Attentive team provides customized ‘Big Day’ experiences
More than two million couples are expected to tie the knot this year, the highest number of weddings to take place since 1984. If you are ready to walk down the aisle, SunQuest Beach Weddings is prepared for you with a friendly staff eager to provide the customized wedding experience of your dreams.
“After a difficult couple of years in the wedding industry, couples are ready to celebrate by spending time with their family and friends,” said Kristi Summerlin, who is responsible for marketing and sales at SunQuest Beach Weddings. “The world has been stressful, and our team is here to make the planning process stress-free.”
SunQuest’s variety of services and staff come together to offer full-service wedding planning and customized packages that take the hassle out of your big day.
Couples are paired with a dedicated planner who is their primary point of contact. This ensures the couple only has to communicate their wishes and wants to one person who then coordinates all of the magical details within their budget.
SunQuest offers several coastal venue options from a spot on the beach to beach houses and, most popular, the SOLARIS yacht. Once you have picked your ceremony and reception spaces, it’s time to talk florals, rentals, catering, bartending, photography and more. SunQuest has on-staff vendors that can handle it all.
The only vendor not included is cakes, but the SunQuest chef can concoct all other forms of sweet treats alongside a curated menu that caters to your theme whether it be food stations or a sit-down, five course meal.
It’s a digital age, and about 90 percent of SunQuest couples are planning a destination wedding. That’s why SunQuest has made planning your wedding from afar easier than ever using its online portal. Gone are the days of driving across town or across the country to make decisions.
To get things started online, SunQuest provides couples with a questionnaire, and once you’re all set up, you can submit photo inspirations, receive digital mock-ups and mood boards from your planner and envision even the smallest details.
This digital process works perfectly for current trends like elaborate tablescapes and floral designs. You and your planner can share ideas for arbors, archways, photo booths, hanging installations and more. You can even check out mock-ups of the glassware, plates, silverware and décor that will line the tables.
Large weddings and grand decorations are certainly making a comeback this year, but Summerlin believes that intimate ceremonies and a focus on the small details are here to stay. After all, even small weddings can have grand moments, whether that be decor, florals or investing in the guest experience.
Like large weddings, weekday ceremonies are having a moment. Between the pandemic and busy weekend schedules, a weekday wedding is the way to go for many couples today.
Mimi Schanaman, a SunQuest bride, enthusiastically endorsed the idea of a ceremony on a yacht on a Monday.
Schanaman was married on a beautiful October day aboard the SOLARIS yacht. The couple said their vows under a floral arch of pinks, yellows and oranges — a bright palate that glowed against the golden hour ceremony.
The team at SunQuest makes planning easy and efficient while exceeding expectations. SunQuest’s services allow you to plan and host all events from the rehearsal dinner to the bridal brunch to the honeymoon, via one team.
