    We're getting ready to take a trip down to Miami and will be checking out some possible ceremony/reception venues. Any suggestions?

      Look into Signature Gardens & Signature Grand... Are you looking to have a beach wedding? Inside?

        I don't think I want it directly on the beach, but definitely outside. I saw The Palms has a really pretty gazebo area. Probably something similar to that. I also like that it is right next to the ocean, so we could easily walk over for some pictures. I'm open to looking at anything though.

        Signature Gardens is one I have on my list. Their courtyard area looks nice from the pictures.

          I don't know anything about their service but Palms would be nice location.

            The pictures I saw of The Palms gazebo were wonderful! We are getting married in Miami at the Rusty Pelican deff not the beach scene we had in mind but it has a beautiful view of the water and it's in our price range :)

              i grew up in michigan, but moved to downtown miami two years ago so I know where and where not to bring out of town guests from personal experiences... haha

              for ceremony there is a super cute non denominational, old colonial styled church with a lot of character on lincoln road in south beach. This road is shut down to traffic, and is very unique in it's own right. here is the link:
              Miami Beach Community Church
              you could have the ceremony there and have your reception at any of the swanky hotels or art deco venues which are within walking distance. a few to check out are: The Delano (Miami Hotels - South Beach Hotels | Delano Hotel in Miami), The Bancroft Supper Club (Bancroft ::: Supperclub), The Catalina (http://www.catalinah...m/beachclub.htm), Nikki Beach (Nikki Beach), etc.... let me know if you like this style and i can send you more ideas.

              Or a very cool place to check out if you like a garden type feel is Vizcaya downtown miami. (Miami-Dade County - Vizcaya) You could have the ceremony and reception there.

              Hope I got your creative juices flowing.

                Miami is the best. You have Palms Hotel, Viscaya, Biltmore Hotel, Douglass Entrance, The Raleigh, The Delano, The Fountainbleau and Ritz carlton in Key Biscayne. There are lots of private waterfront homes available and also yachts you may rent. Miami basically has it all.

                Miami has spectacular weather overall and you have made a great decision.
                Check out Florida Keys also.

                Good Luck !!!

                  I had my destination wedding in Miami, Florida! Since i'm from CA, i did not want the beach, but instead the vintage, rustic, "Italy" feel.

                  When my husband and I were shooting a destination wedding in Miami, we were exploring locations to do the couples trash the dress and found Vizcaya. The bride grew up in the area, so she didn't want to go there since everyone else she knew had, i couldn't believe it - it was PERFECT, i kept seeing beautiful images everywhere! We ended up making a trip back to Miami a few months later after talking it over and found the other historic locations we chose to be part of OUR wedding day!

                      Yes! If you are going to Miami to check out venues, there is a definite couple you should check out. If you want it outdoors, there is the Bath Club, Miami Botanical Gardens, Vizcaya Museum...and a couple more. There is an awesome list here you can look at to give you an idea of what is around the area http://new.bestmiami...nues-locations/


                      There is also a really beautiful Spanish Monastery on the list you could check out!
