Our commercial kitchen is inspected regularly by the Florida Department of Health and meets and exceeds all standards. Outside caterer are permitted. If your caterer is not on our preferred list, we welcome them but have requirements that must be met by your caterer. Ask for more details on this. Under the auspices of the city of St. Augustine's liquor-consumption permit, the Exchange allows alcoholic beverages on the site but the bartender(s) must be hired by the contractor for the event.
Events may be scheduled year-round in our garden. A tent and outdoor lighting is strongly recommended for weddings where the garden will host both the ceremony and the reception.

We held our April wedding at the Pena Peck House on St George Street. The planning process from start to finish was very smooth, and the venue was well kept in preparation for hosting a beautiful event. Lynne was there the night of our wedding and was pleasant and professional, ensuring our valuables were safely locked up and directing potential wedding crashers out without notice. If you can't picture your wedding there upon visiting, check out some of their pictures and use your imagination. The entire day turned out more beautiful than I imagined, and Pena Peck was just the right venue for us.Sent on 04/28/2014

We chose the Pena Peck house for the history of the site, as well as the beauty of the gardens. I will admit we were incredibly worried after the hurricane uprooted most of the gardens, but it turned out to be a secret blessing, the gardens came back even more beautiful with their new landscape designers. Most of our guests had never heard of this location, so even the local guests felt as if they had been invited to something special and unique. I highly recommend you reach out to their preferred vendor lists for lighting, the extra string lights made the space look absolutely magical.Sent on 07/25/2017
It was everything I dreamed of, and more. On top of that, the staff was so friendly and accommodating. Mary in particular made the day so much easier and less stressful, a woman like that is invaluable honestly. We knew there would be security, but had no idea it would be an actual police officer. It was nice to know that random drinkers from St George street wouldnt be able to wonder in, and the officer was so friendly.
Highly recommend this location if you are interested in a classy and intimate garden party. We were able to use the location for both ceremony and reception, the sentiment we have heard from everyone is that it was the "most beautiful" and "most romantic" wedding they've ever seen.

The Pena Peck House was our first pick! We were going to have a small intimate wedding of 50 people or less and when we viewed the property, this was it! Their staff is so incredibly nice, warm, and welcoming! Their garden terrace is absolutely perfect for an outdoor ceremony and reception. Our wedding was 12/12/15, and we got so lucky with the best weather possible! It was insanely perfect! Our family and friends never even knew this gem existed. They were blown awY by everything! It's parallel to St. George Street, so most may think it could get noisey, but definitely the complete opposite. You definitely have tourists, but the staff mandates the gate so no one can come in! The ladies at the house let us come by anytime to explore, and even joined in the festivities at the actual wedding! I've never met such a great group of ladies. If your considering a small, romantic venue for a smaller sized wedding, I highly recommend viewing the Pena Peck House. It's historic, charming and rustic feel is perfect for a St Augustine wedding! My only regret is that the day just flew by too fast and I wanted it to go on forever. I'm so pleased we found this place, and would recommend it in a minute to any bride! Thank you ladies at the Pena Peck House! You're classy, kind, warm, and certainly know how to help organize the absolute best celebration! Also, thank you for recommending Coastal Celebrations! They're re truly the BEST! My day will never be forgotten! Also, the newly renovated bathrooms are top notch!Sent on 12/19/2015
This is an amazing museum in historic downtown St. Augustine to have your ceremony or reception or both! The volunteers put on amazing events that are truly unique. The garden turns into a magical place with strings of lights, paper lanterns and a big white tent. Gorgeous!
