When Arlene Cronk, owner of Invitations & Company, asked Person + Killian Photography to once again be a part of this spring’s Marketing to the High-End Bride event, we just couldn’t say no! This meeting (the 13th thus far) was held at the beautiful Charles Hotel in Harvard Square Cambridge, and included networking opportunities, a panel discussion with some of Boston’s top wedding professionals, and delicious breakfast prepared by renowned Chef Jody Adams of Rialto!

The early morning reception was held in The Charles Hotel’s own Rialto Restaurant and Bar, after which we moved into the Regatta Bar for the latter half and panel discussion. The Regatta looked stunning under the design of Marrero Events, with help from Rentals Unlimited for linens and decor and splashes of color from two gorgeous florists — Madison Floral and Karla Cassidy Designs. The topic of this years discussion was “Embrace your Competition”, with a panel consisting of event professionals from several different backgrounds including Janie Haas of Janie Haas Events, and prominent special event DJ Mike Amado of Entertainment Specialists.

As always, Person + Killian Photography had a blast photographing such a fun and beautiful event for fellow Boston wedding professionals!

Marketing to the High-End Bride is produced by Arlene Cronk, owner of Invitations & Company, a social stationery boutique in Boston’s Beacon Hill neighborhood since 1991. Held each spring and fall, the Marketing to the High-End Bride event is designed exclusively for upscale wedding professionals looking to reach their business goals in the most highly-competitive segment of the market.  The event format — a breakfast and panel discussion held every six months at a luxury Boston venue — is an alternative to the more structured forums of the typical professional association.  As such, it is designed specifically in both format and content to fit the intense work style and sophisticated informational needs of the high-end professional. – www.weddingprof.com

Omni Parker House Boston : The elegant and legendary Omni Parker House hosted its 11th Annual “Brides of Distinction” Bridal Brunch & Fashion Show earlier this month. The event provided brides the opportunity to plan their perfect wedding by meeting with top local vendors and wedding experts.

The fashion show, hosted by Flair – brides & maids of Boston, highlighted the newest in wedding gown and bridesmaids dress fashions. Guests were greeted with a mimosa and enjoyed brunch, cake and a fashion show while seated at beautifully decorated tables featuring the latest flower and linen designs. Jenny Johnson from “TV Diner” on New England Cable News was the emcee for the event.

The Omni Parker House included several dedicated Boston companies to showcase their offerings, including Person + Killian Photography. We captured the beautiful floral arrangements by Madison Floral, and linens by Rentals Unlimited.  Each model had their hair and makeup done by the talented team from Wedding Tresses.

When Lauren recently stumbled upon the Rock ‘n Roll Bride blog, Person + Killian Photography became an instant fan.

Creator Kat Williams describes her sassy blog as “a place to showcase couples that actually acknowledge that to plan a good wedding, they have to incorporate themselves and plan what they love for their day”. She also says it’s ” a place where it’s all about the weddings, the photography and the charm of normal people’s, extraordinary weddings”.

Today, Person + Killian Photography received our second feature wedding on the blog and were elated! A special thank you goes out to Kat for posting Mollie and Joshua’s Wedding that took place at the Boston Public Library and for naming Person + Kilian as one of her favoriate ‘rockstar vendors’.

Boston Photographers | Person + Killian Go HollywoodLately Boston has been the location of choice for Hollywood to film A list movies. Arlene Cronk of Invitations & Company jumped on this trend when she hosted an event recently called “Marketing to the High End Bride”. Lauren was asked to sit on the panel of Boston based executives with backgrounds based in either the bridal or entertainment industry. Joining her on this prestigious panel were, Chad Michael Peters, Nick Paleologos Executive Director of the Massachusetts Film Office, casting director Jodi Purdy-Quinlan,  DJ Greg Hodges, actor/filmmaker Chuck Slavin  & Cheryl Eagan-Donovan President Women in Film & Video New England.

As a Boston based wedding photographer, co-owner of Person + Killian Photography & photographer on the new CW reality show, “Hitched or Ditched” (premiers May 26th @ 9pm) Lauren had a few juicy tidbits to share.

Recently at a networking event, where Lauren was a featured panelist, we met adorable & approachable Abby. She is building her career as a wedding specialist at a top Boston venue and aspires to be an Event & Floral designer. Abby is recently engaged, has access to all sorts of “insider information” via her career & has been blogging all her tips & discoveries.  When she told us this, and the name of her site, Peaches by Plums, (how cute is that), of course we had to check it out!

Person+Killian was so impressed with Abby’s unique style, witty stories, and depth of content that we wanted to pass this blog along as a useful resource for brides who are thinking outside of the little blue Tiffany box! Abby also does a weekly column on Elizabeth Anne Designs where she shares more of her personal wedding experience.
