Wedding Events & Destination Weekends

The St. James has a variety of lovely private rooms and settings for your rehearsal dinner, sendoff breakfast, brunch or any other special gatherings. Give your guests the convenience of multiple events at a single location -- yet it never feels like the same place twice.

Bachelor & Bachelorette Getaways

Celebrate other traditions with your closest friends at the St. James before walking down the aisle! St. James getaways range from area adventures such as hiking, biking, rock climbing, golfing and boating to onsite activities like spa packages, ArtReach painting, Pinterest craft classes, wine tasting, and shopping. Enjoy a flight of bourbon at the Port Bar after a day on the water, or sip deliciously crafted cocktails on Scarlet Kitchen & Bar patio overlooking the Mississippi River after relaxing at the spa.
