The Logan Hotel Wedding Celebration

Throughout the last year, we have experienced quite a few micro weddings because of the pandemic. Though small, micro weddings are still just as elegant as full-sized celebrations. This rings true especially if you celebrate at a place like the Logan Hotel. Caset and Daniel, with a guest list under fifteen people, celebrated their big day at The Logan’s courtyard.

The Set Up

The Logan’s courtyard is an always popular choice for wedding ceremonies. The serene water feature and manicured grounds create the perfect setup for a wedding. In the center of the courtyard, two rows of white chairs lined a grassy aisle. Along the aisle, white flower petals were strewn with care to create the walkway. At the end of the aisle, Casey and Daniel’s chuppah stood tall. The chuppah, fully covered in elegant white flowers, set the scene for their wedding day. With decor from Jamie Rothstein Their stylish decor and The Logan’s ambiance took the small wedding to the next level.

Before the Ceremony

Before making their way to the ceremony, Casey and Daniel shared a first look atop The Logan at the Assembly Rooftop Bar. On the rooftop, Casey, made her way to her soon-to-be groom. They shared a touching moment as they saw each other for the first time on their wedding day. The rooftop proved to be an excellent choice for this, with stunning views all around. Even with the views though, the two could only focused their looks on each other. After their first look, Baiada photography snapped some photos of the eager couple.

Jessica and Sandra’s Langhorne Backyard Wedding

April 16, 2021 Wedding Films

A Backyard Wedding Ceremony in Langhorne, PA

A Change of Plans to the Big Day

Jessica and Sandra did not originally plan on a backyard wedding ceremony in Langhorne, but the events of the pandemic interrupted them. Determined to get married, after many changes to their plans, the two decided to have a smaller backyard wedding with their family and friends. Some guests were not able to physically attend, but were still able to celebrate via Zoom.  Through constant changes, help from family, and determination, Jessica and Sandra celebrate a beautiful day together.

Creative and Charming Decor

The backyard was beautifully decorated with homemade decor. The two had signs up with saying that intertwined their last names, such as “#KeepYourHeartYoung” and “CeraSoulMates.” Their decorations tied together their personalities with photographs and charming phrases. Even the pool had decorations in it. Floating on the water, a J, a heart, and an S were surrounded by white flowers. Everything fit perfectly in place to set the scene for Sandra and Jessica’s wedding.

From the First Look to the Ceremony

Before the ceremony, Sandra and Jessica shared a heartwarming first look. They stood back to back while holding hands. They twisted around, still hand in hand, and shared an emotional greeting. Sandy appeared to be holding back tears as she saw her bride-to-be for the first time, while Jessica reacted with pure excitement over the moment. After their first look, the two made their way to the backyard wedding ceremony.

At the ceremony, Jessica and Sandra recited their vows. Toward the end, you could see the excitement building between them as they placed rings on each other’s fingers. When pronounced, the two shared a first kiss while their guests cheered and whooped. After, they made their way back up the grassy aisle through cheering friends and family.

For the rest of the night, Jessica and Sandra spent their time with their loved ones in person and on Zoom. Though it was not the original plan, it was great for the two to have their loved ones join them in any way possible. Through an ipad, their virtual guests were able to view the ceremony and their first dance, along with saying congratulations to the two brides.

During the speeches, Sandra’s cousin shared her feelings about Jessica and Sandra’s marriage. She raved about Jessica in the speech and how happy she is that the two found each other. She began to choke up as she talked about her “cousin and best friend.” She thanked Jessica for “loving my cousin in a way that no one else can, giving her a love she deserves, and being her biggest fan.” Her speech pulled at everyone’s heartstrings and truly expressed the love between Sandra and Jessica.

From Day to Night

After the speeches and dinner, the sun began to set. The day turned into night as Jessica, Sandra, and their guests extended their celebration under the stars. Everyone danced and celebrated throughout the night with newlyweds. Kids and adults alike had a great time belting out to music and throwing their hands in the air. Our Allure Films team was so grateful to be a part of this day, and especially to work alongside our friends from Morby Photography. Sanda and Jessica’s Langhorne wedding celebration showed that even if things do not go as planned, as long as you are surrounded by good family and friends, it will always be a great day.

Congratulations again to Sandra and Jessica! We wish you two many more fun and loving days together!

Jon & Alli’s Micro Wedding Video

April 2, 2021 Wedding Films

 When the pandemic hit Philadelphia last spring, weddings and events were some of the first things to be affected. Brides and Grooms that had spent months planning and years dreaming of their perfect wedding had to pivot last minute or postpone their plans. But, what we saw over and over this year is that love persists, even through trying times. We saw people come together and help each other out from all across the board. One of the biggest changes we saw in the industry this year was the shift to micro weddings and backyard weddings. The first micro wedding that we shot this year was for Jonathan and Alli, a couple who show a great deal of love and dedication. 

Jon and Alli allowed us to interview them to get a firsthand perspective on what it was like to shift to a micro wedding this year. Their reflection is beautiful and their love for each other is apparent. 

Jon and Alli’s Love Story 

Like any modern-day love story, Jon and Alli met online over social media. After talking online for a bit, they decided to meet up in Manayunk. It only took a short walk and conversation over lunch for them to know they were meant to be. 

After being asked how it feels now that they are officially married, they said that it doesn’t feel much different! The couple is incredibly happy and they feel like they are exactly where they need to be right now.

Jon and Alli Say Their Vows at Their Backyard Micro Wedding

Planning Through the Covid-19 Pandemic

Upon being asked about planning their wedding during the Covid-19 pandemic, the couple said they actually found it more stressful before they switched to a micro wedding. When they decided to have the wedding in their backyard, it allowed them to fully focus on what mattered to them. They chose what was most important for their ceremony, rather than juggling the opinions of family and guests. 

One of the things Jon and Alli were happy to not worry about was a time crunch on their big day. When everything is meticulously planned down to the minute, it’s easy to get caught up with timing and not live in the moment. Jon and Alli were able to ease into the day and just be present in their ceremony, the reason they were there in the first place. 

As many people did this year, Jon and Alli decided they didn’t want to postpone their life plans by pushing their wedding back, so they were happy to pivot to a smaller wedding. Once they made their decision, they went all in and didn’t look back. Jon and Alli say it was the easiest day they’ve ever had!

The Micro Wedding

Jon and Alli’s wedding took place in their beautiful backyard on a warm June day. With only a few people present, they said their vows under their chuppah together, surrounded by family. They still had their first dance and cake cutting, just like a traditional large wedding. Jon and Alli don’t feel like they missed out on anything during their big day!

To stay safe and still celebrate, they also had made matching face masks for the guys and girls to wear throughout the ceremony. Jon and Alli also planned a drive-by parade after the ceremony. Anyone local could drive by and celebrate the newlywed couple. 

Live Streaming 

At a traditional wedding, there is a limit to the number of people you can invite. Because Jon and Alli live-streamed their wedding, people from all over the world could join in and celebrate with them. They had guests from Kuwait, Jamaica, and all over the US. Everyone they love could be present without the worry of travel or timing. 

They also prerecorded a few clips to play on their live stream like the ring bearer and flower girl walking down the aisle. These small touches over Zoom were fun and meaningful additions to their video!

Love Persists

Even during a pandemic, many couples like Jon and Alli were able to pivot and create beautiful memories with their micro weddings. By cutting down the distractions, you can focus on what really matters to you on your special day. If you are considering a micro wedding, don’t be afraid to readjust your goals and priorities for your wedding day. You can make it great, if not better, than what you originally planned!

Jon and Alli felt as though their wedding was perfect. They were so happy they didn’t hold back their life plans to reschedule their big day. A big thank you to the happy couple for letting us interview them, and congratulations to Jon and Alli!

An Outdoor Wedding Ceremony in the Grass in Merion Station

Karin and Emanuel proved that a simple grassy backyard in Merion can turn into an intimate wedding location. With decor from Jamie Rothstein Floral & Event Design, their backyard venue transformed into an elegant outdoor ceremony location. A gorgeous chuppah adorned in white flowers and greenery stood tall at the end of the aisle. Along the aisle, scattered white flower petals lined the walkway. The set up pulled together the florals with the already natural atmosphere.

First Look

Before the ceremony, Emanuel waited for his bride at the chuppah, the bouquet in hand. Karin made her way to meet him and tapped him on the shoulder for them to see each other for the first time that day. Immediately, the two started getting emotional and shared a hug. Their big day had finally arrived! Emanuel admired his bride-to-be before they made their way back.

First Look at Merion Wedding Video Clip

Signing the Ketubah

Before the ceremony begins, traditionally, Jewish couples sign a Ketubah. The Ketubah is essentially a marriage contract for the bride and groom. Signed by the rabbi or cantor, the marrying parties, and witnesses, the Ketubah will then be read aloud at the ceremony. It is an essential piece of the Jewish wedding ceremony and has been practiced for thousands of years. After signing, Emanuel made a heartfelt speech to his brothers, thanking them for being a part of he and Karin’s special day and signing the Ketubah. After signing, everyone made their way outside for the ceremony.

The Outdoor Wedding Ceremony in Merion

Karin and Emanuel celebrated a traditional ceremony underneath their beautiful chuppah. Many of their friends and family took part in the ceremony, reciting traditional readings. Karin and Emanuel spent their ceremony smiling at one another throughout, and then making their vows. After placing their rings on each other’s fingers, Emanuel smashed the glass. Their family and friends erupted in a roar of “Mazel tov!” The two danced their way back up the aisle as their guests cheered for them and clapped in celebration.

The Reception

After the outdoor wedding ceremony, everyone made their way to the outdoor reception. On the way, everyone stopped to hug and congratulate the happy couple. Tears were shed and emotions ran high as family and friends came together to celebrate. Then, the two shared a dance on the pavement underneath the sky. After giving Karin a spin, Emanuel grinned at Karin and the two shared a laugh. It was as if no one else was around them. They continued to dance as their guests cheered on around them. Their then guests joined in for the horah. Energy ran high within the group as everyone celebrated Karin and Emanuel’s special day.

First Dance in Merion Station

After all the dancing, everyone made their way to the reception tent. Decorated similarly to the chuppah, the tent had greenery draped on it along the inside. The decor for this Merion wedding matched perfectly with the outdoor setting. With great weather and a  great community of people around them, Karin and Emanuel celebrated the perfect day.

Videography Coverage: Which Is Right For You?

March 11, 2021 Wedding Films

Videography Coverage Options and Film Lengths

At Allure Films, we offer a variety of videography coverage options. We have five options, starting from a basic package to a more detailed option for your big day. Everyone receives our “Feature” package when they book with us, and then every package after that builds from it.

Within these packages are different lengths of films: The ninety minute Feature Film, the three to five minute Preview film, and the one minute Social film. Each of these films captures your wedding day story, varying only by the details included. With different length films, it allows you to share your wedding multiple different ways.

Film Lengths

The Social Film

Our newest addition to our videography offerings is the social film. This one minute film is designed to be shared on social media, specifically Instagram. This gives you a great way to show off the primary parts of your wedding day. This film gathers every incredible moment of your day and condenses it into a one minute video. Check out the video below for an example from Leah and Matthew’s wedding day.

The Preview Film

One step above the social film is the Preview Film. Preview films can vary in length but are typically between three and five minutes. Previews films hold more detail than the social film, and show off more of your special day by gathering the most important parts. Every tier of our coverage options comes with a Preview Film. See the film below for the Preview version of Anya and Russell’s wedding day:

The Recap Film

This highlight film is perfect for entertaining and includes all key events of the day with customer-selected music and key live audio. At around 15 minutes, this film captures longer speeches, and more moments throughout your big day. Show it off to guests that attended at the next get together!

The Feature Film

The last type of film we offer is the Feature Film. The Feature includes comprehensive documentary of the entire day featuring live audio of the ceremony, reception, and entertainment as well as other key events of the day. The feature film is meant for memories and to preserve your legacy. This ninety minute film captures a broad range of your wedding day from start to finish. You will be able to relive speeches from family and friends, your vows, and other great moments. The feature film can be passed down for generations to come, or simply just to relive your most special day. As one of Allure Films’ fundamental elements, we offer this film with every tier of our coverage options.

Coverage Options

The Feature

The Feature coverage comes with one film maker for six to eight hours, ceremony and reception coverage, a feature length 90 minute film, a three to five minute preview film, and one thumb drive with the films. This coverage is designed to capture the essence of your day with the addition of a preview film. As our most basic package, this will give you the standard wedding film from one of our expert videographers and editors, but will not be as detailed as our other packages.

Documentary

A step above the Feature, our Documentary coverage option adds a solid eight hours of coverage and an additional camera at the ceremony. The additional camera is great for capturing different angles of the ceremony. You will be able to catch different reactions of your guests and get a different perspective on the events that unfold. Documentary Coverage also includes a recap and a social film.

Videography Coverage

Two different angles from the same ceremony, provided by an extra camera.

Journalist and Journalist Plus

The Journalist Coverage is our most popular option among couples. A key feature of the Journalist option is dual pre-ceremony coverage. This means our day starts with yours. We film what happens behind the scenes before everyone gathers together. Some of the most touching moments happen during this time. Our team has captured brides and grooms unwrapping emotional gifts, heartfelt moments with the wedding party, and first looks from their parents. This shows the emotion that starts before you reach the end of the aisle. Check out the clip below for a look at a visit from a furry friend before the ceremony. The groom attached a note to their dog and the dog delivered it to his bride to be!

https://vimeo.com/516297007

 

For even more coverage you can opt for our Journalist Plus package. This option adds a second filmmaker to your day and extends coverage length to ten hours. This option is great for couples with a large guest list, around 250 and above. A second film maker can gather twice as many angles and events.  Two filmmakers ensure full pre-ceremony coverage of both halves of the wedding party.

Producer

Our most inclusive videography coverage option is the Producer package. The Producer includes three film makers and a sound engineer. This option is for longer weddings that require extra coverage. We designed this option for those with large-scale weddings to ensure you receive an adequate amount of coverage at our highest quality.

Our coverage options all come with a variety of add-ons including Zoom services, blu-ray discs, rehearsal dinner coverage, and more.

The First Look

Before the day began, Rachel and Shawn shared their first look upon Appleford’s grounds. Their humorous and emotional meeting summed up the kind of couple that they are. At first, Shawn did not get close enough to Rachel so did not see him, prompting him to give a tug on her veil. A bit stunned, Rachel turned and laughed with her soon to be husband. They were a mixture of laughter and tears as they saw each other for the first time on their wedding day. Shawn remarked, “You look beautiful” as he wiped a tear from his eye. After their heartfelt meeting, Rachel and Shawn continued on to pose for photos around the estate.

Photo Opportunities

We were joined by our friends from Philip Gabriel Photography on this special day. Working alongside them, our Allure Films captured Rachel and Shawn’s shared moments. All across Appleford Estate there are a multitude of picturesque backdrops. These made for gorgeous wedding photos for the two. In every photo, their smiles were so genuine, it was like they were not even aware that we were there to get videos and photos. The two walked hand in hand through the gardens and ponds to make their way to the ceremony location.

Rachel and Shawn shared their intimate ceremony in the grass at the estate. Large, overhanging trees filled the area’s background.  Luckily, they had beautiful weather for their outdoor ceremony and the sun shone through the trees through it. White flower petals lined the aisle and led up to a beautifully decorated chuppah. Rachel and Shawn shared personalized vows and a sand mixing tradition for their ceremony. During their vows, there was a mix of humor and sincerity. Shawn choked up throughout his vows, while referencing inside jokes between the two. He also vowed “If you ever lose your sparkle, I will shine you up to your former luster, and if you ever get lost, I will guide you home because home is where you are, and home is where I want to be.” After the vows, they celebrated with a unity ceremony. This ceremony has the two combine different colored sand into a container, representing their lives being joined together in union. When pronounced, their guests cheered wildly for the two newlyweds.

Appleford Estate Wedding

The Reception

The reception was held on Appleford Estate’s outdoor terrace. Guests danced and dined inside and out of the stone terrace. Family and friends gave speeches about Rachel and Shawn individually and their relationship together. Each speech developed one theme, however, Rachel and Shawn are each other’s best match. The two continued to celebrate throughout the night with more laughter, dancing, and smiles. We were so grateful that our Allure Films could help capture such a magical day. Rachel and Shawn, we hope you two share many more days of laughter together. Mazel tov!

Ellis Preserve Wedding Day

Christine and Frank did not expect their wedding day to end up in the middle of a pandemic. With the help of their family and friends, however, they were able to pull together a beautiful day. Their day started with a Church ceremony and continued to an outdoor wedding reception at Ellis Preserve. Their reception was held outdoor underneath a tent on the Ellis Preserve’s grounds. With the tables beautifully decorate, you could hardly tell it was outside! Through many changes, Christine and Frank were still able to hold the wedding of their dreams.

Before the CeremonyFirst Look Father of the Bride

Christine and Frank got ready with the wedding party. Christine’s bridesmaids helped her get ready, and once she donned her gown, Christine’s father came in to see her for the first time. He smiled and said “oh my heavens, you look gorgeous!” Her father was especially happy to have Frank as part of the family as “the son he never had.”

Church Wedding

The wedding party then made their way to a church ceremony, where the rest of the family and friends gathered together.

Due to mandates because of the pandemic, Christine and Frank’s reception was held outside in a tent along the grounds. Finley Catering did an amazing job transforming a tent into a beautiful wedding reception. Elegant drapery hung down from the tent’s ceiling, adding a bit of extra decore to the area.

They were set up by friends for a date party, and the rest is history. During their vows, both of them spoke about how special that night was to them. It was their first day together that would eventually lead them to their wedding.  Their vows were heartfelt and mixed with some inside jokes, which really encapsulated their relationship.

When exchanging their vows, Lauren and Brett stood beneath a lovely decorated chuppah created by Jamie Rothstein. As they wrapped up, Brett’s voice began to waver as his emotions got the best of him. It was a lovely ceremony overall and happy tears were shed from family and friend. From one long ago magical night, to their wedding day, Lauren and Brett took their next step in life together as husband and wife.

Perhaps the next happiest person aside from the bride and groom was Lauren’s father. Before the ceremony, he saw his daughter for the first time in her wedding dress. He beamed at her and exclaimed, “you look gorgeous! Wow!” Throughout the day, he continually smiled and looked upon his daughter with joy. During the reception, he spoke of how happy Lauren makes everyone around her, and how grateful he is to now have Brett as part of the family. It is easy to tell where Lauren gets her friendly and loving personality from.

Our team from Allure Films worked alongside Baiada Photography to capture all of these special moments at The Logan. The party picked up with live music from EBE Talent’s London Bridge. There was so much energy and excitement in the room for the reception. The two were lifted high during the Hora as their party guests held them and danced around them.  During the speeches, everyone that spoke looked upon Lauren and Brett with admiration. The dancing and speeches kept the night energetic and full of love and laughter.

We noticed a common theme of all of the speeches throughout each. Over again, Lauren and Brett are referred to not only as each other’s partners, but their best friends. That is such an important part of a relationship. A great romance with a solid friendship as a foundation makes the best partnership in life. Lauren and Brett are a team built on communication, trust, and friendship.

We are so happy to be a part of Lauren and Brett’s special day. It was a wonderful experience to watch you two come together. We hope you two had a great first year together as husband and wife, and look upon your wedding film for years to come. Mazle tov! Happy anniversary!
