Every Cescaphe wedding is a feast for all the senses, but it’s the culinary experience that sets the stage and raises the curtain for all the celebration that follows.
It’s ushered in with our legendary Cocktail Hour-and-a-Half—and continues throughout the event. With a wealth of choices for every course, as well as special seasonal offerings, our menus are designed to free you to be as creative and original as possible in delighting your guests.
Whatever you select, you can be confident that every cocktail, every hors d’oeuvre, and every entrée will be prepared to perfection and served with attention to every detail.
We wouldn’t have it any other way.
A Passion for Perfection
Prepared with Love
The centerpiece of a great wedding is a great meal. The moment everyone takes their seats is the moment the celebration truly begins. For us, it’s the moment of truth—when we get to impress your guests with our skill, creativity, and artistry. This is what we live for. And why we’re the best at what we do.
So many guests, so many different tastes and preferences. Creating a menu that will please everyone can seem like an impossible challenge—but not for us. With more than 10,000 weddings to our credit, no one is more experienced in crafting the perfect menu for any audience. What may seem like an impossible request to you is more than likely one we’ve already fulfilled more than once. We look forward to working with you to create an unforgettable feast.
All Cescaphe weddings feature our Signature Cocktail Hour-and-a-Half. Guests will enjoy top-shelf cocktails and gourmet hors d’oeuvres, including our chilled seafood bar, two chef-attended action stations, and a selection of 40-50 butlered hors d’oeuvres.
Top Shelf Bar
A top-shelf open bar is standard at Cescaphe. It includes over 40 different vodkas, along with a premium selection of rum, gin, scotch, bourbon, whiskey, and cordials, as well an impressive selection of beers and wines. A Signature Cocktail customized by the bride and groom adds a personal touch.
Couples can choose from our menu of 60-70 selections to create a three-course seated dinner with tableside entrée selection made the night of the wedding (less stress for bride and groom!). Guests will enjoy salad, intermezzo, and entrée prepared to order.
Every Cescaphe wedding ends on a sweet note—with an indulgent gourmet dessert display, highlighted by a chef-attended dessert station. The centerpiece is, of course, a stunning four-tier wedding cake, custom-designed by the bride and groom.

What do our chefs love as much as creating great food? Sharing their fantastic recipes with you. Here are just a few. (If anything at your wedding inspires you to try on your own, just ask.) Bon appetit!
