    Absolutely wonderful experience with The Wilds! (Review from parents of the Bride)

    Our daughter and now son-in-law were married at The Wilds on October 4th, 2020. She could not have found a more beautiful venue and location for their wedding day!
    Alison Faulkner and her husband Brian, were wonderful to work with and so helpful in finding vendors, and answering questions through out the planning process and the wedding day! Also, the Booked Client Resource Guide was so helpful to our daughter in planning their special day.
    Since our daughter's wedding was during CoVid, this was a perfect place for the wedding. Great indoor and outdoor areas. The Wild's venue is a dream! JoAnna Gaines would be thrilled with the modern farmhouse elegant decor, touches and feel.
    Our daughter really wanted an outdoor ceremony, and their beautiful new outdoor ceremony pavilion with the Yellowwood State Forest in the background, was just what she had hope for. And if it had rained, the inside is so gorgeous! So rain or shine, a beautiful wedding can be had at The Wilds!
    And let me say, we are just getting some of her photographs back from the day, and they are absolutely gorgeous!!
    From the day we met, until the end of the wedding day, we just can't say enough good things about Alison, Brian, and The Wilds team!

    The Wilds's reply:

    Thank you for your incredibly kind review, Laura. And even more so, thank you for trusting us with your daughter and son-in-law's wedding day! It was an absolute pleasure getting to know Ashlyn, Matt and your families along our short journey to wedding day!

    All You Could Ever Dream Of!

    The Wilds was an absolute picture perfect wedding venue, I felt like I was in my own fairytale the entire day of my wedding!

    When my husband and I first took a tour, I walked away immediately knowing this is where we would get married. For the first time ever, I could picture my big day. We met Alison for the tour and were absolutely blown away. She was so very kind, answered all of our questions, and made us feel like the most important couple in the world to her at that very moment.

    Alison was so kind to check in on us during the planning process, provided tips to us, and was extremely responsive as those questions popped up. On the day of our wedding, the whole staff was an absolute dream to work with! Everyone made sure I did not lift a finger, and ensured I was very well taken care of. They made the whole day so much fun and relaxing if you can imagine that for your wedding day. I had the absolute time of my life at The Wilds.

    They describe themselves as a turn key venue, and that is 100% true! From the decorating to everything else in between, they do it all! I highly highly recommend The Wilds and their amazing owners/staff. They made my wedding day better than I could have ever imagined!

    The Wilds's reply:

    Brooke,
    I am so grateful that we could provide you and Justin with your fairytale, stress-free wedding day! I can't wait to see your gorgeous wedding gracing the cover of magazines everywhere!

    Thank you,
    Alison
