We finally figured out something worth spreading, so to speak. During these insane and uncertain times, it is crutial to have a good laugh, and what better to do that than our "Love Is A Virus" OutCakes? As my grandfather used to say, "Don't go around with your head hung down." These funny, behind the scenes moments (we call them OutCakes) will put a smile on your face and give you something to laugh at.

Wedding films are not just about the romantic moments. Some of the best moments are unexpected and something you will definitely never see if you don't have your wedding filmed.

Jamie and Aaron were married on December 31, 2019 at the new Four Seasons Philadelphia.

We love New Year's Eve weddings! Bringing in the new year by filming a huge party for our clients, their friends and family, and our top-notch vendor friends (friendors) is always a blast. For New Year's Eve 2020, we were asked to film at the Four Seasons. This is our fourth event there this year, and we love it more each time.

Our couples love to have a good time, and Jamie and Aaron are a stellar example of making the wedding day fun as well as meaningful. We enjoy it so much when couples take the time to write their own personal vows. Jamie and Aaron brought everyone in on the jokes and stories, sharing the quirks and personality traits that they love about one another. We felt like we'd known them for years.

Our friends at Philip Gabriel Photography joined us for the entire day, bringing some camaraderie and laughter to our job of capturing the important moments. We know it takes a lot of skill to capture the right photo at the right time, and this is even more true on New Year's Eve when the iconic "midnight kiss" photo happens. Philip Gabriel captured the perfect image which you can see below on our Coming Soon Trailer.

 

The decor and lighting were simply breathtaking in their elegance. For anyone who has ever tried to go out to a club for New Year's Eve, hosting your own event and hiring Evantine Design far outshines any experience you could have outside of a private event. The florals were creative and classic with an undeniable aura of luxury.

Marcus Reid Band took over once the party started, and we can't think of a better performer to ring in 2020. Marcus and his band KILLED IT and led the guests in some intense dancing and singalongs. The only downside of such a great party is that you may get a bit sweaty from having so much fun on the dance floor. All the more reason to grab a drink!

Overall, this was one for the books and we felt like we were a special part of Jamie and Aaron's day as well as their memories for a lifetime. That's what this is really about for us. We love what we do and this was no exception.

Best wishes to Jamie and Aaron for a life filled with happiness!

The Union League is without a doubt an ideal match for couples interested in a wedding venue located at the heart of Philadelphia, just steps away from City Hall. 

Founded in 1862 as a patriotic society to support the Union and the policies of President Abraham Lincoln, The Union League of Philadelphia laid the philosophical foundation of other Union Leagues across a nation torn by civil war. The League has hosted US presidents, heads of state, industrialists, entertainers and dignitaries from around the globe and has proudly supported the American military in each conflict since the Civil War. The Union League continues to be driven by its motto, Amor Patriae Ducit or Love of Country Leads.

- The Union League

Lea and Jeff share in their Love Story that they specifically chose the Union League as their venue because Lea is an avid history buff! 

Not only does The Union League have several iconic features like the entrance's spiraling stairs, but their staff is always professional and accommodating for both vendors and couples. CinemaCake is proud to be featured on The Union League's website. Check out our Union League Wedding Sizzle Reel on their page here.
