You Have To See This Breathtaking Wedding At The Ballroom At The Ben!

September 7, 2016 Ballroom at the Ben, Blog, Jewish

What a wonderful day this turned out to be!

Allure Films was dazzled by Amy and Jason’s Ballroom At The Ben wedding. Carl Alan Floral Design did an amazing job transforming this already beautiful space into a jaw dropping background fit for royalty…or for a couple as lovely as Mr. and Mrs. Weiss!

We love shooting at this venue because of its sky-high ceilings, stunning chandeliers, and European atmosphere. You may recognize the venue from the final scenes of “Silver Linings Playbook,” but we’ll forever remember it as the place where Amy and Jason said “I Do!”

After the happy couple’s touching First Look, they stepped into the ballroom to exchange their vows. There was hardly a dry eye in the building as they expressed their love for each other under the chuppah.

While guests enjoyed cocktail hour, the ballroom was magically rearranged into the reception hall, where everyone enjoyed delicious food and plenty of dancing all night long.

Enjoy this sneak peek into Amy and Jason’s big day, and watch the Ballroom At The Ben transform before your very eyes:

We were so thrilled to be a part of such a great wedding! Congrats Amy and Jason!

Love & Romance At This Stunning Moulin Philadelphia Wedding!

If you’re looking for a jaw-dropping location to host your dream wedding, look no further than Moulin at Sherman Mills!

This venue by Brûlée Catering was the perfect place for Laura and Alec’s June wedding. Nestled in East Falls just a stone’s throw away from Center City Philadelphia, had everything the bride and groom could have hoped for, and more!

After capturing some very touching footage of their “first look” in the heart of the city, Allure Films traveled with the couple to Sherman Mills, where Evantine Design had draped Moulin’s towering ceilings in hanging greenery and perfect summer colors. Laura and Alec exchanged vows under a chuppah that appeared to be raining flowers on the couple. How romantic!

The new Mr. and Mrs. led their guests into the reception hall, where they dined on Brûlée Catering’s award-winning fare and danced the night away to live music by Simply Irresistible.

If you’ve always dreamed of a romantic wedding down the shore with an equally stunning indoor option, look no further than the Reeds at Shelter Haven!

Love, Laughter, And Plenty Of Patriotism At A Union League Wedding

What an overwhelming day filled with love!

From the love for their country, to the love for their city, to their undying love for each other, Christine and Evan’s wedding day was one of the most romantic events that Allure Films has had the privilege of filming.

As members of the United States Air Force, the beautiful couple carried a patriotic theme throughout their wedding. Red, white, and blue dresses, flowers, and even the wedding cake kept everyone feeling festive and the venues looking incredible.

Christine and Evan exchanged their vows at the stunning Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter & Paul, right at the heart of Philadelphia. Afterward, they were whisked away to some of Center City’s most amazing locations, where our friends at Philip Gabriel Photography snapped photographs of the entire wedding party having fun.

After sneaking several kisses underneath the new “AMOR” sign at the top of the Art Museum Steps, the newlyweds moved the party to The Union League of Philadelphia. With more than 150 years of history supporting the United States military, it was the perfect place for Captain and Mrs. Farren to celebrate their marriage.

From the lively music by EBE Dreamtime to Evan’s one-of-a-kind Eagles party shirt hidden under his uniform jacket, the fun-filled reception was definitely one for the books.

Congratulations to the newlyweds! Thanks for letting the Allure team be a party of your special day! Enjoy this preview from Christine and Evan’s Union League wedding:

A Dazzling Wedding At The Down Town Club In Philadelphia

February 1, 2016 Blog, Down Town Club, Jewish, Wedding Films

Cescaphe Event Group Down Town Club Wedding for Sarah and Shmuel

A wedding with Cescaphe Event Group is sure to be one to remember. Sarah and Shmuel decided to plan their wedding at the Down Town Club. This glamorous venue was the perfect pick for the happy couple. The tall windows within the ballroom overlook Old City and the Delaware River. In addition to the views, the inside is equally as stunning. Marble floors and wood panelling create an elegant atmosphere for weddings. Paired with decor from Evantine Design, Sarah and Shmuel had the perfect set up for their big day.

The First Look

Before their ceremony, Sarah and Shmuel met outside for a touching first look. Sarah’s face immediately lit up when Shmuel tapped her shoulder. The love between them shone through with every smile. It was such a touching moment for our Allure Films team to capture. Our friends from Philip Gabriel Photography also joined us in capturing their big day though photography.

A Down Town Club Wedding Ceremony

After meeting, the two headed inside for a traditional Jewish ceremony. Under the beautifully decorated chuppah, Sarah and Shmuel became husband and wife. After the ceremonial smashing of the glass, everyone cheered and shouted “mazel tov!” to the newlyweds. Then, they made their way back up the aisle, and into the reception area.


The Down Town Club ballroom was beautifully decorated with large glass vases, white and pink flowers, and soft white candles. The romantic decor paired with the Down Town Club’s elegant scenery created a gorgeous reception venue. BVT Live’s Jellyroll joined in at the reception to provide great entertainment. All of the guests danced and sang along to the music all night.

Heartfelt Speeches

As the speeches started, Sarah’s father summed it up best for the two. Life should not be filled with complications, but simply only the best things. He said, “May you lead the life you always imagined: surrounded my friends, family, and most especially,  love.”

Both families were so excited for the couple to marry. Through many congratulations and well wishes, you could feel the genuine compassion in the room. Sarah’s sister said, “Shmuel has a beautiful heart. The love that our family feels for him is immeasurable. He is a gift from God. He is just perfect for my sister and more than I deserve for a brother.” It was such a touching sentiment to hear the kindness between families as they became one. Sarah’s father also stated that he always wanted a son.

The night continued on with more laughter, dancing, and love. It was a perfect day for Sarah and Shmuel to begin their lives together.

Wow. The bride and groom couldn’t have picked a better venue to celebrate their big day!

Sarah and Shmuel celebrated a dazzling day at the Down Town Club in Philadelphia. Among family and friends, our bride and groom shared memorable moments and traditions as they exchanged vows.

It quickly became obvious how much both families cherish this adoring couple. Their kind and touching words about Sarah and Shmuel will certainly be something to remember, and the Allure Films team was pleased to capture it all on film!

After their touching traditional Jewish ceremony, the newlyweds wandered down to the reception hall, where they were stunned by the beauty of the space!

The Down Town Club is both modern and luxurious, a perfect fit for Sarah & Shmuel’s wedding celebration. It offers panoramic views of the city for all to enjoy.

The guests had a blast celebrating with the happy couple. We’ve never seen so many people out on the dance floor! The decorations were stunning, the food was quickly devoured, and the band kept the party going all night long.

Great choice Sarah and Shmuel! And a big thank you for allowing us to be a part of your big day!
