A Picturesque Outdoor Setting For Anya & Russell’s Wedding Day

Anya & Russell Appleford Estate Wedding VideoThere’s nothing like an Appleford Estate wedding!

Just a few months ago, Anya and Russell said “I do” outside on the grounds of the picturesque arboretum, filled with boxwood gardens and blossoming trees. Anya happens to be part of the Philip Gabriel Photography team, so you can just imagine how ecstatic her coworkers were when Russell popped the question.

If you have been keeping up with our blog, you know that the Allure Films crew is no stranger to working alongside our friends at Philip Gabriel Photography. To simply say we felt honored when Anya and Russell asked us to film their wedding, would be a complete understatement.

For most brides, that short walk down the aisle with their father is a beautiful moment that goes by so fast but one they will never forget, and this definitely rings true for Anya. Anya was born in Ukraine and moved to the United States with her mother and brother when she was 10.

The bride had only seen her father a total of three times since moving to America, and it meant the world to her to have her father present to give her away. Without a secured Visa, Anya was concerned that her father would not be able to be there for her big day. Alas, the stars aligned and Anya’s father was able to be there!

Thanks to Sarah and her team from All About Events, Anya and Russell’s wedding day went off without a hitch on the day they got hitched! Petah Bashano was the visionary behind the couple’s wedding décor of beautiful and exotic dark teal floral arrangements.

The talented performers of BVTLive’s Dream Time provided the beautiful music for the ceremony and cocktail hour that followed. Anya and Russell exchanged vows before friends and family in an interfaith ceremony officiated by Julie Cassidy, Owner and Wedding Officiant of Storied Celebrations.

The couples’ vows to one another were very unique and personal, and even gained a few laughs when Anya vowed to support Russ “even if that means rooting for the Giants and the Yankees…occasionally.”

The celebration continued with a beautiful semi-outdoor reception consisting of a wonderful meal catered by John Serock Catering, and dancing, lots of dancing. DJ Steve Croce of Silver Sound Entertainment played amazing tunes throughout the evening. Anya’s boss Gabe, Philip Gabriel Photography’s owner, even put the camera down for a moment to bust a move! We know this was a day the couple will never forget.

Anya and Russell, we wish you the best and this is only the beginning of a lifetime of happiness!

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!

Love, Laughter, & Happily Ever After At This Phoenixville Foundry Wedding

Just like the old song goes, “Love will keep us together.” Throw in a dash of fun and laughter and you’ve got the wonderful couple that is Christine & Nick!

This fun-loving couple exchanged vows in a traditional Catholic wedding ceremony held at Saint Coleman’s Church in Ardmore, PA. At the church the Allure Films team and Hoffer Photography were able to capture many touching moments, including the bride walking down the aisle towards her groom at the altar, as well as sharing one-on-one moments with family members.

After the ceremony it was time for the guests and wedding party to head on over to the Phoenixville Foundry for the bride and groom’s reception – also known as the party of their lives! The reception took place in the Foundry’s main ballroom. This facility within the Foundry contains a mix of timelessly historical and modern architecture that made for a great interior backdrop for photos. Christine and Nick made their grand entry in style, with the groom playing a mean air-guitar performance accompanied by his bride rocking along with him! After feasting on a delicious meal catered by J Scott Catering, the couple of the hour hit the dance floor dancing away to the hot tunes spun by Silver Sound Entertainment’s DJ Steve Croce.

Not only was the reception a blast, it was also a sweet celebration in every sense of the word. The couple had a terrific dessert spread including a make-your-own sundae station, along with a make-your-own candy box station that guests could take home with them afterwards. Christine and Nick, we wish you many more years of sharing the laughter and love together!

We loved capturing Elena and Dan’s fun and loving moments at some of Philadelphia’s biggest landmarks. It is always a blast to celebrate in the city of brotherly love! Elena and Dan’s wedding celebration took place at Vie. With decor by Beautiful Blooms Events, this (already) gorgeous venue was a fairytale come true. Silver Sound Entertainment had the dance floor packed as the evening unfolded. Our favorite quote of the night: “Take  on the world as a team, but don’t lose yourselves as individuals.” Congratulations to our lovely newlyweds, and a big thank you for allowing the Allure Films to be a part of your big day!
