SunQuest Cruises SOLARIS is pleased to announce its selection as a 2017 “Best of Wedding and Reception Venue” winner, a special section featured on The Knot’s Web site. Winners represent the top one percent of reviews from recently married couples. This is the eighth consecutive year SunQuest Cruises SOLARIS has been voted the winner of The Knot “Best of Weddings” for its yacht venue. In addition, the SOLARIS was inducted into The Knot Best of Weddings Hall of Fame a few years ago.
 
“This award is significant to us because it’s a direct result of reviews from our recent brides and grooms,” stated James Murray, General Manager for SOLARIS. “We take great pride in providing our couples with the most valuable, stress-free and memorable wedding experience.”
 
The 2017 “Best of Weddings” award recipients represent the best- and most-rated wedding professionals as reviewed by real couples, their families and wedding guests on The Knot. This year, a select group of 5,500 local wedding professionals – representing two percent of Knot wedding professionals – received the distinguished accolade.
 
As the area’s only dining and entertainment yacht, SunQuest Cruises SOLARIS was built specifically with Destin weddings in mind. All Destin wedding packages include a full-time wedding planner who has worked with couples from across the country from planning to the execution. The open-air, sky deck features a bridal platform where couples can say their vows in a private, majestic setting while cruising into the sunset and enjoying unlimited views. Brides enjoy the private bridal suite as a secluded, serene space to enjoy with friends and family before the big moment. The 125 foot yacht also includes three decks of indoor and outdoor spaces, offering a weather-proof venue.
 
One SOLARIS bride wrote: “I chose the Solaris yacht for my Ceremony and Reception venue in Destin and it was absolutely beautiful. The whole process was so easy and stress free thanks to their wedding planner Kristi, she communicated with me through email and phone the entire year before the big day and met with me the week of to go over last minute details. The Solaris staff made everything look so effortless and everything came out perfect!”
 
The SOLARIS’ ideal location at the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort provides couples with a convenient, all-inclusive experience for them and their guests that includes a variety of accommodation, transportation and entertainment options in one venue.
 
“Planning a destination wedding can be stressful if you don’t live near the location,” stated Kristi Adkinson, SOLARIS wedding planner. “We go above and beyond to make sure every wish and need is met by staying in constant contact and serving as a trusted, local resource our couples can count on.”

Destin Weddings Talk from Planners | Emergency Kit

After 10 years of planning Destin weddings, our wedding planners know that there will be last minute, not-so-planned moments on the big day. Kristi and her staff will have all hands on deck all day on your wedding day to coordinate outside vendors, decorate and assist in making your day perfect.
 
While we hope everything on your day is perfect, it’s better to be prepared for the before, during and after of the big day. Our Destin wedding planners will ensure that the bride and her bridal party on comfortable and prepared on the yacht’s private bridal suite.

We always recommend that the maid of honor or the mom of the bride pack a “wedding day emergency kit” to avoid any last minute panics. Some things to include in the kit include bobby pins, q-tips, hair spray, mints, deodorant, curling iron, safety pins, small sewing kit, Tide pen, mouth wash, toothbrush, mints, lotion, back up lipstick / touch up make up.
 
Other things no bride should go without include aspirin, band aids, white chalk to cover any smudges on your dress), eye drops, extra panty hose, clear nail polish, hem tape and scotch tape. It also couldn’t hurt to have some snacks (granola bars, etc) on hand to make sure everyone is powered up before the big moment.
