In 2011, Cescaphe introduced a new venue to the Philadelphia area: Vie. The venue was inspired by the elegance of French Provencal design to capture the romantic appearance of modern décor. Vie resides north of City Hall, right by the famous Love Park. Nestled in such a historic area, out of town guests enjoy the scenery and nearby landmarks. In the areas, guests can visit places such as Rittenhouse Square, Center City Philadelphia, Logan Square and Fairmount Park, all within a short distance of Vie.
Vie certainly reflects Cescaphe’s strive for excellence in their wedding venue. Cescaphe designed Vie to impress guests at every point. Upon arrival, guests are greeted with a towering champagne display, interactive food stations, and a customized ice sculpture atop a boundless stretch of seafood and hors d’oeuves. As guest flow through the ravishing cocktail space, they begin to admire the stunning details of the venue. The imported Italian mosaic, a floor-to-ceiling, custom-built panoramic bar and the breathtaking porcelain and crystal chandeliers show off the elegance of Vie.
Cescaphe has hosted so many unique weddings over the years at their variety of venues. We spoke to Cescaphe co-founder, Joe Volpe, for insight on popular wedding trends that they’ve seen arise. One that sticks out the most is many couples’ desire for both an indoor and outdoor space. Vie has a private outdoor courtyard with exposed brick walls, hanging chandeliers, and lush greenery. The open air space provides a setting for beautiful, intimate wedding ceremonies. The built-in stage will give every guest the perfect view of the newlywed couple. For couples that choose an indoor ceremony space, the outdoor area can still be highlighted with cigar roller bar, fire pit, game space, and more.
