric and beautiful fall-inspired floral bouquets. The nighttime Boston cityscape outside the window made for a perfect backdrop as the couple said their “I do”s. The party continued well into the night, with an energetic Hora and a stunning square 4-tiered wedding cake, cascaded with edible orange and white roses.

Below are a few of our favorite moments full of great expression, laughter, smiles and of course love! As always a big thank you to the InterContinental Boston Hotel and Event Planners Hopple Popple, for creating a magnificent setting for us to document!
