About Us

Shadybrook Hitching Post is operated by myself, family, friends and amazing coordinators. My passion for creating amazing weddings began 7 years ago when my niece thought it was the perfect area for an outdoor wedding. Why not? We had spent many a time here for campouts, bbq’s, parties–so we ran with it. And it was stunning! So, as the grounds came together, the wedding ensued and the photos emerged, the idea of a potential career shift came into focus for me.

Adding on a tranquil waterfall, elegant pavilion then building our beautiful rustic barn—we knew we had something very special! Every person that has been involved here at Shadybrook has invested a little bit of their heart—which makes it even more special to us. We want YOU to fall in love with Shadybrook. Whether you are Minimalistic to Ultimate Glam–we have you covered! We love to see when our couples post and repost their photos–it reflects how precious these memories are and we are very proud to be a small portion of this important time in their lives. Let’s connect and make some lifelong memories for you!

Always my best,
Anne Reed

Beautiful venue. I'm a wedding photographer & everytime i've shot here, I've had nothing but positive experiences! It's always clean & smells good. The bathrooms have toiletries & little things for the men & women.

AMAZING VENUE WITH THE MOST AMAZING CREW. Our day went smoothly with the help of the crew and as a bride, I couldn't appreciate that enough. They work so hard behind the scenes and make things so stress free!!!


This was the first venue we looked at after we got engaged and instantly fell in love with it! We booked it the next day and couldn't have been happier. We had an August wedding and everything on the property was beautiful.
