A Colorful Wedding at the Ellis Preserve

ellis preserveChristine and Bill celebrated a colorful outdoor wedding at Ellis Preserve. From the light pink underlay of Christine’s dress to her vibrant flower arrangements, everything was bright and cheerful. The brightest part of the day, however, was Christine and Bill’s love for each other.

After a heartfelt ceremony outside, Christine danced back down the aisle with her new husband to continue their day inside the Ballroom at Ellis Preserve. They had a grand entrance and started their reception with great entertainment from Silver Sound DJ’s. Christine, Bill, and all of their guests danced the night away inside and enjoyed great cuisine from Finley Catering.

It was easy for our Allure Films team to capture this day on film because Christine and Bill fit so effortlessly together. Finley Catering’s venue also creates the perfect wedding backdrop for film. Our friends from Campli Photography joined us and took beautiful photos throughout the day.

Congratulations Christine and Bill! We wish you many more exciting days together!

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!

Congratulations Stephanie and Zachary! We wish you many more happy days together.
