    Positively Perfect in Every Way!

    Shady Lane is THE place you want to book for your wedding. Michael, Linda, and the rest of their team do it right and do it perfectly every time. They have created amazing spaces for ceremonies, receptions, and photo opportunities. The Bride's loft and Groom's cottage are the perfect spaces for preparing for your wedding day and are beautifully appointed. I cannot say enough good things about Shady Lane.

    The Barn at Shady Lane is the best!

    We couldn't be happier that we chose The Barn at Shady Lane for our daughter's wedding reception! From the first contact we had with them, until the end of the reception, Linda and her team were great to work with. It. is so evident that Linda loves what she does and genuinely gets so excited about your event. We had a large wedding and the space was more than accommodating for the reception. Every space is so thought out and perfect - from the bride's loft to the groom's cottage, the space for catering, the bar area, the porches, and especially the beautiful outside areas for perfect sunset pictures, The Barn at Shady Lane has it all. We couldn't recommend it higher!

    The Barn at Shady Lane's reply:

    Cathy,
    SUCH a beautiful event! We loved working with you and enjoyed every minute of the day. Well done!

    The Barn at Shady Lane is absolutely wonderful

    We couldn’t think of a better place to have gotten married. The Barn at Shady Lane was absolutely wonderful! The Adlers were a dream to work with and the venue is beautiful. The areas to get ready were spacious, and they did a wonderful job quickly flipping the room between the ceremony and reception. The Barn at Shady Lane will always hold a special place in our hearts.

    The Barn at Shady Lane's reply:

    Sara - You were such a gorgeous bride and we loved hosting all of you on that wonderful day. Thanks for the kind words!
