    The most perfect day ever!!!!

    Getting married at Merrimon Wynne House was a dream come true!

    I saw this house online way before we ever got engaged and remember taking a mental note to save for later... a few years later here we are! We looked at 10 venues in the area (I saved the Merrimon Wynne for last) The minute we pulled up and walked up the main stairs to the big double doors, we knew this was where we wanted to start "forever".

    We worked with Abby, who was a life savor! She has recently joined the MW team and I can't say enough good things about her. She is so sweet and friendly, and made sure we had a drink in our hand all night.. (how can we not love her for that!)

    The vendors on their preferred list were a dream to work with and honestly I still can't stop starring at our wedding photos because every backdrop is simply gorgeous!

    I do wish they had a BYOB option for their alcohol, but that is honestly my only critique which isn't even that big of a deal!

    I cannot say enough good things about this place! I was sold last year by the gorgeous chandeliers in the house and carriage house. The place is so beautiful and elegant and I can’t imagine having had our wedding anywhere else. We worked with Kaila, who was fantastic. She had our speciality drinks waiting for us as soon as we left the ceremony. She and the rest of the girls who worked there were so attentive while I was there getting ready as well as throughout the evening. The entire day was perfection.

    We have loved playing at The Merrimon-Wynne house since it opened! The grounds and inside the house are beautiful with so many places to get a great picture both inside and out. We can't wait to see the carriage house and work more with the staff there!

    The Merrimon-Wynne House is hands down the most beautiful wedding venue in downtown Raleigh and the rave reviews that it consistently receives from both wedding professionals as well as couples are absolutely spot on. From the moment you walk onto the grounds of this exquisitely restored historical Victorian home, you know that you are somewhere that truly is the definition of southern charm. From the manicured gardens to the bright yet romantic and naturally lit rooms, the Merrimon-Wynne is a joy to photograph. And working with Jodi, Kaila and their team of professionals is absolutely a pleasure. They are attentive, courteous and professional beyond compare, providing an experience for their couples that does not go unnoticed. I love working with the women of the Merrimon-Wynne and look forward to making photos there again!
