    Elegant and Amazing!

    The Wilds Wedding Venue is absolutely stunning! The natural background and scenic views made for amazing photography. The facilities are stunning as well and provide a beautiful backdrop to any wedding style. The decorating packages, vendors, built-bars, and bridal lounge make The Wilds an absolutely perfect choice for any bride. As the mother of the bride, I was able to relax and enjoy the day while everything came together around us in stunning beauty. The staff is completely professional, responsive, and a pleasure to work with! I can't imagine a more perfect experience for our daughter and our family!

    The Wilds's reply:

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us this very thoughtful review, Rhonda. I'm going to miss connecting with you at our Monthly Open Houses! Wishing you and your lovely family all the very best!

    The most stunning and romantic venue with an incredible staff!

    The Wilds Wedding and Event Venue is so, so special. It first drew us in for its beauty - set on a hill on a beautiful farm, it's picturesque, absolutely stunning. It was after meeting the owners, however, that we were sure we had found the perfect venue for our wedding! Alison and Brian have created the most incredible environment for couples planning their wedding day. The open houses, endless consultations, planning templates and timelines, preferred vendor lists, and decor inventory is something out of this world! Take it from me (the Bride), a strong Type A personality, that these things really came in handy as planning began! As for the day-of, the staff didn't allow us to lift a finger. They were all incredible and so accommodating! It was truly the most magical, stress-free, and perfect day - many thanks to the staff at The Wilds. We have been so blessed by them, and we look forward to growing our friendship!

    Sincerely,
    Alison & Brian
