It happens so fast. One day they’re taking off without training wheels. And the next day they’re getting married and taking on a whole new life. So, remember this. You’re not losing a daughter. You’re not giving up a son. You’re opening the door to the next chapter. And you’ll never stop being the man they always looked up to.

But before giving them away, there are many decisions to be made. Should you make a speech, or give a simple toast? Include a bit of humor? Active host? Or honored guest? These are all topics ready for discussion.

At Cescaphe, we are there to guide and advise on everything from menus to music to budgets. When the day arrives, every detail will have been perfectly planned, so you can enjoy yourself at their wedding that will be remembered for many years to come.

We consider it a privilege and honor to bring the celebration to life – for you and the child you raised. May the bond between you remain unbreakable.
