Deer Harbor is a very peaceful, quiet, and picturesque community, so it should come as no surprise that the local venues are often used for wedding ceremonies and retreats.  Planning services with decades of experience in finding their clients the perfect location and arrangement are eager to help make your special day perfect.  Be sure to enlist the assistance of Orcas Island’s professional pool of wedding photographers.  Local artists and musicians are available for hire to enliven your ceremony and reception.

Restaurant services in Deer Harbor and across Orcas Island have catering rehearsal dinners and wedding receptions down to an art, and offer a wide variety of savory fares for meal choices.  For a truly unique wedding or reception experience, charter a boat from one of Deer Harbor’s charter services and enjoy your special moment on the beautiful waters of the San Juan Islands.
