The Destin Bay House was the perfect venue for our destination wedding! When my parents and I came to Florida from Tennessee in October 2014, we had no idea where to begin. However, my mom made appointments with a few recommended venues and this was our first stop. As soon as we came around the corner from the front of the house, we all knew this was exactly what we were looking for. It was absolutely breathtaking! It was the perfect blend of laid-back, fun and beautiful. It was everything I was looking for in a wedding venue. Then, we talked to Erin and knew for sure that is where we wanted to get married! She was the best and is truly an expert at her job! When we had our April 2015 wedding it was the best day of our lives. The entire wedding, from start to finish, was amazing! All of our out-of-town guests were very impressed by the venue and talked about how perfect everything was. I definitely owe all of it to Erin and her recommended vendors! I wish we could do it all over again! I wouldn't change a thing!

If you're looking for a BEAUTIFUL, intimate wedding venue with lots of style then you need to book the Destin Bay House. I dreamed of a wedding that was on the water, full of elegance and class but made our guests feel at ease. No one enjoys a contrived or "stuffy" wedding. Don't be fooled, the intimate setting is in no way modest, with the gorgeous chandeliers, travertine tile dance floor, woods floors, nicely finished bathrooms. Every one of our guests remarked at the beauty of the Destin Bay House, and many of them said they appreciated that it felt like we were in someone's home. In my opinion it set the perfect atmosphere for a naturally elegant evening.

We cannot recommend Destin Bay House -- and especially Erin -- enough. The venue is absolutely gorgeous. We picked the location because it gives the best of everything. It's on the water, but avoids all the pitfalls of a beach wedding (sand blowing everywhere, loud/wind, no parking, no shade, etc). It also is equally as impressive inside the building(s) as outside. We picked a location where if the worst case scenario happened -- rain -- we could move inside and still be just as pleased with our location (even though it wasn't an issue on our wedding day).

The venue has everything you could want. Dance floor, portable bar, lighting, fire pit, dock (we did a boat getaway), small personal beach, great trees/plants, benches, linens, benches, tables, sound/video system, etc, etc, etc. Having the reception at the same place as the wedding ceremony is also a big plus, and really allowed our guests to enjoy everything all at once, without hassle.

The best part of the Destin Bay House though is definitely having Erin to work with. She knows the place inside and out, has absolutely everything accounted for on-site, is incredible to work with, and just makes everything go so smoothly. Simply put, this is where you should have your wedding and reception.

There may be other locations that are slightly cheaper, but none can match this venue or Erin's services. Trust us, we know from our own experience. The Destin Bay House helped make our wedding magical.

The Destin Bay House was our pick because of the cozy, private, personal feel when you are at the area... The first time I stepped into the location, I had to pick the place because it felt so romantic.
There are a lot of amenities included when you book the location which was a plus...
You will still have the beach wedding without getting your wedding gown dirty and sinking in the sand! LOL... It will take your breath away when you see the ceremony location, it surely did to us! It was such a bliss to get married at Destin Bay House with the man of my life, witnessed by our family and friends that are dear to us...

PERFECT!!! I can't articulate well enough how much my husband and I loved this site. Erin, the site manager, knows her stuff and has back up plans out the wazzoo should weather or anything else come up. The views are stunning, the back patio is the best for socializing, and the interior is simple elegance. While there is some sticker shock with the place, it's worth every penny for what is included. Love, love, love this place and am so happy we married here.

If you're looking for an AMAZING venue and wonderful wedding coordinator in the Destin/30-A area, look no further!! Destin Bay House is THE ONE!! ;) My husband and I recently got married there in October 2014, and we were absolutely grateful to have found this place. Our wedding guests were in awe of the place; they kept making comments about how beautiful the Bay House was and how intimate everything was. If my husband and I decide to renew our vows in the future, the Destin Bay House will definitely be in our minds!

Erin S., our day of coordinator at the Bay House, went ABOVE and BEYOND for us! She's so easy to work with, really listened to our needs/wants, and made suggestions that were really helpful. Despite the craziness of our day, everything went smoothly!

It's difficult to think of a place to start describing just how incredible the Bay House is. Erin is hands down the best coordinator and venue planner. From day one any question I had was immediately responded to..and when it came to the big day the extent of control Erin showed meant worry free for me! Beautiful venue, everything I needed included, reasonable pricing, organized & just PERFECT. Great choice for someone wanting a more open choice of what they want without resort prices or extreme stipulations in place, with a cozy feel even for larger groups. Hands down best experience ever!! Highly recommend!

Incredible venue with an incredible owner/day-of coordinator!! If I had to do all over, I'd pick this place over and over again. It is absolutely beautiful and is decorated simply and beautifully--not much need to pay for decorations. Erin is so so wonderful. Everything went so smoothly because of her--her calm demeanor will relax any nervous bride!

I can't speak highly enough of the Destin Bay House and Erin Shoults. Both contributed to making my wedding day the most perfect day of my life. Thanks again!
