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.
