Weddings & Receptions
Whether you dream of a traditional, contemporary, non-denominational, inter-faith or civil ceremony, the wedding staff at the Ancient Spanish Monastery will help you create your own unique memorable wedding service with beauty, warmth and grace.
With three beautiful Chapels to choose from your wedding can be tailored to your budget, the size of your wedding party, and the number of guests. All fees include a one-hour ceremony
and half an hour for pictures.
The Main Chapel is perfect for weddings with up to 150 guests. The rental fee includes the organist and pipe organ.
The Chapter House is a smaller Chapel which seats up to 80 guests. The rental fee includes the organist and portable keyboard.
The French Altar is an intimate Chapel for up to 10 guests.
Unlike any other South Florida location, the formal gardens of the Ancient Spanish Monastery showcase over 20 acres of rare palms, Spanish oaks, cycads, banyans, flowering trees, and much more. The landscaped grounds, with the 12th century Romanesque and Gothic building as a backdrop, will make for an unforgettable event.
There are five outdoor spaces for weddings: The Loggia, Prayer Well, Banyan Tree, Saviour Garden, and St. John Garden. The Gardens can accomodate up to 300 guests.
Receptions may be held in the Cloisters (which are the covered passageways that surround an open courtyard), the Loggia or the Gardens. The rental fee is for a three-hour reception. Each additional hour is $500 and may go as late as 12:30 am.
A three-hour reception may also be held in the Gardens or Loggia. Additional hours may be purchased for $500 per hour. An added benefit of holding your event at The Ancient Spanish Monastery is the ability to bring your chosen team of caterers, florists and decorators.
A cocktail hour may be held in the Gardens or Loggia prior to dinner and dancing for $800.
