Allison and Adam’s wedding day started with the two bustling around behind the scenes, getting ready at the Overbrook Golf Club.

After a final cheers with her bridesmaids, Allison tearfully opened some pre-wedding gifts and cards. Even though the day was just beginning, everyone was feeling the love and getting emotional quick. After wrapping up with her bridesmaids, Allison made her way downstairs to meet her father. At the bottom of the stairs, Allison’s father exclaimed, “Oh my goodness, beautiful!” upon seeing his daughter in her wedding dress. They shared their touching moment, and then made their way to the church where her father walked her down the aisle.

At the end of the aisle, Adam awaited his bride to be.Each and every one of Adam’s groomsmen smiled widely as they watched Adam meet his bride. The wedding party all looked full of joy seeing their friends come together as husband and wife.

Allison and Adam’s Church Ceremony

The ceremony began with a sermon on the meaning of love between two people. Specifically, the sermon focused on love’s endurance. A part that rings true in all marriages stated that the two must strive to “live a love that is kind and patient, not rude or inflated, love that rejoices with the truth that bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things, because that kind of love never fails.” After the initial readings, Allison and Adam began to exchange vows. Adam wipes a tear away before placing a ring on his now wife’s finger. Friends and family cheered on as they shared their first kiss as husband and wife.

After the ceremony, Allison and Adam made their way to Overbrook Golf Club. They arrived in a luxurious, antique town car with “Just Married” on the back. Their stylish entrance put them right at the front of Overbrook’s Clubhouse. This was a great spot for a photo opportunity from Azzolina Photography.  Though the clubhouse is regularly used for dinners and receptions, Allison and Adam celebrated their reception outside near the golf green. Before making their way to the reception, Allison and Adam had more photos taken in front of the manor with their family and wedding party.

After their montage of photos, everyone made their way to the reception. They continued the days celebration on the Overbrook Golf Club‘s patio area. This area overlooked the gold course with stunning views. One by one, friends and family stood up to make their speeches. Allison’s father made jokes about when Allison first brought Adam over for dinner. He spoke about how easy it was to see how much Adam cared for Allison from those first few meetings, and he thanked Adam for “loving Allison as much as we do.”

Weddings Speeches

Through a myriad of heartfelt speeches, everyone’s settled on a common theme: teamwork. A great marriage comes from a couple that can work together like a team. Allison and Adam compliment each other and support each other’s interests and feelings. After the final speech, everyone toasted to their favorite couple.

As Kevin and Karen exited the Church, their guests waited outside the doors with bubbles in hand. Hand in hand, the two walked through a wave of bubbles in the air. After walking down the stairs to the church, Kevin and Karen shared another kiss amidst the bubbles. This created a gorgeous scene for us to capture on video and Wildflower Photographs to get as photos. After snapping a few more photos outside the church, everyone headed off to Radnor Valley Country Club.

The tents were outlined in twinkling lights, which lit up the reception as the sun went down. The tables were highlighted with light blue accents and a miniature bottle of wine for each guest. Each wine bottle came with a customized wedding koozie as a gift for the guests.

Before settling into the ceremony, Kevin and Karen toured the grounds for more photos and time together. Kevin lifted Karen across the grass and in front of one of the fountains at the club. The two continued their journey and rode in a golf cart through the venue. The wind gently blew Karen’s veil for a beautiful shot on top of a wooden bridge. Each area of the Radnor Valley Country Club created a unique scene for the two to start their celebration together.

As the reception went on, Schaffer Sound Disc Jockeys kept everyone on the dancefloor. After Karen and Kevin shared their heartwarming first dance, everyone joined in to keep the party going. Kevin busted out a lot of great dance moves throughout the night, including some classic seventies disco moves. In between dinner and dancing, family and friends gave speeches and toasts.

Heartwarming Speeches

Kevin’s brother began by addressing Kevin as the “most genuine, kind-hearted person that I have ever known.” He followed by saying, “Karen we completely open you into our family with open arms. Kevin will be by your side forever. We love you very much and I’m proud to call you my sister.”

In another touching speech, Karen’s older sister addressed the couple’s similarities. She states that they are both kind, comparing, compassionate, and stubborn. This elicited a few laughs from the crowd as she went on about them. She ended with,  “Watching them grow as a couple made me so happy to find out they both found each other.”

Maryn & Michael’s Wedding At Radnor Valley Country Club

Happy Anniversary Lauren and Brett!

November 18, 2020 Wedding Films

The Logan hotel wedding

  The Logan hotel wedding   The Logan Hotel Wedding

Lauren and Brett are celebrating one year of marriage together after getting married at The Logan Hotel Philadelphia. They married inside at The Logan’s ballroom after dating for 9 years. They were set up by friends for a date party, and the rest is history. During their vows, both of them spoke about how special that night was to them. It was their first day together that would eventually lead them to their wedding.  Their vows were heartfelt and mixed with some inside jokes, which really encapsulated their relationship.

When exchanging their vows, Lauren and Brett stood beneath a lovely decorated chuppah created by Jamie Rothstein. As they wrapped up, Brett’s voice began to waver as his emotions got the best of him. It was a lovely ceremony overall and happy tears were shed from family and friend. From one long ago magical night, to their wedding day, Lauren and Brett took their next step in life together as husband and wife.

Perhaps the next happiest person aside from the bride and groom was Lauren’s father. Before the ceremony, he saw his daughter for the first time in her wedding dress. He beamed at her and exclaimed, “you look gorgeous! Wow!” Throughout the day, he continually smiled and looked upon his daughter with joy. During the reception, he spoke of how happy Lauren makes everyone around her, and how grateful he is to now have Brett as part of the family. It is easy to tell where Lauren gets her friendly and loving personality from.

Our team from Allure Films worked alongside Baiada Photography to capture all of these special moments at The Logan. The party picked up with live music from EBE Talent’s London Bridge. There was so much energy and excitement in the room for the reception. The two were lifted high during the Hora as their party guests held them and danced around them.  During the speeches, everyone that spoke looked upon Lauren and Brett with admiration. The dancing and speeches kept the night energetic and full of love and laughter.

We noticed a common theme of all of the speeches throughout each. Over again, Lauren and Brett are referred to not only as each other’s partners, but their best friends. That is such an important part of a relationship. A great romance with a solid friendship as a foundation makes the best partnership in life. Lauren and Brett are a team built on communication, trust, and friendship.

We are so happy to be a part of Lauren and Brett’s special day. It was a wonderful experience to watch you two come together. We hope you two had a great first year together as husband and wife, and look upon your wedding film for years to come. Mazle tov! Happy anniversary!

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.

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

A Boutique Wedding at Cescaphe’s Vie

September 2, 2020 Wedding Films

boutique wedding

Philadelphia, PA | Allure Films Videographer

During the current changes in everyday life, weddings are evolving. Amidst event restrictions, couple Sara and Mitchell found a way to celebrate their marriage with a boutique wedding. Cescaphe Event Group hosted them at their venue, Vie in their outdoor courtyard. Though their wedding shrunk in size, the day still encompassed the large-scale love between Sarah and Mitchell.

For guests that could not attend, we streamed the wedding and reception so everyone could join virtually. Loved ones flooded into the video stream to wish the couple well on the start of their new life together. This was a great way to let everyone attend, even if they could not be there physically. This has become a popular option for couples who celebrate during this time.

Though events have changed, there are still unique ways to celebrate a wedding. Sara and Mitchell celebrated their boutique wedding in style at Vie with entertainment for BVT Live’s Big Ric Rising. The outdoor courtyard gave them an intimate setting with beautiful decor. The event was elegant, quaint, and full of love. Whether celebrated with many of few, a wedding is about the bride and groom starting a new chapter of their life together. Sara and Mitchell were never worried about “getting through quarantine” together, because they already knew they would be together forever.

In her vows, Sara says, “People keep saying if we can get through quarantine and covid together, we can get through anything. They’re not wrong, but I never had any doubts. To me, there is no one else.” Love can persevere through anything, and we are so happy our Allure Films team captured this milestone for Sara and Mitchell at their boutique wedding.

Congratulations again and mazel tov Sara and Mitchell! We wish you both so many happy days together.

A Wintery Wedding at Hotel Du Pont

July 17, 2020 Hotel DuPont, Wedding Films

 Wilmington, Delaware  | Allure Films

Hotel DuPont WeddingDiana and Curt celebrated their glamorous wedding at Hotel Du Pont in Delaware. Our Allure Films team supplied them with our videography skills to capture their day on film. Now looking back, they can relive all of their beautiful wedding day memories.

At the start of their day, Diana and her bridesmaids began prepping for the event. In matching floral robes, everyone bustled around getting ready for the celebration. Diana’s love of florals showed even more in her gold sparkling and flower print heels. The final step of getting ready is always the most important: the dress. The wedding dress is a seemingless transition from fiancee to bride. With a little help from mom to finish getting the dress on and the veil on her head, Diana was ready.

Before going out to start the ceremony however, Diana’s father came to see her for the first time in her wedding attire. He was all smiles as he saw his daughter for the first time, and seemed to be fighting back some happy tears as well. At the reception, Diana’s father emphasized “Today I did not give my daughter away, I simply walked her down the aisle.” He followed this up by stating that their family welcomed Curt in as the “starting quarterback” to Diana’s team. A wedding is exactly that, a team effort. It is two people merging their families together to create an even better team of support and love.

After being walked down the aisle, Diana met Curt for the start of their ceremony. Hotel Du Pont was beautifully decorated in a wintery theme. Cream colored flowers, evergreen sprigs, and pinecones lined the aisle. Diana’s bridesmaids also wore dark green gowns to match. The venue gave Diana and Curt the perfect backdrop to exchange their vows.

Diana and Curt prepared personal vows to exchange with each other, and both shared a common theme. Curt started saying that he will always be Diana’s happy dancing partner, patient husband, and loyal, faithful, and loving best friend. Diana ended her vows with “and most importantly you’re my best friend in the entire universe.” Each set of vows emphasized what a spouse should be: a best friend.

Finally, the officiant proclaimed Diana and Curt husband and wife.  The two happily made their way back up the aisle to begin their reception. Upon entering, Curt carried Diana through the open doors. Diana cheered and waved her bouquet in the air. The guest clapped for the newlyweds and began the party.

During the reception, BVT Live entertained. Everyone danced with a mixture of smooth and silly moves. Most importantly though, everyone had a great time celebrating Diana and Curt’s special day. Working alongside us, our friends from Philip Gabriel Photography captured amazing photos for the bride and groom. We are so happy that Diana and Curt will be able to look back on their wedding film and photography from this day to relive all of these memories.

Congratulations Curt and Diana! We wish you many more joyful days together. Thank you for choosing us as your wedding videographer. We can’t wait to see where life takes you both!

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.

We have filmed many wedding days over the years at Ellis Preserve, but this one was even more special. We’ve worked alongside Megan, who is the Maitre D for Finley Ballroom, but we finally got to film her own special day. In a beautiful church ceremony, Megan and her fiance, Mike, exchanged their vows to become husband and wife. After, they made their way to Ellis Preserve for their reception.

During this wonderful day, we worked alongside our friend from Baiada Photography. The Ballroom at Ellis Preserve gave us a spectacular backdrop to capture every moment. Masquerade entertained and kept everyone out on the dancefloor to continue the celebration.

During the reception, many people gave speeches about Megan and Mike’s relationship. However, one phrase stood out: “You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because your reality is finally better than your dreams.” Our Allure Films team was so lucky to film such an incredible day for the two.

Megan and Mike, we hope you both have the best life together, and we wish you many more joyful memories. Congratulations again!

Laura and Tyler celebrated their New Year’s celebration a little differently this past year. They gathered their family and friends to bring in the new year and to also help them celebrate their marriage. The two exchanged their vows in a church ceremony, and then traveled to Terrain Gardens for their reception.

Inside, guests signed jenga blocks to help the two “build memories.” From the precise details to the charming venue, Laura and Tyler had a picturesque Terrain wedding day. Our Allure Films team was so grateful to capture so many precious moments.

The best part of the big day, however, was seeing Laura and Tyler’s love for each other. The two couldn’t stop smiling the whole day. They celebrated with their family and friends, dancing the night away. As the clock struck twelve, balloons fell from the ceiling over the reception. Laura and Tyler’s wedding had a little bit of everything, but most importantly, it had love.

We hope you have had a happy new year so far, and continue to have more great years in the future. Congratulations Laura and Tyler!
