Superbly talented, supremely creative, thoroughly experienced, and—most important of all—passionately dedicated to the art of celebrating the most joyful of all occasions:

Your wedding day.

Client Development

I start to work with brides and grooms (and often their parents) as soon as they first call Cescaphe. I describe the extensive Cescaphe wedding experience in detail, tell them all about our venues, and help them decide which one will be the ideal setting for their celebration. I can’t wait to learn about your plans for a perfect wedding of your own.

Event Coordinator

This is where the magic begins. Once you’ve set the date and venue, your Event Coordinator will help guide you through the planning process—from securing hotel rooms to suggesting the best vendors for your style and budget. About three months before the big day, you’ll meet to choose your menu, design your wedding cake, and finalize other details. At every step, your Event Coordinator will be there to answer your questions and share our unmatched experience in creating picture-perfect weddings.

Event Manager

As the wedding countdown enters its last few weeks, you can rely on your Wedding Manager to handle every last-minute detail. And, on the wedding day itself, to be tirelessly making sure that everything from cocktails to dessert comes together in perfect harmony. Leaving you free to enjoy the happiest day of your life.

Chef

"My career has encompassed a wide variety of cultures and cuisines. At Cescaphe, it is a privilege to apply that experience to make every wedding not just an event, but a work of art in which all our skills, talents, and creativity come together in a joyous, unforgettable celebration." —Executive Chef Joe LaPorte

Maitre d’
