My husband and I were married at the St. James on November 4th and had a great experience. We utilized the whole hotel for the weekend including the historic dining room, bridal/groom suites and the ceremony/reception in the Summit room. We worked with the Wedding Sales Manager during the planning process and they were always accessible for questions and wasn't shy about sharing their opinion (which I found very helpful). The staff were great to work with on our wedding weekend and were always accessible. Our guests loved the Summit room and the food! I recommend using their preferred vendors list to ensure your day is smooth. They also really like you to follow their rules so make sure your group can behave! Overall great experience and cant wait to come back!

We did a micro-wedding at the St. James in March 2023. It was absolutely perfect and the wedding sales manager, did an amazing job guiding us through the process. The ceremony, dinner, and reception were beautiful and the staff was attentive and helpful.

The St. James Hotel is what made our wedding stand out! We utilized three areas of the hotel and our guests loved it! We used the Laurentine Room for our ceremony, the Historic Area for our cocktail hour and the Summit Room for our reception. Our guests had so much fun seeing the hotel and those that spent the night truly enjoyed their rooms. Our guest also mentioned how our food was the best wedding food they have ever had! (it was very, very good!) We were so happy to work with the Wedding Sales Manager during our wedding planning. Seriously the best! They know their stuff and does everything they can to help make your day exactly what you want (also a great tie breaker when you are both stubborn, or has a great new idea to add). They were professional but also fun and got back to us in a timely manner. The other staff at the hotel were just as amazing! We got married during the blizzard on December 22nd 2022 and the staff at the St James Hotel STAYED the night to make sure they could be there for our wedding. This meant so much to us and I think that alone should show you how committed they are to making sure you have the best wedding day! Book with the St James we promise you will not regret it. While you are there utilize River Blu Salon for your hair and make up needs and Clementine Flowers for your floral needs. It was fantastic having both on site! We loved our wedding day even if it was a blizzard!

Short Story:

The small staircase to the left of the lobby’s Grand Staircase was originally designed for unescorted ladies,” the term of the day for women who were attending the wedding without the company of a man.
