    A Magical Property

    WOW. This place is truly amazing. Not only is it the most beautiful venue, but they ran like a well oiled machine on wedding day. The venue director was incredibly helpful and responsive throughout the entire process, and the staff on the day of executed everything perfectly. Any time I needed to go anywhere, the golf cart was ready for me!

    I loved that they had so many ceremony locations to choose from, and the property is kept absolutely immaculate. All of our guests were raving about how beautiful it was. So so pleased with this venue, would recommend to anyone!!

    Secret Garden Wedding Vibes

    From the moment I first stepped foot on the premises of Historic Shady Lane I knew this was a venue like no other. They say if you can picture your wedding day coming to life then it’s the place for you. And even though my fiancé and I visited in March when nothing was in bloom we could still see the beauty and we knew this was the perfect place for our wedding day. Bradania and the whole HSL team were phenomenal! They worked with us every step of the way and Bradania answered all of our questions promptly. Every single one of our guests were in awe of the beauty of the site. They all said this was the most beautiful wedding that they’ve ever been to. We wed in July and even though it was a hot summer day, the cool shade of the trees kept us all comfortable. If you want a dream wedding like no other, then this is the perfect place for you!

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!
