Dreamy Destinations :: Roche Harbor

Today we wanted to pass a little secret on to all of you looking for a sweet wedding venue... Let us introduce you to Roche Harbor.

The other day we received an email from one of our island brides "Ryan and I are still coming down from the high of our wedding on San Juan. Everyone was blown away by the beauty of the islands and the weather which just added to the beauty of the day." Elizabeth, our Boston bride, was ecstatic about her decision to travel with her friends and family all the way across the U.S. to a Washington island destination.

Just a short distance from Seattle and Vancouver, San Juan island offers some of the most beautiful wedding venues for a destination wedding in the U.S (in our humble opinion).  Of the many destinations on the island, Roche Harbor is the most highly sought after by those that are, shall we say, in-the-know about this little gem. The rugged seaside landscape, quaint historic village and alluring marina make Roche Harbor an ideal setting for a stylish Northwest wedding.

Despite its size, Roche Harbor offers so much of what couples are looking for today. Reasons we love it:

  • There are  highly talented, professional wedding vendors within close proximity - Yes, we have a list : )
  • It offers all the excitement of a destination wedding, while still being easily accessible to all of your guests
  • There is a beautiful church or garden setting, right on the ocean, for your ceremony and reception

Here is some more info about the various venues available at Roche Harbor. Also, to find out more about the island of San Juan in Washington State check out Visit San Juan.
