Top Ozarks Wedding Resorts
Mulberry Mountain Lodging & Events
“I got married at Mulberry Mountain.” Doesn’t that just have a nice ring to it? Besides the alliteration, getting married at Mulberry Mountain conjures up images of idyllic beauty, quaint accommodations, and incredible hospitality. Nothing could be closer to the truth.
With over 6,000 sq. ft. of wedding and reception space in their beautifully constructed Mountain Hall, Mulberry Mountain has more than enough space to handle any size of wedding you could possibly want. Against the pristine backdrop of the Ozark Mountains, the venue was crafted with large cedar beams and an over-sized native stone fireplace in order to instill a real “cozy lodge” vibe. Of course if you’d like to get hitched in the oft-gorgeous Ozark weather, Mulberry Mountain also offers multiple sites for an outdoor wedding, where you and your families will breathe in the fresh Ozark Mountain air and observe the gorgeous views that only come in the Ozarks.

Buffalo Outdoor Center
While the Buffalo Outdoor Center is popularly known as Arkansas's premier cabin, canoeing, and zip line resort, it also has hosted beautiful weddings for decades.

From the onset, you and your spouse will fall in love with the Buffalo Outdoor Center’s exceptional beauty and fantastic venues. The RiverWind Lodge offers a 30-mile view of Buffalo River country, and makes for a central location for the wedding you’ve always dreamed of. Incredibly spacious, the Lodge is stuffed with reception-friendly amenities, including a beautiful central great room, a projector screen for showing videos or slideshows, and an outdoor campfire gazebo.

Whitney Mountain Lodge
Look at that picture. Can you fathom a more idyllic setting for you and the person you love to say your vows? You’ll remember the wedding because it’s your wedding; a majority of your guests will remember your wedding because of the jaw-dropping backdrop. Regardless, your wedding will be a memorable one.Look at that picture. Can you fathom a more idyllic setting for you and the person you love to say your vows? You’ll remember the wedding because it’s your wedding; a majority of your guests will remember your wedding because of the jaw-dropping backdrop. Regardless, your wedding will be a memorable one.
Weddings of all settings can be accommodated. Want a wedding that looks like the award scene at the end of Star Wars: A New Hope? Bring 300 of your closest family and friends! Prefer a more intimate ceremony? Reserve the private club/bar area for a night of luxury. Your very own event coordinator will take care of everything that you don’t want to. The ceremony itself can be inside or outside, but obviously the Lodge recommends being surrounded by the Ozarks’ majesty. End the night in the spacious banquet room, dancing til you can't dance no mo’.
Whitney Mountain Lodge, 12483 Lodge Dr, Garfield, AR 72732
Is there a better way to get hitched than outside, surrounded by towering pines and majestic mountains, with dozens of your families and friends looking on? The answer is an unequivocal NO.
Look out any window at Saddleback and the only thing you’ll see is mother nature’s glory. The Ozark Mountains provide an immaculate setting for your wedding, so much so that your guests might have some trouble keeping their attention on the ceremony over its intangible glory. Inside, you’ll be impressed with the lodge’s tall vaulted ceilings, log accents, and casual lodge décor. The lodge is cozy, homey, and full of enchanting charm. Channel your inner Disney princess (even if you’re a guy) and celebrate love surrounded by nature’s bounty.
Be sure to bring your camera and binoculars as you are sure to encounter plenty of deer, turkeys, squirrels, and an occasional bear!
