Extremely friendly people and so clean and organized!!

Our daughter was married this weekend at “The Barn at Shadey Lane” and the first person who welcomed me was the owner Michael . His joyful smile was a warm welcome and his fist words were “ welcome! We are here to help.. just let us know what we can do…”And he went back to making sure it was a magical place. His wife -Linda is so happy and helpful and I when I explained my husband is in a wheelchair she was all about making sure he was going to be comfortable. It was a beautiful evening with lots of celebrating and this is a venue I will talk about for years to come!!

The Best Wedding Venue in Birmingham

The Barn at Shady Lane is perfect for any bride because the space is so versatile. They have such a great venue to host indoor and/or outdoor events. Our wedding day ended up being cold and rainy, but it didn’t matter because the indoor space was perfect for accommodating our guests. We loved that there was a bridal suite, but also an entire house on the property for the groomsmen to hang out in. The space is completely handicapped accessible, which was very important to us. There are so many great places on the property to take photos, even if it’s raining! The cherry on top of everything is the couple that owns the venue. Michael and Linda Adler were such a pleasure to work with, and they were so accommodating. They are so organized and have “the flip” down to a science. We are so glad we’re a Shady Lane Couple!

The Perfect Setting

Easy to reserve this venue. Linda provided clear communication through the year and we had access all day to setup and prepare. Comfortably accommodated 120 guests. Grooms cottage is large. Bridal suite is cozy.
