2019 Merrimon Wynne Bridal Showcase

MW bridal show

I’m unbelievably excited to share: I will be planning + designing the main house at the Merrimon Wynne‘s 2019 bridal showcase!! What an honor it is to have been asked to plan and design this special event at my most favorite Raleigh venue (it’s where we got married, after all!).

I’ve been busy creating the most gorgeous, unique, 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 been dreaming up! 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 two incredible vendors from each category (wedding planner and designer, caterer, florist, bakery, etc): one in the main house (where my team and I will be) and one in the carriage house. 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 HL Catering, New Creations Flowers, Cottage Luxe, The Cupcake Shoppe, Ivy and Linen Design, Coastal Knot Bridal, and more!

We’d love for you to join us on Sunday, August 18th from 1-4pm at the Merrimon Wynne House for their summertime bridal showcase, and you can find ticket information here! All ticket proceeds will be donated to a local charity, and we’re very proud 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.

Here are some beautiful Merrimon Wynne weddings I’ve been fotunate enough to plan and design: Sarah and Jay’s wedding + Alexia and Corey’s wedding + Stephanie and Rob’s wedding (and so many more that I haven’t blogged yet!)

Swoon-worthy Wedding

I saw this wedding featured on Southern Weddings by Nancy Ray Photography (one of my favorite NC wedding photographers), and it is stunning! This wedding is right up my alley with its fabulous Southern style, gold glitter accents, romantic lighting, and Fearrington setting. I wanted to share this beautiful wedding with you, and I hope you feel inspired, too!

The above image is one of the best wedding photos I’ve ever seen – I believe I gasped out loud when I saw it for the first time! This couple looks so in love, of course, and every detail is perfection. I’m a little obsessed with the gold glitter linens!
