Philadelphia Wedding Videographer

Rittenhouse hotel wedding

On June 26th, Allure Films had the honor to be Samantha and Spencer’s wedding videographer in Philadelphia.  

We are celebrating their one year wedding anniversary!  We are so glad our team filmed their beautiful wedding day and captured so many heartwarming moments. They held the wedding at the lavish beautiful  Rittenhouse Hotel that overlooks  Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  Rittenhouse Hotel is rated Four-Star because their team caters to every aspect of your wedding to make it an elegant and memorable event.

Samantha and Spencer were such a great couple to work with, and we are so glad our Allure Films team was able to record their special day. They shared their endearing story with us, as high school sweethearts, Samantha and Spencer have grown up together and learned to love each other more each year as time went on. Your spouse should be both your love and your best friend. Samantha and Spencer are both of these to each other, making them an amazing couple and such an honor to meet them.

While they exchanged vows, family and friends looked on with love & support. Beautiful flowers hung overhead on the chuppah.  A chuppah holds a beautiful tradition and symbolism. It represents the Jewish home with its four posts and its cloth canopy.  The gorgeous arrangement was from Evantine Design. When the two exchanged their first kiss as husband and wife, their guests erupted with applause.

During the reception, more of Evantine Design’s arrangements decorated the beautiful venue. Everyone mingled and hugged the bride and groom as they made their entrance. Our friends from Philip Gabriel Photography accompanied us and took great photos of the special day. The crowd of guests kept their feet moving to music from Empire Sound throughout the night. There was so much excitement, especially when the couple was lifted in the air during the hora. The Hora, or chair dance typically danced to the music of the traditional Jewish song. The bride and groom are often hoisted into the air on chairs while their friends and family dance in a circle around them. Such an awesome tradition!  

Their families welcomed each other with open arms and raved about having new family members that they are so grateful for.  Many people commented that they were their favorite couple. The reception was filled with hugs, heartfelt speeches, and of course, love.  You could feel the love in the air!

We had such a great time filming Samantha and Spencer’s wedding day for them. We are happy to know that they can always relive that day through their wedding film. These are special moments that capture the spirit of the day.  Congratulations again Samantha and Spencer! We know you have many more great memories to come. Happy anniversary!

November 20, 2018 Jewish, Wedding Films

Wedding Day at The GroveDanielle and Sam have a connection that spans across state lines. When the two originally met, they lived hours away from each other, but that did not stop their growing feelings for each other. The two grew in their faith together and their love led them to their wedding day at The Grove in Cedar Grove, New Jersey.

Before the ceremony, Danielle and Sam each read a heartfelt letter from the other. Each person highlighted just how much the other meant to them, and knew they had a bright future together. Their two year relationship brought them to, as Danielle said in her letter, “officially the best day ever.” As they stood at the chuppah in ceremony, Danielle and Sam started their new lives together.

After the ceremony, the couple ecstatically celebrated with their family. Our team at Allure Films was lucky to capture all of their dancing, singing, and celebrating. Throughout the entire night, the couple could not stop smiling. Our friends from Philip Gabriel Photography also photographed the day’s festivities. We were honored to be a part of this wonderful occasion.

Mazel Tov Danielle and Sam! We wish you many more happy years together.

Harlee and Ryan’s Hotel Monaco Wedding

Hotel Monaco WeddingWhile weddings are about joining a couple as one, they are also about joining two families together. Harlee and Ryan had an elegant ceremony at the Hotel Monaco and celebrated with family and friends at their reception at the Cescaphe Ballroom.

At the hotel, the couple exchanged vows in one of the Hotel Monaco’s beautiful ballrooms. With the elegant chandeliers and architecture, it is a wonderful place for a wedding.

After filming the wedding, our crew at Allure Films captured speeches from the bride’s father and brother during the reception. Her brother knew Ryan was right for Harlee when Ryan became her number one protector over him. Though it was a hard role to pass on, her brother knew Ryan was the right one for it.

During Harlee’s father’s speech, he toasted to the foundations of marriage: family, friends, fortune, and fertility. Not only were the two families combined that day, but they wanted to grow as well.

We are always grateful to work a wedding with our partners. Our partners at Baida Photography helped photograph the happy couple’s big day. EBE’s Dreamtime also entertained the crowd and had the newly joined families dancing through the night. We were all grateful to help the newlyweds celebrate their special day.

Mazel tov Harlee and Ryan! We wish you endless memories together.
