    Winter elopement 12/10/21

    I am so so so happy! Sharon and her team were everything and more. I’ll be honest, I didn’t have the highest expectations because of some experiences I’ve had before with destination weddings but this exceeded everything we could ever dream. Sharon and I have been talking for several years and she helped me with all the decisions and and was so communicative. She really took her time with us the day before to show us spots to get married and thought of everything on our wedding day including a big fur coat, hand warmers, ear muffs etc. I loved how she would constantly fix our attire to make sure we would get good pictures in… something I didn’t expect at all but loved. The sneak peak pictures also came back to us in just under 2 days and I’m so happy with them. Our photographer Bryan had the best attitude and funny which help me and any anxiety I had. He spent the whole day with us and I honestly loved his energy so much, I felt like we could have had drinks/dinner later that day and we would have loved it. Michael our videographer also helped me with any feelings I might have had and even offered to get our video back faster if we would like. I declined only because it was the holiday season and wanted him to not stress. Rob our officiant had the right amount of humor and the energy he exuded really made it seem as he’s known us forever. The girls that did our bouquet and boutonnière were amazing. They really listened and made us feel super special and had me tearing up with how gorgeous the bouquet was. I would recommend anyone to do this if they love beautiful scenery and and the most perfect intimate time. If I could I would do this all over again! Thank you Sharon and your whole team for making our winter wedding elopement absolutely perfect.

    Amazing!!!

    Sharon is an amazing wedding planner. She knows the area (Banff) and clearly loves it. Sharon knows all the best locations for wedding ceremonies and photo shoots. The day of the wedding is always a little stressful but Sharon and Malcom (photographer) made the day easy and fun. We did not feel like simple clients; we felt like friends and it made the photos feel natural. I highly recommend Sharon and her team. Our day was perfect.

    Elope In Banff's reply:

    Dear Lisa & Daniel,
    Thank you for your wonderful review and I really do love my job!
    We are so happy you had a fun and stress free wedding day, best wishes,

    They made it a really perfect day!!

    They completely took the stress out of everything from the paper work to the planning. All we needed to do was get purse ready! They were the friendliest loveliest people- professional but was like meeting old friends.
    They made the day so special and fun, I just want to go back and do it all again!

    Our Lake Louise Elopement was A Dream Come True

    We knew we wanted an elopement wedding in Canada, and we were thrilled to find Sharon and Malcolm with Elope in Banff! The entire process was so easy and stress-free, and when we had to postpone because of covid, they were very accommodating and the wait was well worth it! They made our day so special, and the photos are absolutely stunning and we will always cherish them.
    Our elopement was everything we hoped for and more, and we couldn't imagine doing it any other way or with anyone else. Thank you for making our dream elopement come true!

    Elope In Banff's reply:

    Dear Laura & Garrett,
    Thanks for your wonderful review and thanks for sticking with your dream elopement plan through all the rescheduling and uncertainty, it was worth the wait! We are so happy you came to the Rockies, and you both look amazing! Love the canoe shots.
    Best Wishes
    Sharon & Malcolm XX

    Best Wedding Planner Ever!

    We wanted a destination wedding in beautiful Lake Louise. But seeing as how we lived far away we were worried about what if something went wrong. Thank goodness we found Sharon and Malcom from Elope In Banff. Sharon took care of everything and I mean everything. From grabbing the wedding dress and tuxedo so she could steam them and have them ready all the way to planning the whole wedding and guiding us through all the steps. As for Malcolm's pictures they looked like something straight out of a movie. Sharon even gave my whole family a tour around Banff. We also stayed at the Banff Log Cabin and had Malcom's delicious muffins! We couldn't have asked for more. They went above and beyond. We will always cherish your special day. Thank you guys from the bottom of our hearts.

    Elope In Banff's reply:

    Dear Ryan & Simran,
    It was a pleasure meeting you both and your wonderful family, thanks for choosing and trusting us with your wedding day, we had a great time too. Stay well, best wishes

    Perfect wedding experience from start to finish

    We are so glad to have our wedding taken care of by Sharon, Malcolm and the rest of their team. From the moment we've met with Sharon for our orientation/tour of the locations - we knew we've made the right choice with Elope in Banff. Sharon and Malcolm gave us the perfect experience on our special day from start to finish, taking care of every detail and making sure everything went smoothly. We've never felt rushed and Sharon and Malcolm put in extra effort to ensure the photoshoot was perfect and everything was captured. We could clearly see that Sharon and Malcolm put their heart and soul into making the experience perfect for each couple. Special mention for the rest of the team (flowers, make-up, commissioner, etc..) - they were awesome! Thank you again from our hearts! - Kirill and Pranee

    Elope In Banff's reply:

    Dear Kirill & Pranee,
    Thank you for your wonderful review! We LOVE elopement weddings and taking care of you both was our pleasure. We are so happy to know that everything was prefect.
    Stay well, best wishes,

    Dream wedding in the mountains

    I literally googled "elope in banff" and came across what seemed too good to be true. After speaking with Sharon and reading the reviews we decided to take a chance and in weeks planned the wedding of our dreams. Our day could not have turned out more perfect thanks to Sharon, Malcolm and their team. They started as our problem solvers and planners, turned tour guide and by the time we left felt like old friends. Our pictures were stunning. We enjoyed every minute of it. I only wish we could have stayed in their Cabin. We cannot thank you enough!
