Destin Wedding Venues
Florida Wedding Venues on the Beach
Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa presents more than 40,000 square feet indoors and 20,000 square feet of versatile outdoor Gulf-view deck space. Our variety of beaches, decks and ballrooms accommodate any size guest list, making the resort a sought-after choice among Destin wedding locations.
Beach Wedding Ceremonies
With sand and surf as alluring as ours, we naturally specialize in transforming our beach into your wedding venue. Of course, some of our couples prefer the beach as a backdrop – or as a complement to our indoor spaces. Your Hilton Sandestin Beach Wedding Coordinator will walk you through all of our wedding venues – and your customizable options.
For example, you may have noticed in our photo gallery how we add arbors, fresh flowers and seating to define beach wedding ceremonies. But we also host unforgettable welcome parties, rehearsal dinners and receptions on our fabulous decks, and everything from bonfires to tented affairs in the sand!
Maybe you’re dreaming of a seamless scene change (imagine your sandy-footed ceremony flowing onto one of our gracious decks). Whether you choose The Sunset Deck (5,000 square feet for up to 600 guests), the Sunrise Deck (4,000 square feet accommodates 240 with banquet set up, and up to 325 reception style) or Barefoot’s Deck (2,700 square feet for up to 225 guests), the views are unparalleled – and the beach is never far (the Sunrise and Barefoot’s, in particular, offer immediate access). All decks at the Hilton Sandestin Beach may be configured for ceremonies and other wedding celebration events.
Wedding Reception Venues
Our indoor ballrooms make elegant venues for your wedding reception. Our brand-new Coastal Ballroom (7,500 square feet) has 18-foot ceilings suitable for more elaborate events and decorations, as well as a separate foyer perfect for guests to enjoy the cocktail hour. The chandeliers in the Emerald Ballroom (9,500 square feet for up to 1,200 guests) set events aglow. The Coral Ballroom (5,600 square feet) invites couples to go over the top or understated – its layout can be configured for guest lists from 25 to 700.
Our special event rooms, including the Sandpiper (1,730 square feet for up to 350 people) sit secluded within the resort for intimate celebrations. Our hospitality suites can accommodate exclusive gatherings before or after the wedding ceremony – each suite measures 810 square feet and features a wet bar, casual seating and private bathroom.
Our hospitality suites are very popular for brides seeking a private retreat to get ready before the ceremony. Used as a “Ready Room,” bride and her bridesmaids can gather, enjoy a snack, and share the thrill of the final preparations in the hours leading up to the ceremony.
For the ultimate in exclusivity, we’ll leave you with a final suggestion: A rehearsal dinner, private or small-group dining experience at Seagar’s Prime Steaks & Seafood. The resort’s signature restaurant – and the only Destin-area restaurant to receive a AAA Four-Diamond rating – makes a stunning impression with its menu (featuring USDA prime beef, fresh seafood and more), a 600-label wine list (Wine Spectator commends it) and a tableau of cool colors against rich woods.
