A successful wedding is made of hundreds and thousands of moving parts, all working perfectly together at just the right time. That’s why, at Cescaphe, there is no such thing as a small detail. Everything must be planned, monitored, and managed to perfection—from making sure every vendor is sticking to the timeline to replacing a single faulty light bulb.
Our Events & Operations teams have this down to a science; but that doesn’t keep them from constantly working even harder to make sure every single wedding is executed flawlessly and every venue is impeccable.
Every single chair is personally inspected to make sure it is placed flawlessly in front of the place setting and that it “kisses” the table linen.
Each table linen is inspected to make sure it impeccably puddles on the floor.
Polished Place Settings
Every piece of silverware, china and glass is inspected and polished.
The morning before every wedding every single light bulb is inspected to make sure it shines perfectly to illuminate your wedding.
Meet Your Maitre D
This is it. The wedding day. When the venue, the planning and preparation, and thousand and one precise details and special touches all come together. And there to orchestrate it all, to assure that every part is played to perfection, your Maître D’ is there throughout.
What better time to dream big dreams? To go beyond the expected, the conventional, the tried and true? If you have a vision of your perfect wedding, we’d love to hear it. Because nothing gives us more satisfaction and delight than working with brides and grooms to help make their fondest wishes come true on their special day.Learn More
We take your wedding day as seriously as you do. Each and every wedding receives our full attention.
