It’s just a short ferry ride or car trip to the Kitsap Peninsula, but you’ll feel like you’re a world away at wedding venues that include farms, gardens, forests and, of course, breathtaking waterfront locales.

You couldn’t have a more beautiful setting for your destination wedding and the Kitsap Wedding Tour makes it easy to plan your special day with a self-guided tour of six unique venues. You’ll meet dozens of caterers and other professionals along the way and end the day with an after-party designed to celebrate your love story.

The fun starts at 11 a.m. Sunday, March 19. Online tickets are $12 per person and can be purchased here. Day-of tickets are $15 at the door.
