    For a non stressful flawless experience book Elope in Banff

    Sharon, Malcom, Chris and everyone else-so many people I know couldn't believe how calm I was with our wedding.
    As you know we had to cancel our wedding twice due to Covid and I had spent a ton of time trying to plan our local "engagement party/surprise wedding" for April 2020 and then a different destination wedding in TN for May 2021. We have both been married in the past and we wanted something different and we were trying to select a destination that complemented US with our love for being together in nature, hiking, walking, meeting locals, experiencing the culture, with breathtaking scenery. This was my 3rd time in your area and I never get tired of it. It was Ed's 2nd time in the area. Our guests loved it and were so happy they made the journey and were part of our special day.
    We didn't want a cookie cutter of a wedding and we have realized that a larger wedding is just 1 big expensive party for everyone else. We wish our families could have been part of our special day but unfortunately they weren't.
    Each person that made the comment about how calm I was always shared with them how we hired a great local wedding planner who has been doing this for a long time and that we put our trust in knowing you would make our day magical, joyful and truly special and as we shared you delivered way beyond our expectations. Again everything was flawless ,the attention to detail was very impressive, and I really appreciated the help of our wedding coordinator Chris on the day of our wedding.
    I know I had a ton of questions for Sharon and I appreciate all of Sharon's help and extra re-assurance and guidance throughout the entire process.
    Everyone asked me if I was stressed about anything and I said the only stress I had was making sure I continue to fit into my wedding dress and trying to figure out what to pack for a destination wedding that had some cooler weather showing rain everyday and who knows with snow which we didn't mind it just makes packing a bit more challenging with also having a destination wedding.
    Even when we heard there was 6 ft of snow at Moraine Lake where our wedding ceremony was taking place at about 2-3 weeks prior to our wedding I wasn't stressed knowing you had booked a back up location when we had booked our wedding with you at Lake Louise and knowing we couldn't go wrong with either location. We also appreciated you taking time to reach out to us to address this as well.
    Again we can't thank you enough for everything and taking time to share your posts about our magical day as well. Can't wait to see the rest of our photos and our video. We are beyond thankful and grateful that we selected your company to make our day memorable and very special.
    Blessings to all of you and wishing all of you much continued success.
    Thank you again to all of the wonderful vendors you selected for our wedding.

    The most amazing experience with Sharon and her team at Elope In Banff

    Good morning, Sharon,

    Kirk and I wanted to wait until your return from your Italian vacation where we are quite confident you will have made lifelong memories, to write to you.

    As we sit here on our 2 week anniversary we want to thank you so very much for everything you did to make our elopement.....perfect.
    Your attention to every detail created an atmosphere of relaxation and enjoyment so we could absorb every moment and emotion in its entirety stress & worry free.
    Without running through every single moment, we need to highlight the talents of your team, specifically, Christianne, Stephanie, Bryan, Malcolm, Karyn, the ladies at the florist 馃拹 and registry office who made every stage seamless and enjoyable. It is clear that you and your team are highly regarded by the Registry office, florist, Karyn and Stephanie.
    It all added up to a day we will never forget and a day that was like a dream.
    Your personal touches such as dancing with us to our music 馃幎, helping me with my medical emergency LOL, videotaping "the reveal" so we have that memory, taking us inside 'the castle' 馃彴 for our 360 dome experience, that fantastic breakfast - WOW! The samples of Bryan's photography are, well, breathtaking.
    We could go on and on but suffice to say that even two weeks later we recall every detail warmly and so fondly that it's difficult to put into words.
    Please extend our heartfelt thanks to your entire team and to Malcolm who made our last night by the fire complete with fireside 馃敟 stories.

    We hope to visit you again and enjoy your lovely cabin and the warmth and friendship you show your guests.

    Thanks again, for making a couple of old folks feel like kids again. WE ELOPED!!馃挐

    Cindy & Kirk Ashick

    Professional, responsive, overall amazing!

    From the moment I spoke with Sharon and booked our adventurous wedding everything was so simple and smooth. They made the wedding planning process so easy... I did nothing and they took care of everything! One of the best decisions we made! They made our wedding day stress free and we got to enjoy every minute of our heli wedding. Words can not express how happy and pleased we are with Sharon, Chris and the whole elope in Banff team! Our wedding day was perfect because of them and with their amazing photography team we have pictures to make the memories last forever! I highly recommend the elope in Banff team!

    Elope In Banff's reply:

    Dear Gwen & Jeff,

    The very best elopement company

    There is simply not enough space to write about how wonderful the Carmichaels are and how good they are at what they do! Sharon made this whole elopement process a breeze for us. Looking after all paperwork, reservations, hair, flowers etc and all with a smile and happy to help. Their knowledge of Banff and its history is a plus, they know their town and will help you plan your stay to enjoy it to the fullest. Malcolm is a phenomenal photographer and gave us the dreamiest pictures we are so lucky to have. They have a great team of people who are all just as fantastic. My hairstylist Stephanie, Bryan in photography and Chris who tagged along with me and looked after me like a Queen. Anyone who wants to make their special day as perfect as can be definitely needs to look this company up! We cannot recommend them enough. I believe what makes them so exceptional, is their love of what they do. Their shining personalities show that, and you genuinely know they want you to have the best experience possible. We also had the privilege of staying at the Carmichaels Banff Cabin B and B. That is a whole other review!!! Wedding or not, you need to stay in this rustic, cozy getaway! We will be back :) We chose the Simply Spectacular heli wedding, the name says it all. Simply Spectacular! just like the treatment we received from the Carmichaels.

    Elope In Banff's reply:

    Dear S & R,
    Thank you for your amazing review, I truly have the best team and we LOVE Elopement weddings, especially when we meet couples like you.
    Best wishes for an amazing future together.
    Sharon, Malcolm, Chris & Bryan.

    Perfect Day

    Sharon made everything insanely smooth. We didn't have to think off anything. She made our elopement better than we ever imagined. Malcom did an outrageously great job on our photos, we can't stop showing them off.
