Cuisine

Every Cescaphe wedding is a feast for all the senses, but it’s the culinary experience that sets the stage and raises the curtain for all the celebration that follows.

It begins with our legendary Cocktail Hour-and-a-Half—and continues throughout the event. With a wealth of choices for every course, as well as special seasonal offerings, our menus are designed to free you to be as creative and original as possible in delighting your guests.

Whatever you select, you can be confident that every cocktail, every hors d’oeuvre, and every entrée will be prepared to perfection and served with attention to every detail.

We wouldn’t have it any other way.

Cocktail Hour

All Cescaphe weddings feature our Signature Cocktail Hour-and-a-Half. Guests will be impressed as they enjoy top shelf cocktails and gourmet hors d’oeuvres, including our Chilled Seafood Bar, two Chef Attended Action Stations, and a selection of 40-50 Butlered Hors D’oeuvres.

Top Shelf Bar

A Top Shelf Open Bar is standard at Cescaphe. Our extensive collection includes over 40 different Vodkas along with a premium selection of Rum, Gin, Scotch, Bourbon, Whiskey & Cordials. Cescaphe also includes an impressive selection of beers and wines. A Signature Cocktail customized by the bride and groom adds a personal touch to the bar.

Entree

Cescaphe Weddings feature a three-course seated dinner with tableside entrée selection made the night of the wedding (less stress for bride and groom!). Guests will enjoy salad, intermezzo, and entrée that is prepared to order. Cescaphe couples choose three entrée choices to offer their guests from our menu of 60-70 selections. Menu selections are presented on a custom menu provided by Cescaphe.

Desserts

The ending is sweet at your Cescaphe Wedding. Guests will enjoy a decadent Gourmet Dessert Display, highlighted by a Chef-Attended Dessert Station. The centerpiece is a four-tier wedding cake, custom designed by the bride and groom. From the simple elegance of buttercream to elaborate fondant flowers, our extraordinary Pastry Team brings your imagination to reality.

Meet Your Chef

I have been a chef most of my life with experiences ranging from different countries and cultures, to the high volume of upscale gourmet, to managing many restaurants and catering events in the thousands. Here at Cescaphe, it is exciting to be a major piece of the art of what Cescaphe is about.
