We have a location… and date!

After many sleepless nights contemplating where to have our wedding and really thinking about what we wanted our loved ones to take away from the day, we have made a decision.  Our main goal for the wedding (besides getting hitched) is to bring our family and friends together for a weekend filled with love and good times.  We decided we wanted to get away from the city to make this happen and eventually found our way to Shadow Lawn in High Falls, NY.  Now, unfortunately, there happen to be two High Falls in the state of NY…why NY? why?  Our High Falls is about 1 hour 45 minutes north of NYC in the Hudson Valley, not minutes from Canada.  I’m sure this is going to come back and haunt me throughout the planning process. It’s worth it though, the place is amazing!

“Situated at the crest of a waterfall, Shadow Lawn is romantic and picturesque. Its 18-century stone house contributes to a formal note. The 19-century barn is elegant yet unpretentious, and the brook and manicured grounds provide a serene backdrop for perfect occasions of all kinds.” -wellwed magazine

We can’t wait till September 18, 2010!!!

    Hi Amanda,

    I came across this page when doing a search on Shadow Lawn for a possible wedding location…I see you recently had your wedding there and was wondering if you could offer any advice or what you thought of the location/planning, etc.

    Any help would be much appreciated.
    thank you,

    Hi Karoline,

    We had the wedding of our dreams at Shadow Lawn! I would highly recommend it. We loved all our vendors and everything went off perfectly. One note I would make is that Shadow Lawn is definitely only a place for the really hands of planner. But that is what we loved about it, it was 100% our vision and I was able to have a say in each detail. Good luck!
