There's nothing we love more than discovering exclusive services at our favorite hotels. Though some of these services may be a tad over-the-top, others provide truly unique experiences for their guests. One of our favorite one-of-a-kind guest services comes by way of the Proposal Planner at the Fairmont Pacific Rim in Vancouver. As the only hotel "Engagement Concierge" in Canada, and possibly the world, Kristie Kent is a dream-come-true for any hopeful-grooms needing some help with popping the question.
We recently sat down with Kent, officially called the Fairmont's Special Event, Wedding, and Proposal Planner, to talk everything engagement and wedding-related. Since taking on the prestigious position, Kent has worked alongside her clients to create completely unique experiences by customizing the hotel's proposal packages. Options start at just $200, but can go up to $11,000-plus with options such as the "Rock Star" package, which includes a chauffeur-driven BMW, a jeweler visit with a personal shopper, and a candlelit dinner on the rooftop terrace of the Owner's Suites (a.k.a. the "Rock Star Suite"). The hotel also offers a la carte options for proposals, with romantic amenities such as horse-drawn carriages, private sunset cruises, spa treatments, and more. Check out our interview!
