Airlie Gardens Tops The List for Stunning Bridal Photography - By Chris Lang Photography, Wilmington NC Wedding Photographer. Airlie Gardens, well known for it's Airlie Garden Weddings, is not only the perfect place for weddings, but also tops my list for places to photograph bridal sessions. Airlie Gardens provides such iconic visuals for brides wanting garden ambiance for their bridal pictures. Lena was not getting married at Airlie but loved the location and backdrop. Although we missed the Tulips and Azalea blooms, we found a field of yellow flowers that provided a spring time feel for her bridal pictures.
