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.

One word: FLAWLESS! Our wedding was absolutely perfect thanks to Kim and her wonderful team. Everything went off without a hitch, which made for the most amazing memories for our family and friends. They are still raving about how beautiful, fun, and accommodating everything was. We planned our wedding from another state and I could not have been more impressed with how everything came together for our big day. Thank you for making our wedding planning experience stress-free with no regrets. It was a day we will never forget!
This place is absolutely breathtaking! I fell in love with it from the moment I walked in and I knew there was no other place I could get married! My guests were just as amazed when they saw it as well! I cannot thank Kim, Allison and the entire Treasury crew enough for all they did to make my day so perfect!
LOVED IT! Our wedding was magical. Thank you Bridey!
We fell in love with The Treasury on the Plaza from the moment we walked in. There is simply no other place like it. Our wedding was an absolute dream thanks to the beauty of this place and the amazing team that made it happen. We absolutely loved working with Kim Hutson, she was professional and so attentive to detail, answered all of our crazy questions and requests and made sure every single detail was taken care of. Everything from the amazing lighting they provide, the uniqueness of the bar, the history of the place and the amazing service by every single one of their staff members. Our guests were absolutely wowed and we had the wedding of our dreams. Thanks for making our day so unforgettable, we could never thank you enough :)
I got married at this beautiful venue March 3, 2017. It truly is a magical place. It was nothing short of an amazing experience from the start. Kim and all the coordinators are professional and talented. It was such a pleasure working with the whole staff. They really made our dreams come true!!
I am getting married in April of next year and can't wait to host the reception at The Treasury! The staff has been so friendly, accommodating and professional and the venue truly captures what I love about St. Augustine. The staff has been helpful in sending courtesy reminders for payments, making vendor recommendations and is always willing to answer my many questions. Can't wait til my wedding day at The Treasury!
The Treasury on the Plaza was the best decision that my husband and I made throughout the entire wedding planning process. We instantly knew this was the venue for us from the moment we entered the grand ballroom. This venue is seriously WOW. The historic charm and elegance of The Treasury create a space that is completely unique and unparalled. The vaulted ceilings, finishes, and lighting at The Treasury allow endless possibilities to create your once in a lifetime event. The vault bar speaks for itself and makes for the most incredible photos and memories. The staff at The Treasury was so accommodating and wonderful to work with every step of the way from our initial Christmas Eve tour with Brandy all the way to our wedding day. I completely trusted The Treasury team to ensure our wedding came off without a hitch. The Treasury on the Plaza was the perfect venue and will forever hold a special place in our hearts. You really can't go wrong with The Treasury on the Plaza, a true gem of St. Augustine!!
The Treasury did an amazing job for our wedding! Everyone was super helpful and accommodating. All of our guests had a blast!
I fell in love with The Treasury the moment I walked in and knew that there was no need to look anywhere else. Alison is the most kind, sincere, sweet lady I have ever met. The Treasury is so lucky to have her. Its an absolutely beautiful wedding venue. Classy and elegant. My wedding was perfect. I felt like a princess and the guests still talk about how beautiful everything was. The staff at The Treasury on our big day were so professional and organized. Bridey was our venue coordinator and helped make sure everything ran smooth. She was so great! We just want to get married there over and over. Thank you for helping make our dream wedding come true.
From the MOMENT of walking into the double doors leading into the reception space, we knew this is where we were going to get married. Our sales rep Allison was the sweetest and most genuine person who didn't have to do much persuading to get us to use The Treasury. As soon as we decided, the planning began which led us to Kim who also was just as sweet and AMAZING at her job. She kept in contact with everything and helped us make the right decisions from the table arrangements, to the lighting, and even the specialty cocktails. The Treasury in itself is a SPECTACULAR venue and I'm so lucky we were able to have our most memorable day there. ALL of our guests raved about how BEAUTIFUL it is and you really felt like you were walking back in time with the vault and the pillars and just the overall look. I can't say anything negative about The Treasury because they really do make you feel right at home. They went above and beyond any expectations we had and even were just as engaged with our guests the night of. We can't thank them enough for truly making our day as special as it was and if we could relive it again, we would in a heartbeat.
FANTASTIC! From the moment we met with our SalesPerson Allison I knew we were in perfect hands! My Father is a Director at The Knot so we had some high expectations and they delivered in every way! BEAUTIFUL, EXCEPTIONAL, STUNNING, just some of the words that our guests described the venue and the service. Kim and all the staff at the venue made us feel very special through the entire process. Why wouldn't you want to get married here? It was PERFECT!
Hands down the best venue in town! It looks like a big city venue right in the heart of downtown St. Augustine. The sales staff and events team really go above and beyond to make your wedding dreams come true. They even greeted me with a smile every time I was in town and popped up at their venue. I looked at other venues around town and they really just don't compare. The treasury is worth every penny! My photos look fantastic and my guests were very impressed!
I cannot say enough great things about this venue! Everyone was amazing! All of the guests kept telling us it looked like a fairytale castle!
Magical, amazing...a dream come true!
My wedding at The Treasury was truly a dream! The Treasury worked so well with all of our vendors and especially my wedding planner to make the day perfect! My guests were blown away by our venue, especially by the lighting and vault bar!
We had our dream wedding at The Treasury and I wouldn't have had it any other way. The venue is just breathtaking and the people who work there and help organize everything are fabulous! Our guests were blown away with the room, which we used for both our ceremony and reception. We were very happy with everything and love looking back at the photos. ❤️ Thanks again!
The moment I walked into the Treasury I cried (and this is not typical of me). It is a stunningly beautiful venue and you can't help but imagine beginning your forever there. What began as love at first sight quickly turned into a happily committed relationship. Everyone at the Treasury is professional to the utmost and also has a way of making you feel like your wedding is the most important to them. My favorite detail from our wedding reception (a hot chocolate bar with gourmet fixings) was the masterful idea and execution of Treasury staff. While I don't plan on getting married again I could be tempted to, just to have another wedding at The Treasury on The Plaza ...seriously the experience was that wonderful :)
I loved this venue so much! I used the space for my Friday night dinner prior to the wedding. Alison & Brandy were so accommodating of all of our requests, especially since we were having an indian event and required different decor, music, and set up then they were used to! They handled it like pros! This place is perfect for the old town charm that St. Augustine has with the bank vault/bar, tall columns and history. I would highly recommend this venue to couples who are interested!
The moment I walked into "The Treasury" I knew it was the the one! I got goosebumps and started tearing up. This is where I wanted to promise my future husband forever! I couldn't imagine any other place more beautiful or perfect for us! It was truly the wedding of my dreams! I want to go back and do it again!!!!!!
No question, the #1 wedding venue! The Treasury is not your “run-of-the-mill” standard country club or ordinary ballroom setting for a wedding. We fell in love with this place from the moment we walked through the doors. After seeing the perfect combination of elegance, history and uniqueness, we knew this was where we would say “I do.” Imagine as the bride, the doors opening and seeing the magnificent marble floors and towering, stunning columns that create the most perfect walkway to your groom. This was OUR wedding day and it truly made the moment magical. Our reception was a unique experience for all of our guests as the vault bar, restored from the original vault in the bank, not only functioned as a bar, but also served as a gorgeous backdrop to all the festivities. We cannot give enough credit and express enough gratitude to ALL of the fantastic staff at the Treasury. From Allison giving the initial tour, to Brandy coordinating from start to finish, it made our special day all we could have hoped for…and more. Brandy went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable, answered our questions, and worked flawlessly with our entire collection of vendors. Look no further than The Treasury on The Plaza for your wedding venue. It will undoubtedly capture the “happily ever after” that you are looking for. Thanks again to the Treasury team!
Hands Down, Best Venue Ever!!! We accidentally found this venue Googling after a disappointing tour of another venue. So since we were already in town, we stopped by... Pictures, as amazing as they are, does this place no justice. This place is fit for royalty... Mrs. Allison was very accommodating!!! Although we didn't have an appointment and closing time was near, she gave us a full tour and overview and sold us on the spot. We booked the venue that day!!! The planning and coordinating was super fun and easy too. Brandy's wonderful personality, sense of humor, promptness, and ability to go with the flow made Bridezilla nonexistent. She made wedding planning easy. Their people skills takes The Treasury beyond a pretty picture, it's an amazing experience creating a fairy tale dream. You must see for yourself!!!
The Treasury had our hearts before ever stepping foot in the venue itself, between their website & excellent reviews, we knew this was the place we would celebrate our marriage with our closest friends & family. However, we did look at other place's accommodations, prices, etc before coming to the conclusion that our hearts were right all along. The staff are absolutely incredible (shout out to my girls Brandy & Britt), the bride & groom's suites are beautiful, the bar will leave you speechless and the dance floor will keep you dancing all night!! We look back at our wedding night a lot and there isn't one thing we would do differently and we cannot wait until we can go to another event at this venue and dance the night away!
The moment we walked into The Treasury we knew this was the place we wanted to have our wedding reception. It was classic, elegant and the staff was warm and welcoming. Allison made us feel right at home on our tour and quickly responded to all of our questions which made the sales process very easy. Brandy was so accommodating to to all of my requests and made the planning process so much fun! The day of our wedding, Brandy worked alongside my planner and took care of everything so that I could enjoy getting ready with my bridesmaids. I could not have imagined a more beautiful venue or city to be married in! Thank you to everyone at The Treasury for making it all possible!
The most beautiful place to have a wedding! This venue was unique and just gorgeous. The vault makes this venue different from others and it caught our eyes immediately. It made our wedding day perfect. The staff went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly and stress free. They make sure you are taken care of and having the best time you can.
