Destin Weddings Profile | Tony & Clarissa

Congrats to Tony and Clarissa who will be getting married in Destin on the SOLARIS yacht this October. Our wedding planners were so excited to meet this couple and discuss their vision for their dream wedding in Destin Florida. October is simply one of the most beautiful times of year in Destin Florida, with cooler weather, less crowds, the migration of butterflies, less humidity and pristine sunsets – perfect for a SOLARIS yacht wedding!
Engagement Story: Tony and Clarissa met online 2 years ago and it’s been a whirlwind ever since.  They’ve been here, there and everywhere.  They love experiencing new things together and visiting family and friends.  Tony and Clarissa can’t wait to start their life together as husband and wife!
About them:  Clarissa loves music (singing in the church choir, listening to live music, play several instruments) and games and puzzles, primarily Sudoku; She’s very involved in her church and active in her sorority; Tony likes music (he plays guitar with the church band), likes sports (huge Miami Dolphins and Auburn Tigers fan), plays golf and shoots pool; they both love “old school” music; Clarissa is a huge Earth, Wind and Fire fan and Tony is probably an even bigger Johnnie Taylor fan.
Wedding Details: Tony and Clarissa are envisioning their wedding in Destin on the SOLARIS yacht to be beachy, elegant and innovative. Their colors are teal and silver, a perfect compliment to the open waters where they will be married. They chose the SOLARIS yacht because location is important to them and they want their guests to enjoy and remember the scenery and setting.
Congrats again. We are so honored to be part of your special day!

Destin Fla Weddings Profile | Kim and Franklin Johnson

Congrats to Kim and Franklin who are getting married in Destin on the SOLARIS yacht next May!
Here’s Kim’s story on how they fell in love: “The first day we met, Franklin told me it was love at first sight and one day I would be his wife. I laughed as I brushed him off. Through the years we developed a close friendship, which eventually led us to becoming best friends. Everyone around us believed we were more than friends, but we knew the bond we shared.
Twelve years later, we decided to take our friendship to another level and began dating. Our love for each other is very special because we built our relationship on friensdship. Today we are happy and anxiously waiting to exchange our vows among close family and friends. We are truly happy and can’t wait to start our journey together as Mr. and Mrs. Johnson!!”

A little bit about them: Kim likes music, dancing and simply having a good time. Franklin likes to work out and also does Mixed Martial Arts fighting. They love to have a good time together and enjoy a good meal.
Kim and Franklin describe their ideal wedding as simple, elegant and romantic. They are working with the SOLARIS Destin wedding planner Kristi to plan a peacock color theme, infusing horizon blues, emerald greens and light gold colors throughout the wedding and reception – a perfect compliment to the Destin waters for their wedding. There will be 3 bridesmaids and 3 groomsmen at the wedding. We can’t wait to hear Kim’s niece sing the first song they dance to.
Congrats to this great couple – it’s going to be an amazing wedding!
