Miami Beach Botanical Gardens is PERFECT for your small wedding
We decided to get married and wanted to have a very small wedding with under 10 people. We planned our wedding in a matter of days. We knew we wanted an outdoor venue with a tropical vibe - looked at many places, but the Miami Beach Botanical Gardens was perfect for our size and budget. We were able to book it for the day we wanted and the time we wanted only days ahead of the event. We held our ceremony in the Japanese Gardens - the pictures are fabulous, the scenery was intimate and relaxing. The best part of the experience was Maurice - he made it so easy for us, no pressure, no hassles, super helpful. If we could give him 10 stars it still wouldn't be enough. On the day of the wedding he was present and provided the little bits of help you need when you're pulling something together at the last minute. We highly recommend you consider the MBBG if you are considering a wedding in the Miami Beach area.Sent on 06/09/2021

A beautiful venue to hold an outdoor ceremony and/or reception. The Banyan room is a perfect backup plan for rain or to be used as a lounge area if the reception is outside. One of the most affordable venues in the Miami area. The reception area is very private. Perfect for smaller weddings!Sent on 03/02/2011
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!
