Calling all Iowa brides, this one’s for you! We’re sharing this chic wedding inspiration at The Merrill Hotel, and you’ll love the classic details. The Merrill is a newly renovated property on the Mississippi River in Muscatine, IA. With modern ballroom details and a gorgeous view, it’s the perfect venue for the classic meets modern bride!
The design team went with a palette of blush, white, and burgundy to complement the hotel decor. The floral designers at Hydrangea Bloom knocked it out of the park with this stunning ceremony structure! The bride wore a classic floral lace gown from Pure Bridal with a tiered skirt that fit her to a T! In addition, she wore sparkling accessories in her classic updo to highlight the detail on the bodice of the dress. The groom looked dapper in a slim fit gray suit from Generation Tux, paired with a dusty rose bowtie match.
Next, the table design by White Willow Events was all of our classic wedding dreams come true! A pale peach chiffon table runner added dimension to a white table, and tons of taper candles brought in all of the romantic feels. Pink, white, and burgundy centerpieces tied together with the entire color palette, while ghost chairs added a modern feel. Lastly, gold candleholders and flatware added a polished touch to the design.
Above all, one of the best parts of getting married at The Merrill is the view! The team took advantage of the hotel’s outdoor balcony off of the main ballroom with a perfect unobstructed view of the Mississippi River. For the bride with a smaller wedding guest list, we love the idea of having an outdoor ceremony overlooking the river. Finally, this wedding inspiration at The Merrill wouldn’t be complete without a cake! The classic white wedding cake was decked out with roses and served with champagne. Sounds like a dream, right!?
