Brielle and Chuck celebrated a beautiful Bellevue Hotel wedding. Arrangements Unlimited crafted a beautiful chuppah for them, covered in white, pink, and yellow flowers. After the ceremony, Brielle and Chuck enjoyed a cocktail hour, followed by the reception in the Bellevue’s main ballroom.
At the reception, Brielle and Chuck had an effortless first dance. After, their family and friends joined them together for the Hora where the energy picked up, with help from BVT Live’s Eddie Bruce Orchestra. We were so grateful to film such a fun-filled day for Brielle and Chuck. We worked alongside Phil Kramer and his team who photographed the big day.
From the bride’s dress, to the beautiful venue, to the impressive cake, the whole day was filled with elegance and glamour. Most importantly, though, we could feel the love between Brielle and Chuck on their special day. Our Allure Films team was so grateful to film this wedding.
Mazel Tov to the happy couple! We wish you many more exciting days together.
Are you searching for the perfect place to host your wedding ceremony and reception, all in one convenient (and gorgeous!) location? The Ritz Carlton Hotel in Philadelphia just might be the venue of your dreams.
Hillary Gordon and Andy Apfelbaum fell in love with The Ritz’s exquisite Grand Ballroom and perfect location right in the heart of Center City. Just seconds away from City Hall, The Ritz is a celebrated and newly renovated hotel with amazing vistas and beautiful architecture that makes for great backdrops for wedding day photographs.
Allure Films was there to record every breathtaking moment during Hillary and Andy’s wedding day. The creative visionaries of the Evantine Design team were responsible for transforming the Grand Ballroom from an intimate and romantic ceremony venue to a beautiful dining and dancing space in an instant.
Imagine the guests’ surprise when they stepped out of the Grand Ballroom for cocktail hour, only to be led right back into the same room for the reception which now looked completely different! We loved catching their faces on film as their jaws dropped in amazement.
EBE’s Dreamtime took charge of packing the dance floor with the guests and wedding party, including the adorable flower girls and ring bearers. In addition to the celebrated first dance and hora, Allure Films was able to document the traditional Mezinke dance, the crowning ceremony honoring the bride’s parents for marrying off their last child.
Congratulations and Mazol Tov Mr. and Mrs. Apfelbaum! Here’s to many more years of love and happiness!
While 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.
While 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!
Celebrating 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.
Congratulations Lauren and Mitchell! We wish you a lifetime of laughter and happiness.
Nothing 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.
As 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!
Take a sneak peek at the happy couple’s beautiful Crystal Tea Room wedding video:
After being together for “four years, nine weeks, three days and 19 hours,” Meagan & Michael finally tied the knot before friends and family at the Union League of Philadelphia.
Our filmmakers were there from the beginning to document the preparation before the ceremony, and the stunning footage kept rolling all the way to the end of the reception. Our friends at Philip Gabriel Photography were there to get great shots of Meagan & Michael in front of City Hall and the Art Museum, along with indoor shots of the couple in the Union League’s Four-Diamond hotel The Inn.
Michael’s son stood by his side serving as his father’s best man, while Meagan’s sister served as her Maid-of-Honor and walked her down the aisle. At the end of the night, Meagan & Michael – who are known as “M&M” – cut into an adorable wedding cake featuring a bride and groom M&M cartoon candy wedding topper. The newlyweds loved it just as much as their guests did!
Congratulations Meagan & Michael, and may all your days, weeks, months and years together be filled with a tremendous amount of love! Thank you for allowing the Allure Films team to capture your stunning wedding at the Union League!
You could say our Allure Films crew was blinded by science and love on Nikki & Jordan’s wedding day. Not everyone gets to marry the love of their life under a sky full of stars and a full moon, but at the Franklin Institute, anything is possible!
It was quite the experience for our team to document the couple’s wedding ceremony in the Franklin Institute’s Fels Planetarium. This particular ceremony was unique in many ways other than the awe-inspiring location. The bride and groom’s sweet vows to each other incorporated their Jewish and Gaelic heritages, and it was clear that they were truly written from the heart.
The ceremony was followed by a cocktail hour in the museum’s Electricity exhibit, where wedding guests noshed on incredible bites catered by Frog Commissary. This cocktail hour was an equally “electrifying” experience for our filmmakers and the guests – friends and family watched in amazement as they literally lit up the sustainable dance floor with their moves!
This is one of the things that we love the most about one-of-a-kind venues like the Franklin Institute. We’re big fans of spaces that engage guests, allowing them to feel like they are a part of the big day in more ways than as just a spectator. At the Franklin Institute, Nikki and Jordan’s friends and family were able to participate in activities that were fun, educational, and exciting as they wandered the halls during cocktail hour.
Carl Alan Floral Design was behind all of the stunning floral arrangements, from the bride’s bouquet, to the table centerpieces and more! For the reception, we joined the guests in Ben Franklin Memorial room, where the infamous Founding Father himself looked on as everyone danced the night away in celebration thanks to great sound provided by Synergetic Sound.
Congratulations Nikki & Jordan, and best wishes for a fun-filled future together!
You know that old saying, “Opposites attract?” Well that statement definitely holds truth when it comes to describing Lindsay & Daniel. According to Lindsay’s sister Shelby “Lindsay is the small East Coast vegetarian who is the perfect complement to Dan, a tall, blonde-haired, football- and steak-loving Texan.” Clearly, they are a match made in heaven!
After meeting in Seattle six years ago, Lindsay & Daniel headed back East and teamed up with Lauren James Events to plan what was to be an unforgettable wedding held at The Logan in Philadelphia.
The Allure Films crew arrived at the hotel to capture the heartwarming exchange between the bride and groom during their First Look. There’s nothing like documenting a First Look between the bride and groom before their wedding, and thanks to the magic of film, Lindsay & Daniel can press the rewind button on this moment for the rest of their lives. Cliff Mautner Photography was also on hand to get stunning images from the entire day.
It’s always amazing to see everyone come together to transform a hotel ballroom from a space fit for a ceremony to a space fit for a reception. Jamie Rothstein Floral & Event Design were the creative visionaries behind all of the wedding décor elements. We were in awe of the couple’s ivory floral-adorned chuppah.
The reception was a big celebration filled with plenty of great speeches and friends and family dancing to Starlight Music. The dance floor was packed the whole night, and everyone had a blast, including the happy couple.
Mazel Tov Lindsay & Daniel, and here’s to a lifetime of lots of love and happiness!
