Sherri Kuhn, our wedding coordinator at Henderson Park Inn, was simply amazing!! We had a beach wedding in Destin, Fl., so we were back and forth long distance in creating "that perfect and memorable wedding!" It was just that :)...Sherri had set us up with the best vendors, and pulled together exactly what the bride and groom had dreamed of having! Sherri is an absolute GEM...so professional and so personable! She truly felt like part of our family :)!!! Meet with her before any other wedding coordinator... you will be so glad you did!

My husband and I recently were married at Henderson Inn, Destin FL. Henderson is a B&B with wonderful food, which is how I originally heard of this hotel from a friend recommending a stay here. After my now husband proposed in September 2013, I looked into Henderson for our wedding. It was exactly what I had in mind. There are options of beach or lawn ceremony and receptions. It is a beautiful beach front venue, more quaint and personable than a larger resort type. The beach is private, so strange people will not be wondering around while you are saying your vows.
Sherri Kuhn is the wedding planner at Henderson. I cannot speak highly enough of her. We were planning our wedding from Orlando, FL and Madison, AL. Sherri handled all of the details for meeting different reputable vendors in the area, as we flew in for only one weekend to make some pretty big decisions. I had flight issues into Destin and arrived hours behind flustered and worried the weekend would be a bust. Sherri with short notice arranged new times with the vendors and we still managed to meet them all and do a food/cake tasting. She is very helpful and calm during times of panic, which happens with wedding planning. Throughout the planning process, that for us was only about 7 months, she was excellent at keeping us on track and coordinating everything with the catering and vendors. It would have been impossible for me to manage all of the small details from afar without her! My husband and I had a limited budget as far as weddings go. She worked with us to make cuts so that we could have an amazing wedding that was reasonable as far as cost. On our wedding day, Henderson has a room available just for the bridal party. This was a big help. She kept me relaxed and on time, while making sure everything was being set up as planned. During the ceremony and reception, her and the other staff were kind and helpful. Sherri even brought blankets to cold guests because the wind was chilly! It was perfect

Ben and I were married on 10/19/13 at the Henderson Park Inn. I can't say enough positive things about the experience. The staff is amazing! They are so friendly and helpful. The Inn feels very vintage and is so romantic which is the type of wedding I was wanting to have. Sherri Kuhn , who is the wedding planner at the Inn, was amazing! We are from KY so we flew down for a weekend to meet with Sherri and plan the wedding. It was a long day but Sherri kept it fun. We met with all the vendors to make the major decisions such as the wedding cake, menu, colors, flowers, reception set up, hair and make up test, photographer etc. I did not have to worry about anything and the final result was gorgeous! One of the main reasons I chose to have my wedding here was because they are very flexible and aren't cookie cutter so you can have a wedding that is your own wedding. Other places only had plans to choose from and weren't very flexible on deviating from them. Sherri was available at anytime to answer any questions or even to be someone I could talk to if I was feeling anxious. I highly recommend getting married at the Henderson Park Inn !

We had our wedding at the Henderson Park Inn this May 2013. Sherri Kuhn is the wedding planner for the site and she did a great job planning everything and making sure everything went according to plan. Sherri helped us book some of the best vendors in the area, and she did a great job coordinating all of the vendors so everything went smoothly on the wedding day. We were long distance and Sherri made it easy for us to plan everything even though we lived far away from Destin. The Henderson Park Inn was a beautiful place to have a wedding and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is going to have a wedding in Destin Florida. The staff at the Henderson Park Inn were very helpful and very responsive to our needs. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding. Thank you Sherri and thank you to the staff of Henderson Park Inn.

Also the catering from the Beachwalk restaurant was phenomenal. They make excellent food, and it made the night that much better.

The main asset you are getting when you use HPI is the location and the beauty of the venue itself. We had a lot of trouble with the events manager. ONE MONTH before the wedding they told us we could not use outside catering (when we already had everything set up with an outside vender). So after reviewing my contract with counsel, we determined that they could not stop us. TWO WEEKS before the wedding we finally get in touch with the general manager (Ryan Olin) and he took over our event from there. He decided that I was right about the contract and allowed us outside venders. READ YOUR CONTRACT CAREFULLY! The maintenance crew was extremely helpful! and of course the natural beauty of the place made up for the manager's lack of professionalism. So if you are willing to sacrifice service for surroundings this place is great!

Also, I was told they would clear the beach for our 5:30 service (one of the reasons we chose the Inn was the privacy). However this did not happen so we had lots of on lookers. =/

As for the normal hotel staff they were very helpful and professional. We stayed the night of the wedding at the Inn, and the service/quality/cleanliness was great! i would defiantly go back to stay as a guest, but I probably would not hold another event there.

Henderson Park Inn responded with the following comments:

I want to apologize to the bride Jenna if she felt she had trouble with the management at Henderson Park Inn. She new 100% at the time of booking about our policy on not using outside catering. She even got an entire quote from appetizers to entrees to bar. Everything went smooth for months of planning until unfortunately her mother got involved and they went "radio silent." After many failed attempts at contacting them I was finally able to get a hold of the mother who was extremely rude. After many talks about not allowing them to use an outside caterer I decided that it was not in our best interest in dealing with Jenna's mother for the reception. We let them use our lawn and they used their outside caterer which ended up being them cooking in a condo down the street and bringing the food to the lawn. This explains the type of wedding they were looking for and if we had known on the front end we would have steered them away from our location. Jenna and her fiance were extremely nice throughout everything and I wish them luck. Sometimes weddings end up costing much more than someone has in their minds, and can cause people to act in different ways. This is what happened in this situation and we did everything we could to help the mother to stay in an unrealistic budget. We are extremely customer service oriented and take great pride in our guests and wedding couples.

This Bed and breakfast on the beach was awesome, couldn't have asked for anything more quaint. It was adults only and it was in Destin. The rooms were a little small but very unique.

Wedding is coming up in November at HPI. Very nervous to say the least. They have (at the last minute) gone up on prices AGAIN for catering. Their lowest price per plate is 46 dollars. Ridiculous. Staff is extremely rude and ladies up front are very short and not sweet or warming. The HPI does not allow middle income families to be able to enjoy the wedding process because they make everything incredibly expensive. Watch out! There are other places to get married that are just as pretty that could save you THOUSANDS of dollars. Oh and did I mention you have to rent out the ENTIRE inn to use indoor room for a reception? Yeah, it's true. HPI will make you BROKE and leave you with a bad taste in your mouth when it comes to weddings.
