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!Sent on 07/09/2019
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.Sent on 18/09/2019
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.
Fairmont Waterfront Hotel Vancouver's reply: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 bestSent on 11/09/2018
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.Sent on 26/11/2018
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!
Fairmont Waterfront Hotel Vancouver's reply: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.

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.Sent on 09/09/2018
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!
Fairmont Waterfront Hotel Vancouver's reply: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!

A beautiful unique venue
My fiance and I visited dozens of different venues but we ultimately decided to go with the Fairmont Waterfront.Sent on 07/08/2018
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

Fairmont Waterfront wedding
Our wedding was an absolute dream!! Everything turned out spectacular. Our coordinator Nicole was very helpful from the very first day. She helped with all our accommodations and worked closely with us to ensure the day was perfect! The venue itself is absolutely stunning with its gorgeous chandeliers and a light foyer that has a beautiful waterfront view. We absolutely loved the food as did our guests. The cocktail hour, dinner buffet and desserts were all delectable. Thank you Fairmont Waterfront for making our wedding day so special. We highly recommend everyone to book the venue!Sent on 13/08/2018
Fairmont Waterfront Hotel Vancouver's reply:Thank you, Sarah! Your organizational skills were immaculate and very much appreciated in preparation for your wedding. It’s an honour to have been a part of your dream day and we look forward to welcoming you both back to Fairmont Waterfront! - xx, N

We worked with Nicole, Catering Manager. She is amazing and worked with us to carry out our vision. The food and service exceed our expectations, we were very happy with every single detail. Our guests were very happy with their meals and service. While you will pay the Fairmont price, I promise you will receive quality, value and first class service.Sent on 21/11/2017
Fairmont Waterfront Hotel Vancouver's reply:S+F, your attention to detail and vision became our passion! It was such a spectacular event and we’re thrilled your wedding dreams came true. Much love from your new Fairmont family. XO

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.Sent on 10/10/2017
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.
Fairmont Waterfront Hotel Vancouver's reply: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.
