Sandestin Wedding Venues | Bayview Room and Terrace Venue Tour

We’ve been working at Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort since we opened up our doors in the panhandle back in 2006. In fact, the very first Sandestin wedding venue we performed in on property was at the Bayview Room and Terrace. It has held a special space in our heart ever since. Over the last month few months, they did a major renovation to the space. We are giving you a little sneak peak venue tour with those updates. I think you’ll be excited to see this refresh.

Of all the Sandestin Wedding Venues, this a fantastic option if you want a non-beachy location. That view of the Choctawhatchee Bay is unlike any other. It makes a perfect ceremony backdrop or cocktail hour location.

The ceremony locations are really endless. They do have beach options, lawn options and many more on Sandestin’s property if the Bay view isn’t your ideal look. As for the room itself, you can comfortably fit about 75-85 people. Have a larger attendance count? No problem! The lobby area gives you the ability to put up a temporary draped wall to use as your dining location, thereby saving the main room for dancing, formalities and a photo booth. Another bonus of being indoors for the reception is that you can go beyond the 10PM noise ordinance that most outdoors properties have to abide by within the area. In the summer, when it takes longer for the sun to go down, this is a huge advantage.

We do recommend you and your guests stay on property at one of the condos or hotels. Getting in and out of Sandestin during season can take time with traffic (this goes for any venue on the Emerald Coast). By staying inside the Sandestin Beach and Golf Resort, you can easily get around the resort or you can take the free tram to multiple drop-off points.

Another bonus of this property is the close proximity to Baytowne Wharf. This gives you many rehearsal dinner and after-party options.
Be sure to reach out to them today for more information as this venue books out quickly.

WaterVue at Brooks Street Wedding | Venue Tour

Ever consider a WaterVue at Brooks Street wedding? If not, you should! We’ve done some of the leg work for you. Recently, we had a chance to stop by and take some video of the property and then worked a wedding there the following weekend. Enjoy our quick venue tour.

This Fort Walton Beach venue is one of our favorites. It is very versatile for ceremonies and receptions. You have indoor and outdoor options.

In a state where rain is always hit and miss, this is a stress-reliever in and of itself. You have an instant back-up plan! Additionally, the multiple spaces within the venue can give your event different looks between ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. We’ve done it just about every way imaginable including a recent trend of ceremony inside, cocktail hour outside (which we do a flip inside) and then reception back inside. The venue is rare in that it can feel full with 80 guests or you can expand it to accommodate up to 250-300 people.

The view of the gulf is unobstructed and crystal clear 90% of the time. Though they do have a preferred vendor list, you can bring in just about any vendor you want, which makes working with all budget sizes ideal. Indoor tables and chairs are available at the venue. They do require you to bring in a coordinator, which is a good idea anyway to ensure that things are running smoothly.

For a non-beachy wedding, a WaterVue at Brooks Street wedding is worth looking at. The owner, Mary, is one of those rare folks who treats you as family from the moment she meets you. She is very accommodating and looks to make your wedding day as stress-free and special as she can. From a vendor perspective, she sets us all up to make each event successful! You can’t put a price on that.
