A Scenic Outdoor Ceremony at The Logan

The Logan HotelSurrounded by their biggest supporters, Michael and Heather got married at The Logan Hotel in Philadelphia. In an outdoor ceremony with lush grass, fountains. and flowers, Michael and Heather tied the knot.

Before joining together as husband and wife, each of them was fiercely loyal in their friendships. In the Maid of Honor’s speech, she told of Heather’s unyielding friendship and support throughout the years. The Best Man also spoke about Michael’s continuous support and how much of his best traits reflect in Heather. By enhancing their best qualities in each other, Heather and Michael found a love that will last forever.

After the ceremony, the crowd enjoyed a cocktail hour in the candlelit courtyard area. They then filtered into the connected Ballroom for the rest of the night. During the reception, The Eddie Bruce Orchestra entertained and had guests dancing the whole night.

An Outdoor Wedding at Ridley Creek State Park

February 21, 2019 Outdoor Locations, Wedding Films

Outdoor weddings always come with a risk in the weather, but if you’re lucky, your wedding can fall on a gorgeous day. Hayley and Alex celebrated their outdoor wedding at the Parque at Ridley Creek. Tucked back in the woods, this scenic venue allots for a background of natural foliage. A reflecting pond and sprawling gardens surround the historic Hunting Hill Mansion. When exchanging vows, sunlight shone through the trees onto the loving couple.

After the ceremony, everyone relocated into the mansion for the reception. Alex and Hayley shared their first dance, and Alex picked up his wife and spun her around. Their first dance showed that they care for each other while also having fun together. Both of them could not stop grinning the whole day, excited to start their lives together. Inside and out, Susan Beard Design did a wonderful job photographing the scenes at the Parque at Ridley Creek.

We were so happy that Hayley and Alex gave us the opportunity to shoot their wedding. It was effortless to capture the love between these two, and we’re grateful to give them these memories on film.

Congratulations Hayley and Alex! We wish you many more happy days together.

A Picturesque Outdoor Setting For Anya & Russell’s Wedding Day

Anya & Russell Appleford Estate Wedding VideoThere’s nothing like an Appleford Estate wedding!

Just a few months ago, Anya and Russell said “I do” outside on the grounds of the picturesque arboretum, filled with boxwood gardens and blossoming trees. Anya happens to be part of the Philip Gabriel Photography team, so you can just imagine how ecstatic her coworkers were when Russell popped the question.

If you have been keeping up with our blog, you know that the Allure Films crew is no stranger to working alongside our friends at Philip Gabriel Photography. To simply say we felt honored when Anya and Russell asked us to film their wedding, would be a complete understatement.

For most brides, that short walk down the aisle with their father is a beautiful moment that goes by so fast but one they will never forget, and this definitely rings true for Anya. Anya was born in Ukraine and moved to the United States with her mother and brother when she was 10.

The bride had only seen her father a total of three times since moving to America, and it meant the world to her to have her father present to give her away. Without a secured Visa, Anya was concerned that her father would not be able to be there for her big day. Alas, the stars aligned and Anya’s father was able to be there!

Thanks to Sarah and her team from All About Events, Anya and Russell’s wedding day went off without a hitch on the day they got hitched! Petah Bashano was the visionary behind the couple’s wedding décor of beautiful and exotic dark teal floral arrangements.

The talented performers of BVTLive’s Dream Time provided the beautiful music for the ceremony and cocktail hour that followed. Anya and Russell exchanged vows before friends and family in an interfaith ceremony officiated by Julie Cassidy, Owner and Wedding Officiant of Storied Celebrations.

The couples’ vows to one another were very unique and personal, and even gained a few laughs when Anya vowed to support Russ “even if that means rooting for the Giants and the Yankees…occasionally.”

The celebration continued with a beautiful semi-outdoor reception consisting of a wonderful meal catered by John Serock Catering, and dancing, lots of dancing. DJ Steve Croce of Silver Sound Entertainment played amazing tunes throughout the evening. Anya’s boss Gabe, Philip Gabriel Photography’s owner, even put the camera down for a moment to bust a move! We know this was a day the couple will never forget.

Anya and Russell, we wish you the best and this is only the beginning of a lifetime of happiness!

Fall In Love With Allie & Dan’s Springton Manor Wedding

Springton Manor Farm WeddingFor Allie & Dan, the little beach town of Avalon, New Jersey is more than just a place where they spend their summers soaking up the sun. It’s where they met each other and found their soulmate for life.

Five years ago, Allie met Dan at a party in Avalon, and from that moment on the pair were inseparable. Recently, the couple started a new chapter together by officially tying the knot and becoming husband and wife.

The bride and groom were married in a lovely Catholic ceremony at St. Patrick’s in Malvern, PA. The space was filled with beautiful floral arrangements by Tish Long.

Do any of Allie’s bridesmaids look familiar? That’s because Allure Films bride Meggie happens to be Allie’s sister and bridesmaid! As a filmmaker, it is a very unique experience when we are asked to document the different weddings of siblings within the same family. Photographer David Campli of Campli Photography was also there to capture all those amazing moments throughout the day.

The wedding ceremony was followed by a relaxing outdoor cocktail hour held at Springton Manor Farm. During cocktail hour the couple’s guests were able to drink, mingle, and take in the beautiful scenery of the property before sitting down for a delicious main course catered by J. Scott Catering. Everyone at the reception was on their feet the whole night dancing to an incredible set by the band The Heartbeats.

Allie & Dan, here’s to a lifetime of love, happiness & sharing unforgettable summers down the shore together!

Sparks Flew & Fires Danced At This Phoenixville Foundry Wedding

Heather-Anne & Jules Phoenixville Foundry wedding videoFor Heather-Anne and Jules’ wedding, the Allure Films crew found ourselves back at the Phoenixville Foundry for an evening of love, laughter and fire dancing. That’s right, fire dancing!

Aside from each other, this bride and groom share a passion for fire dancing. Talk about upping the entertainment ante for your guests! We bet it was the first time many of the couple’s guests got to enjoy such riveting acts at a wedding. It was such a privilege for both our filmmakers and for the photographers from Philip Gabriel Photography to capture these amazing performances.

The wedding began with the couple’s non-clergy ceremony before their friends and family in the venue’s lovely Sculpture Garden. The Foundry’s Sculpture Garden provides a perfect ambiance for an outdoor sunset ceremony. For those who don’t know, a non-clergy wedding is when the bride and groom officiate their own marriage without a third party clergy member. This allowed for the bride and groom’s vows to be truly their own, giving them the chance to reflect on their love and devotion to one another.

We also want to give an honorable mention to the bridal party’s twist on the traditional bouquet. Instead of holding a full floral bouquet, the bride walked down the aisle holding a lantern that lit her way, designed in collaboration with the couple’s floral designer Carl Alan Designs. Truly a unique touch!

At the reception, the dance floor of the Phoenixville Foundry’s Cupola Ballroom was packed thanks to fabulous music by the Silver Sound Entertainment. To close the celebration, Heather-Anne and Jules had surprised their guests with the perfect ending to their big night with a beautiful firework display. This was truly a wedding full of sparks in every sense of the word.

Congratulations Heather-Anne and Jules, and here’s to a lifetime together filled with love and adventure!
