The St. James is a beautiful venue and the staff is amazing. We also had multiple guests tell us it was the best wedding food they'd ever had. Thank you to Abby and her team for making our day absolutely perfect.

We had our wedding at the St. James in September 2018. Abby was a great help and made wedding planning very easy and streamlined. The food was phenomenal (Minnesota Pot Roast, pasta primavera, & Tuscan Chicken) and the Summit Room setting offered our guests a fine view of the Mississippi River. Highly recommended!

We had an amazing experience at the St James for our December wedding! I have nothing but positive things to say. We used the Historic Lobby for our cocktail hour and the Summit Room for our reception and both spaces were gorgeous. The staff were all friendly and accommodating, and the wedding coordinator, Abby, was great to work with. The price was so reasonable, and it was a great weekend getaway for our guests. We stayed at the hotel, got ready at the salon downstairs, and got our flowers from the floral shop in the hotel - all in one place, it couldn’t have been easier or more perfect! So grateful to the St James for making our wedding day an absolute dream!

We loved having our wedding at the St. James Hotel in Red Wing, MN. I am originally from the area, so I love the Mississippi River, and my husband loves history. This place offered us the best of both worlds with the beautiful views of the river and bluffs, and there was so much historical background within the venue from the woodwork, ceiling, and decor. Abby, the wedding coordinator, made sure everything was perfect and kept me on track with my planning to make sure things were turned in on time, etc. She answered any question I had ASAP and was always there to lend her advice on what worked best with the venue and timelines. The comp suite you are given the night of the wedding is beyond beautiful, and you are given an extremely generous gift from the hotel that you can use forever. Every aspect of the day was perfect, and our guest continue to talk about how beautiful and perfect the venue was. Only downfall was the front desk clerk was a little rude to a couple of our guests, which kind of left a sour taste in our mouths upon leaving the hotel. So that was a bummer. However, we 10/10 would recommend this venue if you are looking for something with views, history, and greatness! P.S. We had our ceremony and reception in the Summit Room, and we also did a social hour between the ceremony and dinner in the Historic Area bar.

I looked and spoke to about 50 wedding venues and was getting so frustrated that I couldn't find something that we loved, wasn't a ton of work and in our price range. We wanted everything in one place with an outdoors ceremony and indoor reception. When I first got info on the St. James, I thought it was too good to be true. It met all of our criteria (we did out ceremony in the park behind the St. James) and was in our price range. I figured there had to be a catch but there wasn't! It was seriously PERFECT! They were incredible to work with throughout the process. They responded promptly to our many questions and helped us every step of the way. The work we had to do for set up and tear down was minimal and they provided pretty much all of the basics that many other DIY venues lacked like china, linens, tables, easels, etc. Instead of being a generic hotel ballroom though, this hotel has so much character! As soon as I walked in and saw the view of the river from the Summit Room, I knew we had to get married there. We loved that everything was under one roof- getting ready, our florist (Clementine is the best!), the hotel for the guests and our complimentary honeymoon suite. It made logistics so much easier! The staff was all so helpful and attentive. They really went out of their way and wowed us with little surprises along the way. Our families and guests were so impressed! The food was absolutely incredible! We did tacos and had mac and cheese bites for late night snacks- sooooo good! The only problem we ran into was that we ran out of hotel rooms in our block, the St. James and every hotel in all of Red Wing for our date (Sept 16). If you are getting married in the fall, book LOTS of rooms way ahead of time to ensure all of your guests have accommodations. The St. James is a small boutique hotel that has a lot of charm and fills up fast. We couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else. Definitely go with the St. James! You won't regret it :)
