Best Locations for a Destin Beach Wedding

Destin beaches are popular, and for many reasons, but mainly because they are beautiful. That’s all the more reason to have a Destin Beach Wedding. However, the location in which the wedding is setup and hosted is very important.

Not all of Destin’s beach access points are available for beach weddings. However, a few are, and those locations are where we like to setup our Destin Beach Wedding Packages.


James Lee Beach – 3510 Scenic Hwy 98, Destin, FL 32541

Coming in at the top of our list for popular wedding locations on the beach in Destin is James Lee Beach Park.

Currently, this is a location that does require an Okaloosa County Beach Wedding Permit, and all of our Pre-designed Beach Wedding Packages can be setup on site.

This location can be a bit crowded mid-day, therefore an evening (sunset) wedding is best. This Destin beach wedding location books fast and far in advance.


Henderson Beach State Park – 17000 Emerald Coast Pkwy, Destin, FL 32541

Henderson Beach State Park is by far is a great spot for Destin Beach Weddings. However, as with most great things in life, there is a cost. A fairly steep one, to be exact.

The park charges for the number of guests attending the wedding on the beach. Therefore, the price starts at $250.00 and can reach close to 1k. Thus, it is not a popular location for couples who are wanting to save some money on their Destin Florida Beach Wedding Package.

Certainly, the most expensive place for a beach wedding in Destin.

Nevertheless, it is beautiful and if your budget can afford it, we recommend this place!


June White Decker Park – Restaurant Rd, Destin, FL 32541

This location is best for 20 or less guests in attendance. However, in reality, we only suggest 5-10 guests.

Therefore, the Heart in the Sand or the Intimate Bliss Destin Beach Wedding Packages are best for this spot.
