Their venue is the perfect canvas for an intimate and rustic reception! I was going for an inexpensive rustic but elegant look! Because the venue is so beautiful and nicely laid out, with gorgeous windows, I was able to save a lot on decorations. I splurged on just the lights and chairs. Everything else was so simple yet it looked so much more expensive than it was. Their team is great, so friendly and professional. Everything was clean and tasteful. You'll love having your wedding at American Wilderness!Sent on 02/28/2020

We had our ceremony outside with 56 degrees and sunny, it was perfect! American Wilderness did a great job at making sure everything was ready for us to set up our special day. Wonderful venue to work with and wonderful people. Inside was clean and the log cabin event center made for a beautiful setting. Any questions I had were answered in a timely manner. I wouldn’t have had our wedding day any other way!Sent on 11/10/2019
