Arkansas Arts Center
The gorgeous Arkansas Arts Center is about to undergo a huge renovation and expansion with a projected opening date of early 2022. In the meantime, brides can choose to have their wedding or reception in one of the many spaces at the Arkansas Arts Center like the Alice Pratt Brown Atrium.

Walton Arts Center
The newly renovated Walton Arts Center is a stunning modern space for brides looking for something different than barns or ballrooms. The architecture of the building is stunning and features beautiful additions such as floor-to-ceiling windows, a signature chandelier, a grand staircase, an art gallery, a rose garden amphitheater and a black box theater — just imagine the photo ops!

Indoor spaces include the elegant Great Hall, with soaring wood-beamed ceilings and views of water on three sides. Crystal Bridges also offers beautiful outdoor lawns, gardens and forest that sprawl across the museum’s 120-acre site.
