    Dream Wedding at Hyatt Regency Scottsdale at Gainey Ranch

    Bethany Samiya, Senior Event Sales Manager, did an incredible job with our even through booking, planning, and even postponing due to Covid-19. Bethany and team were communicative, thoughtful, and patient throughout the entire process. When we had to postpone from April to October, they didn't miss a beat even though it was chaotic for everyone involved. We enjoyed beautiful accommodations in a casita that was impeccably cleaned and perfect for entertaining guests. The service throughout the entire hotel from the front drive, spa, cocktail parities, and reception was spectacular. I truly cannot say enough nice things about this resort and venue, I wouldn't have changed a thing!

    Such an incredible wedding!

    We got married at the Hyatt this fall (2018), and it was the best experience ever. We had a destination wedding and did all the planning from Atlanta (which made me nervous), but the experience was flawless despite only one site visit (all else handled by phone, email, and face time). Vanessa (our Hyatt planner) and Alex were amazing. We got great room discounts for our guests. I loved the guest room booking app, which I could monitor throughout. The food was superb for both the rehearsal and reception. The location was unbeatable and made everyone feel like they were on a tropical vacation— amazing pools! The food was top notch— both wedding events and the restaurants there. And even setting wedding events aside, there is so much live entertainment there with nightly music, Indian dances, etc. I’d been to the Hyatt for a work retreat and was so impressed, I chose it for our wedding. I was not disappointed. They exceeded our expectations in every way. We even returned to our room to a sweet card and small gift, which was so above and beyond. I’d highly recommend the Hyatt for any event. Simply gorgoeus, amazing team, and the execution was flawless.
