As transplants to the PNW we had a little bit of a hard time choosing a wedding venue, but knew we wanted all of our friends and family to be able to experience this amazing place we now call home. After researching so many venues, we kept coming back to Roche Harbor. In looking back on it, it was the single best decision we could have made. From the very beginning the staff were professional, accommodating, and helpful in every way. They checked in with us periodically throughout the planning process and kept us up to date on any changes with the venue (new menus, drinks, etc.). For the day of, special shout outs to Sean and Reina for helping make all of the "little" things happen...I forgot to request a table for the photobooth, we needed an extra highchair, etc. and they took care of absolutely everything without a second thought, and truly helped me relax and know everything was take care of. Our guests are still commenting about what an amazing time they had and how much they loved San Juan Island. It was truly an incredible day and I cannot thank the staff at Roche Harbor enough for making it so memorable and seamless.Sent on 11/16/2019

Gorgeous venue for a summer evening wedding
We were thrilled with our decision to hold our wedding at Roche Harbor. Throughout the planning process they were responsive and friendly, both in person during several planning visits to the island and by email. Our party was on the small side (about 40), but none of the venue spaces felt too large or open. Food selections were excellent and the banquet team was willing to customize menu options for us, both to add vegetarian entree options (which were amazing) and to add late-evening deserts outside under the sunset. Their menu draws heavily from local farms and fisheries, and they worked well with the other San Juan vendors we used. And of course, the site itself is gorgeous, the perfect Pacific Northwest hideaway. Our wedding was adjacent to the 4th of July weekend, but the resort offers fantastic weekday pricing (the site fee was extremely reasonable despite the holiday). Overall, we couldn’t be happier than we are with the venue.Sent on 11/30/2019
