MIAMI, FLA. –June 28, 2017 – Couples committed to the Jewish faith will find solace in the exacting oversight provided by The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach, a trusted Miami Beach venue for Kosher weddings. The exquisite oceanfront property, centrally located near synagogues and shuls, provides a dedicated wedding specialist, who serves as a liaison with Kosher catering partners, ensuring all traditions are honored to the utmost degree. And in true Ritz-Carlton fashion, exclusivity is tantamount.

“Every bride wants a storybook wedding, but when kosher adherence is part of the couple’s story, the level of execution is imperative,” said Director of Catering Sales Felicia Wichser. “From check-in to check-out, no detail is overlooked at our property. We provide a comfort level to the couples and their entire family as to keep the focus on the celebration.”

The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach offers luxurious wedding venues and outdoor settings, including the coveted Starr Bar, all of which can accommodate over 500 guests at a time. Access to the 10,000-square-foot ballroom is one stairwell level up, accommodating guests who refrain from using the elevator and electricity. On the culinary front, Kosher catering includes Orthodox Union certified, while place settings feature Kosher china, crystal stemware and signature silver. Additionally, there are ample rooms for Ketubah signing, men's Tish and Bedeken.

An elite roster of event designers and florists provide fresh concepts for couture Chuppahs, the canopy under which the couple stands during the ceremony. Meanwhile, best known of all the rituals associated with Jewish weddings—“Breaking the Glass”—will be front and center. While it’s customary for the groom to stomp on glass, both members, including same-sex couples, have been partaking in the festivities together.
