Sue is amazing. She is responsive to your requests and make the entire planning process smooth and enjoyable. I highly recommend Elope BC if you would like to get married in a stress free way. Sue will take care of everything, you just need to let her know your vision and even then she will guide you through the whole process. All you need to do is really show up! I wouldn't have done it any other way! Thank you Sue and the Elope BC team.

Nervous about an elopement package? DO NOT BE!

BOOK NOW! If you are a couple that is looking for an intimate and stunning wedding that is not overwhelming to plan or expensive enough to take out a loan... You've found the right place. My husband and I began our search looking for the perfect company to provide a micro-wedding. Unfortunately, we were struggling to find a company that provided the correct vibes, services, and modern aesthetics that we were looking for in a package. Luckily, we found Sue and her team at Elope BC! Sue and her team are absolute gems. They are passionate, professional, and talented individuals. Sue will go above and beyond for you to make sure everything goes smoothly on the day of your wedding. Originally, we wanted a traditional wedding; however, after our experience with Elope BC, we knew we could not have made a better decision for our wedding. The process was easy and Sue was quick to answer all questions and provide information as needed. If you are unsure like my husband and I were about going with this route... DO NOT BE! You have found the right place. We have no doubt you will have a beautiful and unforgettable wedding.

*Our talented photographer was Joelsview Photography and the venue was in Summerland.

Highly recommend for nervous people !!

I highly recommend sue and her team, they made our elopement amazing and even though I was nervous and needed a moment after we walked down the aisle to breathe, I was allowed to take a little walk just me and my husband and just relax for a moment! Everything leading up to the elopement with communication was amazing and anything silly little question I needed to ask, she answered it as best as she could to every single one of them!
We were originally suppose to get married at the black container box but she took our guests into consideration as we had a few with mobility issues and were able to get the south Thompson inn spot as well to make sure she could make it ❤️ she made our speech very beautiful and covered everything so we choose not to have vows(which I’m glad I didn’t, as I was messing up words anyways from being so nervous)..

I highly recommend Sue and her team! ❤️😊

Our Wedding Day was Extraordinary & Magical!

Elope BC is run by amazing and talented individuals. Sue’s beautiful ceremony made us so emotional and really encompassed our love story. All their planning and coordinating made our day calm and relaxed. Their hard work in finding the right locations, florals, photographers, musicians and even the custom ceremony is astounding. Everything they picked worked together so well in our Elopement. It was also nice to wake up on my wedding day and not have the chaos that sometimes comes with it. We just needed to show up at our ceremony time, marriage license & rings in hand, and the rest was taken care of. So simple, so easy.

When we arrived at the ceremony, everything was beautiful and breath-taking.
They were organized, ready to go and helped us calm our nerves before the ceremony began. The biggest advice they gave to us before the wedding (and during) was to breathe, take in this lovely moment and to be in the present. That made all the difference. We were able to focus on our love and not get caught up in the nerves/stress of it all.

All in all, our wedding day was extraordinary! Thank you Elope BC. We couldn’t have asked for a better team to be part of our wedding and highly suggest anyone looking for an intimate ceremony to reach out to ElopeBC. You won’t regret it. It was definitely one of the best decisions we made and we continue to talk about how unreal and wonderful it was.

Amazing & Stress Free! We still rave about it almost a year later!

We had such an amazing wedding with Elope BC! We wanted a stress free, relaxing yet still magical elopement, and it was even better than we had even imagined, best decision we could have made! We put our trust in Elope BC for our big day and we couldn’t have been happier! They organize everything from the private location to the photographer, florist etc and all we had to do was figure out what to wear and show up! They customize the ceremony to you and your partner to make it absolutely one of a kind and so memorable. Not to mention sharing in the costs with the other couples (who you never even see!) makes it such a cost effective and sustainable way to have your memorable day! If you’re looking for an off the beaten path, sustainable, and absolutely magical elopement, we couldn’t recommend Elope BC enough! Thank you so much Sue and your team for such a special day!!
