North Head Lighthouse Weddings - Cape Disappointment

North Head Lighthouse

The North Head Lighthouse, on a cliff high above the Pacific Ocean, is a glorious spot for shorter ceremonies and smaller weddings. The lighthouse grounds are available for wedding ceremonies only. Receptions need to be held elsewhere. Built in 1898 to assist ships near the mouth of the Columbia River, it is one of the few lighthouses along Washington's Pacific Coast that is open to the public. North Head Lighthouse Keepers' Residence is available nearby for honeymoon or other overnight rental.


The lighthouse overlook can accommodate up to 25 guests outside.
