About

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. Rich in history and Southern charm, the Mathis House provides the ideal 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 10 acres of land and 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 Citrus Grove Gazebo, or The Century Tree. Guests can enjoy dinner and cocktails under the stars or in a rented tent. The Mathis House also provides two get-ready suites, a large island kitchen, and screened back porch. Other indoor spaces can accommodate small gatherings such as engagement parties, wedding showers, or rehearsal dinners. The large deck is perfect for dancing and celebrating special occasions. This venue also offers the nearby Honeymoon Cabin nestled on the edge of the woods. Newlywed couples are invited to relax and enjoy this cozy cabin after a full wedding day.

Services Offered

The Mathis House base fee includes tables, ample parking, wheelchair-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.

You won鈥檛 regret getting married here!

The Glen Venue is an amazing venue comprised of gorgeous landscapes and full of history. Not only is the property beautiful, but the venue owners are SAINTS. I鈥檝e never met such kind, helpful, compassionate, understanding, and wholesome people. Even when things with my dj and wedding planner went south LaNell and Tab were right there ready to help. I believe my wedding night would鈥檝e been a lot smoother if we hired LaNell as the day of coordinator, so I鈥檇 definitely recommend that! Overall, you can鈥檛 beat the beauty in the nature, the rich history, and the awesome owners at the Glen. My husband and I are so thankful for the experience and to be a part of the Glen Venue family now. You won鈥檛 regret getting married here!

Magical beyond words

My daughter is from Kentucky, so planning this wedding was going to be a bit difficult, or so I thought. As soon as we met LaNell, I knew we were in good hands. She is the epitome of southern hospitality. When we came to view the venue, LaNell gave us a tour of the grounds, giving us the history dating back to 1882. It was like stepping back in time. As for planning, we were given vendors that she had worked with in the past and trusted. This was extremely helpful. The venue itself is beautiful beyond words. The peace of nature and God鈥檚 creation are everywhere. We had the ceremony at the Mathis House where the bridal party got ready. Everything we needed was right there. It started to sprinkle rain right before dinner, and somehow, LaNell and Tab, her husband, moved all the tables, chairs, etc. inside and onto the front porch. We didn鈥檛 know it had happened until LaNell said we would be dining inside. The reception was out back on the deck, which was the perfect setting for dancing and socializing. My daughter and new son-in-law stayed in the honeymoon cabin on the grounds. It was perfect. I would recommend The Glen Venue to anyone and everyone. Thank you LaNell and Tab for sharing your home with us. God bless you.
