413 on Wacouta is an event center located in Lowertown, Saint Paul just steps from beautiful Mears Park. The exposed wood ceiling beams along with limestone and exposed brick walls give this venue industrial character with warmth and charm. The natural beauty of the spaces do not require a lot of additional decoration. We always advise potential couples to choose a venue that speaks the feel and the mood that you are looking for, this will save a ton on decor!

FOOD/BEVERAGE

We DO NOT have a food and beverage minimum! We believe strongly in choices and lots of options, so we have 10 different caterers on our list. If you go to our website www.413onwacouta.com and click on “Vendors” you can browse the options and see there is a food style and a price point for everyone.

We offer a "BYOB" Bar service option for $10/adult for beer/wine only or $13/adult for beer/wine/spirits. See website for details! 

Or, you can choose to have your bar serviced by any of the caterers who provide liquor service or the five additional "Beverage Provider" options listed on the website. There are no minimums, so you can choose to have a Hosted Bar, Cash Bar or a mixture of the two. 

CAPACITY

The maximum for the ceremony suite is 150 seats those standing at the altar. We can seat 200 for a plated dinner in the reception room, 175 for a buffet.

We do not recommend inviting more than 150 for an onsite ceremony, 200 for the reception.

ACCOMMODATIONS

There is a 75 space parking lot available across the street that can be reserved for $300 OR guests can pay $3 for their car. There are several hotels within a few blocks. The Doubletree Hotel is connected to us through the skyway system, holds a parking garage, offers shuttle service and is only three blocks away.

Please note our proximity to the new Saints Stadium. Reserving parking during on a home game day will be more expensive. I have affordable Valet recommendations as well. 

COORDINATION & SECURITY

You have an unlimited number of hours you can access the building on Wedding Day. Every event has an Event Coordinator on site from the time someone needs access to the building (Vendors, Bridal Party) until load out is completed. Based on the wishes of the couple is when we start for the day, the fee is $35 per hour. This fee is not due until 2 weeks before your wedding when we conduct your final walk-through meeting.

NOTES:

- For 2017 and later dates this rate is $40/hour. (Estimated increase: $50 total)

- On Holidays and Holiday Weekends this rate is $10 more per hour.

(Estimated increase: $100 total)

Every event has a Security guard onsite. This person serves as a greeter who arrives 30 minutes before scheduled guest arrival and stays until load out is completed. She keeps your gifts secure, makes sure all liquor stays inside the building and directs guests to restrooms/coat racks/ceremony suite/etc. She keeps the building completely closed to the public so it is only your friends and family at the event. Her charge is $25 per hour.

NOTES:

- For 2017 and later dates this rate is $30/hour.

(Estimated increase: $35 total)

- On Holidays and Holiday Weekends this rate is $10 more per hour.

(Estimated increase: $70)

INSURANCE

Proof of insurance is due 14 days before the event through www.wedsafe.com. The total for this comes to $175. 

CREDIBILITY AND EXPERIENCE

We highly recommend looking at reviews for all the venues you are considering! It is such an important day and you'll want to feel confident you are in capable hands!

Please inquire if you would like to schedule a tour or if there are any other questions we can answer for you! Our hours are flexible and appointment based only. Evenings/Weekend appointments tend to book out 1 week in advance, but we can typically get weekday appointments in within 2-3 days.

We chose 413 Wacouta after our first visit. The space (both ceremony and reception) were beautiful, intimate and perfect for what we envisioned on our wedding day. We were not let down - Britty and her staff were top notch - responsive to questions and very professional. We appreciated the direction during rehearsal and the ability ( due to the venue not being booked the night before) to set up the night before. We had a photo booth on the main level , which was the perfect space and allowed our guests to move around some. We received nothing but compliments on the space and people loved the location. We would highly recommend 413 for your wedding.

My husband and I just got married this July and we chose to host our wedding at the 413 after looking at tons of other venues. The space is so incredibly warm and intimate, and is centrally located in downtown St. Paul, so most of our guests could easily walk from their hotel to our wedding. Britty was AMAZING to work with! She was not only extremely responsive and helpful during the entire planning process, but on the day of our wedding, she took charge and I felt like I didn't have to worry about anything. Toni was also fabulous on the day of our wedding! She took the lead after Britty went home for the night. Overall, if you are a looking for an extremely intimate and beautiful venue with an owner/manager that is helpful, organized, and personable... then the 413 is exactly what you are looking for! Having our wedding there was the BEST decision we made.

Where do I begin... from the moment we stepped into 413 on Wacouta we could tell it was special. The entryway and vintage brownstone style was stunning. The ceremony space was perfectly intimate, charming, and upscale. The bridal suite was chic and the space for the groomsmen was huge. Once we took the elevator down to the reception space we knew it was our favorite. The exposed limestone walls, wood and steel beams, custom up-lighting, chandeliers, it all added up to the cozy, intimate, unique, formal and historical wedding we imagined. Beyond the stunning space, Britty and her staff were amazing to work with. Throughout the planning process, Britty was responsive as super helpful in answering my questions. During the rehearsal and the day of our wedding we felt taken care of. I don't think I lifted a finger on my wedding day which was important with my high anxiety personality. You cannot go wrong booking 413 on Wacouta for you wedding. You will not regret it and like us, you will experience the best day of your lives. We wish we could move in to 413 on Wacouta because it is our new happy place :)

Britty and her staff are amazing. Every question we had, she answered in detail and made us feel like everything was taken care of for our big day and then some. She really goes above and beyond to make sure things go smoothly and help couples get more time to focus on what is important during their wedding day - all the love! We can't thank Britty and 413 enough for everything they did. We feel so grateful and fortunate that we picked 413.

Britty and her staff made our September 3rd, 2016 wedding day amazing. Everything went according to plan and we credit that to the 413 on Wacouta staff. The first time we toured the facility we knew this was where we wanted to have our Wedding reception. Besides deciding to get married, booking 413 on Wacouta was one of the best decisions we made :) Britty is an expert at what she does. She is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to Wedding planning and she responds to emails within 24 hours (usually it is within the hour). We had Green Mill Catering, Glam Doll Donuts, Muddy Paws Cheesecake, and Sweet Pea Floral as vendors which were all recommended by Britty. All of the vendors are use to doing weddings at 413 on Wacouta so it made coordination very simple. I could tell all of these vendors loved doing weddings at 413 and I would guess it is due to Britty and her staff. Thank you 413 on Wacouta for all your help and making our Wedding day perfect! -Lauren and Chad

Britty was amazing to work with! Throughout the whole process she was always there - she went above and beyond to help us organize our day! We were living in Rochester while planning and she worked with us and our schedules to make sure we were able to get in and see the venue. She was very responsive to our emails and was very organized and efficient. On our wedding day, Britty worked magic at getting things done. She was unobtrusive and unnoticeable, but left nothing undone. We received so many compliments from our guests about the beautiful venue (ceremony and reception space) and how smoothly everything ran. The rest of her staff worked just as hard to make sure that we had an amazing experience! I truly had nothing to worry about on my wedding day thanks to Britty and her amazing team!

413 on Wacouta Event Center was a dream-come-true wedding reception site. Britty, owner of 413 and the wedding coordinator, is outstanding!

413 on Wacouta was the first and only wedding venue we toured - after seeing the beautiful facility and meeting Britty, we immediately knew we'd get married there. The venue itself has the classic 'St. Paul' feel and is absolutely gorgeous inside and out. We had about 80 people at our wedding/ reception and the venue provided a very cozy and fun atmosphere. Working with Britty was amazing- she has so much advice about weddings which made planning a breeze. She was also incredibly responsive to the numerous questions we had. Having people like Britty and Toni who have worked around weddings for what seems like a century, provided so much peace of mind that it was impossible to not enjoy every second of our special the day. We look back to our May 2016 wedding with so many good memories and happiness. Thank you Britty and Toni!
