The Ritz-Carlton, Key Biscayne

Miami, Florida, United States

At The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, the Atlantic Ocean provides a striking backdrop for weddings and receptions. Outside venues include the Grand Lawn and Fountain Courtyard, connected by an elegant stone staircase, and the Mediterranean-inspired Dune Oceanfront Lounge.

The Ritz-Carlton Ballroom offers the largest venue and includes floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the ocean and a spacious terrace ideal for cocktail hour. With grand chandeliers and floor-to-ceiling windows facing the ocean, the 10,000 square-foot luxury ballroom is the largest ocean-view ballroom of any South Florida resort and opens onto a spacious, outdoor, oceanfront terrace that is ideal for hosting a balmy open-air reception.

Adjacent to the Grand Ballroom, the Ocean View Foyer’s stunning pre-reception and cocktail space spans 60 feet that opens onto an oceanfront outdoor terrace overlooking the Gazebo Lawn and Atlantic Ocean. At the Oceanfront Lawn, couples can dig their toes in the sand and say “I do” with a breathtaking wedding on Crandon Beach, named among America’s Top Ten Beaches. Located directly in front of the calming Atlantic Ocean, you’ll feel worlds away in this stunning, natural setting. The resort can also arrange for a Shoe Butler, who can provide guests personalized flip flops, while safe-keeping their dress shoes during the ceremony.

Designed with simplicity and elegance, the Grand Lawn is a large, oval, perfectly manicured area that commands center stage between the ocean and the hotel, offering sweeping vistas of the beach and ocean. A stone staircase connects the Grand Lawn to the resort’s Fountain Courtyard, allowing the bride to make a stylish, grand entrance to her wedding ceremony or reception. The Fountain Courtyards lush hedging, beautiful fountains and views of the Grand Lawn leading out to the Atlantic Ocean create a fairytale-like setting for welcome receptions, pre- and post-wedding brunches or a grand ceremonial entrance for the bride.
