ELOPEMENT PACKAGES FOR EVEN THE MOST WILD OF ADVENTURES

SO WHAT IS AN ELOPEMENT ANYWAYS?
Everything you need to know to prep for your elopement

Elopements bring us back to what truly matters: the two of you, committing your lives to each other. It strips away all of the “stuff,” the “fluff” the performance and production. An elopement is an intentionally small, intimate, meaningful, authentic wedding day that’s a true reflection of your relationship—where the focus of the day is really about YOU TWO.

It can look like just the two of you climbing a mountain and saying your vows at the top, inviting your immediate family to hear your vows anywhere in the world, or bringing your 30 closest peoples to take the gondola up the top of Kicking Horse Mountain Resort with you to celebrate your love.

The best thing about eloping is that there are no rules and you can create an intentionally intimate wedding day that truly reflects who you are. Your elopement is the day you are married; it is still a wedding and should not be treated like an all-day photo shoot – we all know the best moments are the ones in between, the laughs, stollen kisses and windswept emotions, and thats what I am here for!

How this works

Step 1

We’ll start with a phone call or video chat (or meet for a beer, if you’re a local Albertan) to get to know each other. It’s SO important to make sure we get along before your elopement, since I might be the only person there with you! We’ll talk about what you’re envisioning for the day, and how this whole thing works, so that you can feel completely confident in your decision when you book me!

Step 2

Once we’ve made it official, I’ll send you a questionnaire to get to know you better, so that I can suggest the best locations for you! I want to help you in any way I can, from finding the perfect place for your ceremony to recommending vendors to suggesting ways you can make your day truly special. I am always just a text or email away!

Step 3

On your elopement day, I’ll be that friend you’ve stayed in touch with for years online rather than some random vendor you hired. So you can relax and trust that I’ve got you and will help make this experience simply amazing!

HOW MUCH TIME DO WE NEED FOR OUR ELOPEMENT?
Most of my couples book 6-8 hours for their elopements, but how much time you need depends on so many different things. I don’t want you to rush through your elopement, because it deserves so much more than just a few hours of posed photos. How do you want to remember the day? What do you two love doing together? How can you create an elopement that feels like you? These are just a few examples of how you can spend your elopement day, but the best part is that you get to make it your own!
