Northwest Arkansas Elopement Locations
Here are some of my favorite elopement locations in Northwest Arkansas! These spots were selected based on their variety, popularity and natural beauty. I also included some urban environments as well for those that want to stay close to town.

White Rock Mountain is an absolutely beautiful spot to elope in Arkansas. This spot boasts stunning sunset overlooks and the mountains in the distance are absolutely beautiful. These rugged rock faces make for incredible elopement photos!
Dreaming of saying your vows on Dickson Street? Downtown Fayetteville is absolutely perfect for an urban elopement in Arkansas. Some of my favorite spots for downtown Fayetteville elopements include the Spring Street Parking Garage, The Graduate Hotel, Maxine’s Bar, Dickson Street and the nearby Fayetteville square.
An Urban Elopement in Downtown Fayetteville
Eureka Springs is a beautiful resort town made for lovers! This picturesque hillside town has lots of romantic lodging options, as well as great restaurants, a lot of natural beauty and even a glass chapel! Lover’s Leap is also a beautiful natural rock formation that is perfect for an adventure elopement while still being close to town.
MILDRED B COOPER MEMORIAL CHAPEL
DEVIL’S DEN STATE PARK
Devil’s Den is a gorgeous state park located south of Fayetteville, and features several mountaintop overlooks, a river, a beautiful waterfall and a couple caves. This spot is camping friendly and also has cabins and luxury camping options. I especially love the Devil’s Lake Waterfall and the Yellow Rock Overlook for sunset elopements.
ST CATHERINES AT BELL GABLE
This stunning Scottish stone chapel is located in West Fayetteville and features beautiful grounds and access to the inside of the chapel. So many of my couples elope here each year, and they absolutely love the chapel. The staff is also so kind and helpful in the planning process.
Believe it or not, big wedding venues DO offer elopement packages! Osage House is one of my favorite wedding venues in Arkansas, and this beautiful venue currently offers elopement packages for small elopements and intimate weddings.
LOST VALLEY STATE PARK
Located near the Buffalo River, Lost Valley State Park is a gorgeous spot for an adventure elopement. Hike in to see the waterfall and explore the caves, or walk just steps from the parking lot and enjoy unobstructive views of the hills above. It’s an absolutely beautiful spot.
