Our new wedding & events facility is a heated & cooled vintage, European-style carriage house to match our existing civil war era (1858!) brick house. The Carriage House can accommodate 150 guests in the warm months and 100 in the winter. The space flows into the gardens and expansive patio area for additional seating. Now booking for year-round events! We do still have room for a 2024 wedding! Now booking 2025.

What a treasure! I recently delivered and set up florals I created for a wedding. I had never been to the nursery/venue before, and I must say my curiosity was peaked. Wow…this was more magical than I could have imagined! Not only is the property historical, the charms of the buildings and patios were like walking through an English garden. Upon going inside, I was again, enamored with the vibe of this venue! It had a modern rustic charm to it- bright white walls, warm wood features & an antique garden gazebo, among other unique features. It was enchanting to say the least! It is perfect for an intimate event. It has plenty of space for many guest tables, features tables (food, photo) and photo opportunities. The natural light through the windows that look out onto the patio gardens provide a perfect blend of letting the beauty of nature in. The staff was very friendly, helpful & hospitable. I met several of the staff that day and you could tell they loved what they do out at Marketplatz. I am very much looking forward to my next event there.

To learn more, fill out this form:

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.

NCW is a beautiful location. We were comforted knowing that our outdoor ceremony would have a space to move into if the weather turned (luckily, we had sunshine!). Jackie and Jeff made it so easy to plan the day and the details. The space is so beautiful, we hardly added decoration. Highly recommend NCW!

My experience working with the owners and the venue managers at the 3 Ten was phenomenal from start to finish. Communication is always very quick and they made the process so easy with how organized they are. The add-ons they offer (cafe lighting, swag lights behind the head table, and the gorgeous floor to ceiling sheer curtains) are so convenient. Day of, the venue staff, bartenders, and security staff were a breeze to work with. As a planner, with years of experience in the wedding industry, it was evident to me that every couple is treated like their top priority. I would highly recommend the 3 Ten to any couple!

Waterville, MN
  • Up to 200 guests

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

Awarded Best of Zola
This place is a showstopper!! There’s a rustic retro charm to the place partnered with a beautiful green yard, plants, and trees. Brady was so professional and prompt with responding to our inquiries and was more than happy to tell us the story of how the place came to be- so cool! He and his wife Jennifer really know how to decorate and bring this venue to life. Your guests will be talking about this wedding venue for years to come. From antique cars, handmade pergola, nature-filled pond, rustic bar, clematis flower arches, to lush trees/grass you’ll have the perfect unique setting with countless photo opportunities for you and your guests. And if you think it looks good in the daylight, you should see it lit up at night - breathtaking. I highly recommend this venue to anybody looking to make lasting memories at a gorgeous location.

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!
