We were immediately attracted to the classical elegance of the building and when we learned that Cescephe is the exclusive caterer we were even more excited.
At first I was nervous that the room might not look romantic enough, as I desired, but the lighting and the draping created the perfect atmosphere.

I cannot sing enough praises about the service, food, and ambience of Cescaphe's Atrium at the Curtis Center. I was told (and continue to hear) that our wedding was the best our guests have ever been to. The Atrium is simply stunning, the food is out of this world, and their service is impeccable. My husband is not one for praises or compliments and always finds fault with everything, but HE could not stop raving about how amazing everything was. He is still saying that our wedding was “Heaven” because of the Curtis Center. The maître d’ was with us every step of the way, making sure we had what we needed or wanted, before we even asked. We were truly treated like the King and Queen of the evening.
While the price might seem a bit high to some, when you look at everything Cescaphe offers, their price per person is unbeatable; everything is included: cake, alcohol, linens, tax and tip! It was so much more affordable to go with Cescaphe than anyone else. Fantastic Value!

This wedding I was a guest that felt as though I was royalty! I can't wait for my next Cescaphe Event!

The Curtis Center definitely has the "wow" factor that most wedding venues lack. Super high ceiling, billowing white drapes, and a Tiffany mosaic wall! What more can you ask for in terms of visual effect? Even my most critical guests could not helped but be awed by the venue. It will take your breath away.
The Cescaphe Event Group is hands down the best team of event coordinators you can work with in the area. I've met with several other caterers and no one compares to the quality of service that Cescaphe provides. They're business is designed to fit every bride and groom's needs and each member of their team understands and executes their role with dedication and precision. They honestly take care of everything for you! Emily was my event coordinator who knows EXACTLY what she's doing - super organized and catches on quickly to what you expect (and/or demand). There was never a moment where I felt nervous with her helping me. On the day of the wedding, Larry, Sal, and Jeanine were also there to make sure everything ran smoothly and no one had cold feet. Larry is THE MAN! Any man who knows how to unbustle a train and holds on to fashion tape for you deserves special recognition. Also special thanks to: Natalie, Dawn, and Nikki who helped us through it all. Honestly, Cescaphe makes me want to have another wedding just so I can work with them again!

From start to finish working with Cescaphe Event Group was effortless. Cescaphe's philosophy is spot on, they take care of everything so you don't have to. A wedding with Cescaphe is truly an experience, they take such amazing care of the bride, groom, and every single guest that attends. When we walked into the Atrium at the Curtis Center it was so overwhelming to see everything come together. People say they typically don't care about food at wedding but not with Cescaphe, the food is so over the top you will not go home hungry.
If you are planning on having a 200 person attended wedding the price per person is well worth it, if not under priced, since every cost is included in that price. When reviewing other vendors throughout Philadelphia it was amazing to hear how many items did not come standard, from tax, chairs and silverware in the price per person.
Larry and Emily are amazing to work with, in addition to the other associates that you will interact with during the planning process.
Cescaphe is extremely organized and have a passionate group of associates that work for them. They are in the service industry and are happy to help you throughout the process.
I can only hope to receive an invitation to a wedding that is being held at one of the Cescaphe venues. Truly an impeccable experience.

Incredible and professional staff from start to finish. Larry is amazing. Emily was so on top of it. The food was over the top and delicious. Our guests say it was the best wedding they have ever attended. We agree!

It's a beautiful space and the service from Cescaphe is impeccable. We've heard from our guests that it was the most beautiful wedding they'd ever attended and the food was delicious.

As soon as me and my now husband walked into the Curtis Center we both knew that it was THE place for our wedding. Its different, open unique space is just unbelieveable. Cescaphe runs this venue and what an AMAZING job they do! Its unheard of what you get for your money. Everyone we worked with at Cescaphe was SO helpful and nice it made planning easy! I'd especially like to thank Emily, Melissa, Dana and our Matre De Larry, who was right there all day anytime I needed ANYTHING! The whole day was a fairy tale and Cescaphe's team and the Atrium brought it all together for us. All of our friends and family are STILL gushing about how amazing this place is! I am 100% satisfied and would suggest to anyone to pick this venue for your wedding! You will NOT be disappointed!! :)
