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.

A Down Town Club Wedding With Some Harry Potter Magic

Allison had only known Ross for about two weeks before telling him that she was leaving for Kenya to finish up some research. Ross was not about to give up and let this amazing woman slip out of his life. When you find “the one,” you can’t let them get away! Ross booked the first flight to a continent he had never been to just to see Allison and the rest was history. Just a few years later the couple said “I do” at Philadelphia’s Down Town Club

If we could describe Allison & Ross’s wedding in one word, it would be “magical!” Allison and Ross got married on a day when the city looked like a winter wonderland. The Allure Films crew started our day documenting the couple’s wedding prep at the lovely Hotel Monaco. Following the wedding prep, our crew got to film (here comes that word again)  “magical” moments of the couple meeting each other outside as snow was falling from the sky. Ralph Deal Photography took some beautiful photos of the couple together during this time as well. It is always an honor and a blast working with this photographer!

Both the ceremony and the reception were held at the Down Town Club. The decor at the reception will make Harry Potter fans geek out when they see it in the wedding preview. The guest table seating cards were themed off of the sorting houses at Hogwarts. Instead of opting for tradition floral centerpieces, there were golden replicas of the whomping willow trees with tiny lanterns on the branches. And how about that wedding cake decked with a super cool flying dragon detail?! As the night went on there was lots of dancing to popular tunes spun by BVT Live‘s DJ Gaetano Basco.

Allison & Ross, may your future as husband and wife be filled with plenty of love, magic, laughter and Happily Ever After!
