Elegant Art Deco for the Merrimon Wynne Winter Showcase 2022

Design for MW Carriage House by Stephanie Shaul Events

The Merrimon Wynne House 2022 winter showcase is this Sunday, January 30th from 2:00 – 5:00pm, and I am so, so excited for this magical day to unfold! You can read all about the event here (and purchase tickets here – there’s just a few remaining!).

I’m so excited to share what I’ve dreamt up and designed for the carriage house at the Merrimon Wynne: an elegant & gilded art deco design brought to life through sophisticated, lush floral installations, the most incredible menu and unique stations, live bride and groom models in gorgeous gowns, lounges galore, a stunning showstopper of a cake, a champagne tower, bespoke signage and a custom-made art deco pattern incorporated in many memorable locations, two inspired styled tabletop designs, nods to interior design with statement lamps and vignettes, fun touches and surprises for all of the guests, and so much more with a true dream team of vendor friends. With gilded accents, a luxurious and refined palette, velvet touches, romantic draping and focal floral installations, a square bar and two inspired lounges, this design is elegant art deco with a modern twist – a little moody, sophisticated, layered, and romantic!


I’ve been busy this month designing and creating a gorgeous, unique, and fun design to bring to life alongside some truly spectacular local vendors — and let me just say, I couldn’t be more excited about this bespoke design I’ve dreamt up and the incredible talent I get to work alongside! I haven’t been this fired up about a custom design in a while, and it’s going to be phenomenal and so inspiring. There are three incredible vendors from each category (wedding planner and designer, caterer, florist, bakery, stationer, rentals, etc): one in the carriage house (where my team and I will be), one in the main house, and one on the lawn. It’s a chance to see the work of some of the best wedding vendors in Raleigh, and I’m honored to be included. Among many other vendors, I’m ecstatic to be working with Bea Morad, Ivy & Linen Design, Rocky Top Catering, Danielle James Photo, Party Reflections, Greenhouse Picker Sisters, Sugar Euphoria, Bunn DJ. Co, White of Raleigh, Ashley Mooney Hair & Makeup, Jillian Darville Art, Magnolia String Quartet, and more!


We’d absolutely love for you to join us this Sunday! All ticket proceeds will be donated to a local charity, and Stephanie Shaul Events is very proud and honored to be sponsoring this event. You should definitely come — future brides and grooms, current and past Merrimon Wynne couples and families, local vendors and friends… everyone! I would absolutely love to see/meet you and show you a beautifully, creatively transformed space at the most stunning venue in Raleigh (after all, it’s where we were married, too!).
