north cascades visitor center wedding // katie & nic

The North Cascades Visitor Center wedding hall is actually just a boardwalk with an overlook into the mountains. The first image below is the view from the platform. This is a hall with pilasters of fir, arches of birch, murals of blue and distant peaks, cornices of cedar bows; the platform provides a spiritual and beautiful for all. This is where Katie & Nic chose to bind their spirits and make a sacred place to them for the rest of their lives. They setup camp and a dining room in the middle of the Newhalem Campground nearby. Their reception theme was “Cheeseburgers and Champagne” and they nailed it. With home made marshmallows and a gin bar, they celebrated the occasion in style, in nature, and well into the night.A campout wedding at the north cascades visitor center wedding and diablo lake.  A campout wedding at the north cascades visitor center wedding and newhalem campground. A campout wedding at the north cascades visitor center wedding and newhalem campground.
