We just had our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception at the Woman's Club. Leslie and Rudy were incredibly helpful throughout the process. Leslie was very flexible in changing the packages to accommodate our vision. We changed the menu multiple times and it never seemed to be a bother. Also, Leslie was quite willing to meet in person and took a great deal of time ensuring that we were comfortable with the decisions we were making.

The biggest negative was the lack of attention to details in the documentation and pricing. The prices add up FAST. There's added charges for nearly everything (draping around the windows, candles on the fireplace, etc.). It took a lot of maneuvering and asking to forgo certain things in exchange for others, but as I said, Leslie was super accommodating to these requests. The pricing was difficult to follow, and we had multiple drafts going on and we had a hard time understanding what was the most up to date. It takes a lot of legwork to make sure all the details are being documented.

The space is beyond beautiful. Beyond the hardwood floors and the gorgeous chandeliers, the selling point was really the carte blanche "dogs allowed". We have two large dogs (70 and 80 pounds each) and kept getting told that it would be impossible to find a space that would allow them to be present beyond the ceremony. Not only were they allowed to be a part of the ceremony, but they were able to stay the entire night through the reception (and were quite the life of the party).

Can't say enough about the catering. It was BEYOND delicious. We had three stations of food and the presentation was gorgeous. The food was out of this world - really can't say enough for that. Plus, the wait staff was superb - always friendly and cheerful and willing to help out in whatever capacity.

Throughout the planning process, Leslie was great! She was very responsive to our emails and always accommodated our visits when we came in from out of town. Similarly, Tim, who supervised our event, was phenomenal! I cannot say enough good things about him. He really did everything in his power to work with our caterers to make our event a success. Everything was beautiful and the space looked incredibly romantic. Everyone complimented us on our unique venue selection. It really was worth the expense and the staff at Coconut Grove Events was superb. Highly recommended!

We spent a lot of time trying to find the perfect venue that would be unique, elegant, special and cozy - not your typical ballroom. We LOVED this venue, as did our guests. It's not easy to find a historical building in Miami. The Woman's Club is cozy and beautiful in its simplicity. Leslie Rowe and her team were very professional and helped make the event run smoothly. They provided the venue, draping on the ceiling (which was key), lighting throughout and the parking attendant. The draping and lighting were crucial to set the mood. The venue is beautiful, but it needs some touches to make it stand out a bit more... and on 'value' I put 4 stars only because the "touches" each cost quite a bit. It's important to be conscious of the fact that the venue rental fee is one thing, but you'd have to add all the extras (which can really add up). We brought an outside wedding planning/catering company/florist, but Leslie Rowe did offer a great and competitive package. I'd do it here again in a heartbeat.. I'm still in love with "our" special venue.

We were looking for a place that would match the rustic vibe we were going for and we definitely found it. This place is beautiful. The wood floor and beams and the fireplace are perfect for a vintage/rustic wedding. The event coordinator, Erika was amazing. She made sure everything went perfect. Our wedding went on without any glitches thanks to Erika. At the end of the night the staff packed to go containers for me and the groom. The place is pet friendly so my husband surprised me by including our yorkie in the wedding. Erika even made sure Bentley (Yorkie) had something to eat and drink. The guests have not stopped talking about the food. Everything was beautiful.
