"Our weekend in the Orcas Islands at the Gottman’s Couples Retreat would not have been as perfect without the help of Orcas Weddings and Events. The service we received was exceptional and beyond the call of duty! The catering was exquisite -dishes made with only local organic produce was some of the best we've enjoyed rivaling some of the finest 5 star restaurants. The accommodations were superb. All that being said, by far the most memorable was Veronica's friendliness and dedication to impeccable customer service. When our schedule changed, she was tireless in her efforts to help us re-arrange our travel so we enjoy the beauty of the island longer! Thank you Veronica! I would highly recommend using your services to all our friends!"
