    It was an absolutely amazing experience. For a bride with very little preferences and not knowing what I really wanted, Sharon has a knack for people and giving them exactly what they want, when they don't even know it. From the planning process, Sharon was responsive and kept us in the loop for everything and was so accommodating in letting us plan via email. Even with our airline cancellations she was flexible, changed the time and managed to keep us calm. She took us to the absolute perfect locations for our pictures and ceremony. Her recommendations on what to do, where to eat, what to try made our whole stay not just the wedding day wonderful. The day of both Malcolm and Sharon were just amazing, they are the perfect team! They were prompt, made us (incredibly shy and awkward people) feel comfortable and it shows in the pictures. She took care of everything from bringing a wrap to hairspray to listerine to champagne glasses. We didn't manage to get the bouquet in time but she managed to get me one. Did I mention we were very ill prepared and there couldn't have been anyone else who took care of us the way she did. Malcolm on the other hand left no stone unturned in getting the perfect picture, literally from getting his feet wet or getting into the grass or climbing on top of branches to get us the perfect angle. Did I mention the pictured were absolutely amazing?! We normally don't look that good. It was a great experience and we hope to come back to Banff and stay in touch with Sharon and Malcolm! Trust me there is no better couple to get you married, if this was something you did over and over again, I would Elope in Banff every time!!!

    Dear Anisha & Harsha,
    I am so happy that despite the weather in Texas and cancelled flights that you were able to get here because it was a pleasure to meet you both and be part of your special day!
    I am sorry that your mom's hand crafted bouquet was not delivered (again due to the weather) but when it does arrive it will remind you of your romantic elopement in the Canadian Rockies and i am glad i was able to help out by lending you mine.
    We are so happy you had an amazing experience, and we look forward to seeing you again some time, perhaps for an anniversary!
    Take Care, Best Wishes to you both.
    Sharon & Malcolm

    Having Sharon as our wedding planner was amazing, she was the driving force behind having our small wedding in the mountains. My fiancé and I were very intimidated by the wedding planning process and couldn’t imagine organizing venues, photography, our wedding cake, bouquets, centrepieces, hair, makeup, contacting a commissioner for the ceremony and registering for our marriage license by ourselves. We needed a professional and Sharon met every expectation imaginable. From every frantic email to nervous phone call, Sharon was extremely patient and understanding with us. She fully addressed our concerns, gave clear explainations and knew Banff very well. She found us an amazing location for our ceremony that fit our small wedding and introduced us to Rob our wonderful wedding commissioner. Sharon’s husband, Malcolm, was our photographer for the day and captured every intimate and sentimental moment. Both Sharon and Malcolm kept us laughing and kept our worries at bay that our wedding would be anything less than perfect. We would highly recommend them for anyone who wanted to celebrate in the mountains.

    It would have been impossible for us to have organised our dream Canadian Rockies wedding from our home in Australia. Malcolm and Sharon made our dream come true. Nothing seemed to stress them, and everything went perfectly.

    We could not have picked a better wedding planner and photographer. Sharon and Malcolm are amazing at what they do! They went above and beyond our expectations, making our day extra special. Our first photos have been exceptional. I highly recommend them to anyone!

    Sharon and Malcolm made sure our special day didn't just go smoothly, but flawlessly and was a huge amount of fun to boot. Sharon anticipated issues with crowd/queues and adjusted the ceremony time accordingly which worked wonderfully.
    Even before the wedding day Sharon was making our experience special, with a tour of town and surrounds, recommendations on what to see while we were around and some great stories with local colour.

    My fiance and I knew from the beginning that we wanted a wedding as magical and romantic as our own love story...Sharon and Michael of Elope In Banff gave us more than we had even imagined. Sharon's promptness to answer my countless questions via e-mail was impressive, especially since we were almost 2,000 miles away from one another. I was especially in awe by her attention to detail on the wedding day - from making sure my dress was just right for every picture, to having Kleenex and band-aids on hand when I needed them, to making sure we had a wedding cake topper (even though we had forgotten to bring one!). My fiance and I were thrilled to get our sneak-peaks less than 24 hours post-ceremony and were in awe of the beauty Malcolm captured. Malcolm and Sharon made a perfect team, complimenting each other and ensuring every single picture would be worth a thousand words. Malcolm made us feel comfortable and encouraged us to choose how we wanted some of our pictures (Sharon and him surprised us by having us recreate the picture that made us fall in love with Lake Louise - again, another perfect touch!).

    Our 3 nights at their Banff Log Cabin B&B was more grand than we had expected - Sharon and Malcolm attended to our every need and put thought into the smallest aspects of our stay (our favorite was the personalized card they left for us next to our champagne and cake when we returned from our wedding dinner...a close 2nd was the scrumptious home-baked muffins!). Their knowledge of Banff was extremely helpful - they easily shared places to go and how to get there. We greatly enjoyed using their 2 bicycles to ride around Bow River and Vermillion Lake - everywhere we looked, we were in awe of the beauty and wildlife.

    Sharon and Malcolm, thank you again for sharing our day with us and making our fairytale come true!

    Best,
    Bentz and Megan

    Hi Megan & Bentz,
    It was our pleasure to plan and be part of your special day. We are so happy you chose Lake Louise for your wedding ceremony and Moraine Lake for more portraits. You both look stunning!
    Thanks for staying at the Banff Log Cabin and so happy to know you enjoyed that too. Keep in touch.
