Tara and Anthony’s Elegant Wedding Day

Rittenhouse Hotel ReceptionAfter years of knowing each other, Tara and Anthony’s connection turned into everlasting love. 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.

After the ceremony, the newlyweds and guests went to the Rittenhouse Hotel for a reception. The beautiful Rittenhouse Hotel gave the couple indoor and outdoor accommodations for their stylish reception. After the couple’s breathtaking first dance,  Faze 4’s True Blue  entertained guests for the rest of the night.

Our Allure Films team was lucky enough to be a part of such an elegant day. We were honored to film these moments for Tara and Anthony. Our friends from Baida Photography also joined us by photographing all of the special moments.

Congratulations Tara and Anthony! We wish for many happy years to come.

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.

EBE’s band Dreamtime had everyone busting a move on the dance floor, including the youngest members of the bridal party: the adorable flower girls and ring bearer. Aside from dancing the night away, everyone was treated to a delicious meal and touching speeches dedicated to the couple of the day.

Amy & Scott, we wish both the absolute best and a lifetime of happiness together!

Love Fills The Air – Both Indoors And Out – At Meghan & Alexander’s Wedding

February 13, 2018 Christian, Overbrook Country Club

As Meghan and Alexander finished up their final undergraduate semester at the University of Notre Dame, little did they know they were about to earn a degree…and a partner for life! Meghan and Alex were married in a Catholic ceremony surrounded by their friends and family at Our Mother of Good Counsel.

Allure Films began our day of filming this joyous occasion with the bridal party prep. When Meghan had to make the decision about who she would ask to be her matron-of-honor, the answer was clearly a no-brainer: it would be both of her sisters, Mary Lauren and Katie.

Do these ladies look familiar? That’s because Allure Films had the honor of filming Mary Lauren and her husband Derek’s wedding a few short months ago!

Now, on Meghan and Alex’s big day, we followed the couple from there ceremony to a reception at the Overbrook Golf Club, where it is always great to work with Jimmy and his amazing team. No Overbrook Golf Club wedding is complete without the bride and groom getting outdoor photographs together. M2 Photography took beautiful photographs of the happy newlyweds on the club’s beautiful landscape.

The reception was a fun time filled with speeches made by the bride and groom’s immediate family members along with dancing to BVT Live’s incredible Big Ric Rising Band. Alexander and his groomsmen even treated the guests with a song performance!

Congratulations Meghan and Alexander! May your joining together bring you more joy than you can imagine!

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!

A Night Full Of Wow’s At Jeff & Maureen’s Water Works Wedding

It’s hard to sum up Jeff and Maureen’s wedding day in one particular word but “breathtaking” seems like an excellent choice!

Jeff and Maureen’s wedding ceremony and reception took place at Water Works, a National Historical Landmark situated between Boathouse Row and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. When it comes to offering phenomenal views of the city, Water Works is a prime location.

The bride and groom exchanged vows before their friends and family in the historic venue’s Grand Pavilion, an outdoor space of neoclassical architecture that offers fantastic panoramic views of the surrounding river and Center City skyline. While Jeff and Maureen’s heartfelt vows captivated everyone’s attention, their pups nearly stole the show sporting their own best tux and gown as they made their way down the aisle.

The reception was held in the Main Ballroom where the floral arrangements by Beautiful Blooms provided the perfect touch to the room’s stunning interior of crystal chandeliers and natural hardwood floors. Allure Films enjoyed capturing Jeff and Maureen’s reaction to their beautiful reception decorations.

One of the the many highlights of the reception was the fireworks display that served as the perfect grand finale to the happy couple’s special day.

Congratulations Jeff and Maureen, here’s to a lifetime of making beautiful memories together!
