Hello, beloved out-of-towners! We know traveling can be expensive and difficult, but here is some info to hopefully make it all a little easier. We really hope you consider coming out and celebrating with us- you mean so much to us, and it honestly will mean the world to have you there.
If that isn’t enough, consider the fact that it will be FEBRUARY and you will have an excuse to go to MIAMI. Let that sink in a moment. A visual.
Welcome dinner at Camp Owaissa-Bauer (17001 SW 264th Street Homestead, FL 33031). There will be toasts at this dinner, if you have a burning desire to say something, this is the event you can't miss. Come prepared or be inspired by the moment. Starting at 7:00 PM.
Wedding! (22727 SW 180 Court Miami, FL 33170). Please plan to arrive at 4:30pm.
Brunch. The celebration continues. Different kind of toast here. Will be at the Deering Estate (16701 SW 72 Avenue Miami, FL 33157) at 10:00 AM.
The cheapest way to get to Miami from New York City is usually on JetBlue flying into Fort Lauderdale airport (FLL), though by all means shop around for a good price. Flying into Miami International Airport (MIA) is closer to Homestead but tends to be pricey. Also, a note about traveling when most of the US is in winter: planes will have delays. Try to build some padded time into your flight itinerary with that in mind.
Miami is a driving city. While we can try to arrange for someone to pick you up at the airport, realistically you are probably going to want to rent a car. If cost is a concern, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to see if other people are looking for rental car buddies to double up (and split the cost) with.
While there are no shortage of hotels in South Florida, due to proximity to the wedding site (and to all the fun activities in our Scavenger Hunt!!!!!!!!) we recommend you book a room at one of these three hotels:
Remember: the sooner you book, the better the deals you'll get since this is the Miami busy season we're talking about.
We have a super special offer for those of you looking for a cheap lodging alternative. We will be renting out a dorm-style cabin at Camp Owaisa Bauer for two nights for only $50/person. That's right, $50/ person! If you want to learn more about this Mui/Gorgas exclusive offer please email us.
You are all cordially invited to the rehearsal dinner/pizza party on Friday Feb 20, 7pm at the wedding site. There will also be a picnic brunch the day after the wedding, Sunday Feb 22 at 10 am, by the bay on the beautiful Deering Estate grounds, which we hope you will join us for before everyone scatters away to their lives once more.
While Miami is a tourist town with no shortage of activities, we hope you will join us for a special adventure we’ve created just for the wedding.
