River House is located in the heart of downtown St. Augustine on the Intercoastal Waterway with breathtaking views of the St. Augustine Lighthouse and the Historic Bridge of Lions. The interior of River House is decorated so that each room has character and Old World charm. The color palette is soft, muted gold and sage green with hardwood floors or carpet.

Ceremonies are typcially held on our back lawn which is located right on the edge of the water. This setting lends itself to beautiful pictures and a nice breeze for an afternoon or evening wedding. However, our thirty-two foot round hardwood dance floor in our Grande Ballroom can also be used for ceremonies. This too has a magnificent view of the water.

When all is put together- the gorgeous views, the lavish furnishings and Old World charm- River House creates an upscale yet cozy feel making each guest feel as if they are being welcomed home for the day. Read less

This wedding venue has it all! Since I was four years old I spent every summer on St. Augustine Beach. So many monumental moments in my life happened in St. Augustine. When my now husband and I got engaged there in 2015 it was a dream of ours to get married in St. Augustine. Living in Tampa , we visited venue after venue in St. Augustine on the weekends to find our perfect wedding location. When we toured River House with Constance, we knew right away that this venue was "the one". We spent a lot of our time outdoors so the waterfront venue was perfect. The view of the lighthouse and marsh is a view unlike any other in the area. I promise! We had a larger wedding so finding a venue that could easily accommodate over 150 guests in downtown St. Augustine -and offer parking- seemed like a challenge, but River House is perfect for larger celebrations and with more than enough parking onsite it couldn't be any more convenient. We did our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all at the venue and it was everything we dreamed of. The extensive preferred vendor list River House has for their clients has some of the best selections of vendors in the area. Constance and team are extremely easy to work with and are very responsive to the client's needs. I can't singer higher praises for this venue, this is a very special property and if you are planning a wedding in the St. Augustine area I highly recommend you schedule a tour with Constance and check this stunning property out for yourself!

The first thing I noticed about this place was how beautiful it was. Every single thing about it is perfectly gorgeous. I first emailed to get prices and yes, it’s a little pricey but it’s most certainly worth it because the place is huge, the views are gorgeous, you get a lot of time there, the chairs, china, tables, table cloths all come with it. Renting that stuff would cost a lot. One thing I loved about it was that the back up plan for rain was still beautiful. Florida summer rain is untrustworthy and getting married inside is almost just as beautiful as outside on the water so that was a huge plus for me. Besides the price though, the people who work there, especially Constance, was amazing. She knew exactly what she was doing. She was great at communication and she had the best ideas. She knew what we should and should do it so it was great. My wedding day was perfect and I had plenty of people come up to me the night of and day after telling me that it was the prettiest venue they have ever seen. I loved everything about the River House and I am so thankful my wedding day was there. The only negative thing I could say about it was that when you put down your deposit, EVEN if something happens on their part: closing, flood, hurricane or the place is destroyed other ways, you don’t get the money back which really irritated us.

My wedding at River House was "over the top!" I even received thank you notes from guests thanking me for inviting them. Constance Wiecking and her staff help you attend to every detail to insure nothing is overlooked. We were so pleased with all of their recommendations. There is no place lovelier in Saint Augustine that the River House to make a wedding memory.

The River House was the perfect venue! They have a beautiful outdoor ceremony area that perfectly frames the St. Augustine Lighthouse, and a gorgeous reception area. I love the gold chandeliers in the ballroom, the circular dance floor is perfect for you first dance (and pictures), and they allow you to decorate with lights hung over the ballroom and dance floor, which made the venue feel even more magical. We were blessed with amazing weather on our wedding day and the outdoor ceremony was completely perfect. Constance and the River House team were very responsive throughout the planning process and everything went so smoothly on our wedding day. I would highly recommend checking this venue out for your wedding!

Not only is River House gorgeous, but Constance and the rest of the River House staff were so great to work with. We booked the ceremony and reception package with serveware, which I definitely recommend for both the savings of an inclusive package and for the ease of having fewer rentals. Constance was extremely helpful and communicative during the planning process. The weather for our brunch wedding fluctuated until the morning of and they carefully monitored the conditions to be ready for any contingency. Fortunately, the rain held off long enough for us to have a beautiful outdoor ceremony and for our guests to enjoy the venue. River House is beautifully designed to facilitate the flow from ceremony to reception. There are SO many great spaces for photos and video, from the fountain to the library to the dock. The flexible venue colors throughout also make it a really great space for whatever your decorative vision is for your wedding. Our guests had a ton of fun and were extremely complimentary about every aspect of our wedding! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect venue to make our wedding day everything we wanted!

The River House team was absolutely wonderful to work with. Constance went above and beyond to help answer any questions that I had throughout the planning process. The night of my event, the River House team was there to help ensure that everything went smoothly. We lucked out and the weather was great, so we were able to have the ceremony outside. There were sailboats anchored all behind the River House, which added such a great touch to our wedding photos. Guests loved the experience of attending a wedding at this location, and many commented on the benefits of having such a large venue with so many separate spaces. It allowed for each guest to enjoy their evening in their own way, rather than everyone in one room together the entire evening. I would recommend considering the small globe lights for the back patio. They look great when they are hung across the back patio when it is dark outside. As far as the value is concerned, the fee to rent the space may seem a little more expensive than some venues in St. Augustine, but I would advise that you take into consideration that the River House provides tables, gold Chiavari chairs, linens, flatware, and glassware. These amenities in addition to having control over the alcohol served at the event make it actually a bit more reasonable than most other St. Augustine venues. If I could go back and plan my wedding again, I would absolutely, without hesitation, choose the River House again.

If you are looking to make St. Augustine your wedding destination, then look no further because the River House is honestly the best venue in this city. Constance and her team are such a pleasure to work with. Constance was so patient and helpful each time we came to walk through and plan. The venue is beautiful regardless, but on your actual wedding day when all the decorations and tables are set, the reception room turns majestic! My family and friends are still talking about how beautiful the venue was. I'm so thankful we chose the River House to celebrate our special day!

When I planned my wedding, my heart was set on St. Augustine. But, the venues were extremely pricey, lumping in catering and bar service. The River House turned out to be not only one of the most beautiful and accommodating locations, but one of the most economical, in terms of allowing other vendors. There is also ample parking, ample space for your guests and the venue is nestled in a quiet part of downtown (a true benefit when you've seen how busy the city has become). Views of the river and the light house had my guests talking for weeks. The staff was very professional during the planning process and extremely accommodating on our wedding day. I couldn't have picked a better location.
