Ok, first of all the place is amazingly beautiful, everyone at the wedding loved it and it was perfect for what we needed for our casual wedding, but its not good for a traditional wedding. It's only good for daytime weddings (they close at five), you really can't have dancing (they don't allow loud music), the rental is only for 4 hours (you have to pay for extra time), they don't provide anything except the space rental, which isnt that big, so if you rent more than one space it gets pricey. The staff isn't very organized, every time i called they would tell something different (example one person told me i could have a tent the other one told me i couldn't etc). They also told me that they never book more than one wedding a day, when we got there the day of there were two other weddings going on. It depends on what you're looking if you want a casual short daytime garden wedding they are perfect.

It has taken more than a half-century for Pinecrest Gardens to evolve into the lush oasis of towering banyans, natural streams filled with turtles, Japanese Koi, and a lake that provides a home for an array of magnificent water fowl. It is a place to experience cultural enrichment in a panoramic setting and to learn about history and our environmen t. Every element of the Garden reflects excellence, beauty and inspiration to transform the visitor experience into one of discovery, enlightenment and entertainment. The Gardens contains approximately 4.3 acres of native forested wetland, 3.3 acres of tropical hardwood hammock and an acre of native cypress slough hammock. In addition, the site contains remnants of the original bed of Snapper Creek. Pinecrest Gardens features over 1,000 varieties of rare tropical and exotic plants, and has long served the South Florida community as an educational resource for natural science teachers, students and researchers. Among the facilities you’ll find a children’s Splash ‘N Play water amusement area, a petting zoo, playground and picnic areas and spectacular landscapes. There is a 500 seat outdoor theater and several meeting and party venues. The site was designated as an individual historic site pursuant to the Metropolitan Dade County Historic Preservation Ordinance on December 19, 1990. The site is also recorded with the Florida Division of Historical Resources as an historical site.

The breathtaking Lakeview Terrace, Patio and Pergola, all overlooking famous Swan Lake, are favorites amongst Brides and Grooms-to-be and the large grassy Meadow can accomodate open-air or tented seating. Available for rental starting at $400.00, these areas can be rented seperately or combined to accommodate parties from 50 - 500 guests.  Pinecrest Gardens also has several indoor spaces available for rent for meetings, conferences, parties, corporate dinners, bridal showers, baby showers, and other special occassions.
