Treasury on the Plaza: Grand style, historic charm, focus on safety


The Treasury On The Plaza has long been a beloved venue of St. Augustine residents and out-of-state residents alike.

With a grande ballroom spectacular enough to wow even the most seasoned wedding goers and a fully stocked bar inside of their original 1928 bank vault, The Treasury has hosted many happy couples throughout the years.

These days, wedding planning can be a little more complicated than usual. On a good day, excited couples’ biggest concern may have been which in-laws not to sit next to one another, but now their worries stray to guest safety amidst a global pandemic that has plagued the world for nearly a year.

Brandy Boulette, director of operations for The Treasury On The Plaza, assures prospective clients that they have taken every step necessary to ensure events can still be held at the venue.

“The health and safety of not only our clients, but our staff and vendors too, is of utmost importance to us,” said Boulette. “It is our first priority.”

One of the many steps The Treasury has taken is the installation of a state-of-the-art ventilation system, called an Air Scrubber, that destroys over 99% of surface and airborne contaminants.

“It was a big step for us because it was a big investment, but it was a great one because we are constantly having our air purified,” she said.

In addition to the Air Scrubbers, staff at The Treasury have stepped up cleaning and sanitation efforts throughout the venue.

Every 45 minutes during an event staff members disinfect high-contact areas, such as bathrooms and food stations, to help ensure guest safety. Hand-sanitation centers have been placed at every doorway within the venue to give guests an easy opportunity to keep their hands clean. Food and drink options are now individually wrapped, as opposed to being served buffet style, as yet another safety measure.

The venue is also fogged every morning before opening with a mixture that provides intense disinfectant, but is also safe for usage in places such as schools, daycare centers, and other spaces frequented by crowds of people.

“Our ultimate goal is operating safely,” said Boulette, “but also still creating the dreams and visions that couples have always dreamt of.”

The Treasury only hosts one event per day. When clients book an event package they receive access to all of the beautiful rooms within the venue such as The Grande Ballroom, The Vault Bar, The Grande Foyer, The Exchange Gallery, and more.
