A “Grand” Sandestin Wedding

Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort is known for it’s prestige, unmatched amenities, and abounding options for beautiful venues. One particular venue that offers gulf views and the luxury of a garden setting, is the Grand Lawn. Only steps away from the Choctawhatchee Bay, and located just behind the beautiful Grand Sandestin lies a pristine garden venue, which is alluring for both it’s beauty and location.

For those couples looking to have a resort style destination wedding without the sand, this is the perfect venue! We’ve hosted many beautiful ceremonies on the Grand Lawn, along with receptions, and cocktail events. With this venue, and Sandestin’s professional staff, couples can create whatever they desire.

We’ve added some photo’s from recent weddings on the Grand Lawn. We hope they inspire your dream wedding!

Design It Your Way!

Your wedding is the perfect time to showcase your unique style, and your design will speak clearly of who you are. If you are a very outgoing person, then you will likely choose a bold design, and if you are a traditional person, you will in the same way choose a more traditional design. Whatever your personality and taste may be, choose a design that best suites you. I have posted some samples of beautiful designs that may help you in your decision making process.

Happy Planning! Kelli, Sandestin Weddings
