Schedule a Visit

You are welcome to visit the Tucker House Inn and check out the ceremony site in advance of your big day. Otherwise, put yourself in the capable hands of your personal wedding concierge who will take care of all the details including choosing the ideal ceremony location based on your vision and of course Mother Nature. Small weddings are meant to be stress free so leave the planning to us!

Ceremony Location & Times

Our small wedding 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 $100 lodging credit toward the San Juan Suite or 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 a summer surcharge of $350 for weddings June 15 – September 15th, holidays and holiday weekends.

Take the first night to settle into “Island Time” prior to the “big day.

Your personal wedding concierge will coordinate all the pieces of your Small Intimate Wedding package on San Juan Island!

Wedding Cake

Our in-house Pastry Chef will prepare a cake based on the size of your party. Choose from devil’s food, old fashion white, carrot, German chocolate, red velvet 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. Two-tiered cakes with a top tier keepsake, fondant icing, or a customized topper are also available upon request, for an additional cost.

Floral Bouquet

Your package includes a floral bouquet with flowers from local growers and the Inns gardens. For weddings outside the peak growing season, your bouquet will include a half dozen roses. If you prefer a custom arrangement for the ceremony, for dinner or personal flowers for your attendants or guests, an additional cost applies.

Officiant

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 and a food & beverage credit at Coho Restaurant. Your personal wedding concierge will take care of making your dinner reservations to coordinate with the timing of your ceremony. When Coho Restaurant is closed, we will prepare a private dinner in the Garden Cafe. Enjoy a candlelight breakfast delivered to your door the morning after.

Photography/Videography

Then, the San Juan Island Inn Collection’s in-house photographer/videographer will create a custom video of your special day. The package includes a minimum of 1 hour 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.

Additional Guests

We are happy to accommodate up to 8 additional guests for the ceremony, wedding dinner or overnight stay. Rooms are based on availability and rate at the time of booking.

Aesthetics & Decor
