Elope in Canmore

Elope in Canmore

Canmore is a fabulous gateway to the Rocky Mountains. We have two gorgeous spots we love to use for our Canmore Elopement Packages with a few different options for guest numbers. The beauty of Canmore is that accommodations are generally more affordable than Banff, plus you can rent AirBnBs (which you can’t do in Banff). 

We use two spots in Canmore for our elopements. Quarry Lake is an amazing location that offers two options for you. We have the standard elopement package for $2100 that you can have up to 20 people at. We do these elopements from October-June with this package. If you wanted to have up to 50 people OR have an elopement July-September, then there is the $2600 package in which we rent the private ceremony spot for you and your guests for three hours.

If you wanted to have up to 30 people and not pay extra fees, we have another area in Van Horne that we love with a  great view of the Three Sisters Mountains, plus water, trees, and wide-open space. We do elopements here year-round.

Our Canmore elopements are all standing ceremonies only. The exception is if you book the $2600 Quarry Lake package and then you are welcome to rent chairs, an arch, decor, etc.

The bonus of Canmore is that it’s a little less busy than Banff, but still with the beautiful mountain vibe.

Your package includes your Alberta marriage commissioner, your Shotgun Wedding Photographer, and the licenses and permits to have an elopement in Canmore. Approximately 15 minutes of your package will be your ceremony with the remaining 45 minutes for photos of the two of your (and your guests if you wish).

QUARRY LAKE LARGER WEDDING

$2600

For up to 50 people

Love Quarry Lake but want more people than a standard elopement or want to be married here July-September? This is the package for you.

The beauty of this package is that you are also able to have a full ceremony set up if you wish. You can rent chairs and decor (as pictured) and have a seated ceremony, unlike the other Canmore locations. The cost of renting chairs, an arch, or any decor is extra. You can also have a standing and simple ceremony as well, without any rentals.

If you are looking at this package for June-September, you will need to hire transportation for your guests if you are looking at a larger crowd like 20-50 people. The parking lot fills up quickly during these months and the Town of Canmore requires us to let them know the plan for transport before the wedding. There will most likely not be parking spaces easily found in July and August.
