Airlie Gardens
Wilmington, NC
24 x 30 in. | Oil on Canvas

Airlie Gardens is one of our absolute favorite places in Wilmington, NC and just so happens to also be a spectacular wedding venue!  Courtney and Allen chose the gorgeous Pergola Garden for their ceremony location.  With the hanging moss and huge oak trees, guests were seated under umbrellas and watched as Courtney walked down the breathtaking path towards her groom!  Her ball gown was absolutely perfect for their garden wedding and the bridesmaids looked fabulous in their plum dresses.  Ben had a perfect set up location for their live wedding painting, positioned with a perfect view down the aisle!  After Courtney and Allen said, I DO, the reception continued at downtown Wilmington’s 128 South.  Ben also transitioned his easel to the reception and continued their live wedding painting!  We are so excited to share their oh-so-dreamy finished wedding painting!
