This Wedding at The Merrimon-Wynne House Was Classic With a Modern Twist

Classic Wedding at North Raleigh United Methodist Church with a Merrimon-Wynne Reception

Becca and Pat wanted to have a traditional wedding but not a dated affair. With the assistance of expert Raleigh wedding planner, A Southern Soiree, the couple had whites, peaches, greens and golds splashed all around the ceremony, decor and wedding party attire. Their vision of tradition mixed with modern perfectly came together for this North Raleigh United Methodist Church ceremony followed by a Merrimon-Wynne wedding reception in downtown Raleigh.

In the heart of downtown Raleigh, you will find a magically Southern home in the midst of the charming historic Oakwood neighborhood. The Merrimon-Wynne House is one of the most sought-after wedding venues in North Carolina.

Built in the late 1800s, The Merrimon-Wynne House has been restored to become a perfect venue for a modern bride while keeping the charm of its history well intact. Every room of the house, as well as the perfectly groomed lawns, is simply picturesque for your wedding ceremony, reception and wedding portraits.

Donut Wall Display at Merrimon-Wynne Wedding

Since Becca and Pat had begun dating, Pat was never able to pass a donut shop without asking if anyone wants a “quick donut?” In an effort to make the reception a little more personal, Becca and her dad built a donut wall as a surprise for Pat, complete with “Quick Donut?” painted on top and covered in Duck Donuts with various custom icings to match the colors of the wedding.
