My new favorite place in WA for a fun getaway and 'destination' wedding location is Roche Harbor! I have lived in Seattle for nearly six years but hadn't made the trip to San Juan Island until this past weekend. I LOVED it!! If you haven't headed up there yet, I recommend getting out your calendars right now and picking a weekend for a vaca!
I have a wedding there this summer that I can't wait for! The fab couple are using four different spaces on the resort grounds for their rehearsal, ceremony, reception and breakfast send off. The Hotel de Haro, the heart of resort, was built in 1886. The antique white hotel is on the marina and has lush greens pathways, beautiful gardens, open stone fire places, endless walking trails and is overall gorgeous!
Plus, what is extra special about this boutique resort are the people who operate it! If you are looking for a place to get married I definitely recommend calling Sam Jacobson, Lodging and Events Director, who works extra close with his wife Alejandra in Catering, who 'can do and create anything' and Trina Fessended, Lead Reservationist. These three are part of a wonder team that can turn any dream into a reality on the water of Puget Sound! It is extremely refreshing working with folks who come from a place of 'yes'!

I hope you have a fabulous trip up to Roche Harbor this summer!
