The White Shanty Wedding Info
Shanty may mean crude shack, but there is nothing crude or shack-like about the White Shanty. The main facade features sliding barn doors filled with windows that can either be opened or closed for your event. There are also sliding doors on the side of the venue that open onto a grassy area and patio. There are plenty of plants throughout the venue to create a greenhouse feel.

The large sliding barn doors are a perfect backdrop, whether your ceremony is inside or out. It’s just about the time of year, and where you want to place the audience. The doors can either be opened or closed. Indoor you are wed under a tall, vaulted ceiling with an industrial chic aesthetic and metal sculpture accents. Outside you stand on a gravel patio in front of a grassy area surrounded by trees and native grasses.
