    Perfect place for a small, rustic wedding

    I'm so glad we found Bear Creek Lodge. We wanted a small wedding away from the big city, and I am all about the photos. Every. Single. Shot turned out amazing! Even the super sweet little details, like the tree faces, the handmade boat on the pond, and the antique wagon wheels that made the perfect backdrop for my wedding dress. I can't recommend Bear Creek Lodge enough!

    Winter weddings are the best

    I didn't know you could get married in the winter in Alaska, but Bear Creek Lodge made it happen so beautifully. We had a short ceremony near the pond, then we all sat around a giant fire near the creek that was still slightly running. It was so beautiful the way our entire family and friends shared in our special day. The lodge owner, Jeannine, is amazing to work with. She answered every question, and she even did the cake cutting (which was no small feat, considering it was my mom's homemade 5 layer cake!).

    Small town charm

    You simply don't get any more 'Alaskan' than Bear Creek Lodge. My family stayed in all the cabins, and they still talk about it today. We had the ceremony by the creek over the little foot bridge. Our video and photos look like something out of Narnia. Magical! I loved working with the lodge staff. They were patient with all my questions, and they even provided a small bottle of wine for each guest in the cabins! I loved every little detail. My wedding was perfect. I only regret that I can't get married again to have it at Bear Creek once again. Can you do one-year anniversaries at the lodge and renew your vows each year? :)

    Sent on 04/17/2019

    Hope Alaska's Bear Creek Lodge's reply:

    This is so sweet, Tahlia! You can definitely renew your vows here at the lodge whenever you like. We can't wait to see you and your new hubby here in Hope very soon.
