Imagine mountains high above you while standing on the wooded shores of the glacial blue Diablo Lake. The warm sun setting and your family and friends surrounding you as you say, “I do” in the heart of the North Cascades.
At the Environmental Learning Center, you can host your very own green wedding. We offer an all inclusive venue that includes lodging, custom homemade meals featuring local foods from the Skagit and Methow valleys, guided naturalist activities, as well as an onsite coordinator to help you plan your special wedding weekend.
Weddings at the Environmental Learning Center are ideal if you and your significant other are looking for a destination venue for your guests to relax, enjoy and experience. Surrounded by old growth forests and the vibrant turquoise Diablo Lake, you and your guests can explore the beauty of the North Cascades during your stay by hiking along one of the series of trails connected to our campus or by getting in a big canoe that fits 20 of your guests to see incredible views of mountain peaks.
We host weddings with a maximum of 86 guests. Our friendly and courteous staff will help from start to finish as well as educate guests about the local landscape. Our onsite chefs create delicious, gorgeous meals with fresh ingredients and the best part: you get to work directly with our head chef to make sure you get the custom meal you want at your wedding.
