June 2024 Wedding

My husband and I just recently got married at Shadow Creek and we are still reliving our wedding day. This venue is extraordinary. From our first interaction with Lori to the conversation that I had with her right before I walked down the aisle - everything was seamless and perfect. The venue is gorgeous, it is clean, beautifully designed and creates such a warm, welcoming space for families and guests to come together and celebrate love. The Carlyle Family has truly put their heart and soul into creating such an amazing space for weddings. Thank you Shadow Creek, we will be forever grateful to have been married here!

Beautiful Shadow Creek Made Our Wedding Spectacular!

We came to Shadow Creek for its background of rolling hills, towering trees, and cow dotted pastures, but stayed for the stunning interior space. The light wood interior is loaded with many accents from beautiful chandeliers to colorful divans to rustic barrels. The bridal suite is spacious and well decorated - we spent lots of time in there taking photographs of the bridal party (8 of us). Though the groomsmen spent a fair amount of time hanging out by the firepit enjoying cigars, they had their own space loaded with leather couches and other masculine touches. Lori Carlye, owner / manager and Jimmy, our support during the wedding, were both amazing - great with ideas and suggestions while being very professional and experienced in ensuring that everything went as planned. By all accounts, our guests loved the wedding and a large part of this was the beautiful surroundings in which it was held. Thank you, Lori for everything!

Just beautiful!

Getting married at Shadow Creek was one of the best wedding decisions I could’ve made.

Shadow Creek was the first venue that we toured. The space is beautiful inside and out. The barn is beautifully decorated and has such nice accent pieces that just make it so romantic. The exterior of Shadow Creek is a huge selling point. The ceremony area is just amazing, with rolling hills behind you. It makes for amazing pictures.

I haven’t even mentioned how amazing the owner Lori is. She bent over backwards to make our wedding vision come to life. She has the best vendor recommendations and advice. She was so kind and easy to work with.

We also got Gus for cocktail hour and you will not regret it. He was such a crowd pleaser all of our guests were obsessed with him! Everyone was taking pictures and petting him. We had a couple kids who loved him but mostly the adults were huge fans. We’re not really horse people so we weren’t sure but he is just such a unique touch.

Overall we had such a nice time at our wedding and it wouldn’t have been the same without Shadow Creek and their amazing team!
