We are a comprehensive special events consulting company located in historic St. Augustine, Florida, specializing in weddings design. Our founder has more than 30 years of wedding planning and coordinating services experience. Click here for our latest reviews at Florida Wedding and Event Guide!

Our on-site services include:
Wedding Coordinating Wedding and Event Planning Chapel Officiates, Minister Civil Ceremonies Courtyard or Garden Wedding Venues Sala Menendez Banquet Room Wedding Receptions, Parties and more!
Combine this with the team's banquet rooms, catering, floral, hairstyling, officiating and photography experience and you'll see why we are The Wedding Authority!

Our team of wedding professionals combine creativity and style with precise planning, a cool head, and the experience necessary for the creation of wonderful memories for you and all to enjoy. We have experience in arranging both traditional and contemporary weddings - sometimes even wild and wacky. Don’t be afraid to ask.

A successful wedding or wedding and reception is just like a successful business - it starts with a plan. You are the CEO with the vision and it's up to all of your team to complete the job while keeping you within your budget. This is where we come in!

Your friends, family, and bridal party are an integral part of any wedding with the endless pre-wedding tasks. Being on hand to comfort, console, and multi-task AND being party-hearty at all bridal events along with stuffing envelopes is about all most can manage gracefully. In addition to all of these tasks - the details, endless phone calls and appointments are more than most can work into an already busy schedule. You don’t want to let the most important day of your life be sandwiched in between someone else's agenda. That is why you hire a professional Wedding Planner and Coordinator.

We offer wedding services that range from a simple phone call to arrange an officiate to perform your ceremony to assisting you with every detail needed on your day. We have spent years pulling together information that you need in order to have the best our beautiful city of St. Augustine has to offer. Don’t be fooled by the fact you are only going to have a “small party” or just something simple. It takes as much planning for a small wedding as a large affair - you just have to order more and think bigger.

Please take a few minutes to review our packages and pricing. Let us answer any questions about us or how we can work for you. We are sure you will find that having our professional team on your side will mean that your day is full of nothing but beautiful memories. There are hundreds of details that must be taken care of before you walk down that aisle. The Wedding Authority offers a variety of services to fit your every wedding need.

Call us at 904-826-0166 for more information to ensure that your dreams come true.

Sincerely,

Bill and Carla Young Read less

OK, I do not know where to even start but I have to say ...AMAZING!!!! Dawn is the best. She has not only become my coordinator but my BESTIE of all BESTIES...We were looking at venues when I met her and even though we did not book our venue at the lightener Museum we gained the Best coordinator anyone could possibly find. Our wedding is in September 2015.. I have no worries as she is handling it all for me. I need anything, SHE has been THERE!!! She knows what I want and understands my quirks ... She works really hard to make sure your day will be exactly the way you want it. I can not wait to brag further after the date.... Feeling sooo relaxed and at peace... Thanks Wedding Authority...

I live in Atlanta, but had my wedding in St. Augustine. As a bride, this a HUGE recipe for stress. But with Dawn Walker I could not have been in better hands. She was kind, organized and always responsive. Her vendor recommendations were 100% spot on. During my wedding weekend, no one could believe how calm I was--but that was all thanks to Dawn! She had a back up plan for rain, kept my groomsmen in line, and even made sure my flowers showed up at the right place (after I told them to go somewhere else). At my reception, my eyelash came unglued and EVEN then she quickly remedied the situation. Dawn is nothing short of amazing! You will not be disappointed having her as your wedding planner!!

Carla and Rev. Young helped us make our daughter's wedding day a small, intimate, and elegant event. They were patient, friendly, and genuine. By the end of the wedding they seemed more like old friends. We are so grateful to them for helping us to make her dreams come true and creating a lasting memory!

I would not have made it through all the planning and day of the wedding without Dawn. She was so professional and helpful and fun. I cannot say enough good things about her. She suffered through many emails and questions and always seemed happy to hear from me. She kept the wedding day running so smoothly without even seeming to be moving things along. Hiring The Wedding Authority was the smartest move I made when I originally thought I could do it all myself. My only problem is now I miss Dawn and wish she could organize the rest of my life for me. Thank you Dawn.....

I would not have survived this wedding planning process without Dawn Walker! She made me feel so comfortable and secure that everything would be taken care of- she took so much stress off of me so that I could actually enjoy being with friends and family! I did most of the planning myself, along with my mom, but when it came down to the month of the wedding- Dawn took over and took charge making sure all of the details fell into place. On our wedding day, she and Carla Young were so lovely to work with and made all of our guests feel so welcome! If I could do it all over again, I would definitely hire The Wedding Authority again! Best money we ever spent! It is crucial to hire a wedding planner so that the burden doesn't fall on your friends and family- they should be able to enjoy the day without worrying about the details. Thanks again ladies- y'all rock!!

The Wedding Authority is amazing! My sister and her husband used them for their wedding and when it came time to start planning my wedding, I just had to use them as well! Carla is the sweetest person I think I have ever met! She is super helpful in giving lists of preferred vendors and really knows St. Augustine. While before the wedding day The Wedding Authority is helpful, it doesn't even compare to what they do for you on the actual wedding day! It was practically monsooning on our wedding day and Bill and Carla did not miss a beat. We changed the ceremony to the backup rainy day chapel that I never really wanted, but would rather be dry than anything! When five minutes before the ceremony time it stopped raining, they moved everything back outside to the Lightner Museum courtyard where we always wanted to do it (even with emergency umbrellas hidden on the bridge)! Everything went so smoothly after that and we had the best day of our lives! I can't thank them enough!!

I can't say enough great things about The Wedding Authority and Dawn in particular. As we were planning our wedding in Saint Augustine from San Francisco, Dawn was there every step of the way. She was able to point us to the right vendors for our needs and was always there to bounce ideas off of. She truly puts her heart into planning your wedding to make sure your day is perfect. She is extremely well organized and detail oriented. If you want your wedding day to go smoothly and to not have to worry about the details on your special day, don't hesitate to contact Dawn. We had a perfect day and truly enjoyed our wedding because of her.
