Yesterday, I visited Villa Vizcaya, which was built in 1916 as the winter home of James Deering, co-founder of International Harvester. Sometimes called the “Hearst Castle of the East,” this magnificent villa brings you back to the days of the Great Gatsby. I was particularly interested to see the ten acres of gardens that surround the house and the orchidarium.
Here are a few photos of the grounds of Villa Vizcaya. I think I counted six brides having their wedding photos taken on Saturday.
