I can honestly not say enough good things about our wedding, wedding planning experience, and Michelle Cannici at the Bahia Mar! First of all, Michelle (the catering manager) is absolutely amazing at her job! She was there every step of the way, available whenever I had even the tiniest question, and helped to alleviate much of the stress typically associated with planning a wedding.Sent on 04/03/2018
Our entire wedding weekend was just perfect! Michelle reached out to all of my vendors the week of and they were all where they needed to be when they needed to be there on my big day! I brought in some of my own decor and Michelle and her team set it up beautifully for us. They totally nailed my vision. The ceremony/cocktail hour location along the intracoastal was just breathtaking. There were plenty of gorgeous backgrounds for photos everywhere we turned. The reception was upstairs in the Grandeview ballroom, which was recently renovated, and is just stunning. The large windows facing the ocean gave it such a pretty ambiance. Michelle made sure we stuck to our timeline and were happy every step of the way. Not to mention that the food was delicious and the servers were friendly! On top of it all, creating the room block was a breeze and everyone had smooth check in experiences. Definitely reserve the ocean front suite, you won't regret it!
I got the wedding of my dreams at my ideal venue and I couldn't be happier! A million thank yous to Michelle and her team!

Bahia Mar wedding
From the moment we saw the venue and met Michelle we had an amazing experience. She was a delight to work with. The venue is beautiful and our pictures came out amazing because of the hidden back ceremony area they have. Our wedding process was so smooth all thanks to Michelle for understanding what we wanted and answering any and all of our questions/concerns. The day of our wedding was perfect. The staff was friendly and so accommodating. The food was delicious starting from the appetizers to the main course and the late night snacks. We could not have picked a better place for our special day. We would highly recommend Bahia Mar as a wedding venue !!!!! :)Sent on 04/06/2019
Bahia Mar is an amazing place to get married! Working with Michelle is a stress free experience!
I really enjoyed meeting Michelle Cannici. Their venue has many unique facets for those considering a wedding or other type of event there. You have a crosswalk to the beach. There is a special garden area with a pond which is great for pictures. You can hold a private wedding in the event space that overlooks the Intracoastal and yachts. Fantastic space for those guests who like a more private affair. The pricing points are great for the location, event space and unique facets of this venue. It would be a pleasure to work with Michelle.
I've done many wedding here and the people are so nice to work with, so helpful and timely. All my couples have left happy. Thank you for a great job.
