Destin Florida Engagements | Sayge & Heather

This Sunday was a beautiful day in Destin Florida and just the way to start out our week with a very special moment. Sayge and Heather met our wedding coordinator Julie for a tour of the SOLARIS yacht venue for weddings at the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. However, Sayge had a different agenda that day.
 
That day, they said “I Do” to an official engagement AND a wedding on the SOLARIS yacht. Sayge got down on one knee at on the SOLARIS sky deck and gave Heather the most beautiful ring! Getting engaged and married at the same location – beyond romantic.
 
And it just so happened that 30A caught it with a live video on Facebook. Watch this!
 
Our wedding planners can’t wait to plan this amazing wedding with this amazing couple! Congrats again!
