Situated overlooking Victoria’s Inner Harbour, the iconic Fairmont Empress underwent an incredible renovation that was revealed in the Spring of 2017. The transformation of the hotel celebrated the blending of old and new. It integrated the history of the hotel while seamlessly adding in an air of new modern luxury.
The Shaughnessy Ballroom is the perfect backdrop for a wedding: private entrance for guests and lots of natural light. I knew I wanted to play off the hotel’s new life. We had a timeless emerald ring set provided by Cavalier and to-die-for accessories provided by Atelier Elise. That married well with our touch of glam in the rose gold sequin dress provided by Kathryn Bass and the monochromatic tableware.
The florals brought back some warmth to the space with their rich colours, while also providing a nod to the West Coast in the greenery.
