St. James Hotel

Romance and commitment. Tears and joy. We handle all the details.

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 option for the best day of their lives.
We’re an official Historic Minnesota Wedding venue, and offer five unique and charming settings 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, newly remodeled Summit banquet room offers panoramic river views and seating for up to 240.

    The night was perfect

    The St. James Hotel provided an exceptional reception location for our wedding. Many thanks to Marissa and the entire team. We still hear comments about the delicious food as well! Couldn’t have asked for more!

    Very professional

    We were very pleased with the professionalism of the staff and quality of the venue. Marissa and all the staff that assisted us were fabulous. I feel like they went above and beyond to make sure our Wedding was all we hoped and planned for. Thank you for all the work you did to make our wedding day memorable.

    Our wedding was absolutely perfect.

    Marissa was so helpful. The food and staff were amazing. The guests loved the hotel. My husband and I were so happy how the day turned out. We highly recommend any engaged couples to check out the hotel for their wedding.

    Dream come TRUE!

    It is impossible to put into words how amazing it was to work with Marissa and the St. James Hotel for our wedding. To say everything was perfect is an understatement. It was beyond perfect! We are stationed overseas so planning was going to be a challenge but Marissa made it feel easy! She was very responsive, very helpful, sent pictures when we were unable to come in and see things ourselves and went above and beyond for absolutely everything. I swear I changed my mind on things 100 times and she was always very accommodating and very calm when I would panic. She had amazing suggestions when I wasn’t sure what to do and when the day arrived – her suggestions were spot on and even better than we ever imagined!! The hotel itself is the most beautiful place and you throw in an amazing Wedding Manager and you have a stress free, beautiful event! Our food was outstanding and all of the help from the staff that weekend was beyond amazing! We are still hearing from guests about how amazing the food was. Everyone who worked at that hotel was SO nice! Even if they just saw you in the hall they asked if you needed anything. We had both our ceremony and reception at the St. James Hotel and it worked out great! Marissa was there from beginning to end that weekend and really put our minds at ease so we could enjoy our wedding. Please, do yourselves a favor and book this hotel and work with Marissa. The hotel, Marissa and the staff will make your wedding day dreams come true!!

    Beautiful setting

    My (now) husband and I spent a romantic wintry weekend at the St. James a few years ago. When we got engaged we wanted to capture that same romantic/warm/cozy/mini-getaway atmosphere for our wedding.
    The hotel as a setting is beautiful, the prices are reasonable (esp. when you get a discounted rate for a winter wedding), and Marissa – the St Jame’s wedding coordinator – is unbeatable to work with. She was responsive without being overbearing throughout the entire planning process, and day-of she was invaluable to the flow of events. She even whipped together a grooms dinner with less than two-weeks notice. 
    Our day looked like this: 150 guests (98% of our rsvp’s responded yes!), ceremony in Christ Episcopal Church a few blocks away, cocktail hour with a live band in the historic lobby and dinner and dancing in the Summit Room. We wanted a wintry romantic getaway where everyone escaped for the weekend, and that’s exactly what we go.

    We had an amazing experience at the St. James Hotel for our wedding. All of the staff helped coordinate everything from the chair ties to the DJ. We could not have asked for a more friendly low stress experience! They are very professional and accurate. We, along with our guests, thoroughly enjoyed the entire weekend and would recommend it to anyone.
