About Airlie

The Perfect Venue for Your Wedding

Airlie is a mansion with a banquet hall for couples who want to host their wedding in the greater Washington, D.C. area. At this venue couples will find a classic and country atmosphere with stone arches, grand staircases and magical garden spaces. This venue, in Northern Virginia, is approximately one hour outside of downtown Washington, D.C.

Facilities and Capacity
Up to 200 guests can join couples on their wedding day at Airlie. The venue, with over 300 acres of land, allows couples to create the perfect custom wedding day on the property. This means nearly endless options for ceremony sites among the trees, flowers, and natural beauty. Particularly popular for their beauty are three wedding locations. The Upper and Lower Formal Garden begins with the stone-arched doorway. In this garden, couples will find winding paths, fountains, a fairytale gazebo, and a sundial. Couples can exchange vows surrounded by hydrangea and other colorful blooms. The LFP Garden is both beautiful and operational, growing fruits, vegetables, and flowers. These meticulously cared for gardens include creative seating, busy honey bees, and healthy meals for guests. The Peterson Butterfly Garden is perfect for intimate wedding ceremonies. Under the shelter of an ornate gazebo, couples can wed surrounded by stone walls, flowering trees, plants, and even a meandering brook. For the reception, couples have three main choices. The Pavilion is an octagonal room with glass walls, offering panoramic views of the gardens that encompass the building. Even with the large windows, couples and guests will be comfortable year-round in this heated and air conditioned venue. The Pavilion’s veranda is perfect for overflow seating or a cocktail reception. The Airlie House features all the beauty of an old manor house, complete with a grand staircase, brass chandeliers, and decorative moldings. A lakeside event tent is also an option for couples who want a more natural and outdoorsy wedding reception on the water.

Services Offered
The staff at this venue helps couples with numerous services that make the big day less stressful when it arrives. This includes assistance with event planning and event rentals to ensure everything runs as smoothly as possible. The staff also helps with cleanup and setup on the wedding day, as well as offering lighting and sound services. Couples will find accommodations at this banquet hall as well. For guests, onsite parking and shuttle services make transportation to this venue simple.

My daughter got married three weeks ago at Airlie and it was absolutely wonderful. The venue is beautiful and the staff is wonderful. We booked about 15 months out and Shiloh worked with us the entire time answering any questions we had and professionally guiding us throughout the planning process. The event itself couldn’t have gone any better. The setup, food, service, and drinks were great. We booked with several of the vendors from Airlie’s preferred vendor list and were delighted with their services. Many of our out-of-town guests stayed on-site for the weekend and everyone was happy with their accommodations and spent a lot of their time visiting each other at Harry’s and loved the space and service.
I’m sincere in saying that if you want a truly top notch and beautiful venue – you should definitely book your event at Airlie. My special shout goes to Shiloh – You were wonderful and we will never forget your guidance and care you gave us!!!!

Airlie makes magic happen! Every detail of my daughter's wedding went just as she had dreamed despite the weather. My worries about the change to tenting the ceremony and the cocktails were completely taken care of by her team. The ceremony looked amazing; the lanterns, candles, and flowers, were even more magical under the tent with the rain. Our worries that the cocktails had to be moved to the Pavilion and the decorations would not be there were somehow magically taken care of. The reception was beyond beautiful; just gorgeous in every way. Guests raved about the food, the venue, the band. It was a beautiful evening.

Shiloh has a very demanding job, but is able to handle it with a smile and gracious calm. We were especially thankful for that as we were a bit frenzied by the rain. Our reluctance on the day of to take the weather’s lead was, I am sure not unusual for Shiloh, but I am grateful that she was direct and professional. She stated that the guests did not know our vision which was on-target and made all the difference in our thinking of alternating plans.

I can’t thank Shiloh enough for making this entire planning process a pleasure. Airlie should never ever lose Shiloh!

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.

Lisa Albert and the team at Airlie were phenomenal in helping make my clients wedding a success! There are not many venues out there that work collaboratively with a huge team of wedding professionals and to make sure that their client has nothing but wedding bliss from the initial interaction of contracting with Airlie, to wedding day, and after! Airlie does just that - they continue to care for their clients from beginning and beyond. And that is what I love about them. And the food is just phenomenal...your guests will want to crave for more. Airlie Center exudes romance at all levels...make this your location for your special day. Read why we think the Airlie Center is one of the most romantic and beautiful places to have a wedding. View the pictures from our beautiful day. http://wp.me/p2PVSK-g
