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!Sent on 12/28/2019

We loved EVERYTHING about the River House
The River House Events venue is the perfect spot, especially for weddings. We had so many compliments on how beautiful it was, and we really didn't have to do much to decorate! It's already beautiful as it is. Constance and Sarah are very easy to work with and they are very quick with responding to emails and phone calls for any questions. The price might seem high at first, but it includes so much and the vendors they work with are amazing - so take a look at their list before searching for your own. I am so glad we had our wedding at the River House. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Our day was perfect! Thank you, Constance!Sent on 08/14/2019

The Perfect Pour LOVES working events at The River House! This remarkable venue is unlike any in our town. You simply cannot beat the view, the helpful staff, and the wonderful amenities.
I always love working at the River House. With a beautiful view of the intercostal, a huge ballroom, elegant library area, and beautiful bay windows, there are plenty of gorgeous photo-ops!
River House has all the elegance of a country club and the casual sophistication of a country inn with spectacular water views from every window. The staff are professional and accommodating. This is a win win venue.
