“Their wedding planner went above and way beyond all of our expectations. She did more than she had too and was more than accommodating with everything. Julie’s number one concern was our happiness and satisfaction with the event. We couldn’t have been more pleased with everything. if we could give her 100 stars we would. Solaris Cruises is definitely the #1 choice for weddings in Florida. We would recommend them to anyone.”
“I can’t say enough about this yacht and its amazing staff. Their wedding planner was so easy to work with providing suggestions and budget friendly options to make our big day spectacular yet affordable. She answered every question I had along the way, no matter how trivial. Julie, I can’t thank you enough for the job well done! Our family and friends are still talking about our wedding, and I’m sure they will be for a long time coming! The chef here was amazing! Everything that I tasted was amazing, and all of our guests say the same thing! They were attentive and maintained an open line of communication with me from day one. I would suggest the Solaris for any type of event, big or small! Thank you to all of the staff members that made our wedding perfect!!”
“I had the most amazing, fairytale wedding EVER! Julie was ABSOLUTELY TERRIFIC. She was fun, flexible, detailed, she has a great eye and was super accommodating. As I am from Atlanta and this was a destination wedding, she was available for regular conference calls and welcomed on site planning sessions but most importantly, she was able to bring everything together for a magical day. Our guests marveled at how beautiful and well organized our wedding/reception was. We had one of the most memorable experiences of our lives.”
What You Can Expect for your Destin Wedding
Planning Your Dream Day
Our wedding planners will help you find the right Destin wedding package that fits your budget. We are extremely flexible in personalizing your experience, including planning a Destin Beach Wedding followed by a yacht reception. We can also assist with all your décor, rentals, catering and flower needs so you’re working with one company for all your needs.
After booking your SOLARIS wedding, you will meet with your experienced wedding planner. Let’s discuss your style, your vision and brainstorm everything from themes and colors to linens and décor. We’ll consult with you on our preferred vendors who are familiar with the SOLARIS and can accommodate any budget for photography, entertainment, accommodations and more.
We have a dedicated catering team for all weddings. Together, we will plan your reception menu from fresh Gulf seafood to specialty drinks from our full-service bar. Our executive chef and his staff create “art of the palette” with upscale, coastal-culinary inspired wedding menus. Customized menus can include formal seated dinner options to hors d’oeuvres and chef stations.
We will stay in constant contact to answer your questions and ensure smooth sailing for your wedding day
Making Your Dreams a Reality
It’s all hands on deck! Your wedding planner 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 love at the bridal platform. A vibrant sunset awaits you, serving as a panoramic backdrop in harmony with sparkling waters, playful dolphins and coastal breezes. Our captain will officiate your wedding as you say “I Do” out at sea.
After sealing your love with a kiss, take breathtaking sunset pictures with family and friends on the sky deck photo platform.
Celebrating Your Love
The stress-free experience continues as everyone stays together and you immediately cruise into the celebration as husband and wife in the same location you got married. While you take pictures, guests can explore the yacht and enjoy the sunset views, hors d’oeuvres and drinks from the full-service bar.
The elegant indoor dining spaces, with panoramic windows throughout, will be decorated to your specifications, including linens, plate ware, centerpieces / flowers, specialty lighting, accent walls or anything else you can imagine. Everyone will enjoy 3 decks of memorable fun including a romantic first dance and toasts under the stars on the sky deck and live music which can be heard from all three decks. Your guests will indulge in fine dining, coastal delights freshly prepared on board by our chefs.
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.
