For Every Celebration

Lifestyle, Miami, Weddings

When celebrating a special day or hosting a corporate event, we all want something extraordinary. Faena’s events team specializes in out-of-the-box experiences that are nothing short of unforgettable.


Faena’s restaurants and event spaces were designed by some of the most renowned artists of our time,” said Ashly Olivier, the Director of Catering and Special Events.

“No detail has been overlooked and it shows. The beauty of each space sets the tone for the event.”

La Cava at Faena Miami Beach is perfect for an intimate birthday party or business dinner. The candlelit centerpiece table from designer Frank Pollaro, created with actor Brad Pitt, is surrounded by hundreds of wine bottles sourced from all corners of the globe. Couples love to mark an anniversary under the gold-leaf dome and Damien Hirst unicorn at Pao by Paul Qui, while multigenerational families frequently host long-weekend reunions at the bohemian boutique hotel, Casa Faena.

The 43,000-square-foot Faena Forum, which was designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Rem Koolhaas’s Office of Metropolitan Architecture, is one of Miami’s most popular venues for extravagant weddings. “It is a large, unique, blank canvas that you can transform into your own personal masterpiece,” said Olivier. “No two weddings in the Forum look alike.”

In addition to the incredible architecture of the building, it is logistically ideal for a wedding. The ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner reception can all take place under one roof, each setting as beautiful as the next. “The Forum is very versatile,” she added. “Some brides love saying their vows encircled by their guests on the marble steps of our beautiful amphitheater, while others prefer the exquisite floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Indian Creek as a backdrop.”

What sets Faena apart is the convenience of having so many distinctive venues to choose from. Couples can have a beach wedding and a cocktail hour in the Mammoth Garden, a reception at the Faena Forum, and an after-party with a live band in the Faena Theater, where guest rooms are just steps away.

“Not only are our event spaces stylish and brilliantly designed,” Olivier explained, “but our clients also receive world-class cuisine and service that transcends the ordinary.”
