North Cascades National Park – A rugged, remote, and stunning location for your adventure elopement
Eloping in North Cascades National Park isn’t just a ceremony; it’s an adventure into the heart of nature. With the mountains, the seclusion, the picturesque backdrops at every turn – it’s a love story that’s personal and oh-so-extraordinary. For those wanting a true elopement adventure North Cascades National Park is an unbeatable spot, promising a magical day as epic as the natural wonders that define this hidden gem. Here are two of my favorite spots below:
Cascade Pass with Sahale Arm
Put on those hiking boots and get ready for a day of hiking! Cascade Pass with Sahale Arm offers a mesmerizing hiking experience through some of the most breathtaking alpine landscapes in the Pacific Northwest. This hike takes you through a variety of terrains, from dense forests to subalpine meadows and rocky alpine ridges. This trail is renowned for its stunning vistas of towering peaks, glaciers, and vibrant wildflowers during the summer months. The entire hike is approximately 11 miles long and is considered moderate to challenging. The views you get on this hike are beyond beautiful and would make the most stunning location to exchange vows!
Thornton Lakes and Trappers Peak
Here’s another one that’s going to require you to lace up those hiking boots! First you’ll hike about four miles up switchbacks until you get to a marker where you decide to hike down to Thornton Lakes or continue to hike up to Trappers Peak! Hiking up to Trappers Peak involves scrambling but is so worth it for the views at the top! This hike is approximately 10 miles roundtrip (if you go to Trappers Peak) and is considered moderate/strenuous but like I said…worth every bit of it! As a lover of mountain views, if I got to turn back time and elope, Trappers Peak is where I would choose any day!
There are so many options of epic elopement locations in North Cascades National Park. If you and your partner really want to add some adventure to your special day, definitely consider this park!

Mount Rainier National Park – A breathtaking backdrop for your Washington adventure elopement
Eloping at Mount Rainier National Park is an invitation to combine your love story with the beauty of nature. Mount Rainier National Park is special for its awe-inspiring landscapes, recreational opportunities, and the sheer sense of wonder it evokes in those who visit. Whether you seek outdoor adventures, a peaceful getaway, or a chance to connect with nature, Mount Rainier offers an unforgettable elopement experience. Here are two of my favorite spots below:
Mt Fremont Lookout
Fremont Lookout Trail that leads to the lookout is about 5.6 miles roundtrip and considered a moderate level hike. It takes you to a fire lookout and rewards you with views of mountains, glaciers, meadows, and maybe even some mountain goats if you’re lucky! A combination of these little “rewards” make the most beautiful location for your elopement!
Silver Forest Trail
A quick and easily accessible elopement location! Although more of a walk than a hike, the views are definitely top notch! You’ll be surrounded by beautiful wildflowers (in wildflower season) and pine trees and also have those gorgeous mountain views in your elopement day photos. If you aren’t into hiking all day but still want those epic mountain views, consider this spot!
Mount Rainier National Park has so many incredible elopement location options that the hardest part of your planning is probably going to be narrowing it down to where you want to say “I DO!” Be sure to check out the National Park Website for info on eloping at Mount Rainier National Park!
