A Lifetime of Memories

Historic & elegant twin cities wedding & reception venue.




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.

To sample the St. James wedding experience, contact our planners for details on all of our venues and options.

Perfection is in the details

Details are our specialty. When you book your wedding with the St. James, we’ll coordinate everything you need — all under one roof.


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).

Married Couple Kissing at the St. James Hotel

Erika was a special bride. Each detail of her day held great significance. She had the most private of prep moments with her closest friends and family, sipping mimosas and sharing their favorite stories, surrounded in pure happiness. She seated guests at tables carefully decorated with the most unique place settings to ever grace St. James Hotel. She had the perfect dress, the most incredible well-selected shade of the deepest of red lipsticks and not an ounce of the effort was wasted as Nick simply stared in awe at her…all day long. 

Weddings are such a moving day, but they kept the heartbeat of the celebration love, family and thoughtfulness.
