When my partner and I began our search for the perfect Saint Paul wedding venue, we didn't expect to go with 413 on Wacouta at first. After emailing owner/operator Britty a few times, it was clear that this gal is on top of things! We finally met with her and toured the space and absolutely fell in LOVE with the venue! On top of the beautiful building, inside and out, Britty made our experience so easy and stress free. She was available to answer questions, show the venue off to our visiting families, and she has the biggest list of caterers that we had yet seen. We also had an incredible live band play our reception and she made accommodations to work everything out with them as well. We wanted the perfect downtown Saint Paul venue; cozy and warm (winter wedding), the exposed brick, limestone, and beams were so beautiful and simple. We also had a lot of out-of-town guests who really enjoyed the convenience of the skyway system to connect our hotel to the venue. Once you see the space, you will fall in love, and once you work with Britty you won't even look anywhere else!Sent on 04/04/2016

Beautiful - industrial meets cozy
We loved this venue! We looked long and hard for a venue that had the industrial vibes but also felt very cozy and this space was the perfect fit. Britty works very hard to make sure your special day is perfect and for the day of takes over all vendor contact so you can have the best day ever. Our favorite part was the reception space with the limestone walls. Our guests loved the space. We really wanted to have an open bar and were able to afford this with 413's BYOB bar option. You get to take really cool pictures on the rooftop, and there are a ton other spots for great photos. OH also, you can rent a nearby lot to make parking for your guests super easy! Overall it is an amazing fun space that you can add a ton of your own flair to if you want! You'll love working with Britty, and have a flawless wedding day!Sent on 03/17/2019

We had our ceremony and reception at 413 on July 14, 2018, and we also utilized 413’s BYOB bar package. We reserved the space well in advance and Britty was consistently responsive and helpful in the over-a-year leading up to our date. The space itself was so beautiful that it needed very little added decoration, so we just added some photos and some flowers. Britty and Toni provided day-of venue coordination and were just fabulous. Everything went off without a hitch and Britty even tracked down a pliers when I had a shoe emergency calling for one! Our guests repeatedly commented on how cool the space was, and I couldn’t have asked for a better day. Thanks, 413!Sent on 08/06/2018
I have done many weddings at 413 in Wacouta. They are always very easy to work with, reliable and personable. I love the natural stone in this venue as well.
What an amazing venue! So beautiful and working with Britty is top notch! Your reception takes place in a stone basement. Classic and elegant feel!
