When soon-to-be-weds dream of saying I do at an estate, they usually head to Vizcaya or Deering Estate. But Dr. David Fairchild’s former estate, Kampong Gardens, is more our jam. Fairchild was a famous horticulturalist and plant collector, so you can just imagine the natural beauty that grows all over this Coconut Grove enclave. A full reception can cost $6,000 in location fees, but if you’re just looking to exchange vows under The Wedding Tree a much smaller price tag ($475) is attached.
