"Everything was amazing from start to finish. Cescaphe Event Group became like family. They made sure our day was nothing short of perfection. My guests have been raving about our amazing venue, The Down Town Club and the 5-star menu since our wedding last month. I'm sad it's over. I will say Joe and his team are phenomenal, and if you want your day to be one to remember, you should definitely use these guys. They have the best venue locations in Philly hands down. They also host monthly classes for upcoming brides and grooms to give them helpful insightful tips to help ease the pressure of having a wedding!!!"

Curtis Center Philadelphia Wedding

Andrea & Daniel were married at the Atrium at Curtis Center in a stunning wedding on April 8, 2016.

I have so many wonderful things to say about Cescaphe! First off, a huge thank you to Renee' Ziegler. She was beyond awesome! From start to finish she made the whole process easy and fun! Our wedding at the Curtis Center on 4/8/16 was Absolutely Sensational! It was more beautiful than we ever imagined.  Like a dream!  All of our guests were blown away, and they're still talking about it! The food, the venue, the service, the flowers, the uplighting and chandeliers, everything was done to absolute perfection!  It was honestly the best day of our lives and we have the Cescaphe Event Group to thank for it! We were beyond blessed!

"It was a perfect day and we wouldn't have changed a thing!"

Testimonial from Alicia

AMAZING! My husband and I got married at Cescaphe Ballroom and it was pure magic. The staff are excellent. We had our own Maitre d who always seemed to know when we needed something but was not following us everywhere. They also had a server for our VIPs (parents of the bride and groom). They run everything like a well-oiled machine but it all feels personal. The bridal suite in the venue is excellent - they had a sampling of appetizers waiting for us when we arrived before the ceremony which was the perfect time for us to eat since we spent all of cocktail hour socializing. There is tons of food and it's all excellent. The all inclusive price is great because there were no added hidden costs. At the end of the night, they made sure we had all of the personal stuff we brought with us and loaded it back onto the trolley. They think of everything :) It was a perfect day and we wouldn't have changed a thing!


"thank you for the BEST EXPERIENCE of our lives!!!"

Praise from Maurice and Dionne!

Hi Jessica,

Maurice & I would like to thank you for the BEST EXPERIENCE of our lives!!! It was everything we imagined and more!!  Our guests are still talking about our wedding-from the food, to the decor, to the staff-everything was top notch! It was a dream come true, I wish we could do it again, but I don't think my dad would go for that, LOL!!  We would also like to thank Jim for his impeccable service as well-he made sure we were taken care of all night!!!  Our parents would like to thank you all as well-Petey and Andrew made sure they did not go without anything!!

Thank ALL OF YOU for your impeccable service, professionalism and most of all KINDNESS!

"From start to finish, you made planning our wedding easy and fun."

Thanks from Maureen and Ron!

Thank you to Cescaphe and team.  From start to finish, you made planning our wedding easy and fun.  Our wedding day was a dream come true.  It was legitimately the best day of our lives, and everything went so smoothly and perfectly, thanks to you.  

We had so many people compliment us on every detail: the food (so much food!), the venue, the flowers and lighting, the rose petal cannon!, everyone on the staff specifically the maitre D… I just wanted to thank you again and let you know that we will not only be recommending Cescaphe to all of our friends and family, but also making sure that they know every other venue doesn’t even compare to Cescaphe.

Keep in touch and have a very happy holiday season!

And thank you AGAIN!

Maureen and Ron

"...every step of the way is like floating in a dream."

Review from the Mother of the Bride

THE BEST PLACE TO HAVE A WEDDING IN PHILADELPHIA!! My daughter had her wedding on 9/5/2015. It was at the Cescaphe Ballroom in the Northern Liberties section of the city. This is over - the top, once in a life time so use Cescaphe to really make this night count. They have 5 other venues as well but the Ballroom with it's Great Gatsby gorgeous decor was perfect for my daughter's theme. The food is abundant, and incredible. An hour and a half cocktail hour with 45 types of hor'douvres. The dinner, dessert room and beautiful cake were all spectacular as well. My family and the grooms's are Italian - and we LOVE FOOD!!! This is the place to go!

But what really sets Cescaphe apart is the service. You will feel like celebrities. on the day of the wedding - that means the bride & groom, as well as the parents of the bride and the groom. WE each had our own go to person to make sure we had EVERYTHING we needed. That night Adrienne ran the whole show, Michael was in the front of the house and Carleen took care of us parents. What gracious wonderful, professional people they all are.

Cescaphe is the Disney World of weddings. These people love their job, love what they do and are proud of what they do and that is why every step of the way is like floating in a dream. I can't say enough about this wedding which will be etched in our minds for all times.
