From the moment my daughter and her fiancee pulled onto the property they knew Shady Wagon Farm was where they wanted to be married. The setting is beautiful and the owners are so accommodating and kind. Having the outdoor option with the indoor backup plan was one of the reasons we picked this venue. It was cold and rainy on the wedding day so the ceremony was moved into the pavilion. Monica (Shady Wagon's wedding coordinator - worth every penny and more!) took care of every detail and created a beautiful indoor setting using what we had ordered for outside. (The owners have made the barn and pavilion so charming that additional decorations were hardly needed). Every vendor they recommended was amazing and every request we had they went above and beyond to accommodate. Our event was so beautiful and stress free and our guests told us over and over what a lovely venue it was. Thank you Shady Wagon Farm for everything you did to make my daughter's day perfect! Highly recommend!Sent on 03/30/2018

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.
