Venue Interior

An Outdoor Venue With Exceptional Views

Our outdoor venue has exceptional views for a lawn wedding. Let Camellia Gardens in Monroe, NC, create the perfect day for the beginning of your life together.


The Pergola Lawn

The Pergola Lawn & The Lake

We have multiple sites for a lawn wedding, but we recommend the knoll overlooking the lake or the landscaped lawn with the pergola. The pergola lawn also makes an intimate space for a cocktail hour if one is included in your plan. Ceremony seating here accommodates up to 150 guests. Our pristine lake provides a magnificent backdrop for your ceremony, and with views of the lake from most sites on our property, it's sure to enhance your wedding day.

The Grand Oak

The shade of this century-old willow oak provides a cool canopy for your guests, and the lake provides an amazing backdrop for your vows. The grand oak is also an idyllic setting for sunset photos. Ceremony seating accommodates up to 150 guests.

Tent

Tent

Our beautiful wedding tent provides full coverage for all of your guests in case of rain. With over 3100 square feet, we have space for a seated dinner for 150, room for your dance floor, your DJ, and all the memories of your night under the stars! No need to worry about the weather spoiling your event!

The Arbor

With walls of fragrant tea olive shrubs and rose bushes, this intimate setting is perfect for a garden ceremony with up to 150 guests. We reserve this covered space as the ceremony backup in case a pop-up storm threatens your day. There is never a “bad weather” day at Camellia Gardens.

The Barn

The Barn

Originally the stable for our horses, our renovated barn is now an elegant reception hall with chandeliers, a caterer's staging area, and a covered patio.  The barn provides seating space for 80 guests inside and 50 outside on the patio. It includes the groom's lounge and restrooms. Whether rustic or elegant in style, your reception here will be distinctive.

The Terrace

Another open-air possibility, the terrace is a large reception area surrounded by roses, evergreen shrubs, and trees. An evening reception here is exquisite with the white pillars, copper-topped cupola, and hanging market lights that create a magical effect underneath the stars. Consider this space for your cocktail hour, have dinner in our tent, and then return to the terrace to dance the night away.

The Garden

The Garden

Our newest ceremony site is focused on a smaller pergola inside our main garden. Surrounded by evergreen and deciduous trees and shrubs, this intimate space will seat 100 guests in a shaded, lush, and serene setting that promises an extraordinary event with exquisite photo opportunities. Every event is special inside this hidden garden!
