Empress Ballroom - Amazing wedding experience
My daughter’s wedding was recently held in the Empress ballroom of the Hyatt Regency in Cambridge. The Empress ballroom has incredible views of the Boston skyline. This was a small wedding (just under 50 guests). The ceremony used a Chuppah (8 x 8). This fit well on the area normally used as the dance floor on the lower level of the ballroom, with room for 44 chairs for guests. The acoustics were good; it was not necessary to have an additional microphone/speaker for the officiant. We hired a music trio (trumpet, violin, cello) who were placed on the upper level. The music (not amplified) was easily heard in the ceremony area and cocktail area (which was placed on the upper left side of the ballroom). Our dinner was placed on the upper right side of the ballroom. It did not feel overly crowded at any point. Our live music ended with cocktail hour. We were able to connect a personal playlist during dinner using the house system. We had ample space for adding personal decorations (and we had many!) Hyatt easels were made available to us for additional signs/decorations. There are ledges in the room that are perfect for adding standing decorations. Family pictures were taken in front of the Chuppah pre-ceremony, then at the Hyatt planner’s suggestion, the extended family groups were photographed on the 16th floor, which was fortunately open that evening (which was a Sunday). This enabled a large number of family groups to be photographed and in another incredibly beautiful area of the hotel. The food was incredible, with many of our guests mentioning how much they enjoyed the filet. We had guests who had various food restrictions; the Hyatt was able to accommodate them with satisfying alternatives. We chose the personal preference menu. The Hyatt printed menus for the guests. A fun aspect of weddings at the Hyatt – the couple’s pictures are displayed on what’s called “the great wall”, which is visible from the glass elevators. It was very fun to see this “slide show” on the day of wedding. Although we were a small wedding, the Hyatt provided a room block and special rate for guests, all of whom enjoyed staying there. The honeymoon suite which was included as part of the package was beautiful and spacious; my daughter and new son-in-law really loved staying there. On the day of wedding, there was a bride’s room and a groom’s room available all day, with light beverages and pastries. These were spacious and were great “getting ready” rooms. The Hyatt day-of wedding planner was Brianna Silva. Although this was a small wedding, we felt that Brianna took care to treat it with equal attention as larger weddings there. We had pre-meetings with her that included a tasting with the chef, bar, and catering managers, a meeting to discuss details, and a lengthy rehearsal, all of which she handled with great patience and flexibility. She made quite a few creative suggestions that made the complicated day easier and more beautiful. Thank you, Brianna!Sent on 10/13/2019

My wife and I fell in love with the Empress Ballroom and the amazing Boston skyline views! Ashley and the entire Hyatt team helped us create a wedding that was beyond our expectations! Prior to meeting with Ashley and her team, we did not have positive experiences with venues and wedding planners. The Hyatt welcomed our vision of OUR wedding and embraced the celebration of two women! We can not speak highly enough of Ashley and her team and if we could give the Hyatt 10+ stars we would! Thank you for everything from the first initial contact, to the details of the day...we are so impressed and our guests (and us) are still talking about it!Sent on 07/31/2018

What a stunning venue with a breath taking 180 degree view of Charles river. My client's engagement image was projected on the open area that's about 10ft tall, where all of their guests could clearly view it when riding on the glass elevator. Ashley the event manager was very on top of all the details. She was kind, professional, organized and fun to work with. Thank you Hyatt Regency Cambridge for maintaining such a wonderful place for weddings!
The Hyatt is amazing! Couples have so many different options for their wedding with the Hyatt! The have an outdoor tent, 2 top floors with breathtaking views overlooking the city, or a ballroom that can accommodate up to 450 people. The food is amazing and so is the staff. I LOVE shooting weddings at the Hyatt Cambridge. :)
