Downtown Fall Patio Paradise by Chair Flair and the Marriott Hotel
Rustic Fall Design by Chair Flair at the Marriott
This session started out with Glen McKenzie the Senior Catering manager at the Marriott downtown reaching out to Shannon Collins with Chair Flair with an idea to create a fall patio set that they could showcase to their couples. The idea being that you can have your Ceremony, Dinner and Bar all out on the patio all while you are enjoying the ambiance of downtown Calgary and Stephens avenue. Shannon and her team at Chair Flair created a beautiful rustic table setting, with these amazing wooden chiavari chairs. Her entire setting was accented by these dramatic blooms from Rhonda with Creative Edge Flowers.
Their second floor roof top patio is unique as it is fully surrounded by the Calgary city skyline offering a one of a kind modern contemporary feel to your wedding. All while enjoying the beautiful summer weather Calgary has. It also offers the comfort of being directly connected to the hotel, so the bride, groom and their guests can stay in the hotel, enjoying all the comforts offered at the Marriott Downtown.
All the food is catered from hotels restaurant One18 Empire. David Spero is the hotel and restaurants executive chef for all of the property’s food and beverage operations. Chef Spero has a vast knowledge of food and experience in designing impeccable menus for every occasion.
One of the greatest benefits One18 Empire offers is many of their couples frequent the restaurant so this enables them to enjoy some of their favourite dishes on their wedding day. This touch of familiarity is a one of a kind experience for many of the Marriott’s couples. All surrounded by the historic Lindam Block in downtown Calgary, as well as modern buildings like Bankers Hall and the new TELUS sky building that will blend corporate office space and residential living all in one.
