The Arthur's Ceremony

This place is everything! The view was great, the staff was helpful and professional, and the venue was accommodating! Thanks Bayside Event Center for making my Bestie's special day a time to remember!

Every detail, even those I didn’t think of

You can not buy the view at Bayside on Offatt’s Bayou Bay in Galveston, Texas. The owners went above and beyond to ensure a care-free day. They texted special photos not captured by our photographer, it was very nice to have those on our honeymoon. Our guest enjoyed the smiles and attention from the staff. Wish we had gone with the inclusive package because in the end, we spent more than the upgraded Diamond they offered. Highly recommend.
