Why We Like This Place

  • This magnificent mansion is the ideal backdrop for your wedding. Created to look like an 18th-century Italian villa, it opens onto a spacious terrace with a majestic view of a stone barge augmented by Greek-style statues and embraced by the waters of Biscayne Bay. Extensive gardens, designed as a series of “rooms,” are a natural extension of the manor’s interior.
  • Indoor and outdoor celebrations are equally lovely. Hold your daytime ceremony anywhere in the Gardens, followed by a reception at the Vizcaya Café and Shop. The covered Courtyard of the Main House and the East Terrace overlooking the bay are both beautiful spaces for an evening event.
  • The house and gardens are fun to explore as a pre- or post-wedding activity. Commissioned by millionaire James Deering, Vizcaya was built between 1914 and 1922. Guests will love touring the 34 opulently appointed rooms, and finding their way through the evocative Secret Garden, the intimate Theater Garden, the playful Maze Garden and the once-watery Fountain Garden. A fabulous collection of art is featured inside and out, and Deering’s goals of conservation and preservation of the surrounding native environment remain a high priority of the estate.
