Top 6 Reasons St. Augustine is the Best Destination Wedding Location

St. Augustine has been gaining international recognition as a travel destination for years, and now we are making our name as one of the best destination wedding locations in Florida. If you are considering a destination wedding, look no further! We’re sharing our top 6 reasons why you should host your destination wedding in St. Augustine, Florida!


Pristine Beaches


Who doesn’t want a beach vacation? TripAdvisor has rated St. Augustine Beach as one of its Top 25 Beaches in the U.S., and it’s easy to see why. Thanks to our mild winters, you and your guests can go waterside all year round! The beaches also provide picturesque photo opportunities for your engagement photographs or on your wedding day. With St. Augustine’s Anastasia State Park just minutes from Historic Downtown St. Augustine, there won’t be any crowds to fight for camera space.




Rich Floridian and American  History


Did you know that St. Augustine was founded forty-two years before the English colony at Jamestown, Virginia? The Nation’s Oldest City has no shortage of historic architecture, museums, and local legends. The Castillo de San Marcos and the Old City Gates date back to the time when the Spanish ruled over St. Augustine. Railroad tycoon Henry Flagler made a huge impact on the city in the 1800’s, constructing several decadent hotels, including the Flagler Hotel (now Flagler College), the Alcazar Hotel (now the Lightner Museum), and the Casa Monica. Not only do these attractions provide fun and entertaining activities for guests, but the also make stunning backdrops for wedding photos.

Charming Downtown Streets


Taking a romantic stroll down St. Augustine’s Aviles Street will have you feeling as though you’ve wandered over to northern Spain for the afternoon! Hop on one of St. Augustine’s trolleys and get an overview of the entire city in less than 2 hours. Trolley services are available for the wedding day, too! If you prefer to go solo rather than taking a trolley tour, it’s easy to walk on foot to one of the many local restaurants, shops, museums or monuments.


Luxurious and Romantic Accommodations


If you or your guests are looking for a luxury boutique hotel or a charming bed and breakfast, St. Augustine has got you covered! There are over 30 bed and breakfasts in Historic Downtown alone. Most of these hotels and B&Bs are within walking distance to the best downtown attractions, including wedding venues, restaurants, and museums. That means your guests don’t have to worry about finding transportation if they plan to partake in that open bar at your wedding!

Unique Special Events


Just because St. Augustine is a quaint, small town, doesn’t mean that we can’t host spectacular special events like any big city. Our annual attraction, Nights of Lights, brings millions into the city every holiday season! Each winter, the City of St. Augustine is transformed with twinkle lights on every building, palm tree, light post, and bridge, and sets our holiday spirit on fire. With the Summer Concert Series at our outdoor amphitheater, and Francis Field always full with new festivals, each season in St. Augustine brings a new element of exploration to the table!



Breathtaking Destination Wedding Venues


There is no shortage of beautiful locations in St. Augustine to host your destination wedding. The Treasury on the Plaza, a converted historic bank located in the heart of downtown, has seen tremendous growth in the number of couples stepping away from the “cookie-cutter” wedding in their hometowns. Couples like Kristen and JC, who recently hosted their destination wedding in St. Augustine at The Treasury on the Plaza, want their celebration to feel more like a festive weekend getaway, rather than just a single day celebration.

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.

The Treasury is following customized guidelines created by Automated Clinical Guidelines to sanitize high-traffic areas every 45 minutes during events.

Sanitizing stations have been installed throughout the building.
