Welcome to Historic Shady Lane

Tucked away on 34 acres in York County, Pennsylvania, Historic Shady Lane provides the perfect outdoor wedding experience. You and your guests will be treated with historic stone backdrops, forests and gardens, and a gorgeous glass greenhouse. We have buildings from 3 different centuries on the estate, and each have a story to tell. With lush,  naturally-landscaped grounds, your ceremony will have a beautiful backdrop without having to purchase any extras! Let nature paint its own canvas and let us help you to make your day your own.

Wedding Day

Start your day in our bridal suites then head outside for bridal portraits anywhere you please on our 34 acres of luscious grounds. Walk down the aisle to your forever at your choice of ceremony location then onto cocktail hour with family and friends in the greenhouse. Finish out your celebration in the reception tent with dinner and dancing, or relaxing in the gazebo or by the fire pit.

I honestly don't even know where to start. My wedding was a dream, and the venue and staff of HSL are absolutely amazing. From day one it was a fantastic experience, we knew from the venue tour that this was where we wanted our special day to take place. The staff was a real selling point, other tours felt like "just another meeting," but the staff at Shady Lane from day one REALLY cared about you as a couple, your story, and what you were looking for when it came to the biggest day of your life. From there they were literally with us every single step of the way. Caitlin did a fantastic job with sending us check in emails along the planning process, giving me tips on vendors or other things that I should be thinking about/doing. They were also extremely responsive to any questions that I had, and flexible if I needed to meet with them in person for any reason. The venue has a beautiful bridal cottage for the girls to get ready in which i a HUGE space. The guys also have a private den in a separate house. There are so many great spots for pictures and to hold your cocktail hour outside of the white reception tent. The staff the day of was extremely attentive and was there for whatever we needed. I want to re-live my wedding day over and over again, and I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful venue.
