    Wedding of a Lifetime

    My husband and I had the wedding of a Lifetime! Everything exceeded our wildest dreams. The weather was perfect, the sands were soo white and soft, the wind was just right! I'm still smiling from our blissful moment. If anyone ever asks me about having their wedding in Destin, Henderson will be my immediate response. The beach goers were respectful and we were allotted our own private space!

    Great Beach Location

    While we didn’t boom our venue directly with the park, our planner highly recommended them! The park was so great at letting everyone in for the rehearsal and ceremony and providing great direction. The staff at the gate were so friendly!! The staff also went above and beyond ensuring that our ceremony space was perfect. They made sure to move everyone out of the area enough to where we felt like we had our own private area! Having a beach ceremony can feel like you always have people around, but that isn’t the case with this location. We super appreciated all the work they put into to making our wedding great!

    Henderson Beach State Park's reply:

    I am so glad we did meet your expectations. July is such a busy month and I always worry about so many regular park guests on both sides of the wedding area. Thank you so much for taking the time to let other clients know what you thought of our park and services. Anne Marie
