Love in Color

Romantic Rainbow Wedding Design by Folie à Deux Events

Erica Greenwold Reisen is the human embodiment of a rainbow. From her hair to her “totally rad” wedding planning and floral design company Folie à Deux Events, Erica uses color to express each of her client’s unique love stories. The French phrase, folie à deux by dictionary definition actually means “the sharing of delusional ideas by two people who are closely associated.” In August 2019, a team of NC wedding vendors led by Erica created a romantic rainbow wedding design at The Merrimon-Wynne House in downtown Raleigh. The vendor team practiced social distancing and wore masks due to COVID-19.

Arika Jordan Photography Captures the Beauty of The Merrimon-Wynne House

Known for its historic charm and minimalist beauty, The Merrimon-Wynne House was the perfect canvas for Erica’s vibrant vision. If Erica is a rainbow, then Arika Jordan Photography is a ray of sunshine! Her vibrant photography style perfectly complemented this photo shoot’s bold color scheme. Arika beautifully portrayed each model in film and digital photography as they traveled down the grand staircase, onto the front porch and across the lawn.

Bella Bridesmaids Dresses Brings Color

Real-life engaged couple and Instagram bloggers, Trevor Black and Camille Mauban played bride and groom in this imaginary wedding. Camille wore a classic sweetheart neckline ballgown and Trevor donned a crisp blue tux and bowtie. Yellow blossoms in the bride’s hair and groom’s boutonniere tied their wedding attire into one neat bow. Each bridesmaid looked lovely in mismatched blush bridesmaid dresses from Bella Bridesmaids. Once again, Erica’s floral arrangements pulled the entire wedding party’s look together with lavish, bright bouquets garnished by ribbon.

Southern Style with CE Rental and Sugar Euphoria

Shielded from the street by landscaping, The Merrimon-Wynne’s lawn is the perfect place to host an intimate outdoor wedding ceremony, reception or event. This styled shoot showcases sweet Southern style with patterned linens and fine china from CE Rental. Grey taper candles placed on crystal-clear candlesticks complement ghost chairs stationed at each table setting. The icing on top? A three-tier wedding cake painted in sunset hues by Sugar Euphoria.
