Destin Weddings 2016 – Diane and Kevin

We’re ending the year with another amazing Destin destination wedding on the SOLARIS Yacht venue in Sandestin. Our wedding planners were thrilled to meet Diane and Kevin and help them plan their dream wedding on the SOLARIS yacht right before Christmas.
 
Here’s their touching story of how they met and their engagement as told by Diane:
 
We met using Match.com. I knew by his pictures because he had a beard, he was tall/dark/handsome, he had a brown dog, and he loved the outdoors, it definitely meant I needed to meet him.
 
Our first date was at the Bluegill Restaurant on the Causeway, and he wore a white button down shirt and blue jeans. I wore a blue floral sundress that he told me he really liked. The date went well where we became acquainted, and since I told him my first day of orientation at my new job was the next day, he said he’d get me home early.
 
After that, we had a second date in downtown Fairhope, where we stayed out late and met a bunch of his friends who also happened to be out and about. It then started with dinners at his house, where he liked to cook for me fish he had caught and vegetables he had grown. It progressed quickly to spending every evening together, where we came to the realization that we were more alike than we could have ever thought.
 
It quickly dawned on me that this was who I had needed all along and that I was in love.
We have enjoyed hunting, fishing, gardening, traveling, and spending even the most mundane of days together. We are proud that together we have added fruiting trees to our yard and have nurtured a garden (pictured below) inspired by his late Grand Daddy.
 
In October after work one day, Kevin took me through our recently turned over garden that we had spent some of that weekend working on, telling me that we do such a great job working as partners. After walking slowly through the garden for some time admiring our hard work by flashlight, he took me between the house and garden and faced me. He told me how much he loves me and how happy he is. He told me that we make good partners and I agreed.
 
He continued by saying that much like a good marriage, working in the garden requires weeding, hard work, and working together. He then began to kneel, getting down on his knee, held my hands, and asked “…I was wondering, will you be my partner forever?”
 
Congrats again to Kevin and Diane – we can’t wait for the BIG day to celebrate your love for each other.

Destin Weddings on the SOLARIS Yacht Sandestin – Celebrating Seth & Rachel
 
Congratulations to Seth and Rachel on their Florida destination wedding on the SOLARIS yacht venue with a fun group of friends and family. The day began at sunrise with Destin beach wedding pictures, where some of Rachel’s bridesmaids experienced the Gulf of Mexico for the first time.
 
As Rachel got ready with her bridesmaids on-board the yacht’s private bridal suite, the SOLARIS cruised out into the open waters on an absolutely beautiful day for a Destin wedding.

 

Rachel stunned in a strapless, full length, mermaid-style beaded wedding gown while her bridesmaids wore full length, strapless navy blue dresses. Rachel’s bouquet featured an eclectic mix of vibrant yellow sunflowers, roses and navy blue accents.

 

Seth and Rachel met on the open air sky deck of the SOLARIS, with the bridal arch dawned in the same mix of flowers. Instead of a unity candle, they took part in a Blending of the Sands ceremony, a perfect complement to the nautical / beach theme for their wedding. Seth and Rachel exchanged vows and sealed it with a kiss on the sky deck as the SOLARIS sailed out into the sunset.

 

After wedding pictures, they went right into celebrating with a fun reception of food and music on the water. Guests indulged in chef-prepared meals and guests danced to live music. To end the night, Seth and Rachel exited under a tunnel of sparklers from guests.

 

Our Destin wedding planners were thrilled to partner with Destin wedding photographer,
Mari Darr-Welch who captured each moment perfectly.

 

Congrats again to Seth and Rachel on their amazing wedding!
