    Did you get married on the beaches of South Walton? If so, please tell us about your experience in this 30A Wedding Venues forum. Or, if you're in the process of planning a 30A wedding please share ideas here as well. The goal is to help guide people in terms of choosing the 30A wedding venue that best fits their taste and budget.

    Let me start by disclosing that my wife and I did not get married on 30A. We got hitched up in the great state of Wisconsin. It was a great party but I don't want to pretend I have actual experience on this topic. My experience with 30A wedding venues is based solely on what I've observed since living here the past 5 years.

    In terms of the east end of 30A, it appears that Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach and Inlet Beach are extremely popular choices. Also, Seaside, WaterColor and Grayton Beach seem to be popular as well.

    Anyway, please feel free to share your thoughts on the best 30A wedding venues.

    Highlands House Bed & Breakfast is a great place to get married. I have seen plenty of people get married their and their private walk to the beach/garden and setting all together is completely gorgeous. Very quaint and a great place for small to medium sized weddings. They have wonderful rooms for the bride to get ready in as well. Definitely check them out if you are thinking of getting married. Plus their food is gourmet and delicious! So catering with them is easy and amazing.

    I didn't get married on the beaches of South Walton but being in the property management industry in Rosemary beach I get to see a lot of weddings set up throughout Rosemary Beach! My favorites to see are the beautiful ceremonies and receptions that take place on the Eastern Green. There is nothing more beautiful then big, bouquets of gorgeous flowers on linen clothed tables with the Gulf as the back drop. I also stop dead in my tracks with the amazing flower arches over the Town Hall...so charming!

    Aw I haven't gotten to see a wedding on the Eastern Green. Maybe I will be lucky and someday soon I will! Thanks for the share.

    Celebration Hall is another good one. It's apparently a newer venue. It's quaint but absolutely stunning. Would be perfect for a small to medium sized wedding and/or reception. I put the details below that I found.

    Location: 61 Topsail Village Drive, Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459

    Categories: Venues, Rehearsal Dinner Locations

    Event Types: Anniversaries, Baby Showers, Bar / Bat Mitzvahs, Birthdays, Bridal Showers, Christenings, Corporate Events, Debutante Balls, Engagement Parties, Graduations, Holiday Parties, Memorials, Proms

    We are a new event/wedding venue on scenic 30a, just minutes from the beach should you prefer to have your ceremony there and then come back to the Hall for reception. . The Hall is a multipurpose venue that can be used for reception, rehearsal dinner, ceremony, seminars, anniversary parties and concerts. We also have large lawn areas for tents or larger events. The Hall features a cathedral like feel with 28 foot high ceilings, 2 magnificent chandeliers, over looking balcony, large wood beams that are lit, and separate waiting areas for bride and groom,The area outside is magical at night with over 50 lit trees and other sidewalk lights. We also offer accommodations at 30a suites, a romantic boutique hotel right across the street from the venue. We have 2, 3 and 4 bedroom villas which are perfect for families or for the bride and bridesmaids to get ready. Lots of room featuring large mirrors and spacious living quarters.

    No problem! It looks amazing! By the way the highlands house which I adored for weddings seems to have foreclosed :( So I suppose that's a not a good venue anymore. How sad! It was beautiful, quaint and gorgeous. It literally just went out of business. I hope someone buys it and turns it into an amazing venue again.
