A Magical Day!
Thank you, Maurice and team, for a magical day! It was better than we anticipated. The garden was breathtaking. Maurice made everyone feel right at home and even walked my mom out to her car, he is a delight!

Gorgeous hidden gem in Miami Beach
Everything about MBBG was absolutely perfect for our wedding. The gardens are immaculately taken care of. During our January wedding, butterflies were everywhere, everything was lush and in bloom. We knew from the moment we walked the venue and met Maurice months ago, that this was the one.
First, let me just say that Maurice is a hero. His genuine enthusiasm for our wedding made planning so much fun. He offered helpful tips and ideas and was there from the moment we arrived until the very end to supervise cleanup. We loved meeting with him whenever we were in town and wanted to visit. He was very clear about all of the required insurance, paperwork, costs etc. He is quite simply the best.
We took advantage of the entire gardens the day of the wedding. We did our first look at the red bridge (so gorgeous), our ceremony on the great lawn, our cocktail hour on the patio and our reception in the banyon area + room. This set up was absolutely perfect. We also used the butterfly room the entire day.. Our makeup artist and lunch were delivered right there. We continued to use the room throughout the night to bustle my dress, eat some food, touch up makeup, etc. Maurice kept it locked so all of our stuff was safe, but he was there whenever we needed it opened.
MBBG is right in the heart of Miami Beach which was ideal since most of our guests were from out of town (we're from New York). We were able to ride-share everywhere. There are a ton of hotels nearby and of course, the beach! If you're looking to have a garden wedding in Miami Beach, you're done looking. You found it at MBBG. 11 out of 10.

From beginning to end Maurice worked with us every step of the way. Being out of state was challenging but we were so happy to have chosen this venue for our wedding. The garden is gorgeous and fits every season’s wedding. Ours was Game of Thrones themed and the venue did not disappoint! The bridal party was able to get ready on site in the butterfly room which was convenient. The only regret I have is that when the time our contract ended came (11:00pm) our guests were essentially kicked out. I would have rather been charged for the extra hour after the fact than to disrupt the reception! Other than that we were pleased.

Rays Of Light has illuminated this tropical oasis of a venue several times in the last year or so. The garden is perfect for any size wedding big or small. Outdoors or indoors, But outdoor photos are a must before your wedding ceremony.This venue is also the best deal in South Beach . I have heard this time again. And never have I seen a more dedicated man than Maurice Jackson who helps in so many ways with all of your venue needs . Even on the evening of your event, he personally stays until the very end and insures that everything goes off without a hitch. Most day of planners do not even do that! I fully indorse this venue and I always recommend this venue to all of my clients and friends looking for a beautiful place to get married in South Beach. Book early because this place is starting to get very popular. But having said this . The Botaincal Garden allows only one wedding reception per evening. So the place is yours!
