Kentucky Wedding Venue: Historic Shelby Manor at Arcadia Farms

black-white-foal

Kentucky has such a diverse collection of beautiful wedding venues and we were so happy to have the opportunity to check out the Historic Shelby Manor at Arcadia Farms in Stanford, KY, near Danville.  This charming historic venue is also a bed and breakfast and sits on a working farm.  We love history so it was a special treat to find out that this house was built by Kentucky's first governor, Isaac Shelby!  The house can be used for a whole weekend for the bride and groom and they include many amenities in their packages which can be viewed here.  Thank you so much to Marie, (owner of the venue), Debra and Jerry for making us feel so welcome!  We look forward to coming back!

 We love the bridal suite!  It's unique in many ways but we especially like that the bride can look right outside the window to see the ceremony area.  They even tinted the windows so that she has additional privacy without sacrificing the beautiful natural light!
