Burgundy and Blue Wedding at The Wilds | Bloomington

When it comes to planning a wedding, couples are always looking for unique ways to incorporate their personal style and preferences into the event. For those seeking a masculine and edgy vibe, incorporating burgundy and blue details can be the perfect choice.

The Wilds Venue in Bloomington, Indiana provided an ideal backdrop for such a wedding. The atmosphere offered a versatile space that could be transformed to match the couple’s desired ambiance including a custom cigar bar, tobacco leaf accents and engaging signature cocktails. By adding these thoughtful details, we created a unique and one-of-a-kind atmosphere! Scroll on to see our vision unfold…

For the bride’s attire, a custom leather jacket was added for an edgy yet sophisticated look. She also added a pair of black pumps to complete the look. The groom’s burgundy jacket, rented from Sophia’s Bridal, was the perfect pop of color.

To balance the femininity often associated with weddings, we incorporated masculine details into the day. One main aspect was the addition of a cigar bar where guests could indulge in premium cigars paired with fine bourbon or the signature craft cocktails. This addition not only added an element of luxury but also provided an opportunity for guests to enjoy a unique experience.

For a unique spin on signature drinks, Upland mixed up some amazing concoctions including a Chocolate Fig Old Fashioned and a Smoked Blood Orange Boulevardier. The presentation was picture perfect!

When it comes to creating a visually stunning table setting, the choice of colors and accessories can make all the difference. Read on to see how we integrated the combination of blue and burgundy colors with a touch of masculinity to each place setting.

The use of blue goblets from violet vintage and a soft cornflower blue runner added an elegant touch of softness to the table. To further enhance the aesthetic appeal, black dinnerware and flatware accented by tobacco leaves underneath added a touch of intrigue and depth to the overall arrangement. The contrast between the dark dinnerware and rust brown tobacco leaves created an interesting visual impact.

In addition, custom leather place cards and custom tea towel napkins completed the place setting. These custom napkins with the signature cocktail printed, created by Creative in Bloom, added delightful surprise for guests.

By combining these elements – from the captivating color palette of blue and burgundy to unique accessories like vintage goblets, tobacco leaves accents, leather place cards, and custom printed napkins, created an unforgettable dining experience that was both visually appealing and memorable for guests.

The clear acrylic seating chart adorned with tobacco leaves truly made a statement. Its unique combination of materials and design elements created an eye-catching and sophisticated display. The transparency of the acrylic allowed the intricate details of the tobacco leaves to shine through, adding a touch of natural beauty to the overall aesthetic.

We couldn’t do what we do without the creative minds and talented individuals who bring our vision to life. From their brilliant ideas to flawless execution, they always go above and beyond to make our dreams a reality. Thank you for bringing this vision to reality at the Wilds in Bloomington!
