Down the Aisle to South Florida

Posted on November 26, 2009

Your wedding: a South Florida wedding. Makes a pretty picture doesn’t it? It’s more than just a pretty picture. It’s a very unique idea for all who wish to make their big day extra-special. With a wide array of venues ranging from low to high-end hotels, gardens as well as more unusual museums, country clubs and resorts, South Florida is a place that is host to thousands of destination weddings each year!
As a destination wedding photographer in South Florida, I can easily say that at least half if not more of our clients are from out of state. They choose to get married in South Florida for a variety of reasons – for some it is because this is where their parents or grandparents now live, for others they grew up here and have since moved away but want to get married where all of their friends and family are. For many, many others they choose South Florida simply because they want to have a destination wedding in the United States and they want nice, warm weather and beaches. These elements alone make South Florida the perfect place for weddings in general. We pride ourselves in assisting all of our out of state clients with their plans, as we know how difficult it can be to plan from afar – we did it too! We help direct them to appropriate wedding planners and venues that we think are close to what they are looking for. We have a South Florida wedding venue section on our proofing site which contains photos from many venues around town and this has proven to be an invaluable tool for our many out of state clients.





Destination weddings in Miami’s South Beach and Palm Beach are made much easier by the efficient wedding planners in South Florida, who can help you find venues such as The Breakers, The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, the Delray Beach Marriott, cozy Villa Woodbine in Miami and much more. With amazing weather year round, always warm and sunny, beach weddings are quite popular here. Most venues will offer great wedding packages for South Florida destination weddings.
For your guests who visit South Florida for your wedding, the destination offers a multitude of activities and tourist attractions to provide them with an ideal vacation and keep them happy and relaxed for your wedding. Underwater attractions include scuba diving, swimming with the dolphins, snorkeling, windsurfing etc. while spas, helicopter tours, museums, sightseeing, a Bahamas day cruise, picnics on the beach, touring the Versace house and many more sites to see can keep them busy on land.


In addition, let’s not forget the main reason South Florida is so popular – the beautiful beaches and our year round sunny weather. Your guests can also enjoy the amazing night life and lively club scene by partying away the nights, be it your bachelor/bachelorette night or just a night out on the town with friends. If you have time, you and your guests could also experience Delray or Miami Beach by Vespa and see the city in a whole new way with a lot of independence and fun thrown in. Other attractions nearby include The Florida Keys, Sarasota, the Everglades and Disney World, which are all just a short distance away.


Affordability is never an issue with weddings in South Florida. Whether your budget is more along the lines of a simple beach receptions or a grand wedding at a 5-star hotel, you will be sure to find the perfect venue to accommodate your needs. You could have your wedding ceremony on the beach, or go for a slighter higher priced venue, such as a country club or mid-range hotel – of which there are many. For those who don’t mind splurging on a highly luxurious wedding, the location is filled with 5-star hotels land resorts such as The Breakers, the Four Seasons Miami or Palm Beach, The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, The Ritz-Carlton South Beach, The Ritz-Carlton Coconut Grove, The Ritz-Carlton Palm Beach, The Biltmore and incredible mansions/museums such as Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, Casa Casuarina (Versace Mansion), Flagler Museum and the Norton Museum of Art. All are fabulous in their own ways and, of course, different places appeal to different people for different reasons. It’s great to have so much to choose from here!
A destination wedding in South Florida is sure to be the experience of a lifetime and will be an unforgettable event for you and your guests.
