My wife and I were brought to tears over finding the River House for a number of reasons. First and foremost the St Augustine lighthouse is in view from the outside and that is where we got engaged. A unique space with plenty to remember it by, the entire house is a wonderful setup with plenty to offer for your needs.Sent on 04/05/2019
Constance was a delight from the get go and my lasting memory will be a small detail she made for me. During our 30 day walkthrough I made a joke about adding some emerald green cloths into our red/blue/neutral decor and was given appropriately confounded faces by our planner and fiance. What I didn't expect when my bride and I sat at our table was to find a single green napkin sitting underneath my plate. Brought tears to my eyes.
We had a 130 person wedding and the space was very comfortable. Their usual setup for catering which is in a room to the side of the main great hall is a fantastic setup and impressed me from day one. The library makes you feel like a king and there is more than enough parking. tThe views from the water, especially having the dock attachment and the lighthouse in the background make it a picture perfect backdrop.

From the day we called Constance to schedule a tour of the River House, I knew the service was going to be perfect. Constance and her staff are so professional and really care about how your wedding day will be. Whenever I had questions, Constance replied within minutes. The 1 month walk thru was very organized and efficient, it made some of the jitters go away knowing Constance and her staff had everything under control. The venue is gorgeous! Friends and family loved it too! It was the most perfect day and we are so happy we chose the River House!Sent on 06/21/2018

Amazing... (is an understatement)
Wedding day was perfect. Constance and everybody at River House, take your event personally and seriously. No detail was overlooked. River House is still a somewhat "newcomer" to the venue circuit, but you wouldn't know by looking at it. If you want your wedding in St Augustine, you want it at River House. The online photos really don't do it justice! Give Constance a call, and take a visit. You'll feel welcomed from the moment you step foot on the grounds, knowing you've found the right place. From start to finish (and beyond), the professionalism and attention to detail were unsurpassed. I just cannot say enough positive things to express...Sent on 04/09/2019

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.
