So that nobody had to drive home, we booked Katy’s Inn and Benton Street Retreat for our guests along with several rooms at the Wild Iris and the Channel Lodge. This made the evening extra special and included a beautiful moonlight walk.
Tip: There are so many wonderful lodging options in La Conner but be sure to book early as summer is busy!
For the rehearsal dinner, we picked Anelia’s Kitchen & Stage right down the steps from the “La Conner hill”. We rented the entire restaurant and bar for the evening and created a special menu. There were two wonderful musicians playing that night!
Tip: There are many choices in La Conner for a catered event or private room. Check out the options here!
La Conner and the Skagit Valley has much to offer for things to do, it was hard to narrow it down! However, we wanted our guests from out of the state to experience Deception Pass. We rented an entire boat for both our families for a one-hour cruise. Deception Pass Tours does a wonderful job of integrating the history, nature and a fun boat ride! We also had guests rent kayaks right on the La Conner waterfront.
Tip: If we had more time for our guests (working around plane schedules), we would have booked Island Adventure Cruises too which departs right from La Conner and includes whale watching tours!
We loved our local wedding destination and so did our guests. They loved dining, shopping, staying overnight in La Conner and exploring the magic of Skagit Valley!
My husband and I felt good about keeping our money local and supporting our town, local businesses and farmers and fishermen!
