Updated: Apr 10

Miami, a city known for its glitz, glamour, and vibrant culture, recently witnessed a birthday celebration like no other. In the heart of the Magic City, at the iconic Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, friends and family from around the globe came together to celebrate the 40th birthday of Sunil Amin in opulent style. He celebrated this significant milestone in style, by throwing an unforgettable birthday party that left guests in awe.

Sunil Amin, a native of Vancouver, Canada, and his wife, Katie Amin, originally from New York, moved to Miami in the fall of 2019 and were excited to showcase the new city that they call home to their family and friends. Sunil, a gastroenterologist, and Katie, a urogynecologist, are each well-renowned physicians at the University of Miami and parents of Maya (4) and Zian (2). With imprints from a geographically diverse past, the family was joined by 120 guests of family, friends, and colleagues locally from Miami as well as London, Los Angeles, New York, Boston, Wyoming, Texas and so on.

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, with its timeless beauty and historic significance, provided the perfect backdrop for this extravagant celebration. Nestled on the shores of Biscayne Bay, the mansion's Italian Renaissance architecture and lush gardens were transformed into a private oasis of luxury.

Guests were transported into a Great Gatsby-inspired world from the moment they set foot on the grand Vizcaya estate. The outdoor courtyard was adorned with cascading floral arrangements, twinkling grande chandelier, and golden accents that added an air of regal elegance. And the culinary experience was a gastronomic journey that combined international flavors with local influences.

Entertainment at this soirée was nothing short of exceptional. A live jazz band set the tone with sultry melodies, while a DJ spun contemporary beats that had the guests on their feet. Acrobatic contortionist and hula hoop performers added a touch of drama and excitement to the night. And the birthday honoree was treated to a few surprises, including an energetic hora loca in true Miami fashion and a grandiose birthday cake feature.

This exceptional 40th birthday celebration at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens was a way for the hosts - local physicians, Sunil and Katie Amin - to bring their loved ones together in the city where they have now planted their roots for a long and hopeful future ahead in South Florida. The stunning venue, breathtaking decor, world-class entertainment, and gourmet cuisine created an unforgettable night and an ode to Miami hospitality. Surrounded by loved ones who had traveled from afar, the birthday man was undoubtedly touched by the love and grandeur of this celebration. Miami knows how to throw a party, and this Vizcaya soirée was a shining example of its prowess in creating unforgettable memories.
