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

When I found Dawn at the Wedding Authority, I knew I found someone who would be as enthusiastic as I was. She was always willing to help me find the perfect spot for our ceremony. She even did not flinch when I freaked out about the courtyard being too small to fit all my guests and easily reorganized the ceremony to fit in the foyer. Dawn put up with so many scatter-brained and panicky phone calls. She put my mind at ease every time and made sure that my husband and I had the wedding we dreamed of. It was a perfect day and I could not have done it without her help. Thank you, Dawn! :)

My husband and I decided last minute to get married on our spring break trip. The Wedding Authority had everything set up for us and ready as soon as we got there. They completely set us at ease and helped us get everything squared away via email and phone conversations. They were very professional and friendly. We felt right at home. Dawn took A TON of pictures for us because we had no photographer. She captured evry moment of the ceremony and also took us outside to get more pictures. Being away from home and getting married was a slightly stressful experience for a bride, but they made us both feel right at home. They took the time to get to know about us first, and even made a hometown connection with us. We would recommend them to anyone.

If you are planning to make St. Augustine your wedding destination, then look no further for your wedding planner! My mother and I had the opportunity to work with Dawn Walker, who is absolutely AMAZING! Our wedding would not have ran as smoothly as
it did if it wasn't for her expertise. My husband and I were able to actually stop a few times and cherish all the special moments throughout the night because it flowed so well. All night long our guests were telling us how beautiful the ceremony was and how much fun they were having during the reception. Dawn was such a pleasure to work with and collaborates so well with the other vendors in St. Augustine. Also, she did a fantastic job putting up with our crazy bridal party! That was a job in itself! I feel so thankful and blessed to have had Dawn be a part of our special day. :)

Dawn Walker from The Wedding Authority was our Day of Coordinator and I, as well as my mother, sisters, and husband, could not be more pleased!! The entire process with Dawn from the planning, to the rehearsal, to the day of was just more than I could have ever hoped for. Dawn was sure to capture every detail leading up to the big day and made every, minor detail perfect on the day of. I am positive Dawn did way more behind the scenes than I could have ever imagined. For instance, the lighting I had bought for the table settings as the reception did not end up working and she had a back up plan and was able to get it all together without me even knowing until after the wedding (and it looked absolutely phenomenal). She was a very valuable asset to our wedding day as she helped decorate, get everyone where they needed to be (on time), and made sure that my family and I were completely stress free on wedding day. If she can coordinate a wedding in St. Augustine while the 450th Anniversary of St. Augustine was going on in the background, I am positive she could coordinate anyone's wedding. Dawn is worth any value! She even had an emergency tide-to-go pen when I spilled on my dress AND an emergency sewing kit when my bustle broke. She is incredible and we highly recommend her to any bride and groom!!

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!!
