Rebecca and Jared were all smiles, all day at their elegant spring wedding in Center City Philadelphia. They chose the Rittenhouse Hotel, a stylish and flexible venue, for their special day. With several elegant spaces to choose from, the hotel can be outfitted to match any vision.

This lovely couple decorated with florals and fabrics to achieve their springtime vision. After the ceremony, guests didn’t have to travel far. They enjoyed a fun evening of dinner and dancing right at the Rittenhouse!

What Are The Top Wedding Photo Locations In Philadelphia?

Apr

2017

Allure Films has had the privilege of attending countless weddings throughout Philadelphia. We’re thrilled that so many couples have chosen us to document their special day!

One of the first questions that most of our couples ask during their initial wedding video consultation is, “What are the most popular wedding photo locations in Philadelphia?” It’s an excellent question to ask, since Philly is full of incredible places to steal kisses with your partner for life!

Fortunately, some of the top wedding photo locations are situated right in the heart of the city. Take a look at this clip from a summer wedding where we were able to capture stunning images of the happy couple in Rittenhouse Square, at the Art Museum, on Broad Street, and in front of the Academy of Music:

The Art Museum is arguably one of the most iconic landmarks in Philadelphia. Most people recognize it thanks to the infamous “Rocky pose,” but hidden within its nooks and crannies are countless stunning photo opportunities other than just throwing two fists in the air!

With City Hall in the background and a conveniently located median, most of our couples request a stop along Broad Street. It’s the perfect place for a romantic dip-and-kiss photo; despite the city traffic crawling by on either side, the world seems to stand still and focus on the two of you.

Rittenhouse Square is a tree-lover’s paradise. Flowering bushes are shaded by centuries-old branches. Fountains and sculptures pop out of hidden corners. You and your new Mr. or Mrs. will feel like you’re lost in a never-ending garden, as the city noise seems to fade away.

Philadelphia has such a rich history. Many street lamps are still lit by gas-fueled flames, like the Academy of Music. Built 160 years ago, this stunning structure has seen performances by some of the most infamous musicians and performers of its time. Add a bit of your own story to its history by snapping a few photos in front of its façade.

No matter where you choose to say “I Do,” you can trust Allure Films to find plenty of stunning spots along the way to snap a few photos and record a stolen kiss or two. We’re here to help you make your day as magical as possible, and to capture every moment on film!

They say that your wedding day passes by in “the blink of an eye.”

What if you could have that “blink of an eye” captured on film to cherish forever? With a wedding time lapse video, you can!

Allure Films always loves setting up a couple of cameras throughout ceremony and reception spaces when we’re filming weddings. These cameras are set to record the entire day, including setup and your guests entering, leaving, and partying the night away!

This is the perfect way to see all of the work involved in making your dream wedding come true. You can take in all of the behind-the-scenes moments, and watch your entire day unfold before your eyes in a way you never thought you could.

Take a look at this wedding time lapse video taken in Newtown Square at the stunning Ellis Preserve:

It’s such an amazing feeling to watch your venue transform into the romantic space where you and your spouse said “I Do.” Commemorate that incredible day by asking Allure Films to add a time lapse into your wedding video. Your friends and family will be quite impressed!

2017

Winter brides, take note! Allure Films captured plenty of winter wedding inspiration while filming Francesca and Brian’s stunning Union League wedding video.

The entire day was filled with laughter and plenty of fun. Even the first look gave us a giggle, with Brian’s adorable backwards wave as he heard his bride walking toward him.

Brian and Francesca’s wedding party was a blast to be around, and we captured plenty of smiles and laughs in our “getting ready” footage. Francesca looked stunning in her wedding dress, with a fur coat to keep her warm and snug in Philadelphia’s frigid winter temperatures.

The wedding took place at the Union League. Located in the heart of Philadelphia, it is one of our favorite places to film. There are so many beautiful rooms, soaring ceilings, jaw-dropping chandeliers, and impressive architectural accents that make every angle amazing. Documenting a romantic kiss on the iconic twin staircases is a must, and as always, we were not disappointed by the outcome of that perfect shot!

As if the venue wasn’t stunning enough, Carl Allen Floral Designs took everything up a notch. Between their stunning arrangements, the upbeat live music from EBE’s Dreamtime, and the fabulous bride and groom, the wedding was truly picture perfect!

Enjoy this short preview from Francesca and Brian’s big day:
