Making dreams into reality every day.

AACWP Member Jets to Destin, Florida!

We are so excited when our AACWP members grow in their careers!



Congratulations to AACWP member Kristi Rustin, who in September journeyed across the country to Destin, Florida to become Private Events Director at Vue on 30a at Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club. "It has been a dream of mine for over 8 years to come to the Destin area, to plan coastal weddings and live this life in paradise," says Kristi, "The most wonderful surprise I have experienced so far (besides the spectacular water and white sand beach) is the people I work with. They have been so sweet and welcoming, and they are excited to have me here!"

The Vue on 30a, located directly on pristine white sand, offers a spectacular wedding location for couples seeking a destination celebration with less hassle! No passport is needed to access this beautiful beach, and there are 3 public airports nearby (Fort Walton Beach Airport, Pensacola and Panama City Beach). For those who prefer a touch of luxury, chartered flights land at nearby Destin Executive Airport.

Voted “Best Waterfront Dining” by Florida Travel + Life Magazine and “Best Place to Watch a Sunset” by Emerald Coast Magazine, Vue on 30a offers the ultimate dining experience with indoor and outdoor spaces. Non-member events are allowed, and beachside ceremonies are offered to couples who host their reception on site.

While we'll miss Kristi in Dallas-Fort Worth, we're thrilled for her new opportunity and so happy to see our members growing across the country - especially when they're only a quick nonstop flight away from Dallas!

We hope you enjoy this preview of the stunning venue where Kristi will work her planning magic.
