Everything was perfect even during a global pandemic!
Our elopement ended up being during the Covid-19 pandemic. Sharon took every precaution and was absolutely wonderful to work with, incredibly professional, reassuring, and flexible, even after one postponement and a downgrade in guests. The entire planning process was a breeze and every question we had was promptly answered.
Our tour of Banff was amazing and beautiful; Sharon made everything work somehow even though we ended up having to travel in separate vehicles to maintain social distancing! She was able to make our day incredibly special, full of optimism, and was prepared for anything.
Sharon went above and beyond and it’s clear that she absolutely loves what she does and it shows! I’ll be wishing to relive this day over and over for the rest of my life. 10/10 will recommend to everyone!Sent on 16/05/2020

Best experience for the best day of our lives
Sharon was amazing to work with from the first email to the last detail of our big day. She always patient, professional and extremely helpful. She even took us on a tour of Banff and recommended places to go on our trip the day before. We could not ask anything more, every detail was perfect and she made sure our day was stress free and absolutely beautiful!Sent on 11/10/2019

Beautiful Banff fall wedding
I was recommended by a friend to look into eloping with Elope in Banff/Alpine Peak Photography and I have to say.. my now Husband and I absolutely loved the whole experience since the very first email. Everything went smoothly and worry free. From the wedding planners, photographer, officiant, bouquet, hairstylist and beyond.. they were all amazing and a dream to work with. They really go out of their way to make sure your day is perfect!! I can't rave enough. I am so happy!
Thank you guys so much. We will forever cherish the memories you made possible for us to have. You are all amazing!Sent on 27/09/2020

We had an amazing experience with Sharon and Malcolm! From the very beginning it felt like everything for the big day was handled and we had nothing to worry about. Even though we had unexpected weather and 2 rambunctious little boys running around, our day went incredibly smooth thanks to their personal and professional involvement. Sharon put us both at ease right from the beginning of our planning and she and Malcolm were a pleasure to work with on the big day. Thank you so much, we couldn't have asked for a better experience!Sent on 26/09/2020

We were supposed to have a very different wedding day. One with 160 people in an entirely different location, because of COVID we had to change plans. We downsized to 14 people (Including my Hubby and I) and chose the Simply Breathtaking package with Sharon and her team. My Husband and I could not have made a better decision to have Sharon as our planner/coordinator and her Husband as the photographer. Everything was organized and timely, they were wonderful at directing the wedding day and helping us pose for wedding shots. The hair and makeup team were not only talented but very friendly, and officiant they chose was delightful. It is obvious to us that the photographer has plenty of experience with wedding photoshoots. He knew where the best spots were and had all the equipment needed. The cake was delicious and the reception at the Maple Leaf was phenomenal. I can honestly say I would recommend them to any couple looking for a small wedding or elopement, you can not go wrong by choosing Elope in Banff!Sent on 20/09/2020

Elope in Lake Loukse
My review will be a bit longer than usual because l am talking about my wedding (and not about desert in a new restaurant).
As a bride planning my wedding l wanted to take care of everything myself and plan every step, controlling all the details of my big day.
Hiring a elopement professional that l found online was the opposite of it and it was scary for me to let go my desire to l control what l could not see, after all l don't live in Lake Louise.
Sharon was a blessing in my wedding preparation. Since day one she was very easy to communicate and she answered all my emails with an extreme patience (even when l was freaking out a bit because l wanted coconut in the feeling of my cake... l am that kind of person sometimes...).
One day before my wedding day l met Sharon and she was so wonderful. She had all the paperwork done, reviewed all the wedding ceremony, showed me flowers to my bouquet, spent a good time showing Banff and taking photos for me and my future husband.
At the ceremony day she arrived earlier with her husband and photographer Malcom. She brought champagne, chocolates, the bouquet, a gorgeous cake and the best energy possible.
She helped me with my dress (that was complicated to wear.... ah, she steamed it too) and she had all details ready for me. She is very perfectionist and l could not have asked for anyone better to have my back.
She adjusted my dress and my hair during the photos as many time as it was needed and she wanted be sure that l was having a perfect time without get concerned with anything.
Malcolm was a awesome photographer and make me laugh many times.
Sharon hired a commissioner that read beautiful poems and made the ceremony unforgettable. The photo session after was so beautiful and fun that l saw tourists taking photos of us too.
Sharon made a reservation for my wedding dinner in the most beautiful restaurant possible (with a romantic view).
Less than 24h later l had 30 photos edited that Malcolm sent me and OMG... they are breath taking.
If you are reading this review and are concerned about hiring Elope in Banff - don't be. Sharon will take care of you and make your dream came true.
Thanks Sharon and Malcom!
Groom's opinion: since our family couldn't be there, it was great to have Sharon and Malcom by our side in such meaningful day.Sent on 18/09/2020

Hospitality at its Finest!
Malcolm and Sharon are true professionals. They know exactly what they are doing and we never had to worry about a thing. You can tell that they love what they do and their passion for their work shows in every detail of the wedding experience you get if you book with them. We would give them 100 out of 10 if we could, because they are worth it and if you want a seamless experience then go with them!Sent on 15/09/2020
