    Beautiful wedding celebration at The Inn at Bay Harbor

    I cannot say enough about the team at the Inn at Bay Harbor who worked with us to plan and execute my son and daughter in law's wedding celebration. Kate Worland on the Event Sales team was an absolute dream to work with. We started planning for the event in 2019. Due to Covid, the date was moved twice and finally happened in September 2021. Through it all, Kate and Tina Gutowski, the wedding event manager, were flexible, efficient, professional and calm as we worked through all of the changes. The location could not be more perfect and we were so fortunate to have perfect wedding on the day. Our guests raved about the beautiful setting, the wonderful food and the service that was impeccable. Our wedding planner, Karly from Tableau Events, worked so well with Kate and Tina, it was a seamless event for us. Most of our guests traveled from out of town and were amazed at the beauty and wonder of the entire experience--many telling us it was the most wonderful weekend and such a special experience with many small touches that made it perfect. It was what we had hoped for and could not have been happier.

    Above and beyond

    We had our daughter's rehearsal dinner at the golf club and then a welcome event for 100+ on the Sagamore Terrace at the Inn at Bay Harbor. Both events came off seamlessly. Everyone involved did an outstanding job. The food was delicious. The service was great. The settings can't be beat. And there were no hidden surprise costs. They really went above and beyond to make the weekend extraordinary. We all enjoyed our stay at the Inn too!
