7 Reasons to Plan a Cescaphe Wedding

Selecting a wedding and reception venue is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make when it comes to planning your big day! Once you choose the venue, most of the other details will fall into place. For example, the venue you choose will play a major role in deciding your theme and color scheme in addition to the overall look and feel you are going for.

“This might seem obvious, but seek out venues that fit the aesthetic you have in mind. If you’re planning a modern wedding, look at art galleries, well-designed restaurant spaces, or warehouses. On the flip side, a wedding incorporating more natural elements works well with outdoor venues such as parks, backyards, and ranches. Choosing a venue that fits in with (and enhances) your theme will enable your wedding to feel more connected to the space.” – Brides Magazine 

Here in Philadelphia, Cescaphe is a popular choice for couples who are looking for a jaw-dropping wedding venue. Your wedding day is like no other, and with Cescaphe venues, your fantasy can become a reality. Read on to see why Cescaphe deserves your consideration as you select the perfect setting for your ceremony or reception. 

1. A Variety of Venues and Moods

When you work with Cescaphe, you have the option to choose from six separate venues, each with its own unique flair and beauty. 

Cescaphe Ballroom 

Their first venue, the Cescaphe Ballroom, exudes classic elegance and luxury with vaulted ceilings, a beautiful staircase, and a killer bar. 

Franklin’s View

 

With breathtaking views of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, Franklin’s View is  Cescaphe’s newest exclusive outdoor venue featuring a garden-chic contemporary design with grand tents, luminous lights, and a romantic aesthetic. 

Vie

As the largest venue seated in the heart of the city close to city hall, Vie has charm and elegance modeled in the French Provençal style.

Down Town Club 

The Down Town Club is the pinnacle of Georgian-style elegance with tall windows providing sweeping views of Old City and the Delaware River, inlaid marble floors, hand-carved moldings, and mahogany paneling.

Water Works

An outdoor venue with multiple spaces to choose from to fit your aesthetic and guest list, Water Works pairs dramatic, breathtaking views of the river (that only get better as the night goes on and the reflection of warm lights dots the water) with neoclassical architecture and picturesque views of Boathouse Row and the art museum.

The Lucy 

As a modern interpretation of 19th-century architecture—perfect for romantics at heart—The Lucy is the peak of luxury with painted white brick and chevron wood floors.

2. Mouth-Watering, Effortless Catering

With some venues, you have to consider finding a venue and securing a caterer. Not with Cescaphe. However, couples don’t choose Cescaphe’s catering just because it’s convenient. The tastes and aromas of every dish at a Cescaphe venue can’t be beat. Their culinary experience sets the stage and raises the bar with:

Signature cocktail hour-and-a-half, including a chilled seafood bar and gourmet hors d’oeuvres.

A top-shelf bar, plus the ability to add extra special touches like customized signature cocktails to match your tastes.

Between 60 to 70 different entrée options, so you get exactly the flavors you want.

Nobody leaves a Cescaphe wedding hungry! Executive Chef Joe LaPorte prides himself on the high standards he and his team live up to for each and every wedding. If you don’t believe us, take it from one of their satisfied clients:

“While looking at wedding venues, I had many others tell me they host a ‘Cescaphe wedding,’ but there is truly no comparison when it comes to the level of food and service provided by Cescaphe. There is a reason other venues try to compare their food to Cescaphe, they are at the top of their game, and in my opinion, there is no substitute for the real thing.” 

3. THE. CAKES.

As a Cescaphe client, you’ll get to work alongside the pastry chefs to create the cake of your dreams, one that will make a statement at your reception.

10 Things to Think About When Choosing a Wedding Videographer & Photographer

One of the best ways to relive all of the epic moments from your wedding day is to work with a wedding videography and photography team that can create a video and photos packed with all the vibrant, joyous moments and memories from your wedding day—the ones that will last a lifetime!

Choosing a Wedding Videographer and Photographer

Wedding videography and photography can be a gorgeous and artistic representation of your special day, but it’s all about finding the right video and photo team. You need someone who can capture your personality, the love you share with your (future!) spouse, and all the fun, emotion, joy, and celebration you share with your guests. 

Martha Stewart even shared that some couples (along with their families and friends) have watched their wedding highlight films over 2,000 times just in the few months that follow their wedding. Between you, your spouse, family and friends, there are quite a few people who will look back and view your wedding video over and over again: on anniversaries, special gatherings, and more. You want to be sure that you are sharing a beautiful, accurate representation of your one-of-a-kind day. 

But how do you know who to hire? New Pace Wedding Films & Photo has collected the 10 things every couple should consider when choosing a wedding videography & photography team. 

1. Videography & Photography Style

Videography and Photography Style 

Long gone are the days of the cheesy wedding videos of decades past with low-quality picture and sound. But that doesn’t mean that every wedding videographer and photography team has the same style. 

Some videographers and photographers opt for a documentary-style shoot, while others take a more cinematic approach. 

At New Pace Wedding Films & Photo, sometimes we are completely unobtrusive when it comes to achieving our cinematic approach, and other times we need to get more formal to knock out your shot list. Whatever it takes, we know how to execute this so you end up with a jaw-dropping assortment of photos and video shots—all while balancing your timeline for the day so you can soak up every special moment.  

When it comes to navigating how they go about capturing your day, your wedding photographer and videographer should have a balanced style to ensure you get the photos and shots you’ll love to look back on for years to come. 

2. Expertise

Wedding Videography and Photography Expertise

How long has your potential wedding videographer or photographer been in business? You only get one shot at capturing the magic, romance, and love of your wedding day, so you want to be sure you are working with someone who has plenty of experience so they don’t miss a single moment. 

Is your videography and photography team familiar with your wedding location? Do they have plenty of experience working with their equipment and editing software? Have they worked on many weddings? 

A seasoned photographer or videographer who has experience in other areas but not in weddings may not understand all of the ins and outs of what it takes to immortalize your wedding forever. Hiring an experienced wedding video and photo team is the best way to ensure this happens.

3. Combined Photo and Video Services

Combined Wedding Photo and Video Services

Your wedding photography and wedding film are two irreplaceable mementos you’ll revisit for years to come. You want to be sure you love both!

Your photographer and videographer will need to collaborate and work together on your wedding day to ensure the best possible outcomes for your photos and your wedding film. 

Why not streamline the process and hire a company that can offer both? You won’t have to worry about how well the two vendors will collaborate, and you’ll remove a lot of stress and pressure from finding two separate teams.

Hire a company that can handle it all for you and make the booking process simple and worry-free. Working with a team like New Pace Wedding Films & Photo, you also ensure that you end up with dynamic visuals and top-tier outcomes for both your photos and video.

4. Pricing

Wedding Videography and Photography Pricing

Some videographers and photographers charge a flat rate based on their time, while others use pricing packages with add-ons for special features or equipment (like drones for aerial footage of your wedding venue or additional videographers/photographers).

Even if you are opting for a standard package that’s listed on your video or photo team’s website, it’s wise to go through everything that’s included within that package and what the final product will look like once received. 

If there is something you are hoping is included like a trailer or all of the raw footage, ask, and be sure to get all of your agreements in writing. With multiple packages at a wide range of price points, the New Pace Wedding Films & Photo team make the booking process simple to capture beautiful images and footage of your wedding at a price that works for your budget.

5. Collaboration

 

Wedding videographers and photographer collaboration

The wedding industry may seem large, but there are plenty of folks within the industry who know each other and work well together.

Videographers and photographers in the wedding industry tend to be pretty well-connected. Chances are they’ve worked with another wedding vendor with great results.

When you hire a wedding videographer that has a great working relationship with a photographer, a videographer that knows how to get the shot while also letting your photographer take the lead, you’ll end up with better pictures and a better wedding film. 

New Pace Wedding Films & Photo not only works with other photographers seamlessly, but we also offer an all-inclusive in-house package for a single video and photography team. Not only does this make the booking process a breeze, but you know we’ll collaborate well on your big day, too.

6. Knowledge of the Venue

Wedding Venue

An experienced wedding videography and photography team will know how to find the best light and the best angles in any space, but it can’t hurt if they’ve already worked in your wedding venue and have an awareness of what will work best for your wedding.

A Philadelphia wedding videography and photography team that knows your venue will work seamlessly throughout the space, capturing all the best moments in the very best light. 

In Philadelphia, New Pace Wedding Films & Photo has plenty of experience in a variety of venues. We feel at home in an array of settings and venues, including our most popular destinations:

The stunning Cescaphe Venues include the Ballroom, Vie, Down Town Club, Water Works, The Lucy, and Franklin’s View

The elegant venues from Finley Catering: The Crystal Tea Room, The Ballroom at the Ben, Union Trust, and the Ballroom at Ellis Preserve

The beautiful mansion at Glen Foerd

The Arts Ballroom

Check out our full portfolio of video and photography at these amazing venues!

7. Equipment

Wedding Videography and Photography Equipment

What kind of equipment will your wedding videographer and photographer be using? 

Will they be using unobtrusive, cutting-edge video and photography equipment that won’t get in the way of producing crystal-clear images?

Will your wedding videographer ask you to wear a microphone during specific moments throughout the day to capture the best audio?

Will your photographer have the right equipment to capture the best shot no matter the lighting or the time of day?

Does your wedding videographer have a drone camera to enhance your wedding film with sky-high shots and sweeping panoramas?

The equipment your photographer and videographer use will not only have an impact on your wedding film and your photos, but will also affect the tone of your wedding day as well. 

8. Available Packages

 

Wedding Videography Photography Packages

When selecting a wedding videography and photography team, discover what packages and add-ons are available to you. You may find that there are plenty of enticing options that you’ll want to include in your wedding film & photo package. 

There are so many options available to you today thanks to modern editing software. This means that with the photos and videos from your wedding day, your videographer and photographer can offer trailers, highlight films, raw footage, and even employ second videographers to enhance your wedding films and photos for a one-of-a-kind priceless memento of your wedding. 

9. The Editing Process

Wedding Film Editing Process

Editing can be done in all kinds of ways that can enhance your wedding film and your final photos. Your wedding photography and videography team should have plenty of samples available to get a feel for how the editing team will assemble your film and edit the photos from your wedding day for a finished, polished look that captures all of the emotion of your special day. 

Ask for samples and view completed videos and photo albums of other couples on their wedding day. Do they have a portfolio? Discover our New Pace Wedding Film & Photo’s portfolio to see some examples of our finished work! 

10. Input from You

Collaborative Wedding Photography

Is your videographer open to collaborating on a short list before your wedding day or open to requested moments or specific people featured in your films?

Think about the moments you want to capture, the feeling you want to evoke, and any special details you want to add. What are the can’t-miss moments that need to be included in your wedding film? Be sure to talk to your videographer about how much input you’ll be able to have.

This also includes the music for your wedding film, which will impact the tone and feeling. When it comes to selecting the music for your video package trailer or feature, New Pace lets you choose music that’s special to you and your partner to underscore all of the big moments of your day. And for your reception and ceremony cuts? We’ll let all the joyful moments speak for themselves.

We’ll work closely with you to discover how you want your wedding photos and film to look, from the first look and the first steps down the aisle to the last sip of champagne and the final spin around the dance floor before you depart at the end of the night. 

Ask how your videographer chooses the music they’ll use for your wedding film. Are you hoping to include you and your partner’s special song? A song that’s beloved by your family, friend group, or loved ones? Be sure to bring this up if you want this to be a part of your wedding film and make sure your videographer is on board. For a teaser, trailer and feature package, the New Pace team is all about collaborating with you, which means you get to choose your music.

This goes the same for photography. Perhaps you want to recreate a photograph from your parents’ wedding ceremony or stop by a meaningful location to capture a few memories. Make sure your photographer is flexible and willing to do the same!

5 Reasons Couples Regret Not Hiring A Wedding Videographer

You want your wedding to be perfect — you spend years dreaming of it, and months planning every intricate detail. But, in hindsight, one of the most common regrets couples have is declining to hire a videographer to capture their wedding day.  

You may be hesitant about hiring a wedding videographer for a number of reasons. Wedding videography may feel like an add-on that you and your partner can schedule at the last minute if there’s enough money left over, or you may think videography isn’t much different from photography. 

However, waiting until the last minute to hire a videographer can leave you stressed and scrambling to find a credible team with last-minute availability, which is often difficult and will mean hiring a less-experienced team that will produce lower-quality video. You don’t want to miss out on capturing all the unforgettable, irreplaceable moments of your wedding day that you’ll want to treasure forever. 

At New Pace Weddings, our couples are elated that they didn’t pass up the opportunity to record their wedding. They find that it was ultimately an investment that pays in emotional dividends for the rest of their lives as they relive the memories of their commitment to each other and the time spent celebrating with those nearest and dearest to them: 

“New Pace was so amazing from start to finish. I still cry looking at our wedding footage. They truly captured our entire day as well as the love my husband and I share. I was so amazed and so grateful to look back and see how much love that day holds for us! I truly have no words other than absolutely outstanding!”

Jackee and Andrew

Hiring a cinematic videographer to document the sweeping visions, quiet moments, festive celebrations, and tiny details of your wedding is the perfect way to capture the feeling of your wedding day to revisit for years to come. Here are five reasons couples are over the moon about their decision to shoot their wedding on video. 

1. For Friends and Family Members Who Can’t Attend

In a perfect world, your wedding would be attended by an entourage of all the people who helped sew the fabric of your lives — aunts and uncles, friends, mentors, family, and friends, and all those nearest and dearest to you.

But whether you’re seeking an intimate gathering of just a few close-knit loved ones, or if there are a few cherished individuals who live out of the country or too far away to travel, there may be a few people who aren’t there for your special day. 

So, how do you allow those important people to still partake in the wedding celebration in some way? 

A photo may share a glimpse of a single moment, but when you hire a professional videographer, you can catch every breath, each heartfelt anecdote in a toast, and every twirl on the dance floor. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video is worth a thousand pictures. Capturing important moments on film will allow your friends and family to witness this climactic moment in your life story as if they were there — all the emotional moments and all the laughter, dancing, love, and joy included: documented forever. 

2. A Priceless Sentimental Keepsake 

Even though most wedding days happen after months — or even years—of planning, the day itself passes by at a breathless pace. The couples we work with always share with us that their wedding day went by so quickly that it was hard to find more than a minute or two to celebrate as a couple or enjoy more than a few bites of cake or a sip of champagne. But? When these moments are captured on film, you can go back and relive them over and over again as frequently as you’d like and feel that same magic again.

The couples we work with cherish their wedding video as a priceless gift that they can open year after year to celebrate their anniversary. Years down the line, they can even share these organically captured moments with their children. 

When you hire a professional videographer, you won’t have to rely on recollection to relive your first look, your first kiss as a married couple, your loved ones’ toasts, your first dance, or a spin on the dance floor with your parents because they’ll be available to you at the click of a button. 

3. You Can Listen Again to Vows, Speeches, and More 

Your vows are the most important part of your ceremony: The moment you and your partner commit your forever-love to each other in front of the people who matter most to you. What better way to preserve your vows than to capture them on film? 

This way, you and your spouse can revisit and replay your promises any time you like — helping you remember what your marriage meant to you from the beginning, recall the enchantment and romance you felt in that moment, and reflect on all the ways your love has grown and evolved in the time since. 

4. Moments You May Have Missed 

You’ve taken extra care to plan every moment of your wedding, but your day will go by quickly. You’ll want to be able to go back and relive all the moments you experience yourself, as well as savor all the moments happening at your ceremony and reception; the moments of friends reuniting, singing along to the music, and dusting off your dance moves, the laughter and smiles of your guests, and the reactions of your family as you proclaim your love to one another. 

With videography, you can be present for events on the opposite side of the dance floor. Spouses can see the things they missed while their bride or groom was preparing on the morning of. Wedding videography allows you to capture your wedding in full and visit moments you wish you could’ve been a part of. 

5. Sound Bites and Movement

Static photography is its own art form. It’s wonderful; it’s able to capture a single moment and represent it in a still image so that you can study every detail. 

But static photography can never convey the emotion of all the special moments that are recorded through videography, including loved ones’ faces and their raw reaction as you walk down the aisle. Videography captures everything.

Your Philadelphia Wedding Videography Team

The couples that hire us at New Pace Weddings never regret their investment in wedding videography because they never regret the ability to revisit their vows on their anniversary or show special moments to friends who weren’t able to attend. Wedding videography is without a doubt the most effective way to preserve your wedding for the rest of your life. 


New Pace Weddings is your Philadelphia wedding videography team serving Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, New York, and beyond! If you’re looking for a hand-crafted, modern wedding film that captures every moment of your big day, let’s talk soon to ensure your special day is even more perfect! Still on the fence? Take a look at what real couples have to share about why they choose New Pace Weddings to effortlessly and artfully capture their special day!

Love is in the Air! Why you should add Drone to your Wedding Videography

When it comes to filming your wedding — one of the biggest and definitely most planned days of your entire life — the sky’s the limit. Literally. You’ve put lots of thought into every detail of your venue, your dinner, your flowers, and your look. Why not document it all from a bird’s eye view to put it all into perspective?

By hiring a wedding videographer, you aren’t just committing your heart to the love of your life on that day; you’re also committing to capturing all the large and small moments from your day — the ones you cherish that make it memorable, fun, and fresh. It means you can rewatch every detail of your first dance or the best-man speech at the push of a button. 

There are so many ways to make your wedding video unique and interesting, but perhaps one of the best ways to gain a new perspective on your day is with sweeping drone footage taken from above. 

When you hire New Pace Weddings as your cinematic videographer to record your wedding, we can use a drone at heights as high as 400 feet to capture sweeping and cinematic images of your wedding and the surrounding views for a Hollywood-esque quality to your wedding video. In combination with traditional videography, your wedding video will take on an emotional and breathtaking narrative. 

What Types of Shots Can you Expect from Drone Videography in Your Wedding Video

Check out drone films captured here at New Pace Weddings!

Drone footage can enhance your wedding film by adding different points of view, complementing the other footage our experienced videographers gather throughout the day, possibly including moments like group photos, pre-staged glamour shots, quiet moments shared where it’s just the two of you, and overhead shots of the wedding party leaving the venue. 

Let’s be real – planning a wedding is a ton of work. We know that you spend countless hours choosing a venue and selecting intricate decor and each aspect of your wedding’s design. Our drone footage will highlight the unique aspects of your venue’s scenery, like overhead shots of flower petals coating the ground, for instance. You can have overhead footage of the wedding party walking down the beach, or through changing fall foliage. Our videographer can even take wide and expansive shots of vast outdoor scenery such as waterfronts, mountaintops, scenic farmsteads, or the rolling hills of a winery to fully paint the picture of your wedding on your special day.

It’s all about setting the scene of your wedding and preserving the little, lifelike details. Were the leaves changing color? Was there fresh snow on the ground? Were the waves rolling with life, or was the water crystalline and flat? We can capture it all with drone videography. 

Why Drone Videography Is Different from Regular Wedding Videography 

With drone footage, your wedding video’s visual aesthetic can really spread its wings — in a very real way. Disrupting the repetition of ground-level footage, video drones record your wedding and the surrounding landscapes from the sky. These shots add more visual interest, soaring movement, and appeal to the eye that ground-level angles just can’t achieve. 

There’s only so much you can do with a ground-level camera. Drone videography, on the other hand, opens all new kinds of creative doors — allowing your wedding videographer to shoot from new viewpoints and sky-high angles. Not only will the footage be more interesting, but it will also set your wedding video apart from any others your friends and family have seen. 

One of the standout features of drone video footage is its ability to make your wedding video look high-end and cinematic. It’s one of the most effective, emotion-filled ways to capture the same feeling of getting swept away by the romance and emotion that accompanies your wedding day. 

You’ll feel like you’re reliving the event in person every time you watch the video. It’s not only the precision skill of our videographer or the high-quality of the camera that makes this achievable. Drone footage simply allows for a type of footage other cameras don’t. 

Wide-panning establishing shots will set the scenery for your viewers, showing the venue and its surroundings from the air. Whether it’s a beautiful sunny day, a crisp autumn afternoon with changing leaves, or a windy morning at the beach — the full aesthetic beauty of your wedding will translate seamlessly to film. 

Drone videography can do this for you by capturing aerial footage of you and your new spouse delighting in each other’s company and taking in the great outdoors and the unique features of your wedding venue. With this sort of footage, your wedding video will take on a new level of grandeur.
