Situated on 625 acres of bluegrass countryside, the venue can accommodate up to 200 guests in our octagon shaped wedding pavilion with ceremony sites available outside the historic Shelby Manor and throughout the Arcadia Farm. The tranquil, intimate environment is created by the surrounding scenery:

Services Offered

Whether it鈥檚 your wedding, a bridal shower, a ceremony, an elopement, an engagement party, a reception, or a rehearsal dinner, Historic Shelby Manor at Arcadia Farm is happy to provide you space. When reserved, couples can have exclusive use of the grounds the day before their wedding in order to host the rehearsal dinner and prepare decorations. Arcadia aims to create a relaxed atmosphere for every couple. The staff at Arcadia is also willing to work with approved outside vendors as needed.

Within our Arcadia offerings, we do have on-site catering available as well as coordinating services, but these are not required services. While we supply you with tables and chairs, including ceremony chairs, we can also offer rental items such as arches/backdrops, linens, serviceware, and overnight accommodations.

We have a gift of hospitality at Arcadia. Before booking your block of rooms in the area, consider housing some of your guests, wedding party and family with us. The historic mansion has guest rooms available as well as a fun bunkhouse over one of the barns. Coming soon will be additional guest cottages for your convenience and comfort.

Prefect wedding

Our wedding was a dream come true. The venue was everything we could have asked for. The place is magnificent and Absolutely stunning. The staff was more then appreciated and helpful for the entire wedding. I would recommend this place to everyone. If I had more time and more money I still would have chosen this horse farm.

I look forward to assisting you with your dream day.

I have been in the wedding and event business for over 30 years and am so glad to be part of the Arcadia family.

I have been part of Arcadia since the beginning. I helped design and construct the octagonal pavilion as well as the surrounding gardens.

I am so happy that you have considered or have chosen us to be part of your special day!!
