elopement wedding ceremonies throughout the san juan islands

"Didier curated an amazing summer elopement ceremony for my husband and me. We were so happy with the process from beginning to end. We both wanted something simple, yet memorable and we could not be any happier with the result. He was so kind, flexible, and very knowledgeable about his magical home in Eastsound. Our ceremony was incredibly special, and we look forward to spending many anniversaries in Orcas Island for years to come. We highly reccomend Didier for all your wedding needs. Cheers!"

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 country. 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 marry 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 elopement ceremony with your input ($300)


Pricing for the following depends on your interests:


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

"Didier did a great job communicating with us prior to our elopement and made the officiating personal to who we are as a couple. He is friendly easy to talk to and knows how to make the process smooth and comfortable. I highly recommend him."
