There is hardly a more spectacular or memorable place to host a wedding than beneath the peaks in the heart of a national park! The North Cascades Environmental Learning Center is an ideal venue for a wedding. Bring your friends and family to the North Cascades to celebrate your special occasion. You will be surrounded by pristine landscapes and be catered to by our friendly and dedicated staff.

Our indoor and outdoor facilities allow you to plan your wedding the way you imagine. We can accommodate up to 92 guests at our ADA-accessible facility.

Our meals feature elegant menus made with organic foods from the Skagit Valley region and can be customized to match any dietary needs. Additionally, guests can enjoy nature walks along one of the many trails starting from our facility and leading into the North Cascades National Park. There are also canoeing opportunities available.

"When Tricia first talked about wanting a beautiful, natural place for her wedding, North Cascades Institute came immediately into my mind. Having attended some wonderful classes at the campus, I already had my own wish to assemble the family there for a reunion. What better plan than to combine two wonderful happenings in one beautiful site. The wedding/reunion could not have been better. Over the course of 3 wonderful days we had the chance to get acquainted with the groom's family and to enjoy the food and the trails, the library and the hospitality of the learning center. Highlights were the food, the love, the campfire and, last but certainly not least, the wedding itself. My daughter summed it up with "everything I wished for in my wedding!"
