  • My daughter had her wedding reception at Camellia Gardens on May 19th. The weather had been uncertain and Marilyn, along with her staff, was patient with us on making the decision to move it inside. The day actually turned out beautiful and the guests had the flexibility to walk around the venue and be in the barn too. Nothing could have gone any better. The grounds were groomed in pristine condition, from the bank and sidewalk lined with blooming roses, to the large ferns that greeted you at the barn door, it was beautiful! Marilyn treated us in the most professional and personable manner that made you feel like your event was her best event ever. If you want a picture perfect event, then Camellia Gardens is the place.

    Dear Lisa, Thank you so much for your kind words. Having Amelia's reception at our barn was both a joy and a delight. She was such a beautiful bride, your family and guests were so wonderful, and we are so excited about seeing the photographs that will show off how beautifully you decorated our spaces for your dinner and party. As I said before, your table settings were certainly Pinterest-worthy! Please keep in touch and share those photos!

  • Camellia Gardens is a beautiful venue. Marilyn, the owner was an absolute joy to work with from the very first day that we toured the venue until the very last minute of our wedding. She will do everything within her power to make your wedding day spectacular! Take a tour, you will not be disappointed.

  • This Venue is GORGEOUS. There are so many possiblities. Marilyn the owner is wonderful. She has an amazing personality. My only suggestion is the Bridal and Groom suites need upgraded. When getting Married we all want those detail shots and backgrounds are everything. I recommend this venue 110% you will not regret it

    Alicia, Thank you so much for your kind words and for adding the wonderful photos of your beautiful wedding decorations. I especially loved your addition of the amazing swag hung by Ribald Events on our century-old oak tree. They were great to work with! I hope you will contact me directly to share your thoughts on upgrading our groom's lounge and our bride's cottage. As we have spent a great deal of time and energy on trying to provide the ideal spaces for our couples and their groomsmen and bridesmaids to get ready for the day, we would love to know where we have fallen short. Private restrooms, ceiling to floor mirrors, refrigerators, central air and heat, and places to sit to enjoy lunch are the amenities that we have thought about. Perhaps we have missed something. Please let me know your ideas! Thank you again for choosing Camellia Gardens for your wedding and reception venue. You were so classy to work with, and I am so glad that our paths crossed!

  • Camellia Gardens was the only venue we needed to visit. As soon as we saw the grand oak we fell in love and it was the perfect backdrop for our ceremony. It is so conveniently situated to have your entire ceremony and reception in one place, and each section of the gardens is as beautiful as it is functional for various purposes. This location really has everything you could ask for for an outdoor wedding, including a plan B for rain. Marilyn was great to work with, very responsive and helped us find great vendors all while remaining flexible on the things that mattered most to us. We loved being able to spend the first day of our marriage here and would recommend it without reservation.

  • We had my granddaughter’s 16th birthday party at Camellia Gardens. The facility was fantastic! The teenagers and adults all loved the atmosphere at the barn. The teenagers loved the outside area as much as the indoors. The space allowed so many options when setting up and decorating. Marilyn, the owner, was extremely attentive in making sure we had everything we needed to make the party a success. I would recommend this facility for any type party, especially weddings. The landscape is beautiful!!

  • I had the pleasure of working with Marilyn & the staff at Camellia Gardens for a client's September wedding. The property is absolutely gorgeous, & perfect for an intimate wedding or a large celebration. They have done an excellent job thinking through the logistics - from where the bride & her girls get ready to parking & everything in between. Marilyn was easy to work with in the weeks leading into the couple's big day & was great on the day of the wedding. I think if someone is looking for an outdoor spot away from all the hustle & bustle of Uptown Charlotte, this is the place!

  • The minute I saw Camellia Gardens, I fell in love! The location and the owner were incredible! The owner Marilyn is a gem, sweet and kind and so helpful!! Camellia Gardens' greenery and flowers are gorgeous and there are several beautiful locations to have a wedding ceremony, indoor and outdoor. We got married in front of the pergola and danced the night away under the beautiful twinkling lights!! Camellia gardens was a dream come true with its gorgeous sunsets, beautiful ceremony backdrops, and it's incredible staff!

    Erica, we all loved the way your beautiful flowers and decorations complimented our gardens and lawns. It was an amazing day, and it was such a joy to be part of the beginning of your married life with Taylor! Very best wishes!

  • I can't say enough about Camellia Gardens! It was the perfect venue for my son and now daughter-in-laws recent wedding! They have thought of everything. This is one of the only outdoor venues that also has an indoor option incase of uncooperating weather. The landscape is unsurpassed with beautiful flowering trees and plants to a gorgeous lake that can be a focal point of your wedding ceremony. They have the perfect place for your bridal party to get ready offering separate quarters for the bride/bridesmaids and the groom/groomsmen. This was the perfect place for a dream come true wedding for my son and daughter-in- law. Marilyn and the staff at Camellia Gardens were so amazing to work with and certainly know how to accommodate with your special day!

  • First of all, Camellia Gardens was perfect in every aspect. From the helpfulness and the incredible attention-to-detail of the amazing Marilyn to the breathtaking views to all the endless possibilities this venue has. I booked this venue in August 2016 (shortly after they opened as a wedding venue) for my August 19th, 2017 wedding. From the beginning Marilyn was very responsive, kind, and reassuring. She was very accommodating and truly helped my vision come to life. She went above and FAR beyond all expectations and I would say she became a good friend as well! My day was the definition of perfect and I couldn't have pictured it being anywhere else! I viewed 14 venues, and this one absolutely took the cake! I recommend this venue 120%!! Loved the people and the place! Cannot wait to share my professional photos to this page once they come back!

    Thanks to Angelia for an unexpectedly wonderful review! This wedding was so amazing as Angelia's family drew upon their Hawaiian heritage and gave all in attendance a taste of that beautiful land with authentic hula dancers, ukulele and drum music, and fire dancers. The guests were awed. I was too! Thanks again to Angelia and Adam for choosing us for their wedding venue!

  • Camellia Gardens is a beautiful venue with many options to choose from for having your ceremony and/or reception. We were given use of the entire property. Marilyn was a delight to work with and was very accommodating to our needs. The golf carts were a nice addition and her staff were very helpful. We had a fall evening wedding here and enjoyed the entire view. One thing that did upset me (I did not realize as I was getting ready and only found out after my wedding) was that while our wedding party was setting up our decorations, Marilyn was walking around and giving tours on-site to the public. Others in my wedding party were wondering why there were "unknown visitors" walking around and touching our decor. Even my coordinator was confused. I was not aware that this would happen as I had figured the entire day would have been be closed off for our private event. This was quite unprofessional and should have been addressed, but unfortunately, it wasn't. Other than this, ... Read more

    Juliette, thank you for your review of your experience on our property, and I am very disappointed and apologetic that your experience was not perfect. As ALL of our brides and grooms are people who have careers and work mostly Monday through Friday, oftentimes a Saturday is the only day they can come visit. Or sometimes parents come into town and a Saturday is the only time they can some see the venue selected by the couple. It is important to us that all of the people involved in the decision-making process have an opportunity to see all the spaces that they will be able to use on their own wedding day. I remember you and your fiancé even visited with your parents on a Saturday while a wedding was being set up. Our policy is that these Saturday tours are given only during the set-up phase of the event - long before the wedding party begins to assemble for photos, etc. We certainly were not aware nor would we ever have encouraged visitors to touch decorations, and we apologize for that. Again, thank you for your review, and know that we now make it explicitly clear to brides that tours will likely be occurring on their event date, so there will be no confusion about that.
