A Seriously Unique Miami Wedding Venue: The Pérez Art Museum
Miami seaside weddings are usually known more for their laid-back, tiki-torch-lit vibe than for a sophisticated ambience. But the new Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) is a South Florida venue that offers both, combining the crisp minimalism of the visual arts with the waterfront setting of Biscayne Bay.
Start your celebration on the museum’s wraparound porch with portobello frites and spicy tuna crispy rice (chef Stephen Starr helms the kitchen), follow it with dinner in a coolly modernist portico opening onto the bay (pictured), and top the night off with dancing to a steel band. Guests can also explore the 200,000 square feet of avant-garde exhibits, including a fluorescent Mark Handforth work of a sunset that rivals the real thing (venue rental from $18,000 and reception rates from $215 per person).
As for filling out the rest of your wedding? Get inspired by these chic, only-in–South Florida details, and party in the city where the heat is on (we had to).
Host your rehearsal dinner at The Dutch and feast on chef Andrew Carmellini’s celebrated food, from peppery carbonara to fresh yellowtail crudo.
The Kelly Wearstler–designed Viceroy hotel has fabulous views of Biscayne Bay and a seriously happening pool scene, plus it’s just minutes away from PAMM (from $249 a night).
Capture minimalism’s quirky side with centerpieces from Plant the Future, a creative flower shop in the artsy Wynwood neighborhood.
Your BFFs will love orange-blossom-scented candles from The Webster, an Art Deco hotel–turned–designer boutique on South Beach ($70).
Give groomsmen a nod to the nautical with Miami-based Del Toro’s blue suede boat shoes—or go with their handsome velvet slippers ($320).
