A Magical Horticulture Center Wedding

October 10, 2017 Blog, Horticulture Center

From the moment Morgan took her first step down the aisle to meet her future husband, Justin, their wedding felt like something out of a storybook.

Philadelphia-based wedding planners Lauren James Events played a huge role in helping the bride and groom’s fairytale wedding dreams come to life. After a classic car ride from her childhood home to Fairmount Park, Morgan met Justin under a stunning wrought-iron archway wrapped in flowers and vines. The couple exchanged heartfelt vows to one another in front of their friends and family in the midst of the majestic and whimsical gardens of the Fairmount Park Horticulture Center.

After the ceremony, the princess bride and her prince were taken away on a horse-drawn carriage to join their loved ones for a magical evening of celebration. Their reception was held underneath a tent on the Horticulture Center property, filled with violet- and lavender-colored florals designed from the vision of Petah Bashano Event Design.

Not only were the decorations stunning, but one decoration in particular was looking especially delicious! The Donut Tree (yes, you read that right!) was definitely a hot spot for photos and satisfying your sweet tooth after the main course. Philip Gabriel Photography captured several great shots around The Donut Tree, as well as countless beautiful moments throughout the evening.

When the wedding party and guests weren’t chatting and reminiscing about stories of the bride and groom, they were dancing the night away to the sensational musical performance by The Vincent James Band.

Fireworks capped off the magical evening, and Morgan and Justin were caught stealing more than one kiss in the middle of the show! Congratulations to the happy couple, and best wishes for a life of happiness together!

4 Reasons To Say “I Do!” To A Fall Wedding In Philadelphia

March 8, 2016 Blog, Horticulture Center

Philadelphia Fall WeddingThese days, “wedding season” lasts all year long!

Thinking about a fall wedding? Allure Films has 4 great reasons to tie the knot in the fall, complete with a sneak peek at an autumn wedding we recently filmed:

1. Breathtaking Backdrop

Fall foliage is a perfect backdrop for your wedding photos!

Whether you’re planning your big day indoors or out, capturing those stunning fall colors in the background is a must!

2. Amazing Color Schemes

Fall lends itself to a wide selection of color schemes from décor, to flowers, to cake, and even dresses! Whether your ideal palette is simple or elaborate, there are plenty of options to choose from. Here are just a few of our favorites:

3. Temperature

In many regions, fall offers predictable temperatures and weather. This can also be an advantage in deciding on your gown. If you prefer sleeves, it won’t be too hot. If you prefer sleeveless, it won’t be too cold (nothing an elegant shawl can’t take care of, at least!)

This past fall, our gorgeous bride, Ali, pulled off this lacy cap-sleeved gown perfectly!

4. Vendor/Venue Availability

While the fall months have gained popularity, the summer months remain the height of wedding season. As a result, this creates more availability for wedding venues and vendors in the fall.

Ali & Matt hosted their special day at The Horticulture Center. This modern venue offers a stunning greenhouse with beautiful fountains and gardens. It was the perfect place for Ali and Matt’s big day!
