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

A Rittenhouse Hotel Wedding Story

Brittany and David’s Rittenhouse Hotel 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.

Rittenhouse hotel wedding

On June 26th, Allure Films had the honor to be Samantha and Spencer’s wedding videographer in Philadelphia.  

We are celebrating their one year wedding anniversary!  We are so glad our team filmed their beautiful wedding day and captured so many heartwarming moments. They held the wedding at the lavish beautiful  Rittenhouse Hotel that overlooks  Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  Rittenhouse Hotel is rated Four-Star because their team caters to every aspect of your wedding to make it an elegant and memorable event.

Samantha and Spencer were such a great couple to work with, and we are so glad our Allure Films team was able to record their special day. They shared their endearing story with us, as high school sweethearts, Samantha and Spencer have grown up together and learned to love each other more each year as time went on. Your spouse should be both your love and your best friend. Samantha and Spencer are both of these to each other, making them an amazing couple and such an honor to meet them.

While they exchanged vows, family and friends looked on with love & support. Beautiful flowers hung overhead on the chuppah.  A chuppah holds a beautiful tradition and symbolism. It represents the Jewish home with its four posts and its cloth canopy.  The gorgeous arrangement was from Evantine Design. When the two exchanged their first kiss as husband and wife, their guests erupted with applause.

During the reception, more of Evantine Design’s arrangements decorated the beautiful venue. Everyone mingled and hugged the bride and groom as they made their entrance. Our friends from Philip Gabriel Photography accompanied us and took great photos of the special day. The crowd of guests kept their feet moving to music from Empire Sound throughout the night. There was so much excitement, especially when the couple was lifted in the air during the hora. The Hora, or chair dance typically danced to the music of the traditional Jewish song. The bride and groom are often hoisted into the air on chairs while their friends and family dance in a circle around them. Such an awesome tradition!  

Their families welcomed each other with open arms and raved about having new family members that they are so grateful for.  Many people commented that they were their favorite couple. The reception was filled with hugs, heartfelt speeches, and of course, love.  You could feel the love in the air!

We had such a great time filming Samantha and Spencer’s wedding day for them. We are happy to know that they can always relive that day through their wedding film. These are special moments that capture the spirit of the day.  Congratulations again Samantha and Spencer! We know you have many more great memories to come. Happy anniversary!

A Rittenhouse Hotel Wedding with Extra Philly Pride!

RittenhouseRebecca and Adam had a beautiful wedding in Center City Philadelphia at the Rittenhouse. You could feel the love in the air from their first look. Adam was blown away by his beautiful bride-to-be. Baiada Photography took gorgeous photos in different picture-esque places around the venue. They happily posed on the spiral staircase in front of the Rittenhouse and even in the middle of Broad Street.

Rebecca and Adam truly celebrated their Philadelphia pride during their reception. The top two layers of their wedding cake had the Philadelphia Eagles logo on it and the 76ers logo! The next layer showed the Philadelphia Love Park sign, the liberty bell, and of course, some Philly pretzels.

Friends and family had a great time at the wonderfully decorate reception, thanks to Carl Alan Floral Design. Guests also danced along to the sounds from EBE Talent’s Rio band. Our Allure Films team had such a great time capturing this great wedding for Rebecca  and Adam. We wish them all the best. Mazel Tov!

Tara and Anthony’s Elegant Wedding Day

Rittenhouse Hotel ReceptionAfter years of knowing each other, Tara and Anthony’s connection turned into everlasting love. Even when they were apart for a little while, Tara still held a place in Anthony’s heart. After finding an old mixtape she made for him years before, he realized his feelings never changed. Inspired by the music, Anthony knew this sign meant he should be with Tara. After reconnecting, the two tied the knot in St. Thomas of Villanova to start their future together.

After the ceremony, the newlyweds and guests went to the Rittenhouse Hotel for a reception. The beautiful Rittenhouse Hotel gave the couple indoor and outdoor accommodations for their stylish reception. After the couple’s breathtaking first dance,  Faze 4’s True Blue  entertained guests for the rest of the night.

Our Allure Films team was lucky enough to be a part of such an elegant day. We were honored to film these moments for Tara and Anthony. Our friends from Baida Photography also joined us by photographing all of the special moments.

Congratulations Tara and Anthony! We wish for many happy years to come.
