Dana + Ryan | The Merrimon-Wynne House, Raleigh, North Carolina

Dana and Ryan’s early fall wedding at Merrimon-Wynne House in Raleigh was overflowing with well thought details. Dana had a visions for colorful, playful blooms but still romantic and elegant. The blooms we chose to use were lisianthus, garden roses, dahlia, scabiosa, ranunculus, snowberry, hellebore, astrantia, tuberose, delphinium, anemone, and Queen Anne’s lace.

Floral installations certainly make a statement and Dana had a vision for multiple installations. For a ceremony backdrop, we used a birchwood arbor adorned with ombre colored flowers. We also decorated a hanging moss table that served as both the escort card display (with hand lettered marble tiles) and a cake display. Dana also had big ideas for the decor around the DJ booth. She was flying in her favorite DJ from California and wanted the DJ booth to stand out. We designed a backdrop for the DJ made with a boxwood wall base covered in dripping blooms and tropical foliage.

At the reception, the head table was lined with a mix of pillar and taper candles in glass hurricanes, garden inspired gold lanterns, bud vases with flowers, grasses and greenery, and re-purposed bridesmaid bouquets. To top it all off, we hung over a dozen floral and greenery filled lanterns above the table.

We loved all of the images that Ally and Bobby were able to capture of this gorgeous downtown Raleigh wedding.
