The Biltmore Hotel has announced a partnership with the Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau in a dream wedding contest, “Marry Me in Miami,” giving away a Miami wedding valued at nearly $150,000.
As one of the most renowned historic landmark hotels, the Biltmore offers a variety of extravagant ballrooms, complete with stunning views and European architectural influences — making it Miami’s premier site for extraordinary weddings.
Starting May 10, couples from across the U.S. may enter the contest and submit their love story by logging on to <www.MarryMeInMiami.com>. In June, five finalist couples will be selected randomly to visit Miami to compete for the grand prize in a “Wedding Day Challenge” obstacle course that will take place on June 22 on Miracle Mile in Coral Gables. The couple that wins the challenge will receive a wedding ceremony and reception for 125 guests on Oct. 9 at the Biltmore.
The Biltmore will join forces with premier wedding partners to plan and design a wedding set for true platinum status, including: celebrity wedding planner Jackie Ohh; wedding décor by Parrish Designs, Nuage Designs, Hitched Events and Uplyte; wedding cake by Elegant Temptations; entertainment by Michael Sarz; wedding photos by Rodrigo Varela; wedding video by Dream Video Production; transportation by Majestic Limousines; bridal dress by Daisy Tarsi; bridesmaids dresses by J. Del Olmo, and men’s tux by Bolado Clothiers.
In addition, the Biltmore will offer hotel accommodations for the wedding party, as well as spa and golf services for the bride and groom. The wedding celebration will culminate with a farewell champagne brunch at the Biltmore.
“This momentous wedding event is a new chapter in the Biltmore’s 85 years of history,” said Gene Prescott, president of the Biltmore Hotel. “The Biltmore sets the standard for Miami destination weddings and we are thrilled to host the winning couple at our resort for their special day.”
“Marry Me in Miami” is an initiative of the Miami Romance Month program embarking in June by the Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau. The program seeks to celebrate and promote Miami as the ideal city for destination weddings, commitment ceremonies, wedding shopping trips, bachelor/ette parties, proposals and honeymoons.
