Wedding Venues

Your Wedding Should Be A Work Of Art

Imagine getting married in a museum of American art designed by a world-renowned architect, surrounded by 120 acres of enchanting Ozark forest.

Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art is a premier wedding venue in the Northwest Arkansas region, located in Bentonville. We have a wide selection of elegant venues on the museum grounds, both indoor and outdoor, to meet any wedding size, budget, or desire. Walk down the aisle in the Great Hall with views overlooking the museum’s ponds, dance in the North Forest, treat your wedding guests to dinner on the Twin Bridges with a creek babbling alongside, and much more.

Wedding & Reception Venues

Our list of available wedding venues can be transformed into any layout you dream up. Venues are interchangeable for rehearsal dinners, ceremonies, and receptions:

The Frank Lloyd Wright House Lawn

The long swath of green lawn leading up to the stunning architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright makes an excellent setting for an intimate gathering. Set off from the South Lawn by a line of trees and native plantings, and flanked on one side by a stacked-stone wall and the Ozark forest, this space has a private feel perfect for a lawn ceremony or reception. Please note: the Bachman-Wilson House is not available for rental, and is not opened for private events.
