SOLARIS Wins 2017 Wedding Venue Awards by Knot and WeddingWire

SunQuest Cruises Wins 2017 Knot & WeddingWire Awards for Yacht Wedding Venue in Destin
 
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. Award-winning vendors are distinguished for the quality, quantity, consistency and timeliness of the reviews they have received from their past clients.
 
“The Couples’ Choice Awards’ ninth year features one of the most impressive groups of dedicated and acclaimed wedding professionals yet,” said Timothy Chi, CEO, WeddingWire. “It is our honor to work with high-caliber merchants, such as SunQuest Cruises, who not only make a couple’s big day possible, but also contribute to the more than 2.5 million U.S. reviews represented on WeddingWire. We congratulate all of this year’s winners on their achievements.”
 
As the only dining and entertainment yacht in Northwest Florida, the SOLARIS yacht cruises year-round from the all-inclusive Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort for weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners and other bridal events for up to 150 people. The 125-foot yacht venue was specifically built with weddings in mind, boasting three indoor and outdoor decks including an open air, sky deck for sunset ceremonies on the open waters, a private bridal suite and a full-service bar. All Destin wedding packages include the services of a full-time, award-winning wedding planner as well as special event menus prepared on board the yacht’s galley by executive chefs.

Whether it’s a large destination wedding or an intimate wedding, couples are searching for unique experiences for them and their guests. The Destin and Sandestin areas are popular locations for destination weddings because of the emerald green waters, sugar white beaches and plenty of activities for guests.

There’s nothing more unforgettable than hosting a Destin wedding on the SOLARIS yacht as it cruises the open waters at sunset. The natural beauty of Destin and Sandestin are showcased in a unique setting as the SOLARIS yacht offers absolute privacy and unobstructed views of the sunset. Plus your guests can stay on property at the all-inclusive Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort.

Our planners are with you from start to finish.
 
The SOLARIS venue itself is convenient for weddings and receptions for many reasons. The SOLARIS yacht was built with weddings in mind, with a private bridal suite on board as well as a full-service bar, bridal platform on the sky deck for sunset ceremonies and photo platform for stunning pictures. Your reception starts immediately after your wedding at the same venue, with three decks of indoor and outdoor spaces for up to 150 people.
