How We Celebrated the Premiere of Jillian and Justin

The week of the premiere of Jillian and Justin was sooo hectic (in a good way!), in the 48 hours leading up to the premiere we travelled from Kelowna to Vancouver, Vancouver to San Francisco, San Francisco to Hillsborough, Hillsborough back to San Francisco THEN San Francisco to Vancouver … tired yet?? LOL. Me too. The morning of the premiere we were up at 5am and I was SO worried about being burnt out … we were pretty much running off of fumes, nerves and full blown excitement that day!!

I really wanted to treat our entire crew to an amazing experience to thank them for everything they did for us to make this possible over this past year. I wanted it to be special and to also ensure everyone had a relaxing experience. So we ended up reaching out to Fairmont Pacific Rim in Vancouver which I’ve been OBSESSED with for such a long time! And seeing as how Justin and I don’t have our Vancouver condo anymore, it was the perfect excuse to spoil ourselves a little bit … to say I was excited to stay here would be an understatement! We also hired Allison Kuhl to join us for the evening so she could snap some photos of this special day for us so we could share them with you!

We got REALLY lucky and the Fairmont ended up upgrading us to the Owners Suite (thank you!!!) which we’ve never stayed in before … I loved the details of the room including the white features (go figure) and the awesome record player (complete with old school records) they had in the room … DJ Jill and Justin were born this weekend. They also put Cassandra, Shay, and Mindy on the Gold Floor with us so we could all be near each other … we also got to have snacks, a little happy hour and indulged in their breakfast the next day. Delish!

We all got ready in our rooms and met for a beautiful dinner at their new restaurant, Botanist! They even created a custom cocktail for us called the “Star-A-Peel”!! This was by far my favourite part of the evening … I loved everything about the restaurant … the colour palette they chose (light peaches, baby blues, golds, and creams) and the decor! Did you see the greenery in there?! Also … that damn lighting was picture perfect! Literally! LOL! The service was ahhhhmazing (obviously … lol) and it was just such an awesome experience to sit down with everyone, sip on some bubbly and countdown to the premiere!!

After dinner, we all taxied over to the Imperial Theater where we indulged in even more bubbly and snacks including Hugo’s Churros (DROOL!!). We filled up our little popcorn bags and sat down to watch the premiere together … we shared laughs and behind the scenes stories throughout the hour! It was a pretty humbling and emotional experience for me, to have all of these hardworking people there to help us celebrate something that completely challenged every single emotion of ours over this last little while. It honestly felt a little surreal!!

After the premiere and a couple of celebratory tequila shots me and the girls then made our way back to the hotel where we sipped on a nightcap … or two … ok, we may have over-served ourselves on the mini bar and it might have been a bit of a rough morning but the mini jars of Nutella at breakfast the next day made it all better. LOL!!!

  8. Pam Hodgson says:

    So enjoyed watching the first episode on Friday, June 23rd at noon on W. I was unable to watch it on Thurs. evening at 10 so was thrilled to find it on Friday.
    However, it isn’t on at noon today, June 30th on W so I am disappointed.
    Please let me know if the second episode will be shown again sometime over the weekend.
    Great fun to watch. It seems so natural and real-life authentic.
    Thank you for this glimpse into the lives of a wonderful Canadian family.

  13. Mercy H. says:

    Hi. Just wanted to say I really enjoyed the Jillian and Justin 4 episodes-I am hoping you guys would continue to shoot. It is so cool watching all that is happening in your lives and how you tackle things. Also, I really enjoyed the music played on your show. Is there a way I can find out what songs were played? Maybe a list of sorts. It really creates a great ambience to the show. How long before baby no. 2? I know you are thinking about it. I also enjoy Love it or list it Vancouver with Todd. You guys are funny and a great team. I hope the show comes back from hiatus.

  14. Susan says:

    I hope to see your new show Jillian and Justin this fall? Don’t know when it is airing.
