Alistar & Drew Betz

April 2, 2016 – Pergola Ceremony & Oak Lawn Reception

Alistar & Drew kicked off our 2016 Spring wedding season in the sweetest way. On top of being one of the nicest couples we’ve had the pleasure of meeting, their ceremony and reception was so much fun to be a part of! And look how many tulips were in bloom! The freestanding, birch arbor used at the Pergola and built by the family was hand adorned with flowers by Alistar’s mother the day of the wedding. Alistar & Drew even had their ceremony musicians, local favorites -The Midatlantic Band, lead the way to the reception tent in a musical parade following the ceremony. We thought that was very cool and unique! We loved their lively first dance, the adorable cake topper and everything else about this night. We hope you enjoy some images they’ve shared with us! As always, vendors tagged at the bottom.

Kate + Marc Moughamer (Pt. 2)

Today we bring you more images of Kate & Marc Moughamer, one of our 2015 couples who dealt with Hurricane Joaquin’s aftermath. We are so happy these two were able to make-up all of their wedding pictures on a beautiful, sunny day. We love that indigosilver utilized unique areas within the gardens and we especially love the shot done on our Bradley Creek overlook!

October 10, 2015 – Oak Lawn Ceremony & Reception

Coming off Hurricane Joaquin, we just could not get the weather to cooperate during Kate & Marc’s wedding. However, the emotions captured by indigosilver show a great time was still had by all. Kate’s wedding guests kept the spirits high and literally cheered the entire bridal party on as they made their way down our makeshift aisle. The ladies at Kickstand Events did a great job turning the reception location into a ceremony site last minute. We also loved the idea of using metals in the bouquets. This was the last wedding of our 2015 season and it was the perfect example of how a professional team of vendors can unite to create a beautiful event… even in the rainiest of conditions.

We are looking forward to the indigosilver team coming back out later this month to re-shoot their wedding pictures. Stay tuned for more images!

Jessica + Chip Grawey

September 19, 2015 – Pergola Ceremony & Oak Lawn Reception

Wow! Could we be more obsessed over the images from Jessica and Chip’s big day? Melissa, of Melissa DeLorme Photography, doubled as both Maid of Honor and photographer in her sister, Jessica’s, wedding. Co-shooting with Libby McGowan Photography, both teams did a beautiful job capturing the love between Jessica & Chip, while also making the gardens truly shine in the background. We love that Jessica opted for a first look in our Spring Garden. We can’t get enough of those little moments when the groom first sees his bride. Overall, this was an absolutely stunning wedding with a beautiful bride and wonderful family. Airlie Gardens wishes you the best Jessica & Chip, and we look forward to working more with Melissa in the near future!

Erin + Jason – Winter Engagement

December 19, 2015 – Engagement Session

Have you ever wondered what the gardens look like during our late-Fall and Winter seasons? Check out these beautiful moments captured by indigosilver in mid-December. Our Enchanted Airlie decorations were up during this shoot. We love the way they captured the fallen camellia petals on our natural bridal walk. If you are looking for someone to shoot your own portrait session, we highly recommend Jeff and Lori. They do a wonderful job.

Ayla & Dan Dugan

September 26, 2015 – Pergola Ceremony & Oak Lawn Reception

Ayla & Dan had the most spectacular and intricate reception set-up we’ve seen. Their design, we believe, was based off of the painting “Starry Night” by Van Gogh. Every detail was thought out from the napkins on each table to the stunning menu board and flora design. Ayla came out to our Wine & Design event over the summer to paint the Airlie Oak tree and we were so happy to see she had displayed her painting during her reception – and let all of her guests sign it! This was such a fun idea. We did battle some rain with this wedding, but as you can see the bride came fully prepared with large, clear umbrellas that looked great in pictures. And we all know rain means good luck on your wedding day! A beautiful job done by everyone involved in this event.

Lucy Ann & Seth Laupus

September 5, 2015 – Pergola Ceremony

Lucy Ann & Seth’s wedding was one of our favorite designs of the year and served as the kick-off to our fall season. Her wedding date had sentimental value to her whole family, as it was her grandmother’s birthday. Lucy Ann’s vintage wedding dress, which was passed down by her grandmother, was one of the prettiest sights we’ve seen coming down our bridal walk. We adored her mismatch bridesmaid dresses and beautiful bouquets that added bright, pops of color. Kevin Millard did a wonderful job capturing Lucy Ann & Seth’s first moments as husband and wife and we are so excited to share these images with you today!

Jamie & Brad Bass

June 12, 2015 – Oak Lawn reception

You may recognize Jamie from the awesome Glo MedSpa commercial that airs on TV; maybe while you were watching the channel E! like I was (How cool!). She is one of the sweetest brides to come through our gardens here at Airlie and Ray Baca of Baca Photography did a great job capturing her kind spirit. Jamie had her ceremony up in stunning Asheville, NC, and her beautifully designed reception was thrown on our Oak Lawn a few days later. She was a joy to work with and we loved seeing her vision unfold. Wilmington Uplighting did a stunning custom floral chandelier for Jamie’s tent that everyone fell in love with and the event coordination by A Pop of Pretty was executed beautifully. We hope you had a blast at your dream reception and we wish you and Brad all of the best, Jamie!

Conrad & Stefanie Williams

June 6, 2015 – Pergola Ceremony, Oak Lawn Cocktail & Reception

Stefanie is probably one of the coolest brides I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Both style-wise and temperament (haha!). Seriously, she was cool as a cucumber at all times. We fell in love with her wedding dress which perfectly suited her casual, bohemian vibe. We also loved the use of lavender herbs as bridal bouquets and who doesn’t love peonies and a good flower crown? We fought the rain from the cocktail hour to the reception. At one point, I was sprinting to get a golf cart to save Stefanie from the rain and found her casually hanging out under the Magnolia leaves when I got back. Meanwhile, her entire bridal party was running for safety towards the tent! C’mon guys.. a little rain does you good! Needless to say, this group kept the party going during the downpour with awesome tunes provided by DJ Charles from Active DJ. Check out the amazing photo Chris Lang snapped in the rain during the reception. It was so much fun to see a bride embrace the rain and have so much fun just dancing in it! A wonderful team of vendors made this a special night and a beautiful event.

May 30, 2015 – Pergola Ceremony, Bradley Creek Cocktail & Oak Lawn Reception

This certainly was a party to remember! With 10 bridesmaids and 10 groomsmen, we knew we were in for a fun-filled night with this wedding. Jessi and Sam made a stunning bride and groom and the night went off without a hitch thanks to an exceptional team of vendors. Thank you Theo for the beautiful captures, as always. We can’t wait to see the footage from M2 Productions.
