Elopement Packages in Calgary & the Rocky Mountains

2024 is just around the corner and we are so excited to have you here! I get it, weddings are expensive and it's hard to figure out how to spend your money in the most efficient ways. This is exactly why these elopement packages in Calgary and the Rocky Mountains is for you if you have been on the fence about having a large wedding or scaling back and eloping. (Which may I add - eloping no longer means up & running away, telling no one and getting hitched, although it can, it's become so much more.) In my (slightly biased) opinion, nothing is more romantic than choosing to elope. It’s not selfish to want to spend your wedding day with the love of your life - in fact, we encourage it! When you have a large wedding, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and caught up in the details of it all, that you miss the chance to be truly present and enjoy the commitment you are making to one another.

To make eloping even easier, and in some cases more affordable (under $5000), we have created elopement packages in top locations in Calgary and the Rocky Mountains.

Before I get too far into it, in case we haven’t met yet, I’m Krystal - the boss lady at Fly Free. Our team is made up of 3 photographers and a videographer and we offer awesome photo and video packages. You can learn more about the entire Fly Free team here. Now, on to the incredible (and affordable!) elopement packages - and micro weddings packages - we have created for you to take advantage of in 2024!
