  • St. James 1868 was a dream come true. The ceremony space- The Abbey was absolutely breathtaking. The space is so beautiful and elegant. Although it is a big space and can hold up to 500 people, our ceremony felt very intimate as Colleen and Kate set up the space perfectly. Colleen and Kate were both amazing to work with- their communication was impeccable and they made our vision a reality. St. James 1868 was everything I dreamed about and I highly recommend it to any couple that is looking for a beautiful, elegant, romantic venue!
