    Amazing venue and even more amazing staff!

    Honestly, when we first started touring venues, Fairmont Waterfront was at the bottom of our list - BUT that was only because we had been there for an event years ago PRE-RENOVATIONS. The ballroom was spectacular - it was an absolutely perfect venue.

    The icing on the cake was truly, Nicole Folino - the coordinator for Fairmont Waterfront. I can't think of an email which she did not reply to the same day. This was particularly helpful because we were planning our wedding in Vancouver from Los Angeles. With Nicole, you are guaranteed to plan your perfect wedding! We certainly did!

    G+L I will never forget the look of pleasant surprise on your faces when you set eyes on the Waterfront Ballroom. It was my honour to be a part of your special day and I am so glad you trusted me to help with your destination wedding. You were amazing to work with and so much fun, too!

    With love from your forever home away from home,
    Nicole - xx

    If you are looking for a small, intimate, venue for your Vancouver Wedding the Terrace Room at the Fairmont Waterfront is a perfect location. Great view of the harbour and city, warm cosy room that doesn't feel like a meeting/conference room and access to amazing patio's spanning 3 sides of the building for fantastic pictures.

    We went with a buffet option, they allowed us to customise our own from their options, and everyone mentioned how great the food was. A number even rated it the best wedding food they had ever eaten. Combined with a super responsive banqueting team we had a magically evening.

    We were lucky enough to work with Nicole who not only ensured all our arrangements were dealt with at the Fairmont, but also recommended some fantastic vendors for organising, flowers, photo's. decorations, etc. She was superb and we owe her so much for our amazing day.

    Truly, the pleasure was ours! There is nothing more fulfilling than knowing we were able to assist with your special day and ensure everyone was well taken care of. Wishing you both our very best and look forward to meeting again.

    Our wedding at Fairmont Waterfront

    We had our wedding at Fairmont Waterfront, and it was such a great experience that we wish we could do it again :) The staff were professional and friendly, and the service was excellent. But I have to say the food was the absolute best

    Fairmont Waterfront Hotel Vancouver's reply:

    Thank you, Kimia! I know how important food was to your family and that you were taking a bit of a risk going with something a little more unconventional. We are thrilled you and your guests had an amazing time and enjoyed the food tremendously. - Nicole xx

    Beautiful venue and a team to help make your day extra special!

    We are so so happy that we chose to have our wedding at the fairmont Waterfront on August 18, 2018. The ballrooms, layout and space of the venue was perfect to have our ceremony, Korean ceremony, cocktail and reception. The venue also provided us with an extra room close by for me to change into my other dresses which was very convenient. The beautiful interior and chandeliers in both the ceremony and reception ballrooms went so well with my rustic glam theme.

    We can’t thank Nicole and the staff at Fairmont Waterfront enough for all they have done to make our day so special! Nicole has guided us throughout the planning process by answering many questions we had. She is professional, knowledgeable and really worked with us to stay within our budget. Many of our guests has also complimented how attentive, professional and kind the staff are at The Fairmont Waterfront.

    We would definitely recommend Fairmont Waterfront to anyone who is looking for a beautiful venue and a team that will make your day extra special!

    Brenda, you touched our hearts! Thank you for such kind feedback. It was my pleasure to be there for you and Ronald... right from the first day you showed up, I knew we were going to have a great time working together! Wishing you both all my best.

    A beautiful unique venue

    My fiance and I visited dozens of different venues but we ultimately decided to go with the Fairmont Waterfront.

    First, the entire hotel is stunning and beautiful. We rented out one of the rooms and were able to go outdoors in the sun when the flowers were blooming and the bees were out and it really made the more magical. Our ceremony was one of a kind. I really have no words to describe the amazing atmosphere that the Fairmont has.

    On top of the looks, the staff at the Fairmont are outstanding. Everyone we spoke to and worked with was super kind and professional. We always felt comfortable voicing any concerns we had or to request certain things and the Fairmont were always willing to do their best to accommodate us. Everyone went above and beyond and we really can't thank you enough.

    Fairmont Waterfront Hotel Vancouver's reply:

    Thank you from all of us at Fairmont Waterfront! I recall our first meeting early April; it was a dreary day however despite the drizzle, your faces both lit up at the sight of the Garden Terrace and in that moment, it just seemed to be the perfect fit for your summer ceremony vision! We sincerely appreciate you allowing us to be a part of your magical day and wish you all the best. - Nicole
