For a truly fairytale wedding experience, you would be wise to consider picturesque Leavenworth as your destination of choice. This mountain town is a charming replica of an authentic Bavarian Village, making it a romantic spot to start the rest of your life. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you plan your Leavenworth wedding and honeymoon.

How to Get to Leavenworth

Leavenworth is conveniently located approximately two hours from Seattle and two hours from Chelan. Because Leavenworth is nestled into the Cascade Mountains, you never know what you might encounter on your journey there. If you plan on going during fall or winter, you might deal with snowy roads, making it important that you check conditions before heading out and make arrangements accordingly. If Stevens Pass is unpassable, you can check the road conditions on Snoqualmie Pass as an alternate route.

Picking the Best View

Leavenworth offers its visitors a variety of lodging accommodations. Choose from full-service resorts, cozy cabins in the woods, riverside lodges, and more. Celebrate your wedding or honeymoon in style by choosing a place to stay with a great view of Leavenworth’s natural beauty. In the summer, some of the best views involve looking out over the quaint village or the rolling golf courses that dot the landscape of Leavenworth. In the winter, you will be greeted with stunning mountain landscapes covered in blankets of white and fluffy snow.

Popular Romantic Activities

There is no shortage of amazing romantic activities to celebrate your love while in Leavenworth. During the warm months, you can enjoy a horse-drawn carriage through the magical town. When the snow starts falling down, Leavenworth turns into a festive destination perfect for a sleigh ride. With more than a dozen wine tasting venues downtown, it is easy to find the perfect spot to curl up with your partner and enjoy a drink. You can even grab a bottle of wine along with some meats by Cured by Visconti’s and cheeses from The Cheesemonger Shop and head out for a picnic in the mountains. The Leavenworth Summer Theater is also a great place to spend an evening taking in a world-class outdoor production of various classics.

Your wedding and honeymoon are incredibly important! Leavenworth is the perfect backdrop for the biggest day of your life. With the right planning and execution, you will have the wedding and honeymoon that you have always dreamed of in this true fantasyland.
