Birch State Park
Located across the street from Ft. Lauderdale’s most infamous beach, this picturesque park features mature trees that canopy every turn. Birch is an ideal setting for the boho-chic bride or the rustic-beardtoting groom looking for a natural woodsy location in the heart of the big city. This park’s pride and joy is the banyan tree that Mr. Birch planted over 120 years ago! The tree creates ample shade from the South Florida heat and provides a gorgeous back drop for any dress or color scheme. Surrounded by two large open fields, a sand volley ball court, a playground, restroom, parking and three pavilions this is the ideal location for large parties or can be made intimate for close family weddings. Under the tree your ceremony can hold up to 250 guests and a fully decorated arch or chuppah. No need to go far after the ceremony, you may set up your reception in one of the two open areas around the tree to continue your outdoor vibe. With lights crisscrossing overhead you and your guests will feel as though they left the city and are dancing under the stars deep in the country.
