Elopement Packages in Calgary & the Rocky Mountains

Are you dreaming of an intimate and picturesque wedding surrounded by the stunning landscapes of Alberta? Elopements have become a popular choice for couples looking for a more personal, intimate, and adventurous way to say "I do." If you are considering planning an elopement in Alberta, these packages are perfect for you. From the mesmerizing beauty of the Canadian Rockies to the serene lakes and forests, Alberta offers a magical backdrop for your special day.


Side note! We want you to know that we are willing to go beyond Alberta - please reach out about the magic we can make at your dream location.



What is considered an elopement wedding?

We are glad you asked! Generally, an elopement means a wedding smaller than 15 people - all in!


Have you had some pushback from friends or family? I want to reassure you that it’s not selfish to want to spend your wedding day with the love of your life - in fact - we encourage it! Avoid the overwhelming and exhausting details of a large wedding - be truly present and enjoy the commitment you are making to one another with an elopement!

Ready to Co-Create an Adventure of a Lifetime - let’s do this together! 


From location, day-of itinerary, or simple questions about the process - I’ve got you. Whether you are ready to say yes to working together or just have a few questions - we welcome any and all inquiries as we truly believe that this builds the best relationship.


To make planning your elopement even easier, and in some cases more affordable (under $5000), I have curated a few unique elopement packages to help keep your day stress-free.

Elopement in Kananaskis

If you are unsure where to start, I'd love to help, let's work together to keep things simple and well-executed.


“We fully trusted her expert opinion and it all went off without a hitch!“
“It was like going on a hike with friends. Krystal recommended our location and of course it was an absolutely perfect choice. She also put in alot of work including doing the hike prior to our wedding to find just the right spot up there to do our ceremony where the lighting would be just perfect, and helped with planning the timeline for that morning. We fully trusted her expert opinion and it all went off without a hitch! We received our sneaks back and it made me tear up and brought me right back to our day. Absolutely gorgeous photos that we will cherish forever and be so proud to share with our family and friends.” - Ashley
