Choosing an Island

Whatever your wedding dream, one of the San Juan Islands has a venue to make it a reality. Each of the three main islands--Lopez, Orcas and San Juan--has a distinct beauty and charm of its own, all with breathtaking settings.

Lopez Island

You’ll immediately feel at home on “The Friendly Island,” with its meandering country roads and quiet beaches. Envision your family and friends gathered among sun-drenched vines at the organic winery, toasting to your health and happiness with estate-grown wine. Or choose a perfectly preserved 1920s schoolhouse, a farm-to-table waterfront restaurant or a dockside resort.

Orcas Island

On “The Emerald Isle,” the choices are endless. From Orcas Island's historic resort to cabins dotting the rocky shorelines of Deer Harbor and Doe Bay, your wedding site will inspire with a stunning view. Beautiful farms with rustic barns, charming Eastsound inns, historic halls and an emerald green golf course also offer unique sites for you to choose from for your special day.

San Juan Island

Natural and cultural wonders abound on San Juan Island. Exchange vows in a gorgeous garden in full bloom at an historic waterfront resort, or in a traditional, white-steepled chapel. Imagine your wedding in a truly unique 19-acre sculpture park, a lighthouse, or fields of purple at a lavender farm. Get married in a vineyard, at a lakeside resort or at the golf or yacht club.
