Destin Weddings on SOLARIS Yacht Venue | Alexis and Kyle

Congrats to Alexis and Kyle on their unforgettable fall wedding in Destin on the SOLARIS yacht. The couple chose our wedding package that included a sunset wedding on the sky deck and the reception immediately following on the other decks. It was a picture perfect day in Sandestin as our wedding planners prepared the yacht venue for the big day.
Alexis stunned in a full length, strapless, mermaid-tailored gown with a romantic up-sweep hairstyle and full length veil. Her bouquet was a luscious blend of blush and white flowers.
Alexis ascended the staircase from the bridal suite to the sky deck and met Kyle at the end of the aisle, as the SOLARIS yacht cruised into the sunset. After the romantic wedding and pictures, the couple danced the night away with their guests at the reception on the other decks of the SOLARIS.
Before the celebration was over, Alexis changed into a festive, short length cocktail dress. Alexis and Kyle exited down the marina as guests showered them with sparklers – a perfect way to end the evening.
Best wishes to Alexis and Kyle! We were honored to be part of your amazing day!

Destin Weddings on SOLARIS Yacht – Seth + Rachel

Destin Weddings on the SOLARIS Yacht Sandestin – Celebrating Seth & Rachel
Congratulations to Seth and Rachel on their Florida destination wedding on the SOLARIS yacht venue with a fun group of friends and family. The day began at sunrise with Destin beach wedding pictures, where some of Rachel’s bridesmaids experienced the Gulf of Mexico for the first time.
As Rachel got ready with her bridesmaids on-board the yacht’s private bridal suite, the SOLARIS cruised out into the open waters on an absolutely beautiful day for a Destin wedding.


Rachel stunned in a strapless, full length, mermaid-style beaded wedding gown while her bridesmaids wore full length, strapless navy blue dresses. Rachel’s bouquet featured an eclectic mix of vibrant yellow sunflowers, roses and navy blue accents.


Seth and Rachel met on the open air sky deck of the SOLARIS, with the bridal arch dawned in the same mix of flowers. Instead of a unity candle, they took part in a Blending of the Sands ceremony, a perfect complement to the nautical / beach theme for their wedding. Seth and Rachel exchanged vows and sealed it with a kiss on the sky deck as the SOLARIS sailed out into the sunset.


After wedding pictures, they went right into celebrating with a fun reception of food and music on the water. Guests indulged in chef-prepared meals and guests danced to live music. To end the night, Seth and Rachel exited under a tunnel of sparklers from guests.


Our Destin wedding planners were thrilled to partner with Destin wedding photographer,
Mari Darr-Welch who captured each moment perfectly.


Congrats again to Seth and Rachel on their amazing wedding!
