An Intimate Affair Shangri-La

Earlier this season I had the pleasure of attending “An Intimate Affair” hosted by the Shangria-La  hotel Vancouver.

The evening featured a luxurious table surrounded by crystals and gold adorned petals, not a detail was missed.

Guests feasted on an impeccable menu of delicacies and international flavours. The evening ended with a gorgeous sweet table, that was simply too good to eat!

The Shangri-La Vancouver offers unique event spaces, including the Conway room that features floor-to-ceiling windows and the Heated (covered) Terrace, perfect for an intimate ceremony or cocktail reception.

For more information on this venue give us a call, as we simply love it there!
