We got married at The Down Town Club and the entire experience, from planning, to the day of, was perfect! From our venue visits, to contracting, initial plannings, making selections, and finally, the day of service - everything was incredible and they made us feel so comfortable. Cescaphe knows what they are doing when it comes to planning and executing a wedding!

Leading up to our wedding, our event manager, Kristen, was so kind and helpful and we were so excited to see her on the day of our wedding! The staff at the Down Town Club (especially our maitre d', Andrew) made us and our families feel like kings and queens - they were so kind and accommodating. No detail was missed. Finally, if you are interested in Cescaphe, then you've already heard about the food - it is over the top and incredible! We have received countless compliments from our friends and family on The Down Town Club and it couldn't have happened without the team at Cescaphe. We can't recommend or thank them enough!

Everything was amazing from start to finish. Cescaphe Event group became like family . They made sure our day was nothing short of perfection. My guest have been raving about their amazing venue The Downtown 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!!!

There are not enough words to describe just how wonderful Cescaphe was for our wedding! From start to finish, the process was fun, easy, and pretty stress-free. From the start, the team at Cescaphe helped us plan our October wedding with ease and were amazing at answering our questions, explaining each step of the process, and always over-communicating (thank you Betsy Shoustal!). We chose The Atrium at the Curtis Center for our venue, knowing it was about to undergo some big renovations. Unfortunately, The Curtis Center made this a bit of a challenge for us, but the Cescaphe team did everything they could to keep us updated of the progress and let us know each change as it happened (with pictures) – even though a lot was out of their control! We really appreciated that, and thankfully, all the major renovations were done by the time of our wedding and everything looked BEAUTIFUL. The actual venue is such a cool space. The acoustics are a little tough because it’s an atrium, but it’s nothing that stopped us from selecting it for our wedding. When it’s all done up it’s just gorgeous! We worked with Dawn Mullan for initial menu planning session and she was SO helpful and knowledgeable of everything. She made the experience really wonderful and easy! At the wedding,, everything went off without a hitch. We are SO thankful to have been paired up with Renee Ziegler, our event manager. Renee had everything under control at all times and made the day run smoothly. She is an absolute pro!! We also had
had Thomas, Carolyn, and Joanne as our maitre’d/head servers who were AMAZING and attentive. Our guests raved about the food (what CEG is famous for) - just perfection ... and SO much! We recommend Cescaphe to ANY Philadelphia brides. You won't be disappointed! They're the best at what they do and so worth every penny!!

'The best wedding I've ever been to ' were the words excitedly thrown at my husband and I by many guests the day of our wedding at WaterWorks. The team at Cescaphe leading up to the big day was exceptionally attentive to our desires and they delivered every promise times a million. I’m very type A and Cescaphe gave me no doubts that I was in good hands. The amount that I did not have to coordinate or worry about on my wedding day was priceless, allowing me to enjoy every minute, savour the food, and celebrate with family and friends because of it. This was probably the closest to royalty I'll ever feel. WaterWorks as the venue was selected for sentimental reasons, but when that meant Cescaphe was hosting, the game completely changed. WaterWorks is such an amazing, classically elegant, and peaceful backdrop for everything- ceremony, cocktails and all. Between the WaterWorks as the venue, the amazing food, the fantastic and attentive service, stunning cake, and flawless execution, we could not have asked for anything better!

The most impressive event management company I have ever worked with! Not many people can manager a bride with anaphylaxis like they can! They took a chaotic situation and made it a beautiful and wonderful evening! The food, drinks, and service were fabulous. It was a seamless transition from ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. The Tendenza was the perfect place for our wedding!

My husband and I chose to have our wedding reception at the Cescaphe Ballroom and it was absolutely amazing. Cescaphe Event Group is on top of everything from the day you book your date through the entire process. They are well-organized, pleasant to work with and made the wedding planning process extremely smooth. The food was absolutely phenomenal from cocktail hour to the dinner options (which they have tons to choose from), the venue itself looked gorgeous, service was impeccable and they offer so many special little touches that just make you feel like royalty on your special day (love the fireworks down the stairs when you're announced). We have to give a special shout out to our mait're d Michael, who was beyond attentive and AMAZING, and went out of his way to make sure we were taken care of, comfortable and having a great time the entire night. Also, our event manager Mary Ma was extremely helpful through the planning process and checked in on us throughout the night to make sure everything was going as planned/smoothly -- and thank you to the entire event staff, bartenders, valet service, etc. who made our wedding day perfect! Cescaphe also has a person in-house who makes beautiful wedding cakes and can create pretty much anything based on your vision -- we loved ours! Both of our parents also had a head server (shout out to Carlene and Anthony who were incredible!) who only waited on their tables for the night and made sure they were taken care of. We highly recommend the Cescaphe Ballroom -- and all of their venues for that matter -- to anyone looking for a wedding venue in the city. We have been to many of them for other weddings and corporate events and they are the absolute best!

Words can not even describe how PERFECT my wedding at the Waterworks was! Literally EVERYONE said it was the best wedding that they have ever been to. I want to relive it over and over again. Sonia and Kelli made booking the venue the easiest and best decision I could ever have made. Dawn ran my menu meeting like a boss and made my mom and fiance feel so comfortable and excited for the big day. Betsy... I can not say enough great things about Betsy for pulling everything together and keeping me from going absolutely insane before my wedding. The venue was magnificent, the food was stellar (and we are all restaurant industry people!) and everything was over the top perfection. Can I do it again please?!??!?!?!

Cescaphe is a class act! Everything that they do is with precision and elegance and they are absolutely top notch without being pretentious or overdone. I can't say enough about how amazing our whole experience with Cescaphe was. Erin was absolutely amazing as our Coordinator and went way above and beyond for us, and Thomas was incredible standing by our side on the day of our wedding. When things came up the week of our wedding that were beyond anyone's (including Cescaphe's) control, the absolute best thing that we did was trust Erin and Cescaphe 100%- they did not disappoint. You can't go wrong with a Cescaphe wedding! Worth every penny.
