Love Notes
We had our wedding at the Prestige in September. Kirsti helped us plan the event, and she was very easy to deal with and always promptly responded to our emails. We had our ceremony on the wharf outside the Prestige (we had to book this through the City of Nelson, but the Prestige set up a signing table for us). Immediately after all of our guests went into the ballroom and were greeted with cold water, appetizers, and bar service by the attentive staff. The dinner was delicious (all the guests said so!) and the kitchen staff even put together a late-night taco bar at our request. The service all night was fantastic! We booked a Premier Suite in the Prestige for 2 nights (the night before and night of the wedding). The room was lovely and huge and a really nice place to unwind with some friends as well as get ready for the big event. We really can't say enough good things about our experience at the Prestige. Having the whole event there took away so much stress and the planning process was just so easy. All of the staff, from the cleaning staff, to the food service staff were friendly and accommodating. Our guests also enjoyed a number of great meals from the West Coast Grill and remarked on the delicious food and friendly staff. The muffins and coffee at Junipers also got high reviews. I had my makeup done at the Santosha Spa and myself and my wedding party had our hair done at Waves on the Lake. Both places were so accommodating, did fantastic work, and made sure we had fun while getting ready for the day! Thanks again to everyone at the Prestige for contributing to our perfect day!

Fun facts

What is your favorite part about a wedding?

Seeing the room all setup and ready to go before everyone arrives gives us such a feeling of satisfaction. Of course, we also love seeing the bride and groom arrive for the reception, that moment of waiting just before the doors open up and they are introduced as Husband and Wife to their guests!
