  • THIS PLACE IS UNBELIEVABLE!!!! everything from the location, the Estate/the Barn and the staff is exceptional! The event planner (Katherine) is the most helpful, trustworthy and bubbly person to work with . We had to make changes to the "location" of the ceremony last minute due to the rain and Katherine buckled up her staff and was ready to get to work. As the bride, my jaw dropped after I saw what they had done to the barn! it was magical! Even though we provided a lot of the decorations, Katherine and her staff added so many " little surprises" for the ceremony and the after party --- i literally cannot say enough about the Estate and the staff. Everyone I've talked to who stayed with us at the Estate and attended our ceremony will tell you that it was " PERFECT in every way" ! Thank you Katherine and Shawnee!!! You have met and exceeded any expectations I had for a small, mid-COVID, wedding ceremony!

    Zerina, THANK YOU! It was absolutely wonderful to work with you & your family! From the beginning to the very end, my staff and I adored being around you all and had a blast setting up for the wedding! Even though the rain storms were looking scary the whole day prior to the ceremony, the sun came out at the perfect time that evening to help create a beautiful setting for such a special, heartwarming moment for you and Rob! You all were a delight to work with and I am honored that you chose our venue to share such an important day with us! Thank you from myself and our staff at Shawnee Farms Estate! Katherine Spain
