Bride and Groom kissing on the Beach at The Palms Hotel

Bride and Groom Kissing on the beach at The Palms Hotel in Miami Beach FL

Here is the link: The Palms Hotel, Miami Beach

This wedding photo was taken on the beach at The Palms Hotel in Miami Beach, Florida. If you re planning a Miami Beach wedding or Elopement then you should visit the Palms. More on this later.

There is a reason why Miami Beach is such a popular wedding destination. Awesome weather, beautiful beaches, a fantastic nightlife and some of the best restaurants on the planet make South Florida the most popular place for upscale destination weddings. When driving down Collins Ave you can’t help but take in all the beautiful hotels. Some of these wedding hotels are modern, others look vintage, and when you drive into South Beach many become Art Deco. For a newly engaged couple South Florida is the wedding capital of the world!

Just think about it, you can spend the days leading up to your wedding hanging on the beach and jumping in the waves, by the way, the ocean water here is warm! Like a bathtub. Sure California also has a beautiful beach and many hotels. But have you tried to get into the water in LA? It helps if you have a wetsuit.

After spending a day on the beach, you can spend you evening dining in some of Miami’s fantastic restaurants. Don’t want to spend a fortune dining? Miami has a range of low priced and very high priced dining options. Take you pick and enjoy.

It really doesn’t matter if you are having a large 200 person wedding or a simple elopement for two. Getting married in South Florida is going to be a great time.

For some spending every day on the beach may not be their cup of tea. In South Florida that’s fine also. Here you will find many beautiful museums, parks, and woodlands. Don’t believe me? Check out Vizcaya, or drive north to Delray Beach and visit the Morikami Japaneses Gardens. By the way, both Vizcaya and the Morikami Gardens are both fantastic wedding venues. I have shot many weddings and elopements in both places. Want to do some shopping? don’t forget Worth Ave, which is the Rodeo Drive of Florida.

One of the more popular hotels is The Palms Hotel. That’s where this photo was taken. You can see how beautiful the beach is in this photo. After the ceremony, which actually happened under the Palms Hotel gazebo on their manicured courtyard this, couple and I took a walk to the beach for some in the sand bride and groom photos.

While posing the pictures I loved how the ocean curved in giving me a spot to place the bride and groom with some ocean behind them while still showing the hotels in the background. Mother nature really gave me the perfect environment and scene to take this photo.

Over the years shooting weddings at The Palms I have found that this wedding hotel is perfect for all kinds of weddings. I have shot small elopements and large weddings with 170 + people both at this hotel.
