We worked hard to create beautiful elopement experience for couples choosing to elope in New Brunswick. Here are just a few love notes from some of the couples we’ve been fortunate to work with.

Leah & Chad

I never thought we would end up choosing to elope, but with the past couple of years being hectic with trying to plan a wedding through the pandemic, I luckily came across NB elopements. After a meeting via a zoom call, we quickly knew that Shannon-May and Deanna were who we wanted to plan our elopement with. From the many emails, the questionnaires and everything in-between Shannon-May and Deanna were committed to getting to know us and planning the most beautiful day.

Shannon-May recommended a stunning venue in Fredericton to have our elopement. She covered every detail of the day, from considering the perfect time for our outdoor golden hour couples portraits to preparing and guiding us (a camera-shy couple) through photography poses. We felt so comfortable and confident in front of the camera.

Deanna scripted and officiated the most beautiful ceremony I could have ever imagined. The script was so personal, it felt like she knew us our entire 10-year relationship. She knew the right questions to ask in our questionaries and prepared us with personal resources to help write our vows. Her words brought tears to everyone in the room. She even added a special touch by having our vows printed on personal cards to read during the ceremony, and she had our ceremony script typed and printed with a photo of us on the cover. I think I’ve read it at least one hundred times since our wedding.

Shannon-May and Deanna are as genuine as it gets, they work so well together to create something so beautiful. I cannot recommend this duo enough. I encourage you to choose NB elopements. I wish I could relive the day over and over again because it truly was perfection.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Working with New Brunswick Elopements was the best decision my now-wife and I made for our wedding. Shannon-May and Deanna were warm, helpful, and incredibly easy to work with from our very first meeting to the delivery of our (beautifully shot, selected, and edited) wedding photos. They have years of experience working in the industry and it showed in every piece of advice and quickly-answered question. From the small stuff to the big stressors, they had an answer or a solution for everything– and if they didn’t, they were willing to move heaven and earth to find one!

Navigating event planning during the COVID pandemic has been anxiety-inducing. Deanna and Shannon-May were available and with us every step of the way. Days before our event restrictions changed suddenly, and the two of them immediately stepped in and helped research options. They remained reassuring and calm throughout all the turmoil, and our wedding went off without a hitch.

In the planning stage, they broke down the process of what needed to happen, what was on us to accomplish, and how they could help. Everything felt incredibly manageable! The two of them were so kind and professional. The ceremony Deanna wrote and officiated for us was personal, touching, and exactly what we wanted. Shannon-May captured the most beautiful small moments as well as the nicest family portraits either my wife or I have ever had. Working with them was easy, fun, and filled with small touches that really show how much they care about their couples.

I cannot recommend working with them enough.

We loved working with Shannon-May and Deanna! The process of planning our elopement was stress-free, simple, and fun! They listened to everything we wanted and helped us find creative ways to incorporate our personalities, love stories and wishes in our day. Every detail was thought of, and we were given support every step of the way.

Shannon-May captures every moment beautifully. She makes you feel relaxed and comfortable every step of the way and knows exactly how to get beautiful shots.

Deanna has this incredible talent to listen to your history and weave it into a beautiful and meaningful story. It felt like she had known us for our entire lives and it showed on our day.

I cannot recommend New Brunswick Elopements enough!
