Testimonials – Elope With Us
On the day of, the Elope with Us team was phenomenal. We felt like a million bucks because everything Lisa and Michelle do is about putting the couple first. Every detail was accounted for, even the ones we never thought about. We got to be present for every moment of the day without worrying about what needed to happen next because they were always three steps ahead.
They made the (very wise) decision to have our ceremony indoors as it began to drizzle. They made sure our senior family members had hot tea all evening. They helped us take film photos when they saw our disposable cameras going unused. They sent thank-you emails to every vendor on our behalf before we even woke up the next day. They truly go above and beyond.
Every business in the service industry could learn a thing or two from Lisa and Michelle. If you want your next milestone event to land perfectly, they are the boss ladies who can make it happen!! Thank you so much!
- Elsa & Robbie
Michelle and Lisa are very professional, they took care of everything and our ceremony turned out lovely. They have a lot of experience in what they are doing and they made us feel very comfortable and stressed free. My husband and I definitely recommend them.
- Stefania & Thomas
As someone who doesn't really write reviews, my husband and I feel the need to so that all newly engaged couples during a pandemic (even after) know about Elope With Us! We cannot say enough good things about Michelle and Lisa. After changing our venue 3 months away from our wedding, we reached out to Elope With Us. From the start, they were very responsive, informative, professional, warm and friendly. As someone who gets anxious, their attentiveness and quick response to emails and phone calls, helped ease the stress of wedding planning. Fast forward to our wedding date, which we found out had to be cancelled literally 2 days before, Michelle and Lisa were able to find a beautiful intimate outdoor venue. Although it wasn't the venue we had originally planned, it turned out so amazing and we are so thankful Michelle and Lisa were able to work their magic!! The only regret we have from our wedding planning process was not hire Elope With Us from the beginning. It would have saved us so much time and money. For anyone looking for a wedding planner, we 10 /10 recommend Michelle and Lisa! PS. still crying at how beautiful our ceremony was and how they were able to pull it off in literally 1 day!!!
- Charmagne & Mark
We can’t say enough great things about Michelle and Lisa! Amazing professional service. Our elopement went according to plan and as smoothly as possible. Michelle and Lisa are very friendly, sincere, detailed oriented and have the best communication throughout the entire process. They worked above and beyond to ensure we were relaxed and calm on our big day. We did not have a moment to stress. We would definitely recommend this pair to anyone looking for help planning an elopement!!! It was the best day ever thanks to Michelle and Lisa!
I came to Elope with Us at the end of August with the intent of getting married ASAP and they were able to get my wedding done within 3 months. Michelle and Lisa made the experience enjoyable and all the guests felt that the ceremony went smoothly and were happy with the process. As someone who was unfamiliar with all the intricacies of wedding planning, they were able to answer any questions I had and offered professional advice and suggestions.
Whether you're getting married once or more than once, I would recommend Elope With Us every time.
- Sandy & Marco
Lisa and Michelle with Elope with Us were incredible. We are both not very outgoing (we don’t use Instagram) so we had no idea so many things needed to be done! Luckily, we had these amazing guides that gave us step-by-step instructions and helped us along the entire journey. The flowers, décor, venue, music, and everything else were perfect in the end!
The people we worked with were all excellent. Linda Cohen was our officiant and she was very fun and kept the mood light-hearted, and the staff at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver were pleasant as well. And of course, Denise Lin, our photographer, provided us with amazing photos mere days after the event.
But what made them go above and beyond was the fact that because of some COVID exposures, we were forced to reschedule only a few days before our planned date. Lisa and Michelle worked extra hard to accommodate the change and coordinate with all the vendors. I can’t thank them enough!
Seriously, if you have no idea what you’re doing, or you do know but you want someone to put it all together, you have to choose Elope with Us. I still don’t know what happened but I do know it was beautiful and perfect!
- Senny & Daniel
By far the best money spent on our wedding. We were having trouble finding a venue for our ceremony a little over four months to the big day. We came across Elope with Us and emailed them not thinking anything would come about ~ thank God we did ~ they were able to secure a venue and made our wedding dreams come true on the 2,22,22. A HUGE thank you to Lisa and Michelle - The wedding might have gone on without them but would not have been as seamless without these two women. They thought of things my husband and I did not, they crossed our t’s and dotted our i’s, took away the stress of all the things that needed to be done, and really made for a far more perfect day than either of us could have dreamed of. Our wedding exceeded all expectations. The passion and love for making people’s special day first class really show through their commitment and grace. Words just don’t really reflect how amazing Michelle and Lisa really are. Highly recommend including Elope with Us in the planning of your wedding! We used John Bello as our photographer ~ Absolutely Recommend ~ He is a Star!
- Stephanie & Jared
Michelle and Lisa are great! They made the planning and everything so easy and clear and just took out all the stress of having to plan and worry about the little details. I would highly recommend them!
- Jenny & Daniel
Michelle and Lisa are really responsive. They helped me a lot on my wedding day. I was surprised and impressed by their work. Definitely 5/5!!
- Twyla & Samuel
Lisa and Michelle delivered beyond our expectations, definitely would recommend them. Our flowers looked so amazing and we would hire them again!
- Karen & Darren
Lisa and Michelle are the best of the best! They are professional, extremely organized, kind, easy to work with, and best of all, they are genuine! We had such an amazing experience thanks to them and their team on our wedding day. No detail went unchecked and the events of the day ran very smoothly and right on time. They were so attentive not only to our needs but also to those of the guests in attendance. During the wedding itself, many of our guests noticed and complimented their stellar work. They truly care for all of their couples. If you are looking for assistance with your wedding, please look no further! I cannot say enough about how wonderful Lisa and Michelle are, both as people and professionals.
Lisa and Michelle are one of a kind! Their attention to detail, their warmth, and their energy are all things I will never forget about them. They gave my wife and me a wedding experience that was above and beyond what we were expecting. You guys are amazing. Thank you!
- Rebekah & Shane
Both Lisa and Michelle are experts in the industry. I contacted Lisa (owner of Shing Weddings) and due to the guest count, she provided her Wedding Management package under her other company, Elope with Us (co-owned with Michelle, owner of Eternity Moments). This package was perfect because I wanted to find all the vendors on my own to fulfill my vision, and then Lisa jumped in 2 months out.
But even from the initial interview, Lisa put in the time and effort to get to know my vision and she asked all the right questions. She and Michelle are so well-connected to so many vendors in this industry, and their passion for their work is truly amazing to witness.
I met Michelle at my rehearsal and I am so grateful for her attention to my dad, speaking Mandarin with him to make sure he understood all the details. On top of that, the wedding assistants, who we met on our wedding day, made sure my husband and I got to fully enjoy our day.
Lisa and Michelle are a powerful duo and I highly recommend Elope with Us for their services.
- Iris & Ross
We recently had a marvellous experience with Michelle and Lisa and would definitely recommend them to anyone planning a wedding! From idea generation to budgeting, decor selection, vendor management, event planning, venue setup, they were amazing and most certainly beyond all expectations! We were actually able to enjoy our wedding without any worries because they had everything under control!
Thank you so very much Michelle & Lisa, you guys absolutely made our wedding a dream!!
- Ian & Jacqueline
Using Elope with Us was one of the best decisions I have ever made when preparing for my wedding. Michelle and Lisa are one of the kindest individuals I have ever met. They are so patient and will answer any questions you may have. They have a knack for keeping the bride (and I'm sure the groom) calm. They took care of everything for me; from creating the perfect vision of my decor and bringing it to life, to organize the entire ceremony giving me barely anything to do or think about! It was great! My only wish was that we could've spent more time with them. My now-husband and I had booked them only for the ceremony, and after talking with each other, we wished we would have had them for the entire day. The only reason we did not was because we kept going back and forth between having a reception (given covid and all). They made the morning ceremony so seamless and effortless. They are so attentive and will make sure that all your needs are covered so that you are relaxed on your big day. Their communication is great, and they're quick to respond to all e-mails. They truly are the loveliest individuals, and if I could, I would book them time and time again. You guys truly are the best :)
- Jade & Aaron
Elope with Us is top-notch customer service! Lisa and Michelle were very quick to respond to emails and made us feel that they really cared about our wedding as much as we did. I was initially feeling a lot of stress during the initial stages of planning, trying to perfect the aesthetic of our venue, but they assured us through emails and Zoom meetings that everything was going smoothly. I basically just sent Lisa a bunch of Pinterest pictures of what I wanted, and like a magician, she made it all happen! On the day of, Lisa arrived at my hotel where I was getting ready, bright and early with full energy and such a pleasant positive vibe. She made me feel less nervous and more at ease and was absolutely wonderful to my daughter!
When I got to our venue, she introduced me to the rest of the EWU team, and even had a pleasant lady named Nancy escort me everywhere I went during the on-site portraits. She carried my phone for me, took pictures and videos for me on my phone, and offered me drinks and even a sweater to keep me comfortable. I pretty much had my own personal assistant on the day of my wedding. EWU had a team of about 4 or maybe even 5 people helping and keeping my husband and our guests comfortable the entire time. We had such a wonderful experience with EWU and I couldn’t recommend them more!
- Jowena & John
Elope with Us was a one-stop shop for us for managing our wedding. They had a wide selection of amazing decor and answered our every question.
My wife and I were not the only ones thrilled with their services. We were receiving compliments from our guests all night about how beautiful the decor was, and the careful attention to every detail!
Their team took our questions and our uncertainties and turned them into confidence and excitement. We told Michelle our budget and she maximized our possibilities within it. If anyone is planning their wedding we would strongly recommend contacting Michelle and her team!
They will make your dream wedding come true!
- Annie & Daniel
We decided to rent decor from Elope with Us after hearing some great reviews and we couldn't be happier with our decision. They work quickly and quietly, transforming spaces into something out of a fairy tale, without you even knowing they were there! We heard so many compliments from family and friends!
They were thoughtful, responsive, and patient with me when I had questions. An absolute dream team to work with and amazing support to have on your wedding day. We communicated mainly with Lisa who made nothing but remarkable suggestions to ensure the venue looked amazing. She listened to what I wanted and used her expertise to make my wedding day dreams come true (including one's I never knew I had). Thanks to the Elope with Us team, the look of our wedding was elevated to heights we didn't even know were possible. I still can't get over how beautiful everything was.
1000% would recommend for all your wedding needs. They will not disappoint.
- Erica & Pam
We decided to get married 12 days before our wedding date of January 1, 2021. We contacted Lisa and Michelle and before the day was done we had our first zoom meeting. Our wedding was perfect and flawless.. and most of all... completely stress free. They took care of everything and we just had to show up with our outfits. All the vendors were amazing, professional and followed all Covid guidelines. Everything we requested was perfectly executed.. they really listen to our wants and needs and our day couldn’t have been more special than it was. Thank you. Lots of Love!
- Marcy & Jon
Michelle and Lisa were professional, detailed and organized, helpful, and most importantly made our day so easy from the start of the process until we left our venue. We highly recommend “Elope with us” to anyone that is wanting an intimate wedding. Thank you both again for everything and special shout out to John- the most incredible photographer !!
- Sylvie & Derek
Lisa and Michelle brought the perfect combination of professionalism and warmth to not only to the wedding but the planning process as well. We were so impressed with the level of preparedness, organization and their immaculate eye for detail. They made the entire process so easy and even our families and guests commented how smoothly and efficiently they ran the elopement. We are so grateful to have had them arrange coordinate all the way through the perfect day for us. Thank Michelle and Lisa, from the bottom of our hearts!

Lisa and Michelle will take all the stress out of your wedding ceremony planning. They create the most elegant environment for you to truly enjoy your day in the best way possible. I highly recommend trusting these ladies with your special “I Do’s”
- Abbie & Tristan
Lisa and Michelle are exceptional wedding planners! They are attentive, personable and organized. They took care of every detail from the moment we stepped out of the car till the very end when we were packing up. We didn't have to stress about timing or what's next because Lisa and Michelle were on it! I highly recommend their services.
- Leslie & Noelle
It was a great experience with Michele and Lisa! They were very professional. Their attention to detail was what amazed me the most. The wedding day felt so special and effortless. They listened to all of our wants and needs and never made anything seem impossible. We we're extremely happy the day of. Also, our guests thought they were very professional and were really happy with their guidance and organization the day of. We felt taken care of and our day was made so easy because of them. I would reccomend them for any event - what an exceptional team!
- Crystal & Han
Just had our wedding on Aug 9th and it went without a hitch. Michelle and Lisa made it an absolute breeze and our location was everything I imagined and more. From the initial consultation to the finalizing details, Michelle and Lisa made sure everything was perfect. They were accommodating of last minute add-ons and super responsive towards any questions we had. They were on site to usher guests and give direction on what to do. I honestly would not have been able to have this wedding without them. I'm so thankful for their service and would absolutely recommend them if you're looking for any type of wedding planning.
- Phoebie & Andrew
Lisa and Michelle were amazing! Very helpful and quick to respond with any questions and concerns we had. The day of the wedding went smooth and it was everything we wished it to be. Thank you for helping us enjoy this special day ! Would recommend this service to any of my friends and family.
- Kendra & Valentin
Lisa & Michelle made it completely stress free. They were extraordinarily
professional, hosting and entertaining our guests, being as helpful as possible. While we were getting our solo shots, they coached our guests on what to expect and guided them through their roles. It felt like they were steps ahead of us, which it made it very easy to trust them. Leading up to our day, they were super adaptable to our last minute decor changes, and made recommendations that turn out beautiful on the day of. Our anxiousness subsided after every meeting and the experience only got better as we finally had the chance to meet in person. This duo kept finding opportunities to maximize moments for us, from "stealing" our phones to take bonus footage and stills for us from angles we'd never think of; even making sure to use up the leftover shots on the disposable cameras we brought.
Since it was a package we didn’t need to worry about the officiant, videographer, or photographer. They were all extremely professional and worked well with each other, it was very clear they've worked together before, making everything very fluid. They were kind and even our guests commented on how professional the entire team was.
We weren’t stressed at all during the wedding day, we were relaxed and could enjoy every moment of the short ceremony, which Lisa & Michelle both made so much more valuable than we expected it could be.
- Mishelle & Jason
Lisa, Michelle and the entire Elope with Us team were amazing with planning our intimate ceremony! We were so lucky to have met them and assist us with our special day.
They were super responsive from the first time we made contact with them and even after our wedding day to answer any questions we have for them! They took care of all our needs and ensured that all our guests and furbabies can attend safely!
We love them alot and will continue recommending them to our friends!!
- Stephanie & Lynden
Michelle, Lisa, and Nancy helped me create the most perfect wedding! They were so professional and they took care of every details (the guests, timeline, first look, vendors). The bouquet was beautiful and dreamy created by Lisa. They took bts pictures as well, super helpful if you want to see some pictures from your wedding day on the same day. Special shout-out to Nancy too, for helping me carrying my dress all day. It was a stress free wedding for us, especially for me as a bride. We were able to enjoy the moment. Our guests had a blast. Thank you, Elope with Us!
- Arale & Randy
Simply put- Lisa and Michelle are two little wedding fairy godmothers. ❤️
Everything from initial contact to the day of the ceremony was easy because these two were always 2 steps ahead. They knew what we wanted before we knew!!
They replied to my millions of questions quickly, were insanely organized and on top of all the ever changing covid restrictions.
We highly recommend Elope with Us!
- Janice & Jeff
Michelle and Lisa did such an amazing job helping my husband and I plan the wedding of our dreams in such a short amount of time. My husband and I did not stressed out one bit! Michelle and Lisa were both organized, attentive to details, and walked us through the entire thing ! Highly recommend their service !! You wont regret it !
- Roseann & Paulo
I have nothing but great things to say about Lisa and Michelle. We reached out in the midst of covid for an August 50 guest micro wedding. Throughout the entire experience, I felt super taken care of. When people ask how the wedding went, I tell them it all went perfectly and it was all because of Lisa and Michelle. Our family and friends in attendance that day only had positive feedback on Lisa and Michelle. I absolutely without a doubt would recommend their services! They truly are a dream team and super-hero status in my books.
- Elaine & Cassidy
I can not say enough good things about the women at Elope With Us. I was given a terminal cancer diagnosis last year and wanted to create a perfect moment in time for my wife to remember for our 20th anniversary. I wanted it to be a total surprise for my wife but being a man I really had no idea where to start. I was put in touch with EWU and they were amazing. They had so many great ideas, helpful hints and when I did not know where to turn they always knew how to get me the help I needed. Being from Ontario I was not familiar with the local services. EWU helped find a photographer, flowers and decoration that were beyond perfect. They helped with every facet of the event and when I had an idea or wanted something specific they found the perfect ways to make my vision come true. Everything came off without a hitch and the entire event exceeded expectations.
Michelle and Lisa made my dreams come true and created a perfect moment in time for my wife. They are friendly and amazing people and professional beyond belief. The only thing that upsets me is that I can only give them 5 stars because they deserve so much more then that. This event means more to me then words can express and Michelle and Lisa are directly responsible for this.
I can not thank them enough and I recommend Elope With Us for any plans you may have in the future.
- Julie & Brad
Lisa and Michelle brought the perfect combination of professionalism and warmth to not only to the wedding but the planning process as well.
We were so impressed with the level of preparedness, organization and their immaculate eye for detail. They made the entire process so easy and even our families and guests commented how smoothly and efficiently they ran the elopement. We are so grateful to have had them arrange coordinate all the way through the perfect day for us. Thank Michelle and Lisa, from the bottom of our hearts!
- Emily & Orville
Michelle and Lisa took literally all of the stress of planning a wedding off of our shoulders. I was so relaxed the day of, it was surprising! Everything went so smoothly and so magically, both my NEW husband and I are blown away. We highly recommend these amazing ladies services, please do yourself the favour and give them a call!
- Cara & Vince
Lisa and Michelle are very professional that you do not have to worry a thing. We were being spoiled!
- Lucia & Scott
Michelle & Lisa are awesome! Super fun to work and play with. Definitely helped making the whole process and arrangement smooth and easy so we got to enjoy every bits of the day!
- Shereen & Alan
We stumbled across Elope With Us on Instagram one day and decided to reach out to Michelle and Lisa to try and plan a wedding during the pandemic. And we are so happy that we did!! Michelle and Lisa were amazing to work with! They were always responsive and helped us to have the most beautiful intimate wedding at a breathtaking venue. They made sure everything went smoothly and made us feel very comfortable even when we were a little nervous. They are veterans at this and we would 100% recommend their services to our friends and family. Thank you Michelle and Lisa for everything!
- Maaya & Sat
I don't think there are enough words to describe the positive experience my [now] wife and I had with Lisa and Michelle from Elope With Us! From the moment we started working with the two of them they make you feel like family, and create an instant relationship that makes you want them to be apart of your lives even after you get married. Both Lisa and Michelle are quick at responding to emails and solving the problems that came up when our venue decided not to open for our May 1, 2021 wedding date. They are so professional and helpful all the time! They are experts in their field and provide the best advice from their extensive knowledge of what feels like every space in the city! While our wedding was small the work they put in was not. My wife and I can can not thank Lisa and Michelle enough for making our wedding the most it could be during Covid restrictions.
They are the best wedding planners in the Province hands down!
Thank you Lisa and Michelle for making our day the best possible wedding ever!
- Vania & Alex
Lisa and Michelle were amazing from beginning to end! They were very attentive and organized and made the photoshoot very fun and comfortable for us. They worked with the photographer really well to make every little detail perfect. I made a few changes along the way before the date and they were always very nice and accommodating. At first I thought I wouldn’t need a planner for just a photoshoot but I’m really glad I ended up choosing them to help us :)
- Maggie & Pat
Michelle & Lisa are truly amazing at what they do. Thank you for planning a wedding we will never forget! From the initial emails all the way to the day of the event, there was absolutely no stress. Thank you again and you will not go wrong by choosing Elope with Us as your wedding planners!
- Erica & Akash
Wedding planning is always so stressful. Lisa and Michelle were amazing! They made our special day stress free! They were so organized, understanding and prompt with answering any questions we had. With Covid around and restrictions always changing, it makes planning so hard. We were very lucky that the restrictions just lifted and we were able to have more than 10 people. The decor and set up was beyond our expectations and we couldn’t be happier! The ceremony went so smooth and beautifully. All our friends and family had a great time and enjoyed our small intimate wedding! Definitely recommend!
- Theresa & Wilfredo
Lisa and Michelle are definitely the industry’s number 1! They have been extremely diligent with every single bit of our wedding planning process. With COVID-19, we had to make numerous changes, thank goodness for Lisa and Michelle for keeping us sane and stress free! Lisa and Michelle has shown us professionalism, compassion, and most importantly, so much love. We are extremely blessed to have them as our wedding planner, it could not have turned out more perfectly!
- Crystal & Ben
We had the best day and that was in big part to Michelle and Lisa. They're so fun to work with and so good at what they do. The day was easy and stress free, even with maneuvering COVID protocols. They worked out the details so that we could just enjoy the day. The arch décor and flowers were beautiful and better than I could have imagined. I highly recommend Elope with Us to anyone looking to plan a wedding.
- Jessica & Colter
Lisa and Michelle saved our wedding! My husband and I were desperate to find a solution to our COVID-19 spoiled wedding plans this year, and we are so glad we found Elope with Us! Since we are not from British Columbia, we really needed all the details to be taken care of for us. Not only did Elope with Us coordinate every last detail, they went above and beyond through their communication, creativity, and kindness. Every aspect of our ceremony was perfect from the venue, photography and videography, and florals. Lisa and Michelle are so approachable and helpful, they gave recommendations for our entire trip and we totally enjoyed our wedding day because of them. If we could rate higher than 5 stars, we would!
- Zach & Brian
Michelle and Lisa are amazing! They went above and beyond on our elopement day to make sure everything runs smoothly as planned. The timing and organization was just perfect.
Before the ceremony, Michelle was very responsive to my messages and emails. The two zoom meetings they held before our elopement day helped us to get prepared and plan for every minute!
We recommend Denise Lin for photography. We do LOVE our photos even we only have the sneak peek photos yet. She is very professional and pays attention to all the details.
We also really liked our officiant Linda Cohen and would absolutely recommend her. She was super friendly, charming, and fun!
Thank you again Michelle and Lisa to make our special day even better!
- Yasaman & Bardia
Michelle and Lisa were wonderful to work with. Planning a wedding is hard enough and now planning a covid conscious wedding would have been an absolute nightmare had it not been for elope with us. Michelle and Lisa are incredibly professional, compassionate, and absolutely respectful of your decisions. They offered incredible guidance in the entire planning process and their company has a variety of vendors that they've built a partnership with to take some of the guesswork out of the way. If you so choose to work with other vendors, they'd be happy to help you with the planning process nonetheless.
We had our small covid wedding at The Hart House in Deer Lake and it was a wonderful event. Michelle and Lisa were there every step of the way to guide us through the process and help us make the day our own. If there was any tasks that needed to be done or taken care of, they'd be right there ahead of you so that you can focus on your day.
To all those couples that are scratching their heads trying to plan a covid wedding or just a wedding in general, you can't go wrong choosing elope with us.
We hope your wedding goes off without a hitch just as ours did and we hope you enjoy working with Michelle and Lisa's as much as we did.
- Mariya & Charles
Michelle and Lisa were the dream team that made our day just perfect. From the moment they first responded to my inquiry they were just amazing, so knowledgable, professional and personable. They were always available to provide their expert guidance and walked us through all the details of the day through zoom sessions to help prepare us for the day. Their passion for what they do plus their 10+ years of experience is apparent as every last detail was taken care of, taking all the stress off our shoulders and allowing us to just soak in the day.
All their vendor partners did a fantastic job—Faye Smith's makeup and hair team did a fabulous job making me look and feel beautiful, the decor and the florals were beautifully done. Karen, our commissioner, was wonderful and picked out some beautiful vows for the ceremony. The event schedule was also timed perfectly in order to make the most of our time at the venue.
Our photographer, John Bello was also wonderful. We’ve just had a sneak peek of the photos and we love how he was able to capture some beautiful moments with such a creative lens. Despite being super camera shy, he was able to make us feel comfortable and directed us in order to capture some beautiful photos of our special day.
I cannot imagine the day without these two being there, anticipating our every need and truly going above and beyond to make the day as beautiful and memorable as it could be. Thank you two soooo much for making our intimate wedding ceremony an event we’ll never forget!!! 💕
- Bry & Trevor
Michelle and Lisa were very organized and saved me and my now husband a lot of time on research and planning. They were very quick to respond to all inquiries and were very hands-on during the day of the wedding!
- Becca & Jacky
Thank you to the team at Elope with Us! You guys took care of everything and made sure that everyone was comfortable! We were blown away with all the details and time spent on getting our venue ready. It was beautiful and our guests couldn't have agreed more. Michelle and Lisa are both amazing to work with and they're so creative with the wedding planning. They got us exactly what we envisioned. Definitely 5 gold stars for Elope with Us and 0 stars for covid! Thanks again!
- Amy & Jeff
This is THE DREAM TEAM to have!!! our wedding was perfect because of Lisa and Michelle. They were truly amazing and professional at what they do. Their passion for weddings, shines through their hard work to ensure you can enjoy your day, stress free and magical! They are super detail oriented, organized, and just a fun loving duo. Their knowledge and expertise in traditional chinese ceremony is just an icing on the cake. Top notch service all around.
We cannot imagine our day without this dream team. I highly recommended booking Elope with Us for anyone who is getting married.
- Nancy & Manson
Michelle and Lisa are honestly amazing! From the get-go we were so impressed by how concise and responsive they were too all our questions and during the planning process. It definitely feels meant to be to have contacted them and we think it's the best decision we ever made. Especially with the restrictions changes, they couldn't have made it more easy and stress-free. Our wedding was magical and above and beyond our expectations. Michelle and Lisa are truely the kindest souls and you can tell they're very passionate at what they do. Even with the little interactions our families had these ladies, they were very impressed by how wonderful these ladies were. We would recommend them in a heart beat to any couple that is preparing for a wedding -- big or small. They are the truely dream team.
We really can't thank you enough!
- Linda & De Gen
My fiancé and I were originally looking at taking engagement photos at Hycroft with Denise Lin. We then decided to elope and reached out to Elope With Us for their assistance. Michelle and Lisa helped us pull off our wedding in 4 days! With our super tight timeline, Michelle and Lisa’s insights and recommendations helped us use our time effectively, working with vetted and reliable vendors. The stress of wedding planning and day-of coordination were taken away with their help. It felt wonderful to show up at the venue and be taken care of. From ensuring I was warm between photo poses outdoors, fluffing my dress train, closing doors so that the background was perfect, and executing our wedding idea as we discussed plus more! What my husband and I loved most about our wedding was being able to be in the moment and feeling like it was only just us two sharing our vows of now and forever. Michelle and Lisa took care of our before, during and after wedding details. We couldn’t have pulled this stress-free day off without them. Thank you Lisa & Michelle!!!
- Amy & Jack
I can’t thank Michelle & Lisa more for making our big day more special than we could have ever imagined. Every single detail from the bouquet/flowers, to the decor (the arch 🙌🏼), to our personalized printed vows was looked after. It couldn’t have been more efficiently organized. They kept us & our guests safe with all the current Covid protocols, yet we still managed to have the best day of our lives with a mere 5 guests. Thank you ladies for all your hard work in what felt like the blink of an eye. ♥️
- Amber & Drew
I contacted Lisa & Michelle on very short notice to plan an intimate elopement ceremony for 6 guests.
Lisa & Michelle were fantastic to work with and very accommodating of my requests. They simplified the planning process, responded quickly to emails, and did a great job the day of by ensuring everything ran smoothly.
I was very pleased about how the ceremony turned out, and our guests had nothing but favorable things to say about the ceremony and the duo.
- Joan & Alex
Lisa and Michelle at Elope With Us Vancouver were everything we dreamed of and more! They were recommended to us by a friend and we were blown away from the beginning of our working relationship. Lisa and Michelle were responsive, empathetic (especially with all the uncertainty during covid), and knew exactly what they were doing. We ended up with the most amazing day at the Fairmont Pacific Rim. Lisa and Michelle even stayed past their time to help our photographer and some extra things that we didn't even know about until weeks after the wedding. We can't recommend them enough - they took away all the parts of any stressful wedding and only left us with a gorgeous day.
- Luan & Hugo
After a lot of lengthy discussions, my husband and I made the final decision to move our wedding date forward and elope on our 9th year anniversary. We had originally been planning a June 2021 wedding; however, with the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the growing amount of cases in BC, the future became more and more unpredictable for the both of us. Rather than wait to see what the future had in store for us (and potentially place deposits we may lose), we decided to elope with our immediate family in secret. We literally had less than 2 months to quickly get everything we needed to pull this off and we honestly could not have done it without Michelle and Lisa at Elope With Us! It started off as a suggested Instagram page based on who we were currently following. Elope With Us stood out to us as they were offering the perfect elopement package with most of the venues we had been considering. There wasn’t much time for us to consider all options so we both took this as a sign and reached out to Michelle and Lisa regarding our elopement. Quite honestly, it was the best decision we made!
It never takes long at all for either Michelle or Lisa to contact us back. They are so detailed, so knowledgeable, and so organized. They answered all of our questions fully and left no room for any feelings of uncertainty. Although they offered a curated package with photography, videography, hair and makeup, arrangements and decor, florals, and even cake options to choose from, they were so accommodating with us as we already had a team in mind for a majority of the services they offered. They communicated so well with us throughout the entire planning process and were completely transparent with us in all of it.
On our big day, Michelle and Lisa came and left with us with a lasting impression of them. They were so detailed, so efficient, so organized, and so quick that by the time either of us had time to process what was happening, our rooms were already staged and ready for our photographer and videographer who hadn’t yet arrived! It all happened in a blink of an eye. We were honestly in so much awe of Michelle and Lisa. With them there, there was not a single moment where my husband and I worried about anything except for ourselves. The thought of our families knowing where to go, where to sit, what to do, etc. never crossed our mind once because we knew that Michelle and Lisa had it all handled. Our ceremonies were perfect. Even our family photos were coordinated so well that we had extra time for additional groupings for photos. We were never behind or stressed about time and that wouldn’t have been possible without Michelle and Lisa. Their attention to detail and their efficiency are completely unmatched. They both genuinely care so much about their couples and that really translates in everything that they did for us.
Thank you, Michelle and Lisa, for everything that you both did for Deion and I. We are honestly so blessed to have crossed paths with you both when we did and we couldn’t be happier with the choice we made in hiring you both!

We have worked many times with Elope With Us, and each time it has been a complete pleasure! They are extremely professional, reliable and kind. They will definitely be with you in each step of the way and go above and beyond for you.
A wedding can be stressful to plan, but it doesn't have to be if you have the right team with you, and with Michelle and Lisa you will definitely have that!
We can't wait for many more years of working together with these amazing team!

Thank you to Lisa, Michelle and their team for making my wedding planning and day of 100% stress-free. They were always available for questions leading up to the wedding and always went beyond our expectations to ensure my husband and I had the wedding we envisioned. They always had an answer for every request we had and followed through to make sure it happened. We appreciate Lisa, Michelle and everyone who helped out on our wedding day. Even if you weren’t planning on hiring a planner, you don’t know what you’re missing until you’ve worked with the team!

Elope with Us provides the first class service with a reasonable price.
I would recommend both Lisa and Michelle to anyone who is looking for wedding planner(s).
Their hard work definitely made our big day even more special.
- Lucy & Brian
The Elope with Us team is amazing! Michelle and Lisa were quick for responses via e-mail, thorough with all details and very friendly during the whole process! They care for you as though you were their best friend getting married, making sure everything was correct with timelines and making sure you and your loved one was looking best as possible by readjusting our hair /attire if needed (much appreciated when there's no mirror in sight). Super accommodating and I would recommend them to all my friends if they plan to have an intimate wedding.

I reached out to Elope With Us while hoping to organize a micro-wedding within 1 month. With the many stressors of planning a wedding especially during a pandemic, Lisa and her colleague Michelle did an awesome job at making my wedding happen on such short notice especially with the ever changing rules due to Covid19 protocols. I was amazed at how the wedding turned out and they were able to plan a dream wedding for myself and my husband. Their attention to detail and hard work was very apparent and they ensured that I was comfortable throughout the whole day so I did not have to worry about anything at all. My husband and I are so grateful for the amazing job that they did to create the wedding that we were envisioning. Hands down, we do not regret hiring Elope With Us to plan our wedding.

We contacted Elope with Us after our original destination wedding plans were cancelled due to Covid-19. Michelle and Lisa did an excellent job planning our wedding in just under 3 months. Throughout the whole wedding planning process, Michelle and Lisa were extremely timely in responding to emails, organized, detailed, knowledgeable and professional. We were extremely impressed by their suggested vendors, especially their photographer, decor and florals.
Michelle and Lisa did an amazing job the day of making sure everything ran smoothly and efficiently. They even set up a virtual broadcast of the wedding ceremony via Zoom. We couldn't be happier with how everything turned out!
We would highly recommend Michelle and Lisa for anyone who wants to have an enjoyable, stress free elopement wedding.
Thank you again Michelle and Lisa for making our day so special!!
- Katie & Chris
It was such a wonderful and stress-free experience working with Lisa and Michelle!
Thanks to them our wedding day went so smoothly. From the very first contact, they were very responsive, organized and always willing to accommodate our requests. They even arranged for our families to join in our ceremony virtually. Not only Lisa and Michelle but all the vendors they had chosen for us were also great.
We highly recommend Elope With Us to anyone looking for wedding planners!

We have had the pleasure of working with Michelle and Lisa multiple times this summer and are looking forward to our upcoming elopements and micro weddings with them! Elope with Us is fantastic! They take such good care of all of their couples, are extremely organized, and always go above and beyond. As a photographer/videographer vendor in the industry, it is always a dream to have planners that are so detailed and organized. Whenever we have a question, they are always very quick to respond and accommodate requests we sometimes have as the couples' photographer/videographer. We highly recommend Lisa and Michelle! They will make the planning of your elopement and micro wedding an absolute breeze so you can enjoy your wedding stress free! We are so excited to work with them again soon!!

Michelle and Lisa are amazing! Our wedding turned out perfectly. My husband and I decided to have a small wedding and contacted Elope with Us. Michelle and Lisa were so quick and responsive and were able to plan everything within 5 weeks with the venue we wanted. Michelle and Lisa are so kind and warm to work with along with being so professional. They made the whole planning process completely stress-free and on the day of our wedding they ensured that the whole ceremony went smoothly. Their 10 years of experience in the wedding industry really shined through that day. They are honestly the best! I would highly recommend Elope with Us to anyone who is planning a wedding!
Michelle and Lisa, thank you again for making our day so amazing and unforgettable!
- Lisa & Jay
Chosing Elope with Us was the best thing me and my husband ever did!
Because of Michelle & Lisa we had a well put together beautiful fairytale wedding. I myself am not able to plan cohesively, just not my skill set 😉 they worked with me every step of the way and helped us achieve a gorgeous day.
Our photographer Denise was a part of the package and it absolute gem when it came to getting truly beautiful shots.
We had just myself my husband and my maid of honor for a very intimate affair and a truly amazing location.
The Hyatt manor is like out of a Disney movie, the solarium has been featured is many movies and tv shows. It's such a unique and decadent in color room with antique feel that photographs in any light.
I wish I could do it all over again 😂💕
- Kim & Cole
You're probably reading this review because you're uncertain if "Elope with Us" is a good idea or not. Well, we're going to say it was definitely one our best decisions ever made. I also would recommend Denise to be your photographer!
We were engaged in early April and unsure with the pandemic when or how we would plan our wedding. We thought about waiting to see how things panned out in the next couple of years, but then realized that there was no point in waiting. We decided to elope and with the help of "Elope with Us", we were able to celebrate our love with our most closest family and friends by our side.
Michelle's number was easily found on their website; we called her immediately after our decision to elope was made. She was so warm, so inviting and so helpful! Her partner Lisa also helped us with every detail and coordinated our day perfectly. They made us feel so special and we are so grateful to have them be apart of our day.
Denise was our photographer. The chemistry she had with us was amazing. We felt very comfortable even though we are usually camera shy. She was able to direct us and capture so many beautiful moments for us.
What we love best about their package is that we did not have to stress at all! Everything was planned very well, and the communication was flawless.
It was magical day for us and more than we had expected.
Thank you so much Michelle & Lisa and to all your partners & vendors

Wonderful team, beautiful elopement
I don’t think I could have chosen a better company. Michelle and Lisa are a wonderful team. From my initial inquiry until the day of our elopement, every single detail was meticulously taken care of by Michelle and Lisa. Everything was handled with promptness and professionalism, and both ladies are so attentive and welcoming. The day of our elopement went by so smoothly and stress free because of their hard work. I was at ease because we had their support. For their elopement packages (the cenues they offer are amazing!) and top notch service, I would highly recommend Elope With Us! Thank you both again for making our day such an unforgettable event. We couldn’t have done this without you!

My wife and I would like to share our positive experience with Elope with Us. My wife and I decided on a very last minute wedding ceremony. We had our venue, photography, and make up artist booked. However, we were missing decor and floral, and was looking for someone to put everything together. Parq Hotel referred us to Elope with Us with 2 weeks left to go for our wedding. We explained to Elope with Us what we need and what our budget is, and they were able to put together something that was exactly what we wanted, simple and proper at the same time.
They responded very quickly to any messages or email that we have sent them, and despite of the fact that we had quite a few things that were very last minute, we never felt that they were annoyed with us. Rather, they have been very supportive, and even helped us with an extra request that wasn't part of the wedding.
Whether you're looking for something last minute, or a from the start planning for your wedding, I would definitely recommend Elope with Us.

Amazing team, best of the best
My husband and I contacted elope with us once the uncertainty of covid changed our plans and in the end turned into our dream wedding! Lisa and Michelle made everything super easy to plan a wedding in 2 months and helped with everything day-of run so smoothly. I'm still in awe with how the wedding turned out and how amazing it was. I wish I could live it all over again. Saying thank you doesn't feel like enough!
- Antoinette & Charldan

Due to an unexpected family situation, my husband and I had to plan an elopement in under 2 weeks. We honestly could not have been able to pull it off if it weren't for Michelle and Lisa. From choosing and setting up the venue, finding us a wedding officiant, amazing photographer and videographer, as well as the beautiful florals - they literally did it all! I love how Michelle is always on top of things! She really makes sure to communicate everything with you! Sending little reminders and keeping in close contact with you to make sure that everything is done exactly how you want it to be! Even after the elopement, she still connects with you to make sure you are fully satisfied with the photos and video, and even liaises with the photographer and videographer should you need any changes! Our elopement turned out to be everything and more. It was perfect and you honestly could not tell that it was planned in such a short amount of time! Thank you to Michelle and Lisa for being so accommodating and flexible to our needs!

It was so lovely to work with Michelle and Lisa and so happy with our decision to hire Elope With Us Vancouver. Both of the planners made the planning process seem so seamless, and Michelle and Lisa did a fabulous job in guiding my husband and I through the whole process. There was nothing too complicated about the wedding packages and both planners were willing to work with our vision. They ensured the province's public health guidelines were being followed which put my husband and I at ease. On the day of the ceremony, Michelle and Lisa were so quick to build a positive rapport with us and we both felt so comfortable in their company. Michelle was even kind enough to offer me her pair of flats while we were taking pictures outside the venue! We would highly recommend hiring Michelle and Lisa for your special day.

My husband and I are busy professionals and wanted a beautiful lux ceremony without planning, spending and stressing. Elope with us checked off all our boxes for a dream elopement and we are so incredibly thankful. Lisa and Michelle are super experienced and made me feel like I could stop worrying very early on in the process. I consider myself a perfectionist and a hard-to-please client, but from the first planning email, I knew I could let go and relax.
Elope with us planned everything I wanted and thought of everything that I could potentially want with their add-on options. They anticipated the things I didn't consider and gave lots of great ideas along the way. To top off the talent and experience these ladies offer, they have a team of extremely talented, professional and good-energy vendors to put the cherry on top. The florist, venue, photographer, cinematographer and make-up and hair stylist were all top of the line. They seemed to have cherry picked the best of the best to team up with and offer one heck of an elopement package.
I would give 10 stars to these guys, if I could. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND these guys to anyone that is considering eloping. They also offer up to 20 guests which is pretty sweet if anyone is considering a private ceremony with immediate family.
Thank you guys for making our wedding dream come true! we sure feel lucky to have scored your services.

In short, they are absolutely the best. 5/5 (If we could, we would rate them as 100/5!!!!)
My now-husband and I were originally supposed to have a wedding with 70 guests but we had to cancel the plan because of the COVID-19. We thought about postponing the plan but no one was (and is) able to predict the length of this world pandemic. We didn’t know what to do... Then, we found “Elope with Us”.
From the beginning, Lisa and Michelle have been very friendly, supportive, and wonderful. They continued to work so hard until the very end of our day so that my husband and I could just enjoy the moment. They really made everything easy for us, and we couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out. We are so grateful.
They’re very knowledgeable, experienced and organized. They get things done, in the most efficient and beautiful way!!
Lisa and Michelle are AMAZING. If we ever decide to have a vow renewal, we would definitely ask them to be our planners again!!
- Ichie & Darren
Elopements should be simple, stress free and cost effective. Elope With Us provided all of that on top of their professionalism and high-end equipment.
- Wai Yin & Tommy
Elope with us has been a life saver in these trying times. I personally suck at planning of any kind and they have gone above and beyond to make sure it's all set and we just have to show up. we picked the Hyatt manor and I'm so excited to say I do to my partner in crime in such a beautiful place. if I had anything to say it's thank you.
- Kim & Cole
The best of the best!
Lisa and Michelle are hands down the best in the business. I first reached out to Elope with Us after seeing Lisa in action planning a close friend's wedding. She was stellar and I knew that she was someone we could easily work with. My now husband and I decided we wanted to elope in the midst of a pandemic, and from the very beginning, Lisa and Michelle were extremely responsive, supportive, and knowledgeable. They provided suggestions on various vendors, helped decide on decor details, and created the most detailed timeline. From start to finish, the whole process took 2 months and it was an absolute breeze. Lisa and Michelle answered emails at all hours of the day, and were so organized and on top of every little detail. I am detail oriented and quite particular about how things are done, so to have planners that were so on top of everything gave me peace of mind for the big day. I would recommend their services to anyone looking to plan an elopement, micro-wedding, or regular wedding!
