Debra Sabia

I am a retired university professor and the Events Director at Historic Shelby Manor , Lincoln County's newest wedding venue located at Arcadia Farm. While my career has taken me around the world one of the most beautiful places that I have ever visited is right here in the Blue Grass State! My first trip to Arcadia Farm was so enchanting that I knew right away that it would be the perfect place for an intimate, romantic Special Events venue. With the consent and assistance of the property's owners we are now happy to offer its unique charm to others .
