“Best day ever! My wedding day on the Solaris was just perfect! The SOLARIS is the perfect venue in so many ways! It is easy to adjust to any size and budget. It is a one stop venue so you can have food, entertainment, decorations, flowers, etc. all handled for you by their staff. The bonus is you get to have your very own wedding coordinator to help you with every detail!! Julie had great ideas and helped make everything come together just as I imagined! It was a stress free experience and a beautiful venue!!”

“To say that everything was picture perfect, is an understatement. Every part of the wedding planning process was flawless and very well thought out. It was a breath of fresh air to truly let go of the planning and enjoy the entire experience stress free from the day that we first toured the yacht to the big “I Do” and dancing the night away with our family and friends. Julie’s planning and the entire crew’s hospitality was top notch, and everyone made sure it was the most amazing day of our lives and for that we are so grateful!”

“If anyone is on the fence about using SunQuest, please do yourself a favor and go ahead and book it! Your coordinator literally handles everything for you. Mostly everything is included with your contract, but if you want to add additional items, the coordinator can work any budget! Julie was AMAZING throughout the entire process. I also want to commend the catering staff for a job well done. The food was amazing and was plated beautifully. I was proud of the food and service at the wedding.”

“We got married on the top deck of the yacht at sunset with the reception immediately following downstairs – so easy. We also stayed at the resort where the SOLARIS is docked, Sandestin, which was very convenient. It was a unique experience for my guests, many of whom have never been to this area of Florida. I would absolutely recommend this venue.”
