We are Kristin and Lindsay. Two mountain dwelling, adventure seekers who naturally connected people and created inspiring experiences before we knew it was called wedding planning! 

We have both lived in Canmore and Banff for the last five years and share a love for supporting local. We take our jobs seriously, but not ourselves. We have so much fun brainstorming beautiful things together (normally at our favourite local cafes) and can't wait for you to join in on the good times. 

Planning weddings & chasing sunsets.

Our Approach

We're not like the wedding planners you've seen on TV. You know, the ones with the headsets, a million checklists and an uncanny ability to speed walk in stilettos without tripping. 

Aside from the checklists, which really are necessary, we do things differently and connect best with couples who want to approach their wedding unconventionally too. We value experience over production and aim to craft moments of meaningful human connection because that's what a wedding is all about. We promise professionalism, honesty and transparency in our communication, pricing and service. 

To be completely honest, we're not like all the rest.

Sipper of coffee and craft beer. Wearer of toques and Blundstones. Pup mom. Avid supporter of local food & local business. Part-time backcountry explorer.

My partner and I reside in Banff, with our pup Casey, and spend most of our spare time camping, hiking, and skiing. Hailing from Ontario, and always up for an adventure, I now know I was destined for the Rocky Mountains. 

My passion has always been people-focused. With over 10 years in the hospitality & events industry, I was very much attracted to engaging with people, understanding their needs and looking to go above and beyond to fulfill them.

Building and maintaining relationships is what drives my purpose as the lead Banff Wedding Planner of Rocky Mountain Elopements.

I can’t wait to connect with you, and help you plan your dream one-of-a-kind wedding or intimate elopement in Banff, Canmore or surrounding areas.

I believe the best things I’ve achieved have come from living outside my comfort zone. You can barely see my eyes when I laugh. I own more toques than I should. I don’t do fancy things, can’t quote movies, and likely won’t know your pop culture reference. I drink too much coffee, go to bed too early, and say ‘yes’ too often.

As a recently retired Optometrist, that now proudly leads a dream team at Rocky Mountain Wedding & Events, my journey and purpose in life is solely focused on my passion for the local wedding industry.

I have lived, worked, and explored the area for 6 years now, and as a result have a wealth of knowledge on unique locations and experiences for weddings in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. All I want to do is share them with YOU!

If you want to explore some of my adventures, you can find me documenting love stories with our sister company Rocky Mountain Photo Co. Between celebrating with couples - I am likely visiting my family back in Saskatchewan, golfing, camping, and enjoying this beautiful place I now call home.

I can’t wait to share my energy with you.
