History

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.

    Dream wedding weekend!

    Our wedding weekend at Airlie was a complete dream! From the rehearsal dinner to the wedding day and the day-after breakfast, Airlie exceeded our expectations.

    We booked Airlie in fall 2019, before the pandemic, and had to reschedule our initial date. Not only did Airlie accommodate our request, they never charged us a postponement fee or additional costs of any kind, which is rare (especially given the tough business environment facing so many venues). As we dealt with more pandemic-related planning curveballs, Airlie continued to be flexible, accommodating, and kind, going above and beyond to make our weekend as lovely as possible. We need to give a special shout-out to LYDIA, who not only helped us with all of this along the way, but who seemed so genuinely thrilled for us to be getting married at Airlie—it was very sweet and meant a lot to us.

    Beyond the accommodating nature, the ACTUAL EXPERIENCE of getting married at Airlie is one we will cherish for the rest of our lives. What an amazing environment for us to be with so many loved ones for the first time in years. The rehearsal dinner in The Market at Airlie (gorgeous industrial space!) created such a warm and community-focused start to the weekend. The buffet was also UNREAL—the Airlie catering staff pulled off short rib, seafood bouillabaisse, and other potentially tough dishes in a supremely delicious way. The beautiful lake view and fire pit at The Market really topped off the evening.

    We rented the Groome’s Cottage to stay in for the weekend—it’s a lovely getting ready space because there is a nicely sized lounge area and a deck (in addition to private rooms). The bride, her mom, and 10 women of honor were able to comfortably spend all day together in this space and really make themselves at home! The groom and his people of honor got ready in the Game Room by the pool. This was also very fun; they played pool, chess, and foosball. Both groups also ordered lunch from Airlie—sandwiches, wraps, etc. It was all DELICIOUS—energizing, filling but not too much so, and so fresh! (Honestly, all of the food we had was actually even better day-of than it was at our tasting.)

    There are so many stunning spaces at Airlie. Our guests later reported that they had a great time exploring the property. And we loved being able to have our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception in different parts of the venue. One thing that appealed to us early on when we were deciding on a venue was that Airlie staff always made us feel so welcome as we visited the property, and that spirit was present during our wedding weekend as well. They even added hooks to the reception space to accommodate a design request.

    Finally, the breakfast on Sunday was delicious and excellent fare for hangovers. A+ all around. In all seriousness, we will forever treasure our dream wedding weekend at Airlie.

Ever After Visuals Ever After Visuals Wedding Photographers

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.
