Airlie House was founded by Harry Connelly Groome in 1899. The original structure was lost to fire and constructed again in 1924. Both the house and the surrounding gardens have for the most part been preserved. In 1961, the estate was transformed into Airlie Center and earned the moniker, “Island of Thought.” Here, activists met to promote positive change for civil and human rights. To this day, the estate serves as a gathering place for numerous activities, while also functioning as a working farm.

Airlie is one of the most beautiful and elegant settings you will find anywhere. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with them over the years for weddings and events of all kinds.
Absolutely gorgeous wedding venue, locally sourced menu and creative chefs!
Airlie is on our list as one of our favorite venues in DC to work with. We’ve worked there for years and love the combination of beautiful locations to have the wedding outside and the gorgeous manor house, which proves to be the perfect backdrop for images. The locations for the wedding are exceptionally beautiful and they have everything from manicured grounds with gardens galore; a huge lake, complete with swans; waterfalls, stone fences and arches all around the property – and then there is the back of the house with the huge stairs and archways three stories high just perfect for photos with the ones you love. We’ve always found the staff to be exceptionally easy to work with, and the food has always been incredible. We also love how Airlie is set up so that you can have a beautiful wedding inside, too, either at the manor house or at inside the glass enclosed pavilion so it is perfect any time of year. I’ve watched over and over as they take great care of our brides, making sure their wedding is unforgettable. Joriana and I are always are super excited to work with any couple who is having an Airlie wedding because they stand out as a cut above.
