Knot-tying trends come and go. But there's one Northern Virginia wedding venue with a timeless style as enduring as your love for each other—that's Airlie.
Just 50 miles outside D.C., Airlie transports you to a world filled with rich history, heartwarming Virginian hospitality and an unspoiled countryside setting spread out across 300 instagrammable acres in quaint Fauquier County. So it's no wonder Washingtonian declared us "The Most Romantic Ceremony Site We Have Ever Seen."
You and your guests will dine on food that's not just pasture-to-plate, but harvested directly from our own farm so every bite crackles with flavor (and everyone raves about your reception on social media). Overnight guests get pampered in well-appointed accommodations at one of the notable Historic Hotels of America. And our dedicated events team ensures everything runs smoothly—from your heart-fluttering walk up the aisle to the very last dance of the night.
A truly unique Virginia wedding venue, Airlie brings you a variety of spaces that can transform wedding inspiration boards into big day realities—whether your personal taste is rustic, vintage, bohemian, sophisticated or a style that’s indefinably your own. All spaces—both indoors and out—boast Airlie’s backdrop of Virginia’s magnificent countryside.
Please note: Airlie can accommodate a maximum of 180 guests.

The Airlie wedding experience was great for us, our families and all our guests. People have continued to compliment us on the experience that they had at Airlie! As the couple getting married, we were happy every step of the way.
Shiloh was our onsite coordinator and she was AMAZING. She answered every question and email quickly and thoroughly. Shiloh was exactly the person I would want helping me if I had to do it all again. I really can't say enough nice things about her.
As for Airlie, it was exactly the venue we hoped for. We wanted an outdoor venue, but didn't want a tent; a place where guests could stay on-site, and amazing views.
The grounds are gorgeous and the bikes available all over the property were a guest favorite. My family rented the Groom's cottage and my husband's rented the Lakeside Cottage. Both were perfectly homey and very comfortable. The guests were excited that it wasn't just a hotel but instead it felt like a vacation.
As for the food, multiple guests told us it was the best wedding food that they had ever had. They were accommodating of my dietary restrictions and every guest had a meal they were happy with. The buffet was the way to go. We are a family of foodies to we were more than happy.
The staff were also so impressive. My sister is a sommelier and service manager at a well-known New York restaurant and she was impressed by the staff, which is saying a lot.
The Pavilion which is where we had the reception was stunning. With the accordion glass doors open all the way around and the large wrap-around porch it was a great way for guests to enjoy either inside or outside without being too far away.
Our rehearsal was also on-site at the Smokehouse Lodge and it was beautiful. It started the weekend off in the best way. Everyone relaxed fire-side and playing lawn games. Also the food was SO GOOD.
We would recommend Airlie to everyone who asks and we can't wait to stay here every year for our anniversary.

Airlie is SUCH a beautiful property and totally a hidden gem in the beautiful scenic area of Virginia! The spaces they have are akin to something you'd find in an english garden overseas and the manor and rooms are like the high end resorts you'd find in Charlottesville or Nantucket! Quaid was so helpful every step of the way in ensuring the wedding was smooth and flawless from start to finish. Couldn't ask for a better venue, team or location!!!

Perfect spot for a weekend wedding fest
A perfect spot for the entire weekend. It was a destination wedding an hour from DC, what could be better? Great rehearsal dinner at the Smoke House, casual and fun, the next day bride and groom lunches and prep while guests and some of the bridal party rode bikes, did some skeet shooting, played tennis and wandered the grounds. So much fun. Had sodas and beer in upper garden with yard games set up (partially to encourage guests to arrive early and not get hung up with Route 66 traffic) Ceremony in lower garden then a wonderful reception, dancing, dinner and amazing apple pie with ice cream for dessert. Brunch the next day was super. Food was great, service perfect. Guests really enjoyed the location, grounds, food and getting away from the city. Easy accessibility from Dulles for out of town guests. Can't think of anything negative to say.
Airlie Price Rates
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.
