The Most Magical Day

Where to even begin - our wedding day was a complete dream and so much credit goes to Andrew Hoge and his team at the Fairmont Olympic. From introduction to execution, no detail was overlooked. Andrew thought of everything, was quick to respond, and made our day seamless and beautiful. The Garden Room was the perfect venue for the reception we had envisioned and it truly came alive with the help of so many. The food was exceptional and everyone commented on how delicious everything was. The staff was friendly and everyone felt so well taken care of. I wish we could do it all over again, but trust me you don't need to look anywhere else - the Fairmont will give you everything you want and more. Thank you Andrew and Team, we are so grateful for everything you did to make our day so special. Xo, The Smiths

The Fairmont Olympic made everything so perfect on our wedding day! The hotel was as gorgeous as we'd hoped, the food was phenomenal and the cake was divine. We heard nothing but great things from our guests about the staff, from the banquet team to the valet to the bellmen, all of them were amazing. We felt pampered and taken care of from the moment we stepped foot in the hotel. The staff thought of everything, down to the smallest detail, and I'm happy to recommend this venue and hotel to anyone and everyone that will listen!
