Our wedding in South Beach was so fantastic! We highly recommend the National Hotel, and also the wonderful Sagamore Hotel next door, where we had our afterparty. The Wedding Mapper was a great resource, our guests loved it. Here are some links to our wedding photos.

305-448-5561, you will deal with Juan's wife. If you want beautiful live guitar, you should use Juan. He was FABULOUS, and thank goodness, saved the day during my walk down the aisle that my DJ messed up (I still can't talk about it!). Juan was great, and all of my guests loved him. :) An elegant touch, especially to an outdoor venue.
Reverend Eddie went above and beyond what we could have asked, he was the perfect officient for our wedding. Especially if you consider yourselves "non-denominational" yet spiritual, Eddie is perfect for making everyone feel comfortable and still having a meaningful ceremony. He especially understands the different generational issues with religious ceremonies at weddings! We love him and consider him still a great friend and counselor.
Sorry to give a bad review; but I have to. Patrick played the wrong song for my First Dance with my husband! As well as the wrong introductory song to my ceremony. Although my guests didn't know, it was actually pretty devestating and embarrassing to me and my husband during the evening and I cannot recommend him.
The best thing we did in Miami was to book Magda, she is incredible, as you can see by our photos. She also did a free engagement shoot, which remain our favorite photos from the wedding week!!
Fantastic for trees and lighting, Esmeralda can also "drape" a room for you if you need it. Topiaries and trees as well. Very good prices and communication.
If I could give her ten stars, I would. Petal was incredibly professional, and especially my bridal bouquet, I was THRILLED with. We did orchids with some feathers; I wanted something very high fashion and she delivered. Fantastic.
Our cake was gorgeous, but $$$. Also, sort of annoying about the cake "stand", which was really lovely, you have to personally deliver it back to Ana Paz in Coral Gables, an interesting challenge if you are heading to a honeymoon (or just, BUSY) the day after your wedding!
