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.

Congrats to Tony and Clarissa who will be getting married in Destin on the SOLARIS yacht this October. Our wedding planners were so excited to meet this couple and discuss their vision for their dream wedding in Destin Florida. October is simply one of the most beautiful times of year in Destin Florida, with cooler weather, less crowds, the migration of butterflies, less humidity and pristine sunsets – perfect for a SOLARIS yacht wedding!
Engagement Story: Tony and Clarissa met online 2 years ago and it’s been a whirlwind ever since. They’ve been here, there and everywhere. They love experiencing new things together and visiting family and friends. Tony and Clarissa can’t wait to start their life together as husband and wife!
About them: Clarissa loves music (singing in the church choir, listening to live music, play several instruments) and games and puzzles, primarily Sudoku; She’s very involved in her church and active in her sorority; Tony likes music (he plays guitar with the church band), likes sports (huge Miami Dolphins and Auburn Tigers fan), plays golf and shoots pool; they both love “old school” music; Clarissa is a huge Earth, Wind and Fire fan and Tony is probably an even bigger Johnnie Taylor fan.
Wedding Details: Tony and Clarissa are envisioning their wedding in Destin on the SOLARIS yacht to be beachy, elegant and innovative. Their colors are teal and silver, a perfect compliment to the open waters where they will be married. They chose the SOLARIS yacht because location is important to them and they want their guests to enjoy and remember the scenery and setting.
Congrats again. We are so honored to be part of your special day!
