Facilities and Capacity

Camellia Gardens offers a variety of indoor and outdoor event spaces for all celebrations.

Another outdoor option, the Terrace, features roses, evergreen shrubs, and leafy trees. This area is adorned with white pillars, a copper-topped cupola, and hanging market lights and is perfect for a cocktail hour and dancing the night away. Up to 150 guests can share your celebration here, and if additional seating is desired the adjacent lawn can be used. The Arbor provides an intimate setting and is bordered by walls of fragrant tea-olive shrubs and rose bushes. This event space’s roof will ensure that you and your guests are comfortable no matter the weather. If you’d like to dine and dance inside, the Barn is available. Originally a horse stable, this renovated space now serves as a reception hall. It features chandeliers, a lounge for wedding parties, and a covered patio. The Garden Pergola is a space that is located inside a garden where the trees and shrubs create a lush intimate space for a ceremony. The wedding Tent will accommodate 150 guests for a formal dinner event. The venue’s event spaces can also be used for any pre-nuptial celebrations, such as engagement parties, wedding showers, and rehearsal dinners.

Services Offered

The venue’s experienced, helpful team offers a recommended vendor list to ensure that your special day runs as smoothly as possible. They can provide chandelier lighting under the Tent and market lights on the Terrace. Parking on site is available for your guests and golf cart transportation from the parking lot to the event spaces is provided so your elderly guests can enjoy the day.

    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's reply:

    Thank you, Courtney and Nick, for sharing your day with us at Camellia Gardens. It was such a joy to be able to get to know you and your families, to witness all that love, and to celebrate such an important day! Thanks for choosing our venue and for moving ahead with your great event despite COVID restrictions! What a year! Very best wishes for a long and happy marriage and for an amazing life together!
