I have worked with Shady Wagon for four years now and they are one of the easiest venues as far as response, accessibility, joy and faith. I love Lynn because she cares as much about her brides happiness as I do. Every wedding I have done and seen at Shady Wagon have been beautiful. The setting over the lake is perfect for decorations and photography. The easy Southern Style is what Lynn and I both strive for. Maybe being born and "raised" (that's a Southern word for "always lived in") this area makes it special for us. We are all about hospitality here in the South and Shady Wagon just oozes Sweet Southern Style and Hospitality. Book then soon, they fill up fast!

Shady Wagon Farm was the perfect venue for our wedding. The beautiful scenery was the backdrop for our outdoor ceremony. Not only do they have an amazing ceremony site, but they also has a pavilion for cocktail hour/dancing and an amazing barn for the reception. This is how we had our wedding, but Shady Wagon Farm has a bunch of different ways to use their farm. They also have the most precious primp and parlor for the bridal parties to get ready in before the big day.

We also can't thank Cindy enough for also performing our ceremony for us. She was so wonderful throughout the whole planning process and I am so happy that she will forever be apart of our lives.

It would be silly to ignore this as an option for your big day!

Shady Wagon Farm, New Hill was the site of my daughter's wedding this past weekend and we can't find all the words to say what a great experience this was. From the time we met the owner to the late night packing to go home after the wedding...they were AWESOME! The farm is BEAUTIFUL and out of town and local guests were shocked and amazed at the beauty. The compliments were endless to the good time they had at the wedding and of the venue. The owners go out of their way to make the wedding special in every way to make your dreams come true. If you are considering a wedding in the Raleigh/Cary/Apex/Chapel Hill area, please consider taking a trip to Shady Wagon Farm to envision your wedding day with these lovely folks and their farm.

Shady Wagon Farms provided us a wonderful experience for our wedding. We partook in the package deal which included rental of the guest rooms, wedding and reception and it was a dream come true. Cindy made sure that everything went off without a hitch and really made us feel at home. She has a great venue set up for a fun and beautiful wedding. For us it was perfect to have the reception and wedding in the same location so that our out of town guest didn't have to find 2 locations. Parking was great, and we loved how we were made to feel special by the staff. We highly recommend the Shady Wagon!!

I had a Fall wedding at Shady Wagon Farm. It was exquisite. The leaves were changing in addition to the already beautiful scenery. The ceremony took place near the pond and the reception was (walking distance) up at the barn and pavillion. This venue is perfect for weddings for 200 guests or less. There is an old country store on site that is perfect for pictures and also for guests to mill around before the ceremony. The whole place is lined with lights at night which looks great for exit pictures. The barn and pavillion are decorated with rustic/antique items so there is little you will need to add. There is also a place on site for both the groomsmen and bridesmaids to get ready. Which is great for making sure everyone is there and dressed on time!
Cindy, the owner, is so sweet. She answered all of my questions/concerns throughout my planning process.
A big money saver for us was that Shady Wagon allowed us to bring our own alcohol, with no corking fees or extra taxes.
The website pictures don't do this place justice. If you are having a wedding in the Wake County area, I highly recommend you take a look at this place.

Very happy with Shady Wagon Farm! We visited about ten venues in the triangle area - we were looking for a place that we could have both ceremony and reception for an outdoor ceremony but had a rain location for the ceremony (just in case) that we could be happy with, and didn't have to rent a tent. We were looking for a place that had a romantic, old-timey feeling.

Shady Wagon Farm is fantastic! It is a beatiful, well-maintained property, and everything is all in one place, but the area is expansive enough that there is a different vibe between the ceremony site and the reception site. The bride/groom dressing suites are also so convenient! Cindy (the owner) is very easy to work with and helped us with last-minute issues (like getting our liquor license).

There is tons of parking. There are animals roaming around - dogs, cats, geese, and ducks. The barn is convenient for weddings of varying sizes because there is enough space for expansion but also has the right space for things to be more intimate. tables, chairs, and linens can be rented through SWF which makes things much easier than having to rent them through a 3rd party.

The location is great. It's quiet and has that "away from it all" feeling but it's only a twenty minute drive from Cary.

I highly recommend hiring Lynn to be your "day of" wedding planner (also called a wedding director, "month of" wedding planner). She scheduled our wedding timeline to the minute and the day of the wedding she called all the shots so we could enjoy ourselves, and we did!

My husband and I looked a multiple places to have our wedding ceremony and/or reception. We some how stumbled across Shady Wagon Farm and decided to go have a look. The second we were on the property I knew that this was the place we would have our wedding. It was perfect. We had been to a couple of weddings where they were outdoors and you could hear the road traffic, you don't have that problem at SWF. The entire property was gorgeous. Right then and there we called our parents and told them to meet us there, within the month we were booked for the 23rd of June. When wedding day came along, I couldn't have been more pleased. Everything was perfect and just as I wanted. We had simple decorations at the ceremony site because the venue was already gorgeous enough. We set up corn hole boards by our reception for friends and family to have a game or two (which was a hit). Our pictures are gorgeous thanks to this beautiful site! We loved it and could not have picked a better spot to get married! Thanks Cindy & Shady Wagon Farm!

I was a very laid back bride and I think that is where any problems may have stemmed from. There were a lot of rules to follow and a very strict schedule for the morning of and I was a very fly by the seat of my pants kind of girl. I felt a little rushed at times. The event went very smooth and I have no complaints there. The venue is beautiful and the people are super nice.

If we were going to be crazy enough to have an outdoor wedding in August, Shady Wagon Farm was the place for it! What a beautiful venue. We got ready for the wedding in the bridal suite and in the man cave which gave everybody a space to relax in AC before the wedding. The weather couldn't have been better for August. It was warm, but the sun setting on the ceremony was beautiful and the water and the barn were the best background. The barn was a bit hot during the reception, but it is so hard to get the ideal air flow with so many people. The most difficult part of the planning process was that it is very difficult to get a hold of Cindy who owns this venue. She does not return voice messages, so just keep calling and e mailing. Despite this, Cindy did coordinate with our caterer and coordinator since they do business together often, which was VERY convenient for us! I would recommend this venue to others.

I held my wedding at Shady Wagon Farm and while it was the best day of my life, there were some things that other couples should be aware of. Don't get me wrong, the venue is beautiful and everyone had a great time including me and my husband, but I still think some things could have been improved!

First of all, it's very pricey, and it doesn't include any extras, just use of the grounds, the barn, and the dressing rooms. You also have to pay extra for ceremony chairs. You'd think after spending approx. $5000 for a Saturday wedding, the bride and groom would get a free night at the B&B!

Also, despite what they may tell you.....it does, in fact, rain at the farm. Not only did it rain, but it was a torrential downpour when my ceremony started, which had to be moved to the covered pavillion outside the barn. The weather is absolutely not their fault and it made for a lot of laughs!! The negatives? There was no drainage on the pavillion floor at all, which flooded. My sister had to hold my dress up during the entire ceremony, but the bottom of my dress still got filthy and wet afterwards, and a few guests had some personal belongings on the floor that were ruined. I wasn't thrilled that I spent a fortune on a venue that doesn't even have a good plan if it rains. The owners did work their butts off to get the dance floor cleared off while we ate dinner, which made the rest of the night flow perfectly!

My wedding day was perfect, despite all that happened. I'm just giving you a real rundown of what can happen!
