One of the Best San Juan Island Wedding Venues

These days, there’s no need for wedding planning to be stressful! Especially when you choose one of the best San Juan Island wedding venues as your homebase and reception site. We’ve hosted hundreds of successful events at our Friday Harbor Bed and Breakfast, and we know the ins and outs of the San Juan Islands for all the details. 

Here are the top five reasons why our Friday Harbor Bed and Breakfast is one of the best San Juan Island wedding venues: 

  1. Central Location in Friday Harbor: Our Friday Harbor Bed and Breakfast is steps from the Friday Harbor Ferry and sea plane terminal and is an ideal base for your special gathering. Guests can explore the island independently during the day and gather together in the evening at the inn, which serves as a central location. There are numerous common areas on the grounds for socializing and catching up. You’ll be within walking distance of the best Friday Harbor restaurants, shops, and cafes.
  2. Wedding Package Options: First, it’s important to note that all of our wedding packages can be customized to fit the wedding of your dreams! You’ll work closely with our wedding planner to hammer out all the details, and then we’ll take care of all the rest. The base package includes the wedding officiant, flowers, wedding cake, bottle of sparkling wine, wedding ceremony photographs and video, Coho restaurant dining credit, massages for the couple, a candlelight breakfast, and the site fee for the ceremony. 
  3. On-site Catering from Coho Restaurant: Located just a block from our Friday Harbor Bed and Breakfast, our farm-to-fork style restaurant serves as our catering provider for all weddings and elopements. If you’re only looking for a caterer, Coho Restaurant can do that too! We work closely with the engaged couple to design and provide a menu that satisfies all appetites. We pride ourselves in using local ingredients and supporting local farms. 
  4. Ample Lodging Accommodations: One element that sets us apart from other San Juan Island wedding venues is that we can provide lodging accommodations for up to 70 guests and offer room blocks to ease reservations for destination weddings. This takes a lot of stress off your guests and, in turn, you! Our cozy guest rooms, spacious multi-room suites, and vacation cottages are the perfect spaces for people to relax pre and post-ceremony and reception. 
  5. Elopement Package Options: For those looking for one of the best San Juan Island wedding venues for your elopement, our Friday Harbor Bed and Breakfast offers the perfect secluded destination. Our elopement package options give you everything you need for a private ceremony and a romantic honeymoon. Our most deluxe package includes a wedding officiant, floral bouquet, wedding cake, bottle of sparkling wine, 50 wedding ceremony photographs, $200 Coho restaurant dining credit, and so much more!
