    My husband and I recently had our wedding in the Grand Ballroom at the Bellevue. There are not enough positive words to say about our experience from start to finish –it was superb. Lisa was our event coordinator whom is fantastic, her level of professionalism, thoughtfulness and dedication are unsurpassed. The entire planning process is top notch, making us feel extremely special ie: your tasting is exclusive and held in their wine room with your own personal staff- making you feel as if you are royalty. The attention to detail continued up to the day of our wedding. Our actual day was a dream come true and perfect! The food is amazing and plentiful, the staff is top notch (many of our guests are still raving about the amazing service) and the ballroom looked radiant and not crowded even with almost 300 guests. The day could not have gone any better and we know it is driven by Lisa and her team at the Bellevue. We highly recommend having your wedding at the Bellevue if you want the best you can get!

    I had my heart set on a Bellevue wedding before I even got engaged- just being a guest at a wedding here is enough to convince you. Unsurprisingly, being on the other side of the action is just as wonderful! Caryll and the rest of the staff at the Bellevue were extremely professional and flexible to work with, making small changes to what was offered when requested and going above and beyond to make sure everything about our reception in the Grand Ballroom went off without a hitch. We've heard from multiple people that our wedding was the most beautiful they've been to, and the gorgeous backdrop of he ballroom cannot be matched in other venues...the historic aspects (lighting panel installed by Edison, for instance!) are a great bonus as well. My husband, family and I all highly recommend the Hyatt at the Bellevue to other couples looking for a truly memorable celebration.
