Spring deliciousness

Picnics evolved from the elaborate traditions of outdoor feasts enjoyed by the wealthy. Medieval hunting feasts and Renaissance era country banquets can be credited with laying the foundation of the outdoor dining experiences we enjoy today. The history of picnicking is credited to the Europeans, and nowadays people all around the world enjoying participating in these leisurely outings. On romantic and family picnics a picnic basket and a blanket are usually brought along. Outdoor games or some other form of entertainment are common at large picnics [source]

Marry in the Grove

I recently started working for this unique hotel in Coconut Grove, called the Mutiny Hotel. The property is overlooking  the beautiful Biscayne Bay and has a lot of history behind it. We like to think that if walls could talk, ours would tell an epic story…

In 1969, The Mutiny Hotel opened its doors for the first time, epitomizing the party atmosphere prevalent in the Grove in the 1970’s & 1980’s, and was the hotel of choice among the international jet-set, Hollywood celebrities, music industry icons and sport legends.

  

The Mutiny Hotel‘s elegant atmosphere and location in Coconut Grove makes it the perfect venue for a romantic wedding. Choose The Mutiny‘s intimate outdoor courtyard, surrounded by a melodic waterfall and lush tropical gardens to host your dream wedding. Our outdoor terrace inspires passion, while the Bounty Room, which opens directly onto the terrace, is an ideal setting for a cocktail reception and dinner.

In the Country

More personal than a banquet hall, country weddings can be some of the most beautiful and inventive of all. Maybe it’s the mix of informality and elegance, the day-to-day and the once-in-a-lifetime, or how impressive it is to see a place so transformed. Regardless, let these ideas stimulate your imagination to dream up your singular celebration.
