Destin Fla yacht weddings on the SOLARIS yacht in Sandestin include sunset ceremonies on the sky deck and wedding planners. Voted as the best venue for Destin Florida weddings by readers of the Knot for 5 consecutive years, a SOLARIS wedding also includes experienced wedding planners, a breathtaking, open-air sky deck, flexible Destin wedding packages and award-winning cuisines. This is where amazing is unforgettable.
As newly engaged couples go through the wedding planning process, there is some stress within the ‘engaged bliss’ as numbers are crunched, “to-do” lists grow, deadlines approach and tough decisions have to be made. The mention of a destination wedding would make most grooms’ heads spin with circles of dollar signs but it can be more affordable than you think.
The SOLARIS yacht is ideally situated on the award-winning, all-inclusive Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, located in the nationally-recognized, sugar white beaches and emerald green waters of Destin Florida. Couples and their guests will relax in a Caribbean-esque experience minus the hefty price tag and hours of travel. The Sandestin resort features hundreds of accommodations for all budget levels, property-wide tram transportation, award-winning golf courses, dining, beach, entertainment and shopping options.
Most things that are considered splurges for weddings are included or of minimal cost on the SOLARIS yacht. All of our Destin Florida wedding packages include services from our full-time wedding planners who have years of experience planning weddings with anyone from a bride locally to one across the country. Our wedding planners not only keep you organized and offer creative ideas; they are also your local trusted source that can connect you to affordable outside vendors that are familiar with SOLARIS weddings and take the stress off your big day by coordinating everything on your wedding day.
Engaged couples consider everything from special lighting and ceremony decor to special lounge areas to take the wedding (and budget) to the next level. Everyone wants a special day that all will remember and that is experienced on all SOLARIS weddings in Destin. The 125′ SOLARIS yacht was specifically built with weddings in mind with three decks of indoor and outdoor decks that serve as both a weather-proof ceremony and reception site for up to 150 guests. The open-air sky deck features a bridal platform, specialty lighting and all packages include ceremony decor. Prior to their grand entrance, our brides relax in the serene, private bridal suite with special lighting, large mirrors, restroom and make-up table.
What’s more special for your guests than cruising the local waters? Guests will indulge in chef-prepared, coastal cuisines from fresh Gulf seafood to prime steaks while cruising into the sunset and dancing under the stars to live music.
Destin Weddings on the SOLARIS 2015 – Craig & Susan
Our wedding planner, Kristi, is already hard at work planning a May 2015 Destin wedding on the SOLARIS for Craig & Susan.
They both grew up in Fort Walton Beach, living in adjoining neighborhoods. Not only that but they attended the same Elementary, Junior High and High School, but didn’t know each other very well.
Craig and Susan reconnected by chance in May of 2012 over a poem about our elementary school that was posted on Facebook by a mutual friend. They will be getting married in Destin on the SOLARIS in May 2015 on the third anniversary of our first date.
Their wedding colors are orange and green but not because they are Miami Hurricane fans. Craig started calling Susan “Pebbles” when he saw that she took Flinestones vitamins and she thinks he LOOKS like Bamm Bamm. Could they be any cuter?
Congrats to the beautiful couple. We can’t wait to share in your special day with you!
Your Guide to a Worry-Free Experience for Your Wedding in Destin on the SOLARIS Yacht
Planning a destination wedding can be challenging and stressful if you don’t live in or near the destination. Making decisions and plans are hard when you aren’t physically there to see or research them.
Most of the planning can be done over the phone or via email and we’ll stay in constant contact throughout the entire process. Our wedding planner is your trusted, local resource for not only the SOLARIS but for experienced outside vendors we have worked with before. We can recommend anything from accommodations and transportation to photographers and bakers who have experience with SOLARIS weddings and who we are happy to coordinate the day of your wedding.
Here are few other things our brides can expect for their Destin wedding:
After selecting your wedding package and booking the date, you will meet with your wedding planner to discuss your style, your vision and brainstorm everything from themes and colors to linens, chair covers and decor. We’ll consult with you on our preferred vendors who are not only experienced with SOLARIS weddings but can accommodate any budget. Together we will plan your fine dining reception menu from fresh Gulf seafood to specialty drinks. You are not alone…we will stay in constant contact whether you live locally or across the country.
The Big Day:
It’s all hands on deck! Your wedding coordinator has been up early to execute every detail of your vision and coordinate with outside vendors. A member of our staff will meet you with a golf cart to escort you to the SOLARIS. Relax and get ready in your private bridal suite with large mirrors, special lighting, restroom and make-up table. Enjoy a champagne toast with your bridesmaids as we set out to sea for your dream wedding. Ascend the staircase to the open-air sky deck for your grand entrance to meet your groom at the bridal platform and say your vows.
The Celebration: Everyone stays together as you immediately cruise into the celebration as husband and wife in the same location you got married. Capture these serene moments with pictures in a majestic setting. Enjoy 3 decks of memorable fun including a romantic first dance and toasts under the twilight sky, live entertainment, delectable food and refreshing drinks. Your send-off is just as special with options including fireworks, dove or butterfly releases, bubbles, sparklers and even a decorated golf cart. Guests can unwind and enjoy the good times as they stay on-property at one of the resort’s many accommodations.
