About The Glen Venue

The Glen Venue is a spacious, Old Florida style wedding and event venue located in Glen St. Mary, Florida, just 30 minutes west of Jacksonville off I-10. Rich in history and Southern charm the Mathis House provides the perfect setting for the couple looking for a relaxed outdoor wedding venue and stunning wedding photos.

Facilities and Capacity
The Glen Venue's Mathis House is situated on ten acres of Glen St Mary Nursery and is surrounded by lush flora and fauna indicative of northeast Florida. The spacious grounds offer several wedding ceremony locations which include the Arbor in the Glade, the Cirtrus Grove Gazebo, or The Century Tree. Guests will enjoy dining under the stars or a rented tent. The Mathis House provides a bridal suite, groom's changing room, large island kitchen, and screened back porch. Other indoor space can accommodate small gatherings such as engagement party, wedding shower or rehearsal dinner. The large deck is perfect for dancing and celebrating special occasions.

The Glen Venue also offers the nearby Honeymoon Cabin nestled on the edge of the woods. The newlywed couple is invited to relax and enjoy this cozy cabin after a full wedding day.

Services Offered
The Mathis House base fee includes tables, ample parking, wheel chair accessible facilities, and reception clean up. Outside vendors are welcome to assist you with your ceremony and reception needs. The Taber family, proprietors of the property, are available to assist you in creating the day of your dreams from the very beginning of your planning to the day of your wedding.

History
In 1882 at the young age of 27, George L. Taber Sr. settled in Glen St. Mary, Florida, and began cultivating fruit trees. By the early 1900's Glen St. Mary Nursery was a major contributor in Florida's citrus and nursery stock industry, including the development of the George L. Taber azalea. Today Glen St. Mary Nursery is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as it continues the family owned wholesale nursery business. Five generations of the Taber family call The Glen home and invite you to experience this rich heritage of family and Southern hospitality.

    Memorable and Magical

    This place was nothing short of spectacular. I was looking for something with an earthy/woodsy vibe, all outdoors, and in North Florida. This venue was IT!
    Our host LaNell, was a pleasure to work with. From our first contact with her, we were treated like family. She made the planning process a breeze by anticipating and having answers to our questions and giving us things to consider that we hadn’t considered before. She was also very helpful to our vendors, especially our photographers. There are so many photographic locations. LaNell is a pro at knowing what time of day is optimal for photographing each location. The photo we added with our review, LaNell took herself on her phone!
    The venue itself emanates raw, “old Florida” beauty, and with your décor in place, it’s simply breathtaking. They even have mosquito control!!! Our wedding guests raved about the venue. Our experience was beyond memorable and magical.

    We immediately loved the venue just from how beautiful it was. We loved it even more after speaking with LaNell. Overall, the venue was a beautiful place for us to get married, rain or shine. We couldn't have been more pleased with how everything turned out and we thank LaNell and her family for their amazing hospitality and help throughout our wedding.
