Easiest decision so far :)
We had an amazing tour. Sara, the coordinator, is so organized, thorough, and very responsive over email. She was very patient with all of our questions and pauses for pictures. The venue is gorgeous and everything we want. This was honestly the easiest decision we've made with our wedding planning process so far and we couldn't be more excited!Sent on 04/15/2019

Elegant Wedding Venue!
The Palencia Club is a stunning wedding venue, you truly have to go see Palencia in person! There are so many good picture spots and the event spaces are neutral but elegant. Sara was with us every step of the way, even through changing our wedding multiple times because of COVID-19. We had a small cocktail reception and the food was amazing! All of the staff was so so nice and helpful! You cannot beat the price of this wedding venue!Sent on 06/29/2020

We booked the Palencia Club about a year out from our December 2019 wedding. From the beginning, our experience with them was awesome. Sara, the coordinator, was amazing. She was extremely responsive and easy to get a hold of. She answered all my questions, no matter how inconsequential. We hired her for her day of coordinator services as well, and she went above and beyond. Her help extended way past just a day of coordinator. She contacted vendors for me to make sure that they knew where to be and when. She put together the ceremony and reception areas to the way that I envisioned. And she ensured that the day ran as smoothly as possible. We were very grateful for her help!Sent on 02/01/2020
The venue was very flexible and willing to help in whatever way to make our day special. The food was amazing, and all of our guests were very complimentary about it. We even had a few guests with very strict dietary restrictions that they were able to accommodate and still make the food taste good.
The venue itself was beautiful, and we are looking forward to seeing it captured in our pictures. Overall, we would highly recommend the Palencia Club to anyone looking for a beautiful place in St. Augustine to get married.
COMPLETE WEDDINGS + EVENTS - JAX loves the Palencia Club! The newly decorated banquet room is gorgeous! It is decorated with simplicity, taste, and elegance. The fountains are picturesque during the day, but at night they glow. They're a spot for fun, romantic photography. The grounds with the beautiful landscaping give a perfect background for family or large group portraits. The cocktail hour on the patio is lit with strings of lights adding to the lure of rich, warm evening light. Sara Martinson, banquet manager/coordinator is fantastic! She's organized, thoughtful, creative and extremely experienced. Sara and her staff are professional and give great attention to detail. I wish she had organized at my daughter's wedding. Michelle Oliver, new membership is such a sweetheart telling new members about the club, the neighborhood, and fun groups of people to meet to widen your social circle! The Palencia has not only an interesting and playable greens, but tons of fun parties for any occasion. THE FOOD! It's amazing, innovative! The head chef can create any dish you desire. THEIR BAR SERVICE! Crystal serves the best drinks! Because of their combined quality in food, beverage and staff, we're holding our annual company meeting at - of course - the PALENCIA CLUB.
