Our CEO and founder Christian Boehm went on a 6-month journey to personally find, interview, and vet the very best local resources for our Jaxson Maximus grooms. He had a goal to find the best wedding venues, event planners, photographers, and wedding entertainment in southern Florida. We hope you find these resources for miami’s best wedding venues helpful as you start down your pathway for your special day.
Constructed over a decade from 1910-1922, the summer home of Charles Deering founder of International Harvester is something you have to see even if you choose a different venue for your wedding ceremony. It is simply jaw-dropping beautiful and rich with architecture, lush sub-tropical gardens and spectacular views inside and out on every side (see a 360-degree view of the estate here). Our Jaxson Maximus’ grooms will feel at home at this luxury wedding venue experience.

From the moment you enter the historical wooden gates and walk down the lush covered path, you enter a world of elegance and tranquility. With the view of the historic houses—the Grand Stone House and picturesque Richmond Cottage—along with the beautiful manicured lawn, lined with royal palms and overlooking the serene waters of Biscayne Bay, Jaxson Maximus’ grooms will feel at home.
Our Jaxson Maximus grooms will enjoy the history of this wedding venue whose construction dates back to 1133 AD in Sacramenia in Northern Spain. So how did it get to Miami? It’s been dubbed history’s largest jigsaw puzzle as it was deconstructed, packed in hay and shipped to the US piece by piece in 1925. Interestingly enough, it was never completely reconstructed due to the monetary constraints until 1953. The venue’s gardens, cloisters, and courtyard are rich for photography, and the three stone chapels makes it an ideal Miami wedding venue for weddings of any size.
Located just south of the Jaxson Maximus Flagship location in Brickell- Miami’s financial headquarters. The Cruz Building in Coconut Grove centers around a charming indoor courtyard that is enjoyed from each of its distinctive levels. Complete with glowing gas flame lanterns and stunning stain glass mosaic windows, this three-story wedding venue offers a unique feature in that you can host the ceremony on the ground floor, cocktails on the second floor and a complete sit-down dinner with dancing on the third floor.
Glenn Curtiss, the father of aviation and founder of Curtiss-Wright, had by any measure a massive amount of accomplishments in his life. Some of the most notable include setting the world landspeed record on a motorcycle he built, founding The Curtiss Airplane company which became the largest manufacturer of airplanes during World War I and being inducted into the Inventors Hall of Fame. His Pueblo Style mansion built-in 1925 sits to the North of The Miami International Airport which was built on land he donated. The mansion offers a unique wedding experience with distinctive architectural details, a shady tropical grove for outdoor ceremonies and new stone courtyard with an original stone bridge that was Glenn Curtiss’ bridge to his private pool.
Completed in 1939, the historic building caters to those who seek a unique wedding experience. Their brochure says it best “An UN-common wedding venue for UN- common people with UN-limited possibilities in UN-surpassed opulence with UN-matchable beauty boasting UN-restricted hours and UN-expected details.” UN-leash your imagination and check out this unique wedding venue.
Jaxson Maximus wanted to recommend one Miami beach wedding venue that you can have a beach wedding without getting sandy and destroying your custom made pants and DiBianco kicks. Sunset Cove is a hidden gem and located right next door to the Sea Aquarium on Biscayne Bay. It has dynamic views and can hold a large wedding, no problem. Imagine Weddings also is one of the best event planning agencies that specialize in Cruise Ship wedding experiences.
Located in Coral Gables, The Club of Knights offers you a simplistic but highly stylish and interactive venue option. After touring the venue, I was impressed with the simplicity and detail of the three spaces that you and your guests would use for your special day.
The large outdoor garden space offers a dynamic Banyan tree with waterfall backdrop and fantastic bistro lighting that is great for your ceremony or perhaps a modish reception after a local church ceremony. The two indoor spaces deliver in every aspect. The spacious lounge area has a beautiful wrap around granite bar highlighted by modern glass mahogany doors.
I appreciated this space as I viewed it from an attendees perspective and felt like it was a great space to escape, converse and catch up with friends and family while all the fun was going on in the ballroom as your evening progressed. If you love to dance, the ballroom has one of the best lighting shows I’ve seen in Southern Florida.

An interesting fact about this venue that I discovered upon my visit is that even though it overlooks the Granada Golf Club, the Coral Gables Country Club is not an actual country club but a historical site who has retained the name “The Coral Gables Country Club.” The venue opened officially as an event space in 2010 to do events only all year round.
