James and Kara dated for four years before tieing the knot at the Kimmel Center. Together, they read each other personalized vows. James chose a poem for Kara, mixed with funny anecdotes and heartfelt thoughts. James wrapped up his vows by saying, “Kara you mean everything in the world to me, you complete my life, it’s time to end this poem, so I can finally call you my wife.”
Their ceremony had many touching moments. Family members took turns wishing them well and helping to join them together. Holding back tears, Kara’s brother and best friend officially pronounced them husband and wife. In between the ceremony and reception, the Kimmel Center transformed for the reception. All About Events made sure that everything went smoothly and beautifully for the happy couple. We also worked with Emily Wren Photography who helped capture this special day. For entertainment, BVT Live’s Jellyroll also performed at the reception. The loving atmosphere and excellent music kept everyone together on the dancefloor.
Our Allure Films team was so grateful to be a part of James and Kara’s day at the Kimmel Center. We hope every day is filled with happiness and love. Congratulation Kara and James!
Accomplished journalists Laura and Greg just finished an important chapter in their never-ending fairytale: their wedding day!
Laura and Greg recently tied the knot at the renowned Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts in Center City Philadelphia. Both the ceremony and reception were held within the performance venue’s Hamilton Rooftop Garden.
The Hamilton Rooftop Garden is a beautiful atrium oasis that offers incredible views of the Philadelphia skyline. Petals Lane created a wonderful environment with design elements such as the beautiful chuppah, romantic candle lanterns lining the aisle, and stunning floral arrangements at the reception.
Photographer Susan Stripling was there to capture all the great moments alongside the talented videographers of Allure Films. After the couple said “I do”, the evening consisted of touching speeches from family members as guests dined on a wonderful culinary treat from the amazing chefs at Garces Events.
After dinner, everyone danced to an incredible set performed by the American Deluxe Band, while the beautiful stars shined on them through the Kimmel Center’s soaring glass ceiling.
