    I have seen more and more people joining the forum and having as much trouble as I was finding out information on The Majestic Colonial. So I figured I would help out others by posting all the information I have in one place for everyone to easily find. I don't have much on The Majestic Elgance but since they are sister hotels from what I have seen or heard they are pretty similar other than the Elegance has an Adults Only Area.

          Thanks, great info. It is quite true that not much information is available on the Elegance. I have no idea what I'm getting into but I don't sweat the small details at all.

            Great post. The Colonial is an amazing resort. I'll be going to the Elegance for the first time next week to shoot a few weddings. If there is any info I can add to help the Elegance brides I'll definitely do so.

            If you have any specific questions that you would like me to ask in person post them here and I'll get your the answers while I am there.

                No I am not sure that was the last information I had that she moved from the Colonial to the Elegance. The coordinators seem to change all the time but I am sure that no matter who it is by emailing the address you will get one of them.

                    Hey ladies :) I photographed a wedding at the Majestic Colonial last April and you can see the pictures under Weddings on my website Robyn Louise Photography Shopping Cart - Williams Lake, BC - click on Kim and Jeff (about half way down the page). This is the entire gallery of images that I shot while at the Majestic Colonial so hopefully it gives you some idea of what a Gazebo wedding and restaurant reception would be like!
