Weddings & Events

Since its earliest beginnings as a private garden, Airlie’s picturesque grounds have attracted guests for lavish parties and extravagant entertaining. Conveniently located near Wrightsville Beach, Airlie has remained a coastal oasis known for its formal gardens, seasonal blooms, live oaks and historic structures.
