Beautiful venue with a great view. We chose this venue because we were able to bring in our own vendors. However, please be warned the staff lacks professionalism, customer service and really made a negative impact on our overall experience. Not at all accommodating and the 2 hour setup and 2 hour breakdown time is unrealistic. They made our planning process extremely difficult and the only way to get any assistance is to pay for it, they nickel and dime you for every possible thing. Robert, the key holder was the absolute worst. The night of my wedding he closed the doors on our vendor and was extremely unreasonable. All to charge an extra hour of time.
Our wedding was spectacular thanks to OUR planning and vendors- however would not recommend for anyone else unless you are looking to spend a fortune and have to argue with the venue staff over every last detail. Make sure if you are planning to have your event here that you confirm the onsite police officer that you are forced to pay for, as ours was not seen once at our wedding. The Shane center needs to reevaluate who they have representing their venue.

My fiancé and I were on a tight budget and wanted a venue that would allow outside catering at a reasonable price. Of all the places we went to the Shane Center was by far the best. The outdoor area makes for a beautiful ceremony overlooking the intercostal and faces the sunset which makes for a beautiful backdrop. The reception hall is nice and spacious and worked perfectly for our needs. The ladies who work there (Diana and Michelle) are also very helpful and accommodating. The only downside for us was the limited area to take wedding photos but we made a quick run to the beach across the street to do that during the cocktail hour and it worked out perfectly! They also have no bridal suite so you will need a place to get ready. Despite those things though I don't think you will find better value for money than the Shane Center.

This venue is nice and a good price! The view is beautiful as it is on the bay side. However, you need to confirm the lighting and they are not flexible with setup time as its inconvenient for both the vendor and bride & groom.

We choose the Ronald Shane Center because it was on the water, near Miami Beach, it had an inside and outside area and it was in our price range. It's great for the price. THe place looked great, and was very clean. They allow you to come the day before for a free rehearsal, but they made us come during the at 2pm so that they other event that night could have time to set up. That was fine with me, but when we got there at our designated time, they were setting up in the area we were suppose to practice in so we had to wait 30 minutes for them to give us a 15 minute time period to practice when we were suppose to have 90 minutes. Other than that they were very responsive to my emails and answered all of my questions, especially Michelle. She was very easy to contact and work with. They were professional and let us come check the place out several times, showing us around each time. The place is a good size and allowed us to have our ceremony outside and the reception indoors. They do not have chairs for the outdoors and only have banquet chairs for the inside available. We ended up going with the banquet chairs, instead of ordering separate chiavari chairs and no one seemed to notice the difference. Good value for the price. I would recommend it.

From the first time we laid eyes on the Shane Center, my now husband and I knew this was where our wedding ceremony and reception would be held. We wanted a venue that was affordable, in a great location and not cookie cutter. This space was a winner and truly allowed us to create our own vision. Diana M. and Michelle A. the venue coordinators were awesome and attentive. Our wedding day was perfect! Thank you. -Mr. and Mrs. Toombs

I was very pleased with Diana and her team at Shane Center. Renting this venue is such a great value for such a stunning location. We had a big problem with parking on the day of (beachgoers park here leaving no spots for actual wedding guests) but it all worked out in the end. I was engaged for just under two years and Diana was amazing to work with during that time. She was responsive most of the time but we did have some email issues at some points only due to my emails to her bouncing back. There were, however, no issues when it came time to pull everything together. Overall, I was happy with my dealings with Shane. They allowed us to rehearse there the day before and we were able to store our decor there overnight for setup by our vendors the next day.
Shane is an amazing venue and I'll definitely be recommending it to any South Florida brides that I know.

Sorry about the parking, it is open to the public, but in the future if you ever feel worried about not having enough space for your guest, we do offer the choice to pay the city to reserve and block the spots for your special day.

The Ronald W. Shane Center was exactly what we were looking for. We wanted something on Miami Beach, but not on the beach, we wanted something that wasn't so ballroom. The Shane was a blank canvas with the space to have our ceremony and reception. It was easy to book, with no fuss. The service was great, they worked with my vendors and made my wedding a dream come true.

My only complaint would be parking, given we had our wedding on a Sunday evening, the parking lot is open to the public, there were beach goers parking in the lot which made it hard for my guest to park. My wedding officiant who is also my brother in law, stayed long enough to marry us but had to leave because he almost got a ticket and there wasn't enough parking space. The spaces eventually freed up after 8ish.

Overall they were easy to work with, quick and everything as far as cost was upfront and nothing was hidden.

As for parking it is open to the public and no meter after 6pm, but if you ever feel worried about not having enough space for your guest or your guest paying before 6pm, we do offer the choice to pay the city to reserve and block the spots for your special day.
