Best. Day. Ever.

My husband and I had the best experience at Bay Pointe. We got married at the Woods a few weeks ago and we couldn't have asked for a better venue! It is beautiful. Customer service was amazing! Everyone was so wonderful to us - our family LOVED the food & their overall stay. It was a dream come true! Working with Mariesa & Juno made wedding planning so incredibly easy and gave us flexibility! We can't thank you enough for making our special day even more special!

Our Dream Wedding

My wife and I fell in love with Bay Pointe the first time we saw it, prior to even getting engaged. After the proposal, our choice for a venue was easy! We loved all of the spaces Bay Point offers, but we went with the Woods because we were planning on having a fall wedding. We couldn’t get over how beautiful everything was- from the cottages, to the grounds and everything in between. Having a late September wedding, we were initially concerned that things wouldn’t still be blooming but we were very pleasantly surprised with how much variety of beautiful landscaping they had. We had two photographers and took a lot of photos, and in every single picture, the property is just gorgeous. There wasn’t a bad place to take a photo on the whole property! You can tell they take pride in making sure everything is exactly how you want it. All of the staff was professional, kind and went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect. I can’t say enough good things, I highly recommend Bay Pointe to anyone looking for the most beautiful venue!

My absolute perfect day.

I cannot say more good things about Bay Pointe Inn. From start to finish, they exceeded my expectations. My husband and I looked at over 20 venues and this one was the best by far, we knew it was the one as soon as we pulled in. The venue absolutely speaks for itself and the staff were even better. They catered to all of my guests and many of my guests said that they have never been to a wedding with such amazing workers. I want to get married all over again just to experience one more day with them. They are truly amazing and I couldn’t recommend them enough. They coordinated with me the whole day to make sure everything was perfect and they succeeded. It was by far the best wedding I could have ever imagined, it was perfect. Love love LOVE them!! ❤️❤️❤️
