Introducing Franklin’s View: Cescaphe’s Newest Addition

Just as Benjamin Franklin made sparks fly with his famous key and kite experiment, Cescaphe is dedicated to creating that same magic for your event in this historic square that bears his name, bringing love to the one of Philadelphia’s 5 original squares. Since 1825 Franklin Square has been a staple for locals and tourists everywhere. Cescaphe is thrilled to be celebrating that history with the passion and excitement weddings will bring to the space.


Franklin’s View, the newest addition to Franklin’s Square, creates an atmosphere for couples looking to be outdoors while maintaining that “feeling of brotherly love” Philadelphia is so well known for. Just steps away from the Liberty Bell, Franklin’s View provides breathtaking views of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge and features a centerpiece of the oldest functioning public water fountain in the United States and Center City’s only carousel, the Parx Liberty Carousel. These picture-perfect moments will help create the once in a lifetime event Cescaphe is always striving for.


From creating an intimate and romantic ceremony, to lighting up the night with an eccentric and trendy reception, Franklin’s View is ready for it all. This garden chic space will be perfect for any early summer or early fall wedding lovers.

While our main cocktail tent features a gorgeous backdrop of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, this clear-top tent is highlighted with taper candlelight chandeliers and furnished with high and low tables, black Chivari chairs, votive candles for each table, and a custom bar.

The highlight of the night is a Franklin’s View reception, hosted under a luxe custom clear-top tent and illuminated with string lights exquisitely beaded with geometric chandeliers and taper candle lights.  The new garden-chic design includes Early American Barn Board Flooring and beautiful fabric overhead drapes.  Our exclusive venue will give you and your guests a celebration of the century in a very special piece of Philadelphia’s history.
