Vie is the newest addition to Cescaphe Event Group's three beautiful and unique event venues in Philadelphia. Hovering just north of City Hall, the infamous ‘Love Park’ and the amenities of Center City Philadelphia, Vie was introduced to the public in the fall of 2011, though is already the most desired and sought after venue in the city. Inspired by the elegance of French Provençal Design, Cescaphe Event Group’s exquisitely detailed fourth venue fuses the romance of the Cescaphe Ballroom, the regal tradition of the Atrium at the Curtis Center and the modern décor of Tendenza. Every facet, from the imported Italian Mosaic annex area, to the flow between soft lounge seating and custom built lights and staging, has been designed to impress your guests and ours. Upon arrival, guests are greeted by chef-attended sushi and pasta stations, three full service bars, a towering champagne display, and, of course, a customized ice sculpture atop a boundless stretch of seafood and hors d’oeuvres. As the bride and groom find sanctuary in the beautifully appointed private bridal suite, guests move into the magnificent main reception room, complete with a forty-foot long floor-to-ceiling bar and white porcelain French chandeliers. The adjoining open-air enclosed courtyard stays candlelit throughout the evening, which has become the pride of Cescaphe Event Group and one of the most talked about additions to the city’s landscape.

I could not have asked for a better night. Everything about Cescaphe was so wonderful. There was someone there every step of the way to make sure the night was the best it could be. Sarah, the event manager had every little detail done so perfectly and was very attentive throughout the entire night with making sure everything went as planned. She even came right to the rescue when someone dropped a glass on the dance floor. Michael took care of us the entire night, made sure we ate and followed the time line. He always made sure we had what we needed.
The food was amazing, everyone made sure that food form cocktail hour was brought to our parents and to us. The dinners were delicious. we were even asked if we wanted to take the extras home for the next day. The cake was beautiful. I actually did not want a wedding cake and did not care what it looked like, but Sara and the cake decorators did an awesome job and it was so beautiful.
The room looked beautiful and Sara did a great job putting everything around that I had brought for extra decorations I wanted. We had some wedding crashers at the end of the night and the bar tenders noticed right away and came up to me to see if I knew them and said they would take care of getting them out. Which amazed me, because after serving 240 guests all night, who would even notice 3 different faces?
The wedding was worth every penny that was spent and everyone at Cescaphe made it a night to remember forever. I could not be more happy and more pleased with the way everything went and looked.

Vie really made me and my whole family feel extremely special on our wedding day by going out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Everything we asked for leading up to the event they accommodated and they checked in throughout the evening to make sure we were happy with things. People are still talking about how amazing the food was and how they were so stuffed after cocktail hour they could hardly touch their entrees. It was truly more than we could have imagined and you really made it a special day for us.

My husband and I just recently had our Wedding reception at Cescaphe's venue called Vie-600 N Broad Street Philadelphia and absolutely LOVED every moment. Cescaphe's staff was friendly, professional and went out of their way left and right for all guests. They prepared VIP plates for my husband and I and both our parents so we could try everything on the menu and also have a tasting of eveything during the cocktail hour. The cocktail hour was an hour and a half where everyone easily found their way to the bar and had great tastings of an incredible assortment of the infamous seafood buffet bar, sushi bar, pasta station, butlered appetizers and so much more! The Vie is a huge space where your guests feel free to move about and with the giant 360 bar that is GOREGOUS for photos, no one ever has a problem getting to the bar and being served during the 6 hours they are there. The cocktail hour is beautiful with a great mosaic for photos and the ballroom is unbeleivable where the curtains block off this part for your guests until cocktail hous is over to add that extra "wow" factor. The dance floor provides plenty of room for guests to dance freely and the outdoor garden area adds an extra fun touch for anyone who needs a breath of fresh air or a cigar/cig break. I have heard nonstop compliments of how incredible this venue was and the perfect wedding reception for fun guests who are ready to dance and party hard all night and NOT leave hungry after the surprise breakfast buffet and desserts at midnight!

This venue is absolutely stunning! The staff is unbelievable and amazing to work with. We honestly can't say enough good things about Cescaphe and Vie, they made sure our wedding went without a hitch. Out of all the vendors you will have to deal with during the wedding planning processes, Cescaphe will be the easiest. They are on top of their game and beyond professional. THANK YOU for our amazing night!!!

Oh my goodness we could not say enough wonderful things about our experience with Cescaphe Event Group for our wedding at Vie in Philadelphia. From the moment we started doing tours with them until they helped us up onto the trolley at the end of the night, every moment was impressive. They are extremely nice and wonderful to work with, very attentive to special requests, flexible and made the entire wedding planning process FUN and EASY (which is how it should be!). The entire time i felt so confident-that the food would be delicious, the bar would be impressive, every detail taken care of and that our guests would be WOW-ed...and boy they sure were WOW-ed! We are still getting phone calls and messages from our guests telling us how beautiful our venue was, how amazing the food was and how sweet and helpful the staff was and that they are even recommending anyone planning an event to go to Cescaphe! Julie was our planner and she was so amazing in answering all of my emails in a timely manner and getting me information we needed efficiently, she was nice to work with and again made us feel so confident and secure that everything would be perfect. The day of our wedding, Rick as our maite d' and he was awesome making sure we ate and had drinks and had everything we needed. Our parents even had their own attendants, my mom had a spot in her dress and her attendant took her to the bathroom and was scrubbing her dress until it came out-SO NICE! There are endless nice things to say about what the staff at Cescaphe did for us to make our day at Vie our best day ever.
If you're reading this review because you're debating having your wedding here, I'm telling you-take the tour, ask the questions, they take care of EVERYTHING and will take your one very very very special day so seriously as if it was their own, you will not regret it!

We got married at the Curtis Center in August and it was amazing. Emily was our event manager and David was out maître d' and they were both great. David fixed my bustle about 50 times and Emily answered all my annoying questions leading up to the wedding. Everything was perfect and seamless. These people know what they are doing. If you are a worrier or type A or not a diy type, I am all three, you should get married here because they take care of EVERYTHING. There is a great attention to detail and an attentiveness to the bride and groom and their families that makes all of the difference in my opinion.

Now let's talk about the food which is beyond incredible. The cocktail hour is always my favorite part of any wedding and this one did not disappoint. Just the sheer amount of food is amazing and it is beautifully presented in front of the Tiffany Dream Garden Mosaic. It was hard for us to leave the bridal suite because they bring you everything! The dinner was also delish. My husband asked for another lobster tail at dinner and they went and steamed him two, which again goes back to the attentiveness point.

Finally the room is just stunning. If you want wow factor this is your place. The only thing that stinks is that you have to pay extra for the chandeliers. This place is already pretty pricey so it is just one more thing, but they are worth it in my opinion because they make the room.

We went to a wedding here last week and it was amazing. So much food, beautiful space, the place seemed to be very accommodating to the bride and groom - providing them with both entrees of the night as well as thier parents. The location is a little out of the way. It was nice that the place owns a trolley that picked up guests at the hotel. If you wanted a band, not sure where they would go. The wedding we went to had a dj and that worked out well. All in all, would love to go to another wedding at the Cescaphe!

This is the most amazing space that we have ever seen. We looked at a lot of reception sites and knew immediately when we walked in Cescaphe' that this was the perfect site for us. The room is totally unique in an great section of the city. Joe, the owner, and the front office people were great to work with. They catered everything specific to us and became a valuable resource throughout the planning process. Each meeting was exciting and so smooth. We had nothing to worry about when it came to Cescaphe'. The room look absolutely incredible for the wedding. It was more than I ever dreamed of. Every guest complimented us on the wedding. From the 1 1/2 hour cocktails to the dessert room, the food was some of the best that we had ever eaten. Our guests could not believe it. The staff including the maitre'd were so attentive and made sure that we had everything we needed. We cannot recommended this place enough...it is in a class of its own!

It's absolutely amazing and I can't wait for our guests to be surprised with all the amazing things they offer.

Everything will blow you away from the food to the service and just the venue itself is stunning! You can't beat their pricing and what you get for the price and I HIGHLY recommend having your wedding with Cescaphe event group!
