    Gilpatrick/Green Wedding

    My sons wedding was perfect from beginning to end! The Wilds staff were just exceptional. Courteous, knowledgeable and efficient but most of all they really took the time to address every concern or question that came up. The facility is beautiful and very functional. Our family would recommend the Wilds highly without reservation.

    The Wilds's reply:

    Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a kind review, Lisa! Your words mean so much and we are honored to have hosted your son and daughter-in-law's special day. We wish you and your family all the best!

    Amazing Venue

    I cannot say enough about how amazing the wilds staff is. We pulled together a wedding in a short span of time for my daughter which was a challenge and they were absolutely amazing and the venue is gorgeous and we totally recommend the airbnb they have have for the family to stay in. They have everything covered for an amazing wedding but most importantly they were just amazing to work with. Hailey and Claire and all the staff we dealt with went above and beyond.

    The Wilds's reply:

    Thank you for trusting us with your daughter and son-in-law's once in a lifetime occasion! We are so glad to hear you all enjoyed yourselves at The Wilds and our Stay Wilds Villa. It was such an honor and a joy working alongside of you and your family!
