Eighth consecutive year winner of testimonial-based Destin wedding venue accolades

 
THANK YOU! SunQuest Cruises is pleased to announced that its wedding client reviews have earned the SOLARIS yacht two distinguished Destin wedding venue accolades – the Knot’s Best of Wedding Venues Award for the eighth consecutive year and the 2017 WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Award. Both prestigious awards represent the highest-rated wedding professionals throughout the nation as reviewed by real couples, their families and wedding guests.
 
“We are honored and grateful that our wedding planners and yacht venue have been top-rated by our clients for eight consecutive years,” stated James Murray, General Manager for SunQuest Cruises. “Our goal with every wedding from start to finish is to give the couple and their guests an unforgettable wedding experience with excellence in service, quality, professionalism and timeliness.”
 
In 2017, only two percent of the 300,000 local wedding professionals listed on TheKnot.com have received the distinguished Best of Weddings accolade. In its eleventh year, The Knot assessed almost one million reviews from real couples across the various vendor categories. These winners represent the best of the best for wedding planning professionals that a bride or groom would want to consider for their own unique wedding. Two years ago, the SOLARIS was also inducted into the Knot’s Best of Weddings Hall of Fame, awarded to exceptional wedding professionals who have earned four or more The Knot Best of Weddings awards.

 
The WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Awards® 2017 recognizes the top five percent of wedding professionals in the WeddingWire Network who demonstrate excellence in quality, service, responsiveness and professionalism. Winners are determined solely based on reviews from real newlyweds and their experiences working with SunQuest Cruises SOLARIS.

We congratulate all of this year’s winners on their achievements.”

Destin Weddings on SOLARIS Yacht Venue | Alexis and Kyle

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!
