It all started …
Long ago in a galaxy far, far away. A guy with a wiener dog walked into a bar.
He met his future wife. And the rest is an adventure in the making.
Many of you will be traveling from Seattle and beyond. To welcome you to town, we’d like to invite you to join us at the Beach Shelter at Fort Worden for a casual opportunity to meet our friends and family and explore Fort Worden.
Friday August 9th
Fort Worden Beach Shelter
100 Harbor Defense Way

This is an intimate celebration with those closest to us.
Please RSVP for guests named on your invitation.
traveling to port townsend
The Scenic Drive
If you want to skip the ferry lines, you can drive around through Tacoma in just over 2 hours!…depending on traffic :)
For all of our fellow road trip lovers, the 3 hour version up Hood Canal is a beautiful, scenic route. Stop off for a hike at Lena Lake, take a swim in Lake Cushman, or just go where your heart leads you!
Nature lovers can make it a few days' affair and camp along the way :)
Seattle to Bainbridge Ferry
801 Alaskan Way, Seattle, WA
A little over 2 hours journey from the Seattle-Bainbridge ferry to Port Townsend!
Check the Washington State Ferries website for sailing times. Driving onto the ferry is about $25 each way, per car with 2 adults. The Seattle Ferry Terminal has boats to Bainbridge Island and to Bremerton. Please be sure to purchase your ticket and get in line for Bainbridge Island!
From Bainbridge Island, it's about a 1 hour drive to Port Townsend!
There is a lot to do in Bainbridge Island and along your drive — some of our favorites are the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, Eagle Harbor Book Company, Blakely Harbor Park, Bainbridge Brewing, Bruciato, and Via Rosa
Edmonds to Kingston Ferry
199 Sunset Ave S, Edmonds, WA
Just under 2 hours from the ferry to Port Townsend!
You'll land in Kingston and it's about a 50 minute drive to Port Townsend!
On the way consider stopping in one of our favorite, historic — and probably haunted :) — towns, Port Gamble
If you’d like to make it more than a day trip and stay for the weekend, there are plenty of options. We recommend booking sooner rather than later. August is the busy season in Port Townsend and lodging can get booked quickly!
200 Battery Way, Port Townsend, WA, US
The Reception will be held at the Bliss Vista Cottage at Fort Worden. There is limited lodging available but you will be close to all of the festivities!

things to do
These are a few of our favorite places to go (eat) and things to do. But there’s always more to explore so venture out and find something new to tell us about!
431 Water Street
Often our first stop in town for the best cup of coffee you’ll find. The staff is very knowledgeable — but very chatty… so think before you engage :)
1025 Lawrence Street
Probably the best restaurant in town! You can’t go wrong, but plan ahead of you want to go for dinner. Tables fill up fast.
The Rose Theatre
235 Taylor Street
Do yourself a favor and try and catch a movie in the Starlight Room. It’s 21+ so sorry kids, but grown ups can order food and drinks and enjoy a movie on the big screen from a comfy couch under a victorian chandelier.
North Beach Park
5787 Kuhn Street
A great spot to run with dogs and kids or go explore the other side of Fort Worden!
A short drive from Port Townsend with the Marrowstone Winery and Fort Flageler
Finnriver Farm & Cidery
124 Center Road
One of our go-to spots with a great view of the orchard, delicious ciders & cocktails, and a huge outdoor area. Great for kids!
2231 Washington St
Another of our favorites and an early contender for the wedding location — but it’s 21+ only. Huge list of beers and ciders from Washington and Oregon. They don’t serve food so you can bring in a picnic or a pizza!
Saturday Farmer's Market
650 Tyler Street
A great way to spend some time the morning before the reception! Visit our favorite pottery gnome and buy what we can only imagine will become your favorite cup.
Owl Sprit Cafe
218 Polk Street
Vegan restaurant that’s as tasty as it is healthy
Elevated Ice Cream
631 Water Street
Satisfying Blake’s sweet tooth since 1980
You are the gift
