    Great Experience at The Destin Bay House

    The Destin Bay House is perfect for a beach wedding. Large, open and immaculately maintained. The private beach and lighted garden make for excellent pictures and the bay is a beautiful backdrop for a sunset wedding. Erin Hadaway’s work as coordinator was outstanding, the entire event flowed smoothly even when inclement weather came up suddenly. She is truly talented in planning events.
