    My husband and I got married at the Lakefront Pavilion and we are still in awe of how amazing our experience was. Aside from the location being incredibly beautiful, the staff were outstanding. I am not a planner and I'm pretty disorganized-- working with the people at Bay Pointe was the main reason that things went so smoothly for us. The staff made me feel at ease, even when I was pretty anxious. From the moment we walked in, I felt like I had a whole team supporting me and my husband. For example, I forgot to print photos of my late family members for our memorial table (20 mins before our ceremony)-- Juno and Jocelyn just handled it-- they printed and framed photos immediately. When a staff member noticed that I was anxious, they checked in with me and brought me my favorite drink without me having to ask. The food was delicious and the number of guests that described our wedding as 'the best wedding they've attended' is tremendous. Also, the bartender (Megan) memorized so many of my guests' drink orders so she would have them prepared as soon as they got to the bar. Also, our wedding party and family were treated with so much respect-- the staff at Bay Pointe not only made my husband and I feel like the most important people in the world -- but they made our people feel the same way. I could go on and on about how amazing our experience was and I cannot even think of one negative aspect of getting married at Bay Pointe.

    Excellent wedding venue!

    I had my wedding at the Woods at Bay Pointe last weekend and it was an incredible wedding venue. The service and coordinators are awesome, great food and great location. We rented out all of the cottages for the night of the wedding and it was so fun to have all of our friends stay with us at the venue.
