Shady Elms Farm wedding days provide a beautiful all-inclusive experience, perfect for any country themed wedding day. Located in the small town of Hickory, Shady Elms Farm is within reasonable travel distance from Downtown Pittsburgh, less than 30 miles southwest of the city. The farm features a Georgian style two story farm house, picturesque backyard patio & gazebo, scenic fields, a country pond with boat dock, carriage house, and renovated barn that is the signature piece of the farm’s country wedding day experience. Shady Elms Farm offers a unique approach to the start of their wedding days by providing a private brunch for the bride & bridesmaids outside on their relaxing back patio. For your reception, you can choose from either a festively lit outdoor patio with inlaid dancefloor for larger parties or their 120-year-old rustic barn for smaller more intimate gatherings. A custom vining arbor with a glistening pond in the background sets the stage for a beautiful outdoor ceremony. That evening, whether your reception is in their vintage barn or at their outdoor tent & patio guests are free to roam around the farm at their leisure. Throughout the evening there’s also a carriage house for guests to mingle that features an espresso bar and cookie table.

Pittsburgh Outdoor Wedding Venues
What I love about this venue the most it’s wide variety of photo-worthy locations for creating portraits. The farmhouse patio is a great spot for first look photos, and the pond & fields is a fantastic spot for sunset bride & groom photos after dinner. Aside from the venue itself, the owners and staff are professional and very easy going to work with. They do an excellent job of keeping your day on point so that each event flows into the other seamlessly. Below you can see some highlights from a Shady Elms Farm wedding day.
