Elopement & Vow Renewal Package Fine Print
Let us handle all the details for your elopement. Just show up and say, “I Do”!
Ceremony Location & Times
Our elopement & vow renewal packages include use of the Tucker House Inn Shade Garden for your ceremony. The fronds of the giant weeping willow are a magnificent backdrop to say, “I Do.” During the time of year when it is not conducive to be outdoors, your package includes a site fee for a private ceremony in the atrium of the Island Museum of Art, a few blocks from the Inn. If you prefer a setting in one of our county, state or national parks with breathtaking views of the water or perhaps the lavender fields in full bloom, an off-premise fee applies.
Plan your ceremony between 11 am and 5 pm on your second day. If you are using the Island Museum of Art, the atrium is available between 11 and 5 on Tuesday and Wednesday and after 6 pm the rest of the week.
There is also a summer surcharge of $250 for weddings June 15 – September 15th, holidays and holiday weekends.
Take the first night to settle into “Island Time” prior to the “big day”.
Our in-house Pastry Chef will prepare a six-inch cake. Choose from devil’s food, old fashion white, or carrot with either fruit, chocolate ganache or buttercream filling and Italian buttercream or whipped cream frosting. Please let us know if there are any dietary restrictions or food allergies.
Your package includes a bouquet of flowers from local growers and the Inns’ gardens. For weddings outside the peak growing season, your bouquet will include a half dozen roses.
The San Juan Island Inn Collection’s in-house officiant will preside at your ceremony.
Breakfast, Dinner & Toast
Your package includes a post-ceremony toast. The food & beverage credit for the Chinook and Sockeye Elopement Packages is at Coho Restaurant. We will then make your dinner reservation to coordinate with the timing of your ceremony. When Coho Restaurant is closed, we offer a dining voucher to another Friday Harbor restaurant. Enjoy a candlelight breakfast delivered to your door the morning after.
The San Juan Island Inn Collection’s in-house photographer/videographer will create a custom video of your special day. The package includes 2 hours of photography/videography including getting ready photos, the ceremony and dinner reception. If you want to take photos throughout the island, additional time is billed on an hourly basis. See samples of our photographer/videographer’s work in our photo gallery and video gallery.
Please apply for your wedding license at least 3 days prior to your special day.
A 50% deposit on your wedding package and lodging is due at time of booking. The balance is due 2 weeks prior to arrival for both the wedding and lodging.
