The Ribault Club can share a bit of history with the guests of your distinctive wedding, corporate occasion or special celebration. Located on Fort George Island, in Jacksonville, Florida, it boasts water front property and breathtaking views. Recently restored to its original grandeur, the 16,000-square-foot venue reflects the vision of its designer, renowned Swiss architect Maurice Fatio, as an elegant gathering place amidst fluted pilasters, arched doorways, wainscoting, paneled doors and custom woodwork. It’s scenic waterfront location echoes the style and elegance of the affluent guests who first came to the resort in 1928 and is still the perfect setting today.
Now part of Fort George Island Cultural State Park, and the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, Ribault Club exceptionally blends historic architecture and Florida’s natural coastal ambiance with 21st century modern conveniences, providing a memorable indoor or outdoor setting for any occasion. Giant oak trees frame the entrance to the clubhouse and blanket the grounds in an interplay of sun and shade. The grounds provide multiple ceremony site locations. Whether celebrating a marriage, corporate achievement, or personal milestone, holding an event in an unforgettable setting like Ribault Club creates a sophisticated and stylish celebration.

The Ribault Club was the perfect venue for our modern garden wedding this past April 2022. From the beautiful natural lush foliage and tall palm trees to the historical club house on the water, we couldn't have asked for a better venue to host our ceremony, cocktail hour, traditional Chinese tea ceremony & lion dance performance and reception. Our guests still comment to this day on how stunning the big oak tree was for our ceremony! The venue coordinator at Ribault. Marie, was also key to helping us and our planner ensure that our special day went as smoothly as possible, and was communicative throughout the planning process. I would recommend the Ribault to any couple looking for a beautiful, natural outdoor venue!
“Our wedding day was perfect. We wanted as much of our wedding to be outside as possible and we had the perfect weather to do it! Our guests loved being outside, and getting to walk down to the water. Marie was so incredible to work with and so flexible throughout the entire planning process! The Ribault team was even more helpful on the day-of than we expected. We knew we wanted to get married at the Ribault Club, and didn’t even look at other venues! I am so, so glad we did. We would do it all over again!”
From when I first stumbled across photos of The Ribault Club, I knew this was where I wanted to have our wedding. Guests could not stop raving about how perfect and how unique of a setting it is! The areas for getting ready were perfect for my bridal party, and the groomsmen even had their own space with a bar to get ready in. Marie was great in assisting my husband and I with all of our logistics and was there throughout our wedding day to ensure everything was how it needed to be! My husband and I cannot recommend The Ribault Club enough!
Our guests were blown away by this venue - we decided to do most of our event outdoors, and Marie (manager) was so accommodating to setup the tables inside and outside just as we asked. Tables and chairs, beautiful wooden bar, bridal rooms and groomsman rooms are provided and perfect for what we needed. So many beautiful spots for pictures around the property! And the building looks gorgeous day and night. I can’t say enough about how great Marie was to work with - she has a wonderful personality. She let us bring our decor up a day or two early which was a huge help.
My husband and I fell in love with the Ribault Club's historic Old Florida charm the moment we checked it out. From the old oaks draped in Spanish moss to the palms and the SPACE that this beautiful venue offers, we were never disappointed. The staff at the Ribault Club was just as amazing as the property itself and were easily one of the best vendors to work with. Marie, Madi, and Haley did an outstanding job of communicating, helping, and truly going above and beyond to make our day absolutely wonderful. Our guests are still commenting on what a magical night we had and how absolutely breathtaking our ceremony and reception were (both out back).
