Destination Wedding

ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center, along with our expert event planning staff, will make your destination wedding day exceptional.

Vermont’s idyllic natural beauty and cosmopolitan flair combine to make the ideal setting for your picture-perfect wedding day especially when everyone, including the bride and groom, are traveling from afar.

ECHO is the perfect venue for your destination wedding. Nestled along the sparkling shore of Lake Champlain on the Burlington waterfront, our wedding venue offers breathtaking views of the Lake and the Adirondack Mountains at every turn while creating an atmosphere where all the guests feel like they are part of a grand vacation.

ECHO lies on the shores of Lake Champlain in the Queen City of Burlington, VT one of the most beautiful, welcoming and convenient cities in all of New England. ECHO is within easy walking distance of both the Church Street Marketplace - our award-winning pedestrian mall - and several of Burlington’s premier hotels, as well as a short drive from dozens of charming inns and B&Bs. And for all of your out-of-town guests, you’ll be happy to know that ECHO is just 3.7 miles from the Burlington International Airport

And we’re GREEN! ECHO Lake Aquarium is a LEED certified building with geothermal heating and cooling as well as solar panels on the roof for the creation of renewable electricity.

So not only will your guests be impressed with the stunning location of your wedding, they’ll be impressed by your commitment to creating a memorable wedding event that is kind to our planet.

At ECHO, we understand that eco-friendly weddings are so much more than a moment to exchange vows…but let us help you make that moment as beautiful and meaningful as possible!

Your green wedding day is also a chance to warmly welcome dear family and friends as the two of you celebrate the start of your new life.  The setting will be one of the biggest planning decisions you make, and ECHO invites you and your guests to celebrate this unforgettable time with us.

Let us put our creativity and expertise to work for you. We’ll help you create your perfect green wedding day with memories to last a lifetime.
