Today at The Wilds we’re excited to share Hannah and Jayce’s early Autumn wedding which is bursting with Fall wedding inspiration!
Hannah and Jayce’s August wedding involved many of our favorite elements. Top-tier vendors? Check. Brown County trees starting to turn? Check. An enthusiastic couple, madly in love? Check. The result is an absolutely magical early Autumn wedding. If your vibe is classic with some lush boho details, this wedding is sure to inspire with its stunning layered elements, personal designs, and unique fashion.
At The Wilds, we’re big believers in starting your wedding day right. Surrounded by loved ones, Hannah and Jayce prepped for their wedding day in style with lots of fun. A first sneak of their chic getaway car, a classic Rolls Royce rented from Btown Classics, greeted them as they arrived to their wedding day.
Jayce and his groomsmen arrived to the venue ready to enjoy the day. They all donned matching brocade-style jackets with black pants and accessories. The look was ultra cool and evoked classic smoking jackets for an old Hollywood feel. With a whiskey toast at the bar before the first look, they had the groom ready to start his early Autumn wedding day.
Hannah’s prep in our luminous bridal suite was a joyful time. She and her closest girls got ready in coordinated custom monogrammed pajamas, making for excellent comfort and cute photo ops. Her mom buttoned her into her ethereal gown from Illusions Bridal. Boho glam was present in its modern lace appliqué and plunge neckline, but romantically balanced with flowing layers over the relaxed skirt with train.
Three first looks were on her priority list – one with her dad, one with her girls, then finally with her groom. These sweet emotional moments are what we’re all about hosting at The Wilds, and we love that Hannah dove in with all three.
Guests were greeted at the ceremony pavilion by modern welcome signs in peach hues by Creative In Bloom. Customized to match their bespoke invitation suite and event communications, the cohesive look came together and immediately set the tone for Hannah and Jayce’s guests. Florals by Laurilyn Floral Design framed the signs and the ceremony space, giving a delightful preview of the bridal party look to come. Blush colored blooms were accented by vibrant orange, burgundy, and mustard yellow. We love these high-voltage tones mixed with a calming tone to anchor this early Autumn wedding design.
Surrounded by the stunning and just starting to turn Brown County woods, Hannah and Jayce exchanged vows in an incredibly sweet ceremony. The happy tears and laughter were infectious, and we loved seeing the newlyweds soak it all in!
Hannah and Jayce’s romantic portraits with Bret and Brandie Photography were truly divine! Fall wedding inspiration can be found in each frame, whether in their classic portraits in the sprawling woods or taking advantage of their classic car. We love the variety that these two were able to enjoy by utilizing our setting to the fullest! Whether natural splendor or touches of city glam are your vibe, it can all be pulled off at The Wilds.
Guest entertainment for the cocktail hour and reception were high priorities for Hannah and Jayce. Lovers of cigars found a sleek cigar bar on our patio during cocktail hour and were able to join the groom there. With an indoor and outdoor bar, guests also enjoyed signature cocktails throughout the evening inspired by the couples’ dogs. Bar service by Upland Brewing Co. served up the Roxy (classic margarita on the rocks) and the Beau (blackberry whiskey lemonade), adorably shown in custom signage from Creative In Bloom.
The autumn palette transitioned indoors with stunning seating chart and guest tables. Plays on texture brought another hint of their modern boho vibe for a delightful reception setting.
With a slice into their painterly cake by Farmhouse Cakes, the reception party was officially off to a start! After a delicious dinner by First Class Catering, entertainment was provided by DJ Connection. To close out their early autumn wedding, Hannah and Jayce took one last dance together outside surrounded by friends with romantic shimmering sparklers. Thank you, Hannah and Jayce, for sharing your love story and beautiful event with us at The Wilds!
