I just went to a friend’s wedding in St. Augustine last weekend! I think she had around 90 – 100 guests, the ceremony was at the Lightner Museum, then we took a quick trolley tour that ended at the reception location – A1A Ale Works. It was very fun, St. Augustine is beautiful!

I am getting married in St. Augustine this coming Spring. It is a destination wedding for us since we live in Dallas. We are only having around 50-60 guests. 

There are several less expensive places to host a reception there is St. Augustine (White Room, San Sebastian Winery, etc), but depending on what you want to spend the Casa Monica will be probably the most expensive option.

No – go to the River House in St. Augustine. It is brand new, not even a year old. Right on the water – absolutly breathtaking … You will thank me!

I am not getting married in St. Augustine, but I have had a few friends have receptions at The White Room. They have three levels for reception spaces including a rooftop area that is so nice!  http://www.ocwhiteroom.com/

I’m looking to get married in St Augustine in September and live about two hours away.    I have heard of The White Room and A1A Ale house.  Online, they have the same address.  Is it the same place? Two floors?  Did the White Room used to be the Ale house?

I got married at the Lightner Museum in St. Augustine and I had my reception at The Tasting Room.  They can only accommodate about 60 people (we had 49 total) but the food was delicious! and they bent over backwards for me.  I heard the White Room is nice but the people are difficult to work with.  Good luck!

@RebeccaLynn16: The White Room is owned by O.C. White’s.  A1A is also is the same building, but the white room is the top floors.

@MsDoxie I have heard the River House is gorgeous for events.  I’ve driven past it – great location, and looks fabulous from the outside.   

@Nona49 Great idea to have your reception at the Tasting Room!  They are an amazing tapas restaurant, beautiful inside and the staff is very professional.  I never even thought you could essentially rent it out for the night!

I am getting hitched on June 11, 2011 and I had the hardest time finding a venue that will hold my large amount of guests.  Every place I looked at that could hold 300+ people were ridiculously expensive (20,000+) or booked (The River House – gorgeous).  I ended up renting the Mark Lance Armory and it’s under $1,000 for the whole building.  You get to set up the day before from 8am-4pm and 8 hours on the day of the wedding.  They are super great and easy to work with!

The building has quite a challenge though.  It was built in the 50’s and it still looks that way.  We ended up deciding to rent a tent and the walls to cover the ugliness which stacked on an additional $3000, but its never been done before so I am happy to be the trend setter, lol.

If you need an amazing florist, Bill Wilson of Wilson’s Ltd. is the real deal!  He’s super funny and has a great team!  The photos on his website do not do his work justice!  And if you are in need of an amazing florist Matt Whytsell is fantastic!  He isn’t my photographer simply because he is in the wedding.  http://www.mattwhytsell.com

If you need a great catering company, use Hatcher Catering.  They are out of Starke, Florida and their food is delicious!  They are catering my event and have catered events for me before!  904-964-8061
