July 2020 Wedding
Michael and I dreamed about getting married at Historic Shady Lane for several years and finally on July 10th, our dreams came true. The property is drop dead gorgeous. My guests could not stop raving about it. They said it was the most amazing venue they had ever seen, and I agree! The staff, especially Bradania, are sooo wonderful. Planning a wedding is stressful enough, but having to deal with rescheduling due to COVID was nightmarish, but Bradania calmed our nerves and took care of us. She was so comforting in a time with so much uncertainty, we knew we were in good hands. It rained the day of our wedding, but everything went off without issue. It almost looked even more romantic in the rain. Our ceremony was in the greenhouse and the reception was under the large tent, and they quickly swapped the cocktail hour to inside the greenhouse. They offer a lot of on site assistance and management and even allow you to use the antique furniture which added to our whole aesthetic. They are the total package. It was a dream. That's the best way to describe it! Attached photos are credited to Maria Crisafulli Photography.Sent on 09/26/2020

Historic Shady Lane is nothing short of incredible. Bradania and staff were all incredibly sweet and helpful. The response to covid necessitated a very short notice delay of our wedding, but aside from there being less flowers in bloom in late summer, the venue and event were all as lovely as we could have hoped. Thank you all!Sent on 10/28/2020

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