Bellevue Hall Wedding Videographer, Allure Films

Ellen and Matt celebrated a beautiful wedding day at Jeffrey Miller Catering’s Bellevue Hall. During a pleasant July day, the two married outside Bellevue Hall in the grass.

Getting Ready

Getting Ready Bellevue Hall Allure FilmsBefore everything unfolded, we captured some shots of Ellen and her bridal party preparing for the big day. However, there were many more little guests involved in this big day! Ellen’s bridesmaids, and nieces, joined her in preparation. Everyone involved donned a matching floral robe to begin the celebration. With the help of her bridesmaids, the finishing touches were finally in place, and Ellen was ready to go see Matt.

First Look

First Look Allure Films Bellevue HallEllen descended the stairs in her gown and waited for her soon-to-be husband. After his own preparation, Matt made his way to see his bride for the first time on their wedding day. Before he even reached her, Matt was already grinning widely. The two shared a heartfelt greeting while Matt exclaimed, “You look amazing!” and “You look beautiful!” They shared some laughs and a few twirls together before getting ready to meet their guests. After some private time together, Ellen and Matt made their way outside for the ceremony.

A Ceremony in the Grass

Bellevue Hall Outdoor CeremonyOutside Bellevue Hall, the greenery and neatly kept grounds made the perfect backdrop for this wedding ceremony. With white chairs lined in the grass, florals arranged, and guests ready, their ceremony began. Ellen’s father walked her down the outdoor aisle to meet Matt at the altar. After exchanging vows, Ellen and Matt were announced husband and wife. Their guests cheered as the two made their way back up the aisle and to their reception.

Reception outside Bellevue Hall 

Ellen and Matt continued their festivities outside Bellevue Hall in a tented area. The tent was beautifully decorated with string lights and more greenery. Their tables were accented in light blue and grey, giving it a peaceful and airy set up. With a burst of energy and cheer, Ellen and Matt made a grand entrance into the reception. The two skipped and danced their way to the center for their first dance. Though their entrance was fun and exciting, their first dance slowed down into a romantic moment for the two. Surrounded by family and friends, the newlyweds began their journey together as husband and wife.

As the reception continued, the guests made speeches about Ellen and Matt’s relationship. One theme rang through particularly: they compliment each other. Ellen’s father spoke earnestly, “Matt loves Ellen. he listen to her, he understands her. If you ever watch their give and take, it’s very interesting, but what you see is a mutual respect for each other that will make a lasting relationship.”

In another speech, they were told that they were fan favorites with all of the nieces and nephews, which was evident throughout the day. All of the children were involved and had a wonderful time throughout the wedding day. There were even outdoor games, like badminton and corn hole, for both the kids and the adults to enjoy. While Ellen and Matt are already parents to a few dogs, they are also expecting a baby to extend their family even more!

We had a wonderful time capturing Ellen and Matthew’s wedding day at Bellevue Hall. We wish you two all the best on all of your future adventures, and with your growing family. Congratulations again!

Videography: Why It Should Be In Your Wedding Budget

May 31, 2022 Blog

Time and time again, couples ask an important question when planning their wedding: “Is wedding videography worth it?

The question is often asked once the wedding photographer is chosen. Why not get the best of both worlds with a photographer and videographer?

Remember, photographers aim to capture the essence of each special moment through a series of photos, while videographers focus on documenting your wedding story in its natural flow.

Here are three great factors to consider when deciding whether wedding videography is worth it:

Hear Everything

The biggest difference between the two is that your wedding video will offer some of the actual audio from your big day.

You will be able to hear the moment you said “I do”, the heartfelt speeches from close family and friends, and the special moments in between. As you celebrate each anniversary, you’ll be able to relive the day exactly as it unfolded. You’ll be able to hear your father’s words, and see his expressions.

Capture All The Moments

Looking to capture all of those amazing wedding moments? You won’t miss a minute with effective videography.

Aside from the big memories, you’ll also have the in-between moments on film – the groom’s emotions before the first look, your grandmother dancing at your reception, your flower girl walking down the aisle, and more.

Take It Anywhere

Once documented, your love story can go anywhere with you – and can be shared for many years to come.

If you’re really stuck on whether wedding videography should be a part of your budget, think about other items that are only temporary, like flowers, food, and even the dress.

Now, consider the value of a video that will last a lifetime. Think it’s worth it?
