    A fairy tale wedding!!

    PHENOMENAL venue!
    We had the perfect wedding here in the Colonnade Room - I can't say enough good things about the Fairmont and about our above-and-beyond fabulous coordinator Carrow. Every single thing went perfectly thanks to her and her staff. The venue is spectacular - it has an outdoors garden feel while allowing you to stay cool and dry inside. All our guest gushed about what a beautiful space it was.
    Carrow is THE BEST. She is responsive, flexible, patient, and so so funny. She makes you and your family feel like royalty while still being honest and upfront. We didn't have a wedding coordinator so we had a lot of questions for her and she answered them timely and thoroughly every time. We asked her for help on several things that were definitely beyond her normal duties and she was so accommodating and generous with her time. She reminded us to eat on our wedding day, set aside appetizers and champange for us so we could try those while having a moment to "take it all in" before our cocktail hour, and helped keep the night on track. We couldn't have done it without her.
    The food is the best wedding food I've ever had. Every option at our tasting was delicious and the pastry chef even made a special dessert for us that we requested, even though it wasn't on the menu. The tasting was a private tasting which made us feel very taken care of and special.
    The wait staff, bell men, and general hotel staff are also the friendliest I have ever encountered.
    My parents got married at the venue 30 years before we did, and Carrow even arranged something special to honor them.
    The honeymoon suite was decorated for us and had champagne and chocolate when we walked in. It was the perfect way to end the night.
    I can't imagine having our wedding anywhere else. I don't have a single bad thing to say about the Fairmont!

    We toured several venues before the Fairmont, and it sounds cheesy, but we knew we wanted to be married there as soon as we walked in. Really, I arrived a few minutes before my partner and texted him saying “This place was made for us.” The Colonnade Room is uniquely gorgeous; a circular ballroom with tall windows and a sweeping skylight, beautiful natural light, an elegant chandelier, and a center stage that gives every guest the best seat in the room. We worked with Senior Catering Manager, Carrow, and she is THE BEST. Kind, funny, friendly, experienced, and knowledgeable, she accommodated every request and answered all of our (probably millions) of questions. She made us feel so important and ensured every detail was perfect for our wedding day.
    We were married in June 2018, and the Fairmont was our ceremony and reception venue, caterer, dessert/cake maker, and hotel block. From the moment we signed the contract until a month after our wedding, everyone was truly wonderful to work with. They did SO much for our wedding weekend and ensured our guests were well taken care of. The food and drinks were excellent, and we received many compliments from our guests. So many guests told me that the servers and bartenders were funny, skilled, and experienced. Carrow and the team worked with our planner to ensure we stuck to our itinerary and did everything to make our day special. It rained a bit on our wedding day, so Carrow seamlessly moved the cocktail hour from the outside patio to an inside area. My husband and I felt like royalty getting married there, and I cannot speak highly enough of the Fairmont.

    We always knew we wanted to have our wedding in Washington, DC and planned on looking at some iconic DC hotels as possible venues. While we saw a few different places, the Fairmont was the first and it had us captured from the moment we walked in the door. Our wedding was in May and Carrow was our Fairmont wedding coordinator. Carrow and the Fairmont helped create the wedding of our dreams. We had the ceremony in the Colonnade, the cocktail hour in the courtyard/loggia lounge space. The reception was held in the Grand Ballroom.No detail was forgotten by Carrow and the amazing staff at the Fairmont. Carrow made the planning process effortless and extremely personalized as she noticeably took a vested interest in our wedding being perfect.

    The spaces used for the wedding were perfect for a wedding of about 225. The staff was extremely attentive to any guest’s needs. We are still getting guests talking about how amazing the hotel staff was. On a different level was the food. Wedding food can sometimes be bland and not well done because it is made for the masses. The food at our wedding was unbelievably amazing. People loved the mac and cheese bar during the cocktail hour. They raved over the hors d’oeuvres as well as the dinner and dessert. The wedding cake was beautiful and exactly what we wanted.

    Carrow and the hotel really did everything in their power not only to make the entire weekend amazing for us but for all of our guests, whether they were staying at the hotel or not.

    We could go on and on about how amazing The Fairmont Washington, D.C. and our wedding coordinator Carrow were. If you are looking for a venue please consider the Fairmont Washington, D.C. They will create the magical wedding you are looking for.
