About The Carriage House

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.

Menu/Food:
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.

Services/Facilities:

  • Huge Shabby-Chic Bridal Suite
  • Seperate ceremony, cocktail hour and reception spaces for a great wedding flow
  • Barn-Front or Garden Ceremony spots to choose from
  • Large Indoor and Outdoor Bars with bar-back shelving
  • Caterers' Workspace (including a double-bowl deep sink, Counterspace, Refrigerator/Freezer and Large Ice Chest)
  • Multiple Stall Restrooms + Large Handicap Restroom
  • Inventory Showroom
  • Ample On-Site Parking

    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!

Owner/President

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,
Erin Murphy
