The Bonnet House Museum & Garden is a beautiful Fort Lauderdale wedding venue located on a barrier island with the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the Intracoastal Waterway to the west; a span of 35 acres with an exquisite flora and fauna outdoor garden setting. The Bonnet House’s modern history began when Birch gave the Bonnet House property as a wedding gift to his daughter Helen and her husband, Chicago artist Frederic Clay Bartlett, in 1919. Since then, this estate embodies old-world charm and an understated elegance. With its beautiful tropical and subtropical plants and its proximity to downtown Fort Lauderdale, Bonnet House has become a favorite destination. Whether you are planning a small and intimate gathering or a grand and lavish affair, Bonnet House sets the scene for romance, timeless memories, and saying “I do.”

The Curtiss Mansion is a unique and charming historic residence. This nationally registered mansion, built in 1925, was the home of Glenn Hammond Curtiss (“The Father of Aviation”) and his beloved wife Lena. The Mansion also became available for historic, cultural, educational, recreational, social, civic, and other community uses. It’s located just north of Miami International Airport in the beautiful city of Miami Springs, founded by Curtiss. With distinctive architectural details, a rich history, and verdant tropical landscaping, it’s the perfect setting for any engaged couple looking for an unforgettable and personalized experience. Whether it’s for a large or intimate indoor or outdoor crowd, with a courtyard reception and an unforgettable ceremony, a ceremony is held for the bride as she walks down a romantic bridge with her escort that leads her under an elegant stone archway, where she’ll meet up with her groom and kiss him after exchanging vows.
