Married at hotel Mac
My husband and I got married at the Fairmont MacDonald, we expected a Fairmont experience going in with the price we were paying. The wedding coordinator was horrible at getting back to emails promptly considering we can so much to coordinate and plan. We talked about the floor plan many times and when my bridal party showed up for the reception, they had to re organize everything because the hotel had made so many mistakes, our photo booth was not set up, even though I had purchased all the equipment, I had no where to put it, so it all went to waste. And random hotel guests that we did not know were allowed to wander through our reception and take pictures of the event!
It was a beautiful space and the food was amazing, but after all the extra stress I had because of their difficulties, it was not worth it. The bartender was over serving drinks because it was an open bar and they just wanted to charge us as much as they could. Completely shocking.
Our guests who had allergies were not provided with a dish that they could eat after we were assured that they would. The chef had to come prepare them other food last minute.

We Wouldn't Have Had It Any Other Way!
We had the best experience planning and having our wedding at the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald. Julie, the wedding and catering coordinator, and the staff went above and beyond our expectations to make sure we had everything planned the day of. The building itself, the service, and the food were phenomenal. All our guests couldn't stop raving about the food. When we came to our room the night before the wedding they had put a fancy cheese, cracker, and honey (which they make on site or the bees do) platter out for us and after our ceremony there was champagne and strawberries. We were so busy with everything else we forgot our wedding cake at the hotel but we called up the front desk, they sliced it up, and it waiting for us when we stopped by.
We had a smaller wedding (~35 to 40 people) and we could afford to have the wedding we dreamed of. My advice if you are interested in having a wedding here is to outline a budget before you go look.

High quality service!! Outstanding rooms!
We loved our wedding at Hotel Macdonald! The quality of service and food was really good. The only problem we had was We didn’t have a good communication with the second wedding coordinator that the hotel assigned to us . In comparison, our first wedding coordinator was really organized, faster to answer and attend our necessities and really responsable. After all the miss understood that we had with the second coordinator she made everything work as we asked! And our wedding was as we dreamed!

It was such a wonderful place to get married. Their food was soooo great and I could probably give them more than A+. Their service was great as well, such a nice people to be with except while I was booking the space and stuff it wasnt easy to get a hold of them.

Winter Wedding at Hotel MacDonald
We had both our ceremony and reception at Hotel MacDonald this past winter. The venue was so beautiful and we took some breathtaking pictures! All of our guests really enjoyed the food. One difficulty we had was staying in the hotel the day before and the day of the wedding. We had to check in/out to different rooms and had some items missing during this process, which delayed part of our wedding.
