Marie is amazing and so is this location!
Our guests were blown away by this venue - we decided to do most of our event outdoors, and Marie (manager) was so accommodating to setup the tables inside and outside just as we asked. Tables and chairs, beautiful wooden bar, bridal rooms and groomsman rooms are provided and perfect for what we needed. So many beautiful spots for pictures around the property! And the building looks gorgeous day and night. I can’t say enough about how great Marie was to work with - she has a wonderful personality. She let us bring our decor up a day or two early which was a huge help.Sent on 04/21/2021
The Ribault Club's reply:Thank you so much for your sweet words....I absolutely loved everything about your wedding! You were so much fun to work with to plan your day, and when you came down the stairs in that dress, I couldn't help but tear up-you looked so amazing! You and Eli are such a special couple, and your wedding day was filled with so much love, laughter and joy!!

My husband and I fell in love with the Ribault Club's historic Old Florida charm the moment we checked it out. From the old oaks draped in Spanish moss to the palms and the SPACE that this beautiful venue offers, we were never disappointed. The staff at the Ribault Club was just as amazing as the property itself and were easily one of the best vendors to work with. Marie, Madi, and Haley did an outstanding job of communicating, helping, and truly going above and beyond to make our day absolutely wonderful. Our guests are still commenting on what a magical night we had and how absolutely breathtaking our ceremony and reception were (both out back).Sent on 12/08/2020

Want a Beautiful, Unique Wedding Venue? Go with The Ribault Club
We had our wedding at The Ribault Club on a Friday and it was even more perfect than we could have hoped. From our initial tour of the venue, it was love at first sight. We visited multiple times between that initial visit and our big day and were awe-struck by the natural beauty and the Old Florida feel of the estate every single time. The grand oak was the idyllic backdrop for our ceremony, and the ballroom was a lovely setting for our reception.Sent on 01/14/2020
We were looking for a venue that was both affordable and gorgeous, and The Ribault Club fit the bill flawlessly. We loved being able to pick our own vendors (hello, taco bar!) and having enough space to dance the night away. They also provided all of our tables and chairs, which really helped us in keeping the cost and additional vendor involvement to a minimum.
The staff was always professional and warm to us. We mainly worked with Marie, Madi, and Deborah, who were all welcoming and accommodating. Emails and phone calls were always answered promptly. They were flexible with us and did their best to ensure our day went exactly as we pictured it.
And last but not least, our day-of coordinator, Summer, knocked it out of the park. We went with the in-house coordination and it was one of the best decisions we made. She was so attentive and ensured our special day ran smoothly from start to finish. Her knowledge of the venue and her experience in wedding coordination were apparent from day one. We could not have had such a perfect, stress-free experience without her, and we are beyond grateful for her and the whole Ribault Club staff.
If you’re considering The Ribault Club as your wedding venue, you can’t go wrong with them. The grounds alone guarantee a gorgeous wedding and their staff will make sure you have a beautiful, unique day!
