We just had our wedding at the Villa Blanca this past weekend and it was nothing short of perfect. The venue was gorgeous and the event went off without a hitch thanks in large part to our coordinator, Meghan. The food was wonderful, there was plenty of space for our 125 guests, and everyone was very accommodating.

My husband and I can't express enough how perfect our wedding was this past Thursday (11/10/2016). Our event was a destination wedding as we do not live in the Saint Augustine area. From day one we had a great experience with the staff at The White Room. We initially met with Jenny and she has just the best bubbly personality! Meghan was our next point of contact through our planning process and she really helped us make the right decision in choosing their Villa Blanca location. Shannon was our assigned event manager and she was truly amazing! Shannon accommodated everything we asked for and assisted in so many different ideas we had. Allen finished the night off as our reception coordinator and he was perfect. Allen made sure we had everything we needed and wasn't too overbearing. They even packed up some leftover dessert and an extra plate of dinner for my husband and I! Honestly, we were nervous about how our day was going to turn out since we were planning things from a distance but everyone at The White Room made our day more amazing than we could have ever imagined!

First Impression: Ballroom - IN LOVE for reception. Villa Blanca - IN LOVE for ceremony.
If you're able to book both, I highly recommend it. We were married on a Tuesday, so we had a lot of options.

We were a little turned off by the group menu tasting event...until we went to it. Seeing the staff function in event mode, before the wedding, was a nerve calming experience. The food was great, the room was cool, the wait staff was friendly and the bar kept up with the crowd.

We upgraded to the coordinator gold package, to ensure the hand made centerpieces & decor could be set up the day of, with out headache. Everything was set up perfectly! I'm so grateful that my vision came to life, without me having to micromanage the staff, or do it myself.

The Food: Was DELICIOUS!
We opted to go away from the traditional buffet or seated dinner. We chose to do the action stations (Salad Bar, two risottos, Ahi Tuna & Prime Rib). We were so grateful to have different options, to really make it our own. Our wedding was travel themed, so having different international options tied the details together. Everyone loved the uniqueness of the menu and everything was cooked to perfection. There was more than enough food & our coordinator packed us a big to go bag. Also, the bacon wrapped scallops were amazing!

The little things:
We were having an "adult reception" to avoid having to pay for the added security. However, we had 3 teenage cousins coming to the ceremony, who were going to go back to their hotel during the cocktail hour & the parents come back for the reception. BUT we were married 2 days before hurricane Matthew hit, and the rain was coming in hard. Our coordinator told us not to worry about it, there was more than enough food and grabbed 3 more chairs.

We couldn't be happier. Truly grateful. Our wedding day was flawless, the perfect start to our happily ever after!

My husband and I accidentally stumbled upon the white room, while we were seeking refuge from the rain during a trip to st. Augustine when we first started dating. We knew from that day, this was our dream location. A couple of years later, he proposed in st. Augustine and the white room fit us in the next day. We were blown away and booked our wedding within the week. We were married in July and it has taken me this long to compose a review because how can you possibly express in words how amazing the white room is...? They are a fundamental reason our wedding was a fairytale. Shannon was amazing and was always there for us, even when what I needed wasn't in her job description. When our officiant bailed on us last minute, Shannon secured us a new one within the day, When I started to dip into stressed bridezilla territory, Shannon was a constant stabilizing force, always making me feel confident that the white room had my best interests at mind. They throw so many weddings each year, but still deliver such personalized service. Oh and the food was delicious! Our guests still rave about our wedding on the regular! Thank you, white room, for the wedding of my dreams!

If you would like a stress-free wedding and reception, I would highly recommend the White Room/Villa Blanca in St. Augustine, Florida. St. Augustine has a charm all its own and it is a beautiful city. The coordinators/planners that work at the White Room are professional and organized. Our coordinator was Kelsi and she was always so prompt in communicating with us. Even if I could not talk to Kelsi when I called, the other planners were always so kind and eager to help you in any way they could. The White Room was respectful of our wishes. The Villa Blanca is such an elegant site and it really needs very little in the way of decoration. The food is fantastic-the only problem we had was narrowing down our choices after the tasting! On the day of the wedding, there were all these little small acts of service, such as water for the guests before the ceremony, etc... that were timely, helpful, and kind. Our guests kept raving about the venue and the food. Thank you to Kelsi and the staff of the White Room for making our daughter's wedding go smoothly and an occasion of joy!

Our family can't stop raving about The White Room and our Wedding Coordinator, Meghan Berman. Location, Architecture, Ambiance and the wonderful staff will blow you away. We can't thank Meghan enough for everything she did at the wedding and making our day AMAZING and STRESS FREE. Meghan's insight, recommendations of vendors, her friendliness and attention to detail was incredible. The menu choices as well as variety and accommodating all dietary specifications and the special touches with drinks, appetizers and desserts are well worth the money and especially delicious. We are still getting messages about how much our family and friends enjoyed the wedding and how beautiful everything was. St Augustine, The White Room and Meghan will hold a special place in our hearts always!

I cannot say enough about The White Room! I could not have asked for a more beautiful and fun wedding! The venue was so gorgeous, the food was amazing and the service was impeccable. Shannon was our planner and she did such an amazing job with everything! I must have emailed and called them a million times while planning everything but all the staff were so kind and helpful. I planned our wedding from out of town and they made it so easy, with wonderful suggestions for vendors and also for our guests. There wasn't one thing I would change about The White Room!

We had our own day of coordinator but the one from the white room who was our go to was Meghan. I cannot say enough good things about her. I spoke to her more than any other vendor. We must have exchanged a million emails. The food was amazing. We did a cocktail style reception and served 3 food stations and the rest all passed appetizers. The location was beautiful. I worried because there were two other weddings going on at the same time, we worried that the sound would bleed thru from the other weddings, it never did. Our guests never crossed paths with the other weddings, they had separate times and entrances for each wedding. The white room prices were a lot more reasonable than the other wedding locations we visited in St. Augustine . It is the best bang for your buck and it's the prettiest and best food. The white room does offer full coordination, if I had known Meghan was going to be our coordinator I would have picked her to do full wedding coordination she is absolutely amazing and sweet. Thank you white room and Meghan for such an amazing wedding.

Thank you so much for your kind words, Sarah. It was really great working with you and that picture of you and Brendan under the chandelier is one of my all time favorites! I hope you both are doing well!
