Elaine & Matt’s Merrimon-Wynne Raleigh Wedding!

One thing we love about the Merrimon-Wynne is that you can transform this home into anything you want and make it yours. Elaine & Matt’s wedding was a true reflection of their sweet, romantic personalities, with a boho flair. Something that we thought was extra special was that E + M had signs with their favorite love song lyrics hanging on the ceremony chairs so that Elaine could read these sweet words as she walked down the aisle.

On top of simply working with this awesome couple, the entire design process was truly a pleasure. We got to be so creative and add some really amazing touches to accent this beautiful space. We were asked to do the florals, and what a fun project it was to do! There were pops of color everywhere; from her bridesmaids dresses, to the pillows on the rocking chairs. The hanging decor, though, was probably our favorite! From the glitter dipped feather strands to the lanterns floating amongst market lights and soft draping, guests were greeted with the most romantic of spaces.

While planning weddings we always get to know so much about our couples and their loved ones, but one of our favorite times we get to learn so much about the bride and groom is at the reception! Seeing the newlyweds celebrate their marriage and dance the night away always gets us! Elaine and Matt were so much fun and did not leave the dance floor the whole night! Nothing better than seeing ear to ear grins and a party that no one wants to end! When the night did come to an end, Elaine & Matt rode away in true Raleigh fashion – in a Rickshaw!
