Bethany and Geoff’s Merrimon Wynne Wedding!

We are excited to share this beautiful wedding with you! Bethany and Geoff said “I Do” this past July at the gorgeous Merrimon-Wynne house in Downtown Raleigh. During our initial meeting, we learned that Bethany and Geoff were in attendance at a past wedding we had planned for one of their friends, Blair and Ross. They told us a lot of the same people would be at theirs and we just knew that their wedding was going to be every bit as much fun as Blair and Ross’ big day. These Clemson-loving couples certainly do know how to throw a heck of a wedding, filled with lots of love, emotion, and of course tradition! Bethany and Geoff knew that hosting a wedding in the July heat was going to be risky, but that didn’t hold them back. We kicked off the wedding with some pre-ceremony cocktails inside the house until it was time to make our way to the ceremony out on the lawn. The lawn was beautifully decorated with a jaw-dropping wooden arbor covered in lush greenery and florals done by the talented Anna at Meristem Floral.
After the ceremony, guests were invited back in the house for more cocktails (yay!) and delicious hors d’oeuvres from Rocky Top. Dinner and dancing was held inside the Carriage House which was set with all whites, golds, and greenery to create a classic and timeless look. The Significant Others Band rocked out the entire night and kept everyone on their feet dancing! We even had some surprise guests who joined Bethany and Geoff on the dance floor. It was such an amazing day and we are so happy everyone had such a great time! Thank you Bethany and Geoff for letting us be part of such a wonderful time in your lives!
Melissa with Melissa Maureen Photography did an amazing job capturing all the wonderful moments of the day!

What an amazing keepsake! “To Nance – Pin + earring set given to me by Grandpa H in 1948. Thought you might like them. They may come back in style. Gram” — Bethany used this pin on her bouquet!
