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.

Five stars from Airlie's first couple after reopening from the pandemic shut down
My husband and I were originally going to get married in May at Airlie, but due to COVID, we moved it to August and due to Virginia being open for events up to 250 we were on the hook for the wedding in August, unable to move it again. A couple of months ago when I thought about writing this review, I was planning on having some words to say because we went through a lot of different Airlie coordinators from booking in January of 2019 to moving our wedding in March of 2020 and the communication during that time was not always the greatest. My impression completely changed over the past few months.
No one was prepared to navigating planning a wedding during a global pandemic, so naturally there were some bumps in the road and while we had wanted to move our wedding again, we knew that decision was up to Virginia and it was what it was. All we could do was reduce our guest count and put in as many safety precautions as possible for the day (we were a very pro-mask-as all people should be-wedding). Airlie ended up being incredibly cautious and responsive to our extra precautions we wanted in place. Not only is it already such a beautiful, predominantly outdoors venue, they let us reduce our guest count in June (including getting money back), put sanitizer stations all over the grounds, food guards by the food, created a seating plan to ensure those not of the same household were seated six feet apart, enforced wearing masks indoors and when not 6 feet apart, and closed the grounds so that we were the only guests on site. Lydia, our coordinator, could not have been more empathetic and helpful and we genuinely felt supported by all the Airlie staff we worked with in the weeks leading up to the wedding. They even helped us problem solve when the bulk of our desserts had to be canceled the night before the wedding due to a possible COVID exposure. Airlie's chef ended up adding in a ton more desserts last minute at no extra cost (since we had paid for more people than were actually attending at that point). We had the most beautiful, COVID-compliant wedding and felt incredibly special all weekend. We are also happy to say that all our precautions were successful and not one person contracted COVID from our wedding (everyone monitored for symptoms and a lot of people got tested after just to be safe)! While I would never wish having to plan a wedding in the middle of a pandemic on anyone, I am so happy to say that Airlie helped us create the most healthy and beautiful day we could ask for!
***I've included some photos by our amazing photographer (VNess Photography) that hopefully capture some of the safety precautions and still show off how gorgeous the day was!Sent on 08/28/2020

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!!!Sent on 09/06/2018

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.
