History
Camellia Gardens was purchased in 1987, and their first renovation to their working farm was to build a lake that was to be their focal point. The owners then went on to build swings for the oak trees, a barn and pastures for their horses and thousands of beautiful plants. Since they had already hosted weddings, events and parties on their property throughout the years, they decided to share their Gardens, Barn, Arbor and Terrace with others.

    NC's Hidden Gem: MARILYN and Camellia Gardens!

    My new husband and I cannot say enough nice things about Camellia Gardens and about Marilyn!! Despite a nearly 2-year long wedding planning process (#thankscovid), there was never a doubt that Camellia Gardens was where we wanted to have our wedding. My then-fiance and I toured CG for the first time in January 2019 and, even after touring 11 other venues in the area, could not find a better setting or host that we felt confident would make our day happen the way we envisioned. None of them had the level of commitment to us as Marilyn was communicating she would be more than willing to give us. Our original date was set for April 2020, and we had multiple visits with Marilyn leading up to that point (April 2019 when she hosted a tent garden party for all of her couples and their families and May 2019 when our two sets of parents were in town and wanted a tour), and she had offered for our vendors to tour with her at their convenience. Marilyn always made sure the day was going to be about us. ENTER COVID!! We realized that we would need to reschedule our wedding in March 2020, and immediately reached out to Marilyn with the help of our coordinator Whitney (It's A Beautiful Life LLC). Marilyn worked with us from March all the way up until our new date in September, making sure that we were given as many options as possible, to have as much of our day as possible, given the pandemic. We ended up having an intimate celebration last weekend with close friends and family with the help of Marilyn and her wonderful staff, where they went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. Everything was picture perfect and immaculate for our day, and our guests said they had the best time. Marilyn had been supportive even to them, making sure everyone felt safe at all times. Did I mention that Marilyn also opened up the venue to us the evening before at no additional cost so that we could have a rehearsal and rehearsal dinner with our friends and family at a location MUCH safer than a restaurant would have been? Wow. We really cannot say enough good things about Marilyn and Camellia Gardens.

    Camellia Gardens is AMAZING!

    There’s so many things I could say about Camellia Gardens! First of all, the venue manager, Marilyn, is an absolute delight to work with! She is very responsive and professional! She takes great pride in this venue and for good reason! The venue is anything and everything you can look for in an outdoor and indoor venue! There are several options of locations on the grounds to hold your special day. Each wedding can truly be personalized! I had several people come up to me at the wedding and that contacted me after about how they can book with this venue! Just go visit the immaculate venue and it will speak for itself. This venue is the second place we looked at and we knew our search was over.
