    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.

    Dream wedding is here

    We had wedding ceremony and reception at Fairmont Waterfront in Aug 2019. It was beyond what I could ever wish for. We were planning our wedding in two months ans quite limited in time. Our banquet manager Nicole was really resourceful and gave us a lot of suggestions and feedbacks. She was always readily available and I cannot think of a day she wasn't available. All the other staffs were very friendly and nice. Food and beverages were as great as the reputation. Decorations were elegant and perfect for our wedding theme. A lot of our guests complimented how great our wedding was at Fairmont Waterfront. Thank you a million times, Fairmont Waterfront!

    Fairmont Waterfront Hotel Vancouver's reply:

    Thank you for your kind words, Soo Hyun! I was absolutely thrilled to receive your initial inquiry and to help see everything through to fruition with you! The two months did go by quickly, but it felt flawless and came together perfectly. I am so happy to hear that it was just as you envisioned and wish you both all my best - xx Nicole

    Wonderful venue with an amazing coordinator and team!

    Choosing a venue is probably the most stressful thing on the checklist for a wedding but Nicole made the experience a breeze. Although I was unable to meet her in person during our initial walk-through of seeing the ballroom, she made sure that we were taken care of from the very start. Shoutout to Tobias as he provided us with a very thorough walk-through which ultimately helped with our decision to choose this venue. Throughout our planning, Nicole was quick, responsive and provided us with answers to questions I think weren't even part of her job! The vendors I used, all seemed to know Nicole well and highly recommended her. The coordination between her and the Fairmont team were seamless.

    The venue itself is quite beautiful and doesn’t require too much decorations either (another selling point). The ballrooms and foyer were spacious enough for all our guests and we were able to fully utilize the space.

    I do really want to thank the entire Fairmont team at Waterfront as they made our wedding day quite magical from the beginning to the very end. There is definitely no regrets on our end for choosing this beautiful venue.

    Holly, you were a delight to work with and created a lovely wedding for yourselves! I am so glad to hear I was able to support you through the planning stages, along with the rest of the dream team who helped to carry out your wedding day vision. It truly was our honour to play a role in your special day! - All my best, xx N

    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
