Our Perfect Day
We celebrated the most magical day here thanks to the amazing team at the Inn at Bay Harbor. We held a small ceremony on Sunset Beach for just our immediate family. I knew we chose the right venue from the moment that I reached out to Carolyne inquiring about booking to the celebratory dinner we held at Vintage Chop House and Wine Bar (without reservation I might add as our plans changed and the kind Bay Harbor team accommodated us very last minute). Our day was pure perfection and everything we could have asked for. Thank you once more to the amazing staff throughout the Inn at Bay Harbor.Sent on 08/30/2020
