As a Miami wedding photographer, it’s so important to build relationships with quality vendors because a successful wedding day requires us to work together as a team to be able to create the magic that we do. Over the years of shooting weddings, I’ve gotten to work with some of Miami’s best and I wanted to share these people with you so you can have a resource of vendors you know you can trust and will deliver quality work. These are not only talented professionals but just all-around great people that I know you will love!
MIAMI WEDDING VENUES
One of the most important aspects of a wedding day is undoubtedly the venue. With so many old-school and dated venues in Miami, it can be hard to find something outdoors and garden-style. Villa Woodbine is one of my absolute favorite places to shoot, offering a beautiful villa to get ready in that provides a great backdrop for photos, and the most magical garden with a live oak tree to be your ceremony backdrop. And it’s located right in the heart of Miami so your guests won’t have to travel too far to get there.
The Betsy Hotel
The Betsy is a venue I only shot at for the first time recently, but once I saw it I couldn’t believe I hadn’t heard about it sooner. The Betsy is a stunning hotel on Miami Beach that has a style you won’t find anywhere else on the beach. It offers everything from rooftop ceremonies, beautiful bright rooms, outdoor receptions in their beautiful garden patio, and Ocean Drive right out front which is the perfect backdrop for photos. If you are looking to do a beach wedding, this is the absolute perfect venue for you.
MIAMI WEDDING PLANNERS
Events by Zeiry
Zeiry aka “Z” as we call her is one of the best at her game. She not only has tons of experience but brings that Latin warmth to her weddings so she doesn’t just feel like a planner, but a friend. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Z quite a bit and I know she is a planner you can trust to make sure things happen seamlessly on your wedding day.
Gabriela Sousa Events
I met Gabi many years ago and since then I’ve had the pleasure of not only working weddings together but shooting her destination wedding in Santorini! She is one of the sweetest humans you will ever meet and truly loves what she does. She is young but is as professional as those with 20 years of experience, and will add great energy and joy to your day you will be so thankful for. And she is truly a details person and could not be a better person to make your day flow smoothly.
MIAMI WEDDING VIDEOGRAPHERS
Choosing a videographer is more than just about their talent but how they work with the photographer on your wedding day. It’s so important for the photo/video team to flow together so we can work as a team so we can create our best work without getting in each others’ way. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jesse and the Motive Cinemas team countless times over our careers, and I can say they are amazing at what they do. They are people that I trust and I know will be nothing short of professional on your day, giving you the direction you need without interfering with the day.
Alex Martinez Films
I only recently got to meet and work with Alex, but he and his team create films that truly feel like a movie. If you are looking for a style that tells a story and is not cheesy but more cinematic, you will love their work. They are so kind, professional, and easy to work with on a wedding day and I would never hesitate to recommend them to anyone!
Primrose Floral & Event Design
I met Stephanie from Primrose many years ago and was instantly drawn to her work. After collaborating on styled shoots and getting to see her true talent, I ended up hiring her for our wedding and could not have been happier! She went the extra mile to find specific things I was looking for and I couldn’t recommend her enough. She’s been in the business for quite a while but still brings a young and modern approach to weddings, which I love.
Ever After Floral Design
You can’t talk about best florists in Miami without mentioning Helen from Ever After. Her work truly speaks for itself and is bright, fun and romantic. Chances are you’ve already saved some of her work to Pinterest 🙂
MIAMI WEDDING RENTALS
Modern and eclectic is the perfect way to describe Unearthed Rentals. Having worked over 600 weddings they are some of the most experienced in South Florida but are not old school by any sense. They have a large collection of unique pieces you are sure to fall in love with.
If farmhouse style and reclaimed wood are your vibe, then Simple Rustic is right up your alley. They not only offer beautiful wooden rentals but florals as well, so they are a great 2-in-1. If you are having an outdoor or garden style wedding, their pieces will fit perfectly into your wedding day.
MIAMI EVENT DESIGN
The House of Gather
I had the pleasure of meeting Ashley a few years ago and as soon as I met her I knew she had great style and an eye for design. Newer to the industry but coming in with a bang, she is the perfect person for those who want their wedding to be a Pinterest dream but just don’t know how to tie it all together. She’s the person to bring your vision to life and create the most beautiful experience on your wedding day and other wedding events.
MIAMI CALLIGRAPHY & SIGNAGE
Jess from Salvaging Eden is not only one of the most creative artists in her field, but a good friend of mine who I’ve gotten to watch grow over the years. She’s taken her business from a small studio to a multi-faceted business and will bring a fresh approach to the little details of your wedding that make a difference. A quick scroll through her Instagram and you are sure to fall in love with her modern boho style, but after meeting her in person you’ll want to be real-life friends!
MIAMI BRIDAL SHOPS
Lovely is the type of bridal shop that makes you feel like you’re stepping into a dream. Their bright and modern Wynwood boutique is the perfect place to bring your girlfriends and truly feel like a bride as you play dress up. They carry some of the most unique and creative designers from around the world, and if you want something modern and young you are going to fall in love with everything in their store and never want to leave.
A&Bé Bridal Shop
A&Be is a modern boho lover’s dream. Also in Wynwood, this trendy shop is the place to find that dress you’ve saved on Pinterest and carries everything from lace, fringe, sequins, and simple and modern gowns you won’t find in your average bridal shop.
MIAMI WEDDING CAKES
Earth & Sugar
When it comes to wedding cakes in Miami, Earth & Sugar is truly the best. Their work is bright, colorful, and unique. Janderyn is a true artist who lets her creativity run wild and will surely create a masterpiece for your wedding day.
MIAMI WEDDING DJs & ENTERTAINMENT
Event Factor is a full-service entertainment company providing DJs, lighting, stages, and even live entertainment. They are experts at what they do and are a one-stop-shop to provide all your entertainment needs for your reception so you don’t have to sweat the details. And they know how to throw a good party, which we all know is important in Miami!
I hope this guide helps you navigate the crazy whirlwind that is wedding planning, and make it just a little bit easier for you! Choosing wedding vendors can be scary, but Miami is a city filled with so many creative professionals and these are just a few you can trust.
