A Modern Ivory Wedding At Cescaphe Ballroom In Philadelphia, PA

Cescaphe Ballroom is one of our favorite center city Philadelphia wedding venues! The ballroom and the surrounding area is stunning. The ivory stone buildings provide the most timeless backdrop for photos.

Camille & Mark picked a color palette of champagne, blush and rose gold tones to complement their classic and crisp vibe at this Summer wedding. Cescaphe Ballroom was the perfect venue choice for the romantic feel they wanted. For décor, they picked greenery and tons of candlelight. The vibe of Cescaphe is 1920’s Great Gatsby, and the two appreciated the large mahogany bar and architecture of the building. At their reception, C&M had an ice sculpture as an ode to the “LOVE” statue in Love Park, as they started dating in the city of Philadelphia. In lieu of traditional favors, C&M donated to the National Alzheimer’s Foundation for each wedding guest to honor Camille’s grandma passed from Alzheimer’s and could not be with there on their wedding day.

From The Bride

“Picking a venue can be super stressful. We had heard about Cescaphe Weddings but have never been to one before. We had been on a few tours at other venues but were not completely blown away. When we walked into the ballroom, I started to cry. We both knew this was the place that we would be getting married. There is so much charm about the ballroom, as it used to be an old movie theatre. We loved the character in the building, all of the original décor, and the bridal suite overlooking the guests. It was perfect.”
