"Didier made our wedding planning and execution very easy and stress-free. Our goal was to make it fun for us and our guests. We wanted simple and non traditional. Didier was ready, willing and able to jump in and work with us to create the exact type of experience we wanted.”

Congratulations on your engagement! Life doesn’t stand still just because you are planning a wedding. The time between your engagement and saying, "I do" can be stressful, but it certainly doesn't need to be. 


Phone calls, e-mails, meetings, decisions, arrangements, and expenses involved in planning can leave a couple (and perhaps others helping to plan the wedding) feeling stressed, taking away from the magic of the big day and the ceremony that celebrates the power of their love. 


With many great places to be married in picturesque settings, the San Juan Islands is an attractive wedding destination. Creating a wedding from an off-island location can be challenging. You will benefit from our local expertise, creatively planning the biggest day of your life, making dreams come true, providing solutions, knowing all will go smoothly. 


It’s not how much you spend but how you spend that matters, getting maximimum value for the price you’re comfortable with.

  • We'll take stress off your mind.
  • Saving you time researching and booking vendors (photography, videographer, venue, caterer, party rentals, flowers, music, officiant, etc.).
  • Logistical support: transportation, ferry reservations, lodging, meals.
