Wedding Manager Darrin Land
Planning a Pensacola Beach wedding? There’s someone you need to meet.
Hilton Pensacola Beach Florida is happy to welcome award-winning officiant and events specialist Darrin Land as our Wedding & Special Events Manager.
After working in a flower shop during summer breaks while still in high school, Darrin traveled the country after graduation, working for top event specialists to prepare one-of-a-kind events. You may not expect to hear what he calls his favorite part of wedding planning because it’s exactly the unexpected that he loves.
No matter what happens, he will turn it around to ensure your wedding is everything you wished … and more. The biggest challenge of a beach wedding can be the weather, but Darrin and his team always have a backup plan – creating magical spaces inside our beautiful hotels.
He says the rewards far outweigh the challenges. “A beach wedding can often mean more time for the family to relax and enjoy their time while here to celebrate.”
And since the Hilton Pensacola Beach offers the venue, accommodations and catering all under the same roof, it makes the planning – and the big day – a dream come true.
“Everyone dreams of that romantic and magical moment when they will wed the love of their lives,” Darrin says. “The happy couple needs to feel confident and comfortable with the professional they have in charge.”
With eight years of Pensacola-based planning and hundreds of weddings under his (very stylish) belt, you can feel confident with Darrin at the helm. Working as a vendor for the Hilton for years before his official hire, he always felt like a member of the family.
“It was simple,” he says. “I love the beach, I love the Hilton and I love weddings!”
We know you will, too.
