For close to two decades, photographer Carlos Osorio has been preserving family memories at Miami Photo. He has documented more than 400 weddings, and his laid-back, journalistic style has been published in numerous media. Assisted by his wife Sandra, Osorio earned one of WeddingWire.com's Bride's Choice awards in 2009, 2010, and 2011. He turns brides' special days into prints at his own professional lab and converts images into products such as coffee-table albums, canvas prints, or high-resolution vinyl siding. Osorio also captures family portraits, parties, and quinceaňeras, and restores precious photos damaged by the passage of time.
Located in the newly restored historic Coral Gables Country Club, Liberty Caffe serves freshly baked pastries, crisp salads, and local Florida orange juice. Behind a lit glass case stuffed with crisp salads and buttery croissants, baristas pour foamy cappuccinos at the coffee bar and scoop cups of house-made gelato made from traditional Italian recipes and garnished with fresh strawberries and hazelnuts. Diners can slide into tables facing a row of open, arched windows overlooking the country club's manicured landscape of green grass, swaying palm trees, and fist-shaking groundskeepers.

Al Carbon translates to "the process of cooking meat over charcoal," and the grill masters at the eatery use that cooking method to create some of their most popular dishes. They're particularly known for their stuffed burgers, which are made from regular or grass-fed beef and cooked on a wood charcoal grill. The Hawaiian is stuffed with swiss and caramelized pineapples, and Nana's Favorite encases mushrooms, goat cheese, arugula, and cranberry mayo. Al Carbon's craft beers are the other main draw, and patrons can sip them while gazing at the eatery's urban-inspired art, which is more colorful than the FCC's list of banned words.
