    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!

    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...
