The historic Deering Estate, sister to Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, was the home of Charles Deering. The stone house was built in the 1920’s and the beautiful architecture mimics the era in which it was built. As you walk toward the house you are surrounded by lush tropical hammocks. The grounds have a breathtaking view of Biscayne Bay where most Wedding ceremonies take place. The Harbor is is lined with palm trees and as you gaze upon the bay it almost looks like you are sitting on the water itself.
Vizcaya Museum and Gardens
Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is one of the most breathtaking venues I have ever seen. It was owned by the late James Deering, brother to Charles Deering of Deering Estate (above). The estate is surrounded by subtropical forests and the structures built around the property make it look like it came straight out of a fairytale. The main house is so grandiose, every crevice of the building is filled with fine detail. When you look up you can see art painted on the tall ceilings of the property. The back terrace opens up to the water of Biscayne bay where most wedding receptions take place. Wedding ceremonies usually take place on top of a garden mound where a gorgeous structure stands. It is the perfect place to host an extravagant wedding celebration.
Villa Woodbine is both grand and intimate. When you enter the Villa, you are greeted by a beautiful fountain in the middle of the courtyard. You can hear the fountain trickling as you explore the property. The villa has so many attributes, such as a staircase perfect for grand entrances, two fireplaces, and a giant oak tree where most ceremonies take place. This venue is filled with photo-worthy spots. It’s no wonder its been featured by bridal blogs and magazines. It is truly a gorgeous gem.
The Biltmore Hotel
The Biltmore Hotel was built by George Merrick who called it “The castle in the sky”. It lives up to its name as it stands in the center of the historic city of Coral Gables. When you enter the main foyer, there are grand painted vaulted ceilings. The Biltmore Hotel has 4 ballrooms on the property, all of which are filled with crystal chandeliers, tall ceilings and big windows. Its over the top aesthetic makes it the perfect place for a royal wedding.
The Ancient Spanish Monastery
The Ancient Spanish Monastery feels like you are in a different part of the world. It should feel that way because it’s not from Miami. Originally built in Spain in 1141 AD, its original name was The Monastery of our Lady queen of Angels. In the 1950’s it was rebuilt in Miami Florida. The Cloisters of the Ancient Spanish Monastery are the perfect backdrop for a royal themed wedding. This venue is not just filled with history but it truly gives your guests an experience like no other.
The Curtiss Mansion is not only romantic but is one of Miami’s most unique venues. Designed in the Pueblo Revival style, Curtiss Mansion was constructed in 1925 by Glenn Hammond Curtiss. It has multiple wedding ceremony areas that cater to your unique style. The courtyard, home to most receptions, makes for a whimsical setting perfect for a romance-filled wedding. This venue also has a ton of history so make sure you check it out.
