Bay Harbor was exceptionally accommodating. Besides being a beautiful venue, their service, flexibility, and accommodations were what made this place the perfect choice for us in northern Michigan. There were no minimums or requirements to meet. The coordinators there, Megan and Melinda, went above and beyond what I could ever expect! They are truly professionals and the Bay Harbor Village offered such an intimate, quaint, setting for my guests to relax and enjoy

Absolutely the most beautiful venue you can imagine in the Summer. We are thrilled that we stumbled upon Bay Harbor and have now found our new favorite vacation spot in Michigan. We had an outdoor wedding and reception on the lawn area near the marina and it was everything I could have imagined! The only negative part was that our coordinator was not very present on our wedding day and our ceremony location was not set in a timely manner and my family was running around taking care of it, when they should not of had to. Minor glitch, but it does stand out in our minds. If you are looking for a place to have your wedding in MI...this is the place! Overall you will not be dissapointed!
We love working with Bay Harbor and the Bay Harbor Village Hotel. The location is perfect! There is something for everyone who visits. I appreciate the efforts and responsiveness by the team at Bay Harbor including Tracy and Molly. I look forward to each event and wedding that we have that is at Bay Harbor!
I love photographing clients at this gorgeous venue!
Perfect location in Northern Michigan for your Wedding. They have it all in style. Every Wedding I have captured there is just awesome.
