Hyatt House Jersey City Bridal Preps
Sharon and Kellan began their day getting ready at the Hyatt House in Jersey City, surrounded by their loved ones and the adorable white pup that they brought with them on the day. Sharon’s planner, Genesis Weddings, was a huge help in ensuring that everything ran smoothly, even when the pup had an accident in the bridal suite. Hair and makeup artist Vicky C5 NY did an amazing job on the girls and even touched up the groom, Kellan. The guys looked dapper and chill in their Indochino suits.
Bridal Party and Couple Photos at Hyatt House Jersey City
The couple had originally planned to do their first look by the Hudson River, but unfortunately, the noreaster made that impossible. Instead, they found a beautiful glassed-in room at the Hyatt House that was being set up for a party. The hotel graciously allowed them to use the room for their first look and bridal party photos. The room had beautiful natural light and gave a very soft and beautiful feel to the photographs.
