"Historic Shady Lane was the absolute best venue we could have dreamed of having for our wedding day! Every square inch of the grounds is so well kept and absolutely stunning. Being able to have every part of our day at the venue made the day run so smooth and made me feel so calm as a bride. Caitlyn was amazing to work with and made the whole planning process so easy! There are so many different locations on the property to take photos and every single one is stunning! The tent was perfect for our reception and since it is such a blank slate we could make it unique for our day. All of guests commented how beautiful the venue was and loved the property. The golf cart staff was amazing on the wedding day, especially since it was so hot that it was nice not to have to walk everywhere. Could not recommend Historic Shady Lane enough, I wish we could do it all over again!!"
"The moment we saw Historic Shady Lane we fell in love (so did our guests, they are still raving about it)! The estate is tucked away and the moment you enter it feels like you walked into a fairytale. Every single spot is picture perfect! The getting ready areas were incredible and able to accommodate our every need. They also provide golf carts which were amazing for us and our guests since it was so warm on our day. Caitlyn was a pleasure to work with, her and the staff at HSL were always very pleasant and helpful. We really loved the fact that there were so many ceremony and reception locations to choose from to completely customize your day to fit your aesthetic. With the help of the staff, the amazing locations, and the variety of packages we were able to experience a magical celebration that us and our guests will never forget! For that, we will forever be grateful."

"This venue is just something out of a dream!! Aside from the totally gorgeous setting, the team was amazing to work with throughout the planning process - super accessible and responsive to any questions we had. And they were stellar on the day of - everyone we interacted with was incredibly helpful and such a pleasure to work with. We were unsure about rain on the day of and even though we lucked out with great weather, the team was ready to execute a rain plan if needed. Couldn’t have asked for a better place for our special day."
