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 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, high dress hooks 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.
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.
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!Sent on 05/14/2019

The most beautiful venue!
I have too many great things to say about The Carriage House! The venue was absolutely gorgeous! It had a great flow from the ceremony, to the cocktail hour to the reception. Erin and her team made sure our wedding day was absolutely perfect with their responsiveness, organization, and willingness to help however they could! We received so many compliments about our wedding venue from our guests. We could not have asked for a more beautiful venue and a more responsive team!Sent on 01/28/2020
The Carriage House's reply:Thanks a million for your kind words Mallory! Your wedding day was perfect and you were a breeze to work with!

Working with The Carriage House was easy, fun and stress-free. The owners were so flexible and attentive, and they really made us feel like they cared about our big day going well. We never ran into any issues whatsoever.
The venue is clean, well-lit, and extremely spacious, and our guests have been giving us compliments ever since. The on-site parking was also a huge plus. We couldn't recommend it enough!Sent on 04/17/2020
