Venue Overview

Our interior designer has selected furnishings both new and antique that give each room character and Old World charm. Our color palette is soft, muted gold and sage green with hardwood floors and/or carpet in the rooms. The overall feel of River House is that of an upscale yet comfortable setting.

River House Terrace

Relax and enjoy the beauty of the Matanzas River from the timelessly elegant River House terrace. As guests descend the down lit terrace steps and onto the tumbled stone pavers, they are greeted with a breathtaking view of the St. Augustine lighthouse. Our terrace is perfect for wedding ceremonies, cocktail hour, or a stroll on our down lit dock. Also includes 7 cast-iron tables with 28 chairs, and 8 wicker rocking chairs.

The Conservatory

The Conservatory, just off the ballroom has travertine floors, white walls, iron-framed mirrors shaped like palladiums windows lining the walls, antique hanging lanterns and six square tables each with 4 white Chiavari chairs. All this helps to complete the feeling of a “garden room.”

My husband and I live 2.5 hours away, planning our wedding in St. Augustine we thought would be difficult since we lived so far. It wasn't at all! The River House staff was incredibly helpful in all aspects of our wedding. Through their recommendations and knowledge it was amazingly easy and stress free. I would recommend this venue for anyone looking for a beautiful, well kept facility. We couldnt have asked for a better wedding day!

If you a searching for the perfect St. Augustine wedding venue, look no further! The River House is such a magical spot and not only do you get the feel of downtown but you get to be slightly out of the hustle and bustle. Allison and Devan went above and beyond to ensure that the venue was ready for my wedding and guests. Even a few days after Hurricane Ian flooded the streets Allison was on top of communicating with me that the venue survived and was ready for us. The building itself is absolutely stunning, I loved that I could get married outside with the water behind us while still having an indoor reception, and the best part, our guests didn’t have to travel between! They are so accommodating and I couldn’t be happier with my choice to be at the River House on my best day! If you’re considering this venue, you have truly found a hidden gem!

St. Augustine is such an amazing destination for your special day and River House is no exception. Truly a hidden gem away from downtown that is right on the river that offers you amazing views and service for your wedding. Allison was so communicative throughout the planning process and even on day of with rain in the forecast she was ready to jump to have our ceremony outside if we had the chance. Such a beautiful day with a beautiful venue to match.
