On WeddingWire since 2023

Nestled in the peaceful setting of Geneseo, Illinois, Shadow Lake is a delightful banquet hall that cordially invites couples to host their dream wedding festivities in the company of their loved ones. This waterside event center came into fruition in the spring of 2022, when seven couples joined forces to purchase the building, and after extensive cleaning, renovating, and designing, reopened the property to the public as a bespoke event space. Shadow Lake now serves as an idyllic setting for a wide range of celebrations, most notably weddings.

Facilities and Capacity

Boasting over 140 acres of pastoral countryside vistas, this one-of-a-kind venue is ideal for couples embracing an rural escape for their marital union. The picturesque waterside ceremony location sets the stage for a magical beginning, followed by a reception where guests can dance beneath the stars. For those desiring shelter from the elements, a high-end tent is available on the property, accommodating up to 275 guests. This tent features an open-plan layout, elegant white drapery, and adjustable sides for added comfort. You can pamper and refresh in their railcar bathrooms, adding an extra touch of eccentricity and rustic charm to the location.

Services Offered

Shadow Lake offers a range of convenient services and amenities for couples. The venue provides ample space and electricity, allowing couples the flexibility to choose their preferred caterer or DJ. Onsite bathrooms are available, and couples even have the option to invite food trucks. Shadow Lake takes care of all beverage needs, including drinks and alcohol.
