A Wedding At The Union League – Four Years In The Making

Meagan & Michael's Wedding at the Union LeagueAfter being together for “four years, nine weeks, three days and 19 hours,” Meagan & Michael finally tied the knot before friends and family at the Union League of Philadelphia.

Our filmmakers were there from the beginning to document the preparation before the ceremony, and the stunning footage kept rolling all the way to the end of the reception. Our friends at Philip Gabriel Photography were there to get great shots of Meagan & Michael in front of City Hall and the Art Museum, along with indoor shots of the couple in the Union League’s Four-Diamond hotel The Inn.

Michael’s son stood by his side serving as his father’s best man, while Meagan’s sister served as her Maid-of-Honor and walked her down the aisle. At the end of the night, Meagan & Michael – who are known as “M&M” – cut into an adorable wedding cake featuring a bride and groom M&M cartoon candy wedding topper. The newlyweds loved it just as much as their guests did!

Congratulations Meagan & Michael, and may all your days, weeks, months and years together be filled with a tremendous amount of love! Thank you for allowing the Allure Films team to capture your stunning wedding at the Union League!

Winter Elegance At The Union League

Winter brides, take note! Allure Films captured plenty of winter wedding inspiration while filming Francesca and Brian’s stunning Union League wedding video.

The entire day was filled with laughter and plenty of fun. Even the first look gave us a giggle, with Brian’s adorable backwards wave as he heard his bride walking toward him.

Brian and Francesca’s wedding party was a blast to be around, and we captured plenty of smiles and laughs in our “getting ready” footage. Francesca looked stunning in her wedding dress, with a fur coat to keep her warm and snug in Philadelphia’s frigid winter temperatures.

The wedding took place at the Union League. Located in the heart of Philadelphia, it is one of our favorite places to film. There are so many beautiful rooms, soaring ceilings, jaw-dropping chandeliers, and impressive architectural accents that make every angle amazing. Documenting a romantic kiss on the iconic twin staircases is a must, and as always, we were not disappointed by the outcome of that perfect shot!

As if the venue wasn’t stunning enough, Carl Allen Floral Designs took everything up a notch. Between their stunning arrangements, the upbeat live music from EBE’s Dreamtime, and the fabulous bride and groom, the wedding was truly picture perfect!

Enjoy this short preview from Francesca and Brian’s big day:

Congratulations, Francesca and Brian, and thank you for letting Allure Films be a part of your wedding day!

Love, Laughter, And Plenty Of Patriotism At A Union League Wedding

What an overwhelming day filled with love!

From the love for their country, to the love for their city, to their undying love for each other, Christine and Evan’s wedding day was one of the most romantic events that Allure Films has had the privilege of filming.

As members of the United States Air Force, the beautiful couple carried a patriotic theme throughout their wedding. Red, white, and blue dresses, flowers, and even the wedding cake kept everyone feeling festive and the venues looking incredible.

Christine and Evan exchanged their vows at the stunning Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter & Paul, right at the heart of Philadelphia. Afterward, they were whisked away to some of Center City’s most amazing locations, where our friends at Philip Gabriel Photography snapped photographs of the entire wedding party having fun.

After sneaking several kisses underneath the new “AMOR” sign at the top of the Art Museum Steps, the newlyweds moved the party to The Union League of Philadelphia. With more than 150 years of history supporting the United States military, it was the perfect place for Captain and Mrs. Farren to celebrate their marriage.

From the lively music by EBE Dreamtime to Evan’s one-of-a-kind Eagles party shirt hidden under his uniform jacket, the fun-filled reception was definitely one for the books.

Congratulations to the newlyweds! Thanks for letting the Allure team be a party of your special day! Enjoy this preview from Christine and Evan’s Union League wedding:

Commemorating 10 Years of Love With Vow Renewal Videography

​For more than 20 years, I have had the distinct honor of documenting countless wonderful weddings with some of the most amazing brides and grooms.

During this time, the Allure Films team and I have also had the opportunity to work with so many talented industry professionals throughout the Greater Philadelphia region.

Recently, my good friends Dawn and Gabe Fredericks celebrated their 10-year anniversary in grand fashion. They shared a beautiful vow renewal, and had an awesome celebration at The Union League of Philadelphia. Dawn looked as stunning as she did on her wedding day, and we’re pretty sure we saw Gabe shed a tear or two when he saw her walking down the aisle!

The day was full of laughter, tears of joy, and fond memories of the past 10 years spent together, as well as well-wishes for the years to come. This time around, Dawn and Gabe were blessed to have their children involved in the celebration!
Vow Renewal Videography - 10 Year Anniversary Film Gabe and I have been working side by side documenting weddings for years, and it was so wonderful to see him on the other side of the camera. Here’s to 100 more years filled with love, health, and happiness! Congrats Dawn & Gabe!
