    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.

    Elope BC's reply:

    Your elopement day was such a fairytale, we loved sharing your love story and feeling all the joy and happiness radiating out from your guests. What a magical experience, we are so glad you found us!

    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!!

    Elope BC's reply:

    Thank you so much Teresa! You were such a joy to work with and we will never forget you in your gorgeous flower crown. Thank you for trusting us, it was such an honour xo

    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.

    Our Valentine's Elopement

    Elope BC is down right magical!
    They created the perfectly intimate, visually stunning wintery elopement of my dreams. It far surpassed anything I anticipated. Elope BC has absolutely every single detail covered, and made my wedding calm, and stress free. The florist they worked with designed stunning floral arrangements, that just had my jaw drop! The photographer was professional, fun, and creative. The level of professionalism from Elope BC is top notch. From the first moment of contact, to the last goodbye after the ceremony... they proved to be committed to helping me realize the vision of my day. PLEASE if your considering ElopeBC for your special day, trust me, just do it. You won't be disappointed.

    Elope BC's reply:

    Wow Kelly thank you so much for your kind review. It means the absolute world to us that you were happy with your experience and we are so honoured that you trusted us. All the best to you and your sweet family!! xoxo

    Exceeded expectations!

    We were undecided on which route to take for our "covid" elopement, or even if we should wait a couple years to seal the deal. Then we happened upon Elope BC and fell in love with the concept and the beautiful brand and imagery! Seeing their Instagram page made the decision easy; we booked the next day. We are so thankful we decided to work with them. Our ceremony was personal, simple, but gorgeous and full of special details. Sue and the team felt like family on the day of the ceremony because of the warmth and love you could feel they bring into what they do. Our parents said it was the most beautiful, heart-felt wedding they had ever been to. Covid or no covid, we recommend working with this business if you value focusing your day on just love and family (and want STUNNING photos to remember it by!)

    Elope BC's reply:

    Oh Hannah, thank you so much for your thoughtful words. We are so honoured that you chose to spend your most sacred moments with us and will never forget your incredibly touching ceremony. Wishing you and your gorgeous little family all the best

    The most amazing day!

    The ladies of Elope BC are nothing short of amazing. The whole process was easy and effortless, sending us timelines, instructions and tips to make our day extremely special. Flowers by Minim Designs were beautiful and photographer Trina Cary made sure we were having fun while taking our photos! We couldn’t have asked for a better day!

    Elope BC's reply:

    Yay, this makes us so happy to hear, your elopement was a total dream, we loved seeing your happiness together! Such a magical day and we are sooo glad you found us!

    Spring wedding 2021

    My husband and I had the best experience working with ElopeBC. We are still in awe of how beautiful everything was. The ElopeBC team are geniuses and so is everyone that was involved behind the scenes. The flowers, the professionalism, the planning, the photos, the concept. Everything was perfect and surreal. A few of our guests said they would've loved something like this for their wedding. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for an intimate and special ceremony! So dreamy, THANK YOU!!!!

    Such a pleasure to celebrate you, thank you for your kind words, your day was so magical and we loved seeing your connection. So many beautiful moments we will relive for years to come!
