As a wedding photographer, we have years of experience shooting various locations and venues in the New York Metro Area (literally – we’ve photographed over 300 weddings!). When navigating the wedding planning process, it can be so difficult to figure out venues, vendors, logistics, and budgets. We thought it would be helpful to give some information based on our experience photographing weddings at Hudson House. See more below!
Situated at the end of Port Liberté in Jersey City, Hudson House boasts stunning views of the entire New York City skyline and Statue of Liberty from its perch on the Hudson River. The newly built venue is the perfect balance between modern and timeless, with soaring cathedral ceilings in it ballroom with marble flooring throughout the building. Multiple locations from the Grand Ballroom to the Hudson Room to the outdoor rooftop and Gardens create a unique atmosphere for guests that will flow throughout the wedding.
Hudson House is run by Landmark Venues, a mainstay in the New York metro area event scene. With an in-house coordination team, you can rest assured every detail will be accounted for. Their celebration experts will help you create everything from your custom craft cocktails to your farm-to-table menu and bring your wedding vision to life.
You can have up to 300 of your friends and family by your side for the wedding and seated dinner. Multiple spaces, including the outdoor gardens and Hudson Room, means that you have flexibility depending on weather and even up to 500 guests for some events.
What’s also great about Hudson House is that it is perfectly located. Less than 30 minutes from Manhattan by car, it is easily accessible for your guests but feels like a world away. Local hotels in New Jersey are close as well.
While the flowers may fade, the guests may go home, and your gown goes into the closet….your photos are the one thing from your wedding that holds its value. It’s not just about having someone with a professional camera to come and simply document your wedding.
You don’t want to scroll back through your photos and think “Yup, that’s what the day looked like.” You want to hold your photos in your hands and say, “This is what the day felt like.”
Investing in a photographer that can truly capture the ambience and love in your day. From the in-between candid moments between you and your partner to the laughs of your college best friends during the cocktail hour, every moment matters. A photographer who can not only capture these memories but also make you feel at ease and comfortable is the best investment you can make.
