I’ve been to a wedding at the Ballroom at the Ben and thought it was absolutely amazing – location, setting, food, etc.

I’ve also been to a wedding at another of the Cescaphe locations (I think the flagship) and have to say that the food there tops any wedding I’d been to before or since, but the setting wasn’t as great. Not sure about TDC though.

@crackktheskyy:  Good luck with your planning! 

I’m hoping to visit Tendenza (another Cescaphe location) and TDC on Saturday for a Spring/Summer 2015 wedding, and agree that Cescaphe seems to give a lot of quality for the money. 

Be sure to update us with your choice! 


Quick question, does TDC require an elevator ride up and down to the ceremony/reception space? Did you mind it?

Ahh I’m so excited for you! Congrats! 

The modern look is what’s making me a little hesitant as well but they didn’t have any appointments tomorrow to visit TDC so we will just be seeing Tendenza:(

I’m really hoping my FI will like it since I’m already sold on it lol

@crackktheskyy:  I ended up seeing Tendenza and the Cescaphe Ballroom down the street. I loved Tendenza but FI and I fell in love with the size and different areas of the Ballroom. The only hiccup is that the ballroom is completely gutted right now for renovations until March of this year 🙁

@crackktheskyy:  I was just worried about booking it without knowing what the final product would look like, honestly. Although now the date that we want (May 24,2015) is on hold for somebody else 🙁 We’re on backup and I’m crossing my fingers they cancel the hold!!
