We recently had the great pleasure of photographing Chris and Zach’s sophisticated fall Boston Public Library wedding this past November. We are so fortunate to be referred by our past couples, we consider it the highest possible compliment. In the case of Chris and Zach’s wedding, we had three past couples in attendance including two of Chris’s brothers and one of Zach’s best friends who were all in the wedding party.

The gentlemen were formal in their crisp tuxes with white bow ties from Brooks Brothers while the women in the bridal party wore black floor-length gowns from Belsoie. The first look took place in Copley Square, just outside the Fairmont Copley where we captured the sweet, quiet moment.

Chris and Zach wanted to celebrate together with friends and family showcasing the city they love. While final preparations for the day were underway and just before the ceremony, Chris and Zach hopped on a trolley and visited some of their favorite locations in Boston with their wedding party. They stopped in their South End neighborhood for a few photos with their adorable lab, Ezra, and continued along to the Comm. Ave Mall as the holiday tree lights were being strung. Next, off to the Public Garden and Charles River Waterfront and finally, iconic Acorn Street in Beacon Hill.

Officiated by a good friend, the couple held their wedding ceremony in the library’s stunning Courtyard. Surrounded by their loved ones, Chris and Zach exchanged their vows. After the ceremony, cocktail hour followed in the Guastavino Room.

While guests finished cocktail hour, we made our way upstairs to Bates Hall for the reception. The quintessential green lamps along the tables popped against a vibrant array of orchids. Gorgeous lighting and linens filled out the space making it warm and inviting. After toasts and cake cutting, the Boylston Room was transformed into a lounge and the Abbey Room for dancing. A good time was had by all while we captured the hora complete with the Mannequin Challenge; an evening full of laughter and celebrating.

Thank you to the wonderful team of professionals we had the pleasure of working with on this lovely wedding and congratulations again to Chris and Zach. Thank you for letting Person + Killian Photography be a part of such a special day for you both!

Described as the perfect match, these high school sweethearts had a romantic fall Four Seasons wedding in Boston – and it was picture perfect. While preparations for the day were in full swing downstairs, we joined our bride and groom in their suites at the Four Seasons. Jade, with her ladies alongside, was busy putting the final touches on. The bride chose a ruffled, mermaid-style Vera Wang dress paired with a lovely veil and a beautiful mixed bouquet of garden roses and orchids. We found PJ in his suite getting ready for his First Look. The groom and his groomsmen wore classic black-tie formal tuxes while the bridesmaids wore flowing dresses in soft muted tones.

The couple opted to have a First Look before the ceremony. They wanted to allow for plenty of quality time later with their loved ones. The First Look was private and sweet before we headed outside to capture formal photos in the Public Garden. From there, we made our way to Charlestown to St. Mary’s Church for the wedding ceremony. With gloriously vaulted ceilings and a sweet homily, the couple exchanged nuptials surrounded by their nearest and dearest.

The celebrating continued with a festive cocktail hour back at the Four Seasons before making our way into the beautiful grand ballroom. From the lavish floral wall that was bursting with flowers and the mixed centerpieces with towering magnolia leaves to their 7 tiered wedding cake and gorgeous lighting plan, there was not a shortage of loveliness. You know it’s going to be a good party when the dance floor gets packed before dinner!  We had such fun capturing the rest of the evening with heartfelt toasts, excellent food and of course, more dancing!

Congratulations once again, Jade and PJ, thank you for having Person + Killian capture your special day. Big thank you to Philip Descamps and his team at the Four Seasons Boston along with an amazing team of fellow vendors.

Early this fall we had the pleasure of capturing Lauren & John’s Boston Symphony Hall Wedding with Rafanelli Events.  The lovely day began at the Fairmont Copley Hotel in Boston where we found the wedding party readying for the day ahead. Lauren and her ladies put their finishing touches on while John and his groomsmen dressed nearby.

The couple chose to do their First Look on the historic front walkway of the Fairmont Copley. We love capturing this highly anticipated moment and this sweet and loving couple was no exception. Right after, we hopped on a trolley to head over to the ceremony location in Chestnut Hill. The couple was to be married at St. Ignatius Church on the campus of BC where the couple met!

Built in 1900, Boston Symphony Hall is a historic landmark and shooting events there is always remarkable. Lauren and John’s vision was brought to reality with a formidable design team. The space was washed in vibrant lighting which accented the architecture. The setting was balanced with modern decor pieces and divine white flowers in assorted arrangements throughout the venue. Full of energy with a busy dance floor and enjoyment all around, the celebration continued into the night.

We were fortunate to work with wonderful vendors including the talented team at Rafanelli Events. We thoroughly enjoyed being a part of this day, capturing this wedding was an absolute pleasure and thank you again to Lauren and John and their kind and gracious families for having us there!

It’s no secret that we love the city of Boston, and of our many favorite places to capture a wedding, the Taj Boston offers a blend of grand luxury and timeless style. It’s easy to see why Tara and Steve chose the city they love (and the Taj Boston) for their elegant black tie wedding!

Starting on a lovely August day, this wedding began with the ladies gathered together in the bridal suite. Tara enjoyed some light-hearted fun together as they prepped for the day ahead. The bridesmaids dressed in floor length gowns while the gentlemen looked sharp in a classic tuxedo. Tara’s dress was a Vera Wang ballgown with a veil that framed the bride perfectly. Never one to disappoint, Winston Flowers created classic bouquets for the ladies to carry with white and cream flowers that felt timeless and lush.  

The couple selected the Main Dining Room at the Taj for its stunning grandeur melded with refined intimacy. One of the bride’s favorite memories is the look on Steve’s face when she began walking down the aisle.  They wed under a chuppah surrounded by their nearest and dearest where they exchanged personalized vows.  

After the ceremony, we headed over to the Boston Public Garden to capture some fun bridal party shots while the guests enjoyed cocktail hour.  We absolutely adore capturing these candids as the bridal party walked through the streets of Boston – between the ear to ear smiles and the stunning backdrops – we can’t shoot enough great shots!

The Rooftop at the Taj offers everything they were looking for in a reception location – expansive city views, modern & chic decor – the perfect mix of black tie sophistication.  The setting was complemented nicely with classic centerpieces of white roses and floor-length linens. Mini-lanterns lined the ceiling giving everything a romantic glow. Guests packed the dance floor and partied the night away.  A good time was definitely had by all.

One of our favorite parts of the evening was the couple’s send off. The guests gathered to toss white rose petals at the newlyweds as they departed.  We agree with the bride –  capping off the evening with that last bit of laughter, love, and happiness was a great way to end the night!

Working with the expert staff at the Taj is always great – we can’t thank them enough along with all the great vendors we had the pleasure of working with.  Congratulations again Tara and Steve!

Katherine and Andrew knew they wanted a sophisticated and elegant black tie wedding from the day they got engaged. They chose the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in the Back Bay for their summer wedding.

Design, decor and coordination of Katherine and Andrew’s vision was brought to fruition by the team at Hopple Popple, Inc and was even more beautiful than they had envisioned. Echoed in the dance floor, coordinated yet unique bridesmaids dresses, and the floral design by Winston Flowers (with regal pops of red), a color palette of black and white paired nicely with the black tie celebration.

Their emotional first look took place outside in the private courtyard of the hotel which also made for a perfect backdrop for photographs with the couple’s family and friends. The Mandarin Ballroom was transformed for the ceremony with floor to ceiling white drapes and accented with 2 stunning floral arrangements created by Winston Flowers at the beginning of the aisle. Katherine and Andrew exchanged their vows in a traditional Jewish ceremony under a beautiful floral chuppah.

A combination of rectangular mirrored tables mixed with classic rounds blended perfectly for the reception and were topped with an array of white flowers and candlelight. Following dinner, the newlyweds and their guests enjoyed the evening on dance floor with music from Night Shift Entertainment.

A big thank you to the team at the Mandarin and to Linda Matzkin and her team at Hopple Popple for a wonderful day! Congratulations Katherine and Andrew and thank you for choosing us to document your wedding!

Weddings are always a reason to celebrate, so what better day to tie the knot than New Year’s Eve? We absolutely loved welcoming in 2015 with Juliette and Noah’s New Years Eve Winter Wedding at the Ritz-Carlton Boston Common. We met up with the couple as they got ready at the Ritz before heading over to Cambridge for the ceremony in Harvard Yard.

The Harvard Memorial Church was the perfect venue for Juliette and Noah’s ceremony because they both attended Harvard for grad school. The couple also chose to not see each other until Juliette walked down the aisle which made for a very emotional ceremony.  The floral arrangements and lanterns from Winston Flowers added a special touch.

After the ceremony everyone headed back to the Ritz for the cocktail hour and reception. They enjoyed toasts from their loved ones and celebrated all night into 2015! There were even fireworks just outside the windows, illuminating the dark night sky. This was such a fun way to ring in the New Year and to celebrate such a special day for Juliette and Noah.

A big thank you to the team at the Ritz-Carlton, Boston Common and Congratulations again Juliette and Noah!

Winter Wedding at the Ritz-Carlton Boston Common with Winston Flowers by Person + Killian Photography – 251 Newbury Street – Boston, MA 02116 – 617.236.1662

Courtney and Kurt’s Four Seasons Hotel Boston Wedding was a gorgeous autumn event with a vintage and classic feel. Purple, white and silver colors with birch and organic fall decor was the bride’s inspiration, and the Four Seasons Hotel was the perfect venue to make her unique vision a reality. Courtney’s 1920’s engagement ring and Amy Kuschel lace cap sleeve wedding gown were gorgeous details that added to this classic affair.

The couple got ready at the Four Seasons and we were able to capture their special first look atop the grand staircase under a stunning crystal chandelier. We were joined by the wedding party and continued taking photographs around the hotel before the intimate wedding ceremony. The bride’s deep purple bouquet of orchids from Winston’s matched perfectly with her bridesmaids dresses, and these stunning floral selections continued throughout the night.

The Stuart Room was transformed for the ceremony with pine trees, birch, ivory hydrangeas and delicate moss. The aisle was lined with white rose petals which highlighted the warmth and romance of this special event. Following the ceremony, guests headed to the Aujourd’hui room to begin celebrating with the newlyweds. Unique botanical touches including pinecones, birch bark and purple floral centerpieces combined with the spectacular lighting by Suzanne B. Lowell made the room come to life with an aura of elegant simplicity and distinctively classic New England flair.

During the reception the couple shared their first dance and enjoyed a classic three tier white wedding cake. This Four Seasons Boston Wedding was truly a classic stunner with beautiful blooms from Winston’s, inspiring and unique vintage decor and this wonderful couple and their guests. Thank you Robyn Yee and the entire team at The Four Seasons for being so wonderful to work with. Congratulations Courtney and Kurt!

Alyssa + Dan first met at Boston University where they were both a part of the track team. Seven years later, their summer wedding at the State Room Boston showcased their love, their alma mater, and the city that they call home!

The bride and groom started the day getting ready at the Langham Hotel in Downtown Boston. Daniel surprised Alyssa with a fun gift — a custom pair of white Nike running shoes with purple accents to match their wedding colors. The shoes even had their wedding date and wedding hashtag printed on the back! They decided not to see each other before the wedding, so we went straight to Boston University’s beautiful Marsh Chapel to start the ceremony. Because both Alyssa + Daniel are Boston University alum, this historic BU wedding chapel was the perfect location for their afternoon wedding ceremony. Following the ceremony, we stayed around the chapel to capture formals with the couple’s family and wedding party and took advantage of the beautiful Boston University campus before heading to the State Room Boston to start the celebration. We made a quick stop en route to the State Room at Boston’s Post Office Square for some photos with Alyssa + Dan before joining the rest of the guests at the cocktail hour.

The evening reception took place in the State Room Boston’s Harborside Ballroom, 33 stories high above Boston’s bustling downtown. The panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows made for a stunning view of the Boston harbor and city below, and the couple chose colors of white and ivory with fun lavender and dark purple accents for their decor. They described their wedding day inspiration as “modern city” — clean and chic. Following a first dance, toasts, and a traditional cake cutting, guests packed the dance floor to celebrate with this wonderful couple!

A very special thank you to the entire State Room Boston team for another flawless event. Congratulations Alyssa + Dan on your beautiful Boston wedding day!

We always adore photographing weddings at Four Seasons Hotel Boston and were thrilled to be back again for the wedding of Tiffany and Matthew.  The couple described their wedding vision as classic, traditional and elegant so when they were searching for a venue, the Four Seasons was a natural choice. Tiffany and Matthew chose to keep to a white color palate for their big day and add color with the venue’s natural colors and uplighting. Prior to the ceremony, we spent some time with the couple as they got ready in their  suites. Tiffany chose a white mermaid Casablanca dress accented with Badgley Mischka pumps while Matthew and his groomsmen dressed in classic black tuxedos.

The Governor’s Ballroom was transformed for the wedding ceremony with white floral arrangements of orchids and calla lilies atop tall pedestals on each side of the altar.  The white runner ran the length of the center aisle between the  chiavari chairs with a curved setup matching the shape of the ballroom.

Following the ceremony, we spent some time with the couple and their wedding party taking photographs around the hotel including the grand staircase.  From there, we headed outside with Tiffany and Matthew for photos of the couple under the white lights in the square just behind the Four Seasons. Meanwhile, guests enjoyed the cocktail reception in the Four Seasons Hotel Boston Aujourd’hui room featuring three separate monogrammed ice sculptures including hors d’oeuvre’s and champagne.

Before guests entered the reception, the bride and groom had a sneak peek of their reception in the Four Seasons Hotel Ballroom. Tables were topped with white textured linen, paired with white chiavari ballroom chairs, and a mix of low and high white floral centerpieces. Natural colored pin spot lighting accented each of the arrangements along with white candle light. Purple uplighting around the ballroom added a pop of color to the decor. Tiffany and Matthew were welcomed into their reception with a fun and energetic grand entrance, followed by the couple’s first dance that set the pace for the evening. Everyone was so happy to be celebrating this special day with such a fantastic couple.

Gul and Ali traveled all the way from Istanbul, Turkey to celebrate their beautiful autumn wedding at the Hampshire House Boston. Gul’s sister lives right in the Hampshire House neighborhood on Boston’s historic Beacon Hill, and the couple and their families often make the trip from Turkey to visit. When it came time to start planning their wedding, they knew Beacon Hill was the place they wanted to be — and the Hampshire House Boston was the perfect venue for their beautiful and intimate wedding celebration!

We met up with the bride and groom at the Liberty Hotel immediately following their wedding ceremony, and took some photos as the bride got into her beautiful Vera Wang gown for formal photos and the evening reception. We spent the late afternoon with the newlyweds in the Boston Public Garden for some romantic shots in front of the beautiful Autumn foliage. Gul’s stunning gown was matched perfectly with a bouquet of white and purple calla lilies. As the sun started to set we made our way to the Hampshire House Boston for the evening wedding reception.

The Hamsphire House’s upstairs Library was beautifully decorated for an intimate wedding dinner party, starting with the customized chalkboard sign pointing guests in the right direction. A long dining table was set in the middle of the room for the 16 guests — Gul + Ali’s closest friends and family from both Boston and Turkey. Purple uplighting gave the room a beautiful wash of color, and the table was topped with long runners and a series of matching floral arrangements. Large candles also lined the center of the table, giving the room a beautiful warm glow. The light pink wedding cake featured a beautiful set of pink dusted edible flowers, and was set on a table covered in purple and white flowers to match the centerpieces and bride’s bouquet.

Gul, Ali, and their guests enjoyed a beautiful evening with each other, including heartfelt toasts, and a fun night of dancing for the whole group. We were so happy to be a part of this very special wedding on Beacon Hill, thank you to the entire team at the Hampshire House Boston and congratulations Gul + Ali!

Hampshire House Boston – Beacon Hill Destination Wedding of Gul and Ali by Person + Killian Photography – 251 Newbury Street, Boston, MA 02116 – 617.236.1662 – Jill@PersonKillian.com and Lauren@PersonKillian.com

It was the first day of Fall, and Caroline + Drew could not have asked for a more perfect day for their Taj Boston Wedding. The bride and groom wanted a classic and traditional wedding throughout all the aspects of their big day, from the soft white flowers, to the beautiful Church ceremony (which held extra special significance to Caroline), to the evening reception in the elegant Taj Boston Grand Ballroom.

Caroline + Drew both love the color navy, so they decided to accent Caroline’s strapless white wedding dress and bouquets of white roses with deep navy blue dresses for the bridesmaids. The flower girls’ ruffled white dresses matched the bride’s gown perfectly, with a classic blue sash around each one. Drew and the rest of the wedding party travelled to the church in a white wedding trolley, while Caroline and her father followed behind in a white limousine.

The wedding ceremony was held at the Holy Name Parish in West Roxbury, which is the very same church that Caroline’s mother and father got married in years earlier. The inside of the church was stunning, with a high domed ceiling and lots of colorful stained glass for a warm, intimate feeling. Caroline + Drew chose simple white flower accents leading down the aisle, to enhance the natural beauty and color of the church itself.

Coming out of the church after the big “I do”s, the Fall afternoon weather was absolutely picture-perfect. We couldn’t help but snap a few photos of the happy newlyweds on the steps of the Parish, with beautiful puffy clouds filling the sunny blue sky behind them! Before heading back to the Taj Boston for the reception, we took Caroline, Drew, and their wedding party into the Boston Public Garden for some outdoor wedding formals in the sunshine.

The Taj Boston Grand Ballroom was transformed into the traditional and elegant wedding reception Caroline + Drew had been dreaming of, with textured champagne linens and gorgeous table-top floral arrangements from Winston Flowers. The Grand Ballroom is full of rich, warm color on its own, so the soft white flowers were the perfect choice to enhance the natural elegance of the space without overwhelming it. Both the high and low floral arrangements were paired with gold candle votives, giving the room a warm romantic glow as soon as the sun started to set. The bride and groom had a lot of fun with their wedding cakes, choosing a traditional navy and white tiered cake AND a special New York Yankees themed baseball cake for their traditional cake cutting!

This classic and traditional Taj Boston wedding was the perfect way to kick off the Fall season, and we were so happy to be there to share the day with Caroline + Drew.

When we asked Elizabeth + Randolph to describe the look and feel of their wedding day, they said “rustic, romantic, and shabby chic”! This beautiful summer wedding took place at the Inn at Pleasant Lake in New London, NH, and was full of cute and creative DIY details that really showed the fun personalities of the bride and groom. With details like a clothespin photo wall and chalkboard signs, this lakeside wedding was a perfect mix of rustic country and elegant chic!

Elizabeth spend the morning with her bridesmaids getting ready at her mom’s lake house, located on the water of Lake Sunapee while Randolph and the groomsmen got ready at a nearby home on the water. The atmosphere was fun and casual — the ladies got their hair and makeup done, helped Elizabeth get into her wedding gown, and hung out with the couple’s three adorable dogs that made the trip all the way up from New York for the wedding day! We took Elizabeth and her wedding party outside for some formal photos on their private bridge before heading off to the church.

The wedding ceremony was held at the beautiful First Baptist Church of New London, an adorably quaint New England church in New London, NH. Elizabeth + Randolph’s unique wedding program featured an illustrated introduction of their entire wedding party, as well as “fun facts” about the bride and groom on the back. The inside of the white church was accented with large blue, green, and white floral arrangements from Winston Flowers, as well as a summery floral wreath underneath the pulpit.

Following the ceremony, we made our way to the Inn at Pleasant Lake for the reception, and took advantage of the late summer sunshine with some more wedding party pictures right on the shores of the beautiful lake. While the rest of the wedding party headed up to the wedding tent to enjoy cocktails, we spent a few minutes lakeside, taking pictures with Elizabeth and Randolph before beginning the evening party.

The tented wedding reception was full of fun rustic chic details — the tables were covered in burlap-colored linens and surrounded by wooden cabin chairs. Guests were directed to their dinner tables with personalized postcard escort cards, hung with clothespins on a fun DIY twine. Guests were welcomed into the tent with a rustic wooden door covered top to bottom in adorable pictures of Elizabeth + Randolph! Winston Flowers added a fun pop of blue and green to the reception tent with their beautiful arrangements.

After the first dance, dinner, and formal toasts from friends and family, the party really kicked off. Purple up lights filled the tent with color, and sparkling china lanterns were lit up around the outside of the tent. Even the trees outside the tent were covered in strings of white light, perfect for a fun summer wedding night. Everyone had a blast celebrating this day with such a wonderful and fun couple, and we were thrilled to be there with them to capture it all! Thank you to Elizabeth + Randolph for including us in your special day!
