The Carriage House is our beautiful barn venue including an enchanting garden and southern farmhouse porch. This 2000 square foot, climate-controlled barn displays a cozy and romantic setting. Opening the large barn doors reveals exposed beams, farmhouse tables, stringed market lights and a carriage-wheel chandelier. We love the barn’s ability to perfectly transform itself for a rustic celebration or an elegant, more formal affair at an affordable price.
The Carriage House is in a prime location for downtown St. Augustine- close enough for after-party affairs but far enough to have our own convenient parking lot.
We also have a huge bridal suite complete with a make-up station, tall dress hangers and plenty of lounge seating.
This venue has gone through extreme renovations recently and until 2018, this venue was previously known as “The Pioneer Barn at Fort Menendez.” Our street-front building, "The Gate House", now includes climate controlled bathrooms, a caterers' kitchen, inventory showroom, and a "rainy-day" ceremony space.
We do not provide food services however you are welcome to have any licensed caterer provide those services for your event! This makes the events more unique with personalized food selections. We have a preferred vendor list to help you with this.

The perfect venue!
My wife and I just got married at the Carriage House on April 27th and honestly, Erin, with House Of Assembly Events, was able to take our dreams and make it reality for our special day! Erin teamed up with Amanda, of Simply Weddings By Amanda, and Sarah, of Sarah Annay Photography was honestly a dream team!! If you are looking for something breathtaking and truly beautiful for your special day and don’t trust just anyone to do it, you have my word that they are the best.Sent on 05/14/2019
The Carriage House was a perfect venue. Want an inside wedding? They have an amazing rustic barn. Want an outside wedding? You have your choice of a few different spots. Want a combo? (Honestly, who wouldn’t? Highly recommend!) They have that option too!
Don’t believe me? Look at these amazing photos from my own wedding and tell me who wouldn’t think this was stunning? And, the best part is, the entire reception area was a complete surprise to the brides until after the ceremony...and it was phenomenal! Do you know another vendor you would trust that much?
If you are just starting to look or think you found the venue for you, please don’t say the final yes until you’ve seen what the House of Assembly Events has to offer. They’ll more than likely beat the price of your other choice too for what’s to offer!
Absolutely everyone who attended the wedding said it was the best wedding they had ever been to!

Amazing Venue for wedding, gathering, or any event
Amazing Venue for wedding, gathering, or any event! Erin was amazing and went above and beyond to create the perfect Garba for us (Indian Dance festivity, pre-wedding). She did the research herself and decorated the place way better than we could have ever imagined.Sent on 09/24/2019
The Carriage House's reply:Thank you for your great review! Your event was So Much Fun!! Hope to see you both again one day!
