I was lucky enough to take wedding pictures at this AMAZING wedding reception at The Allure in Laporte Indiana earlier this summer. While The Allure is relatively new on the wedding reception scene it is an absolutely breath taking venue that offers brides
and grooms the opportunity to treat their guests to an incredibly unique wedding reception experience. One of the things the blew me away about this reception venue is the fact that you’d just never expect to find such an amazing space in such an unassuming
area. To get to the Allure in Laporte you drive down a residential street to what looks like an old gym building and in fact that’s exactly what it is, but you would NEVER guess it by looking at the inside. The venue features balconies, a grand staircase, massive
chandeliers, and the most amazing dance floor you’ve ever seen in your life! Of course none of this really matters if your guests aren’t being taken care of and luckily the staff at The Allure is top notch, I’ve never been kept so well informed about the schedule
of events and any time anything was going to happen they’d make sure I knew about it. The food was also DELICIOUS! =) All in all it was an incredibly fun evening for everyone and I’d like to give a big shout out to Chris Pahl and The Party People DJ service for not
only keeping everyone out on the dance floor but bringing in some incredibly cool lighting that gave this venue an even more amazing look that night! If you’re looking for a DJ who can not only keep the music rocking but go above and beyond with a light
show as well you’ve got to call Chris and The Party People!! Also, this was a 2 photographer wedding and I’ve included a couple of shots of the other photographer working the same shot as I am… one of the great things about 2 photographers is that when they work as a team you don’t just get “more” photos you get complimentary photos that work together to capture a more complete wedding story. I just love the “behind the scenes” feel of the photos, it gives you an idea of just what it might be like to have your picture taken on the wedding day!!

Jeremy and Carolyn Smith - Absolutely beautiful it was!! This was my wedding and I can definelty say that The Allure was indeed a diamond in the rough. Ben Pancoast did such a wonderful job telling the story of our wedding through photgraphy that even 1 year later I still look at the pictures weekly! We couldn’t have asked for a better team of photgraphers to share our memories with. Our pictures are also located in multiple issues of “Veils and Vows”,”Shore” and “Wedding Essentials” magazine if you wanted to see the ad itself and read more on the venue. I would highly recommend The Allure and Ben Pancoast for any event. A big shout out to our DJ Chris Pahl from the “Party People” as well. The fabulous lighting set off the pictures in the most amazing way I have ever seen! It was breathtaking and absoultely stunning walking in and seeing it for the first time. If you want a wedding to remember take full advantage of this comment, you won’t be disappointed. Thanks again to everyone for making our wedding day one that will be remembered forever!
