Our wedding at Shadowland far surpasses expectations! We came in with a firm idea of an elegant beach affair and we even had our own menu devised with specific needs and wants for our food and beverage service. Not only did they comply with our vision, they added their own suggestions and flair, pulled vendors in to create the ice sculpture that doubled as a seafood serving station centerpiece and shrimp tray and their chef knocked our socks off and left the guests buzzing! I can't say enough good things about this experience with Shadowland. They handled everything from custom wines, signature cocktails, dressing up the space they way we wanted, worked well with all our vendors and they're just plain good people and a joy to work with. The combo of a casual beach side wedding at Silver Beach and an elegant affair in Shadowland was everything we dreamed of and more. Our guests were beyond thrilled for what many told us was 'the best wedding they've ever attended' !

From the moment we saw Shadowland we were set on it being our venue. It is a beautiful location, we the best amenities it has to offer. The prices for the services you are getting are unbeatable! Let me break it down!
Nicole and Jane:
THEY ARE AMAZING! We live in Wisconsin, so we planned most of the wedding from afar. I communicated mostly with Jane and she literally is the best! You had a question or problem, Jane offered amazing solutions. She is quick to respond and did not make me feel like any of my questions or concerns were silly. The day before the wedding I was emailing her at 12am and she responded right away! That is dedication and makes a bride feel so special. The day of the wedding it rained and we moved it inside. She let my bridal party take over her office before the ceremony, so we could "hide". It just shows you what kind of person she is! I can rave and rave about Jane making my day go just perfect!
Was amazing! My guests raved about the food. We did the root beer short rib and Chicken with gravy. We asked the chef to serve a vegetarian item that was no longer on the menu, he did. It was hit or miss with our guests, but it makes sense why they took it off the menu. Every guest had enough to eat. Kids: they do not charge for kids under 5 which is so nice of them to do. ALSO!! The plated option is less expensive then the buffet! Which is very rare for venues! Each plate was about $22-25 per person. Kids meals were less expensive.
We decided to go with the medium level option for $22 a person for 5 hours. (5:45pm-10:45pm) Which was the perfect amount of time. Pours were generous and the signature drinks we chose were a hit and delicious.
Carousel: If you can budget it, it is a must!! It really added to the experience and my guests said that because of that, it is a wedding they'll never forget.

My husband and I had our wedding reception at Shadowland this month, and we couldn't be happier that we chose to have it there (after an extensive search).
The ballroom is gorgeous, and looked even more beautiful as the sun set, it doesn't need many extra decorations. The patio was a big draw of our guests, as was the proximity to Lake Michigan. My husband and I took golden hour photos on the beach, and guests also enjoyed walking down to the beach throughout the evening.
The thing that raised our experience to such a high level, was working with Nicole and others; she, especially, relieved so much stress in such a busy planning time, and was always so accessible, organized and friendly. Thank you for everything! The wedding guests make the day, but having such a pretty and classy venue definitely added a special element.
