The holidays are such a magical, romantic time of year in St. Augustine. Every year, the city is adorned with over two million twinkling white lights for the annual Nights Of Lights celebration. The lights represent the single white candles that were traditionally left burning in a window of each home during the 200-plus years that St. Augustine served as the capital of Spanish La Florida. This beloved tradition has been named one of The Top 10 Places to See Holiday Lights by National Geographic.

Weddings During Nights Of Lights
When hosting a wedding at The Treasury on The Plaza during Nights of Lights, there are many opportunities to take advantage of the season’s festivities. The dreamy lights in Plaza de la Constitucion (just steps away from The Treasury’s front door) create a dazzling backdrop for wedding portraits after the sun goes down. Carriage rides amidst the magical glow of the historic district make the perfect exit from your wedding reception. Looking for something fun and festive to do with your bridal party after your rehearsal dinner? Old Town Trolley’s famous Nights of Lights Tour promises caroling, complimentary hot cider, and homemade cookies!
Whether you are hosting a wedding or just looking for a little holiday magic, Nights of Lights is a can’t miss event. The celebration runs from the Saturday before Thanksgiving through the last week of January. We hope that you have the opportunity to come and enjoy the beauty of the nation’s oldest city during this special time of year!
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.
