Canadian Destination Weddings – Fairmont Chateau Whistler

With hotels all over the world, the Fairmont brand of hotels has made a name for itself in beauty and service.  The Fairmont Chateau Whistler is no exception!  With phenomenal service and stunning views, it’s no wonder this hotel is a popular conference, event and wedding venue for guests from across Canada and around the world.  On my most recent vacation to Whistler, I obviously had to pop in for a visit!

 

When walking in the Great Hall, I was greeted by the hotel’s charming staff and beautiful high vaulted ceilings.  The size and beauty of this hotel will take your breath away.  While visiting the hotel I was lucky to be treated to a delicious lunch and a tour of both their ceremony and reception venues by Tracy, their Conference Sales Coordinator.

 

First stop on my tour was the Grill Room.  When I imagine a ski lodge wedding, this is exactly what I envision.  This room can be transformed from a rustic ceremony to an intimate reception, and is perfect for weddings of up to 60 people.  For couples passionate about wine, a certified Sommelier can also be requested for a wedding (wow!).  Adjacent to the Grill Room is a private dining area perfect for a rehearsal dinner with friends and family before your big day.  This room is closed in by floor to ceiling windows, and can accommodate up to 20 people.

Next stop on my tour was the stunning Rooftop Chapel and Woodlands Terrace.  The Rooftop Chapel is my favorite ceremony venue at the hotel.  Who wouldn’t want to say “I do” in front of the beautiful mountains (Me! Me!)?  In summer, the venue can seat up to 400 people outside while in winter, it can seat up to 18 people inside the Chapel.  Despite the Chapel being more suited to only the most intimate of weddings, it does offer two fireplaces that add to the intimacy of your wedding day.  In the summer months a large white tent is built on the Terrace for a ceremony and reception.  This is ideal for larger weddings of up to 400 people.

If you aren’t already gushing over the different venues around the hotel, you are going to be impressed by their catering selection!  Here’s an example of a plated dinner menu.  I dare you to not be drooling after your done reading;

Roast BC Mushroom Cappuccino – herb crème fraiche
24 Hour Braised Short Rib – celeriac puree, roasted Pemberton root vegetables and cabernet jus
Strawberry Indulgence – cheesecake with strawberry sauce

 

How delicious does that sound?  To even further impress your guests, you can also serve up a slice of wedding cake.  The Fairmont Chateau Whistler offers many different styles and sizes, including the flavors; chocolate (available in gluten-free), vanilla (available in gluten-free), red velvet and carrot.

 

To make sure that additional décor is setup, day runs smoothly, and your personal needs are met the Fairmont Chateau Whistler requires that all weddings booked at the hotel bring a wedding planner or day of coordinator.  Since a venue coordinator and wedding planner have different responsibilities, I greatly respect their decision to ask this of their clients and have seen firsthand just how much smoother a wedding can go when a venue coordinator can purely focus on the venue operations.

 
I hope you enjoyed this blog post.  Next Sunday I will be introducing you to Whistler Blackcomb!

 

Sending my love to you and yours! <3
