    So Amazing! The best wedding venue you'll find.

    We had a wedding over the weekend at the St James and it was spectacular! Leading up to the event, the St James staff was so helpful and quick to respond to our questions. The day went off without any issues and many of our guests came up and told us it was the best wedding they've ever been to, and many said it was the best wedding food they've ever had. We also had the River Blu SPA inside the hotel do hair and make up and that was just so convenient. They also did such a beautiful job. I would highly recommend them. I can't thank you enough for exceeding all of our expectations. We wanted to give our daughter her dream wedding and we wanted our guests to feel welcomed, well fed and entertained. It was all that and more!
