Let’s Elope

Running away with a lover is the epitome of romance. It’s wildly spontaneous, beautifully intimate, scandalously private, and succulently exhilarating. An elopement is a delicious secret held captive until after the “I do’s” have been declared and a pair of rings wrap fingers. It’s a monumental affair whispered to only a fortunate few.

We’re excited to be one of those privy to your celebration of love with the new Steal My Heart Elopement Package at OPUS Hotel. We’ll greet you with sparkly champagne and soft macarons in your stunning Signature Suite, drive you to dinner in our Jaguar, and leave you on your wedding eve to enjoy a jetted bath, movie, popcorn, and the divine four-post bed.

On your wedding day, have your mind and muscles relaxed with an in-suite couples massage. We’ll take care of ceremony details. Pick your preferred time to profess your love and we’ll provide flowers, champagne, a marriage commissioner, and witnesses… all in the comfort of your suite. Celebrate over a 4-course dinner - either behind your closed door or downstairs in La Pentola - before you make use of that four-poster again.

For those without a care for exorbitant centrepieces, political table charts, and competitive bouquet tosses. No worries. No stresses. No in-laws. Just you and your beloved.

ART+IDENTITY+TRAVEL at OPUS Hotel

Everyone’s wedding should be a unique experience – an event that stands out and splashes across unblinking eyes with brilliant colours and captivating imagery. Heads should continue to turn long after the remarkable day.

Contemporary artist Alana Rothstein, a self-professed lover of hotel rooms, is recreating moments of celebration for brides, grooms, wedding parties, and anyone else staying at OPUS Hotel with the ART+IDENTITY+TRAVEL package. Think dashes of rock and roll, sprinkles of Studio 54, zests of decadence, and flavours of seduction fused together into a freestanding art creation of memories.

Using a collection of images, taken either by the group or by her, she captures a morsel of the guests’ lives to digitally transform onto Plexiglass. After collaboration with guests to ascertain style and vision, she layers the pictures with artfully-placed, vibrant colour.

The chic keepsakes are contemporary and personal, ideal for guests or as cool gifts. Show off a provocative boudoir side, dance off single life with girlfriends, or bond with a best man over scotch.

And if it’s not your wedding, celebrate you and life with an original piece of Plexi-art by Alana Rothstein. We’re so excited at OPUS to be working with her on this unique project.

Q&A with Alana Rothstein:

OPUS: Where did you find inspiration for ART+IDENTITY+TRAVEL?

ALANA: ART+IDENTITY+TRAVEL is the result of traveling and taking pictures that never saw the light of day. My work is usually large format, colourful, high-concept art combining multiple images and transforming them digitally onto Plexiglass. I came up with the idea of PLEXI-ART, a mini version or travel size, for the person that loves hotels. It is a souvenir, if you will, that is personal and attractive enough to keep on display in your home or office – not your average snow globe. I immediately knew that OPUS Vancouver was the perfect hotel for the project.

OPUS: What do you love about the project?

ALANA: It brings me in contact with people from all over the world.  In interviews with the guests, I get to experience their time in Vancouver through their eyes.  Their personal photos give me a glimpse into their world through their lens, and, in turn, it opens my eyes wider.

OPUS: What has been your favourite moment?

ALANA: One of the best projects was a bride-to-be from Vancouver and her bridal party of eight that came in from all over the world. Each one decided to dress as a favourite icon and we created a Vanity Fair-style cocktail party for the shoot in the DEDE suite. It was a night to remember…  And yes, there was champagne.
