Award Winning Cinematic Films

From the Shore to the Ballroom

This past weekend we had crews staying local and heading to the shore, both filming unique and loving couples.  We’ve asked Taylor to recap of the events for this Behind The Scenes at CinemaCake:

The first wedding this weekend was right in our hometown of Philadelphia.  Our beautiful couple, Beth Anne and Brian, were married in the historic St. Augustine Church.  Film buffs will remember this location from the iconic film “The Sixth Sense”, but our crew did not report any ghostly sightings!  After the ceremony, guests celebrated at the Cescaphe Ballroom, while our couple took the trolley to Washington Square Park for pictures with us and their photographer, Cliff Mautner. Can you think of a nicer spot in the city, especially in early June?!

Cescaphe is renown for their special touches, such as the trademark “Sparklers Entrance” for the bride and groom’s announcement.  Many guests commented on the beautiful decor and table settings, which you can see pictured above. It was clear that Beth Anne and Brian truly enjoyed themselves, dancing the night away with family and friends. The reception ended with a special flambé for the couple, another tradition at Cescaphe.  Our crew had a great time sharing this special day with the happy couple, and everyone around the office is excited to see the first cut of their film! 

Our crew said it best about the next couple: Sarah and Tim had a beautiful day with a lot of love.  It was clear to everyone how much they cared for one another, from their first looks to the letters they read to one another after the ceremony. The wedding took place at St. James Church in Ventnor, New Jersey, conveniently located a block from the beach! We got some great shots of them in innertubes and their wedding party enjoying the shore.  We also filmed the couple practicing their first dance before going to the Great Bay Country Club for the reception.

Sarah and Tim really know how to throw a fun party and everyone clearly enjoyed themselves! People loved the toasts and it was pretty funny when Grandpa Joe ended up catching the garter.  Once Sarah and Tim hit the dance floor, it seemed like the party would never stop!  Our team captured so much but their favorite was Tim’s killer dance moves!

They capped off the evening with a fantastic display of the day’s photography, done by Carley K Photography.  Take a look at the trailer we created for their wedding video:

We shot some great weddings and we are gearing up for another busy weekend of bridal prep, ceremonies and fun receptions. Be sure to check back early next week for more news and updates from CinemaCake!  Thanks for stopping by!
