We recently had the honor to document a very special wedding for our friends Leah and Matthew. Leah is a former NACE Philly president and a good friend, which made filming her wedding all the more special. We were so lucky to capture all of her big moments with Matthew at the Cira Centre Atrium. We care about Leah like family, so it was great to see how much love and support her actual family gave her and Matthew at their wedding. There were so many heartfelt speeches about their love and care for each other, and you could truly feel the love in the room.
Leah and Matthew make an absolutely great couple and we were so happy to help out on their big day. We also worked with a few of our other industry friends for this special day. Garces Events created this stunning wedding venue and also provided excellent catering. Our talented friends from Philip Gabriel Photography worked alongside us as well to take photographs for Leah and Matthew. At the reception, Jon Ardito Entertainment kept the dancefloor packed all night. Everyone from guests to wedding professionals had a great time helping Leah and Matthew celebrate their special day.
Congratulations again to our friends Leah and Matthew! We are so happy for you and wish you all the best. Thank you for involving our Allure Films team in your big day!
At Water Works by Cescaphe, Jessica and Thomas truly had a wedding day to remember in Philadelphia. They started out getting ready at the Logan Hotel, where Thomas saw his bride-to-be for the first time. Their first look was so touching to film, as Thomas’ looked at Jessica with such awe. From there, they travelled to the Cathedral of Sts. Peter and Paul for their ceremony. After exchanging their vows, the two headed out to their reception at Cescaphe’s Water Works.
Water Works is a stunning venue on its own, but was brought to life even more by Beautiful Blooms. We worked alongside Ryan Eda Photography to capture every piece of this amazing day. Underneath the tented area, string lights illuminated the reception. The night was lit up even more by all of the love and excitement from Jessica and Thomas’ friends and family.
Cescaphe catered this wonderful event and served up some fiery dishes. Jessica, Thomas, and all of their guests dined and danced the rest of their night away at Water Works. Our Allure Films team was so lucky to film such a beautiful wedding.
Congratulations Jessica and Thomas! We wish you many more magical days together!
We’re fighting through the cold weather by looking back through some warmed outdoor weddings from this past year. Connor and Mia celebrated their ceremony and reception at scenic Ellis Preserve. They were blessed with plenty of sunshine and warmth on their big day. Out in the grassy field by Ellis, family and friends gathered to watch the two come together as one.
As the night went on, the sun set and Ellis Preserve became lit up in purple lights. Sparks literally flew outside as Connor and Mia’s guests surrounded them with sparklers. Inside the reception, Connor and Mia shared a perfect first dance together with music from EBE Talent. We also worked with Grace & Ardor Co. who photographed for the couple.
We were so honored to film such a gorgeous wedding at this wonderful Finley venue. Congratulations again to Connor and Mia! We wish you many more sunny days together.
Couple Courtney and Mark married at Saint Patrick’s Church and celebrated their reception at the Union League of Philadelphia. Their wedding day embodied a classic elegance in historic Philadelphia. From poses in front of City Hall, to riding around in a classic car, Courtney and Mark got to their reception in style.
Throughout the night family members and friends gave heartfelt speeches about the couple’s love for each other. Courtney’s sister raved about how happy she is that Mark is finally a part of the family. Even after so many weddings, it’s always heartwarming to see so much love from so many people in one room.
The night continued with music from the Uptown Band, who gave great entertainment to everyone. We also worked alongside Sarah DiCicco who photographed for the couple. Our Allure Films team loved filming such a classic and romantic wedding day for Courtney and Mark at the Union League and in historic Philly.
Congratulations to the happy couple! We wish you more days filled with happiness, laughter, and love.
Weddings at the Please Touch Museum always feel extra special. We were happy to to be a part of Lakeisha and Stephen’s beautiful wedding day at this venue. Emily Wren Photography captured photos of the couple in all different, creative parts of the venue. Our personal favorite photo op is in front of the lit up, spinning merry go round.
We loved being able to capture every moment from the beginning to the end of this special day. Lakeisha was so excited before her and Stephen’s first look that she even did a little dance. You could truly see the excitement and happiness between these two. After all, they are high school sweethearts! This wedding has been a long time coming.
During the reception, EBE Talent’s Amsterdam entertained everyone. They did a great job and kept everyone out on the dancefloor to celebrate. Everyone had a fantastic time celebrating with the bride and groom throughout the night. We were so honored to capture such a meaningful day for the two. Congratulations Lakeisha and Stephen!
Rebecca and Adam had a beautiful wedding in Center City Philadelphia at the Rittenhouse. You could feel the love in the air from their first look. Adam was blown away by his beautiful bride-to-be. Baiada Photography took gorgeous photos in different picture-esque places around the venue. They happily posed on the spiral staircase in front of the Rittenhouse and even in the middle of Broad Street.
Rebecca and Adam truly celebrated their Philadelphia pride during their reception. The top two layers of their wedding cake had the Philadelphia Eagles logo on it and the 76ers logo! The next layer showed the Philadelphia Love Park sign, the liberty bell, and of course, some Philly pretzels.
Friends and family had a great time at the wonderfully decorate reception, thanks to Carl Alan Floral Design. Guests also danced along to the sounds from EBE Talent’s Rio band. Our Allure Films team had such a great time capturing this great wedding for Rebecca and Adam. We wish them all the best. Mazel Tov!

Keep an eye out on our social media for some great throwback clips from their weddings this week! Also special thanks to all of the great professionals we worked with that weekend! #weddingwednesday.
Weddings at the Franklin Institute always feel magical. Stephanie and and Zach shared their big days “under the stars” at this unique venue. Although their wedding and reception took place at the institute, the two started their big day at the Logan Hotel to get ready.
After getting ready, the two met for a “first look” moment. We love capturing these beautiful first moments between couples on their wedding days. Zachary said to his future wife, “You look beautiful, stunning,” as Stephanie held back tears.
Stephanie and Zachary then made their way into the Franklin Institute where they had their ceremony at the Planetarium. Surrounded by the moon, stars, friends, and family, Stephanie and Zachary exchanged their vows. It was a beautiful ceremony and the Allure Films team was so happy to be a part of such a great day!
Samantha and Spencer had a lovely wedding at the Rittenhouse. The two were full of smiles as they celebrated their special day. Samantha and Spencer have the perfect love story as high school sweethearts. Since meeting, they have been “two peas in a pod” and their love for each other brought them to their wedding day.
Samantha and Spencer’s friends have watched their relationship blossom form their high school days. During their speeches, they recounted how they were able to watch the couple’s love story unfold, and always knew that this day would come.
The good times kept rolling into the reception as Empire Sound entertained. Everyone got out on the dance floor and celebrated with the newlyweds. The Rittenhouse, of course, was put together perfectly with the help of Evantine Design. Our Allure Films team was grateful to film such a heartwarming and exciting day. Our friends from Philip Gabriel Photography also worked alongside us to take great photos for the bride and groom.
Congratulations Samantha and Spencer! We wish you many more smile-filled days.
