    Absolutely wonderful experience!

    I cannot give Elope in Banff a high enough rating. Sharon was so quick to reply and set everything up during the planing process. Every request I had was filled, and with such ease. The day before the wedding she took her time with us, made us feel welcomed, and made sure everything was exactly how we wanted it to be. Chris the day of was amazing. She was the best friend every bride needs on their wedding day. She was constantly fixing my dress, patting me down with hairspray, fixing my necklace, and the list goes on. She made me feel like a queen. I didn't even need to ask for anything or any help, as she was already there doing exactly whatever I needed done. Bryan was amazing as well. He was so good to work with. Any pose we wanted he had no trouble to photograph. He was willing to go anywhere and ask anyone to move so he could get us the perfect shot. Elope in Banff provided absolutely outstanding service. It was everything we had ever dreamed of for our wedding and 100x more. They were so kind, did everything they needed to do and more, and made us feel so special. I 100% recommend Elope in Banff for your elopement wedding. Our wedding day was perfect, and it is all thanks to the Elope in Banff team.

    We had an amazing heli-wedding day with the EIB team. They made our special day magical! We can't thank them enough for making our wedding adventure a reality. Special thanks to Chris who took care of us the entire time. She was very helpful throughout the event. Thanks to Bryan for the pictures, to Michael for the video, to Klaus as our wedding officiant and to the Alpine Helicopter team. Ken and I were an awe remembering our special day. We chose the right wedding planner. Thank you very much EIB team for making it happen!

    Great experience

    We did an elopement with just the two of us and our puppy. It was a wonderful experience. We had the best coordinator, Chris, who was so attentive so everything including things that we hadn't even thought about or forgot. Bryan, the photographer, took breathtaking photos and we will enjoy for a lifetime. We loved our team!!!

    Exceeded our Expectations! 鉂わ笍

    We cannot thank Elope in Banff enough for the elopement wedding that we had. We chose the Simply Shotgun package and we never once felt that their service or response was different since we chose the most basic one then added videography for our ceremony. We met Sharon, Twyla, Roger and Michael just before the ceremony itself but the communication with Sharon prior to the wedding has put us at ease. They chose Cascade Gardens as our location and we had so many compliments from our friends who watched our wedding live. That鈥檚 one more thing that we really loved about Elope in Banff, they accommodated our request (just the day before) to do FB live on the group we set up using our phone so that our families and friends can join us online. They made me and my husband feel so comfortable and important on our special day. Our photos are so beautiful too and came earlier than what we expected. The entire process was a breeze and if you鈥檙e thinking of a wedding planner in Banff, make sure it鈥檚 with Elope in Banff. 鉂わ笍

    Elope In Banff's reply:

    Dear Xahrina & Jon,
    Thanks you for choosing and trusting me to plan your shotgun wedding and we are so happy to know we exceeded your expectations! We were truly honored to be part of your special day. Stay well, sending love

    Incredible Service

    Working with Elope in Banff was easy from the beginning. All of the staff are very responsive and helpful. We had Chris on our wedding day as the coordinator and she was fantastic. Everything went really smoothly and we couldn鈥檛 be happier for their services. The flowers were beautiful, the photographer was amazing and the photos turned out incredible. Would highly recommend Elope in Banff, it took away all our stress and allowed us to enjoy our day.
