To make their Autumn wedding a reality, Dee and Jake put their faith in top Indiana wedding vendors to bring all the details together.
For Dee and Jake, ease and celebrating the natural splendor of their Brown County wedding location were top priorities. Leaning on the best vendors in Southern Indiana helped to bring their dream day about, and we are thrilled to share the details with you today on the blog! From taking advantage of our versatile venue, to finding their top Indiana wedding vendors through our Vendor Fair, we loved being a part of making this beautiful wedding day easy. We hope that you enjoy this stunning Autumn wedding at The Wilds.
Relaxed vibes after a long wait
Music brought Physicians Assistant Dee and Marine Corp. veteran Jake together. Dee made the first move at an Eli Young Band concert, and the rest is history. After a sunset proposal in Florida with a few loved ones attending, wedding planning began as Jake left for his final deployment.
Dee and her matron of honor attended one of our Spring Vendor Fairs at The Wilds where we gather top Indiana wedding vendors together in one place. At the event, she met photographer Anna Clark and For the Beauty Floral. With the opportunity to chat about their plans for the wedding day, these two key visual elements were set.
Inspired by the colors of Autumn, a vibrant palette of oranges with burgundy and contrasting pops of white was easily settled on. Both lovers of the outdoors, Dee and Jake leaned into the versatile offerings of their wedding venue for a relaxed start to the day prior to seeing one another at the ceremony.
Laughter-filled ceremony made beautiful by Indiana’s best wedding vendors
Dear friends of the couple made this ceremony extra special. For their officiant, they chose one of their closest friends to help them exchange vows. And for the procession, Dee’s one must-have was her long time best friend as their “flower dude.” He showered guests with petals in hilarious fashion. The infectious laughter was the perfect introduction for beautiful bride, Dee.
To set the ceremony space, For the Beauty Floral created an asymmetrical installation. Layered over draped chiffon was a mixture of roses, daisies, wax flower, mixed foliage, and some dried branch elements to tie in the changing woods in the background. We love this type of floral installation! The asymmetrical placement is a balance for a more intricate bridal gown on the opposite side of the ceremony space.
Their short and sweet ceremony was kept cozy in the transitional season weather with comfortable blankets for guests. Making the most of our indoor and outdoor offerings was a top priority for Dee and Jake. We love providing these gorgeous and seasonally flexible options for you and your guests.
Advice for identifying the best vendors for your wedding
Having a relaxed celebration was key for Dee and Jake to simply celebrate their love. Between deployment and working in healthcare in the midst of the pandemic, these two were excited for a relaxed day of fun. The bride’s advice for other couples?

An easy Autumn wedding reception
For the Beauty Floral brought the color for Dee and Jake’s wedding reception. With vibrant bud vases offering a deconstructed version of the focal-point florals, the reception hall looked entirely charming. A show-stopper dessert display featuring their three-tier cake by Icing on the Cake created a sweet focal point for the cake cutting. With lanterns provided through our in-house rentals, the room was sweetly illuminated for their guests.
Guests enjoyed a BBQ feast from One World Catering, leaning into Dee and Jake’s love of country comfort. After dinner and heartfelt speeches, an epic dance party was underway. DJ Connection kept the perfect mix going, and the entire party danced into the evening.
We absolutely loved hosting this sweet couple’s joyful Autumn wedding! Thank you, Dee and Jake, for trusting us to make your day memorable.
