We are SO excited to announce our Grand Prize in our Holiday Giveaway – a stay at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver with breakfast for two and a fresh floral arrangement by Peonies Fine Flowers! Alongside the prize, we will also be giving a ‘virtual shoebox’ to The Shoebox Project, a charity that distributes gift-filled shoeboxes to local women impacted by homelessness.

We adore Heather from Peonies Fine Flowers and have been working with her and her team for years. She is kind, thoughtful and such a wonderful listener. She takes the time to get to know our couples and what their needs are and is very detailed in her process. Her work is stunning as well, you can see just some of her magic below. Last year she created a stunning arrangement for our Christmas table, if you are wanting to add something special to yours this year, I can’t recommend her enough!

We have been working at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver – aka ‘The Castle’ – for as long as I can remember. Their experienced team, lead by the incredible Darcy Hagan, always help us to create memorable experiences for our couples. Darcy and her team are passionate about they do and are so easy to work with.

In addition to having stunning ballrooms for larger weddings and events, they also offer elopement packages, including an intimate ceremony offering on their grand staircase. This space can also be booked for photoshoots for engagement or wedding day photos. If you are looking for an elopement option, please reach out and we can connect you with Darcy and the team at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver.
