We love watching the excitement between couples when they finally reach their big day. At the Ritz-Carlton Philadelphia, Andrew and Rachel prepared for their wedding. Throughout the whole day, the two could not stop smiling at each other. During their first look, it was easy to see the spark that led to this great day. Equally as excited, their friends and family stood by, cheering for their favorite couple.
Everyone celebrated together during the reception with entertainment from Philadelphia wedding band Onyx. However, before the celebration could begin, Lamsback Floral transformed the Ritz into a dream wedding scene for Andrew and Rachel.
Our team at Allure Films captured the wedding on film while our talented friends from Philip Gabriel Photography joined us in photographing the event. We were so lucky to be a part of such a grand event and see Andrew and Rachel come together as husband and wife. Their wedding day was filled with laughter, excitement, and hundreds of smiles. We wish all of these things to them in every day together.
Are you searching for the perfect place to host your wedding ceremony and reception, all in one convenient (and gorgeous!) location? The Ritz Carlton Hotel in Philadelphia just might be the venue of your dreams.
Hillary Gordon and Andy Apfelbaum fell in love with The Ritz’s exquisite Grand Ballroom and perfect location right in the heart of Center City. Just seconds away from City Hall, The Ritz is a celebrated and newly renovated hotel with amazing vistas and beautiful architecture that makes for great backdrops for wedding day photographs.
Allure Films was there to record every breathtaking moment during Hillary and Andy’s wedding day. The creative visionaries of the Evantine Design team were responsible for transforming the Grand Ballroom from an intimate and romantic ceremony venue to a beautiful dining and dancing space in an instant.
Imagine the guests’ surprise when they stepped out of the Grand Ballroom for cocktail hour, only to be led right back into the same room for the reception which now looked completely different! We loved catching their faces on film as their jaws dropped in amazement.
EBE’s Dreamtime took charge of packing the dance floor with the guests and wedding party, including the adorable flower girls and ring bearers. In addition to the celebrated first dance and hora, Allure Films was able to document the traditional Mezinke dance, the crowning ceremony honoring the bride’s parents for marrying off their last child.
Congratulations and Mazol Tov Mr. and Mrs. Apfelbaum! Here’s to many more years of love and happiness!
Allure Films is not only grateful for this award, but also that we have the opportunity to work with an incredible list of professionals throughout the greater Philadelphia community. Here’s to creating more amazing and memorable events together in 2018!
This is one fun-filled Philadelphia wedding video that you simply have to see!
The Allure Films team was thrilled Jennifer and Gregory asked us to document their gorgeous Philly wedding. They would be celebrating their special day in not one, but two of our most favorite locations!
Their ceremony took place at the jaw-dropping Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul. The cathedral looks like something straight out of the Vatican with its breathtaking columns, antique marble, and beautiful stained glass,. It felt even more special illuminated by the smiles of the happy couple.
After the ceremony, the party really got started! We all climbed into a party bus and made our way over to The Ritz-Carlton. Along the way, we made a few stops at some of Philadelphia’s most beautiful landmarks. The gorgeous fall foliage created the perfect backdrop for the entire wedding party to strike funky poses, and the Allure team was there to capture every happy moment.
As we filed into The Ritz, everyone’s jaws drop. The always-elegant venue did not disappoint. The décor was perfect, and EBE’s Rio kept the party going all night long with their flawless musical performances.
Congratulations to the newlyweds, and thanks for inviting Allure Films along to capture your big day!
