kimmel centerJames and Kara dated for four years before tieing the knot at the Kimmel Center. Together, they read each other personalized vows. James chose a poem for Kara, mixed with funny anecdotes and heartfelt thoughts. James wrapped up his vows by saying, “Kara you mean everything in the world to me, you complete my life, it’s time to end this poem, so I can finally call you my wife.”

Their ceremony had many touching moments. Family members took turns wishing them well and helping to join them together. Holding back tears, Kara’s brother and best friend officially pronounced them husband and wife.  In between the ceremony and reception, the Kimmel Center transformed for the reception. All About Events made sure that everything went smoothly and beautifully for the happy couple. We also worked with Emily Wren Photography who helped capture this special day. For entertainment, BVT Live’s Jellyroll also performed at the reception. The loving atmosphere and excellent music kept everyone together on the dancefloor.

Our Allure Films team was so grateful to be a part of James and Kara’s day at the Kimmel Center.  We hope every day is filled with happiness and love. Congratulation Kara and James!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Here’s to Michelle and Evan!

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!

Morgan and Ben tied the knot in front of their friends and loved ones, who filled every pew of the stunning The National Shrine of Saint Rita’s of Cascia. It’s been a while since we’ve been to this gorgeous chapel, and it proved to be the perfect setting for the happy couple to exchange their vows.

After saying “I Do”, Morgan and Ben led their guests up Broad Street to the Grand Ballroom of downtown Philadelphia’s iconic and historic Hyatt at the Bellevue. The Hyatt at the Bellevue is conveniently located in the heart of Philadelphia, on a section of Broad known as the Avenue of the Arts. Its convenient location allows for incredible photo and video opportunities, and Allure Films knows of several places nearby to get the perfect shot in front of some of the city’s most well-known landmarks.

Lamsback Floral Decorators were the designers of the beautiful ivory floral arrangements that were the perfect compliment to the couple’s classic black and white style wedding. The couple’s wedding photographer, Philip Gabriel Photography, was able to get some fun and romantic shots of both the whole wedding party and just the couple themselves. The Eddie Bruce Orchestra provided the musical entertainment that had everyone dancing the night away!

Congratulations Morgan and Ben, and here’s to continuing to build a beautiful life together!

You’ll Fall In Love With This Stunning Rittenhouse Hotel Wedding

2017

Brittany and David’s wedding was a day filled with love, laughter and plenty of Penn Pride!

As young college freshman at the University of Pennsylvania, Brittany and David were introduced to an education and a love they would share with one another for an eternity beyond those next four years. Since the city of Philadelphia is where these two college sweethearts first met, it was only fitting that Brittany and David came back from NYC to tie the knot at the city’s celebrated and historic Rittenhouse Hotel.

Allure Films and Cliff Mautner Photography were at Brittany and David’s wedding to photograph and film beautiful moments between the couple and their wedding party inside the hotel, as well as outside against the picturesque backdrop of Rittenhouse Square Park. Both the ceremony and reception took place in the hotel’s ballroom, which was magically transformed while guests enjoyed cocktail hour. Philadelphia’s Evantine Design team were behind all of the spectacular floral arrangements, including the gorgeous hanging floral display that served as the couple’s chuppah.

After the beautiful ceremony, everyone let loose on the dance floor and hammed it up for the photobooth station, which provided tons of fun props and buttons with sayings such as “PENN IS MY HAPPY PLACE.” When the guests were wiped out from taking photos and dancing, they were sure to stop by the bagel wall! David’s company, Schmear It, provided a wide variety of bagels and “Schmear” to satisfy the guests’ biggest cravings.

Brittany and David, Mazel Tov and Go Quakers from all of us at Allure Films!

Philly Flavor With A Touch Of New Orleans Tradition At The Independence Visitor Center

Nov

2017

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!
