The Ancient Spanish Monastery

The Ancient Spanish Monastery

Tucked away to the north of the city of Miami is St. Bernard De Clairvaux Church, an ancient Spanish monastery that is a magical location for your engagement shoot. The monastery was constructed in the 12th century, though it has since been rebuilt and restored, and is surrounded by gardens and ancient trees. 

When you first see the stone monastery with its breathtaking Gothic architecture, you’ll feel like you’ve stumbled upon something lost in time. Its 20 acres of formal gardens boast rare palms, Spanish oaks, banyans, and flowering trees all woven into the landscaping to make an unforgettable experience. The cloisters, which are covered passageways that line the courtyard, are filled with interesting details and lighting that is sure to bring your photos to life. 

Set beneath the wandering branches of Spanish oaks and palms, the landscaping weaves together the sacred and the natural seamlessly for an ambiance that is simply breathtaking. Ivy-covered walls, fountains from medieval Spain, and formal manicured hedges add even more detail and texture to this enchanting location. 

Each backdrop is romantic, from the twisting trunks of the oaks to the white pillars of the cloister. For a couple who loves the medieval and ethereal, this makes a delightful spot for Miami engagement photography.
