Heather-Anne & Jules Phoenixville Foundry wedding videoFor Heather-Anne and Jules’ wedding, the Allure Films crew found ourselves back at the Phoenixville Foundry for an evening of love, laughter and fire dancing. That’s right, fire dancing!

Aside from each other, this bride and groom share a passion for fire dancing. Talk about upping the entertainment ante for your guests! We bet it was the first time many of the couple’s guests got to enjoy such riveting acts at a wedding. It was such a privilege for both our filmmakers and for the photographers from Philip Gabriel Photography to capture these amazing performances.

The wedding began with the couple’s non-clergy ceremony before their friends and family in the venue’s lovely Sculpture Garden. The Foundry’s Sculpture Garden provides a perfect ambiance for an outdoor sunset ceremony. For those who don’t know, a non-clergy wedding is when the bride and groom officiate their own marriage without a third party clergy member. This allowed for the bride and groom’s vows to be truly their own, giving them the chance to reflect on their love and devotion to one another.

We also want to give an honorable mention to the bridal party’s twist on the traditional bouquet. Instead of holding a full floral bouquet, the bride walked down the aisle holding a lantern that lit her way, designed in collaboration with the couple’s floral designer Carl Alan Designs. Truly a unique touch!

At the reception, the dance floor of the Phoenixville Foundry’s Cupola Ballroom was packed thanks to fabulous music by the Silver Sound Entertainment. To close the celebration, Heather-Anne and Jules had surprised their guests with the perfect ending to their big night with a beautiful firework display. This was truly a wedding full of sparks in every sense of the word.

Congratulations Heather-Anne and Jules, and here’s to a lifetime together filled with love and adventure!

Love Fills The Air – Both Indoors And Out – At Meghan & Alexander’s Wedding

Feb

2018

As Meghan and Alexander finished up their final undergraduate semester at the University of Notre Dame, little did they know they were about to earn a degree…and a partner for life! Meghan and Alex were married in a Catholic ceremony surrounded by their friends and family at Our Mother of Good Counsel.

Allure Films began our day of filming this joyous occasion with the bridal party prep. When Meghan had to make the decision about who she would ask to be her matron-of-honor, the answer was clearly a no-brainer: it would be both of her sisters, Mary Lauren and Katie.

Do these ladies look familiar? That’s because Allure Films had the honor of filming Mary Lauren and her husband Derek’s wedding a few short months ago!

Now, on Meghan and Alex’s big day, we followed the couple from there ceremony to a reception at the Overbrook Golf Club, where it is always great to work with Jimmy and his amazing team. No Overbrook Golf Club wedding is complete without the bride and groom getting outdoor photographs together. M2 Photography took beautiful photographs of the happy newlyweds on the club’s beautiful landscape.

The reception was a fun time filled with speeches made by the bride and groom’s immediate family members along with dancing to BVT Live’s incredible Big Ric Rising Band. Alexander and his groomsmen even treated the guests with a song performance!

Congratulations Meghan and Alexander! May your joining together bring you more joy than you can imagine!



Happily Ever After At The Westin Hotel In Philadelphia

Feelings of love and celebration filled the air of the Westin Hotel Philadelphia on Carly and Jeremy’s wedding day. One of the unique factors about their wedding was that the wedding prep, ceremony and reception all took place inside the hotel. Talk about convenience for both the wedding party and their guests!

Photographer Ron Soliman was there to capture amazing shots from both inside and outside of the hotel, including scenic shots from the couple’s “First Look.” One of the most touching moments for the team from Allure Films to document that day was the ceremony, especially when the bride walked down the aisle and was given away by her mother and father to the Beatles classic, “Here Comes The Sun.”

As soon as Jeremy smashed the glass at the end of the ceremony, it was time to party! In addition to creating the breathtaking chuppah, Carl Alan Floral Designs also helped transform the hotel’s Grand Ballroom to a space fit for a dream reception, including submerged floral and candle centerpieces at every table. After a delicious meal, the guests were dancing all night to great music by EBE’s LA Starz.

For a sneak peek at all of the fun, take a look at this sample of Carly and Jeremy’s Westin Philadelphia Wedding video:

Jennifer & Daniel’s Fun-Filled, Romantic Countryside Wedding

Jan

2018

If you’re looking for a genuine countryside wedding, then Ironstone Ranch is the perfect place for you! When Jennifer and Daniel ventured outside of the Philadelphia suburbs and found themselves at this gorgeous ranch in Elizabethtown, they knew they had found the venue they had been looking for.

Ironstone Ranch is a working horse ranch situated on 275 acres of stunning land, complete with all the rural charm of rolling green hills, orchards, seasonal flower gardens, restored farmhouses, and live animals roaming the grounds. The couple’s Thursday wedding could not have been held on a more beautiful day, and it certainly was a great kickoff to the weekend!

Jennifer and Daniel both prepared for their ceremony at the ranch’s fully restored 1860’s farmhouse, where the Allure Films crew was able to document heartfelt behind-the-scenes looks. One of the most touching moments was when Jennifer and Daniel had their “first look”…which wasn’t actually a first look at all since they wanted to wait until Jennifer walked down the aisle towards her groom. Instead, they held hands as they hid behind a door, reading sweet cards from each other and exchanging loving words before heading off to their ceremony.

The ranch’s Open Air Mini Barn served as the wedding chapel, a rustic space filled with décor elements and floral arrangements all designed specifically for the couple’s ceremony by the ranch’s in-house designer. The wedding ceremony ended like a fairytale, with the couple being whisked away together on a romantic white horse-drawn carriage for a ride around the acreage. The couple made sure to take stops along the scenic route for photographs taken by Epic Photography.

For the outdoor cocktail hour the adults were able to sip their drinks and play cornhole and horseshoes, while the kids were treated to pony rides and a visit from an adorable donkey named Leroy. After cocktail hour, Jennifer and Daniel met up with their guests in the Ironstone Ranch’s Main Barn for dining on a delicious meal by C&J Catering and dancing to a performance by the incredible Bachelor Boys Band.

Get a glimpse at all of the fun while watching Jennifer and Daniel’s Ironstone Ranch wedding video:

Mazel Tov Jennifer & Daniel, and here’s to a lifetime together filled with a whole lotta love n’ fun!

Morgan and Ben tied the knot in front of their friends and loved ones, who filled every pew of the stunning The National Shrine of Saint Rita’s of Cascia. It’s been a while since we’ve been to this gorgeous chapel, and it proved to be the perfect setting for the happy couple to exchange their vows.

After saying “I Do”, Morgan and Ben led their guests up Broad Street to the Grand Ballroom of downtown Philadelphia’s iconic and historic Hyatt at the Bellevue. The Hyatt at the Bellevue is conveniently located in the heart of Philadelphia, on a section of Broad known as the Avenue of the Arts. Its convenient location allows for incredible photo and video opportunities, and Allure Films knows of several places nearby to get the perfect shot in front of some of the city’s most well-known landmarks.

Lamsback Floral Decorators were the designers of the beautiful ivory floral arrangements that were the perfect compliment to the couple’s classic black and white style wedding. The couple’s wedding photographer, Philip Gabriel Photography, was able to get some fun and romantic shots of both the whole wedding party and just the couple themselves. The Eddie Bruce Orchestra provided the musical entertainment that had everyone dancing the night away!

Congratulations Morgan and Ben, and here’s to continuing to build a beautiful life together!

2017

Crystal and Daniel went from high school sweethearts to husband and wife! The bride and groom tied the knot before their friends and family in a lovely ceremony held at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church of Doylestown, PA. The church was beautifully decorated with elegant violet and purple floral arrangements created by the design team of Eventricity. Aside from the floral arrangements that lined the sides of the church pews, Eventricity also created the showstopping archway the bride walked through on her way down the aisle.

Philip Gabriel Photography and Allure Films were there to not only capture the beautiful décor details, but also all the touching moments from the ceremony and reception. Allure Films had the privilege of covering some special wedding traditions belonging to Crystal’s Lebanese heritage from their reception held at Drexelbrook Catering & Special Event Center. A great moment for us to capture on film was when the bride and groom participated in a debkeh dance in celebration of the joyous day. The debkeh dance is a traditional Arabic folk dance that is passed down from generation to generation combining circle and line dancing all in one.

Crystal and Daniel, here’s to a lifetime of celebrating each other’s heritage and creating your own special family traditions together!



You’ll Fall In Love With This Stunning Rittenhouse Hotel Wedding

Dec

2017

Brittany and David’s wedding was a day filled with love, laughter and plenty of Penn Pride!

As young college freshman at the University of Pennsylvania, Brittany and David were introduced to an education and a love they would share with one another for an eternity beyond those next four years. Since the city of Philadelphia is where these two college sweethearts first met, it was only fitting that Brittany and David came back from NYC to tie the knot at the city’s celebrated and historic Rittenhouse Hotel.

Allure Films and Cliff Mautner Photography were at Brittany and David’s wedding to photograph and film beautiful moments between the couple and their wedding party inside the hotel, as well as outside against the picturesque backdrop of Rittenhouse Square Park. Both the ceremony and reception took place in the hotel’s ballroom, which was magically transformed while guests enjoyed cocktail hour. Philadelphia’s Evantine Design team were behind all of the spectacular floral arrangements, including the gorgeous hanging floral display that served as the couple’s chuppah.

After the beautiful ceremony, everyone let loose on the dance floor and hammed it up for the photobooth station, which provided tons of fun props and buttons with sayings such as “PENN IS MY HAPPY PLACE.” When the guests were wiped out from taking photos and dancing, they were sure to stop by the bagel wall! David’s company, Schmear It, provided a wide variety of bagels and “Schmear” to satisfy the guests’ biggest cravings.

Brittany and David, Mazel Tov and Go Quakers from all of us at Allure Films!
