Absolute BEST. Cannot say good enough things about The Bay House. Stunning scenery, beautiful venue inside and out. The little touches like the candelabras and stained barn doors just make this place the most elegant yet homey location. Erin was wonderful and we'll definitely be coming back for a reunion!

The Destin Bay House is an amazing venue for a wedding or any other event. My daughter chose the venue as she now lives in the area. Many people traveled from Ohio and other states for this wedding and none were disappointed. It is an amazing and unforgettable setting. The venue creates an amazing atmosphere that will last a life time. Erin is very professional and make it all happen with ease. Believe me if she can put up with me she is amazing. I am like Jack Burns on Meet the Parents. We are very lucky to have chosen The Destin Bay house as it was definitely one of the best weddings ever. We had many guests tell us this was the best wedding they had ever attended. We all want to thank Erin for making the wedding a spectacular event.

We could not have asked for a more perfect venue in the Destin Bay House. The setting is gorgeous, simple and elegant and the view of the bay is stunning. Erin was so helpful, thoughtful and patient while working with us to plan our wedding and a total pro the day of the wedding. Our guests are still commenting on how beautiful the location was and how much fun they had!

I recently had my wedding ceremony and reception at the Destin Bay House and it was by far the most perfect location. We were worried about rain and we were able to last minute add a tent (even though it didn't rain at all). Erin was our day of coordinator and was so helpful, she made everything go flawless. As a bride you know there will be something you stress about day off and I have to say there was nothing. She coordinated with all the other vendors the times and made sure everyone knew where to go and what do to. Erin helped the whole evening run smooth and make sure the DJ knew when to start things. Having so much included already in the venue such as tables, benches, linens, arch, shepherds hooks and more made planning the wedding so much easier. This location was perfect for the outdoor and indoor location I dreamed of.

I would hire Erin at Destin Bay House to make all the decisions in my life if I could. She was so awesome. I'm sure everything didn't go as smoothly behind the scenes as I felt it did but she rocked it and made my wedding day stress free. If you use them you need to use their vendors. This lady knows what she is talking about. Trust her. She saved my wedding day by help finding me a new makeup artist the day before the wedding because the one I had lined up made me look like a clown.

Erin was wonderful to work with! The Destin Bay House is a gorgeous venue & the perfect fit for our wedding! Erin handled all the aspects of day-of-coordinating which really helped take a huge load off of my mind so I could enjoy the day & focus on the important details! She handled any issues that came up day of. I had no idea if anything was wrong at all! She collaborated with my other vendors & we set up a timeline that she helped me stick to throughout the night. She even made sure my husband & I had food & champagne at dinner time! She orchestrated every event to make sure everything ran smoothly. Our wedding was perfect from start to finish & we appreciate everything that Erin did to make sure all went as planned!

My now husband and I were married here this summer and we couldn’t imagine a more perfect moment. Erin was a huge help in planning our destination wedding. She was always easy to get a hold of, gave great recommendations, and really got to know us as a couple to make sure our day represented us.

One of the best features about the Bay House is the privacy and scenery! Here you have the best view of the sunset, and you never have to worry about onlookers being in the background of your photographs. From the dock, paver stone aisle, lighting, and fire pit, to the white wooden chairs, wood floors, chandeliers, and bridal cottage, the list of beautiful amenities is so expansive you’ll have a hard time deciding if you want to be outside or inside. We would recommend this place 100 times over, and look forward to coming back to visit!
