Book Your Wedding with The Treasury on the Plaza
A BALLROOM IN SAINT AUGUSTINE, FL
Set inside the one and only skyscraper of St. Augustine, Florida, The Treasury on the Plaza is part of 24 Cathedral Place, a historic building that’s been standing since 1927. Featuring a rich past full of art, culture and community, the building is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Close to the shores of the Matanzas River, the site’s stunning architecture is a testament to turn-of-the-century grandeur and design. Now focused on hosting wedding ceremonies and receptions, couples on the lookout for a spot teeming with traditional elegance could very well end their search here.
The Grande Ballroom. Quite aptly named, this 1927 ballroom features ornate, towering ceilings and decorative Romanesque columns. Swooping arches span the perimeter of the grand space, which can accommodate as many as 250 guests for a banquet-style reception, complete with a 1927 marble dance floor. Alternatively, up to 450 people can gather in this lavish ballroom for a standing cocktail reception. The room can also be used as a ceremony site, which is transformed by staff members during the cocktail hour, so it’s ready for the reception.
The Vault Bar. Located in the former space of an actual 1927 bank vault, this bar is truly unrivaled in its unique setting. A heavy, circular vault hatch still stands in the room, serving as the entryway to the bar area.
The Exchange Gallery. Just off of the Grande Ballroom, this elegant gallery is the venue’s choice spot for cocktails. The open-concept floor gives guests ample space to mingle with drinks and hors d’oeuvres, while the antique decor can serve as a unique talking point. Alternatively, the gallery is available for a buffet service during the main reception.

The Treasury on the Plaza was the most perfect place I could’ve dreamed of to have our wedding. From the first time we walked through, everyone there was so warm, welcoming and very professional to work with. Our guests still haven’t stopped talking about how amazing this venue is and how we had the most beautiful wedding they’ve ever seen! We had the pleasure of working with Brandy, who was top notch! She had an answer for everything for us and she made planning SO easy. We absolutely love her! All of the staff was so amazing and accommodating, we really had the most perfect wedding day we could ask for. Thank you everyone at the Treasury and Brandy for making our fairytale wedding come true!
There are so many reasons why The Treasury was the perfect venue for us, the location is right near hotels, bars, and a ton of activities. There is something for everyone and it is EXTREMELY beautiful. When I saw the vault I had to have it, its so dang cool that how could you settle for anything else? What transformed the wedding venue for us was the staff, these women are the most helpful, friendly, and overall understanding individuals I have ever met. I usually believe most people are nice when they are working because they are working, as a bartender I know what I'm talking about, but if these ladies were faking it, they are REALLY GOOD at it. They are all gorgeous, of course, but their personalities are dazzling. They went above and WAY beyond any expectations I had and they really seemed to care about how everything turned out. This venue transformed my small vision into a grand occasion. My family has multiple individuals in it who have raved about this venue and the wonderful ladies who work there over and over. I loved my wedding and I just want to relive it because it all happened too fast and it was just so fantastic. Thank you to my girls at the Treasury for giving us such a wonderful day.
I am, of course, adding another 5 star review for The Treasury. As soon as we walked into the venue we knew it was for us. The Treasury has an amazing venue and an even more amazing team. They are so knowledgable and responsive. No question was left unanswered. Lyndsey helped us the most leading up toward the event and was amazing. They helped us have our perfect private ceremony and were so accommodating of a wedding that was a little bit different. Our day was so special, and we were so well taken care of. I can't thank them enough. You won't find a better place to get married!
Finally, after 4 months of wedded bliss, I have to accept that my picture-perfect day has come to the end! Where to even begin? I was born and raised and St. Augustine and knew I had to have my wedding local. In 2014, when the Treasury became a wedding venue, I fell in love. I worked in finance and loved the Vault and converted Bank. The venue was perfect for my vision. The space is absolutely grand with the marble floors, grand entry, classic finishes throughout and modern touches in the Bridal and Groom Suites. There was no way I could tour the Venue and not fall in love! I toured two other properties and they were instant disappointments that could not come any where NEAR the Treasury. Starting the process booking with Jessica, and finishing the day of with Lyndsey was seamless. There was not one detail the venue couldn't accommodate. Lyndsey had every scenario covered; every light, drink, and vendor in order. Brenda and her team checked in throughout our quick planning process (start to finish, 4 months) and made sure we were catered to. I would HIGHLY recommend the Treasury to any Bride, regardless of timeline or budget. STILL wishing my wedding wasn't over. Best Day Ever, thanks to the Treasury on the Plaza Team!
My guests cannot stop talking about how beautiful this venue was. PURCHASE THE LIGHTING PACKAGE IT IS TOTALLY WORTH IT!! The events team (Brandy and Lindsey were assigned to my wedding) are the DEFINITION of professionalism and they have amazing customer service. They worked with me on every detail to make sure the were able to bring my vision to life. They have great instincts and vision for when you cannot put into words what exactly you want & the bar team was amazing! There was never a line at the bar during the cocktail hour or the reception. On the day of the wedding they coordinated perfect with my wedding planner and other vendors -- they constantly were checking in with my husband and me to make sure we had what we needed and if any issues popped up I did not know about it because it was handled before I noticed. Leading up to the wedding they were always accessible to discuss details and pricing for the bar and Brandy accommodated my schedule for the bar tasting and the rehearsal even though they were both at times that were later than usual. Everyone that went to my wedding cannot stop talking about this venue and how beautiful it was and I am so grateful to Brandy and the events team for all their hard work to make my dream wedding a reality
My now-husband gave me a daunting task in searching for our wedding venue. He provided 3 criteria: 1) it should be in Florida, 2) both the ceremony and reception must be indoors, and 3) it should be a place where James Bond might hang out. Now, it’s very tricky to find a venue with a James Bond vibe… but once I found the Treasury, I realized that I’d found the perfect spot. We were sold on the venue before our first visit, but scheduled an initial visit just to ensure that the venue looks as good in person as it does in photos. In person, it’s even more gorgeous. It’s reminiscent of a bygone era… very old Hollywood. It’s so beautiful that you need little in terms of décor. From beginning to end, the folks at the Treasury helped us create a dream wedding. They provided a list of outstanding wedding vendors (required caterer and coordinator options… the others were simply recommendations). And they worked with us on lighting, room floorplans, storage needs and other touches to ensure that our wedding day went smoothly. On our wedding day, we had access to the venue around 1:30 PM for a 5:00 PM ceremony. It was so fun to get ready in the wedding party suites. The bridal suite is beautiful, with a comfortable couch, oversized vanity, refrigerator and private bathroom. It was such a relaxing place to prepare for the big day. The guys had access to a cool lounge area equipped with a poker table and a fridge. The rest of the day flew by. The ceremony and reception were more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. And I’ve been getting nonstop compliments from people who loved the venue and overall experience. Many thanks to the folks at the Treasury for helping create our dream wedding!
Top notch service from the very beginning!! Absolutely beautiful venue!! This was the first venue my husband and I looked at and we fell in love with everything about it!! Super friendly and professional service and the ambiance went absolutely perfect with our Hollywood glam wedding. Not to mention the amazing photos we were able to get both inside and outside. Truly, we have no regrets in choosing The Treasury for our wedding and reception venue. Thanks to everyone who made our special day possible!! Estaña and Anthony Ray
Thank you so much for such a magical night! The Treasury is a stunning venue and the team there was wonderful to work with. They truly helped make our day perfect. We can not thank you enough!
The day was perfect and it was a pleasure working with the staff of the Treasury. Lyndsey helped to make the day prefect. They had more than enough servers so no one had a long wait. From beginning to the end everything was so great. My one small suggestion was with the lighting. It wasn't explained properly and if you want to see the bride walk down the aisle you need to purchase the lighting package. I really think they should just include that in the pricing structure. Other than that all of our guests are still raving about the elegant and exceptional venue.
the treasury on the plaza at st augustine florida is a gorgeous venue, the staff was very professional and was always catering to me the bride, groom and wedding party, it was a very enjoyable and memorable night, we didn’t want the party to end, We love the Treasury and recommend this venue highly
The Treasury is outstanding! Not only is the space gorgeous, but the ladies managing it are wonderful to work with. Lyndsey was our point of contact and she was incredibly engaged and helpful throughout the entire process. Her grace and professionalism made wedding planning and the day of an absolute pleasure. Highly recommend this venue!
Carl and I got married at The Treasury on 11-10-2017. Perfect isn't even the word to describe out day. It was magical! All of our guests have told us that it was one of the best weddings they have ever been to! Lyndsey was beyond amazing during the entire process. She checked in on me and could always pick up when I was feeling stressed. The day went off without a hitch and it was more than I could have ever imagined. We are still reliving moments and all I can do is smile. I can't say enough about this venue- it was worth every penny! Thank you again for being such a huge part of the best day of our lives!
Wow!!! Amazing!!! Truly magical!!! The Treasury on the Plaza was absolutely perfect. Our wedding was a fairytale!!! Lyndsey and everyone at the venue were absolutely wonderful. Right before my husband and I were announced, I said I couldn’t believe I had a Treasury Wedding. If you want magical, perfect and a fairytale wedding, then look no further!!!
A truly perfect and beautiful venue for ceremony and reception!! I absolutely loved everything about it and the staff!! It is seriously set up for a flawless wedding! I still can't believe we found this gem <3
Treasury on the Plaza in St. Augustine, FL, is the most magical venue ever to have for your special day! We instant fell in love with the venue and instantly booked the space. We had both our ceremony and reception there and our wedding guests were in awe! From the gorgeous architecture, the grand ballroom to the custom lighting, it is a MUST see! The staff is so gracious and accommodating not only to us but to our other wedding vendors. Our event planner, Karen Erwin of St. Augustine Weddings & Events, has a fabulous relationship with the Treasury staff who all work so well together. They made is so easy! The staff accommodated every request we asked and made this the most unbelievable fairytale experience! I simply cannot imagine having our wedding anywhere else! Breathtaking!!!
I had a great wedding experience at the treasury. The venue is as beautiful in person as the pictures that you see online! It is clean and well kept. The staff is friendly to work with, organized and professional. I cannot imagine a better place to get married.
The Treasury was such a DREAMY venue! The booking process was a breeze. The sales manager, Jessica, was so accommodating when we asked them to hold our wedding date, and she worked closely with the venue owner to make sure that everything was the way we wanted it! Jessica was also very responsive via email, which was an extremely important quality we expected from vendors. She was happy to answer all of our questions. Once we signed, Jessica passed us along to the event staff. We had a little blip with a vendor that we choose through their Preferred Vendor List, but the staff was so caring about the situation and even asked me for honest feedback so that they could keep the list updated with quality vendors. The amount of empathy she had for my situation surprised me, and I’m happy to see how compassionate she was. Leading up to the wedding, (again) they were SO accommodating. They were happy to work with a certain budget for the bar package. They even brought a bartender in for us, and he made us a series of specialty cocktails that we were able to choose from. The day of the wedding was perfect! I walked in and The Treasury had a bottle of champagne waiting for me! Brandy was SO attentive, and I can’t thank her enough for everything she did for me! She was so calm the whole day and dutifully helped me with every small task. So so thankful for the amazing staff! One thing all brides should be aware of is the bathroom situation. For the large amount of guests the venue accommodates, there’s only 2 bathrooms in the whole venue for guests (one for men and one for women). The stalls were limited (luckily the bridal suite had a separate bathroom so I didn’t have to deal with this situation personally.) My husband said that the toilet in the men’s bathroom was clogged in the beginning of the night and was never resolved. Other than that though, we were SO happy we went with this venue. They were so kind, gracious, and accommodating.
The Treasury was the ONE AND ONLY venue we went to see and knew instantly we wanted to get married there. Allison gave us our initial tour and was so incredibly sweet and informative. Lyndsey became our contact there and she was simply amazing! She handled everything promptly and was very responsive to all questions leading up. She was professional, accommodating, kind and fun! Our wedding turned out PERFECT. Our guests were astonished with the beauty of the Treasury and the amazing staff! It was literally a dream come true and we can’t thank everyone there enough for making our night so special! ♥️
oh my gosh! Not enough nice things can be said about The Treasury and their staff. They made our wedding truly amazing. Big thanks to Lyndsey for being available and able to help me with absolutely anything. Just as an example, we told her the room was a bit hot and not only did she fix the temperature but came to the bridal suite with fans and helped everyone cool off. Not only is it the most beautiful venue in NE Florida, but the staff make it worth every dime!
I cannot say enough good things about the Treasury. Hands down, one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning journey was booking The Treasury. During our tour, my husband and I immediately fell in love with the venue. The space is breathtakingly beautiful! To be fair, we did look into other venues around the area, but nothing compared to what The Treasury offered, the vault bar, high columns, in house uplighting, groom and bridal suite, exchange gallery, and the whole venue exclusively ours on our wedding day? Sign us up! Sold! It was truly a magical day that not only made my husband and me feel special, but our bridal party and wedding guests did as well! The icing on top of the cake was working with Lyndsey and the venue staff. Lyndsey was an absolute dream to work with! She went above and beyond to accommodate all our requests and always did it with a cheerful attitude and smile. Our wedding was an all around amazing experience. Thank you to The Treasury for making our wedding day magical!
The treasury was an amazing venue. Because they have their preferred vendor list any issues that may arise on the day of are handled quickly and with no issues. The lighting package was definitely worth it. Our wedding had roughly 150 people and we felt there was plenty of space for dancing and all associated space related things.
Would do it a million times over!
In one word - this venue was PERFECT! From the moment my (now) husband and I walked into the Treasury on the Plaza, we were overcome by awe, the venue is absolutely breathtaking! The staff and service was equally as amazing as the venue, which can't be confidently stated for many other beautiful wedding venues. The main thing we appreciated most about The Treasury was that we were the ONLY wedding they hosted that day and they only ever host 1 wedding per day. Other venues sometimes shuffle you in and out as one of many other weddings taking place that day, only allowing you a short window for your ceremony or reception. The Treasury gave us a full 11 hour window to plan our day according to our vision. During our planning stage, Brandy was always accessible, quickly responding to emails, calls ,or text messages. The day of the wedding seemed to be perfectly planned and executed according to our requests made during the 30 day walk through planning meeting. On top of it all, you can tell that much thought and preparation went into the layout of this venue. While it is an old bank, every sq ft was maximized and converted into usable space that any wedding party would dream of. The Venue sold me but the bankers lounge sold my fiancé! It's rare that you find a venue that caters to both the bride AND the groom. Thank you Brandy and team - I can not imagine a more perfect wedding than the one you hosted for us at The Treasury on the Plaza, our friends and family will be talking about our wedding for years to come!
As a mother of the Bride you want this day to be one of the most amazing days that your child will always remember. Well, this is completely true only because this Venue and the team we worked with was amazing. From the every day questions you may have to just feeling like there is something you needed to do, they were there for you. We were blessed to have Lyndsey working with us and she exceeded my expectations she made herself always available either by e-mail or her private cell. One week after the wedding we still had wedding guest giving rave reviews about this venue, if there was ever a glitch not one of our guests new about it. If your planning to have an event please consider this Venue. Thank you Lyndsey and all your staff for all you did for us. - the mumblow/barnett family
The Treasury team is expert on all levels. From start to finish, the level of customer service and knowledge shown by the Treasury staff exceeded our expectations. We booked our venue after a one-on-one guided tour and were assigned a personal wedding day coordinator. Bridey, our wedding day coordinator, was extremely professional, friendly, and accessible. As the wedding day approached, Bridey went as far a giving my mom and wedding planner her personal cell phone number so that any need could be answered immediately. My husband and I had special bar requests and they were all graciously grated by Brandy their bar coordinator. Bridey and Brandy took extra time and thought into meeting the needs of our every desire, including adding our favorite bourbon to the bar, sourcing my favorite wine, and assisting in curating our signature cocktail. Small touches like this made my husband and I not only feel like we were their only bride and groom but solidified that we had made the absolute best choice in venue selection. The commitment to service for every one of our guests was what stood out and made "the absolute best wedding I've ever been to" the common theme we heard among guests. We are so grateful to the Treasury family for welcoming our friends and family into their beautiful space and treating us to an enchanting seamless night of celebration.
