River House was our dream location!! We always wanted to get married in a church and then later decided against it...when we saw how beautiful the ceremony setting was at River House!! All of our guests said that it was the "picture perfect" location to have a wedding. Constance and the staff were exceptional. They were always available to help or answer any and all of our questions/concerns. Our wedding day was more than perfect thanks to River House. Choosing River House to have your wedding is the best decision that you could ever make.
The River House was the perfect venue for our wedding this past Saturday. From the beginning, Constance was the epitome of what every bride needs in a vendor; she is super responsive, caring, detailed, and fun to work with- she truly made our wedding something to remember for not only us but our guests. We booked over a year and a half ago with them, and Constance quickly remembered anything that we had spoken about each time we talked. I don't know how she does it!! The River House staff was amazing and helpful on our day and truly showed that they love what they do (thank you ladies for all of your assistance on Saturday, I don't know what we would have done without you!!).
I highly recommend the River House to anyone that is looking for a venue that will completely wow their guests. The scenery, service and value is incomparable in the St. Augustine area and you will not regret your decision. Our guests cannot stop raving about the venue, as it truly is a hidden gem in St. Augustine.
Thank you again River House for creating a memory that we will never forget!
When we were looking for the venue for our wedding reception we envisioned a beautiful venue with stunning views and an atmosphere that made our guests feel welcome and comfortable. This is exactly what we felt when we entered the doors of the River House. We could just see our friends and family on the observatory dock overlooking the lighthouse laughing while catching up and enjoying the festivities. We thought about our first dance on the beautiful wood dance floor with everyone surrounding watching. We knew this had to be our perfect venue!
The entire team at the River House went above and beyond to make our wedding the perfect day that we had dreamed of it being. Constance is top notch in this industry and truly has the experience that towers above the rest. The memories we have of our wedding day and the River House will last a lifetime and we couldn't even begin to thank them enough for their attention to detail and professionalism throughout the entire process.

Thank you again River House for making everlasting memories that my husband and all of our guests will cherish for a lifetime. Stephanie and Jonar Delmundo
Thank you so much! We are so happy that you enjoyed your special day! We wish you both a lifetime of happiness!
I looked at many venues and the River House took my breath away the moment I walked in. The service is also amazing. I couldn't have asked for a better venue for my wedding.
We had a great time at the River House. The staff is amazing, and everyone said the venue was beautiful. Definitely need to book early, but it's worth the wait!
We knew when we first saw The River House that it was the perfect setting for our October Wedding! Constance and her staff were more then helpful leading up to the day and on our wedding day, we could not be more pleased with our event here! I don't know what kind of magic they had to work to get the dolphins to jump and the double rainbow to hang, but our day could not have gone better!
I loved everything about that place and the people who work there are wonderful and very helpful . Such a beautiful place
Bill and I looked at many venues and left each a little disappointed, feeling like we just may have to settle. Then we found the River House. This was the perfect venue for us as it had all of our must-haves: an outdoor area for cocktail hour with a killer view, a large, open, outdoor feeling reception room, a large dance floor, and in a great location. Constance and her crew were a joy to work with. I highly recommend visiting the River House and considering it for your event, you won't be disappointed.
As soon as my (then) fiance and I walked into the River House and met with Constance we knew immediately that this is the place we wanted to have our wedding ceremony and reception! We booked it as soon as we went over the details because it was so highly rated. The River House is a great value for the money and honestly reduces a lot of headaches and stress since in their packages you can use all their china, silverware, tables, linens and chiavari chairs all included in the price so you don't have to run around and find ANOTHER vendor to do this. Also, the huge beautiful circular dance floor is perfect with a backdrop of the intracoastal and lighthouse. Everyone always says "Oh don't get too stressed on your wedding day because something is bound to go wrong." Well, thanks to Constance and her staff's great help, super personalities and wonderful recommendation of vendors I can honestly say that ABSOLUTELY NOTHING went wrong on our wedding day! All the guests were raving about how beautiful the venue was. All in all if you want to have a spectacular wedding without any headaches (who doesn't?) then you should definitely consider using River House as your wedding venue because I can guarantee you and your guests will not be disappointed!
Our experience at The River House was absolutely AMAZING!!! Not only is the venue absolutely breath taking, but the people are lovely to work with. From the moment I saw this place, I knew it was where we would be married, and when Trip saw it and met the wonderful people, he was sold as well. Throughout the entire process, Constance and her team were incredible to work with, and very responsive and helpful with ANY questions or concerns that I had. When it came down to our day at the River House, it did not go quite as planned due to the weather. Along with everything that we did on our own, the team at River House helped make our special day even more amazing than I could have asked for!!! It was truly spectacular!!
After a lot of searching in the St. Augustine area this was the most bang for your buck. The staff was the most spectauclar staff I could have asked for, they were so accomodating and made our day so special. The view is amazing, and the venue is large and offers wonderful parking (which is hard to find downtown!) I would (and have) recommended this venue to others for any event!
River House is a phenomenal wedding venue - beautifully elegant building with a great view! Our guests were very impressed - many of them made a point to tell us how much they loved the location. If that weren't enough, the staff here is wonderful! Constance is a pleasure to work with - she even helped answer questions that had nothing to do with the venue.
If you are getting married in NE Florida - check out this venue - you are sure to fall in love!
The Riverhouse was the perfect place for our wedding! Our guests could not stop raving about how beautiful the location was and how much they enjoyed being there. What was nice was that is was so spacious, that our guests had options to hang out inside, on the patio, the dock, or even the boardwalk.
The best part of having our wedding at the Riverhouse was working with Constance. From the beginning, all the way through to the wedding day, she was amazing to work with. Constance was always extremely quick to respond to e-mails and calls and never minded assisting us by giving us vendor reccomendations. She also went out of her way to add special personal touches on the wedding day and made the entire planning process so smooth. I also want to acknowledge Betsey and Elise, the staff from the Riverhouse that coordinated the wedding the day of. They were truly remarkable to work with and were extremely friendly. They were like ninjas on the day of the wedding and set everything up really quickly. I highly reccomend the Riverhouse to everyone looking to get married or host an event. The location is sensational, the staff is truly remarkable and made the entire planning process easy and enjoyable, and finally, the amount of things that are included in the package price made planning a lot simpler. It was truly the best day of my life and I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out.
We cannot say enough good things about River House!! First and foremost, Constance and her staff are an absolute pleasure to work with! She is extremely quick and efficient responding to emails and phone calls, and literally held our hands through the entire planning process. We asked so many questions while planning, and she was just such a breath of fresh air to work with! Every detail was executed exactly as we planned and discussed, and turned out exactly as I pictured it to look!
This venue literally has everything you could ever want in a reception hall! From the huge wooden front doors, to the library, to the terrace, to the ballroom, and to the dock...it is just absolutely perfect! We looked at two other venues before we went to River House, and the moment we opened the front doors we knew it was exactly where we wanted our reception!
The prices for River House are also very reasonable, and some of the cheapest in the area! Granted, you only get the facility for 8 hours total even though they only do one event per day, and if you want to add hours it will cost you BUT it is well worth it in the end! Find somewhere else to cut down on your budget, because every penny is worth paying for this venue! EVERYTHING is included, and I mean everything--tables, chairs, linens, china, flatware, glassware...everything! And there are also options of adding things like high-top tables for cocktail hour. We even priced out renting everything we needed invidiually instead of using their things to see if we could save a little money. The price to rent linens, china, and flatware ALONE were more than the difference of the next package up that included all of it. We received so many compliments, many that it was the most beautiful reception and venue that people had ever been to--you don't get a better compliment than that!
Look no further when you are looking for a wedding venue. We can't say enough good things about River House. THANK YOU Constance and to your team for making our wedding day SO perfect!

We were elated with how everything went the day of our wedding at the River House.
Not only is the venue gorgeous, but the staff is superb. Constance went over every single detail with us during our walkthrough and was always extremely helpful, prompt and pleasant when answering any questions that we had by phone or email, no matter how trivial.
The day of our wedding two other staff members were there to supervise, they were also extremely professional and helpful. When we arrived, everything was well underway and setup exactly as we had discussed at the walkthrough. At one point, the clasp of my necklace came undone and dropped somewhere, one of the staff members brought it to me before I even realized it was missing! I couldn't believe that she recognized that it was mine!
Our wedding went smoothly and if there were any problems, I didn't hear about them. All of our guests were talking about how perfect the venue was weeks after it was over.
There is no other place in St. Augustine we would have rather had our ceremony and reception. The bay front view speaks for itself, it's breathtaking.
I highly and sincerely recommend this venue, you will not be disappointed! - Andrew and Margaret Petty
I could not have asked for a better location and venue for my wedding. Everything was perfect!
First of all, The River House is the most romantic, elegant venue in St.Augustine!!! I was looking for a venue that could hold over 200 people, and the River House was one of the few that could accomodate that... AND there is on site parking (which is rare in St. Augustine). I got so many compliments from my guests on how beautiful the venue was! I had my wedding and reception on site and everything was absolutely beautiful! Constance was beyond helpful and responded to every e-mail within hours. The month-of walk through with her put me completely at ease. I would recommend the River House to anybody and everybody!
My wedding was absolutely beautiful! The River House is St. Augustine,Fl is the perfect setting for a romantic inspired event! Constance was a pleasure to work with and every need and want was taken care of. My wedding was a dream come true!
AMAZING place to have your wedding. Just had my wedding there this summer. The location is beautiful on the water, and Constance is amazing to work with! I would absolutely recommend this place!
Wonderful venue - absolutely beautiful. Constance and her team were a joy to work with.
