I booked the Douglas Entrance through my amazing caterer, A Fancy Fiesta Production, and it was a great decision. The price was reasonable compared to other locations, it offered me outdoor ceremony (courtyard and fountain) and indoor reception space (to-die-for ballroom) and even a place for everyone to get ready. The venue itself carries so much history and is full of elegance and beauty - it was perfect for our special day.

The venue is gorgeous. It sets the tone for a very romantic wedding. Not only did we love it but our guests can't stop talking about it.

This was the only venue that my husband and I checked out after a recommendation from a friend. We had seen several other venues at other friends' weddings so we had something to compare it to. The venue was beautiful and takes to uplighting wonderfully. It definitely has a historic, romantic feel. We had our cocktail hour outside by the fountain (which can play music from a cd) and our reception in the ballroom. On top of everything else, it is very affordable compared to other venues in Miami. I would definitely recommend this venue.

This location at first was a compromise between my mother and I as I wanted modern chic and the overall look of the location is not that. I did and do find the location beautiful though. Over time I grew to love it and on the day of the wedding I realized I could not have had our wedding at a better location. The fountain and cocktail area was absolutely gorgeous, and with our decor, it came to life to totally be what I had envisioned. It was modern chic and perfect! Raul was always awesome although a little hard to reach at first (only at first, after our initial meeting and now after the wedding i can reach him in a heart beat) and on the day of the wedding the person left there to make sure all was well and be up to date on time was fantastic. I ended up going over in time by an hour and all I had to do was sign a paper there agreeing to it. I never felt pressured to leave or as if we were being watched like little kids and I really liked that we were given the option of how long the party would be that day. The bridal suite they let you use was extremely helpful for us. LOVED IT!

Doulgas Entrance is such a beautiful location. It is a historic land mark of Miami, right in the entrance to Coral Gables. It is in a private road with its own underground parking garage, so it makes it very convenient for the guests, and economical because I didn't have to hire car services. The outside area near the fountain was very clean and well maintained with the trees surrounding it. The staircase inside was the selling point for me. It is amazing!!! There is a beautiful chandilier hanging there also. The main room upstairs has the most beautiful ceiling work I have every seen. It is so ornate that you do not even have to go crazy decoration, because you don't want to take away from it.

Raul Araya, the events coordinator for Douglas Entrance was very helpful in answering my questions about the venue. My ceremony and reception were held at the venue and both turned out great. The only downfall with the venue was that I ordered ColdStone for my wedding and because the venue did not have a "traditional" freight elevator the slab could not make it up to the ballroom.
