This is the best value in all of Miami! I was just married in December just after their million dollar renovation! Fabulous and my guests couldn't stop commenting on how beautiful the venue was :) responsiveness is alright Diana Herrera is great and helpful and will respond as soon as she can but between 12 and 2 pm it's veryyyyyy hard to reach her, still worth it!

Very beautiful place, enchanting and made all the pictures special. Do tell people ahead of time where the parking is etc. Traffic going to Miami Beach is a challenge so give amble time to arrive. One draw back at this place is that although you pay for an area of the garden, they will not close the garden for visitors. So we had people walking around all the time. They also had an event after our wedding and they started setting up before we were done. They promissed this wouldn't happen. Small things but important if you are paying $$$ and they don't hold their end of the deal.

I looked to rent the garden before they had started renovations. I was told they would be done two weeks before my wedding, and that was giving them extra time. I booked them anyway and was very pleased by the transformation. The gardens looked beautiful. I went the day before the wedding and the bathrooms were not complete. I was assured they would be done in time all they had to do was install the toilet and dividers. Come to find out on my wedding day the dividers were not put up. There were just two toilets on the floor! I was so embarrassed for all of my guests to see that. Plus they did not have a lock on the door so anyone can see you squatting when they opened the door! I contacted the director and she offered me a pass to a dinner! Great that makes up for it. I also had so many issues contacting the coordinator to ask her questions. It would take days to get a response. I would however recommend the gardens to someone else because I hope the bathrooms are fixed now. Communication is definitely a problem though.

Searching for a reception site for our wedding literally brought me to tears. Miami is expensive, especially for hotels and outdoor venues. Many of the outdoor venues are historical sites and have strict rules (like no glassware) and high prices. A coworker suggested I look at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden, which I didn't even know existed. I went and fell in love. The Banyan Room was PERFECT for our wedding of around 60 people and allowed us to have our reception outdoors in a private garden with the inside room as the backup in case of bad weather. They were very easy to work with, especially when we asked the week of our wedding to extend the reception an extra hour. (They said, "Sure!" And we paid via credit card over the phone.) We were also able to bring in an outside caterer. Many hotels required us to use their catering services and they had a food and beverage minimum of upwards of $10,000, which was ridiculous for only 60 people. I would HIGHLY recommend this venue both for its beauty AND affordability. I would definitely have an event there again.

A beautiful venue to hold an outdoor ceremony and/or reception. The Banyan room is a perfect backup plan for rain or to be used as a lounge area if the reception is outside. One of the most affordable venues in the Miami area. The reception area is very private. Perfect for smaller weddings!

We were VERY lucky to have booked the Botanical Gardens because of a cancellation for our date; they tend to book at even more than a year out, so make sure to check them out EARLY. We worked with Diana, and she was really great in helping us out through every step. She always responded back to any of our questions quickly, and even suggested some of the vendors that we used. The gardens are really beautiful, full of lush flowers and beautiful tropical plants. Their venue hosts great amenities, and our guests had such a wonderful time as many commented on the beauty of the location. If you like the background of gardens, then definitely look into the Miami Beach Botanical Gardens, but again, make sure you look into them EARLY!

The Botanical garden was perfect for our wedding, it was just absolutely beautiful.
The only drawback was the music level, apparently the neighbors will complain about loud music. We didn't get a complaint, because the music was low enough... but as a consequence, it wasn't loud enough in the reception room. Not a big deal though, if you are prepared ahead of time.
