The grand ballroom was the perfect location for the reception, filled with flowers by Carry Fabuflorals and decorated by All About Events.

Nothing is more lovely than a traditional wedding with a joyful ceremony. The Saint Peter and Paul Basilica Cathedra and The Union League in Philadelphia was the location that Jennifer and Nick selected for their conventional wedding ceremony. Their wedding was classy and traditional. The two were surrounded by friends and family as they exchanged vows and received the title of husband and wife. Jennifer and Nick captured some traditional Philly wedding photos after the ceremony. One of our favorite sites in these vintage photos is city hall. City Hall is a beautiful location for wedding photos at any time of day. The city lights make for great midnight shots of a pair.
Following the wedding, Jennifer and Nick traveled to the Union League with relatives and friends for a wonderful celebration. The Union League provides a variety of event spaces to accommodate wedding parties and events of all sizes. When the Union League of Philadelphia was founded in 1862 as a patriotic club to support the Union and President Abraham Lincoln’s policies, it laid the intellectual framework for subsequent Union Leagues across a country torn apart by civil war. Throughout the Civil War, the League has proudly backed American troops in every battle and has hosted American presidents, chiefs of state, business leaders, celebrities, and dignitaries from around the world. The Union League’s initial motto, Eros Patriae Ducit, or Love of Country Leads, still serves as its compass.
Lincoln Hall was the venue of choice for Jennifer and Nick’s celebration. The dress code for weddings at Union League in Philadelphia is typically black tie. The Lincoln Hall Ballroom is a magnificent space with elaborate ceilings and walls that can hold up to 400 guests. One of the most amazing features of this venue is how beautiful it is—you don’t even need a lot of decorations to make it feel magnificent. It has grand chandeliers, tall ceilings, and wall artwork with traditional portraits of former presidents. All of the presidents of the League are represented in portraits in Lincoln Hall, which is thought of as a portrait gallery showcasing over 100 years of portraiture, primarily by Philadelphia artists.
All of their loved ones joined Jennifer and Nick as they danced the night away. Jennifer’s mother, best friend, and Nick’s best man all gave speeches. The speeches honoring Jennifer and Nick’s union were sincere and heartfelt.
Our Allure Films team was thrilled to be a part of the love that permeated this memorable day.
Again, congrats to Jennifer and Nick! A lifetime of joy and love is what we wish for you.

Jennifer and Nick danced the night away with help from all of their loved ones. Speeches were made by Jennifer’s mother and best friend, along with Nick’s best man. The speeches were heartfelt and genuine, celebrating the union of Jennifer and Nick.

The Phoenixville Foundry is a favorite spot to shoot weddings at Allure Films because of the variety of shots we can get of the bride and groom on property. The venue also recently won an Editor’s Choice Award from Philly Weddings because of its stellar customer service and stunning location. The gorgeous venue is just a short drive away from Philadelphia in Chester County. The short yet scenic drive through hilly green suburbs is a great way to start your guest’s day as they arrive at the Phoenixville Foundry. Allure Films has had years of experience shooting at this venue, and we are proud to be a Phoenixville Foundry wedding videographer!
Historic Phoenixville Foundry
The Foundry was built in the late 1800s and was used by the Phoenix Iron & Steel Company in its early days. Being built along the French Creek, the Foundry offers lush green views and rustic pieces hinting at the original use of the building. The grounds offer 18,000 square feet of space to capture the perfect clips to create your wedding day video.
As time went on, the Foundry was no longer needed. Thankfully the town realized the historical significance and beauty of the location. They have done a great job keeping up the building and surrounding area over the years. Recently in 2006, the Hankin Real Estate Group took over the Phoenixville Foundry and designed an event space to mix modern decor with touches of the past.
The deeply rooted history of the Phoenixville Foundry is obvious in the architecture of the venue as it brings in the charm of rustic steel and stone. It is easy to feel romantic in a space that is bathed in warm, natural light. The sun streams in from the large paned windows over the course of the day. With many different spaces in the venue, the Foundry offers a versatile space to design your perfect day. A customizable experience allows you to create your dream wedding to remember for a lifetime.
Phoenixville Foundry has two separate indoor event spaces to choose from, plus plenty of outdoor space to explore as well. The abundance of different backgrounds makes for an exceptional wedding day video. With a variety of shots in the final product, your guests are sure to be wowed!
West Wing Ballroom
A popular choice for your wedding is the West Wing Ballroom. This ballroom holds enough space for up to 275 seated guests. The ballroom has elements of wood and rust and has simple tan painted walls. This offers a neutral palette allowing you to add your wedding decor without worrying about it being too busy.
The high open style ceiling exposes the intricate steel truss work overhead, with long columns of light raining down beautifully into the room. Large windows brighten up the room with warm natural light. Each window also has a curtain, allowing you to control the amount of light you want throughout the day.
The center of the room can be opened up for use as a dance floor, and the front of the room has a small stage with audiovisual connections provided for use as well. If you choose the West Wing Ballroom for your wedding reception, you are also able to use the private entrance and restrooms for this space.

Cupola Ballroom & Mezzanine
This grand ballroom offers 8,100 square feet of space and was named after one of the two original cupola furnaces. This ballroom can hold up to 180 guests for a ceremony. But, when combined with the West Wing Ballroom you can have up to 400 guests at your Phoenixville Foundry wedding.
The main highlights of the Cupola Ballroom are the gorgeous grand foyer and sweeping double staircase that leads up to the mezzanine. Your first entrance as Mr. & Mrs. is sure to be grand walking down the elegant staircase! Tall ceilings stretch 60 feet up and you get excellent views of the dining space from the above mezzanine. The mezzanine is the perfect spot for a cocktail ceremony or cake cutting. The space itself is flexible and will accommodate almost any table set up or staging.

Phoenixville Foundry also has a special event kitchen located behind the scenes. This allows for staff and caterers to set up without getting in the way of guests. The mezzanine level also offers a private suite for bridal parties, performers, or planners to get ready or touch up throughout the day. The Cupola Ballroom has an audiovisual set up and high-speed internet to go along with the built-in 24×30 foot dance floor.
Another great spot for entertaining at the Phoenixville Foundry is the West Patio. Sitting off of the West Wing Ballroom, the patio is a great addition to your reception to create an indoor and outdoor space for your guests. It also offers another beautiful photo and video taking spot with the brick patio and trellis garden.
The Sculpture Garden is one of two outdoor event spaces up for use for your Phoenixville Foundry wedding. This spot holds up to 400 guests and can be used for a ceremony or outdoor reception. Fire pits dot the space to keep your guests warm as they celebrate all night long!
The Sculpture Garden is lined with large steel poles and an intricate pergola as a centerpiece. The outdoor spot is surrounded by bright greenery and healthy trees for a natural vibe and open skies. The combination of indoor and outdoor shots in your wedding day video makes for a great variety in the final product!
Lastly, the column truss bridge is another great spot to shoot your wedding day video or capture a few photos at the Phoenixville Foundry. Take your wedding party around the two acres of greenery to take a breath of fresh air on your big day and grab some incredible photos.
The lush greens surrounding the wooden bridge make it a popular spot to gather. Steel beams reach up and surround the bridge to offer a naturally framed photo of the newlyweds. The bridge has lights that dot the top of the steel beams. This allows you to capture outdoor photos night or day! The Covered Bridge is the perfect spot to escape and capture a memory at your Phoenixville Foundry wedding.
The great part about the Phoenixville Foundry is the ability to mix and match spaces to create your ideal indoor and outdoor ceremony and reception. Don’t be afraid to get creative with your event space! Of course, this all depends on the number of guests attending and the weather of your wedding day.

The Logan Hotel Wedding Celebration
Throughout the last year, we have experienced quite a few micro weddings because of the pandemic. Though small, micro weddings are still just as elegant as full-sized celebrations. This rings true especially if you celebrate at a place like the Logan Hotel. Caset and Daniel, with a guest list under fifteen people, celebrated their big day at The Logan’s courtyard.
The Set Up
The Logan’s courtyard is an always popular choice for wedding ceremonies. The serene water feature and manicured grounds create the perfect setup for a wedding. In the center of the courtyard, two rows of white chairs lined a grassy aisle. Along the aisle, white flower petals were strewn with care to create the walkway. At the end of the aisle, Casey and Daniel’s chuppah stood tall. The chuppah, fully covered in elegant white flowers, set the scene for their wedding day. With decor from Jamie Rothstein Their stylish decor and The Logan’s ambiance took the small wedding to the next level.
Before the Ceremony
Before making their way to the ceremony, Casey and Daniel shared a first look atop The Logan at the Assembly Rooftop Bar. On the rooftop, Casey, made her way to her soon-to-be groom. They shared a touching moment as they saw each other for the first time on their wedding day. The rooftop proved to be an excellent choice for this, with stunning views all around. Even with the views though, the two could only focused their looks on each other. After their first look, Baiada photography snapped some photos of the eager couple.
With the Philadelphia skyline behind them, Casey and Daniel shared a kiss by the rooftop’s edge. They also posed on one of the lounge’s couches, with towering skyscrapers as their backdrop. Casey and Daniel could not ask for a more picturesque backdrop for their wedding photos. After their pre-celebration together, the two made their way downstairs for the main event.
Back down at The Logan’s courtyard, the two made their grand entrances. From one side of the courtyard, Daniel’s parents walked him toward the end of the aisle. Emerging from the other side, arm in arm with her parents, Casey made her way to her groom. They grinned at each other through their vows, Each shared personalized vows about their bond. Daniel said it best, “Life is an adventure and ours is only in the early stages.”
After their beautiful ceremony, the Casey and Daniel continued their celebration into the night. Jamie Rothstein Floral decorated their wedding table with a plethora of white flowers and candles. The table could fit most of the guests since the list was so condensed. They shared drinks and food in the courtyard, while EBE Talent entertained nearby.
