The Runway Elopement experience

Here’s what a Runway Elopement at Fairmont Vancouver Airport entails:

You’ll check into your 1,250 square foot Jade Suite in the afternoon where you’ll find a welcome amenity and beautiful views awaiting you. Not a bad way to start an elopement, right? 

Once you’re all settled in, it’s time for your intimate ceremony. You’ll say your vows while overlooking the YVR runway and North Shore Mountains. Your Young Hip & Married wedding officiant will lead a short and sweet ceremony, featuring vows you wrote courtesy of our free vow writing course, while your elopement photographer captures every special moment.

You can choose to keep things intimate – just you, your boo and your Young Hip & Married officiant and photographer – or invite up to 10 loved ones to join you. Don’t worry, your suite has lots of space for everyone!

Prefer to get married outdoors? Let’s hit the beach! If you’d rather have your elopement ceremony outdoors than in your suite, we’ll meet you at nearby Iona Beach Park for a beautiful, waterfront ceremony. You’ll still have exclusive use of the Jade Suite for the day/night of your elopement.

After your ceremony, celebrate with dinner for two at the Globe@YVR, plus evening canapés thanks to your Fairmont Gold access.

Following a wonderful night in the Jade Suite, you’ll wake up to enjoy a deluxe hot breakfast in the Fairmont Gold Lounge before heading off on your honeymoon or next adventure!
