Ancient Spanish Monastery Wedding Guide

I’m going, to be honest, and say that perhaps I’m a bit biased about the Ancient Spanish Monastery as my husband and I hosted our wedding here over a decade ago.

Needless to say, I love this Miami wedding venue and I think it’s a hidden gem.

If you have been wondering if this is the right place to host your wedding, the following guide might help you with your decision.

Ancient Spanish Monastery Wedding Guide:

Venue Location:

16711 West Dixie Highway North Miami Beach, FL  33160

Located in the heart of North Miami, the Monastery is really close to the city of Aventura and approximately 30 minutes away from South Beach.

It’s important to notice that rush hour can be dense around the location, so you should factor in that if you are getting ready at a nearby hotel.

Wedding Ceremony & Reception Spaces The Monastery Offers:

The Spanish Monastery sits on 10 acres of land and the Cloisters feature over 8,000 square ft of space.

If you’re looking for an outdoor space, the Monastery has four different gardens that can accommodate wedding ceremonies and receptions of different sizes.

The Cloisters are perfect for wedding receptions that are outdoors, but still, covered just in case of rain, and for a dramatic look to wow your guests.

For ceremonies, in addition to the gardens, the Monastery offers a Chapel and a Charper House.
