Destin Weddings on the Florida Beach
Destin is in the middle of Florida’s panhandle and is located in Okaloosa County. Destin is also known as the “Emerald Rivera”. Destin has pristine white sandy beaches along with emerald green waters. Destin is a great location for your destination beach wedding. The sugar white sand is actually made of Appalachian quartz that came from the mountains to the coast. Destin is named after Captain Leonard Destin. It calls itself “The World’s Luckiest Fishing Village”. The closest airport to Destin beaches is the Northwest Florida Regional Airport.
