Alaska Wedding Venues Perfect For Elopements and Small Weddings
Alaska is easily one of the best places to elope, but couples sometimes struggle to decide where to plan their wedding ceremony, especially if they’re bringing along some family and friends. This is why we put together a list of our favorite wedding venues in Alaska that are ideal for elopements and small weddings.
Luckily for you, most of these locations do provide some sort of elopement or small wedding package. These are usually way less expensive and hosted during the middle of the week.

Aurora Skies Lodging
Nothing says an intimate wedding than two private cabins off the road in the mountains near Seward, Alaska. Aurora Skies is the perfect place for you to host a small wedding ceremony. They even have trails nearby if you want to explore a bit!
Raven Glacier Lodge
Raven Glacier Lodge is a wedding venue in Girdwood, Alaska. We love the whimsical feel this venue gives with its cabins and nearby forest all around the venue. This is the perfect intimate setting for couples looking to get away from it all and have a gorgeous setting, without the hike.
Hatcher Pass Cabins
Nothing says Alaska more than Hatcher Pass’s red cabins. The perfect location for your elopement adventure too. These cabins sell out pretty quickly, especially during peak season, so our best recommendation is to plan ahead and during the off-season. Your elopement vendor who specializes in Alaska elopements can be more insightful for alternatives if you can’t book a cabin here.
If you’re trying to go for more of the adventure elopement vibe, then check out Viking Cove in Haines, Alaska. It’s on a 12-acre peninsula that is secluded from everything. You’ll get to enjoy views of meadows, beaches, mountains, and forests all for yourself during your wedding day. You can even stay overnight after your ceremony here because they do have some accommodation options.
Eklunta Lake by Anchorage, Alaska is probably one of the best scenic spots. It’s nestled in the Chugach Mountains and it’s less than an hour’s drive from Anchorage. There are plenty of trails and water activities to do here, along with a campground you can stay overnight. We personally prefer staying at a near Airbnb or Vrbo, which could make for the perfect spot to host your micro wedding (always be sure to check if hosting a small wedding is ok with the owner).
Seward Windsong Lodge
If you’re looking for a coastal wedding venue option near Seward, Alaska, then Seward Windsong Lodge is the place. This venue is located on the Resurrection River Valley and you actually get views all around from forests, mountains, and the river itself. Although this place is used for bigger weddings, you can 100% host a more intimate wedding here. It’ll also make the perfect place to stay on your wedding night.
Salted Roots Cabins
Probably one of the most unique boutique cabin-style inns we have seen in a while! Salted Roots Cabins is located in Seward, Alaska. They offer picturesque cabins with gorgeous glass-front design a-frames. They also have more modern designs too. You can rent the five cabins and accommodate up to 24 guests, which is perfect for a small wedding!
Veil and Vine
Located in Palmer, Alaska, Veil and Vine is a rustic barn and farm venue with multiple ceremony sites to choose from, including picturesque views of Pioneer Peak. You can also choose the Founder’s Chapel, the Pavilion, or the Gallery (their indoor option) to host your event. We love this venue because they have outdoor options that have roofs, so you and your guests can celebrate without a worry about rainy weather.
Millers Landing is perfect for couples looking for something completely different. You can rent out the entire campground space for your small wedding or you can rent a full day on one of their custom charters! Whatever you decide to do, this wedding venue in Seward, Alaska is for the adventurous couple year-round looking to explore together whether it be on a kayak or camping and staying up late to look at the stars.
