We have strong relationships with countless vendors throughout Southern California and beyond. When matching our couples with their prospective vendors we focus on budget, style, theme, and for some vendors, personality. For example, when our couples are new and uncomfortable in front of a camera, we highly recommend Jessica Mangia as we believe her detailed direction and communication on the day of is unsurpassed and her ability to command a room is a necessary skill when dealing with large wedding parties.

One of the best wedding venue in Miami is definitely the romantic Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, with its old world aesthetic and the Spanish architecture. The venue previously known as Villa Vizcaya was built between 1914 and 1922 by owner James Deering. Being a conservationist, Deering sited the development of the estate portion along the shore to conserve the forests. This portion was to include the villa, formal gardens, recreational amenities, expansive lagoon gardens with new islets, potager and grazing fields, and a village services compound.
