Love & Romance At This Stunning Moulin Philadelphia Wedding!

If you’re looking for a jaw-dropping location to host your dream wedding, look no further than Moulin at Sherman Mills!

This venue by Brûlée Catering was the perfect place for Laura and Alec’s June wedding. Nestled in East Falls just a stone’s throw away from Center City Philadelphia, had everything the bride and groom could have hoped for, and more!

After capturing some very touching footage of their “first look” in the heart of the city, Allure Films traveled with the couple to Sherman Mills, where Evantine Design had draped Moulin’s towering ceilings in hanging greenery and perfect summer colors. Laura and Alec exchanged vows under a chuppah that appeared to be raining flowers on the couple. How romantic!

The new Mr. and Mrs. led their guests into the reception hall, where they dined on Brûlée Catering’s award-winning fare and danced the night away to live music by Simply Irresistible.

We enjoyed documenting loving moments between Laura and Alec around some of Philadelphia’s hot spots. The historic locations all throughout Philadelphia are definitely an advantage of a city venue. Moulin is definitely a unique venue that will provide a wow factor that just can’t be found anywhere else!

Love, Laughter, And Plenty Of Patriotism At A Union League Wedding

What an overwhelming day filled with love!

From the love for their country, to the love for their city, to their undying love for each other, Christine and Evan’s wedding day was one of the most romantic events that Allure Films has had the privilege of filming.

As members of the United States Air Force, the beautiful couple carried a patriotic theme throughout their wedding. Red, white, and blue dresses, flowers, and even the wedding cake kept everyone feeling festive and the venues looking incredible.

Christine and Evan exchanged their vows at the stunning Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter & Paul, right at the heart of Philadelphia. Afterward, they were whisked away to some of Center City’s most amazing locations, where our friends at Philip Gabriel Photography snapped photographs of the entire wedding party having fun.

After sneaking several kisses underneath the new “AMOR” sign at the top of the Art Museum Steps, the newlyweds moved the party to The Union League of Philadelphia. With more than 150 years of history supporting the United States military, it was the perfect place for Captain and Mrs. Farren to celebrate their marriage.

From the lively music by EBE Dreamtime to Evan’s one-of-a-kind Eagles party shirt hidden under his uniform jacket, the fun-filled reception was definitely one for the books.

Congratulations to the newlyweds! Thanks for letting the Allure team be a party of your special day! Enjoy this preview from Christine and Evan’s Union League wedding:

Capturing Pure Bliss At Two Of Philadelphia’s Hottest Wedding Spots

This is one fun-filled Philadelphia wedding video that you simply have to see!

The Allure Films team was thrilled Jennifer and Gregory asked us to document their gorgeous Philly wedding. They would be celebrating their special day in not one, but two of our most favorite locations!

Their ceremony took place at the jaw-dropping Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul. The cathedral looks like something straight out of the Vatican with its breathtaking columns, antique marble, and beautiful stained glass,. It felt even more special illuminated by the smiles of the happy couple.

After the ceremony, the party really got started! We all climbed into a party bus and made our way over to The Ritz-Carlton. Along the way, we made a few stops at some of Philadelphia’s most beautiful landmarks. The gorgeous fall foliage created the perfect backdrop for the entire wedding party to strike funky poses, and the Allure team was there to capture every happy moment.

As we filed into The Ritz, everyone’s jaws drop. The always-elegant venue did not disappoint. The décor was perfect, and EBE’s Rio kept the party going all night long with their flawless musical performances.

Watching Dreams Come True At Erica & Steve’s Curtis Center Wedding

April 11, 2016 Blog, The Curtis Center

Every bride dreams of the dazzling day when she’ll finally get to say “I Do” to the love of her life. Allure Films was able to capture Erica & Steve’s dream come true, when they exchanged vows at The Curtis Center in Philadelphia!

From beginning to end, the entire day was filled with sweet moments. One of our personal favorites was the moment when Steve saw Erica in her wedding dress for the very first time. It was wonderful to see such a beautiful moment unfold. Steve was speechless!

After their first look, Erica and Steve took us on a scenic tour of the city, where we captured plenty of breathtaking footage of the couple. The love and energy that these two share could be felt by everyone who saw them.

When we stepped into The Atrium at Curtis Center for the ceremony, we were completely blown away by the stunning décor by Carl Alan Floral Designs. They always make every last detail amazing, whether big or small. The Curtis Center the perfect venue for this adoring couple.

As always, BVTLive’s very own Jellyroll kept the party going all night. It’s always a pleasure enjoying their musical talent while capturing footage of guests celebrating at wedding receptions. They always find a way to make our job even more enjoyable than it already is (and we didn’t think that was possible!)

As the bride and groom got ready to recite their vows, the Allure team captured several heartfelt moments, from the first time Carly’s dad saw his daughter in her wedding dress to Louis’ smile as he read a special card from his future wife.

Filming Those Unforgettable Moments Before “I Do”

While many people tend to focus on the vows, the ceremony, or the party at the reception, Allure Films’ favorite part of wedding day is capturing the moments before the “I Do’s.”

During our initial meetings with Hallie and Sam, it was clear that they felt the exact same way. They were thrilled to have the Allure team there to film their Hyatt at The Bellevue wedding, and wanted to make sure we would be there extra early to film all of those touching moments leading up to their walk down the aisle.

The weather couldn’t have been more perfect when we arrived in Philadelphia on that gorgeous October day. Our crew ventured off to meet up with Hallie and Sam in their rooms as they got ready for the big day.

So many wonderful moments were caught on film that morning. As the beautiful wedding dress hung in the background, we followed the bride and her family around as they helped each other get ready. The way that Hallie’s dad looked on as his daughter’s hair and makeup were done was truly touching.

Our videographers also captured Sam hanging out with his groomsmen, sharing funny stories and laughing at memories captured on their phones as they put on their tuxedoes and fastened their bow ties.

It’s these candid moments, caught on camera by Allure Films, that the bride and groom will cherish forever. They truly make each wedding video unique!

Klocek2 - Hyatt At The Bellevue Wedding

With the entire bridal party dressed to the nines, we ventured down to the ceremony hall. The traditional Jewish ceremony was held under a gorgeous huppah. The floral arrangements, provided by Carl Alan Floral Designs, were out of this world. They truly transformed the ceremony and reception halls into incredibly stunning spaces.


It was truly a pleasure to document Hallie and Sam’s wedding day. We got to be a part of so many unforgettable moments. Congratulations, Hallie and Sam!

Dilworth Park In Philadelphia Is Open For Weddings!

August 18, 2015 Blog

Philadelphia is notable for its rich history, distinct architecture, endless charm and constant innovation, making it a one of the most iconic hot spots in the country for your wedding!  

Dilworth Park Wedding

Photos by Emily Wren

A recent post by Philadelphia Business Journal shared that the first full wedding was held at the newly renovated and modernized Dilworth Park. The venue is centrally located in Center City, adjacent to the historic City Hall

The park is a stunning location that offers many unique film and photo opportunities!

The Design

Sleek and simplistic, the park presents you with so many options! It allows you to play with different colors schemes when it comes to décor and lighting.

Adding a pop of color allows your videographer to mix color and black-and-white footage. This timeless film style adds glamor without feeling stuffy.

The Fountain

The Fountain at Dilworth is a water sculpture set in motion! Elegant streams of water spout at random intervals and create a lively accent to your festivities. The fountain jets can also be custom-programmed to add more entertainment.

Water creates great texture and depth to your film and photos. Fluid-motion techniques can be applied to capture the “soft, dreamy flow” of the water streams.

The Great Lawn

The Great Lawn provides a splash of greenery in the city’s most vibrant new park. This green space surrounded by seating areas offers guests extra space to hangout at your Dilworth Park wedding.

Having extra mingling areas creates endless ways for your videographer and photographer to capture candid moments of your guests and wedding party.
