What can I say about the River House.... absolutely beautiful!! We had our wedding there earlier this month and it was one of the best decisions! The place is absolutely beautiful, Constance and the staff are very friendly and willing to help where they can and did I mention they have ample FREE PARKING for all your guests and vendors!! I would recommend the River House to anyone looking for an elegant place to have your wedding or any other venue!! Jason, myself and Chloe would like to thank you Constance for everything!
The River house is honestly the most perfect venue. I really wanted somewhere that I could do the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception without making the guests move around or even think especially since we are all from out of town. The venue is just fabulous: beautiful views, big open windows in the ballroom, great dance floor: what else could you want! Constance and her team were amazing as well! They would email me back almost immediately and also let me come tour the venue whenever I was in town from Minnesota. They gave me great suggestions for my other vendors and worked together with my wedding planners to make my dream wedding come true! If you want a wedding that flows perfectly, this is your spot!
Beautiful location with a perfect view. Constance and Sarah do a great job selling the venue and responding to any questions I send their way. However they are not there during the event. They sent me someone's name that will be there but I never saw or met them. My coordinators I hired did everything, which was expected but the value is minimal for a location. I was happy with the set up of tables and chairs.
The Riverhouse, with coordinator Constance, was absolutely wonderful! Unlike other venues, when you book here, they will only schedule your wedding that day so there is no overlapping or being rushed in or out. Also, you don't just get one room, but the whole lovely facility. I was very impressed with how much was included for the fee: silverware, flatware, glassware, indoor and outdoor chairs, fun little knick knacks (one less thing we had to buy), oversized tables, and especially, linen. We were allowed to bring in our own caterer and we even were able to supply our own alcohol. They were very flexible, allowing us to come in earlier than they contractually agreed to, and we popped by several times during the planning process without incident. The site is beautiful and fancy, but nothing about it and the staff was stuffy or reserved; there was no, "please, don't touch that." They also have plenty of parking, and guests are allowed to park overnight (if perhaps they drank too much). Finally, one of my most favorite parts is that this facility is first and foremost a senior center, and the money from weddings goes primarily to the facility's mortgage and maintenance. I like to know that my wedding isn't just business to them, and that my money isn't lining some big shot's pockets. I will definitely have my next 2 weddings here ;-)
From the minute we walked in to the River House we knew it was the place for us. Constance and team were a dream to work with and they went above and beyond to make our day a success! The River House is a great value (you don't have a lot of vendor restrictions) and honestly reduces a lot of headaches and stress, their packages include china, silverware, tables, linens and gold chiavari chairs so you don't have to run around and find another vendor to do this. All of our guests were raving about how beautiful the venue is. Our day was perfect and we can't thank the River House enough!
Thank you, Jessica! We're so glad you enjoyed your special day with us, and are honored to have been a part of it!
Beautiful venue. Helpful coordinator and staff. So nice to have inside and outside space available. Looooooved that we were the only event that day, having the place to ourselves made the day that much more special and intimate.
Thank you, Betsy! We do our best to make your special day stress-free. Congratulations, again!
Out of all the Venues we traveled through in St. Augustine, being all extremely nice, we fell in love with this one. Constance is a blessing to work with and we are looking forward to our upcoming wedding here in September. There is absolutely nothing I can say to change my mind on knowing we have picked the most breathe taken experience we will have ever experience. So very excited to start our new lives together and adventure the many years to come, this is where it will begin.
WEDDING DAY!!! This was the BEST decision we could have made. Amazing Staff!!! Everything was perfect from beginning to end... I wouldn't had changed anything. Even with the rain they turned my dream wedding into a memory of a lifetime. I can not thank you enough for all you did to help make our day absolutely perfect.
Thank you, Cary & Eric! We're looking forward to hosting your wedding this fall. Can't wait to see all you have planned for your special day!
We can not brag enough about this venue and the group of people who helped to assist. Everyone was extremely helpful, caring and made sure that our experience was everything it could have been. The rain didn't stop them and the party went on...Thank you all of you for the wonderful memories. ..
The River House Event Center went above and beyond my expectations. They were very professional from the first phone call to follow up concluding my wedding. The staff was very helpful and friendly and really made me feel important.
Thank you so much, Ashley! We are glad we could be a part of your special day!
The moment we saw The River House we knew it was the place for us. Located on the water with the light house in the background and windows lining the dance floor, it's just gorgeous! We worked with Constance who was wonderful, she always answered my questions almost immediately and even responded to my emails when she wasn't working. I can not say enough good things about The River House and their employees. Definitely the best wedding in St Augustine and surrounding areas by far!
Thank you Sherry! We sincerely appreciate the kind words and are very honored that we could be a part of your special day! Congratulations again to you both!
Constance and her team were wonderful to work with. The venue is gorgeous! This is THE place to celebrate!
Thank you Celeste! So glad you enjoyed your special day with us!
All of the staff at River House were very attentive and a pleasure to work with! Constance was very helpful in the planning process and was very professional. Would recommend this venue to any planner for a special event! Parking was easy and perfect picture locations on site!
Thank you Michelle! It was a pleasure being a part of your special day!
Beautiful venue and Constance was a joy to work with. the ambiance for my daughter's wedding was amazing. We had people that attended our other daughter's wedding and loved the venue (different one) but after attending this wedding said they had changed their mind as this one was hands down better. If we had it to do all over again, I would have urged my daughter not to get married in June as we melted outdoors lol, but we couldn't have asked for a more exquisite view both inside and outside.
Thank you! We loved being a part of your daughters big day. Unfortunately, the weather is one of those things we can't control, but we're lucky to have the inlet breeze and gorgeous views to make up for the heat!
This venue was so beautiful, we decided to push our wedding date back. This venue is limited in the vendors you can use and the rules to use the venue, but it is worth it to use the space. The sales and marketing manager was very accommodating of our requests and a pleasure to work with.
Thank you, Kumari! Congratulations, again!
Love this venue and staff were great.
Venue was gorgeous! Staff was great!
Thank you, Chelsea!
