Testimonials – Elope With Us
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.

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!!! 💕

- 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 are very professional that you do not have to worry a thing. We were being spoiled!
- Lucia & Scott
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!
- Anna & Deion
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!
- Faye Smith Agency
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!
- Doris & Peter
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.
- Tina & Ansel
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.
- Danielle & Jeff
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!
- Ha & Reza
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!!
- Lumina Weddings & Events Inc.
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
- Kim & Francis
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!
- Jae & Eric
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.
- Sharon & Raymond
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
We loved everything about our day! You ladies made everything so easy and stress free! From the the initial professional communication to the last minute details!

Me and Alex were so impressed by every little detail and how much you would go out of your way for our happiness! ❤️🌹Couldn’t be happier with choosing you guys and thank you so much for everything❤️. Forever grateful🙏🙏🙏🙏
- Sawsan & Alex
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!
- N & J
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.
- Neel & Manveer
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.
- Maryam & Mitch
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!
