When choosing their wedding venue, Jessika and Nate knew that they needed the perfect combination of beautiful country scenery with classic elegance and all of the amenities in one location. They found their match in The Wilds, Bloomington’s five star venue in the heart of Brown County. With indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces surrounded by picturesque woods, these two love birds were smitten.
We are excited to share their country style wedding today on the blog to give you all of the ideas you need for a classic event with lots of charm. Enjoy this stunning event, beautifully captured by Kayla Boyll Photography.
A true Indianapolis meet cute brought this pair together. Jessika and Nate met at the Indy 500, and the rest is sweet history which the groom likes to call fate! For Jessika and Nate, lovers of the great outdoors and the Indiana countryside, The Wilds held all the charm and comfort they were looking for. Their country style wedding day started off with a classic flow and sweet anticipation as they waited to see one another down the aisle. Finishing touches for Nate were seen to by his mother, while Jessika enjoyed mimosas and lots of laughs with her bridesmaids in the bridal suite. A touching first look with her brothers was the final event before the ceremony began.
Classic and clean aesthetics greeted guests as they entered the ceremony pavilion. Welcoming benches under the covered pavilion led to a focal-point asymmetrical floral arrangement by Ironweed Flowers on the gazebo. Soft white blooms with delicate baby’s breath were framed with fresh greenery. Our chiffon drape brought an extra soft and romantic touch, with an unforgettable wooded backdrop.
For bride, Jessika, remembering her late father was a crucial part of the ceremony. Her brother filled in for him to walk her down the aisle, and another important attendant was present as well. Jessika’s childhood dog, Maggie, was a part of the bridal party. A gift from her father as a child, Maggie’s presence was a sweet comfort and joy to the bride. We were so happy to make this possible as an enthusiastically pet-friendly venue!
Jessika and Nate knew that they wanted to be present and enjoy their wedding day to the fullest. At The Wilds, we know that every part of the client experience builds to this. We are thrilled to hear back from couples who had their best day ever because of our five star venue experience! As this pair reflected on their day, they had this to share:
Our biggest priority for our day was having a stress free event. The Wilds staff went above and beyond and our day flew by without a hitch!
Their future together is truly reflected in their wedding day. We asked them what they see for themselves in the coming years as husband and wife:
We are looking forward to both finishing school, settling into careers, & hopefully buying ourselves a plot of land that looks similar to The Wilds! We loved the beautiful land & rolling hills with fields & woods in the background is definitely a dream!
The turnkey, ready-to-make-your-day-fabulous, reputation and customer experience of The Wilds was a big appeal for this couple. Our bride remarked on the beauty of the space. The existing aesthetics freed her to add some minimal decor and just let the rest of the venue shine. This nature-loving couple fell in love with the views of the Brown County woodlands outside every window of our reception hall. They knew their guests would fall in love as well, and this exceptional day was truly beautiful.
For Jessika, her decor also created one of her favorite wedding memories. Her bridesmaids and family members joined her in arranging the florals for the guest tables, and the quality time together was a true highlight for this bride. The result is a joyful and sweet reception feel with lots of country style charm with daisies and babies breath.
As the evening unfolded, Jessika and Nate really soaked in the love all around them. After guests left the pair a message on their guest book telephone, they enjoyed a fresh pasta bar provided by First Class Catering on the patio. All joined together for dances and heartfelt speeches. The couple reflected on these beautiful moments of the reception, remarking that they truly made their day special.
Jessika and Nate had the following kind words to say about their experience with us at The Wilds:
The Wilds staff was absolutely incredibly in the months leading up to our event & the day of our wedding! We are super tedious in our planning & they answered every question and concern we had with either a solution or plenty of options. We loved everything about our day & they made everything perfect!
