Dating back to 1545 and draped in Spanish moss, the Airlie Oak is the focal point of the Oak Lawn. Most popular for a tented reception, the large lawn provides plenty of space for dinning, entertainment and lawn games.

Located between Airlie Lake and Bradley Creek Pier, the Bradley Creek lawn creates a romantic atmosphere and water view for any ceremony or tented event.

As a ceremony only location, the Pergola Garden is our most popular site to exchange vows. Our natural bridal walk acts as an aisle for the bride to process toward her groom.

Our Bottle Chapel Lawn features a beautiful sculpture of colored bottles, celebrating the spirit of Minnie Evans. Most commonly used for smaller ceremonies and tented receptions, this lawn offers a more intimate spot for up to 150 guests.

Airlie does not have any equipment available for rent or use for any event. You will be responsible for selecting your vendors. Our venue coordinator can suggest vendors, though you are free to choose your own.
In the event of rain, it is your choice to have a tent on reserve through your rental company. Tents can be placed on either the Oak Lawn or Bradley Creek Lawn.
It is a required condition for all events that you have a qualified Day-Of Planner or Coordinator that is responsible for setup, cleanup, management of vendors, and directing any sort of rehearsal, ceremony or reception.
As a show garden, our blooms change constantly. We cannot project what may be blooming at any particular time or what colors may be featured; however, you can rest assure that no matter what season your event falls, there will be flowers in bloom.
No. The gardens remain open to the public during regular business hours (9am – 5pm). After-hour events may only be scheduled on Saturday.
No. While we love our furry friends, pets of any kind are prohibited.
