Lindsay & David | We looked at all wedding venues in St. Augustine and River House, by far, had everything that we were looking for in a ceremony and reception location. It is such a unique building and location. It creates the feel of a private home with spectacular views. Here are a few reasons why to use River House: Parking! Anyone who has been to St. Augustine knows what a pain it can be to find parking. River House has ample parking and overflow parking. They had no problem accommodating our 100+ guests. Scenic Views: Sitting right on the Matanzas River, you get a view of the water and the iconic St. Augustine lighthouse to give all of your guests a beautiful feel for coastal life. We loved seeing the dolphins going for a swim by the venue. Constance and her Staff: This group is absolutely essential for making a wedding run so smoothly. They were so helpful and quick to answer any questions/concerns even 18 months before the wedding date. Bridal Room & Groom’s Room: These were perfect locations for our group. We had plenty of room, mirrors, and dressing space for makeup/hair touch ups, snack time, and general chill time before the wedding ceremony. Ballroom: Beautiful doesn’t even begin to describe this space. The circular dance floor with an entire wall filled with windows to see out on the water, made this space perfect for the reception and great for a backup rain location. Constance worked so well with all of our vendors in planning for lighting, tables, set up, kitchen needs,etc. The bar is beautiful and served our guests perfectly. They transformed the entire venue into what we dreamed of for our wedding. Ice Cream Sundae Bar in the Conservatory was a hit!! Catering choice: Many venues force you to choose their catering or one company they use, but River House has a list of approved caterers with MORE than enough wonderful options to choose from. Our favorite was on the list.
Kacy & Ross | One of our favorite moments of our wedding day was during our ceremony – standing there, taking it all in, all our loved ones witnessing our union, overlooking the spectacular river view, lighthouse, sun shining, complete with a refreshing breeze! We are so happy to have chosen River House as our wedding venue. Thank you for working with us leading up to and during our celebration. Everything was perfect. Several of our guests told us it was the best wedding they had ever experienced – what an awesome compliment!
Kathleen & Patrick | Thank you so much for your hard work on making our wedding day possible. Your facility is absolutely gorgeous. You are all well organized and thoughtful. Our wedding day was beautiful and so much fun!
Peggy & Steve | From the time of our first meeting last August, we knew the River House was a good choice for our daughter’s wedding. Not only is it beautifully decorated and situated on a lovely setting, it also had you! And that was what convinced us we wanted to reserve this very special place. Words are inadequate to thank you for your professionalism and graciousness. At a time when things can get a little crazy, it didn’t. You are truly a gem and an asset to the success of the River House!
Melissa & Josh | I cannot stop gushing over the River House. You and your staff were so helpful and courteous during our big day. We have not heard one negative thing about your venue. Thank you for allowing us to spend the best day of our lives with you, the best venue in St. Augustine.
Sharlene & Adam | We cannot thank you enough for being such a special part of our wedding! You are such a pleasure to be around, which made our wedding day less stressful. The River House looked beautiful the day of our wedding and our family & friends have nothing but great things to say about your venue. Everyone loved it! Thanks again for all your hard work!
