You don’t want a wedding day like everyone else’s! You are here because you want something that is all about the two of you and feels like YOU. The beauty of elopements is that you can do anything or go anywhere, and have your day completely personalized! Today I’ve got 7 super fun, unique elopement ideas for your Alberta elopement.
Imagine saying your vows at the top of a mountain! The Rocky Mountains in Alberta are INCREDIBLE and provide the perfect backdrop for an elopement. You and your partner, surrounded by the peaks and valleys of the Rockies… it’s just…WOW!
You might have to bundle up a bit, but I think, the chilly mountain air just adds to the romance!
There’s nothing more romantic than a lake at sunrise, right? Lucky for you, Alberta is blessed with many such lakes! Lake Louise, Moraine Lake, Peyto Lake… these places are STUNNING.
You could ride up in a canoe, decorated with flowers, and exchange your vows as the sun breaks the horizon. Now, THAT’S what I’d call a beautiful start to the day 😉
Surround yourselves with the lush, green, magical forests for your elopement! Alberta’s natural parks are simply breathtaking and offer many private and secluded areas for your ceremony. Imagine saying ‘I Do’ surrounded by towering pine trees with the sound of a nearby stream trickling in the background.
How about elevating your elopement LITERALLY?! With a helicopter elopement, you can exchange your vows on a remote mountaintop or hidden glacier that would otherwise be inaccessible. Sky-high views, the thrill of the flight, and the promise of a lifetime together… this is the kind of adventure elopement dreams are made of!
And if you’re really interested in having a helicopter elopement, I have just the planning guide for you! Check it out here!
Alberta’s night skies are INCREDIBLE! For an out-of-this-world elopement, consider a night-time ceremony under the stars. Or perhaps a sunset ceremony and star-lit first dance. There are many options you could do!
Did you know that Jasper National Park is a designated dark sky preserve? Meaning that there’s minimal light pollution and you get a gorgeous starry view every night, making it the perfect location for your nighttime elopement shenanigans!
How about a Western vibe elopement, anyone? YES, PLEASE! Horseback riding on Alberta’s scenic trails can be the unique elopement idea you’ve been looking for. You could ride to a scenic overlook, say your vows, and then ride off into the sunset together. Cowboy hats are optional but highly recommended!
Winter can be absolutely MAGICAL in Alberta, making it a great choice for a snowy elopement.
Picture this: A landscape covered with snow serving as the backdrop of your elopement day, followed by getting cozy by the fireside. You can even arrive on a sled pulled by huskies.
If you love winter, this could be the dreamiest elopement for you!
