How did you meet?
Scott and I met on a random Saturday night out at Tavern on Camac in Philadelphia in 2005. We decided to go out on a date a few weeks later.
How did the proposal happen?
Scott proposed to me on Christmas morning, 2019 😊
Why did you choose a Cescaphe Wedding?
Scott and I had never been to a Cescaphe wedding, but when we were visiting venues, we REALLY loved Tendenza, and we wanted to have our wedding in the City. Tendenza really matched our style and we loved the vibe! My sister had been to a few Cescaphe weddings and raved about the food and service. We loved having a recommendation from a family member.
What was your favorite part about wedding planning?
Getting to pick out the details was really fun. The menu planning session might have been the most exciting part. We loved picking out the linens, entree selections, signature cocktail, etc. Our parents were able to attend the planning session, and they were very excited to be included and be a part of it!
What was your favorite part of your wedding?
This may sound odd, but our favorite part of the wedding was right after our Ceremony (at Tendenza) Scott and I went back into the wedding party suite and had a moment to ourselves. It was awesome and so sweet! Our maître D was so kind and brought us some food and drinks. He knew that we wouldn’t have much time to eat, so he brought some items for us to enjoy before we went to greet our guests.
What did you do to make your wedding day extra special?
One thing that was special for Scott and I was that we arranged to have the Nittany Lion attend the wedding. Scott and I are proud Penn State alums, and having the Nittany Lion at our wedding was like a dream come true!
What advice would you give to future brides and grooms?
You’re in great hands with the Cescaphe team! They are super helpful and were so helpful with planning and helpful tips! I would also say to really try to soak it all in!!!
