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!)

With the launch of my brand-new website at stephanieshaul.com, the five year anniversary of launching SSE, and a slew of stunning 2018 wedding blogged last week (Lauren + Grant‘s, Alex + Graham‘s, and Alexia + Corey‘s!)… there’s no better time to CELEBRATE this with you!! I’m absolutely thrilled and oh so excited that I’m hosting a giveaway with all of you to celebrate five years of Stephanie Shaul Events! And, in true celebratory fashion, why stop at one giveaway? That’s right: I’m hosting five days of unbelievable giveaways to celebrate five years of business!! Cue the confetti, friends! There’s no better way to thank all of you for your support, love, and encouragement over the years.

Each of the five giveaway days (Monday – Friday of this week, over on my Instagram) will focus on one of the five “pillars” of the Stephanie Shaul Events brand: weddings, marriage, home, faith, and serving others + learning.

I truly cannot wait to share all of the meaningful, special goodies I’m gifting and giving away throughout the week! You can see DAY ONE: WEDDINGS here, and you still have several days to enter!!

That’s right! One very lucky winner (chosen next Monday, January 28th) will receive several of my very favorite “marriage” related items from today’s giveaway:

  • The Meaning of Marriage book by Tim and Kathy Keller (our favorite marriage book, and I think everyone should read it: single, dating, engaged, newlyweds, those married fifty years… it’s that good!)
  •  $50 to Vita Vite for a date night (our favorite local wine bar + art gallery)
  • one date night to The Cupcake Shoppe (where our wedding cake was from!)

Hop on over to the Stephanie Shaul Events Instagram for all the details and to enter this MARRIAGE giveaway! Even if you’re not a bride-to-be or married, chances are you can use this for a best fried date or gift it to anyone!
