October Wedding Inspiration and Photo Ideas for an Outdoor Ceremony

This ultra stylish Fall Wedding is full of inspiration for couples looking for a sleek and modern wedding style

Jordan and Andrew’s wedding is one of the first that we think of when we’re asked for October Wedding Inspiration. With a clean and minimal design that compliments our space perfectly, the jaw-dropping autumn foliage of our woodland-surrounded Indiana venue is set to shine. With exceptional style and beautiful photography by preferred vendor, Cat Satre, this is a must-see for lovers of fall weddings.

This couple knew they were meant to be together

Jordan and Andrew met while attending University of Indianapolis through mutual friends. After getting to know one another in those settings, they finally took the leap and started dating. The rest is beautiful history, with Andrew’s proposal coming during a photoshoot shortly after buying their first home together.

For their fall wedding, this bride and groom opted for a beautiful minimalistic design to allow the autumn colors to sing in our woodland-surrounded wedding venue. Bloomington is one of their favorite areas, so after failing to fall in love with their other options, the duo knew we were the venue for them upon their first private tour.

Their love-filled day began with a tranquil preparation time in our bridal suite before a lovely first look under our outdoor ceremony pavilion.

Outdoor October Wedding Ceremony Inspiration

A top priority for this couple was an unforgettable wedding ceremony. For their October Wedding, our surrounding woods at peak autumn color was the perfect backdrop. Their less-is-more aesthetic fit perfectly in our venue’s fresh and welcoming spaces. The pair exchanged their vows in our outdoor ceremony pavilion with guests comfortably seated on our matching benches.

This pair of best friends in love then looked fondly into their future together. With excitement for building their family and passing the years watching that family grow, they are truly most excited to do life together and we are so happy to have been a part of their adventure!

Autumn Bridal Party Inspiration

Fall foliage may have been in full swing, but this couple perfectly balanced the saturated colors with stunning and subdued bridal party outfitting. Jordan’s ladies wore elegant light sage green wrap dresses in a maxi length, looking completely elegant with their bouquets of white and green. The Groomsmen complimented Andrew’s look with matching light grey trousers, white shirts, green bowties, and caramel brown suspenders.

The collective bridal party popped perfectly in these creative Fall Wedding photos, captured in our endless forests and rolling prairie grass fields.

Adventurous homebodies, together forever.

Jordan and Andrew reflected on their wedding day that felt entirely true to them. Their Fall wedding was the perfect day for these self-proclaimed “adventurous homebodies.” Leaning into the comforts and care that we and our trusted vendors wrap into our events, the pair were able to soak in the day and celebrate the start of their forever.

A standout part of the process for this pair was our planning resources, helping them to arrive to their wedding day stress-free and able to focus on the love between and around them. From the bride:

A feature that stood out to us was the resources you send to couples, complete with pages and pages of charts on seating arrangements, deadlines, and more useful information that the couple may not think about when planning a wedding. We were continuously blown away at the attention to detail and dedication Alison and her team at The Wilds put in to helping us plan our special day! 

The pair celebrated together while Cat Satre captured these incredibly stunning portraits. If you are looking for October Wedding photo inspiration, look no further!

Our all-inclusive space makes the party planning easy

Jordan and Andrew fell in love with our modern farmhouse aesthetic and in-house decor options. For this fall couple, they took October Wedding Inspiration from these elements and our cozy, light-filled atmosphere. Our greenery mixed with cream votives and pillar candles adorned the guest tables, set with modern minimal table numbers and placecards. Pops of white florals were placed at key focal points to complete the fall wedding look. This couple leaned into DIY, with self-made signage, wooden centerpieces, and their own custom cakestand.

A joy-filled Fall Wedding reception

The rest of the magic from the day came from Jordan and Andrew themselves and the loved ones around them. Their incredible party, with all of the perfect music from DJ Connection, flowed inside our Reception hall and out onto our patio, romantically lit at twilight by our cafe lights. The evening closed out with a sweet sparkler photo-op, the perfectly luminous ending to a truly stunning wedding day.

Jordan reflected on the day after her wedding and had these kind words to share:

We truly cannot say enough about how amazing Alison and her team is at The Wilds. They go above and beyond just putting the couples’ mind at ease while planning and letting them enjoy this process without all of the stress.
