    A fairytale wedding in a Pandemic

    We contacted Kim and Kathy in October about a winter wedding and by December 5th we were married! They provided us with a list of recommended vendors and kept in touch along the way to ensure we were all ready. The day of the ceremony was the first time meeting them face to face and we felt they were part of our family! The grounds are beautiful and everything felt so magical. The words we exchanged in our vows spoke so deeply to us so it was perfect! Then the rest of the time was spent taking pictures and they knew how to capture the moments that will stay with us forever. We loved our wedding and so glad we chose Kim and Kathy.

    Elope Niagara's Little Log Wedding Chapel's reply:

    Thank-you so much Bev, we are happy you had such a great day and the weather co-operated as well! It was lovely meeting you both and hope to see you for a vow renewal :) Kim and Kathy

    Loved our Micro Wedding!

    Although it felt a bit rushed on the day due to tight time schedules, the whole wedding was fantastic and our pictures turned out great. It definitely felt like our special day and our special moment.

    Thank-you June! We are happy you had a special day, we enjoyed meeting everyone and loved the custom prop you brought too! warmest wishes, Kim and Kathy

    Your search is over!

    Congratulations... Your search is over! If you are looking for a unique ceremony, surrounded by the natural beauty of the Niagara Region; look no further. My husband and I tied the knot on the 19th of September, and it truly was the best day ever. Kathy and Kim were an essential part as they exceeded not only mine (bride's choice 😉), but everyone's expectations. From the moment of first contact to the big day itself, everything was hassle free and smooth sailing. This also included rescheduling our original date of May 2nd, due to the pandemic. Not every couple has been as fortunate to work with a caring venue during these troubling times. Put your trust in Elope Niagara and their list of preferred vendors, which is critical when planning a destination wedding to boot. Thank you, from the bottom of our newlywed hearts! ❤

    Thank-you Karina so much, it really was fun meeting all of you and we are happy you had such a great day! The weather was perfect for you too :) warm wishes, Kim and Kathy

    Perfectly Beautiful Wedding

    We just got married here in Elope Niagara last August 12. When we got there,all we knew is that it will be just a simple, brief and small wedding but we were surprised when it turned out amazingly beautiful! The place is stunning and the weather was perfect. Kim and Kathy handled the event from booking to the end of the ceremony with professionalism and friendly approach. They gave us a warm welcome and made us feel comfortable as soon as we got there, as if we were a family. Even with the presence of our two 3-year-old grandsons who were trying to run around, lol Kim and Kathy still made the ceremony fun and beautiful. Our photos also were all beautiful. They made us all look beautiful. lol We can't thank them enough for giving us this once in a lifetime dream wedding experience.A stunning place,right people, beautiful day, thus, perfect wedding. Highly recommended, 5 stars !!!

    Thank-you Emerita! We enjoyed meeting both of you and your family too. The kids were just too cute :) So happy you had a beautiful day and that we could be a part of it. Warm wishes, Kim and Kathy

    Simply Beauiful

    We were married on Sept. 10, 2019. From a business perspective, Elope Niagara is professional, courteous, responsive, and love what they do. Elope Niagara is unique because the owners, Kim & Kathy are professional photographers who are passionate & that means great photos that will last a lifetime! The grounds are simply breathtaking, the little chapel is charming and romantic. They offer a stress free wedding package by going the extra mile with a vetted vendor list that includes, hotel, hair/ makeup, florist, and limousine service making your wedding planning and day a stress free experience. If you're not comfortable around a camera, or feel you're not photogenic, (like us) this venue will change all of that! I highly recommend Elope Niagara for its quality service, value, romantic setting, and beautiful pictures.

    Wonderful Wedding Experience!

    My husband and I couldn't be more happy with the way our wedding day turned out. When we first booked our wedding date with Elope Niagara- Little Log Cabin we received stress free communication and planning. Kathy was very professional and easy to arrange everything with, right up to the moment we arrived for the ceremony. This put both our minds at ease and made our day very stress free.
    The chapel is in a very beautiful location and we couldn't have asked for a nicer ceremony with our family and friends.
    Our photos turned out beautifully and they even took some additional time to make sure we got lots of different styles and backgrounds. They were also very prompt with getting the picture previews sent out to us as we received the proofs the next day.
    We would highly recommend this little chapel to get married at especially if you're looking for a beautiful stress free way of doing it.
    Thank you again to everyone at Elope Niagara for making our wedding day one we will cherish and never forget!

    I'm yet to be married but they have been amazing in helping with my process!

    I'm excited to be married here this summer! I was given referral from a friend who had previously been married there! I checked them out and I can't wait! They have helped me from day one and have been very accommodating in helping me through this process. I would highly recommend this venue if you plan to elope or want a small intimate wedding!

    Elope Niagara's Little Log Wedding Chapel's reply:

    Thank-you so much Colleen! We love what we do and are very happy to be helping you in any way to make your wedding a stress-free and enjoyable experience. Looking very forward to meeting you both :) Kim and Kathy

    Disheartening

    They cancelled our wedding due to COVID and then refused to return our deposit. I understand it is not their fault they had to cancel, but it certainly was not ours. They also responded to our request for a refund and our request for a different date by ignoring our calls and emails. This is not how to run a business. And it's not how to treat people. I would not recommend trusting your special day to these kind of people.

    Elope Niagara's Little Log Wedding Chapel's reply:

    Hi Susan

    We are so disappointed that our transactions have come to you writing this inaccurate review. As we are a business dealing with advanced bookings, our policy is that the deposit is non-refundable as outlined on our web site and contract.

    In March of this year as we all know, our government shut down the province and only essential workers were allowed to operate. We sent out an email to all of our couples advising that we have to stop operating temporarily and we offered an opportunity to re-schedule a wedding date with no penalties or fees.

    The last correspondence from you we have, is an email requesting June 20th morning as a re-schedule date however you indicated you were having an issue obtaining the marriage license. We have not ignored emails or phone calls from you Susan, in fact we have tried to assist you in every way. We work very hard to take good care of all of our valued customers.

    You were advised that we were back in operation since the province went into Stage 2 (in May )and presently being in Stage 3 we do ceremonies outside with social distancing. We are happy to offer you another 12 months of date choices to re-schedule if you still wish to be married. There will be no penalties or administrative fees.

    Please give us a call so that we can work together to make a special day for you.
    Warm wishes
    Kim and Kathy

    We're Simply Meant to Be- Thank You Elope Niagara!

    The ladies at Elope Niagara do such a great job. Our big day was intimate and special with all the extra little touches we had hoped for. (It was a Halloween wedding) They took care of everything so we didn't have to stress or worry about a thing, we got to enjoy every minute of our special day in such a beautiful location and setting. We also received the most beautiful photos, memories that will last a lifetime. We couldn't be happier. Wouldn't have changed a single thing!

    Elope Niagara's Little Log Wedding Chapel's reply:

    Thank-you Sabrina! Hallowe'en is our favourite time of the year! Themed weddings are just so much fun and it was a pleasure seeing you 2 ghouls become one :) wishing you candy kisses, Kim and Kathy
