A Backyard Zoom Wedding for Jessica and Sandy

October 28, 2020 Ceremony Locations

After months of planning and re-planning, Jessica and Sandy decided on a backyard zoom wedding. Due to the recent changes with COVID-19, the pair had to change their wedding date and location three times. Their passion for planning their wedding pushed them forward though. Nothing would stop these two from tying the knot. At the end of their planning, they had their ceremony in a relative’s backyard. It ended up being just as special for the two, even if their original plans had changed so much.

The front and back yard were decorate in autumn themed decor. Pumpkins and hay bales were artfullyplaced. The fall wedding details pulled the venue together for a beautiful set up. They even had a station for guests to grab covers in case of chilly weather with a sign stating “To have and to hold, in case you get cold.”

The venue was covered in clever decorations like this. They also included a record player with a sign saying, “For the record, can we have your autograph?” This was for  guests to sign notes to the happy couple. Even the pool had floating letters in it for Jessica and Sandy!

 

For guests who could not attend, our team put together a zoom wedding video set up. Jessica and Sandy were able to connect with their guests via the video. It was a touching scene to watch them celebrate with people near and far. Those joining in were able to give their well wishes to the couple, and see great moments including their first dance.

Madeline and Zack’s Wedding Day in Villanova

February 7, 2019 Villanova Chapel, Wedding Films

VillanovaMarriage is about building a family together, but before that, it is about joining two families as one. Madeline and Zack knew this, and knew that their relationship would grow even more with their families’ support.

Zack’s brother said he thought that their family would scare off Madeline, but instead she fit right in. From the start, she bonded with Zack’s brother and quickly became part of the family. On the other side, Madeline’s protective sister quickly saw how much Zack cared for Madeline, and gave her approval as well. After much family bonding, Madeline and Zack tied the knot at St. Thomas of Villanova Parish. After a traditional ceremony, everyone relocated to The Inn at Villanova for the reception.

As the two entered the reception, Zack excitedly motioned to Madeline, showing off his wife. After their entrance, the couple joined together in a fun choreographed first dance. Madeline and Zack found happiness in each other, and their celebration showcased the love they created. Our Allure Films team was honored to film this joy for them so that they can relive it year after year. We were also joined by our talented friends from Morby Photography on this special day. BVTLive’s Jellyroll band set the tone for the reception with their entertaining performance as well.

Congratulations Madeline and Zack! We wish you joy in every day together.

Even when they were apart for a little while, Tara still held a place in Anthony’s heart. After finding an old mixtape she made for him years before, he realized his feelings never changed. Inspired by the music, Anthony knew this sign meant he should be with Tara. After reconnecting, the two tied the knot in St. Thomas of Villanova to start their future together.

Heating Things Up At Amy & Scott’s Wonderful Winter Wedding

Amy & Scott Crystal Tea Room Wedding VideoAs we enter into the summer wedding season, it is important that we do not forget some of the beautiful weddings of couples who were married in the winter. Amy & Scott’s romantic winter wedding is definitely one for the books, and Allure Films had a blast capturing every second of it!

The two were married in a traditional Catholic ceremony held at St. John the Evangelist before heading over to the reception that followed at Finley Catering’s Crystal Tea Room. Evantine Design created all the beautiful floral arrangements and décor seen throughout the ballroom, which perfectly complemented the stunning chandeliers and soaring ceilings. As our crew was filming throughout the day, Alison Conklin was also there to photograph all the incredible moments and scenery from beginning to end.

From Sweethearts To Husband & Wife!

Morgan and Ben tied the knot in front of their friends and loved ones, who filled every pew of the stunning The National Shrine of Saint Rita’s of Cascia. It’s been a while since we’ve been to this gorgeous chapel, and it proved to be the perfect setting for the happy couple to exchange their vows.

After saying “I Do”, Morgan and Ben led their guests up Broad Street to the Grand Ballroom of downtown Philadelphia’s iconic and historic Hyatt at the Bellevue. The Hyatt at the Bellevue is conveniently located in the heart of Philadelphia, on a section of Broad known as the Avenue of the Arts. Its convenient location allows for incredible photo and video opportunities, and Allure Films knows of several places nearby to get the perfect shot in front of some of the city’s most well-known landmarks.

Lamsback Floral Decorators were the designers of the beautiful ivory floral arrangements that were the perfect compliment to the couple’s classic black and white style wedding. The couple’s wedding photographer, Philip Gabriel Photography, was able to get some fun and romantic shots of both the whole wedding party and just the couple themselves. The Eddie Bruce Orchestra provided the musical entertainment that had everyone dancing the night away!

Congratulations Morgan and Ben, and here’s to continuing to build a beautiful life together!

Meggie & Gordon Return To Their Hometown To Say “I Do”

We love it when we’re asked to film military weddings!

Recently, Meggie and Gordon – members of the US Navy – returned to Meggie’s hometown to exchange their vows. As members of the US Navy, they had spent plenty of time traveling the world, and were more than happy to finally celebrate their special day with all of their family and friends at home in Malvern.

Allure Films and Campli Photography were there to document the couple’s special day from beginning to end. After Meggie got ready in her childhood home, she walked down the aisle of St. Patrick’s Church. She was married to Gordon in a traditional ceremony, which was just as beautiful as the bride was!

Following the ceremony, a reception was held at the stunning Aronimink Golf Club, which was finely decorated with floral arrangements and centerpieces designed by Tish Long. The bride and groom arrived to the party in style, wearing his-and-hers monogrammed loafers as Meggie rocked her US Navy t-shirt with her new last name on the back.

One of the best moments we captured was on the dance floor, when Meggie showed off her dancing skills by doing the classic “worm” in her wedding dress! We also loved the looks on the bride and groom’s faces as they cut their wedding cake with the ceremonial sword, a true military wedding tradition.

Meggie & Gordon, here’s to a beautiful future together as husband and wife!

Pure Romance At A Logan Philadelphia Wedding

In 2009, Allure Films had the honor of capturing Lauren Briglia and Pete Pryzbylkowski’s wedding day on video.

In the summer of 2017, we were beyond thrilled to have reconnected with this amazing family and document Lauren’s sister, Alison, on her special day marrying the love of her life, Jeremy.

Everything about Alison and Jeremy’s wedding represented timeless style and pure romance. The official wedding ceremony was held at the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter & Paul, where the aisles of the Roman Catholic church were filled with friends and loved ones seated amongst beautiful ivory floral décor created by Evantine Design.

The reception took place at The Logan in their Grand Ballroom. The amazing floral decorations illuminated by countless candles created a spectacular backdrop for this wonderful celebration. Susan Stripling was there to photograph not only the amazing décor, but also to get group shots of the bridal party at the Rodin Museum in the courtyard around the whispering waterfall and fountain.

The bridal party and guests were able to dance the night away in style to the music of the BVTLive!’s Jellyroll band. Jellyroll kept everyone on their feet by performing a wide range of music styles from today’s top pop hits to Motown. There was definitely a lot of love and fun in the air on Jeremy and Alison’s day. Not only will the happy couple have great memories to look back on, but they’ll have the whole day on film where they will be able to watch themselves recite their vows to each other, and re-watch the touching speeches made by loved ones in celebration of their union.

Congratulations, Alison and Jeremy, and thanks for letting us continue to be a part of your family’s special days! We look forward to capturing touching moments with you for years to come.

Victoria & Thomas’ Picture Perfect Wedding In Philadelphia

Nothing beats a wedding in Philadelphia. Take one look at these photos and you’ll see why!

Victoria and Thomas shared a picture perfect wedding day as they visited some of the most noteworthy spots throughout Center City. There were SO many special, and scenic moments to document, which is why we are thrilled our friends from Philip Gabriel Photography were also a part of this day!

The fun started early in the morning, as the bride and groom prepared for the ceremony. It was wonderful to watch Victoria’s dad see her in her gown for the first time!

The whole morning was filled with smiles, from Victoria’s reaction to her bouquet, to Thomas enjoying a quiet moment reading a note from his future wife and receiving a beautiful new watch. These are truly once in a lifetime moments that we know Victoria and Thomas will not soon forget, especially since the Allure Films team was there to document the whole thing.

Victoria & Thomas' Picture Perfect Wedding in Philadelphia

Victoria and Thomas said their “I do’s” at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Rittenhouse Square. The Rolls Royce that brought Victoria to the cathedral was gorgeous, but not nearly as stunning as the blushing bride!

After the ceremony, the couple made their way to the Hyatt At The Bellevue, stopping along the way to vist some of the city’s most historic spots and romantic gardens.

Everyone’s jaws dropped when we first set foot in the Hyatt. With stunning décor by Lamsback Floral Decorators, the backdrop for the rest of Victoria and Thomas’ evening was truly a sight for all to see.

The evening was spent enjoying fine food, a fantastic couple, and incredible music by one of our favorite bands, as our friends from Jellyroll did a phenomenal job keeping all of the guests on their feet. What’s not to love?
