SANTA ROSA BEACH— Location is everything when it comes to planning the perfect wedding. Whether you prefer an intimate ceremony or an extravagant affair, a great venue can turn your fairytale wedding into a reality.

“Choosing the right venue is the first big decision when planning a wedding,” said Erin Shoults, general manager at the Destin Bay House. “The venue represents your style and reflects the theme of your wedding.”

The Destin Bay House and Weddings at Gulf Place are both local venues that serve Emerald Coast brides.

Christina Gillon, wedding and event planner at Weddings at Gulf Place, said her venue delivers luxury as well as convenience.

“It’s wonderful because guests can just come and park their cars at any of the Gulf Place venues,” Gillon said. “We offer condominiums, townhouses, and an on-site rental company. Everything is right there. It’s a true vacation spot.”

At Weddings at Gulf Place clients can choose from a wide variety of wedding venues for their budget and style. Venues include a luxury, three-floor bridal suite, community and park pools, three private beaches, the Amphitheater Event Green and Restaurant Fire.

Gillon also is the founder of Fete Weddings and Events, a full-service wedding planning company that specializes in coordinating weddings along Scenic Highway 30-A.
