A Gorgeous Wedding Day at the Ballroom at the Ben

We had the honor of filming Colleen and Steve’s wedding day at the Ballroom at the Ben. The two had a beautiful church ceremony, but then continued on to their reception at the Ballroom at the Ben. This Finley Catering venue was the perfect  choice for their elegant wedding day.

They celebrated with the help of EBE Talent, who kept everyone on the dancefloor. Evantine Design made this day even more beautiful with their gorgeous decor. Our Allure Films team captured this day on film and worked alongside Alison Conklin Photography who took photographs for the couple.

Colleen and Steve truly had such a heartwarming and special day. Every family member and friend seemed to have something to say about their favorite couple. Colleen’s sister said in her speech, “If I could have handpicked a guy for my sister to marry, it would have been Steve.” Everyone agrees that they are a “10/10” couple overall!

Congratulations Colleen and Steve! We wish you many more joyful days together.

Abigail and Drew’s Center City Wedding

Center City WeddingSometimes the best relationships are the unexpected ones. It worked that way for Abigail and Drew. In her vows, Abigail says that while she was not searching for anything, Andrew became her everything. That life changing moment brought them to their wedding day.  The lovely couple married Ballroom at the Ben. During the ceremony, their personalized vows made everyone tear up. Abigail and Drew’s Center City wedding went off without a hitch. When announced husband and wife, their guests cheered wildly.

Upon entering the reception, Abigail and Drew couldn’t help but jump up and down with excitement. They were finally starting their lives together as husband and wife. Abigail’s father made a touching speech about the day he realized how great Andrew is for his daughter. We are always so lucky to capture these touching moments on film. Our Allure Films team captured so many wonderful moments from this specials day. We were also lucky to work alongside our friends from Baiada Photography.

We wish for so many more memorable days between Abigail and Drew. Congratulations to the happy couple!

A Glistening Wedding at the Ballroom at the Ben

Ballroom at the BenAn abundance of happy tears flowed throughout Crystal and Giuliano’s wedding day. After preparation at the Hotel Monaco, the couple relocated to the Ballroom at the Ben for their ceremony and reception.  They vowed that the day was not about starting a new life, but strengthening the bond they already had together.

During the reception, no one got through their speeches without shedding a few happy tears. Everyone genuinely adored the couple and their decision to come together as husband and wife. In celebration, family and friends danced the night away with the newlyweds to entertainment from DJ Sat-One. As the dancing ensued, flashing lights and sparkling towers made the reception even more exciting.

Our Allure Films team was honored to film this day, especially since we were able to work alongside our talented friends from Philip Gabriel Photography. It is easy to capture true love like that between Crystal and Giuliano. We wish them so many more exciting days together.

Congratulations Crystal and Giuliano!

Philly Flavor With A Touch Of New Orleans Tradition At The Independence Visitor Center

The City of Brotherly Love felt like the Big Easy on Theresa & Bret’s wedding day!

Theresa & Bret were married in a beautiful ceremony held at the Liberty View Ballroom of Philadelphia’s Independence Visitor Center. Although the couple currently reside in the Greater Philadelphia area, it was important to the couple that they incorporate the wedding traditions from Bret’s hometown of New Orleans into their special day. The team from Allure Films was happy to capture every last detail on film.

The Independence National Historical Park felt like the French Quarter when Theresa & Ben twirled their parasols in the air, leading a “Second Line parade” to the Ballroom at the Ben after exchanging their vows. A Second Line parade is a New Orleans wedding custom: traditionally, the “first line” consists of the wedding party and a brass band, while the rest of the wedding guests  create a “second line” of revelers whipping their handkerchiefs in celebration. Not only was this a sight to see, but the band was fantastic!

Just like the first half of Theresa & Bret’s wedding, the reception at the Ballroom at the Ben was nothing short of sensational. The ballroom was completely adorned in gorgeous floral arrangements and table centerpieces by the talented artists of Lamsback Floral Decorators. Guests were served cocktails, appetizers, and a delicious main course prepared by the awesome culinary team at Finley Catering. After the couple’s first dance, the dance floor was filled with everyone moving to the tunes of yesterday and today performed by EBE’s Milan 77.

Congratulations Theresa & Bret. As they say in N’awlins “Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler!” Translation: Let the good times roll!

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!”

Ballroom At The Ben Videography

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!
