The crisp mountain air is cool and invigorating – every breath brings with it wonder, excitement, and an uplifting sense of calm all at once. The beauty of the Rockies is all around – but there aren’t many people who get to experience it from this particular vantage. Thousands of feet up in the air, it feels like nothing else exists outside the blue skies, fluffy white clouds, and sprawling wilderness of the Rocky Mountains below.
Nothing, that is, except for love, partnership, and the thrilling promise of a lifetime spent together.
The helicopter banks and descends, its destination in sight: the peak of a nearby mountaintop, quiet and pristine, overlooking a stunning emerald-green alpine lake that looks so picturesque it feels almost like a postcard, or a dream.
Some dreams, it turns out, do come true – and our team at Rocky Mountain Elopements is proud to play a part in making yours a memorable reality with our all-inclusive helicopter elopement packages.
We love big, showstopping wedding ceremonies – we really do – but there’s something to be said for the intimacy, simplicity, and resplendent romance of a small, private elopement.
Elopements take the typical considerations and complexities of a traditional wedding ceremony and flip them on their collective head. Where once you had to stress about locations, invitations, and guest lists, suddenly you’re left to focus on looking forward to the date without any other concerns or worries. Where once the focus was on tens or even hundreds of guests, now the focus is on just two people: you and your partner. And where once, the story was about the course of the big day’s events, an elopement tells the only story that matters: the one about a shared love and commitment between you and your partner.
Not a bad way to kick off a life of wedded bliss together.
No planning means no problems for you and your partner on your big day. Let us handle the details – you worry about saying “I do” and looking great in those photos.
Rocky Mountain Elopement’s heli elopement packages are all-inclusive. All that you, your partner, and your guests need to worry about is showing up – we’ll take care of the rest. Heli booking? We’ve got that. Bouquet and boutonniere? No problem. Marriage license? We’ll even hang onto it for you so that you don’t need to worry about losing it on the flight out.
In addition to taking care of these sorts of details and particulars, Rocky Mountain Elopements maintains established connections and strong working relationships with a host of local, experienced Bow Valley vendors and suppliers. This means that when your big day comes around, you can rest assured that it’ll go off without a hitch or a snag.

When it comes to experiences like heli tours and mountaintop elopements, people can often get the notion in their minds that it’ll be an in-and-out affair: touchdown, exchange vows, take some pictures, maybe toss back a flute of champagne if there’s time, and then back in the chopper for dust-off within half an hour.
