Romance and commitment. Tears and joy. We handle all the details of your Red Wing wedding.

We blend the wedding magic of tradition and today, family and friends, old and new – and something borrowed, something blue – to celebrate couples beginning the story of their lives together. The perfect wedding always takes one’s breath away, and we’re happy to report our brides consistently – and breathlessly – tell us we were the best wedding venue for the best day of their lives.

We’re an official Historic Minnesota Wedding venue and offer five unique and charming settings for your Red Wing wedding with a full complement of services to cover every detail, regardless of wedding size.

Our Victorian dining room with its pipe organ and intricate Grand Staircase is the perfect fit for smaller, intimate celebrations. And our stunning Summit banquet room offers panoramic river views and seating for up to 240.

To sample the St. James wedding experience, contact our planners for details on all of our venues and options. We're happy to handle your special day for you! Meet with us and get to know the special charm of the St. James Hotel.


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).
