About

Up to 130 guests

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.

Coordinators, Food & Vendors:
We do not provide food services however you are welcome to have any licensed caterer provide these services for your event! We love the uniqueness this brings to events with personalized food selections. If you choose an all-inclusive package, the cost of catering is not included and you have a list of caterers to choose from. This way you can still get the food you want!

Our wedding packages include a professional planner who can help you choose the right vendors for you! We also have a preferred vendors list to help you choose your team.
If you are already under contract with an approved planner, please let us know so our package pricing can reflect this!

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!

Always,
