Ximenez-Fatio House

Favorite feature of the venue?
The location and history of the Ximenez-Fatio House are my two favorite features! This historic home is located on one of the oldest streets in America, right in the heart of downtown St. Augustine. Despite its unique location in the historic district, it is very private and quiet, which is perfect for outdoor garden weddings. The home itself dates back to 1798, which is almost 50 years before Florida was even a part of the United States! It has a really beautiful history of being owned and operated by women, during a time when that was really unheard of.

What are your couples’ favorite features of the venue?

The beautiful outdoor gardens are a big draw for couples to the Ximenez-Fatio House. It’s rare to have an outdoor area large enough for weddings in the heart of a historic area. The beautiful historic home provides a really lovely backdrop for weddings. 

Tell us a little about the venue? Is there a history or a cool story couples love to hear?
The Ximenez-Fatio House was built as a family home and place of business for Spanish colonists in 1798. Starting in 1826, the home was owned by a series of enterprising women who transformed the home into a boarding house. In 1939, the home was purchased and restored by the National Society of Colonial Dames of America, and became a museum that brings the past back to life for visitors to St. Augustine. 

What are the venue spaces? 
The main space used for weddings and events is the Event Lawn and Garden. The beautiful home serves as the backdrop for weddings and receptions on the lawn for up to 100 guests. There is also an indoor private dining room that can be used for cocktail hour or small indoor dinners for up to 40 guests. 

What’s included in your packages?
We have two different package options for couples interested in hosting both their wedding ceremony and reception at the Ximenez-Fatio House: the Custom Package and the Intimate Wedding Package. The custom package allows couples to customize all of their vendors and wedding details, while the Intimate package includes many vendors and additional amenities. We also just released an outdoor wedding ceremony package. We’re excited to share more about that soon!

Are there any photo restrictions at the venue?
There are certain areas inside the historic home that have restrictions to maintain the historic integrity of the building.

Do you have a Getting Ready room?
There is a historic home adjacent to the Ximenez-Fatio House called the Sarah Petty Anderson House. Couples hosting weddings have access to the entire first floor of the home for final preparations before the wedding. There is also a separate staging area for groomsmen.

How much can couples expect to pay on average at your venue?

The Custom Package is $5,500 for venue buyout, amenities, and staffing. The Intimate Wedding Package ranges from $15,500 to $21,500 and includes venue buyout, open bar, catering, day-of coordination, wedding cake, DJ, upgraded rentals and amenities, tent insurance, and staffing.
