Historic Shelby Manor at Arcadia Farm Weddings

This is a wedding venue in Stanford, KY and offers beautiful scenery, a historic mansion, a beautiful wedding barn, and even overnight accommodations. Definitely one of the best newer venues in Kentucky.

The Mansion

A gorgeous mansion that offers multiple floors of elegance as a backdrop to your wedding day. It was built in 1836 by the son of the first governor of Kentucky, and Marie, the owner, takes beautiful care of this historic home and grounds. There are packages available that you can stay in the mansion for one or two nights, and the bridal suite is gorgeous with large windows, a fireplace, four post bed, and wood floors.

The salon offers elegant antique furniture, a fireplace, large windows, and simply a ton of character for photographs. I’ve held first looks in here, formal wedding party portraits, bridal portraits, groom portraits, details and more. This room is incredibly versatile.

The Wedding Barn

The wedding bard is a round barn specifically built for weddings at Arcadia. With an all white interior and decorated walls, it is a great reception site. It also acts as a backup ceremony location in case of rainy weather.

The grounds

The ling tree-lined driveway is perfect for wedding portraits. The fields are gorgeous, especially during sunset, and with 625 acres of nature, you’re sure to capture some beautiful photographs here.

Do you recommend this venue?

Absolutely. Marie and Debra are amazing people to work with and help bring weddings to life on this beautiful property.
