Ocean City Yacht Club ReceptionThere’s nothing quite like a wedding on the beach. Jim and Nicole’s wedding needed nothing more than fresh air and a view of the ocean to set the scene. The pair exchanged vows on a dock outside of the Ocean City Yacht Club in Ocean City, New Jersey.

After the ceremony, the newlyweds headed to the Ocean City Yacht Club for their reception. The venue showcased the couple’s love for the beach with nautical decorations and a beach themed wedding cake. While the venue wowed the guests, The Sid Miller Dance Band had everyone out on the dance floor to keep the party going.

Our Allure Films team captured the unique wedding venue and the joyful moments throughout the day. We love being able to film such special memories like speeches from the wedding party and the bride and groom’s first dance. Our partners at Philip Gabriel Photography also joined us by capturing beautiful photos out in the sand.

Congratulations to the beachy, breezy couple, Jim and Nicole! We wish you a lifetime joyful memories.

After celebrating at her Bat Mitzvah service, Mackenzie, family, and friends retreated to The Queen, in Wilmington. Our partners Flowers by Yukie beautifully transformed the venue for an eventful night.

So many people came to celebrate Mackenzie’s day with her and looked upon her with pride. Her parents, especially, admired their daughter’s maturity and perseverance. Her father recounted all of the hard work Mackenzie put in and said it was one of the proudest days of his life.

Mackenzie, in return, honored her family and close friends by inviting them to join her for the candle lighting ceremony. At the end of the ceremony, Mackenzie thanked her parents for being her biggest supporters and always standing by her. Our Allure Films team was thankful to be able to capture such touching moments.

More festivities ensued as the night went on. especially with the help of Hot Hot Hot Entertainment’s MC Anthony.

Hotel Monaco WeddingWhile weddings are about joining a couple as one, they are also about joining two families together. Harlee and Ryan had an elegant ceremony at the Hotel Monaco and celebrated with family and friends at their reception at the Cescaphe Ballroom.

At the hotel, the couple exchanged vows in one of the Hotel Monaco’s beautiful ballrooms. With the elegant chandeliers and architecture, it is a wonderful place for a wedding.

After filming the wedding, our crew at Allure Films captured speeches from the bride’s father and brother during the reception. Her brother knew Ryan was right for Harlee when Ryan became her number one protector over him. Though it was a hard role to pass on, her brother knew Ryan was the right one for it.

During Harlee’s father’s speech, he toasted to the foundations of marriage: family, friends, fortune, and fertility. Not only were the two families combined that day, but they wanted to grow as well.

We are always grateful to work a wedding with our partners. Our partners at Baida Photography helped photograph the happy couple’s big day. EBE’s Dreamtime also entertained the crowd and had the newly joined families dancing through the night. We were all grateful to help the newlyweds celebrate their special day.

Mazel tov Harlee and Ryan! We wish you endless memories together.

Hard Rock Riviera Maya WeddingWhile capturing weddings is always special, it is even more of a privilege to get to work for friends in the business. As one of our spectacular partners, we were touched when Vito asked our crew to document his wedding. Luckily for us, it was easy to capture the fun and love in the air at their Hard Rock Riviera Maya wedding.

Nothing would capture Vito and Bill’s personalities quite like an over the top beachside wedding. Complete with a glowing dance floor and giant “V” and “B” lit up letters, the wedding turned into quite the party. Hard Rock Riviera Maya gave the couple the perfect space for their dream wedding. As the day turned into night, the newlyweds joyfully celebrated with family and friends.

Our crew at Allure Films filmed the day for our friends’ beachside wedding. Vito and Bill also asked our partners at Pictures by Todd to photograph their big day. They captured beautiful and breezy photos of our happy couple enjoying their day in the sun.

The two truly do fit perfectly, like Legos, as they both joked about in their vows. While we have known Vito and Bill over the last few years, their friends statements truly showcased the love between them. We are honored to capture their wedding and get to see our friends start the beginning of their life as a married couple.

Here’s to a lifelong adventure for our friends, the happy couple! Congratulations Vito and Bill!

Golden Gates Restaurant WeddingCelebrating just north of Philadelphia at the Golden Gates Restaurant, Lauren and Mitchell’s wedding showcased a perfect mix of elegant and show stopping. Always masters of creation, Evantine Design created a glamorous scene that transferred from service to reception. With the white of the flowers and Lauren’s dress, the the decorations seem to glow in the lights of the reception.

Even with all of the exciting effects, nothing outshone the bride and groom’s romantic sparks. Friends and family gave speeches and kind words about the couple’s connection and their newly joined families. During a toast, Lauren’s best friend gives a touching sentiment about how Mitchell looks at Lauren like “she is the most beautiful woman in the world.”

The always exemplary crew from Philip Gabriel Photography captured this sentiment with some beautiful moments in front of Philadelphia’s City Hall. Our partners always do a phenomenal job photographing the love between couples, an they surely did for Lauren and Mitchell. While our partners photographed the wedding, the Allure Films team captured the rest of the day on video for even more memories.

After cutting the cake, the newlyweds and guests danced the night away thanks to Golden Gates’ band and dance floor. Our crew couldn’t have been luckier to capture this couple’s spark.

Bellevue Philadelphia WeddingNothing beats a classic, romantic love story. From the charming wedding ceremony to a glamorous reception at The Bellevue in Center City Philadelphia, Michelle and Evan’s wedding perfectly encapsulated their story.

Michelle didn’t realize their first movie together was a date, but Evan used his charm from day one to woo his bride-to-be. The spontaneous dates and immediate spark gave the couple an unbeatable connection that led to their romantic wedding day.

Our friends at Lamsback Floral Decorations did an amazing job setting the perfect scene for the happy couple’s big day. The elegant chuppah added to the beauty of the touching ceremony.

With such stunning scenery, it wasn’t hard for the Phillip Gabriel Photography crew to capture the day right alongside the Allure Films team. They did a great job photographing the couple and the joyful guests throughout the day.

The pair seems to glow in their love at the ceremony, and that glow turns to electricity on the dance floor at the reception. Family members and friends watched the happy couple as they danced their first dance to celebrate their future together. To tug at our heartstrings more, Evan’s brother recounted a story about how Evan told him how lucky he is to have Michelle, from the very first day they met.

A Down Town Club Wedding With Some Harry Potter Magic

Jun

2018

 

Allison had only known Ross for about two weeks before telling him that she was leaving for Kenya to finish up some research. Ross was not about to give up and let this amazing woman slip out of his life. When you find “the one,” you can’t let them get away! Ross booked the first flight to a continent he had never been to just to see Allison and the rest was history. Just a few years later the couple said “I do” at Philadelphia’s Down Town Club

If we could describe Allison & Ross’s wedding in one word, it would be “magical!” Allison and Ross got married on a day when the city looked like a winter wonderland. The Allure Films crew started our day documenting the couple’s wedding prep at the lovely Hotel Monaco. Following the wedding prep, our crew got to film (here comes that word again)  “magical” moments of the couple meeting each other outside as snow was falling from the sky. Ralph Deal Photography took some beautiful photos of the couple together during this time as well. It is always an honor and a blast working with this photographer!

Both the ceremony and the reception were held at the Down Town Club. The decor at the reception will make Harry Potter fans geek out when they see it in the wedding preview. The guest table seating cards were themed off of the sorting houses at Hogwarts. Instead of opting for tradition floral centerpieces, there were golden replicas of the whomping willow trees with tiny lanterns on the branches. And how about that wedding cake decked with a super cool flying dragon detail?! As the night went on there was lots of dancing to popular tunes spun by BVT Live‘s DJ Gaetano Basco.

Allison & Ross, may your future as husband and wife be filled with plenty of love, magic, laughter and Happily Ever After!

A Wonderful Winter Wedding At The Atrium At The Curtis Center

May

2018

Everyone loves the classic love story of a cheerleader and a football player falling head-over-heels for each other. Abby & Tommy’s story is sort of like that. While one might assume the two met on the football field, the twist is the two met while working at State Farm. Who’da thunk it?!

As filmmakers, we love capturing the pre-ceremony prep portion of the big day. While the bride and groom are getting ready, they’ll usually read letters dedicated to their soon-to-be spouse and open gifts from one another. We love the thought that went behind Abby’s unique gift to Tommy: an antique 1948 Pennsylvania Railroad Conductors watch! In her letter to Tommy, Abby wrote, “I thought it was the perfect gift because I hope that with each tick our love continues to grow stronger.” How can that not pull on your heartstrings?! We also dare you not to shed a tear as Tommy’s daughter reads her special letter written for her.

Abby & Tommy exchanged their vows before friends and family at Cescaphe’s Atrium at the Curtis Center. Beautiful Blooms designed all of the beautiful floral arrangements seen at the wedding, from the bridal party bouquets to the flower arch at the altar.

Aside from the Allure Films crew being their to document the big day on film, photographer Susan Stripling was there to capture all of the moments inside, as well as outdoors against the romantic, snowy backdrop in Rittenhouse Square. It’s always a great time working with Susan!

The reception was truly a celebration consisting of a great meal, speeches and music performed by BVTLive’s Jellyroll. As dog lovers ourselves, we also loved the incredible ice sculpture modeled after Abby & Tommy’s beloved Weimaraner, Norman.

Congratulations Abby & Tommy! Here’s to an amazing future together.

Take a sneak peek at the happy couple’s Atrium at the Curtis Center wedding video, captured by Allure Films:

Amy & Scott Crystal Tea Room Wedding VideoAs we enter into the summer wedding season, it is important that we do not forget some of the beautiful weddings of couples who were married in the winter. Amy & Scott’s romantic winter wedding is definitely one for the books, and Allure Films had a blast capturing every second of it!

The two were married in a traditional Catholic ceremony held at St. John the Evangelist before heading over to the reception that followed at Finley Catering’s Crystal Tea Room. Evantine Design created all the beautiful floral arrangements and décor seen throughout the ballroom, which perfectly complemented the stunning chandeliers and soaring ceilings. As our crew was filming throughout the day, Alison Conklin was also there to photograph all the incredible moments and scenery from beginning to end.

EBE’s band Dreamtime had everyone busting a move on the dance floor, including the youngest members of the bridal party: the adorable flower girls and ring bearer. Aside from dancing the night away, everyone was treated to a delicious meal and touching speeches dedicated to the couple of the day.

Amy & Scott, we wish both the absolute best and a lifetime of happiness together!
