We jumped at the chance to book our June wedding at The Wilds! We fell in love with the location, the views, and the venue. There is truly nothing like it in Indiana.

Our guests couldn't stop talking about how beautiful The Wilds was. Alison's responsiveness and support during planning was everything you can hope for in kindness and professionalism. Alison and Brian's vision for the Wilds is special. This is going to become one of those venues people book early just to secure the date.
