Government House Weddings
This historic site has served the city of St. Augustine since 1598. This site served as the administrative headquarters and residences for colonial governors appointed by Spain, then Britain and then Spain again. In 1821 when Spain ceded Florida to the U.S. the current Government House was used as a courthouse and briefly as the Capitol building of the new Territory of Florida.
Parts of the current building's coquina walls and windows are believed to date back to St. Augustine's first Spanish colonial period. This historic site and building offers an ideal ambiance as a wedding venue. The Government House boasts a beautiful courtyard that faces the Plaza de la Constitución in the center of historic downtown. There is also a unique event space called the Sala de Montiano room inside the Government House; combined with the courtyard, the venue can accommodate up to 120 people.
The Government House also features a newly updated lobby where exhibits can be held. Most recently, the University of Florida presented "First Colony: Our Spanish Origins" here, an exhibit which traced St. Augustine's past. Visitors can learn everything they need to know about St. Augustine from the Government House and can even host their wedding at this stunning and historic wedding venue.
