Ali and Shane: Merrimon-Wynne

You all - this wedding. Let me just tell you that it was literally the perfect day and one of the most gorgeous weddings! I am getting ahead of myself - I am just that excited! 

The whole team got the opportunity to meet Ali and her mom last fall. We chatted over coffee at Panera, lamented over being a teacher, and really hit it off. We met them early on in their planning process and they had not nailed down a venue. A few months later they had picked the gorgeous Merrimon-Wynne in downtown Raleigh. We met a few more times throughout the year to hammer out the details and every meeting was just so enjoyable. Ali and her mom were SO organized and every detail planned down to the T! 

They really wanted to get married in the church, but the church was not available on their wedding say, so they had a very private, intimate, family only ceremony hours before the rehearsal at the Merrimon-Wynne. Shane (the groom) was so smitten when I saw them on Friday and with big, happy, eyes - he said - "I'm married!" He was just so excited to be married to his bride. It kind of made my heart melt just a little :)

With out gushing any further - here is some snapshots from the very talented Anderson Shore of their gorgeous day!

Who says wedding shoes have to be uncomfortable?

Custom Bridesmaids wine glasses for getting ready

This dress was nothing short of amazing

They got all their Bridesmaids AND vendors custom bags. I tote mine around all the time! 

Love this!

The Jewelry

The boys had a fun little box to open filled with cigars and the makings for a jack and coke

Love this invite! It matched their decor perfectly.
