  • The Merrimon-Wynne is a dream venue - even in the midst of a pandemic. We locked in our date just a few days after our engagement in December 2019. When it was clear we needed to push our wedding date from June to a later date, Kaila (and our amazing planner, Amanda Blair by Design) was on top of it. She presented us with our options, and we ultimately locked in August 7th. At the time, we were hopeful that our original plan of having a ceremony and reception would still be able to take place. In the weeks leading up to August 7th, we were at the mercy of the Governor's mandates, and ended up keeping the date for our ceremony (the best part!!) and pushing our reception to June 6, 2021. The Merrimon-Wynne was extremely communicative and gracious as our plans shifted again. I think the most important thing to convey about our experience with the Merrimon-Wynne though was that our wedding day could not have gone any smoother or been any more perfect.

  • The Merrimon-Wynne House was a magical place for our daughter's wedding! My daughter and I visited every highly recommended wedding venue in North Carolina over several days and the Merrimon-Wynne House was the last one we saw. We knew it was the perfect place the moment we drove up. It is a historic home (so it makes you feel transported to another time) but it is light and airy with all the white wood and glass (so it doesn't feel old or stuffy). The team led by Amy Yarborough worked with us throughout the planning process and Sara Lane was very attentive the day of the wedding. The bridal suite is so beautiful and the perfect place for the bridal party to get ready --- and was set up with mimosas for the bridal party. The groomsmen had their own space with a refrigerator full of refreshments. The Main House was an ideal place for cocktail hour and our guests loved playing corn hole on the lawn before the reception (Father Alfonse beat everyone!). The Carriage House was the mos...

  • From the minute we found MW online, we felt like it was such a special and unique place. After touring, we could envision ourselves there so perfectly, so we snagged a date quickly (definitely necessary at this venue!). Communication from Kaila and Lucy was really great throughout the process, and we loved that MW included fun lounge sets, lawn games, and tables/chairs in our rental! On the day of the wedding, Lucy and her assistants were so wonderful to work with, and they made sure everything went incredibly smoothly! It was a perfect day at the most beautiful venue! We are so grateful to the MW team for their kindness and support! The only drawback of booking here for us was that all alcohol must be bought through MW, and we found the pricing on that to be very high. For us, it was worth it to be at MW, but it is a good thing to note when looking at venues!

  • The Merrimon-Wynne House is a dream venue. My husband and I got married here in June. We live in California and had to plan our wedding not only living in a different state but during the pandemic. We worked with Sasha who was absolutely AMAZING. She walked us through each step of the way and was there for every question we had. She informed us of every update in regards to Covid and the changes that would effect our big day. On the day of our wedding, it rained (we were told it's good luck). Sasha spent all morning setting up our seating arrangement inside, moving it to outside when it stopped raining and having to move it back in when the rain started again. She worked so hard and so graciously all morning. After our ceremony it stopped raining and we were able to take pictures both inside and outside of the venue. Pictures here are a DREAM. The Merrimon-Wynne House is such a beautiful venue - rain or shine! My husband and I cannot express just how much we love The Merrimon-Wynne Hou... Read more

  • This is the most beautiful, whimsical and elegant venue. It was everything I wanted and more. From the white walls, to the crystal chandeliers, to the shabby chic bridal suite, MWH is a one-stop-shop with each space more beautiful than the next. Kaila was so warm and welcoming from the second I stepped on the property. I do have to give a HUGE shout-out to Lucy, who was my venue contact. She went above and beyond for me and my wedding. I probably asked her to send me 50 different bar package proposals and she always responded right away with the most cheerful disposition. She even handwrote the last few sentences of my vows because her printer wouldn't print it all on the card she made for me for the ceremony. She is literally the best!!! My family and bridal party LOVED her and we made her an honorary bridesmaid! Lol. In all seriousness, there isn't any other place in the world that I would've wanted to say, "I Do" in. Thank you Lucy and MWH for the everlasting memories! We miss you ... Read more

  • Ever since I moved to Raleigh for college and first caught a glimpse of the MW House, it was my only option, my plan A-Z. The staff at MW are a dream to work with and will do whatever it takes to make your day everything you wanted it to be. Abby was always responsive to every little question and made planning a breeze.

  • Getting married is supposed to be this magical fairy tale of a time for everyone, what they don’t tell you is how hard and how much work it is to make a vision come to life. There were two decisions that didn’t take any thought – first was this venue. A girlfriend of mine used to bar tend at the MW House and I saw a wedding on her snapchat, messaged her immediately and the rest was history – I knew before I was even engaged that that was where I was getting married. Fast forward to signing the dotted line. The MW House is like THE wedding venue in Raleigh, so they’re booked crazy far in advance, but they were flexible with me in that they give you a bit of time to “hold” a date before you cough over the funds. That’s huge in making sure any other “must have” vendors or guests/friends/family can make that date work. Because of this, I got a date I was super happy with and just has a nice ring to it. 11.23.19. The best day ever. Fast forward again to planning... Read more

  • We had our dream wedding planned and ready to go. When Coronavirus necessitated stay-at-home orders for our state, we had to scramble to change our wedding plans. We contacted the staff at Merrimon-Wynne to let them know we would have to reschedule our originally planned wedding. They made it seamlessly and incredibly easy to change our date where all of our guests could attend. When we approached them with a request to have a small and simple ceremony to honor our original date, they were quick to say "YES!!" Thank you to Kaila, Haleigh, and the entire Merrion-Wynne House staff for everything you have done and continue to do! They went above and beyond to make this moment so special for us! While our wedding didn't look the way we had originally planned, it was an incredibly intimate and memorable day! They even went so far as to provide a champagne toast and a romantic lunch for us to celebrate our special day! If you are looking for a venue to have 2 or 200 people attend you... Read more

  • The Merrimon-Wynne was the only venue we wanted for our wedding day! We had admired it long before we were planning our wedding, and we knew it was the perfect place for our big day. The team at MW are a dream to work with! They were so helpful and responsive throughout the entire planning process. The property itself is jaw dropping and kept so beautiful. We loved the fact that we get to use the venue all day and could get ready with our wedding party there. I can't imagine having done our wedding anywhere else.

  • The Merrimon Wynne House was absolutely incredible. Not only was the space gorgeous, the staff was just lovely. They were always so helpful and quick to respond. Kaila Anderson was particularly wonderful to us. She served as our Merrimon Wynne contact and our day of coordinator and we honestly couldn’t have done the day without her! Her expertise, willingness to help, and kindness made our day perfect all around. Merrimon Wynne and Kaila made our day so special - we can’t thank them enough!

  • We originally chose the Merrimon Wynne as our wedding venue because it is absolutely stunning. I loved how light, airy, and clean the entire venue looks. I was particularly drawn to the "getting ready rooms" for the bride and groom. Little did I know, the Merrimon Wynne is not only beautiful but their staff is amazing as well. Abby was our coordinator and she was very flexible making sure our day was perfect. She worked with us to get us the bar menu we wanted, the decor we wanted, etc. Between Abby and our wedding planner everything was taken care of all day long. We never had to worry about anything. Abby even made sure we had a fresh drink in our hands at all times. It's really that attention to detail that makes the difference. I highly recommend the Merrimon Wynne. You definitely won't regret it!

  • My wedding day was a fairytale. Everything was perfect thanks to my amazing team at Merrimon-Wynne - I highly recommend Kaila Anderson as a wedding planner, she was phenomenal!!! This venue has everything to offer and made exquisite backdrop for all of our photos. Our guests raved about Merrimon-Wynne and how breathtaking everything was. We had 150 guests, it rained so we were inside the carriage house for the ceremony and reception after a flip. It’s so worth it! I cannot get over how dreamy it was.

  • The Merrimon-Wynne House is an unbelievably beautiful venue. We literally had the perfect day and they were so helpful with everything! Abby (our venue coordinator) was so sweet and great to work with. Everything went so smooth. I really can't say enough good things about this venue! If you're looking to save money, this is not the place as you have to do the bar through them and it is very expensive (they charge per person per hour with a high minimum) and you also have to use a rental company for everything (down to forks, plates, etc.). However, I would not dissuade a bride from choosing this venue because it is so fantastic. My one tip to new couples choosing the Merrimon-Wynne is to not rely on their recommended vendors list. Many of the amazing vendors we used were more reasonably priced than the photographers, videographers, cake, hair, and makeup vendors they recommend. Just a tip but overall was wonderful!

  • The Merrimon-Wynne House presents itself as an elegant venue that is cooperative, compassionate and supportive in its provision of location and services for wedding parties. It also touts on its website how they give back to the community to sponsor nonprofit fundraising events. Unfortunately, this is not the experience I have to share. I began planning my June 2020 wedding in the Fall of 2019. I selected and contracted with the Merrimon-Wynne House as the venue for up to 200 guests, despite its above market costs. At the time the Force Majeure clause in their contract was not concerning. I was extremely confident of the date chosen and did not foresee any familial reasons why the date would need to be moved or cancelled. THEN the COVID 19 pandemic hit and the world as we knew it change completely. The opportunity to hold a June wedding celebration in an entertainment venue with any more than 25 people in attendance, inclusive of service personnel was legally forbidden. ... Read more
