Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! We would be pleased to have your party at the Farm. The summer is the best time of year for outdoor weddings on San Juan Island, as that is when the lavender is in bloom and we do not have any indoor facilities. Specifically Mid-July to Mid-August is the best time of year for the fields to be at their “peak of purpleness”.
There are many locations at both American Camp and British Camp that offer spectacular views, that would be lovely locations for a wedding. Mount Young at British Camp offers an amazing view overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

Sailing aboard our traditionally gaff-rigged vessels engages your senses and takes you to another place in time, a time away from a busy world. The experience and the ship are filled with the history, adventure and romance of a by-gone day. Close your eyes and you'll hear the wind in the rigging and the water against a wooden hull, smell and taste the fresh salt air, and feel the gentle motion of the boat as she glides through the sea. These sensations have been shared amongst seafarers since the dawn of sail.
A beautiful, historic landmark for your intimate island wedding. if you continue out of town for a mile, turn left on Douglas, go another mile and look up cemetery hill, you will see a “beautiful little Gothic church, (now on the official Washington State Historical Register.)

Weekes.
