Fortunately, Arkansas is a gorgeous state with plenty of awesome venues. These are our favorite wedding locations.

1. Garrison Gardens, Texarkana, AR

Garrison Gardens is a spectacular wooded setting in the forests outside Texarkana, AR. A natural stream and waterfall, along with wooden walkways and bridges create a gorgeous backdrop for a ceremony. A large, rustic, well-lighted indoor space can accommodate dancing and dinner.

2. The Castle on Stagecoach, Little Rock, AR

The Castle on Stagecoach, in Little Rock, is the only castle in the state that is available for weddings and other events. In addition to the gorgeous indoor spaces, the venue’s expansive grounds make for an elegant outdoor setting, whether for photos or the wedding itself.

3. Sassafras Springs Vineyard and Winery, Springdale, AR

Springdale’s Sassafras Springs Vineyard and Winery offers three striking wedding venues on their grounds. The Winery, itself, has a covered patio, a fireplace and several oversized decks. The Stables provide 3,500 square feet of indoor event space, and The Chapel Ruins are the roofless walls of a former chapel that would be a stunning location for a wedding.

4. Fordyce Ricks Estate, Hot Springs, AR

A gorgeous outdoor venue with a large lawn and an open-air pavilion, the Fordyce Ricks Estate is located in the beautiful village of Hot Springs, adjacent to Hot Springs National Park. What’s more, the venue is relatively well-priced and has both a kitchen and a dance floor available.

Folks looking for a stunning wedding venue in an Ozarks setting could not do much better than Thorncrown Studio in Eureka Springs.
