Dana and Ryan: A Contemporary Wedding at the Merrimon Wynne

I’m so excited to share Dana and Ryan’s wedding! From the crisp clean lines and geometric shapes to the organic and colorful flowers, it all was a reflection of their California vibe!

Dana and Ryan ended up with the prefect late summer day, warm temperatures with low humidity. A rarity in NC! Dana’s girls looked lovely in mix and match dresses while Ryan’s guys rocked the bright blue suits! As a special part to the day, Dana had her brother walk her down the aisle in honor of her father that had passed. After the touching ceremony guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the lawn with a seafood station of raw and steamed oysters, clams, and shrimp! Afterwards guests moved inside to the dinner where they were wowed by the hanging instillation over the head table created by Merristem Floral. And after dinner guests enjoyed Middle Eastern desserts brought all the way from Jordan by the bride’s family!

I hope you enjoy these images from Ally and Bobby Fine Art Photography and get inspired for your own big day!
