The inspiration behind Merrimon-Wynne’s transformation into a wedding venue was the idea that the home’s rich history and beauty would serve as the perfect backdrop for an inviting, yet grand celebration. The mansion was built in 1876 and was restored to its original grandeur in 2014 for couples to experience its magic and share it with their guests on their wedding day.
Rental of the Merrimon-Wynne house in Raleigh, North Carolina means the property and facilities are exclusively yours for the entire day.
Guests can flow from your ceremony to The Main House, rich with southern charm. Filled with original flooring and fire place mantels, gorgeous chandeliers and sweeping porches, exploring the house is always a memorable experience for your guests. Complimentary lawn games will break the ice, and adding personal touches, like a signature drink to your bar or an interactive guest book, will leave a lasting impression. Continue the evening with dinner in the carriage house, which boasts grande chandeliers, exposed beams and rolling glass doors that open to the pergola and lawn. Or opt to dine al fresco or mingle under a canopy of century-old trees with luscious landscaping outlining the grounds. This outdoor setting becomes the perfect backdrop for all parts of your event and allows your guests to enjoy the beautiful North Carolina weather.
