CinemaCake has captured a lot of fun surprises at weddings in the past. From our couples breaking out into a perfectly choreographed first dance, to a spontaneous fireworks display, we had thought we had seen it all! That is, until Lisa and Paul's wedding reception. This beautiful reception started out with a traditional first dance and a fabulous dinner served to all 500 guests in attendance at Vie. Then, when the Father-Daughter dance began, everyone was blown away! Check out the ending of their Coming Soon Trailer, HERE!
"It's WONDERFUL!!! Oh my goodness!!!! It's fantastic!! Thank you so much!! We have been honored to work with you!!" -Lisa and Paul Getz
Months before her wedding day, Lisa had selected the song "My Little Girl", by famed country singer Tim McGraw, for her first dance with her father, thinking it would be a touching song for the BVTLive!'s JellyRoll to perform. Little did she know that her dad, Dave, had much bigger plans! Dave had secretly communicated with the song's co-writer and had McGraw sneak onto the stage and surprise Lisa at the reception! Alison Conklin was there to snap some beautiful shots and the CinemaCake crew was ready to capture some amazing footage, which you can check out in the sneak peek we released the day after the wedding!
Of course, it isn't every day that a three-time Grammy winner stops by a wedding for an impromptu concert! Philadelphia Wedding Magazine gave everyone the behind-the scene scoop an interviewed each of the vendors involved in the wedding. You can check out their article HERE! This story also became national news fast and Lisa and Paul were interviewed by a couple of news outlets about their out-of-this-world reception. Here is an interview they did with Fox 10 in Phoenix, complete with some of our clips of the jaw-dropping performance!
McGraw stayed at Lisa and Paul's reception after the Father-Daughter dance and performed a full set of songs for the newlyweds and their guests! Special thanks to all involved, including Cescaphe Event Group, the amazing team at Vie, Alison Conklin Photography, Beautiful Blooms, and BVTLive!'s Jellyroll!
This summer, CinemaCake has sent crews out all over the "City of Brotherly Love" to work with amazing couples and capture some truly beautiful wedding days. One of the best parts of filming in Philadelphia is all of the gorgeous and unique spots that this city has to offer. We have had the chance to film in several beautiful ballrooms, a green house, and even a museum! Here are some of our favorite trailers from this season of weddings.
Gabriela and Mike's Timeless Wedding at the Bellevue
Upon first review of Gabriela and Mike's wedding website and their beautiful engagement photos from Paris, we knew right away their wedding day would be nothing short of elegant. This adorable couple planned a traditional day and added personal elements throughout their reception at the Hyatt at the Bellevue, located in the heart of the city. Guests were seated at tables named for the couple's favorite Dave Matthew's Band songs and their card box resembled their adorable pooch! We loved working with Gabriela and Mike and we were thrilled to hear from them after we shared their trailer!
"We LOVE it! I have watched it five times since we first opened the email and keep picking out new things. Thank you so much for capturing our day and personalities so well, we couldn't be happier with the result! We loved working with your team this past Saturday, they were fantastic!"
-Gabriela and Mike
Madeline and Dan's Fun-filled day at the Horticulture Center
When we first met with these high-school sweethearts, they told us that their wedding day would be a fun one; and boy did they deliver! From a lively morning with Maddie and her bridesmaids during preparations, to the amazing dance moves at the end of the night, this sweet couple had a great time and made sure everyone around them did too! Maddie and Dan each wrote to us after they saw the trailer for the first time and both sent such heart-felt notes.
"Literally watched it the second I got home for lunch. Dan and I CANNOT stop smiling! Didn't think it could turn out that amazing!!!"
"I wanted to take a second to echo what Maddie said. I know this is only the trailer but we could not be more thrilled with how it came out. Every shot is gorgeous. I also just wanted to say that the film crew on wedding day was incredible. For the most part, we barely even noticed they were there!
Thanks again for the great work."
Lyndsey and Vincent's upscale affair at the Rodin Museum and the Philadelphia Museum of Art
When Lyndsey and Vincent first reached out to us about filming their day, we knew this was an event that could not be passed up! They had decided to host their wedding at not one, but two of the most iconic art establishments in the city and their day was sure to be filled with love, beauty and elegance. The couple said, "I do!" in the gardens of the Rodin Museum and took photos with their guests in front of an enormous and gorgeous flower wall. From there, everyone traveled to the Perelman Building and each was greeted by traditional Taiko drummers. The guests then dined at one long, beautifully laid table that stretched nearly the length of the gallery. They danced to live music performed by a CinemaCake favorite, JellyRoll! The night was truly a spectacular one and you can check out all the moments in their Coming Soon Trailer, below.
We didn't just get to film in Philadelphia this summer! Check out our collection of trailers from the summer and see some of the beautiful weddings we captured throughout PA, the Jersey shore and Delaware!
