One shuttle bus will be taking two trips to Sayen House & Gardens for your convenience. The shuttle will depart Hyatt Place of Princeton at 3:30pm and 4pm. The trip to Sayen House & Gardens is 7miles and takes approximately 15minutes.

Two shuttles will return from the venue. They will both depart Sayen House & Gardens at 10pm.

We strongly encourage use of the shuttles as parking is limited and it makes for a more enjoyable evening for all. If you do anticipate leaving the venue early, please make other arrangement as we do not plan for an earlier shuttle.

** The shuttles are not provided by the hotel. Even if you are staying elsewhere, you are welcome to come, park at the hotel, and take the shuttle to and from the venue.

FAQs

Are your ceremony and reception indoors or outside?

The ceremony and cocktail hour are outdoors. The reception will be indoors, in air-conditioning!

My invite doesn’t say “and guest,” does that mean my significant other isn’t invited?

Right now, yes. Currently our guest list consists of our closest friends and family and actually exceeds our venue’s maximum capacity. So while we would love for you to be able to bring your significant other, we cannot accommodate everyone at this time. As RSVPs come in we do plan to extend plus one’s as space allows.

The RSVP card asks me to choose either a chicken or vegetarian entrée, can I get some more details on the menu?

Our menu will feature as much local and seasonal options as possible and has been prepared especially for us by our caterer, Emily’s Cafe.

First Course
Chilled Summer Gazpacho
with micro cilantro

Salad Course
Panzanella Salad
with cubed house-made focaccia
tomatoes, cucumbers, basil, red onion
extra-virgin olive oil and aged balsamic vinegar

Entrée
Roasted Griggstown Chicken
over Jersey corn and basil risotto
grilled summer squash with pesto drizzle

OR

Jersey Tomato, Eggplant, and Zucchini Napolean
fresh goat cheese, basil infused extra virgin olive oil
over Jersey corn and basil risotto

Assorted Breads and Rolls

Will there be an open bar?

Yes, but right now, we are only planning on beer and wine only, since that is pretty much all Alex and I consume. We will have a selection of our favorites, some local, to share with you. We also will not be having any soda or juice at the wedding since that’s not something we drink and not anything we want to promote. There will be fruited waters, iced tea and lemonade as alternative non-alcoholic drinks. We tell our vendor our final list very close before the wedding, if there’s something you think we must serve, let us know!

Where are you registered?

Macy’s and Bed Bath & Beyond, check out the direct links below.

I’m planning on coming in to New Jersey early for your wedding, what is there to do in the area?

Check out the “Things To Do” section. I highly recommend heading into Princeton, but there is also a high-end mall within walking distance of the hotel.



THINGS TO DO

Visit Downtown Princeton:

  • Walk through Princeton University.
  • Visit the shops at Palmer’s Square.
  • Check out the history at the Nassau Inn/Yankee Doodle Tap Room. Famous Princeton grads are featured as well as an original Norman Rockwell painting behind the bar. The Inn itself is on the National Registry of Historic Hotels, but is mostly under construction Summer 2012.
  • Grab a movie at the Garden Theatre or check out a play at McCarter Theatre.
  • If you’re here on Thursday, check out the Princeton Farmer’s Market. Some of the food at the reception will come from these farms!

While you’re there:

  • Grab a bite to eat:
    • Triumph Brewing Company – Great food, great beer made on the premises, great atmosphere and even live music on the weekends.
    • Winberie’s Restaurant & Bar – A fun, casual place to grab a drink or bite to eat in the middle of Palmer Square. Personally, they make the best veggie black bean burgers (next to Jane’s)!
    • Hoagie Haven – For lunch or a late night snack (this place is always open!). This place is a local landmark, you really shouldn’t miss it!
    • Sakura Express – A hole in the wall sushi place that is the best in the area. (We highly recommend any rolls listed under “Andrew’s Special,” the New York Roll is Jane’s personal favorite!) Only open during meal times, there is hardly ever room to sit. There are public benches and picnic tables on Hind’s Plaza in front of the Princeton Public Library.
  • Sit down for some coffee:
    • Small World Coffee – The best cup of coffee in Princeton. Also the coffee we will be serving at the wedding!
  • Enjoy some dessert:
    • The Bent Spoon – The absolute BEST ice cream EVER! This is “artisan ice cream,” they make it on the premises from local, seasonal and organic (a lot of the time) ingredients. There’s something for everyone, including lots of sorbet (non-diary) options. Every time we go there (and we’ve gone through a couple frequent visitor cards by now!) they have something new. This place really should not be missed!
  • Sample the night life:
    • The Alchemist & Barrister – Their outdoor patio is a perfect place to have a drink. Definitely one of our favorite hang outs.
    • The Ivy Inn – If you’re looking for a bar bar, this is it. Everything you’ve come to expect from a typical college bar in off season: pool tables, darts, cheap drinks and bad music.

Visit other museums, parks and attractions in the area:

  • Grounds for Sculpture – From their website, “tour the 35-acre sculpture park and museum with trained docents and experience contemporary sculpture.” This is a beautiful, unique spot you don’t want to miss! We celebrated our engagement at the restaurant on site, Rat’s Restaurant.
  • Terhune Orchards – A local farm available for pick your own in addition to their farm stand. They also make fruit wine, stop in for a tasting!
  • Silver Decoy Winery – The closest of over 21 wineries in the Garden State. Try the Chambourcin, it’s fabulous!
  • Mercer County Park – Just down the street from our venue, this park has it all, including the 9-hole disc golf course Alex spends most of his time at.
  • NJ State Museum – Small, but free. Located in a beautiful section of Trenton, near the Capital Building. Fantastic view of the “Trenton Makes, the World Takes” Bridge.
  • Six Flags Great Adventure – Not too far away if you need some thrills.
