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.
