Gig Harbor and Tacoma are approximately 20-30 miles from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, which has daily service to most major airports throughout the country.
We will have shuttle bus transportation will be available from the Wesley Inn to and from the venue on the wedding day. The shuttle will run multiple times throughout the night to and from the venue.
For those of you looking to explore the greater Seattle area, we recommend booking a rental car for your trip. It is possible to get around without one, but as our wedding is happening outside of Seattle, public transit and Ubers will not be as readily available as they are in Seattle.
For those driving, there is a $6 toll for those heading from Gig harbor to Tacoma on the Tacoma Narrows Bridge.
Plenty of parking will be available onsite at the venue for those choosing to drive to the ceremony/reception.

Chambers Bay - 2.31 Miles - Home of the 2015 US Open. There are open tee times before/after the wedding but it is all booked on the weekend and on Monday.
