Elopement Weddings

Why elope to the San Juan Islands?

The San Juan Islands are the second most popular island destinations to be married in the U.S. Whether it is Orcas Island, San Juan Island, or Lopez Island, there are many picturesque settings near saltwater, by freshwater lakes, on balconies with epic views, in forests, at majestic venues. for an elopement wedding. 


While couples choose to elope in the San Juan Islands, it's not always feasible or desired to have their friends and family join them for the wedding. Couples elope to focus on each other, cut costs, minimize logistics and costs for their guests, and because they are inspired to have an elopement wedding in natural beauty.  


Elopements can include the following:


  • simple elopement ceremony ($175)
  • personalized ceremony with your input ($300)


Pricing for the following depends on your interests:


  • active elopement package (kayaking, hiking, sailing, wildlife viewing) 
  • local culture (art and farms, breweries/wineries/distilleries; island food)
  • custom elopement package based on your interests on Lopez, Orcas, or San Juan (includes lodging, wedding ceremony, island made products)
  • 3-island elopement package


Witnesses: Two people sign the documents. Feel free to ask them to take photos with your phone during the ceremony.  $50 each


I'm happy to help with lodging, transportation, and other logistics that go along with a destination elopement!
