    The staff was very friendly and extremely accommodating to our needs. Kimberly was very friendly and took us on multiple tours of the place, letting us get a real feel for the space. We had the entire wedding at this location. We rented the Amphitheatre so that we could get access to the rest of the outdoor area, as well as the Bridal Suite, Chickee Hut (for the cocktail hour) and of course the Auditorium.
    We had an early morning Ceremony outside under the tree cover followed by a Brunch Reception just upstairs in the old auditorium. We provided a layout for all of the furniture and the staff made sure everything was set up just the way we needed it, including the chairs for the ceremony, which was in the round. We neatly fit 100 people under the trees with this setup.
    The Bride and bridesmaids were comfortable hanging out in the Bridal Suite before the ceremony, a room in one of the historic houses. It rained that day, but the staff was helpful in managing expectations and providing alternate locations. Thankfully it did not come to that. The Chickee Hut provided a great space for our cocktail hour. It was shaded, easily decorated, and larger than it seems. The staff let us take a few pictures inside one of the old classrooms as well, which was a great touch to our theme.
    The auditorium is large and has a lot of windows and lets in a ton of natural lighting. Old Davie School does provide tables and chairs for this room, but we chose to rent alternate chairs that went better with our vision. The original flooring is close to 100 years old and approval is needed for outside furniture/vendors and did create some limitations on what could be used on the tables (i.e. no glitter or candles), but this didn’t affect our wedding theme.
    We definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a unique location in a historic setting for an intimate wedding.

    outstanding venue! perfect for those Miami brides that want a non-traditional Miami wedding, or want a destination wedding but don't have the bang for that buck. This little Davie gem, looks like you just traveled a long way away from the very loud and crowded city. It is warm and inviting and the staff is just SO pleasant. If you decide to book here, and are a fan of all things vintage or anything with a story, MAKE SURE to check out the museum. They even have a classroom completely intact! THUMBS WAY UP!

Hi There. My name is Kris and I love LOVE! It was always my dream job to work in the wedding industry, but having a family & kids, it was hard to work weekends. My kids are now grown & I found my dream job at ODSHM. I enjoy meeting every couple & learning their love story. My favorite– how was the proposal? Old Davie School is an incredibly unique venue–not your typical hotel or country club, for sure. I planned my own daughter’s wedding here 7 years ago & have learned quite a lot since then. I love sharing what I’ve learned & the great ideas/tips from some very creative couples.
