Weddings Don’t Have To Be Big To Be Unforgettable

The word wedding often stirs up images of elaborate ceremonies with all the trimmings and a large gathering of family and friends. However, lately, there’s another style of wedding that’s become popular amidst the recent pandemic. Smaller, intimate gatherings have become the norm for many couples who want to tie the knot. Elopement has also been a choice for many people who are ready to say “I do,” and charming boutique hotels like the St. James in New Orleans make it possible to create lasting memories with exclusive wedding packages.

Due to COVID-19, the current guidelines and restrictions limit the number of guests allowed at social events, temporarily making large weddings a thing of the not-so-distant past. However, these mandates aren’t stopping couples from tying the knot, and brides and grooms still want to create unforgettable moments on their big day. 

Already a popular location for destination weddings, honeymoons, and anniversary celebrations, the St. James Hotel has been making couples' dreams come true for years with elegant accommodations and an incredible location next to the stunning Board of Trade.
