Weddings at the Fairmont

For almost 100 years, a downtown wedding at the landmark Fairmont Olympic Hotel has been the gold standard of elegance in Seattle. From the grand Spanish Ballroom to the light-filled Garden Terrace, the Fairmont offers several lovely wedding venue options.

Not only is the Fairmont known for its beautiful furnishings, impeccable service (it has the highest waiter to guest ratio of any wedding venue in the city), and delicious food, but when you book your wedding at the Fairmont, you receive a 5-night honeymoon at any Fairmont Hotel or Resort in the world!

Here at Fox's, we love having a bird's eye view of all the beautiful brides being photographed in front of the hotel. The photos of this lovely Fairmont Olympic Hotel wedding were taken by Kim and Adam of La Vie Photography. Take a look at our previous blog post to read about how you can receive a complimentary engagement portrait session with Kim and Adam with your engagement ring purchase at Fox's Seattle!

 

 

 

The Buzz on the Fairmont

Did you know that there is an exclusive hotel on the rooftop of the Fairmont Olympic Hotel, with over half a million inhabitants? Welcome to Executive Chef Gavin Stephenson's apiary!

Stephenson grew up in a family that made its own bread and jam, grew their own vegetables, and was in many ways very self-sustaining. So when he learned that colony collapse was threatening the world honeybee population, which is responsible for pollinating 80% of the food we eat, he sprang into action.

He proposed building beehives on the rooftop of the Fairmont Olympic Hotel, an idea that the Fairmont enthusiastically embraced (and went on to implement in other Fairmont hotels). Working with Corky Luster of the Ballard Bee Company, Stephenson set up 5 beehives in 2011.

Initially, the plan was only to save the bees and contribute to the environment. But after a steep learning curve, the beehives began to thrive and produce honey. The rooftop of the hotel now holds 10 hives, each one painted by a different department of the hotel. The bees travel many miles a day, and the taste of the honey in each hive is always a surprise.

Visiting the rooftop of the hotel is by invitation of the chef only, but if you'd like to get a taste of this special treat, Olympic Honey Hard Cider is produced by Seattle Cider Co. using honey from the rooftop bees. You can find it at Shuckers and at the Terrace Bar, both in the Fairmont Olympic Hotel.

There is also an exclusive ale called Honeymoon Suite, brewed by Pike Brewing Company using the rooftop honey. It is available on tap at Shuckers, and in bottles at the Terrace Bar.

The Terrace Bar also has a lovely Rooftop Honey Lemon Drop. The next time you come to Fox's, why not treat yourself to some jewelry and then celebrate with one of these delicious drinks? The bees will thank you.
