Michael & Linda Adler, owners of The Barn at Shady Lane

Michael Adler is a Minnesota native who loves the outdoors, big family gatherings and wakes up each day thinking of what he could create. Linda grew up in Phoenix in a home where her dad was a coach and spent much of her early years as a competitive swimmer. Both of them professional musicians, Michael gladly bears the title of “Worship Arts Pastor” at his church where he leads a large team of creatives. Linda teaches voice, loves her four sons, loves doing girl things with her daughters in law and is the amazing design eye behind all things Shady Lane. Always on a quest to create more enchanting spaces, they share their home with two chihuahuas and a rag doll cat named Mr Bingley. 

The Barn at Shady Lane is the fulfillment of the dreams and passions of owners Michael and Linda Adler, who have together helped propel Shady Lane’s elegant wedding and event venue to repeated “Best Of” status. They have a blast doing life together and work hard to make every event at Shady Lane everything you dreamed it could be.

The Barn at Shady Lane is the perfect place for anyone to get married! They took care of everything on the day of the wedding and we didn’t have to worry about clean up or set up which was a huge relief. The venue is beautiful whether you get married inside or outside. The Barn was plenty big for my 275 guests and the patio is absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much for making my day perfect!!

love, kelsey

We chose to celebrate our day at the Barn because Michael and Linda were so amazing to work with. They turned our dreams into a reality and were so accommodating with every request, especially all of the last minute ones. We got so many compliments on how beautiful our venue was and how wonderful the whole day went because of Michael and Linda's support! I’ve been to many of my friends weddings and The Barn exceeded all of our other experiences - we cant recommend the Adlers enough!

love, claire

The Barn was the perfect venue! The owners helped us so much. You can tell they love what they get to do. The outdoor arbor was perfect for our ceremony and the indoor barn and patios worked great for our springtime wedding. Thank you!

love, jennifer

The Barn at Shady Lane provided the perfect backdrop for mine and Braden's day. My only real advice would be call them today! They book up very fast because the venue is so great! From the initial meeting to the day of the Adler's were extremely easy to work with and were there to help us with anything we needed. They are an extremely laid back but incredibly professional venue and we were so grateful for everything they did for us.
