As Julie MacKinlay walked her dog along the brick pathway to The Historic Cavalier Hotel and Beach Club during the landmark’s years-long restoration, she couldn’t wait to see what it would look like.

On Wednesday, she got her answer.

 

About 75 couples, including the MacKinlays, attended “The Cavalier Unveiled,” a Valentine’s Day celebration at the Oceanfront icon.
