If you are searching for a Venue that is exquisite, chic and elegant check out Garten Markeplatz Perennial Farms! We were hired by the bride and groom to provide bartending services. This venue is filled with history, floral and landscaping that is beyond beautiful during the day and the evening hours are lit up with an amber lighting that brings the whole mood together. They were so accommodating, not only to the bride and groom but to the vendors that were hired. The owners and staff were all so personable, friendly and very helpful, they definitely went above and beyond for their clients! I hope to celebrate another event there someday!

When we began looking for possible wedding venues, we came across the Outback and was the best decision we could have made. The venue location sits beautifully in the bluffs and is isolated enough that we felt like our wedding was ours and everything we needed was either provided to us by Holly or was easy to find. Our guests stayed in LaCrosse and it was easy for us to get transportation to and from the venue. One of the biggest pluses was having the apartments available to us. We were able to arrive and stay at the venue the entire weekend. Which made everything less stressful for us. Cannot recommend this venue more.

We were married at NCW back in 2017 and our friends and family still talk about how great our wedding and reception were. We toured/spoke with nearly 15 venues from Mankato to the Metro. So many required you to use all of their vendors, had strict rules about what you could and couldn't do, or required a lot of work and decor to create a beautiful space. The other venues made us feel like we'd have a cookie cutter wedding with no option to make it our own. Then we found Next Chapter! It's s a gorgeous venue, the staff are wonderful, and we were able to have the wedding and reception that we wanted.

GarageTown LLC 

5.0

Waterville, MN
  • Up to 200 guests
  • Select services
  • Indoor & outdoor

Our ol' 10 acre charm farm dates back to before MN was a state in the abstract. It's been in Brady’s family since the summer of '69 and we plan to keep it that way for generations to come. The original family that homesteaded the property came from Czechoslovakia. They built the hand-hewn log cabin on a boulder foundation and owned it for 112 years. Brady grew up in the home since '87 which has transformed over time into the gem that we have today. We kickstarted our journey at GarageTown LLC with our wedding in August, 2021. We look forward to creating more memories and sharing our historic and creative property with you! Forever Grateful, Brady & Jenni

I photographed a wedding at GarageTownLLC, and I fell in love with the place. Jennifer & Brady are the sweetest people, and their farm is magical. I loved the custom details, the mature trees, and the pond. It was a beautiful place to have a wedding. I highly recommend it!

The surrounding woodlands and rustic indoor space make for a one-of-a-kind base for any couple's fairytale vision.

My husband and I had our marriage celebration here this past December 2023 and we couldn’t have been happier with the results. We originally had plans with another venue but they went up for sale and weren’t sure if they would remain a wedding venue by our date so we decided to reached out to Ahavah Cottage and they were more than amazing! With the timeframe we had left with having to switch venues, they worked with our budget and gave us all the information and vendors we needed to make our big day happen. Communication was always fast and they answered every question we had. Day of event went so smoothly, I don’t think my husband and I stressed about a thing! Staff were lovely and helpful and the venue alone is big and beautiful! Highly recommend this venue to anyone!
