To see these values in action which have led to hundreds of 5-star reviews, we invite you to enjoy the stunning wedding of Brittany and Corbin!
The beginning of our all inclusive wedding experience is our beautiful bridal suite. With an open and airy design with stunning styling stations and luxurious furnishings, our brides and their nearest and dearest are able to enjoy a chic start to the day.
For Brittany, this space was the location of a heartfelt time with her parents before the wedding. Her mother delicately placed her final touches before a heartwarming first look with her father. The trio were able to enjoy a tranquil time together before the ceremony, soaking in the sweetness of the day.
Brittany and Corbin have just about the sweetest meet-cute we have ever heard:
Our love story begins at Spencer Walmart. I saw him at the checkout line buying girly shampoo while he had hair longer than me. Come to find out he was washing it with that girly stuff so he could donate it and he wanted it to smell like a girl for that exact reason. (I felt horrible for being so judgmental) but after that night I fell in love with the silly redhead farmer.
The considerate nature of this couple continued in their wedding ceremony in our spacious outdoor ceremony pavilion. Between their wedding vows on the warm Summer day, they paused to pass out floral tributes to those missing loved ones that day. We love this heartfelt and personal act of support to their family and friends!
The biggest moment for this couple who is somewhat averse to PDA was their precious first kiss. In a spontaneous moment at the big culmination of the ceremony, Brittany shielded them both from the audience with her bouquet to make their first kiss a moment just between the two of them. This caused some giggles to erupt from the audience. Another sweet smooch was captured down the aisle, and then off went the newlyweds!
For this pair, celebrating with their loved ones without compromise was everything. They captured their nearest and dearest on our sweeping entry lawn under our iconic walnut tree grove. On-site beauty like this means that guests and bridal party members have no shortage of stunning photo ops, without the hassle of traveling between locations.
A perfectly romantic color palette of blue suits for the groom and groomsmen with mauve gowns for the bridesmaids completed this party. The bride and groom particularly loved the blue suiting – a favorite of Corbin to wear and a tone which allowed Brittany’s father to wear his Dress Blues, which was also an homage to her late grandmother who loved to see him wearing that suit.
Brittany and Corbin’s sweet pup, Lolly, even joined in on the beautiful day! The trio captured some fun family portraits, and a special children’s drink was crafted at the reception with a beautiful sign for “The Lolly Pop.” Following these group portraits, husband and wife took some time to soak it all in as a couple with Von Film capturing these beautiful moments in our boundless prairie grass fields.
The design of Brittany and Corbin’s wedding reception was an unforgettable experience. Crafted by Creative In Bloom, who specialize in all inclusive wedding design for their couples, every element of the reception visuals was styled to perfection.
We asked Christy of Creative In Bloom about this process to learn precisely what CIB manages when designing a wedding:
“Often, we completely brand and creative direct weddings. We start with save the dates, invitation suites and paper before the event. This sets the brand and kicks off a wonderful guide to the entire design of the wedding from color to texture and basic style. At this point, clients come in to the studio for a very fun design meeting. We choose decor elements like linens, napkins and chargers; all available to rent through Creative in Bloom or our partner rental companies. In addition to these elements, we typically creative direct meetings with the florist and cake artist. It’s this guidance that allows all of the vendors to get even more excited and creative with unique ideas for our clients!
Very often we sketch scenes or focal areas that we and the florist are collaborating on so our client can see the vision. Finally we do all of the details, paper, designer calligraphy signage, draping and staging of props. Our team sets up (decorates) just like your florist and we will come back at the end of the evening to strike down for our clients.”
Christy recommends her wedding design services to couples wanting a cohesive, memorable, and true-to-them wedding design coupled with flawless execution. Her all-encompassing service creates a smooth planning experience with a truly bespoke wedding design your guests won’t soon forget. In the words of the bride, “It was like walking into a dream when I arrived.”
We pride ourselves on letting our couples and their families sit back and relax on the wedding day. With an impeccable execution of setup and teardown of all of our beautiful in-house amenities, your loved ones won’t have to lift a finger and can stay in the moment of your celebration.
With our beautiful farmhouse tables staged and ready with entertainment already flowing, Brittany and Corbin made their entrance into the wedding reception. The pair enjoyed an evening bursting with laughter as they floated between the reception hall and our outdoor patio space as the sun set. Indoor and outdoor options permanently in place at our venue eased anxieties on the rainy days leading up to the wedding, but the sun won out for this couple in glorious fashion. It was an unforgettable evening, and a beautiful example of the luxurious experience that we create here at The Wilds wedding venue in Southern Indiana.
Brittany and Corbin closed out the party, enjoying one last dance, just the two of them, in the great room of the reception hall. We wish this pair all of the joy and love in the world, and look back to their wedding day with so much happiness!
Brittany had the following kind words to say about their experience at The Wilds:
“I can’t say enough great things about The Wilds. I was a very nervous bride, I worried about it all. The day before I was a mess. The Wilds team talked me through it and reassured me that my day was going to be amazing. When I walked into the wedding venue it was like a dream. The decorations were perfect. I wouldn’t have had a perfect wedding if it weren’t for the details that The Wilds puts into their venue.
From the online wedding planner to the meetings and the rental packages, they have it all. I didn’t have my family staying after the night cleaning up because The Wilds team did it. Overall I don’t regret a single thing for my wedding day. It was truly a perfect day.”
