Planning a mountain wedding can be fun – but it sure is a lot of work. Even when you bring on a team of world-class wedding planners, there’s still a lot to do before you can say, “I do.” From cake tastings to venue viewings to ever-expanding guest lists, it can sometimes feel that your wedding day is less about you and more about everybody else.
We say: take your big day back.
Ditch the seating charts and toonie bars. Leave the extravagant floral arrangements behind. Escape to the romantic wonder of the Canadian Rockies instead and make your wedding all about you again with Rocky Mountain Elopements.
Owned by Banff elopement photographer Lindsay Copeland and managed by Banff elopement planner Kristin Nicol, Rocky Mountain Elopements puts a uniquely modern spin on the tried-and-true tradition of making a break for it to tie the knot. With this dynamic duo at your side, you can rest assured that whatever your elopement plans might be, you’ll be able to get hitched without a hitch, guaranteed.
Suddenly, when you don’t need to accommodate 100+ guests and a multi-course meal, the world becomes your nuptial oyster. Explore the timeless Fairmont Banff Springs or the majesty of Mt. Norquay with our Banff Elopement Packages; discover the modern traditional beauty of the Malcolm Hotel with our Canmore Elopement Packages; or take a tour off the beaten path and experience those world-famous blue-turquoise waters with our Lake Louise Elopement Packages.
That might seem like a fairly exhaustive list of venues, but really, it’s just the tip of the iceberg (or the peak of the mountaintop, if you’d prefer). We also plan adventurous elopements in Kananaskis, Emerald Lake, Jasper, and even Golden, BC – and beyond that, all of our elopement options are entirely customizable. From Lake Minnewanka to the Icefields Parkway, we’re more than happy to plan, create, and collaborate together to craft a day that is entirely, uniquely you.
Your love story is anything but typical – shouldn’t your big day follow suit?
One of the most unique facets of an elopement-style wedding is that suddenly, the day isn’t about speeches or toasts or dancing the YMCA – it’s about you, your partner, and the story of your relationship. With this in mind, Rocky Mountain Elopements offers singular, experience-driven elopement packages that capitalize on the natural wonder of the Rockies and the one-of-a-kind adventures they have to offer.
From hiking and camping to wining-and-dining and even being catered to by private world-renowned chefs, our experiential elopement packages put an emphasis on creating a day that’s as enjoyable as it is memorable.
Don’t see an experience that resonates with your relationship? No problem. We’re happy to chat about building a custom elopement experience that tells the story of you and your partner living happily ever after – whatever that might look like.
Looking to experience a truly authentic Rocky Mountain elopement? There’s no substitute for exchanging vows on the peak of a literal mountaintop – and we’ll be happy to take you there.
One of our specialties here at Rocky Mountain Elopements is our heli elopement packages – and trust us when we say that it makes for a truly elevated elopement experience. All-inclusive and entirely exhilarating, you and your guests will be whisked away to celebrate your love in one of the most romantic, picturesque settings in the world: high above the Canadian Rocky Mountains on the summit of love.
Once we’re up there, there’s no rush to come back down. You’ll have plenty of time to say your vows, adventure for photos, and enjoy the exclusive experience with your friends and family. Think of it like a cocktail hour at 9000 feet above sea level. Pretty cool, right?
Leave walking down the aisle to everyone else – the mountaintops are calling your name.
Marriage is all about partnership and teamwork – and wouldn’t you know it, but elopements are, too.
When you plan your escape with Rocky Mountain Elopements, you’ll also enjoy special preferential offerings from the services and solutions that make up a local team of experience wedding creatives – including Rocky Mountain Photo Co.
What does this mean for you? Well, a seamless team that is confident in crafting the day you desire. When you hire Rocky Mountain Photo Co. to capture the events of the day for you, you’re not just getting any photographer – you’ll be enjoying the company of Lindsay Copeland, who also happens to be owner and assistant planner with Rocky Mountain Elopements. More knowledge, more experience, and an inside scoop to the best local spots to create beautiful images.
If you’ve explored the Rocky Mountain Elopements website (or any site within the greater Rocky Mountain Wedding Collective), you might have noticed something about particular about how we speak to the work we do – that is, we never make reference to the notion of husbands or wives.
That’s because we’re guided by the steadfast belief that love is love is love – no matter the gender identity of those partners making a lifelong commitment to one another.
It’s with this conviction, this guiding belief that we approach every single event and operate every single element of Rocky Mountain Elopements.
We’re not just proud, but thrilled to work with any two people who are looking to commit their lives to one another in love – regardless of race, gender, creed, or orientation.
We believe in equality. We believe in inclusivity. And most of all, we believe in love.
Your wedding day should be just that: yours.
Put the centerpieces away. Stop stressing about save-the-dates and wedding favours. Spend less time worrying about planning your big day and more time looking forward to it. Discover the joy that comes with focusing on what really matters when you decide to tie the knot: you, your partner, and the story of your relationship. Plan to adventure amongst the stunning beauty of the Canadian Rockies today with Rocky Mountain Elopements.
