Classic with just a hint of pep was just the right wedding style for Kalynne and Nate’s wedding. Set during the Summer to Autumn transition in Indiana’s incomparable Brown County, the pair built a wedding day full of lush beauty punctuated by energetic pops of orange. See why couples from Indianapolis are placing The Wilds wedding venue on their top picks lists!

a surprising pop makes for a perfect celebration

Their day began with a giggle-filled girls preparation at The Wilds wedding venue, where dusty blue bridesmaids gowns in mismatched necklines were the perfectly romantic hue and the first place that their many “something blue” elements were at play. Kalynne was then zipped into her clean-lined and soft ball gown from The Wedding Studio in Greenwood, IN, and was helped into her stunning Badgley Mishka jeweled sandals by her maid of honor. A timeless bridal look was made complete by a classic up-do with soft makeup look by Stephanie Bennett Makeup.

Nate completed his outfitting upon arrival at The Wilds wedding venue, donning a clean cut navy blue jacket with bespoke initial stitching inside the lapel. The groomsmen all matched with a simple contrast of ties versus Nate’s bowtie, completing a sharp look for the gentlemen.
