The San Juan Islands are an attractive wedding destination with many great places to be married in picturesque settings. Now for the planning.


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. 


The time between your engagement and saying, "I do" can be stressful, but it certainly doesn't need to be. 


Creating a wedding from an off-island location can be challenging. 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. We make it easier to plan an island destination wedding.


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 and facilitate a great experience for your family and friends.
  • We work with island professionals to create your ideal wedding.
  • Saving you time researching and booking quality vendors.
  • Event Design and Set-Up
  • Logistical support: transportation, ferry reservations, lodging, meals.


There are probably options you haven’t even thought of yet! 


  • Long after the wedding is over, you will look back on it as the beginning of your married life together with fond memories to last a lifetime!
