Outdoor Weddings

Historic Copper Creek Inn, Cabins and Lodge, located 2 miles from the Nisqually entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park, provides a unique wedding venue. The secluded 6.5 acre property is a beautiful setting hugged by Copper Creek on the east border. Your overnight guests enjoy cabins with hot tubs, solitude along the creek and trails through the woods, and the relaxed natural environment.


The Forest Amphitheater is a beautiful natural woodland setting with a raised stage area and massive rock steps. Your guests are seated on cedar slab benches. You are surrounded by a beautiful forest.
