Endless congratulations to Ali and Trent on their wedding day – and more importantly, on their new marriage! Ali and Trent were married at the Merrimon Wynne House in downtown Raleigh this summer on a beautiful, warm day as their loved ones gathered from near and far to celebrate these two! Celebrating Ali and Trent is easy – they are such a fun, lovable, laid-back couple, and you can tell just how loved they are by the sheer excitement and happiness that overflowed on their wedding day. I loved getting to know these two and their wonderful family and friends, and it was an honor to be a part of their wedding and to bring it all to life for them!
From the incredibly sentimental moments throughout the day (getting ready with the girls, Ali’s first look with her precious dad, the ceremony, the first dances, and the toasts!) to having their sweet pup Tank there to the stunning color palette (dusty blue, navy, blush, and rose gold perfection!) to the beautiful umbrellas on the lawn to their uber fun wedding party to their ice cream truck… it was the most magical, fun day for a truly remarkable, sweet couple!
Thank you so much for entrusting your wedding day to me, Ali and Trent! I loved getting to know you two so much, and wishing y’all a lifetime of love, laughter, and joy!! A million congratulations to the wonderful newlyweds.
As always, it takes a village to bring such a seamless, stunning, joyful wedding day to life, and I’m so grateful for the opportunity to work alongside some of my very favorite industry partners!

Featured on Magnolia Rouge today is the romantic, organic, joy-filled, and absolutely beautiful wedding of Alexia + Corey! We are utterly ecstatic to see this incredible day shared on the front page of Magnolia Rouge (after waiting for a whole year for it to be published!), and it was a deep honor to work alongside a true dream team of wildly talented vendors to bring such a magical wedding day to life for the sweetest and most stylish couple! I’m unbelivably excited and really honored that this wedding that Stephanie Shaul Events planned, designed, and styled last June is on Magnolia Rouge, one of my favorite wedding sites!!
Head on over to Magnolia Rouge for the full feature, captivating images, and marvelous stories from Alexia and Corey’s summertime wedding — you definitely won’t want to miss this!
You can also read their wedding story and some of my favorite moments and details from the day on A+C’s wedding blog post here on my blog, if you’d like even more images, stories, and details (and a few behind the scenes moments)!
There’s nothing better than having a front row seat to such beautiful love stories and witnessing such joyful starts to marriages, and it’s an honor I don’t take for granted! There was so much beautiful, candid emotion throughout Corey and Alexia’s wedding day, and it was so touching and heartfelt in every way. Congrats, you two!!
Endless thanks to a complete dream team of vendors (many of whom we used at our own wedding!) who were utterly phenomenal! I say it all the time, but it definitely takes a village to bring a wedding day to life with such beauty, ease, and seamlessness, and I am grateful for mine!
