Palm Beach Elegance for the Merrimon Wynne House Bridal Showcase

ABPhoto_MWOpenHouse-167

I’m over the moon ecstatic to share a few sneak peeks from the Merrimon Wynne summer bridal showcase that Stephanie Shaul Events had the opportunity to plan and design just the other day! You can read all about my design inspiration, palette, and vision here, and it’s one of the best feelings in the world to see it all brought to life and captured so exquisitely by Adelyn Boling! I am so proud of how each and every detail came to life for the event and for the couples and families who were able to attend, and I think it’s inspiring Palm Beach elegance at its finest.

From start to finish, it was incredible day filled with so much joy and beauty! Being able to plan and design the main house and the lawn for the Merrimon Wynne House bridal showcase was a total dream come true, and I’ve had the best time dreaming up so many bespoke, marvelous, and memorable details over the last couple months. I simply love what I get to do and the wonderful people I get to do it with! This old world Palm Beach elegance is brought to life in many ways but especially through the styled tabletop that I absolutely loved designing. With breezy island hints with an understated, glam sophistication, touches of rattan and relaxed stripes, juicy hues in the perfect late-summer palette, lush florals and colorful taper candles, gorgeous blue patterned plates, this design is vintage Palm Beach elegance in a fresh, polished, and fun way for brides today. What a fun, fun day meeting so many lovely people and working with an incredible team! I’m really grateful to each partner who contributed to the event and to the details of the day; they’re so passionate and talented at what they do.

Can you believe these are just a few sneak peeks?! I can’t stop scrolling through the gallery and audibly gasping at the sheer beauty, and we’re all so excited to share so much more!

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!)
