The Main House is the most popular space for cocktail hour. Often guests will flow from the wedding ceremony into the house and mingle throughout each of the rooms on the main level while sipping a cocktail and enjoying appetizers prior to the reception.
The Carriage House
The Carriage House is Merrimon-Wynne’s newest addition and can host up to 200 guests for a seated dinner and up to 250 guests for a mingling-style event. It is the perfect complement to the main house’s rich character and crisp neutral canvas. Chandeliers and crystal sconces carry throughout both spaces and accentuate the natural light that floods in during the day. The Carriage House is the perfect place for dinner, dancing and hosting a wonderful celebration!
The inside of the Carriage House is also great for couples who prefer to have an indoor ceremony. It can also serve as a quick and easy backup plan in the event of rain, heat or cold. The climate-controlled space gives you a crisp, clean backdrop for your ceremony with gorgeous chandeliers to line your aisle.
