Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort

Sandestin Beach Club Wedding | Reagan & Robin

There’s a little gem on the Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort called the Sandestin Beach Club, and A Sandestin Beach Club Wedding is one of the best ways to tie the knot on the Emerald Coast. It’s a members only club, however, in the Fall/Winter, it can be used for weddings and private events. This is now one of our favorite spots. It has an intimate feel despite the massive property size. For Reagan and Robin’s wedding this past weekend, they had a guest count of about 100 people. The ceremony took place on the beach and the cocktail hour and reception was held on the pool deck. Like clockwork, the weather turned from Summer to Fall the day prior to their wedding so the humidity was dialed back considerably from September’s heatwave.

For this venue, it’s ideal to have two entertainers. Brian (himself a DJ) assisted Josh, allowing him to get out in the crowd for announcements and make the toasts flow a little easier instead of having to run back to the booth to add music. Once the dancing kicked off, the crowd was ready to party! Josh had them dancing to just about everything he played.

Sandestin Bayview Room: What an Awesome Venue!

I refer to it as one of our second homes – the Sandestin Bayview Room and Terrace is one of the most modular wedding venues on the Emerald Coast and we seem to have an event here just about every weekend. The flexibility that the space offers came in handy this weekend. If you haven’t checked out our venue tours at this property, it may be worth a look. We have Part 1 and Part 2. Hurricane Hermine was looming but never seriously threatened our event. The humidity, however, was intense and with rain slated for later in the evening, Courtney made the final call to move the reception indoors. We still had the ceremony outside and the cocktails were an indoor/outdoor combo. In the Bayview room, we had the entire room set for dancing. The dinner was held in the lobby entry way which worked perfectly for the guest count on hand..

Destination Weddings in Sandestin Florida. What more could a Wedding DJ want?

This crowd may qualify as one of my best of the year. They were ready to dance and had the entire room (minus the cupcakes) allotted for just that. With zero formalities after dinner (no cake cut, bouquet or garter), we got into the dancing very quickly. Being from Kentucky and a large contingent from St. Louis, Courtney and Chris brought two great destination crowds together. Folks from those parts of the country love to have a good time and are really nice people to boot. 90s and 2000s pop, hip hop and R&B went over really well and, of course, with so many being from St. Louis, there were more than a few Nelly tracks played. I even get a chance to show them The Wobble.

The floor was so packed that we went an extra 30 minutes of overtime. Best wishes to Courtney and Chris! Thanks for including us.

A Perfect day for getting married in Sandestin FL | Art & Brittany’s Wedding

It was a perfect day for getting married in Sandestin, FL

It was a perfect day for getting married in Sandestin, FL! As guests started arriving at the Bayview Room and Terrace for cocktail hour, you could see them tapping their feet as they listened to the smooth jams of one our live musicians, Wes Heath, on the guitar and vocals. Everyone was smiling and talking about the beautiful ceremony they had just witnessed.

Once everyone made their way inside for the reception, I knew we had an amazing crowd! They were full of energy which is a key ingredient for an epic party! After introducing myself as the Emcee and my partner in crime for the evening, Dan Davis, as the DJ, we kicked into “Love Never Felt So Good” by Michael Jackson for the bridal party introduction. Each VIP bridal party member danced their way inside the reception hall. After the last of the bridal party made their way in, we shut the doors and I got the crowd ready for our bride and groom. The anticipation was at the apex when those doors finally swung open. The crowd exploded with a deafening roar of cheers for the new Mr. and Mrs. Becker!

The night went flawlessly! People were laughing, dancing and having an all-around good time! Earlier at the ceremony, the grandmother sustained a minor injury and had to go to the hospital. Both her and her husband weren’t able to make the reception early on. After getting word from our coordinator that they would be able to make an appearance later on, I had her cue me when they arrived. I called everyone out to the dance floor with Art and Brittany standing at the front so when the front doors swung open and I announced them in, they went crazy yet again! It gave the party a second wind. Brittany, our bride, got to dance with her Grandfather to “Fly Me to The Moon” by Frank Sinatra. As the music played, you could see a huge smile on the grandmother’s face as she witnessed her first granddaughter dancing with her husband.

As for the dancing, it didn’t take hardly any time to get everyone up and partying. With New Yorkers in the house, we hit them with “Juicy” by Notorious B.I.G. and, of course, they knew all the words. For all the Chicagoans (where the bride and groom live), we dropped “Homecoming” by Kanye West and everyone went nuts. We finished the night with “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey and ended on a high note.

Wedding Djs

We worked with some talented vendors as well to pull off this incredible wedding. Kelli Deary coordinated the event for Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. Patty Bilbo from It’s A Perfect Day provided all the florals and decor. Heidi from Bake My Day made the cake. Last but certainly not least, Sarah Lyn Photography was on hand to capture the day in photos.

This was definitely one of those weddings where I realized I have the greatest job in the world.  I love to DJ weddings and play a part in a couple’s special day! Thanks for having us Art and Brittany! We wish you both the best!

Venue Spotlight: Bayview Room at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort – Sandestin, FL

Every now and then, we like to take a moment and put the focus on a particular venue. This week we wanted to introduce you to the Bayview Room at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort in Sandestin, FL. It’s located near the Linkside Conference Center within the Resort.

One of the first things about the Bayview Room that you will appreciate is the privacy aspect. It’s not located in the touristy Baytowne section of the resort. The Linkside section is very secluded. It will feel like you have the whole place to yourself which is nice when having a private wedding or corporate function.

It’s really important that when you and your guests enter the security gate at the resort that you ask them to direct you to the Linkside Conference Center rather than saying the Bayview Room. The security guards sometimes get that confused and will send you around to Baytowne and you’ll have a 10-15 minute detour until you get yourself back to where you need to be.

The room is perfect for a guest count of 60-75 people. You could technically squeeze in around 100 if it was dinning only and you didn’t use a dance floor.

To us, the biggest selling point is the ability to have the outside cocktail hour and ceremony location on the terrace adjacent to the reception room. The view of the Choctawhatchee bay is quite serene and peaceful. This is ideal for those that want a beautiful view but not necessarily be at the beach or in sand.  Speaking of the outside terrace, there is power available if you wanted to hire a musician to play for the wedding ceremony and/or cocktail hour.  Additionally, it’s partially covered so a cocktail hour could still occur even if there is rain present.  Speaking of rain, they have plenty of “plan B” rain options should it happen.  A lot of venue spaces can’t offer that!

Another advantage to booking the Bayview Room is you have access Sandestin Conference Services. They can do an excellent job of uplighting the room with any color to match the décor you’ve chosen for your event and they can even do a customized gobo/monogram light on the dance floor in addition to providing many other a/v services.

We put together a tour of the venue on video. With it being a smaller room, there aren’t that many configurations that can be done so this a great sampling to observe on a more visual level. It’s one of our favorite event venue spaces so we hope you’ll consider it for your event!
