Weddings and Retreats

Meetings, Retreats & Conferences

We believe nature enhances meetings, retreats, and conferences by fostering the time and space for deeper thought, reflection, and connection. Groups that host their events at IslandWood find that nature is not just a backdrop, but an integral part of their experience.

IslandWood is the quintessential Pacific Northwest backdrop for your wedding. A 35-minute ferry ride from Seattle, our 250-acre property is gorgeous, private, and tranquil. You and your guests can roam and explore our forested trails, pond, meadow, garden, two treehouses, suspension bridge and canopy tower. The natural beauty of our property is surpassed only by the simple, thoughtful elegance of our kitchen’s cuisine. And you can feel good knowing that by having your wedding at IslandWood, you’re supporting exceptional equity-oriented environmental education programs.
