Nestled in the Ozark woodlands lies the stunning Thorncrown Chapel. Rising forty-eight feet into the Arkansas sky and sitting on 100 tons of native stone, it is no surprise it has been credited to be “one of the finest religious spaces of modern times.” People from all over the world come to visit this majestic beauty and it has easily become a prime elopement destination. Since the design consists of 425 clear glass windows you can be in an indoor climate while feeling like you’re getting married outside in the middle of the mountains.
Steph & Bob wanted a destination wedding and fell in love with the beauty of Arkansas. “We are both lovers of the great outdoors, being surrounded by nature and beautiful bodies of water. When we came across Thorncrown Chapel, surrounded by trees, stone and all those windows bringing the outdoor beauty inside, we knew it was the perfect setting to share our vows with one another. The day couldn’t have been more perfect.”
