Douglas Entrance

Timeless Elegance

Originally known as La Puerta Del Sol, “Gate of the Sun”, Douglas Entrance was one of the original entrances into the City of Coral Gables. Upon arriving you’re greeted by a beautiful, large fountain which can serve as the perfect backdrop for your ceremony. Cocktail hour can be held outdoors in front of the building’s façade or indoors along the Grand Staircase. Your reception can be hosted inside the ballroom which offers ornate, vaulted ceilings and large windows where natural light beams through.
