Roche Harbor Resort Wedding on San Juan Island | Liz + Aaron

Roche Harbor Resort Wedding on San Juan Island | Liz + Aaron

For their long-anticipated wedding, Liz and Aaron wanted to share with their guests the sights, sounds, and seaside scents of one of the most historic locations in the San Juans — Roche Harbor Resort— a beautiful, quintessentially Pacific Northwest getaway. For two self-described “decidedly unromantic” people, they put together a weekend destination wedding that was a heartfelt and memorable celebration of their commitment for everyone who attended. Many of the details were handmade: Liz and Aaron designed their Chuppah, programs, and menus with signature touches. To customize their reception, they marked each table with an antique postcard of a notable location they have been– complete with the story of their trip written on the back, and then called each guest to their table using a vintage map. Their beautiful color scheme complimented the landscape of blues and greens and a pop of orange provided a bright contrast to the rainy day outside.

And, boy, was it ever a rainy October day. Their ceremony, set to be held in the lovely outdoor gardens, was moved inside to keep everyone dry, but it didn’t dampen their spirits at all. For us, thanks to a to-the-minute weather doppler app called “Dark Sky,” we were able to choreograph outdoor portraits in-between downpours, and everyone was happy! (Shh, by the way, Dark Sky is a trade secret! 😉 The rain gave a peaceful, subdued mood to the sleepy resort town, and gave the seaside air that special Northwest coastal feeling. I think a bit of weather sometimes makes a wedding day even more beautiful.

Finally, one of our favorite local entertainers, Michael Benson Band, made Liz and Aaron’s wedding reception a party to remember. Their live rendition of the Hava Nagila was so energetic and intense that every single guest was on the dance floor — I’ve never seen anything like it!

Liz and Aaron, congratulations on a wedding well done! We’re so happy for you, and to be a part of the life you share. Congratulations again!
