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!)

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!
