Our wedding was AND our wedding photos are amazing thanks to the St. James!

Imagine having little to do in your venue because the foundation of your site is already world class - that is exactly what it was like getting married in the Summit Room! My stress as a bride melted away whenever I spoke with the events team at the St. James. When our grooms dinner arrived, we walked through the hotel and noticed all the signage already beautifully and perfectly placed throughout the hotel and felt such relief in knowing our guest would be treated by this hotel staff with as much love as my husband and I already felt for them. Then, and I cannot emphasize this enough, my breath was truly taken as my Dad walked me down the aisle to a stunning view of the sunset over the Mississippi. All eyes were on me, but I was taking in the full view as much as possible. We received countless compliments on the delicious food, friendly staff, and of course, the beauty of the entire hotel (not just our wedding)! When my husband and I started searching for our venue after we got engaged, I wanted a fall wedding set in a space with small town charm and 5 star treatment. Honestly, my wildest dreams were exceeded. We will forever cherish the memories of our wedding day at the St. James hotel!

Beautiful wedding venue!

Abby and the St. James Hotel staff made our day extra special. The staff was attentive, quick to respond to our questions, and overall just friendly to all of our family and friends. The hotel's historic area was the perfect location for our micro wedding. Best weekend!
