The Biltmore is one of the classiest and most iconic Miami wedding venues and is a property Muñoz Photography frequents on a monthly basis. They are consummate professionals when it comes to hosting weddings and they really know how to make couples feel special and relax on their big day. The expansive and luxurious hotel is situated in upscale Coral Gables, just minutes from downtown Miami and the beach. The property grounds are rich with incredible Mediterranean architecture, which paints the most perfect backdrop for photography of our brides, grooms, and their loved ones. We love any opportunity to photograph weddings at The Biltmore, as the scenery and staff are equally amazing.
Our Favorite Spaces on the Property
If you’re looking for a wedding space with classic arches, giant fountains, and neutral tones, The Biltmore's courtyard is one amazing spot. As South Florida luxury wedding photographers, this Spanish-style courtyard makes it easy to capture your fairy tale wedding. We shoot on the staircase, in between the arches and in front of the fountain during either the daytime or evening. We can even get creative with various angles, as the courtyard consists of balconies, staircases, and more.
The Back Lawn offers a unique outdoor location featuring the Biltmore’s tower, which is a replica of the Giralda Tower of the Seville Cathedral in Spain. This tower can serve as the backdrop of your ceremony and its photos, while the opposite side of it opens to a sweeping lawn of pristine grass and gently rolling hills. From a photographer’s perspective, this location allows our couples to have a beautiful combination of natural and architectural backgrounds in their wedding album. The patio’s surface area also makes it easy to erect umbrellas to either block the sun or rain for the ceremony.
If you really want to impress your guests, throw your cocktail hour on the southwest terrace overlooking one of the largest pools in North America. Not only is it a favorite among guests, but it gives your wedding day a fun and swanky ambiance. The hotel’s glamorous design and the crystal clear water serve as a backdrop for more photos, and it's a really cool location for entertaining guests.
The golf fountain is a classic ceremony location. Its stunning fountains, pathways, and greenery make it a fun shooting location with a hint of European style and natural beauty. They also have several ballrooms that can transform into any fairy tale scene imaginable and their friendly staff is more than capable of making your dreams a reality.
Amenities and Wedding Services
The Biltmore Coral Gables is known for its high-end accommodations, friendly and hospitable staff, and excellent amenities and services. The property is ideal for larger weddings as it can accommodate up to 450 guests with five different ceremony/reception locations. The hotel also offers a restored 5-star championship golf course, tennis courts, a European Spa, a modern fitness center, and the largest hotel pool on the East Coast.
The staff are experts at transforming their spaces into wedding day fairy tales. They can help you decorate with specialty linens, flowers, and lights and offer a large photo library for inspiration, too. And if you don’t have a wedding planner, The Biltmore can take care of that for you as well.
When it comes to the food at your wedding, the culinary team allows couples to either select sample menus or customize their own alongside the chef. They can accommodate vegetarians, vegans, and any other dietary needs/preferences you desire. Many of their menus are inspired by their Five Diamond French Restaurant, Palme d’Or.
