Gorgeous Venue and Incredible Hospitality!

There are not enough superlatives in the English language to describe how thrilled we are with our decision to get married at the Fairmont! From the moment we first inquired about the venue to our wedding day, the Fairmont's hospitality was second to none. We worked with Kiera who was absolutely a rockstar! She was always quick and thorough in responding to all of our many questions and concerns for the whole year that were planning our wedding, and always made us feel like she had control over all the details and nuances of our event. She worked with us to make our event work for us--making special items that were not on the menu, accommodating dietary needs, coming up with creative solutions to our concerns, etc. The hospitality at our tasting and over our wedding weekend was incredible and made us and our families feel so special and well taken care of. The venue is truly luxurious. The bridal suite, the amenities, and the overall service were top notch! From the wait staff to the valet to the front desk team, everyone we encountered was extremely accommodating!

In addition to the wonderful experience of working with the Fairmont team, our wedding was truly perfect! The food was delicious (we got tons of compliments on the quality and variety), and the overall logistics and flow of the event were perfect. There were 2 weddings at the hotel at the same time, and Kiera and her team did a perfect job accommodating both and avoiding any overlap or crowding. We did our ceremony and reception in the Colonnade, which is a gorgeous indoor space that almost feels like an indoor gazebo with a circular shape and a raised dance floor in the center. It felt so unique and special and visually beautiful but also had the ease and amenities of being at a hotel. I could go on and on about how amazing the Fairmont is, but my best advice is to book with the Fairmont!

Best venue in dc!

I'm not sure where to even begin putting into words how PHENOMENAL the Fairmont is. From the moment I toured and saw the Colonnade Room, I knew it was going to be a great venue and it still exceeded all of my expectations. We worked with Carrow initially before Kiera took over for the bulk of our planning and execution and I feel so fortunate to have worked with her. She is incredibly thoughtful, has fantastic attention to detail, and was so responsive throughout the entire process addressing our many questions. She also had some great suggestions during our planning process (such as inspiring us to do a cookbook as our guest book since we're big at home cooks). Rest assured, you and your other vendors will be in great hands with her. The hotel itself is stunning and went under a massive renovation within the last several years which really shows. The Colonnade (where we had our ceremony and reception) is such a unique space to host a wedding in and our guests loved the elevated dance floor. Our guests were blown away by the service and kindness from the entire staff at the Fairmont from the front desk to the bartenders to our reception waiters and bartenders. They were so attentive throughout the entire weekend and made everybody feel at home. When we went for our tasting several months before, I knew we were all going to be in for a treat. We heard from our group that it was hands down the best food they've had at a wedding and we could not agree more. Everything from our passed appetizers at cocktail hour to reception food to our cake and brunch the next morning was top notch. We also did an espresso martini bar and dessert room that was an amazing add on. I could go on and on about the Fairmont and cannot recommend this venue enough - you absolutely will not regret it!

Perfect Wedding Venue!

My husband and I were married in the Colonnade Room, which was then flipped for our reception. Everything was so beautiful and perfect! The room is just magical - like a little countryside estate right in the middle of DC. Our guests raved about the food! But what really made our day magical was Carrow, the Fairmont’s wedding coordinator. From the first time we toured the place, she painted a picture of what our wedding would be like, and then she delivered! She was so responsive, kind, and understanding. And although I know she was probably working with hundreds of couples, she did an amazing job at making us feel like we were the only ones. She was a huge reason our wedding was as wonderful as it was. I can’t say enough good things about The Fairmont or Carrow. If you’re considering having your wedding here, definitely do it - you won’t regret it!
