Go with the Hyatt for an elegant, upscale dream wedding
TL/DR: Go with the Hyatt for an elegant, upscale dream wedding with the amazing Chet Whisler at the helm.
Everyone needs to have a sit down with the Hyatt. They renovated their hotel in 2017 and we chose them after going through what was basically a hard hat tour of concrete, open walls, and a concept of what it would look like. The finished product is nothing short of stunning. From start to finish, the Hyatt gave us five star service and personalized care. Even past the finish, we still talk to Chet to see what he's up to and we try to go as often as possible to see what's new and exciting at The Street Kitchen and Bar. I know it's super trendy right now to have your wedding in a barn or other alternative spaces, but if you're looking for upscale and value, the Hyatt is where you want to be. What I mean by value is that you may pay a little more than other places, but what you get is exponentially more impressive than you could ever imagine. Each and every staff member carries themselves professionally and cares about your event. The entire process was just a complete delight. One note that was unforgettable - the food. The menu tasting was insanely delicious and fun, we had our own waiter in a conference room and the food just kept coming in! Chet gave us insightful and helpful feedback about our choices and all of our guests raved about the food and the garbage plate late night station. Plus, because he knew we'd be busy, Chet made sure to have two garbage plates boxed up and waiting for us in our suite at the end of the night. Can I tell you after a night of dancing and drinking, opening the room fridge to see garbage plates at 2:30am....heaven! I could go on about everything - but the one thing you need to know is that Chet is the master of elegant and well executed weddings. Anything you could worry about, Chet has a solution for. Tell him your ideas and he will make it happen.

The Hyatt Regency was the venue of choice for my daughter's wedding as we wanted the convenience of a hotel for our guests. We considered several options and none could hold a candle to the Hyatt Regency. We had the privilege of working with Chet Whisler who was absolutely wonderful from the beginning to the end. Chet was extremely accommodating and tolerant of me as I was the planner and often would seek him out for assistance. Chet made sure that the Florist/Decorator, Riverside Productions - Jesse Lucas, our DJ - Encore Events, our photographer - 13 One Photography, our Videographer/Photo Booth - Jimmy C Productions, our Bakery - Savoia, along with countless other details all blended together for a result that was nothing less than perfection for all 220 of our guests! The Hyatt's staff is amazing, the food is delicious, the atmosphere was joyful and we received countless numbers of complements from our guests indicating that this was by far the best wedding they have ever attended. The Hyatt’s staff and Chet made absolutely sure that all of our needs were met and that we were truly happy with our event and stay. We are so glad we chose the Hyatt for Holly's wedding and we will recommend the Hyatt Regency to everybody, all day long.

When it came time to venue searching after our engagement, We realized we needed a larger space due to our invite list of 350 and were anxious to find what we were looking for . After a few disappointing appointments with less than impressive coordinators and packages at places like the doubletree and Rochester plaza , Chet at the Hyatt was literally a breath of fresh air. After meeting with Chet , we returned to have the chef make us dinner before making our final decision. Needless to say, we canceled the remainder of our venue appointments. From the moment we met Chet with our parents we knew we were in good hands. His many years of experience in the business has made him by far the best in the Rochester area to handle your event or wedding . His professionalism and expertise are second to none . His attention to detail made me so comfortable and calm and never at one point did my husband and I have a doubt our day wouldn't be perfect and everything we had worked so hard to plan . We felt like a team with Chet. He helped us make decisions and guide us through every step . His communication with us was one of the biggest things that made this process so enjoyable . He always would get back to us so promptly with any concern or question whether it was big or small . Always a pleasure talking to him and always making me smile . He truly made our year of planning our big day so fun and enjoyable and I would recommend Chet and the Hyatt to anyone . The level of service we received at the Hyatt was amazing. Every detail down to planning, the room block coordinating , the whole sales staff , the cocktails, appetizers and the entree choices were beyond impressive . Their new chef's execution of our meal choices were raved about by our guests . The whole team at the Hyatt went above and beyond. We couldn't be happier with our decision to have our wedding reception there . We applaud the Hyatt and it truly was a pleasure.
