Designed to celebrate the marriage of two distinctively different Nations, the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre is a natural setting for the coming together of families and celebrating new partnerships . Hold your ceremony amongst the totem poles and under exhibits suspended in the Great Hall, or dine on our covered patio nestled against the Pacific Northwest forest while enjoying spectacular views of Blackcomb Mountain. In any of our unique and versatile spaces, a wedding at the Cultural Centre is a truly unforgettable experience.
