PLANNING YOUR WEDDING AT ST. JAMES The first step in planning your wedding is to call the church office and schedule the date. We will send you our wedding packet, with a reservation form to fill out. Return that with a $100 deposit to reserve the date. After the date is reserved, you will need to call or e-mail the pastor to set up pre-marital sessions. A downloadable copy of our wedding handbook is available below. That should answer any questions you might have. For more information, please call or e-mail the Church office.
