Today we are taking a look back at the first styled shoot ever produced at our luxurious rural wedding venue! Rooted in the values and quality that have become synonymous with our venue, this photo shoot is full of the hand-crafted luxury that we have continued to produce and host in the years since. Romantic, bold, and a little bit wild, we hope that you enjoy today’s styled shoot and find ideas for your own wedding!
The starting point for this styled shoot was as classic as can be – tuxedos with their black and white color palette were the anchor, and from there, with deep purple as an accent, each of our top Indiana vendors was allowed to run free. If you are looking for some classic wedding design with a wild twist, today’s styled shoot is for you!
Sweeping views of the Hills of Brown County and endless prairie grass fields made us fall in love with our countryside farm, and this incredible location serves as the perfect photoshoot backdrop for our couples. For your ceremony and portraits, be framed by the best views in Indiana for your luxury country wedding.
We are animal lovers at The Wilds, which is why we are happy to host your pets on your big day as well! Our pet-friendly wedding venue has had the pleasure of including many sweet pets, and few were as sweet as this day’s pony. Adorned in a floral bridle, we love this idea for celebrating each relationship in the family on your big day.
With such an incredible view, we love this simple ceremony arch floral design. An asymmetrical ribbon of baby’s breath created the perfect focal point for the ceremony on our patio space. More sweet clouds of these delicate blooms accented the aisle attached to chairs.
Thoughtful design is at the heart of each vendor on our preferred list.
First, florals by Artful Blooms took our brief of tuxedo classic with a wild side and created true magic. Romantic and unique arrangements were placed in every focal point of our reception great room. Jaw-dropping designs were found in a cascading arrangement on our bar to the most incredible tablescape and fireplace mantle installation. Classic romantic florals mixed with wildflowers and unique begonia leaf accents to bring a wedding look with a little edge.
Next, stunning communications designs by Creative In Bloom culminated in this wedding reception design. Bespoke event branding had its introduction in the invitation and wove into all other touchpoints for the big day. A modern acrylic bar sign makes for the perfect cocktail hour menu to welcome guests to the party. Matching place cards invite guests to their tables with sweet banner numbers. Ultra classic menus at each place setting keep the flow, with a custom illustration of our venue that ties back to the invitation.
Every detail was perfectly managed by the incomparable Ashley Weddings & Events. One of our favorites for a reason, her eye for refined style mixed with smooth logistical management, Morgan of Ashley Weddings & Events is a go-to wedding planner for us at The Wilds.
From our starting days to today, luxurious offerings have been at the fingertips of our couples at The Wilds. Nothing makes us happier than seeing each of our celebration spaces transformed for each unique couple and story.
With incredible teams like the vendors who made this styled shoot come together, your own wedding daydreams can become a reality. Whether your dream wedding is classic with a twist like this production or something entirely different, we’re excited to host your event with our 5-star wedding venue service standards.
