The City of Brotherly Love felt like the Big Easy on Theresa & Bret’s wedding day!
Theresa & Bret were married in a beautiful ceremony held at the Liberty View Ballroom of Philadelphia’s Independence Visitor Center. Although the couple currently reside in the Greater Philadelphia area, it was important to the couple that they incorporate the wedding traditions from Bret’s hometown of New Orleans into their special day. The team from Allure Films was happy to capture every last detail on film.
The Independence National Historical Park felt like the French Quarter when Theresa & Ben twirled their parasols in the air, leading a “Second Line parade” to the Ballroom at the Ben after exchanging their vows. A Second Line parade is a New Orleans wedding custom: traditionally, the “first line” consists of the wedding party and a brass band, while the rest of the wedding guests create a “second line” of revelers whipping their handkerchiefs in celebration. Not only was this a sight to see, but the band was fantastic!
Just like the first half of Theresa & Bret’s wedding, the reception at the Ballroom at the Ben was nothing short of sensational. The ballroom was completely adorned in gorgeous floral arrangements and table centerpieces by the talented artists of Lamsback Floral Decorators. Guests were served cocktails, appetizers, and a delicious main course prepared by the awesome culinary team at Finley Catering. After the couple’s first dance, the dance floor was filled with everyone moving to the tunes of yesterday and today performed by EBE’s Milan 77.
Congratulations Theresa & Bret. As they say in N’awlins “Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler!” Translation: Let the good times roll!
The Allure Films team enjoyed being a part of Amanda and Michael’s special day. From the first reveal to the first dance, there were so many unforgettable moments with our bride and groom. It was great to document them in several scenic spots around Philadelphia.
Guests enjoyed being a part of Amanda and Michael’s big day! EBE’s Rio had everyone dancing from beginning to end! We were thrilled to be a part of this beautiful Philadelphia wedding.
Congratulations, Amanda and Michael, and thank you for inviting us to capture your wedding day on film. We hope you enjoy this sneak peek into their breathtakingly romantic day:
Allure Films was dazzled by Amy and Jason’s Ballroom At The Ben wedding. Carl Alan Floral Design did an amazing job transforming this already beautiful space into a jaw dropping background fit for royalty…or for a couple as lovely as Mr. and Mrs. Weiss!
We love shooting at this venue because of its sky-high ceilings, stunning chandeliers, and European atmosphere. You may recognize the venue from the final scenes of “Silver Linings Playbook,” but we’ll forever remember it as the place where Amy and Jason said “I Do!”
After the happy couple’s touching First Look, they stepped into the ballroom to exchange their vows. There was hardly a dry eye in the building as they expressed their love for each other under the chuppah.
While guests enjoyed cocktail hour, the ballroom was magically rearranged into the reception hall, where everyone enjoyed delicious food and plenty of dancing all night long.
Enjoy this sneak peek into Amy and Jason’s big day, and watch the Ballroom At The Ben transform before your very eyes:
We were so thrilled to be a part of such a great wedding! Congrats Amy and Jason!
We were thrilled when we were asked to document Ehren and Scott’s wedding day. It is always an honor to be a part of such a special and unforgettable day.
We were even more excited that Ehren and Scott’s big day took place at Ballroom at The Ben. This extraordinary and elegant venue leaves us speechless every single time. The entire Finley Catering team is just incredible to work with, and they played a big part in Ehren and Scott’s celebration.
This wedding had everything; fine dining, the perfect atmosphere, and of course, dancing! BVT Live! – Sid Miller Dance Band was there to keep the party going as everyone hit the dance floor. What an amazing day! We were so lucky to be a part of it all.
Congrats Ehren and Scott, from the entire Allure Films team!
Laura and David, thank you for allowing us to be a part of your wedding day! We were glad to be a part of your big celebration at Ballroom at The Ben. The breathtaking decor by Beautiful Blooms was surely a sight to see. Allure Films enjoyed capturing your fun and loving moments as the day unfolded. We must say, you guys sure do know how to dance (especially some of the kiddos)! Asya Photography and The Franklin & Alison Orchestra were also a part of all the magic. Please enjoy this preview from Laura and David’s big day. Congrats newlyweds, from all of us at Allure Films.
