CTO Artists Played Three Wedding Receptions in Philly, Ocean City and Burlington County

Played Two Wedding Receptions

CTO Grand Central Band Played Wedding Reception at the Downtown Club, Philadelphia

We always feel great when a wedding reception goes exactly as planned from beginning to end! That was the case for the newlyweds, Mr. and Mrs. Cody, who were beyond thrilled! The reception was held at The Cescaphe Group venue at the Downtown Club is across the street from Independence Hall, and there isn’t a more perfect venue for a wedding than the Downtown Club. We often work with the Cescaphe Group and value their professionalism and years of experience creating dream weddings. The experience they design is always exceptional and we enjoy learning from them (because they are the best).

Melanie and Nick –

Melanie and Nick from George Street Photography were exceptionally professional and easy to work with. And we had a blast having dinner with them in the green room! This was an excellent party at one of our favorite venues! The acoustics in the room always makes it sound amazing there.

The bride and groom approached us after our last song and thanked us repeatedly, which is always a treat for any wedding band. The bride said, “This was beyond my wildest dreams, thank you so much” … I’d say the credit goes to everyone involved that day.

CTO Midtown Express Played Wedding Reception at the Wave Hill Public Gardens, New York

With an intimate reception of family and friends, Josh and Elaine enjoyed their special day at the beautiful Wave Hill Public Gardens In New York. The creative team behind the scenes went to great lengths to make sure that Josh and Elaine’s day was perfect. Wedding planner Amy Shack Egan of Modern Rebel Co., our Point of Contact Emily Schreiber of Great Performances and Michael Wiertz of Wave Hill was the ultimate trifecta… keeping us up to date with any and all details, changes, and requests from the happy couple.

Amanda and Joe Vellekamp of Kamp Weddings and Mike of We Cinema moved across the dance floor non-stop, working every angle to make sure they captured the essence of the love and happiness in the room. They even joined the conga line during “Hot, Hot, Hot”!

Once the couple, their friends, and their family joined the band on the dance floor, they never left! We ended the night in true New York fashion, performing the timeless classic, “New York, New York”. We received countless thanks from the bride, groom and their guests, which was the highlight of an incredible night and performance. Amy didn’t let us leave before telling us she couldn’t wait to have us back in New York ASAP!

What an amazing celebration Kelsey and Cody had at the awesome Huntington Valley Country Club, where the views are breathtaking and the staff really knows how to take care of you! CTO Tribeca had the honor and privilege of spending the night performing and partying the night away like never before with an especially fun group of family and friends. All of the vendors worked together seamlessly to make the night magical for the happy couple. Lisa Marie Chimento of Kaleidoscope Solutions was no stranger to how we rocked the party as we have worked with her on so many amazing parties. It was great to reunite with her. We already knew we were in great hands and the night went off without a hitch! Ashley Brown of Shining Light Photography was part of this dream team of vendors and captured some amazing moments. Can’t wait to see those pictures Ashley! On behalf of CTO Tribeca and CTO Artists, congrats to the newlyweds and happy honeymooning!
