We prepare special menus. We prepare entrees to order. We’re respectful and attentive to seniors – and likewise to every child in the room. We do everything we can to make every guest feel relaxed, comfortable and important. But the larger question remains: “What are the expectations of guests at a wedding?” It really depends upon you, the brides and grooms, because you set the tone that allows your guests to have fun. For when your guests have fun, your wedding will be transformed from an event to a celebration.
After all, the occasion is about people coming together and the sentiment should extend to your guests, who often bring the wedding to life. Not just for themselves, but for the entire wedding party.
Located in Philly’s vibrant Northern Liberties, Tendenza is a sleek and chic contemporary space inspired by the cutting industrial style of New York lofts. When you want your wedding to make a unique statement, nothing else in the city comes close.
Capacity: 150 – 240 guests
Located on Philadelphia’s famous Avenue of the Arts, The Lucy encompasses the Cescaphe brand’s reputation for sophisticated, luxe venues. European inspired brass chandeliers illuminate marble accents and ivory wall paneling for a warm traditional aesthetic.
Capacity: 150 – 325 guests
After all the planning and preparation, all the weeks and months of expectation, all the hustle and bustle of the final hours before, you deserve a day without a worry in the world.Learn More
