    Hey ladies

    I am thinking of miami for our wedding with no more than 30 guests. Just intimate and simple. We will have an AHR but i've looked at the spanish monastery, rusty pelican, deering estate, vizcaya and i'd really like input from those of you who actually live there.

    I'd like any suggestions on location, caterers, music, cake, and whatever else comes to mind. thanks for helping me out!
    a little help goes a long way.

      miami is a nice pick. for 30 guests, you should do pretty good. my bff lives there and i know that the deering is supposed to be stunning. do you have a photographer in mind yet? i heart expert appeal and artistry for video.
      also what are your options for your guests, if you're staying at a hotel than why not choose a hotel that can also host your wedding and reception.

          Spanish Monastery is beautiful for pictures. So is Vizcaya, but both may be prohibitively expensive for a small party. Rusty Pelican is a decent reception location - I just hate parking there. But a very nice ocean/city view.

          I have a wedding at Deering Estate at the end of October, I can post images if you're still looking then.

          freshislandgal has a good point - If you're bringing people in from out of town, doing your reception at the hotel would cut down on a lot of travel for everyone.

          This wedding was at Miami Beach Resort and Spa. They have a cool room upstairs with a starry ceiling: Tony Schreiber Photography - Wedding, Event, Portrait and Dance Photographer - South Florida- powered by SmugMug

          I second trafalgar on the Ft Lauderdale suggestion. Travel to/from Ft Lauderdale airport to Ft Lauderdale beach is easier and closer than getting from Miami airport to Miami Beach. I also live in Ft Lauderdale.
