We all enjoy partaking in a pretty winter wonderland”once in a while, but there are also days we’re confined to looking out the window as we sit on our couches in our fleece pajamas, trying to stay warm.

Sorry, busy bride-to-be. That’s just not going to cut it. You can’t let being stuck inside keep you from checking tasks off the pre-wedding to-do list, especially when one of those tasks is taking your bridal portraits.

But never fear. Bridal pictures can be just as lovely when done indoors! Don’t believe us? Check out these beautiful—and warm—spots around the state.


The Royal Ridge, Royal A short distance from Hot Springs, this venue boasts a terrific, traditional barn with beautiful landscaping and views.

St. John’s Chapel, Benton This little church is as serene as it sounds. It has beautiful views of the property’s terrace and creek, and the spiral staircase is definitely an added bonus!

Alda’s Magnolia Hill, Little Rock This whole property is simply stunning! The Big Red Barn is such a classic backdrop,and the owners have numerous props available for use, including a live horse and carriage.
