Courtney and Kevin’s lavish wedding celebration at the Cescaphe Waterworks was one for the books. When it came to their wedding the couple spared no expense. From the venue’s decor to the luxury wedding transportation and the bride and groom’s attire everything was glamorous. We feel so privileged to have been a part of this beautiful Cescaphe Waterworks wedding. 


Love Story


Courtney and Kevin met through a dating app about four years ago. They were immediately matched by the app and began to send messages to each other before they decided to finally meet up. Courtney was so nervous because she had nothing done like this before. 


When they finally met in person it was as if all the fears they had of meeting each melted away. “We ended up talking all night. I knew what we had was different because it did not take long for me to feel comfortable with him, Courtney remarked. 


The Proposal 

Kevin proposed to Courtney one random night while they were at home. He didn’t have a ring yet or anything and Courtney didn’t think he was serious. The next time Kevin asked her to marry him it was at their favorite restaurant surrounded by their closest family and friends. “ I said yes instantly. It was one of the best moments of my life.”


Cescaphe Waterworks Wedding 

Kevin and Courtney exchanged their vows at St.Augustine church in front of 185 of their friends and family. The wedding was followed by a reception at the Cescaphe Waterworks located downtown Philadelphia right in the heart of the city. Cescaphe Waterworks is one of the top wedding venues in Pennsylvania situated right on top of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.


The museum and its neoclassical architecture, iconic views, and elegant decoration made this wedding an unforgettable experience. We spent the night capturing everyone’s most precious moments from the first look, first dance as husband and wife, and the cake cutting ritual. Everything was perfect. Kevin and Courtney were on cloud nine and they had so much fun. Here is a glimpse of Courtney and Kevin’s big wedding reception.
