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!

GarageTown LLC 


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

Ahavah Cottage is a wedding venue in Elysian, Minnesota. Located just an hour away from Minneapolis, this setting is ideal for couples seeking a tranquil, down-to-earth place to exchange their vows. 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!
