About Living Sculpture Sanctuary

Living Sculpture Sanctuary is a private wedding venue located in Davie, Florida. This unique and breathtaking outdoor location is a secluded retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Boasting expansive grounds of sparkling waterfalls, meandering paths, gurgling fountains, koi ponds, and lush tropical vegetation, this venue is a luxurious spot to exchange vows. The estate is the brainchild of Mary Luz Alvarez and Robert J. McKee, two trial attorneys who share a passion for justice and the environment. These lovebirds built the property from the ground up to welcome abundance, tranquility, and wellness into their lives. Since 2016, they have invited couples to celebrate their momentous occasion among the bonsai, desert roses, oaks, and orchids that make up this picturesque sanctuary.

Facilities and Capacity
Living Sculpture Sanctuary features crisscrossing trails that take visitors past luscious greenery, serene gardens, and chic outdoor furniture. Accommodating approximately 100 guests, the Healing Falls Esplanade is the ideal site for ceremonies of commitment. This idyllic setting is surrounded by 100-year-old oaks, three waterfalls, vibrant flowers, and a stone fireplace where coffee stations and dessert can be set up. An arched entrance through a stone wall leads into this atmospheric grotto, under which couples can take pictures. After the ceremony, guests can head along the Orchid Forest Stroll, where they will pass the Rock Zen Garden, Bonsai Display Wall, and Reflection Area. From here, wedding-goers can gather at the Sanctuary Center, a covered patio with a wood roof, travertine tiled floors, and a cozy fireplace. Sheltered by orchid-covered oaks and adjacent to a Japanese bridge over the koi pond, this outdoor pavilion hosts 120 people for reception dinners. Soon-to-be-newlyweds are encouraged to explore the rest of the property and discover other hidden gems for taking unforgettable photographs.

Services Offered
Weddings at The Living Sculpture Sanctuary come with six hours of event time, two for setup, and five for breakdown. Bistro and LED lighting, a wooden arch, tiki torches, industrial ceilings fans, and wood for the fireplace are also provided. Other amenities include valet parking, two Zen-decorated unisex bathrooms, and a clear ceremony tent with bistro lights. The wedding party will also have access to the Zen Lounge, where they can relax in a space designed to enhance the mind-body connection. This rejuvenating and air-conditioned suite comes with stylish furnishings, vanities, mirrors, a Bluetooth speaker, a mini-fridge, and a private patio.

    Most beautiful venue ever!

    From the first time we visited Living Sculpture I knew it was the venue for us. The relaxed and professional approach immediately put us at ease when making such a big decision as to where we would celebrate the best day of our lives. I was looking for an outdoor venue that would require very little décor and boy does this place deliver. Living Sculpture Sanctuary is a feast for your eyes; beauty & serenity everywhere you look! Mary from your warm welcome and total passion for your venue, we knew we want to get married there. It felt from the first moment all you wanted was for us to have a wonderful wedding
    With Adam from Sidecar Kitchen starting the process so well, you would normally think there might be a wobbly moment at some point but Kay has been nothing short of perfect to us. Clear in her communication, helpful with our decision making and again listening to every small detail we wished for, every guest without fail has mentioned how beautiful the venue was and how great Adam and the Sidecar Kitchen staff were on the day and we can only agree with them.
    So thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making the last 18 months preparation stress free and a real pleasure and then helping create a day we will never ever forget. It was the most magical day of our lives!

    Our wedding

    From the moment I first saw the Living Sculpture Sanctuary in person, I knew it was the place we would start our forever together. We had a beautiful, emotional, all around perfect day at the sanctuary. We could not have done it without their amazing staff. Special shout out to Pilar for capturing beautiful photos of us on the day of our final walkthrough and then presented a portrait of one of our favorites right before our ceremony. Thanks to everyone at the Living Sculpture Sanctuary, we were able to make our dream wedding a reality!
