Bay point woods exceed out expectations for our wedding day. Food, drink, staff, cottages were simply amazing. We had our ceremony outside, then cocktail hour outside as well. Dinner to follow inside then dancing and fun! After we had to leave the reception we were able to sit around the fire with family and friends! I would recommend this place a thousand times! Thanks again Bay pointe!Sent on 08/26/2019

Beautiful Michigan Summer Wedding
Lovely place and guests were impressed. Food was delicious and even guests commented on how good it was. The grounds are gorgeous. Just keep in mind that you can only take photos by the lake between 12-2 I think it was. There is then possibly a rehearsal going on around 3:30 the day of your wedding in Saturday’s so you need to schedule pictures around that.Sent on 08/30/2019

Wedding of our dreams!
We were so happy with our venue, the food, the staff, and the cottages. Our wedding was above and beyond all expectations. If you decide to go with The Woods book or reserve the cottages. It really felt like we were at a destination wedding with our families and closest friends. By staying at the cottages we were able to check in a few days before the wedding to enjoy the lake and nearby attractions. The morning of the wedding was at a relaxed pace getting ready as we had all of our decorations and pieces on site already. We had a hair and make up stylist come to one of the cottages and spent the afternoon laughing and enjoying our time while getting ready for the ceremony. The actual ceremony was under the beautiful arbor followed by cocktails and appitizers on the patio. Then the party got started! Dinner was amazing, dancing was fun. After the party ended a few of us went out to the fireplace for another hour or so just replaying the days events! You would never be disappointed by having your celebration at Bay Pointe Woods!Sent on 07/10/2019
