VANCOUVER, BC -- (Marketwired) -- 01/28/14 -- Of all the potential wedding gifts a couple could receive, none could rival a free honeymoon. After all, what's a china place setting compared to a week spent on a white-sand beach? And while registering for a dream vacation may not be possible at the department stores, the Renaissance Vancouver Harbourside Hotel knows all about making dreams come true.
As one of the most generous Vancouver luxury hotel deals currently available, the wedding promotion awards bonus Marriott Rewards points to couples who book select downtown Vancouver wedding reception locations like this one. The number of points is based on each reception's food-and-beverage costs. So couples who spend $15,000 earn 150,000 points, while those who spend $20,000 earn 200,000 points, and others who spend $25,000 or more receive a generous 250,000 points.
Couples can redeem their points in a variety of ways. For starters, they can use them toward accommodations at one of the more than 3,800 Marriott-branded hotels and resorts around the world, or they can use them to book golf or ski packages. Fine dining, resort activities and spa services are just a few more ways Marriott Rewards points can work for newlywed couples.
The promotion may earn couples a free honeymoon, but the reception itself is another perk. After all, this recently renovated property offers some of the most original reception experiences among boutique hotels in downtown Vancouver. Its Vistas 360, for instance, lets guests enjoy a revolving view of the stunning city skyline and surrounding mountains while they tuck in to world-class cuisine and dance the night away.
The rest of the hotel's 29,000 square feet of Vancouver event space has plenty more to attract couples. Those planning larger events may consider the Tuscany room, which can accommodate up to 250 people, while more intimate gatherings will be comfortable in a variety of other flexible spaces. A professional events team is also available to ensure that every event is as flawless as it is customised.
After the reception, the happy couple and their guests can look forward to accommodations that match the timbre of the party. Stylish furnishings, designer duvets, luxury bath amenities and flat-panel LCD televisions promise a good night's rest. And there's no better start to a new life together -- or just a vacation -- than that.
To secure the promotion, couples must book their wedding reception by December 31, 2014 and hold it by December 31, 2015. To learn more about the details, couples may visit www.MarriottCanadaWeddings.com and www.MarriottCanadaMariage.ca.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
