We've had a chance to work with several venues and by far Shady Wagon has the total package. Their staff is very professional and experienced. Their venue is clean, well kept and has mature vegetation. The property is versatile and can offer a bride several different options when planning her special day. One of our favorite features is that this venue has the best of both worlds - a place for inside and outdoor entertaining. If I was looking to get married in the Raleigh area, they would be my top choice!
Just beyond the hustle and bustle, Shady Wagon Farm is a peaceful, beautiful place. Add to that setting a staff of incredibly kind, professional people and you have an amazing venue. It's a pleasure to know and work with Shady Wagon!
This is an absolutely beautiful place to have a wedding ceremony and reception! The lake with the barn in the background is so picturesque! We always have a wonderful event here.
