We had the first post in our awesome wedding venue series last month and we are so excited to have another great venue to tell you all about! The Raleigh South Beach in Miami is such a beautiful property and location for a wedding or reception.
It is known as a “grand dame” of art deco style, and stands out above many other wonderful locations in South Beach. Located right on Miami Beach just steps away from popular Collins Avenue, the hotel is stunning and offers so many wonderful amenities. You can lounge by their pool that is underneath lush foliage or relax in a oasis cabana. Or, unwind after a long day at Martini Bar that has been named “one of the top bars in the world” by Details Magazine. Enjoy a locally sourced meal prepared by their James Beard Award-winning chef at Restaurant Michael Schwartz. And of course do not forget about all the amazing shops, nightclubs and more that are offered throughout the city.
If you are looking for a South Beach venue that offers a sophistication and luxurious feel, The Raleigh is perfect. The property has over 30,000 square feet of private event space which includes the pool, penthouse and private beach for a romantic place to say “I do!” They can accommodate up to 1,200 guests. To get more details or to contact The Raleigh South Beach about planning your wedding with them, you can visit their events page here.
Manolo with In Focus Studios had the opportunity to photograph a very beautiful wedding at The Raleigh South Beach. Here is what he had to say about the couple and their wedding:
“This lovely Canadian couple chose to hold their ceremony in the heart of Art Deco South Beach at the historic Raleigh Hotel. They felt it very important to celebrate their Miami roots during their nuptials. Their reception and ceremony was carefully crafted by Solea Events and was helped along by the gorgeous South Florida weather.”
Here are some beautiful photos of this wedding at The Raleigh South Beach. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
What an absolutley stunning wedding! The details and photo opportunities (as you can see from these amazing photos from In Focus Studios) are just endless at The Raleigh South Beach.
