Lots Of Love & Plenty Of Laughs At Sam & Jill’s Philadelphia Wedding

Nov

2017

A great marriage is built on love, trust…and in the case of Sam and Jill, knowing when to “give each other Reese’s after a long hard day!”

Philadelphia natives Sam and Jill recently tied the knot at the City of Brotherly Love’s The Logan Hotel. Allure Films had the honor of documenting this joyous occasion for the amazing couple and their family.

Both the wedding ceremony and reception took place in The Logan Hotel’s Grand Ballroom. It was incredible to see how quickly everyone worked together to transform the venue into a space fit for both parts of the wedding within a very short window of time. Allure Films and Baiada Photography were there to capture all the great moments, including Sam and Jill saying “I do.” Philadelphia’s Ten Pennies Florist were responsible for the lovely floral arrangements that lined the aisle.

The bride and groom’s wedding vows were heartfelt and tender, filled with lots of love and plenty of laughter. Just like the happy couple! We love the personal twist that they were able to add to their otherwise traditional Jewish wedding ceremony.

As the couple joined their guests for cocktail hour, the Grand Ballroom was magically transformed into the reception hall. A live band was there to keep guests moving and grooving throughout the night.

Sam and Jill’s wedding reception definitely consisted of a lot of love, laughter and dancing! All night long the dance floor was packed, with Sam and Jill always found at the center of it. At one point Jill even becomes a part of the band! Aside from filming the traditional hora dance, we had the privilege of being able to capture moments from the Mezinke dance: a flower crowning ceremony honoring Sam’s parents for marrying off their last child.

Mazel Tov Sam and Jill, here’s to a lifetime of love, happiness, and plenty of Reese’s together!

A Night Full Of Wow’s At Jeff & Maureen’s Water Works Wedding

Nov

2017

It’s hard to sum up Jeff and Maureen’s wedding day in one particular word but “breathtaking” seems like an excellent choice!

Jeff and Maureen’s wedding ceremony and reception took place at Water Works, a National Historical Landmark situated between Boathouse Row and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. When it comes to offering phenomenal views of the city, Water Works is a prime location.

The bride and groom exchanged vows before their friends and family in the historic venue’s Grand Pavilion, an outdoor space of neoclassical architecture that offers fantastic panoramic views of the surrounding river and Center City skyline. While Jeff and Maureen’s heartfelt vows captivated everyone’s attention, their pups nearly stole the show sporting their own best tux and gown as they made their way down the aisle.

The reception was held in the Main Ballroom where the floral arrangements by Beautiful Blooms provided the perfect touch to the room’s stunning interior of crystal chandeliers and natural hardwood floors. Allure Films enjoyed capturing Jeff and Maureen’s reaction to their beautiful reception decorations.

One of the the many highlights of the reception was the fireworks display that served as the perfect grand finale to the happy couple’s special day.

Congratulations Jeff and Maureen, here’s to a lifetime of making beautiful memories together!

2017

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!

A Magical Horticulture Center Wedding

Oct

2017

From the moment Morgan took her first step down the aisle to meet her future husband, Justin, their wedding felt like something out of a storybook.

Philadelphia-based wedding planners Lauren James Events played a huge role in helping the bride and groom’s fairytale wedding dreams come to life. After a classic car ride from her childhood home to Fairmount Park, Morgan met Justin under a stunning wrought-iron archway wrapped in flowers and vines. The couple exchanged heartfelt vows to one another in front of their friends and family in the midst of the majestic and whimsical gardens of the Fairmount Park Horticulture Center.

After the ceremony, the princess bride and her prince were taken away on a horse-drawn carriage to join their loved ones for a magical evening of celebration. Their reception was held underneath a tent on the Horticulture Center property, filled with violet- and lavender-colored florals designed from the vision of Petah Bashano Event Design.

Not only were the decorations stunning, but one decoration in particular was looking especially delicious! The Donut Tree (yes, you read that right!) was definitely a hot spot for photos and satisfying your sweet tooth after the main course. Philip Gabriel Photography captured several great shots around The Donut Tree, as well as countless beautiful moments throughout the evening.

When the wedding party and guests weren’t chatting and reminiscing about stories of the bride and groom, they were dancing the night away to the sensational musical performance by The Vincent James Band.

Fireworks capped off the magical evening, and Morgan and Justin were caught stealing more than one kiss in the middle of the show! Congratulations to the happy couple, and best wishes for a life of happiness together!
