Your Wedding Venue – It’s All About the Experience

After the butterflies have settled from your engagement, it’s time to find the perfect venue for your upcoming wedding. The first step in wedding planning for most couples is the venue for the ceremony and reception as this will set the tone for everything else. The wedding venue is one of the most important decisions in the wedding planning process. If you are planning a destination wedding in a beautiful location such as Destin Florida, the venue becomes increasingly important for all logistics related to your guests attending.
 
So what are you looking for in a wedding venue? The number one answer our wedding planners get from our couples is an amazing, stress-free and unforgettable experience. Whether you are planning something locally or a destination wedding, you want an experience that you, your spouse and your guests will never forget.
 
At the end of the day, your guests may not remember what colors your flowers were or how you styled your hair, but they’ll probably remember how they felt at your wedding and reception. What was the ceremony like? What was the view like? How was the food? Did they dance the night away? What was the best memory they took away from your wedding?
 
The experience your venue offers is one of the biggest decisions to consider when planning your wedding. Our wedding planners have experience planning all types of weddings, from small intimate Destin Florida beach weddings to extravagant destination weddings on the SOLARIS yacht in Sandestin including sunset weddings on the sky deck followed by a reception with delicious food and fun music.
 
What type of experience do you envision for your wedding and reception venue? How do you want your guests to feel when they leave your wedding and reception?
 
These are the types of questions our wedding planners will discuss with you as we make your wedding dreams a reality. We customize every wedding experience, big or small, to be as unique as the couple themselves. Each detail of your wedding is tailored and made personal for the couple and their vision.

Destin Weddings on SOLARIS Yacht | Alex + Rob

Weddings on SOLARIS Yacht Venue | Alex + Rob

 
Congrats to Alex and Rob on their romantic Destin wedding and reception on the SOLARIS yacht. It was a beautiful September day in Sandestin as SOLARIS wedding planner Julie escorted the bride down the Baytowne Marina on their wedding golf cart.
 
Alex and her closest friends gathered on the yacht’s private bridal suite to put on the finishing touches before the big moment. Alex stunned in a strapless, tailored lace wedding dress while her bridesmaids donned rose gold long length dresses. The ladies carried beautiful white hydrangea bouquets – flowers that were carried out throughout the wedding.
 
The SOLARIS wedding planners helped execute Alex and Rob’s dream wedding and reception. Antique white lanterns lined the aisles of white chairs on the sky deck. The lanterns were continued into the indoor decks for the reception, coupled with candles and pictures of Alex and Rob.
 
Following her bridesmaids, Alex ascended the staircase to the open-air sky deck where her groom awaited for a majestic wedding on the water with sweeping views of Sandestin and Destin. After the ceremony and a fun photo session on the sky deck’s photo platform, everyone descending to the main deck for the reception as the SOLARIS cruised the waters near Sandestin.
 
At the reception, the seating arrangement was creatively written and displayed on a six-pane window. Guests indulged in savory steaks and fresh Gulf fish, freshly prepared on board by the SOLARIS chefs, while watching the first dances.
 
Alex was in for a great surprise at their cake cutting as Rob playfully smashed cake into her face. The fun continued as everyone danced to live entertainment by David Hall.
 
As the SOLARIS reached the Sandestin marina and everyone departed, Alex + Rob exited under a tunnel of sparklers held up by the guests. A perfect ending to the perfect wedding! Congrats again.
