For the couple wanting an Autumn or Winter wedding bursting with indie personality and ideas, this is the look for you. Feminine and masculine design touches are in perfect balance throughout. This trendsetting design uses whiskey and cigars as unique experiences and design references, balanced by plenty of delicate romance.
Nothing sets the tone for your wedding day like arriving and exiting in style. This vintage Rolls Royce, provided by Btown Classics, will ensure protection from the seasonal elements. A show-stopping classic car makes for an incredible experience for the you and eye candy for your guests.
You can have it all with the right designer on your side. Creative In Bloom brings to life a wedding brand which is equal parts luxurious and modern, with an elegant twist. The bold floral inlay is a surprise within the bold black and gold envelopes, sealed with a rich burgundy stamp. The invitations inside are a crisp white and blue creation, using a modern type design to bring the modern edge. A repeated motif through the wedding is the couple’s custom monogram, utilized on the invitation and throughout the wedding communications.
An arch created entirely out of branches gives a clear focal point in the light-fill interior of The Wilds wedding venue. Touches of burgundy and blush foliage are placed asymmetrically on the arch. Dark iron lanterns bring lots of delightful sparkle. Transitioning to the wedding reception, a sweetheart table with eclectic vintage furniture from Violet Vintage fits perfectly in front of the ceremony set. The classic table decor is kept minimal, allowing the wedding arch to remain the drama and the couple to remain the focal point.
Next, the ultimate laid-back cocktail hour concept. Your guests can start at the bar, tended by Upland Brewing Co. in Bloomington, to grab a signature cocktail. Guests can choose between her Chocolate Fig Old-fashioned or his Smoked Blood Orange Boulevardier. For those looking for a warm, non-alchoholic option, barrel aged craft coffee from Oak & Bond. From there, they will head out to the outdoor fireplace to enjoy one of our favorite winter wedding ideas – a hip cigar bar, customized with the couples’ bespoke monogram.
Our bride carries a touch of romantic edge with a long-sleeve lace gown, a vintage material in a modern fit. Paired with this look is a bespoke leather jacket, perfectly suited to this hip party vibe. Short haired brides take note! This trendsetting look is completely chic, with a wavy side swept bob for a flattering, easy, and edgy style. Our groom brings the classic energy with a modern flair in his burgundy tuxedo jacket. Then, balance is maintained with sleek accessorizing, perfect for the gentleman wanting timeless cool with a twist.
Woven throughout the elegant wedding are alternating saturated and deep tones of burgundy. It is found everywhere from the groom’s jacket from Sophia’s Bridal and Tux to the florals full of whimsy by Artful Blooms. Adding a little romance and a lot of fun to the design, wispy greenery and pale fronds prove that the colder seasons of Autumn and Winter can have the visual lightness usually associated with the warmer seasons. Crisp blue accents keep the design feeling fresh and joyful. And your guests will find their place and be sitting pretty with uniquely textural customized leather name cards. Keepsake napkins printed with the signature drink recipes make for a memorable, beautiful, and useful party favor.
Decadent in flavor and design, the dessert table does not disappoint. The centerpiece is a three-tier creation by Kristina Taylor with Icing on The Cake. The wow-factor is brought by painterly impressions of the floral design, topped with the trendsetting custom monogram of the couple. It has just the right touch of dramatic flair with dark grey base and organic gold edges. Delightfully petite stacked bundt cakes topped with berries and gold leaf are placed around the formal cake. Each individual cake is a luxurious experience sure to have guests feeling delighted. All of which are sure to be autumn or winter wedding ideas you’ll see again at The Wilds wedding venue.
