Worth every penny

Parties By Pat @ Crandon Golf Key Biscayne was an incredible wedding experience for us. From beginning to end, Violet, the event manager was accessible, attentive and offered personal suggestions based on our vision and personalities. We got married in March 2022 with 150 people with a "Tropical Elegance and Garden Formal theme" . We had the ceremony on the golf course, dance floor outside + upstairs under the twinkle lights, buffet dinner inside the restaurant, and an awesome lounge area on the bottom platform. The day of staff were notably experienced and passionate about making sure my husband and I were comfortable all night. From the moment we entered our party, they were waiting to take our drink order and during dinner had our plates ready at our sweetheart table cut up into bite size pieces. I could go on, and on about all the amazing touches Parties By Pat added, but the biggest for me were trust and peace of mind knowing their team was going to deliver. I havent even begun talking about the food quality or taste yet. If you're a foodie and want your guests to remember a delicious wedding, then definitely look no further. I am still dreaming about the food options we had, and they even made a special menu for the amount of vegan/gluten-free requirements we had for a number of our guests. All of our bridal party pix on the golf course during sunset ceremony came out stunning and our portrait photos along the bay and Miami skyline were perfection. Being able to use one of the golf carts to ride off into the sunset for our pix was fun and helped enhance our experience as well. Because we were the only ones at the venue and were isolated on Key Biscayne we didn't have to worry about noise levels, parking availability or competing with other parties for attention. It is easy to understand why Parties By Pat have been so successful for 20+ years! Lastly, I want to thank Violet again for her suggestion to have "to-go" Krispy Kremes at the end of the night before we got back on our shuttle busses for the hotel. It was a hit. Our vision was exceeded, I'm still floating in gratitude and amazement at how well everything turned out, and our friends and family are still talking about the venue, food, bar menu and dessert station.

Miracle workers

The company directors Violet and Jose are the ultimate professionals and thanks to their effort, diligence and ability to quickly reorient we were able to have the wedding of our dreams.
The weather was horrendous to have our ceremony on the beach across the street from Crandon Golf Club and literally last minute they together with decorator Myrna from Taylor Event & Floral Design reorganized and moved all the extensive decor, chairs and handled guests on their premises at the golf course.
By the time I arrived I couldn’t believe the beauty and organization - it looked like a dream.
The food was excellent, ambiance on the terrace and wait staff elegant.
They have a huge amount of experience, flexibility and options for decor to make virtually any vision possible!
We are grateful to have such a wonderful wedding put together and executed flawlessly in spite of difficulties.
Thanks guys!!

Ps. When hiring a decorator/ florist we initially made a mistake to go with a man named Alberto from Flowers Unlimited whom you should never hire under any circumstances. Always get Myrna- super pro and she also does complete wedding planning.
