After attending Bridesmaid JJ’s wedding at the Cescaphe Ballroom, I knew I would be a Cescaphe bride too! By the time Mr. Crab popped the question, Cescaphe was operating weddings at five different venues! So even though we had narrowed our search down to one caterer, we still had a few different venues to look at. We knew that the food and drink experience would be consistent across the different locations, but that’s basically where the similarities stopped. I already knew I wouldn’t get married at the Cescaphe Ballroom where JJ was married, so there were four venues to consider.
First there was Vie:
Cescaphe Vie from L to R: Glass mosaic leading into ballroom; Massive double sided bar; Ballroom with white dance floor
Vie is a massive venue with several cool spaces. The entryway reminds me of clubs from the ’20s; behind the gorgeous glass mosaic it opens to a huge bar and behind that is the ballroom. Ceremonies could be held in the ballroom on a stage or in a courtyard area off to the side. For us, the cons to this space were that we don’t need this much space and that the decor, while nice, didn’t really fit my wedding vision.
