One of the biggest questions we are asked at The Treasury on the Plaza is how we host both a wedding ceremony and reception in the same venue, our stunning Grande Ballroom. It’s actually much easier than you might think! While you and your guests are enjoying cocktail hour, or exploring the beautiful city of St. Augustine, our team (and your amazing team of vendors!) are hard at work to create a miraculous wedding ceremony to reception transformation! Check out a few of our favorites below.
1. Merlita and Ross’s New Year’s Eve Wedding
Team Treasury rang in the New Year by celebrating Merlita and Ross, and soaking in all of their dramatic details! We loved their stunning ceremony draping by Mugwump Productions, accented by beautiful floral arrangements by Tula Rose Floral and Events. These floral arrangements transitioned perfectly for their wedding reception, sitting atop tables with gold sequin and red velvet linens.
2. Vonna and Jason’s Classic Wedding With Organic Details
Vonna and Jason’s wedding ceremony featured extra high pipe and drape with an intricate tree lighting projection by Mark Grandin Events. Floral arrangements by Shea Hopely Flowers made up of roses, hydrangeas, eucalyptus, and dusty miller lined the aisle. During the reception, these arrangements were repurposed on top of an elegant king’s table set for 36. Our antique “something blue” chairs served as unique seating for the bride and groom. Their elegant decor certainly made their wedding an affair to remember!
Megah and Pavan brought so much life into our Grande Ballroom. For their Treasury on the Plaza wedding ceremony, Dreams To Reality provided a breathtaking white and gold Mandap pavilion, which symbolizes growth and well-being in traditional Indian wedding ceremonies. Two magnificent white floral peacocks welcomed guests at the end of the aisle. The gold and white theme was carried through into the wedding reception. By dimming the lights, lighting hundreds of candles, and uplighting the walls with brilliant blue spotlights, the Treasury team created a dramatic change in ambiance from the elegant and traditional wedding ceremony.
4. Ariana and Justin’s Wedding Inspired by Florida’s Natural Beauty
Ariana and Justin brought the outdoors in for their wedding ceremony and reception at The Treasury on the Plaza.Destination Planning helped execute the bride and groom’s tropical vision for their big day by accenting their ceremony alter with palm leaves and orchids. The floral ceremony elements were combined with the bride’s stunning bouquet to create an elaborate centerpiece on the sweetheart table during the wedding reception. We loved all of the greenery and pops of color that they incorporated into their wedding decor!
5. Summer and Mark’s Dazzling Glam Wedding Ceremony to Reception Transformation
Summer and Mark’s wedding ceremony and reception had no shortage of romance. St. Johns Illuminations created a dramatic ceremony backdrop featuring a glittering crystal chandelier. Awash in fuschia lighting from the cove lighting in the Grande Ballroom, the room was reminiscent of a fairytale palace. For the reception, the chandelier and draping remained to create the perfect focal point above the head table. Our jaws were on the floor for this ballroom transformation!
6. Liz and Jacob’s Classic White Wedding with Showstopping Floral Wall
Liz and Jacob’s Treasury on the Plaza wedding was the epitome of modern elegance. The couple exchanged vows in front of a breathtaking floral wall created by the bride’s uncle, famed New York-based florist Raúl Àvila Inc. The stunning floral elements flawlessly transitioned into reception decor. We love how the floral wall provided the perfect backdrop for their wedding cake from Publix Bakery during the reception.
We love seeing how our Grande Ballroom can transform to match the style of each unique couple. Whether your wedding is traditional or modern, simple or dramatic, our team is here to help you make your vision for your ceremony and reception come to life. We can’t wait to see your wedding ceremony to reception transformation!
The Treasury is open and available for in-person tours, weddings, and events!
Our commitment to the health and well-being of all those who walk through our doors continues to be top of mind 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
All staff and vendors are required to wear masks during events, and during any other customer interactions, which include meetings and tours.
Before our venue opens each day we disinfect the venue with a fogger machine. The fog is used to reduce the number of airborne microorganisms while it applies disinfectant to all surfaces immediately.
We are proud to announce that we have invested in and installed the Air Scrubber by Aerus into our Air Conditioning’s Ventilation Systems. This system combines high-intensity UVC lighting with a state-of-the-art process that destroys over 99% of airborne and surface contaminants. This is the same technology that was built for NASA and is used on the International Space Station.
We also have a designated team member who oversees the continuous disinfecting of high touched areas through all events.
Watch the video below to learn more about the steps that we are taking to ensure the health and safety of all of our couples and guests!
Our promise to you is that we continue to evaluate, invest, and implement the newest technologies to ensure the safety of everyone who comes to celebrate with us.
