Dream Wedding posted 2/18/2014 (modified 2/19/2014)

Planning a wedding is difficult, but planning a wedding in another state makes the process exceptionally difficult. Before I was able to go see Cocoplum, I sent my mom and mother-in-law to go look, and they both loved it. After speaking with Rosie, I knew that this was the place. Rosie was so amazing, as was the rest of the staff. When my husband and I moved back here, Rosie worked around our schedule and helped with all the small intricate details that are easily forgotten. The personalization, help, and attention to detail made my wedding day, the best day ever. I cannot imagine how other brides are able to do and remember everything, and I know that I would never want to imagine having to. Rosie and the staff at Cocoplum ensured that on my wedding day, I wasn't worried about a thing, and I wasn't. Not only is Rosie and her staff amazing, but all the vendors associated with Cocoplum were amazing and so wonderful to work with.

The best day of my life! 1/25/2014 posted 2/6/2014 (modified 2/7/2014)

What can I say? I fell in love with The Cocoplum from the moment I stepped foot on the property. I turned and looked at my mother and best friend, "It is beautiful, I want to get married here!" And it happened. Rosie and Guille were so amazing from start to finish. I can not thank them enough for everything they did. Rosie sat with me whenever I needed and walked me through every single detail that you do not even think about. The DJ was great, the food was delicious, and the service as extraordinaire!!! When I walked in everyone attended to me. Their entire staff was so nice and humble that I felt like a princess. Honestly, I could not have asked for a better wedding. Everyone went above and beyond our expectations. I felt so great afterwards that I went back in person to thank them. Rosie if you read this Manny and I want thank you again!

Fairytale Day posted 10/8/2013

I had the most amazing time and service provided by the Cocoplum women's club. Every girl dreams of what her wedding will be like and the stress that comes with it. Thanks to Rosie I was able to cut the stress down by a lot! She always made me feel at ease and gave me amazing ideas that actually made my wedding so special and a night to remember.

From start to finish she was there guiding me along the way. She was also able to set me up with amazing vendors that are all included in the price. The day of the wedding I wasn't worried about the way things would turn on because I knew Rosie would handle it. She even managed to hold off the rain for our outdoor ceremony! I walked in to a beautiful outdoor ceremony and an even prettier reception. It was everything I could imagine. My friends and family are still talking about it to this day! They speak of how much fun they had, the delicious food as well as the beauty of the place. There is no way anyone could go wrong by going here! I would do it again in a heartbeat!

wonderful and beautiful posted 11/4/2013 (modified 11/5/2013)

Everyone was very helpful, patient and kind. They really did a wonderful job helping to make our daughter's wedding reception special and beautiful. Everything went off without a hitch. The food was wonderful, the atmosphere elegant and just right. They took care of so many things so I didn't have to do anything once we arrived except greet our guests and enjoy the evening.

You don't have to use their vendors (florist, etc.) but the ones they work with are very good and it really helps to narrow down the very wide field of vendors to choose from which can be dizzying considering how many different things go into a wedding reception. The fact that they provide a small selection of quality vendors from which to choose helps make things a lot easier.

They dress it up to make everything look just right. We checked out other venues in the area and they were either outrageously expensive or the location was less than desireable.

Overall it was a wonderful, lovely and very special evening.

From start to finish, the experience I had with Cocoplum was amazing. There vendors were fantastic to work with, and the staff at Cocoplum made the wedding flow without a hitch.

Even when I wanted to surprise my wife to be with a salsa band, they did everything possible to coordinate and keep it a secret from her, and her expression when the curtains opened up to reveal the band was priceless!

I fell in love with this venue from the first time I saw it. It has a romantic,elegant, and very private look to it. Working with Rosie and her staff was an absolute pleasure. I had a destination wedding and could only meet a couple times before the wedding, but they made sure to make the planning process as smooth as possible. The day of the wedding they were very organized and everything ran smoothly. The food was amazing! The DJ was great! I felt like a celebrity. They really catered to our every need. I would highly recommend this venue and Rosie and her staff.

Venue of my dreams posted 8/24/2013

From the moment I saw the Cocoplum in pictures I knew this was the place I wanted my wedding reception to be in, however I did not think I could ever afford such a beautiful venue. With this in mind I scheduled an appointment with Rossie and after meeting with her I knew I didn't need to look any further. From day one Rossie and her staff made themselves available to help me with everything. They always listened to my ideas and found ways to make the wedding as unique and beautiful as possible. I used all of the vendors that the Cocoplum offered and could not be happier that I did. The day of the wedding I had the peace of mind of knowing that everything would go according to plan and that I did not need to worry about a thing as I had seen Rossie and her staff in action for other weddings. Words cannot explain how beautiful the venue looked the night of our wedding, it was everything I had hoped for and more. The flowers which were prepared by Marta were better than what I had imagined, they had organized everything the way I had asked and the whole venue was filled with candles. The music and the food were to die for, the chef knew what my concerns were with the meal and gave me suggestions and made changes to accommodate my requests and the DJ (JP) made sure he had everyone dancing all night. As my mom said the wedding was better than we ever had expected and even though we worked extremly hard to have the wedding we would not have been able to do it if it wasn't for the help of all of the Cocoplum staff. Everyone who attended my wedding has continued to say how amazing the wedding came out and how beautiful everything looked. I would recommend the cocoplum with my eyes closed.

Best Venue in Miami posted 8/20/2013

I had my wedding at the Cocoplum on October 8, 2011. From the beginning, Rosie was attentive and supportive and listened to all my ideas, making suggestions and using her extensive experience in the event planning industry to make my dream wedding come true. When we arrived at the Cocoplum, it was as though everything that I imagined my wedding to be like materialized before me - not a single detail was missed. The all inclusive package is the best deal in Miami - and luxury is not spared for the sake of affordability. The food was superb (thanks to their amazing chef, which you will meet at the food tasting), the flowers were to die for (thanks to Marta who loves what she does), cake was delicious, DJ played great music, and everything - from linens to table layouts to candles and photos - were laid out exactly as I requested. Vinnie saw to it that my husband and I were attended to the entire night. From the moment we arrived, he greeted us with a huge umbrella (my wedding was blessed with an all day torrential downpour - we will have luck for the rest of our lives, they say, lol) and he brought us hors d'oeuve's and our favorite drinks while we hid out waiting for our guests to settle in. The entire night flowed smoothly and according to plan thanks to Rosie and Vinnie. To date, our guests often mention how this was the best wedding they have ever been to, and I could not have done it without the amazing staff at the Cocoplum. If we could do it all over again, we would not change a single thing.

Rosie and the Coco Plum were truly the perfect venue for us. Living in Washington, D.C. we were concerned about how difficult it would be to plan a wedding long distance, but Rosie and the Coco Plum staff made sure to help us plan everything in advance. Everytime we were in town Rosie had multiple appointments set up for us that made it easy to make decisions quickly. When we weren't in town she worked with my mother and sister to make sure everything was perfect the day of.

The best part I think was how EVERYTHING was in house. Including my photographer the amazing Marcio Cavalcanti. I didn't have to stress about having to book a separate caterer either because their chef was so amazing. I heard nothing but compliments about how beautiful the venue was and how delicious the food was. One of my friends said she is stealing everything from my wedding for her own, including the venue!

Oh it also has to be mentioned that their coordinator the day of is amazing and will keep you on schedule while still letting you enjoy yourself. Before the party even starts you get a room to yourselves to eat all of the appetizers and relax, something you WILL need the day of.

Best decision! posted 8/9/2013

We can't thank the Coco Plum enough! It was an unforgettable night. My husband and I didn't have to worry about anything and just enjoy our family & friends. Vinny and the team were great and kept us at ease. The room was gorgeous, more beautiful than I imagined. Rosie was great throughtout the planning and helped us a lot, you can tell she really loves what she does and is very detailed. Everyone had a great night, many people told us it was the best wedding they have ever attended.

Thank you once again! I recommend the Coco Plum to any bride I meet! :)

Elegant Wedding posted 2/25/2013

If you are looking for a beautiful, historic "old Florida" vibe, then the CocoPlum is definitely the place to go. My fiance and I instantly fell in love with the setting - high wood ceilings and the beautiful Cuban tile. Rosie and her staff were extremely helpful and kind, and also very accommodating to our ideas and traditions. On the wedding day, every little detail was set up perfectly. The food was very good too! We heard nothing but compliments from our guests. Our wedding turned out exactly as I pictured it - classy, romantic, and elegant. I highly recommend the CocoPlum, with lots of confidence!

Everything i expected and more... posted 12/27/2012 (modified 12/27/2012)

So a couple of months i married my best friend in the most amazing place! I really don't know where to start because everything was beyond my expectations..The cocoplum for us was comfort, romance, elegance, friendliness, but overall we felt like they really cared about our wedding, Rosie was a true guidance throughout the wedding from head to toe she took care of everything making sure everything was on time, always with a smile and answering all our questions, she really made us feel comfortable. As far of the actual day of the wedding everything was amazing, the food by Fernando was excellent, the Organization was on time, Pictures by Marcio were beautiful, the flowers by Martha were fresh and nice! the music by JP was just what i asked for, and the waiters were so kind to me and my family i really couldn't ask for more, I am truly grateful to God that he put Rosie and her crew in our path i really can't imaging getting married anywhere else, After so many bad experiences looking for our dream wedding we were able to find The Cocoplum and we are truly satisfied. Our guest were also satisfied and very pleased, they kept complementing everything in the place jeje
Oh! And one last thing I want to mention before i finish is that when we went to do our tasting it took me back to my mom’s cooking and that was just priceless. :) S & C

Very happy Bride & Groom posted 10/18/2012

CocoPlum Woman's Club was an amazing venue to hold our wedding. The quality of the food- from appetizers to the dinner- were amazing! Rosie and her entire staff were pleasant, understanding, charming and flexible. They genuinely cared about all the details for the wedding and took the time to answer my one thousand questions, whether via email or by phone. The night of the wedding, everyhting cam out perfect. I could not have asked for anything more.All I had envisioned became a reality. The overall package they offer is really good. The upgrades are even better. They are also very flexible with the things you want to incorporate in the room and cocktail hour. We were very impressed and overall SUPER happy with everything. We are so happy that we choose the Coco Plum. We loved our wedding.

Beautiful! posted 5/31/2012

I loved this venue! It is gorgeous and does not need much decoration. It'll fit in perfectly if you're having a vintage, glamorous, or ballroom themed wedding. The Coco Plum staff was very helpful and decorated everything just as I wanted it and it looked as beautiful as I imagined. The total cost for my wedding was less than I thought I'd spend in comparison to other weddings I've been to at more expensive venues. You get a lot for your money, (cake, tables, linens, photography, food, drinks, dj, and even flowers)....I ended up upgrading some things in my package, but the overall cost for even the upgrades was very reasonable. I had a great time at my wedding, and would definitely recommend this venue. Everything was beautiful! Only reason I did not give 5 stars was due to the contract being a bit confusing, but hopefully they have fixed it since.
