Wow! Perfect Venue
My husband and I knew right away that historic shady lane was where we wanted to have our wedding. We fell in love with the look, the amenities, and the staff our first visit (middle of winter). We knew if we loved the look during winter, we would be even more in love when our wedding day came around (fall). The women at the venue were always available to answer all of the questions we had over our two year planning. When our wedding day came, they handled everything for us, we didn’t have to worry about a thing. I wish we could do it all over again. Thank you Historic Shady Lane!Sent on 10/15/2019

The most beautiful venue!
My now husband and I got married here August 30th. Let me just tell you, it was better than I had dreamed of! I knew when I found this venue, it was one. I was in such amazement while touring this place, and it even ruined all other venues that I had toured. The staff there were so helpful and were always quick to answer our many questions. On the day of, I walked into the cottage to find a card and a surprise gift. Staff were always checking in and helpful. I have since had multiple compliments from guests about how it was the most beautiful wedding they have ever been to, and I feel the same about this venue!Sent on 10/08/2019

This place is incredible. Unbelievable. Magical. You may think I am biased because I got married there, but seriously every other guest at cocktail hour told me they couldn't believe what an incredible venue it was. Bradania will always be there for you to answer even the tiniest of questions and even the owners of the property were around towards the end and chatted with us and were so friendly. We were able to tour the place a few times with different vendors and family members before the big day which really helped with the planning process.Sent on 08/24/2019
I CANNOT SAY ENOUGH about what is included with the packages. it's actually crazy. The price itself may sound slightly higher than a cheap venue but it is sooooo worth it because you get:
• All chairs and tables for ceremony, cocktail, and reception
• SO MUCH vintage furniture to get amazing photos with
• Draping and chandeliers in the tent
• Chandeliers and ferns on the historic glass greenhouse
• Fans or heat
• Bathrooms and parking
• Staff onsite all day
•Awesome getting ready areas for girls and guys
I am sure I am forgetting a bunch. But the day ran so so so smoothly and I think that is a huge part thanks to Bradania and the HSL. Can't thank them enough!

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.
