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.
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!
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.
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!
The venue was absolutely gorgeous for our wedding reception. All of my out of town guests absolutely loved the scenery! Constance was very quick to respond to my emails. It was so nice to find a venue that had enough parking for everyone, because in downtown St. Augustine that's pretty rare. The amenities and table linens/tableware looked very nice and the layout of the building is set up perfectly. I would recommend this venue to everyone!
Thank you so much! We're so glad we could be a part of your special day!
Deciding on River House in St. Augustine as the site for our daughter’s June 2015 wedding reception was an easy decision! The location, the space, and the view are absolutely breathtaking! We wanted a venue where our guests could ‘spread out’! Cocktail hour was outside on the terrace where the guests could enjoy the beautiful view of the Intracoastal Waterway and the St. Augustine Lighthouse! The Grande Ballroom was absolutely perfect for our reception with plenty of room to seat our guests for dinner, and the ballroom dance floor is extra spacious, which was a must for our party, since our guests danced the night away! By the way, all of our vendors were thrilled to be working at River House!!! Constance (and her team) was beyond helpful from the beginning stages of planning through the end of our reception. Don’t be shy about asking her anything when planning your wedding! Constance’s expertise in planning a wedding reception was extremely valuable, and she is the reason our daughter and husband, along with our guests experienced a wonderful and fun reception
For starters, the River House is one of the most picturesque venues in Saint Augustine! It was absolutely perfect, the spanning backdrop of the water and Saint Augustine Lighthouse made for a great utilization of the patio space by our Guests (and was wonderful for pictures)! Additionally, it is truly a luxury of space (especially among bustling Saint Augustine). Our guests had the luxury of parking on-site at no additional costs or stress to them, and the venue affords the WHOLE space to the dedication of your particular event! This was one of my favorite aspects, among the space and wonderful service from the staff we felt at home at the River House. We did not feel as though we were renting a room for a temporary time, but rather we were afforded the opportunity to roam freely from the main ballroom to the library, dock and beyond. We heard nothing but rave reviews from our guests about the venue selection, and we could not have been happier!
I think it is also essential that I include that the River House offers more than stunning perfection in view, but a wonderfully dedicated and professional staff! We primarily worked with Constance when planning our use of the venue, and she quickly became our go to reference for all things wedding! It is evident that Constance knows the wedding and event industry. She had an ease of sharing all of our different options and professionally recommended various vendors that have excelled at the River House previously. We greatly credit Constance to laying the foundation for the perfect wedding! Additionally, the River House staff present for the event were wonderful and extremely detail-oriented! All individuals we interacted with at the River House ensured the event ran seamlessly and we so appreciated their professional and relatable interactions.
I highly recommend Constance, her team and the River House to any couple looking for a Saint Augustine wedding!
Everyone that works at River House was so helpful through the process. The space was beautiful for both ceremony and reception. We received so many compliments for the venue.
We're so glad you and your guests enjoyed the venue. Thank you for choosing River House to host your special day!
We were very impressed with all the services at River House for our wedding. Constance and the River House team were wonderful to work with and helped us all the way. They were even great when it rained an hour before our wedding, but we didn't worry at all. Everything was taken care of.
Thank you Heather! It was a pleasure working with you. Congratulations again!
River House is a beautiful venue with an amazing view! Everyone enjoyed the classy feel and the indoor/outdoor accommodation. Constance and the rest of the River House staff are so helpful and really care about your every wedding desire. I highly recommend River House.
Thank you for the kind words! We are lucky to have an amazing staff who love what they do. Congratulations again on your wedding!
Venue is beautiful but there are too many strict rules (such as no sparklers), and time constraints are ridiculous. Couples should be able to have venue for entire day, not just 8 hours, and ESPECIALLY not have to pay for extra hours before ceremony, that isn't fair to vendors. Having to use someone from their list of caterers isn't fair either. I love the venue but not the people who run it.
Such a beautiful space!!! It was absolutely perfect for my wedding. My wedding was in April had for the cocktail hour guests had the beautiful view of the river as they sipped drinks outside. Inside, you have the beautiful library and also the perfect set up for dancing and dinner. Constance and her crew could not have been more helpful either. They met us during our walk through, helped us designed a layout with our tables, and so so much more. Highly recommended!!!!
Thank you Kristy! We are so glad we could be a part of your special day!
