Jenni and Dean’s Miami Wedding at the Mandarin Oriental

Posted on September 24, 2012


What a truly spectacular venue for a wedding! Jenni and Dean’s recent wedding afforded me the opportunity to work at the incomparable Mandarin Oriental in Miami. Photographing this couple here was truly a treat and I made the best of what this one of a kind venue has to offer.





As a South Florida wedding photographer, I have worked at many varied locations while photographing South Florida weddings, including magnificent venues in Palm Beach to the Keys, but as far as Miami goes, the Mandarin Oriental stands out among the many other venues in the area. One of the main reasons this hotel is so unusual, is its prime location right on the bay – with simply breathtaking views of the colorful and bright Miami skyline. There is really nothing like this view anywhere and it alone is a reason to consider having your wedding at the Mandarin Oriental Miami.




Of all the cities in South Florida, Miami offers more high-end luxury resort hotels than anywhere. You’ve got three Ritz-Carlton’s, The Biltmore, The Loews and so many more. With that said, the Mandarin Oriental Miami is really nothing like any of these. With its distinctly oriental flair and décor, the hotel is chic, classy and supremely upscale all at once. I love shooting at venues that offer something different – not just a beach setting, which is prevalent all throughout South Florida. The Mandarin Oriental Miami, while not on the beach, does offer a manmade area with sand – a beach on the bay, if you will, that is a lovely place to just relax and soak in the rich atmosphere.




Jenni and Dean were great to work, as we explored the various unique backdrops that the Mandarin Oriental Miami has to offer. As we roamed around, that superb city skyline just stuck out as THE place to do some photos – so we were sure to hit that spot before the evening was over. The sparkling lights of Miami glistening on the bay is something that can’t be duplicated in many other spots in town and the Mandarin Oriental is situated perfectly to showcase this element.









Social Catering Director Kevin Tobe and his staff at the Mandarin Oriental did a wonderful job to insure that Jenni and Dean’s wedding went off without a hitch. Many thanks to Jenni and Dean for the opportunity to photograph their wedding at such a spectacular location.
