Ceremony & Reception Venues

Sunken Garden ~ Up to 300 guests

Centrally located in a lush flower garden that’s filled with vibrant colors, this is an ideal setting for intimate weddings. The garden shows its blooms from April through October, peaking with colors in May and June, so there’s not much more to do to make this the perfect outdoor ceremony site in the San Juans.

Chapel ~ Up to 120 guests

The historic Our Lady of Good Voyage Chapel sits on the hillside overlooking the harbor and is available as a ceremony option or back-up plan should it rain. This unique Roche Harbor gem has stood majestically on the shoreline for more than a century and is still used for regular services during the summer.

Shipwreck Beach

What better way to spend the night before your wedding than with close family and friends at a laid-back, gourmet, seaside barbecue? Our casual welcome dinner venue has all the elements for a magical evening…tents, outdoor display kitchen, fire pit, and phone-ready music system. (Seasonal availablity only)

While we’re fortunate to have stunning scenery throughout the grounds, you’ll find our culinary arts on the tip of everyone’s tongue during the wedding reception.

Our culinary team selects choice, local ingredients for our menus, because we know that’s what our clients and their guests crave. Whether it’s seafood from the Salish Sea, beef from Eastern Washington, or produce from the Skagit Valley, we search out the best of what’s around.

Creating recipes to highlight our strong sense of place in the San Juans is essential to the cuisine we prepare for your reception. Our menus focus on seafood and shellfish, while offering robust accompaniments of Washington beef and chicken, hearty vegetables and seasonal salads.

Roche Harbor Weddings carry on our general approach of “dining as entertainment,” so attendees will be treated to a visible culinary team preparing and serving food directly in front of them. The smells and sounds of fresh steelhead on the griddle is something guests will talk about throughout the evening.
