    The BEAUTIFUL Historic Shady Lane

    I wanted to take a moment and express how amazing this place actually is. Due to the pandemic, we had to change our wedding location 2 weeks prior to our wedding. Our photographer, Vince Ha managed to help us find this venue. We needed something quick! Vince got us in contact with them and we had a contract signed! We got lucky to say the least and everything worked out. The Location is amazing for all size weddings! The Groom and groomsman get a great little basement area (with a covered patio) to hang out in while the bride and bridesmaids get a cute little cottage! The Location has a bunch of land for you to choose your perfect spot! I would strongly consider it! If you are still looking for a photographer as well, go with Vince Ha Photography. Vince, Amy, and his sister (all wonderful Photographers at Vince Ha Photography) have great chemistry here and really understand the lay of the land. (look at some of the photos on the site, most all are Vince Ha). I strongly recommend this location for your venue! Thank you so much Historic Shady Lane for such an amazing time! It was more than we could have asked for!

    magical - centrally located - clean and organized

    As listed in nearly every other 5 Star review of HSL, the venue is truly MAGICAL. The first time I visited Shady Lane for a photo shoot 2 years prior to our wedding, I knew this is where I wanted to get married. When my fiance and I took the tour of the venue after we got engaged, he leaned over to me and told me that we needed to keep our options open because this venue was a bit out of our budget. Half way through our tour with Lauren, he pulled me aside and said that he didn't want to look anywhere else because it was absolutely perfect. And on 11.01.19, it was perfect. We were crushed to hear the news of Lauren leaving the venue because honestly she was 90% of the reason we booked the venue. She seemed incredibly trustworthy and dedicated and diligent. And she was. We were hesitant when we were virtually introduced to our new venue coordinator, Bradania, but she filled Lauren's shoes very well. Bradania was quick to answer any questions we had within a 24 hour time frame, sometimes even in just 2 hours. There was a giant rainstorm the night before our wedding, but the new plot of land in the Grove area where we got married wasn't soaked enough to be an issue. We were SO excited to be the first to get married in that gorgeous new woody, earthy location! From planning, to the end of the night wrap up at 11pm, the staff on golf carts and running around the venue were extremely helpful. I have to give a huge shout out to Sara and Katie for manning the firepit with my crazy friends who are total firebugs. You ladies handled them well and with good humor! They can't stop talking about how much fun they had with you. I can't even begin to write down how many people told us the venue was stunning and it was the perfect location for a wedding. The cottage and the den are amazing for green room areas. The greenhouse is perfect as is and hardly needs any decor at all. The tent is jaw dropping and so cozy feeling. We even got to bring our dogs onto the property before the wedding to get photos with them while we were getting ready & with our bridal party! That truly made it even more special. The only mishap we had with the day was our DJs couldn't get their music to play right before the reception as guests were moving in after cocktail hour. They told me they had all set up and tested prior to there ceremony with no bugs, but someone who was tending the lawn of the venue could have possibly run over the cord for their set up when they came down for ceremony & cocktail hour. The issue was quickly resolved by the owner and I didn't hear about it until the day after so it all seemed perfect to me! Thank you, Shady Lane, for making our wedding 100.

    Historic Shady Lane is an incredible venue with countless photo opportunities. Friendly staff and hands down one of my favorite venues in the area.

  • Mountain Laurel Catering & Events Wedding Caterers

    Historic Shady Lane has become one of our favorite venues. It is not only set on a beautiful property abundant with greenery, but it also offers rustic space and unique atmosphere within old stone walls. Our heart though was stolen by the people who take care and manage the venue. Lauren is amazing to work with. She is a professional, yet extremely friendly and welcoming property manager. We could not say enough good words about Historic Shady Lane!

    Historic Shady Lane is breathtaking and I always look forward to my many visits there.
