A Perfect, Flawlessly Executed Experience
We had our wedding at Tendenza on October 13th, 2018. We worked with Danielle Fisher initially to coordinate and plan our big day, and then Holly Mainiero to carry us over the finish line. Throughout the process, which started with reserving Tendenza in early Spring 2017, Cescaphe was always attentive to our requests for information and eager to help plan and coordinate. In the lead-up to the wedding, about six weeks out, we had a planning meeting with Holly at Tendenza where we finalized menu options, tested out different lighting combinations, and went over the flow of the night, from rehearsal to take-home treat. Holly was really amazing during the planning and coordinating process, then knocked it out of the park on the day of. Paired with our Maitre D’ Rick, who made sure we always had drinks in our hands, food on our plates, and a very quick explanation of what was about to happen, we were able to have a fantastic time eating, dancing, and seeing our guests. A hugely impressive part of the entire evening was the fact that we were able to be guests at our own wedding, and were not involved in any decision making the night of. The venue was perfect for our style, decor, and party size. We wouldn’t have changed a thing! Thanks Cescaphe Team!Sent on 10/22/2018

Cescaphe was so wonderful to work with. They are incredibly organized, friendly, and willing to assist with anything every step of way. They handled so much of our planning that there was really nothing to worry about.Sent on 09/19/2018
We had our reception at the Waterworks and everything looked beautiful. Our guests are still telling us how stunning the venue was. Additionally, Jackie, Franco, and Elsa could not have been more attentive (5 stars to them as well). I would recommend Cescaphe to anyone.

The entire team at cescaphe from booking the venue to discussing menu planning and day of staff were all so professional and responsive. I couldn’t ask for a better group of people to work with. I was a bride with certain expectations and they surpassed all of them! The venue was incredible as was the food, cocktails and staff. Everyone is still raving about my wedding from June 6 months later. I literally have family telling me it was the best wedding ever. Although it is not the cheapest venue, the value I feel like we received surpassed the price and was well worth it! I can’t recommend working with cescaphe enough- you might think they are a bit of a wedding factory but during the entire planning process I felt like I was their only wedding! I can’t thank joe and his team enough!Sent on 01/04/2019
