Our Historic Backdrop


The Fairmount Water Works is a National Historic
Landmark, a Civil Engineering Landmark, and a National
Mechanical Engineering Landmark. It first opened its
doors in 1815 to provide safe, clean drinking water to a
city on the cusp of remarkable growth. It is situated on
the east bank of the Schuylkill River between historic Boat
House Row and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.


Cescaphe Event Group is Philadelphia’s premier
wedding brand, orchestrating over 600 weddings
annually. CEG acquired Water Works in the Fall of
2015 and made numerous upgrades and
enhancements to the space. The grand unveiling
of the venue will be on June 14th, just a month
before our event.
