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.

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.
I got married at the treasury august 10, 2017 & it was the BEST day of my life. When my fiancé and I were looking at venues we came across some nice ones, but the MINUTE we walked into the treasury we knew it was the place for us. Lyndsey and everyone at the treasury were so amazing & made sure everything went to plan. Literally nothing went wrong on my day and my guests can't stop telling me how beautiful the venue was! I would 120% recommend this venue to anyone looking for a beautiful and unique wedding!
On July 9, 2017 I had the pleasure of having my wedding at the Treasury on the Plaza and this was the best day of my life and the venue helped execute that vision. Everything about the Tresury was perfect, from the venue to accommodations all the way to the staff. They work as a team and anyone is ALWAYS willing and able to help at any given moment. My manager was Bridey and she was AMAZING!! I could go on and on about both the venue and staff but i will cut it short to say, if you plan to wed Treasury on the Plaza will give you what you are looking for and more. The Albertie Family!
As soon as I walked into the Treasury I knew that it was the place that I wanted to get married! My wedding day was perfect and everyone was blown away by the venue especially the vault bar. Brandy from the Treasury was very sweet and easy to work with and helped make my wedding day go smoothly. My wedding guests are still talking about how beautiful the venue was! I couldn't have imagined getting married anywhere else and I definitely recommend the Treasury to anyone!!
Simply amazing. We fell in love with this venue as soon as we came to visit and the staff helped seal the deal! Allison helped us throughout the booking/paperwork process and is just absolutely the sweetest! She answered all of our (many) questions and worked with us every step of the way to make sure we could line up a date with the basilica next door. We also had a lot of budget concerns, so she walked through every option based on day and month. Once we were booked, Brandy was our FABULOUS venue coordinator. She helped us with all of the details: bar packages, lighting technician, parking, etc. She was extremely responsive, kind, and downright awesome. She worked with our budget and our timeline to help make our day perfect. She also went above and beyond to make sure we could have our favorite type of beer on tap! We can't thank the Treasury team enough for their help with making our day amazing!
The Treasury on the Plaza is a top-notch venue! We are truly blessed to have found this gem for our wedding. Bridey and Brandy were amazing partners who helped make our day incredibly beautiful! The Treasury has a wonderful list of approved vendors, and after using their services, it makes total sense--working with established vendors only ensures flawless execution of your event. If you do have others you want to use, there is a process to get them approved. Thank you guys so much for all you do and the extra nice touches that were unexpected! We love you all very much!

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!
