Katie W. · Getting married on 10/09/2021
The moment we walked up to Shadow Creek and met Lori, we knew it was the spot we wanted to have our wedding! Lori walked us through exactly how our big day would go, rain or shine. Throughout the entire year, even during the pandemic, Lori was so flexible and we had no worries about where the ceremony and reception were going to take place because the venue is so beautiful inside and out. Funny enough it was an insanely windy day and the ceremony had to be moved inside. While it took me by surprise I knew it would still be perfect! Lights flickered, the generator came on and the party kept going! The guests raved about how amazing and gorgeous our venue was and the beauty of it honestly made decorating so easy!! We are so thankful we chose Shadow Creek and hope to attend many more weddings there!Sent on 05/19/2021

Shadow Creek's reply:Katie and Nick's wedding was beautiful, and this was a perfect time to have a great Plan B! On their wedding day we experienced unexpected wind gusts in excess of 50 mph, trees were blown over, and Nick's eyes, during the ceremony, were looking like he was about to faint :) Thank goodness for a gorgeous calm Katie, a lovely Plan B, and a commercial instant on generator! Cheers to the newlyweds!

So thankful to Lori!
Beautiful space and an even more kind staff. I am beyond thankful to Lori for accommodating us during our rescheduling due to COVID. They worked with us in finding a new date for when we could have the perfect day that we always hoped for. It was everything and more we always wanted. So many guests kept gushing how beautiful the space was.Sent on 07/21/2021
Shadow Creek's reply:Thank you Ellie, you were such a beautiful bride and your wedding was absolutely lovely. I love how you and your family brought all of the gorgeous green touches from home! I am sure the stress of having to navigate through Covid and not knowing what the future held only strengthened your and Michael's relationship. All the best to both of you!

Shadow Creek is absolutely MAGICAL. My husband and I were married here and had 100 of our nearest and dearest celebrate our love on these gorgeous grounds. Each time I stepped foot on the property, I felt I was on vacation. It is quiet, clean, and very well maintained. The cows even came up close and joined our guests! As for the owner Lori, I can’t say enough wonderful things about her. She helped us navigate through planning during COVID, she was always responsive and professional, and she lent a helping hand the day of to make sure everything went flawlessly. If you are looking for a spacious barn (with great air conditioning!) on a gorgeous property, Shadow Creek is certainly a venue worth seeing. Thank you Lori for making our dream wedding come true!Sent on 07/13/2021
