Here’s a unique twist for a Louisville Wedding Venue! 3rd Turn Oldham Gardens is actually a beer garden, brewery, and meadery!

3rd Turn Oldham Gardens, Louisville Kentucky

Louisville couples who lean into fun and unassuming event spaces may just want to tie the knot here at 3rd Turn Oldham Gardens. This space is unlike any other in that it is composed of different scenes within one space — all of which can be customized for your wedding day!

The absolute star of this show is the 70′ long wooden table that is settled precisely under the hanging wisteria florals and vines. If you ever dreamed of a table setting with all of your loved ones at one seemingly never-ending table, then this is your chance! This remarkable table was designed for the communal aspect — so dining with your loved ones at this spot would be the utmost dinner party you could throw.

What’s even more unique is that 3rd Turn Oldham Gardens is situated on 8.6 acres which it shares with Hive and Barrel Meadery and Backside Grill. The culmination of all 3 spots in one place gives you plenty to choose from when dreaming up the perfect setting for your wedding day and night.

Couples who are beer aficionados, and who love good craft beer, are going to love 3rd Turn Oldham Gardens. They are so serious about their craft here that they exclusively only sell on-site. You will never find their beer lining the shelves of the local store, because they are passionate about delivering you the freshest beer possible, which comes direct from the source.

On a regular day, guests of 3rd Turn Oldham Gardens can enjoy a variety of bevvies, in addition to beer there is also fruit slushies and bourbon — and visitors can hop over to the Meadery to enjoy mead and wine if they’re not into the beer scene. You will find that there’s always something exciting happening at 3rd Turn, regular special events (like trivia!) and live entertainment are on the agenda regularly.

Exploring further into the Beer Garden you will find that there’s a greenhouse beer garden space as well. With 16 beers on tap here, and 16 inside, there are a total of 32 taps consisting of local and regional beers to choose from. In the greenhouse beer garden, beer lovers can sit on benches with 12 of their friends, or more intimately at 2 top high tables. Of course, if you prefer, BYOB — Bring your own blanket! You can lay out on the soft grassy lawn while listening to music and hanging with friends.

We love this venue because it can be so easily converted to match your vibes. That’s the wonderful thing about a place that’s not overstated. You can be as casual or luxurious as you’d like — and who doesn’t love options?! Earthy and whimsical? Check! Elegant and luxurious! Check!

This venue would be best for someone who might want the reception and ceremony at different locations. It seems with the space available that would be the easiest approach, but of course, if you can dream it, you can do it! When you see the photos below from the styled shoot we had, you may just be swayed to double up!

Of course, the ideal wedding venue would have something old and something new. And you’ve got it! 3rd Turn Oldham Gardens was originally a greenhouse and nursery. Today the main space you gather in is actually the original structure. Something old, something new!

Another fun fact? The Beer Garden opened in 2017 thanks to employees from Yew Dell Garden who stepped up to help.

If you’re thinking, “This place seems familiar” it could be because they actually have another location! In Jeffersontown located in the Gaslight District you can find the original 3rd Turn’s space — which now spans over 3 historic buildings in the heart of Jeffersontown.
