A Beautifully Simple Proposal Leads to a Charming Wedding

Downtown Raleigh Wedding at The Merrimon-Wynne House

Liz and Ronnie wanted a striking yet simplistic wedding that felt personal and warm to their guests. Knowing that they were going to get married in Raleigh, they immediately fell in love with The Merrimon-Wynne House. How could they not? The couple added touches of blush to their black, white and gold color scheme and with the help of bountiful garden inspired florals, and the skillful planning of Raleigh wedding planner, Gather Together, they were able to create their perfect charming wedding at The Merrimon-Wynne House.


Liz & Ronnie’s Love Story

Liz and Ronnie have a simple yet extremely beautiful proposal story. On a normal Saturday evening at home, Liz was trying on dresses to attend a friend’s wedding. After, in the words of the bride, “complaining to Ronnie about how I looked, he kept telling me how beautiful I was.” We already love this couple!

Liz asked Ronnie how many times he would repeat himself and his response was “for the rest of your life,” and got down on one knee. Liz shared that it was “sweet, simple and the perfect proposal for me!”
