You do not need a special permit to hold a wedding at Gold Creek Pond. However, since Gold Creek Pond is within the Mount Baker Snoqualmie National Forest, you will need a parking pass. It's also known as the Gold Creek Pond Trail. You can pay for your parking permit at the trailhead.

You should consider the weather when planning your wedding at Gold Creek Pond. The trail is located about 90 minutes east of Seattle along Interstate 90. It's just beyond Snoqualmie Pass. According to the National Forest Service, Gold Creek Pond Trail sits at an elevation of 3,000 feet. The weather can be chilly. Expect plenty of snow in the winter. As a result, the parking lot is usually covered in a few feet of snow! People love visiting Gold Creek Pond during snowy seasons. Seattle Mag named it January hike of the month! It's also a popular snowshoe destination.
In the summer, we suggest planning your engagement, elopement or wedding photography about 2 hours before sunset. That's because the mountains block the sun as it gets closer to the horizon. Most couples prefer the pond and Cascade mountain range in the background.
