Beach weddings are an especially wonderful way to celebrate your lifelong commitment for many reasons!
The Celebration Hall is the premier events venue in south Walton County specializing in coastal extravaganzas. We not only love the fact that they are more relaxed affairs that don’t require boatloads of cash in decor to dazzle the senses.
This is because of our vibrant setting full of luscious tropical foliage, fragrant blooms of jasmine, rose, honeysuckle, lavender, lily of the valley, hibiscus, magnolia, and orange blossoms, to name a few. The gentle gulf breezes play, dancing across our breathtaking, ultra white sand dunes, made up of countless sparkling quartz crystals that have been polished to soft, brilliant perfection over time, truly a symbolic atmosphere in which to give yourself over in holy matrimony.
Combine that stunning beauty with the soft light of one of the Emerald Coast’s Technicolor sunsets, sure to wow your guests and ideal for memorable photographs, and you have the makings of a wedding for the history books!
Another fantastic reason to fall in love with a Celebration Hall destination wedding in beautiful Santa Rosa Beach, Florida is because there are so many fun, exciting activities, unique only to the Emerald Coast, for you and your wedding guests to enjoy while visiting for your nuptials.
Aside from exploring our pristine, turquoise surf beaches or nearby Henderson or Eden State Parks, where guests can walk through lush, tropical gardens and marvel at a historically preserved plantation, there are also dolphin cruises, sport fishing charters, world class restaurants, art communities with tons of charming shops, snorkeling excursions, and prestigious, professionally designed golf courses.
If you are planning a wedding in the fall, our personal favorite here at Celebration because of the cooler weather and uncrowded beaches, then you will be delighted to know that autumn on the Emerald Coast is a time for festivals and fairs, including the famous Mullet Festival in mid-October.
Our Boggy Bayou Mullet Festival is an annual event that is a time honored tradition around these parts that has grown into a national and international favorite.
All the fun takes place across the Bay in Niceville. Yes, Niceville is a real place and the people there are very nice. Probably the nicest in the south.
The annual Festival of the Fish, always promises a great time for every member of your family, with live entertainment featuring some of the most highly acclaimed musical groups(Billy Ray Cyrus’s achy breaky heart nearly broke in two when he had to say goodbye to our awesome audience), the highest quality fine art, one of a kind jewelry vendors, homemade-crafts, and a staggering array of food concessions serving a wide variety of tasty vittles and local delicacies, like Mullet.
Most likely not a fish your guests have ever tried, unless they are from the south, Mullet has delicious, white flaky flesh with a very clean, mild flavor because of their vegetarian diet, as well as the clean, sweetwater bayous these fish call home.
Those in your party who love the idea of sustainable fishing will also appreciate a plate of this tasty local fish because they are only able to be caught using cast nets, due to the diet of this species which consists of plant material only, with maybe the occasional bug or two.
Typically served breaded and fried, Mullet can either be eaten as fillets or whole, and around these parts it’s considered a travesty to ruin the meal with tartar sauce, instead the preferred condiment is some homemade hot sauce(wedding favors?) with a frosty mason jar of sweet ice tea to wash it down. So not only will your family and guests be able to partake in all the amazing revelry and awesome live entertainment, but they can also indulge in a meal of this humble fish which that has played such an important role in both the local economy and in the general nutrition of our culture here on the Emerald Coast.
Your family and friends will have a great time, and not only is it a joyous occasion, but everyone is also on vacation! For more fresh ideas for your wedding, stop in to see the professionals at Celebration Hall, located on a beautiful stretch of Scenic Hwy 30-A in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida.
