Airlie Gardens weddings are always such a beautiful thing to be a part of and we are lucky to photography weddings here many times each year. Airlie Gardens, located in coastal Wilmington NC is a quintessential southern estate garden. And one of the most beautiful outdoor wedding venues in Wilmington. With giant oak trees draped in spanish moss, this wedding spot is an absolute must see if you are planning to get married in southeastern NC. The sprawling lawns, year round flowers and wildlife make Airlie Gardens a wedding photographers dream and a beautiful place for engagement, bridal and wedding photography. Just exploring the Airlie Gardens trails for a few minutes will make this wedding venue a top of the list option. The Airlie Gardens staff is always incredibly helpful, and we always love shooting weddings here. It is one of the few outdoor wedding venues that can host larger weddings, but also has restrooms and golf carts available for older or disabled wedding guests. And although Airlie Gardens is known for it’s beautiful grounds, it also sits right along a tributary to the Intracoastal Waterway so there are many options for photography during a wedding day. Of all the different areas of Airlie Gardens, probably the most well known is the Airlie Oak- a massive Live Oak tree over 400 years old. And although there are many different spots you can have a wedding ceremony or reception, it’s one of my favorites. It is the perfect southern backdrop for gorgeous Airlie Gardens weddings.
