The Wedding Authority

Saint Augustine, FL


We are a comprehensive special events consulting company located in historic St. Augustine, Florida, specializing in weddings design. We work for you, not for a specific venue. This allows us to bring YOUR vision to life.  Our founder has more than 30 years of wedding planning and coordinating services experience.

  • Wedding Coordinating

Our team of wedding professionals combines creativity and style with precise planning, a cool head, and the experience necessary for the creation of wonderful memories for you and all to enjoy. We have experience in arranging both traditional and contemporary weddings - sometimes even wild and wacky. Don’t be afraid to ask.

A successful wedding or wedding and reception is just like a successful business - it starts with a plan. You are the CEO with the vision and it's up to all of your team to complete the job while keeping you within your budget. This is where we come in!

Your friends, family, and bridal party are an integral part of any wedding with the endless pre-wedding tasks. Being on hand to comfort, console, and multi-task AND being party-hearty at all bridal events along with stuffing envelopes is about all most can manage gracefully. In addition to all of these tasks - the details, endless phone calls, and appointments are more than most can work into an already busy schedule. You don’t want to let the most important day of your life be sandwiched in between someone else's agenda. That is why you hire a professional Wedding Planner and Coordinator.

We offer wedding services that range from a simple phone call to arrange an officiate to perform your ceremony to assist you with every detail needed on your day. We have spent years pulling together information that you need in order to have the best our beautiful city of St. Augustine has to offer. Don’t be fooled by the fact you are only going to have a “small party” or just something simple. It takes as much planning for a small wedding as a large affair - you just have to order more and think bigger.

Please take a few minutes to review our packages and pricing. Let us answer any questions about us or how we can work for you. We are sure you will find that having our professional team on your side will mean that your day is full of nothing but beautiful memories. There are hundreds of details that must be taken care of before you walk down that aisle. The Wedding Authority offers a variety of services to fit your every wedding need.

Quality of Service
My wedding day just wouldn't have been the same without the help of everyone at The Wedding Authority, from Bill to Carla, to Ashley, and especially Dawn! They are all super prompt at responding to emails. They made us feel like we were their priority the entire time we were planning. Dawn made our wedding day flow so smooth and easy for us. I would 100% recommend The Wedding Authority team to help plan your wedding! (Total cost was for Lightner Museum courtyard, city permit, and day of event coordinator ($2,385)...worth every penny!)
