The Carriage House is a 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 in a destiniation-wedding town!
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 (rarity in St. Augustine).
We also have a huge bridal suite complete with a make-up station, dress armoire and plenty of lounge seating.
This venue has gone through extreme renovations and until 2018 and 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.

Doubling as the president and event director of House of Assembly Events LLC., I aspire to help every client's unique event vision come to life!
My husband and I married in 2017, with an "enchanted woodlands" wedding theme featuring a barn as the backdrop. Horses are my passion so a barn is one of my favorite places to be! After meeting local vednors for our wedding, my love of wedding planning transformed into wanting to help other couples have a fantastic wedding day as well!
This venue is family owned and operated, making your experience exclusive and personable. I am so excited to see this charming barn help our client's dreams come to life!
