Spring Weddings

Spring Weddings in Eureka Springs, Arkansas are popular for the obvious reasons of spring color and bloom but for also providing warmer temperatures from the winter frost and the cooler temperatures from the southern heat.  Start your new life celebration during the Springtime in the Ozarks.

Choose an outdoor wedding ceremony/reception in the Crescent Gardens with additional indoor space of the beautiful Conservatory room that overlooks the gardens.  Or get married at the iconic wooded setting of Thorncrown Chapel and have your wedding reception inside the Basin Ballroom with stained glass windows surrounding the entire wedding space.

Select a wedding cake with spring seasonal fruits or berries instead of the traditional butter cream or chocolate flavors.  Spring flower colors can also be an added touch around or on a cake. Include pastel colors to bring that softer touch to your wedding backdrop and then enhance it with one or two brighter colors.  Continue this theme inside and out of your wedding ceremony or reception space. Some wedding designers even go a little further by bringing in ivy and/or flowers to drape along the wedding chairs for added spring design.

Venue Love: The Ozark Room

If you were to visit the Basin Park Hotel, and travel to the first floor, taking a left from the staircase, you would see the entrance to the lovely and unique Ozark Room. Outside the door, on the wall to the left of the entrance, you could read a plaque that perfectly prepares you for the artwork within. It reads:

 

Ozark Room Artwork

The Ozarks Mountain Country

Art Inspired by Nature

 

The Ozarks Mountain Country is much more than a geologic highland located in Middle America…it is a work of art waiting to be captured –on canvas, through a lens, or in a poem, play or song- by those who come upon this jewel along the Arkansas Art Trail.

Some say the work Ozarks is derived fro the linguistic corruption of the French abbreviation “aux Arks”, Arks being short for Arkansas. Others say the name is the French term “aux arc” which refers to the top most arc or bend in the Arkansas River. While others say it means “of the arches” referring to the dozens of natural bridges formed by erosion and collapsed caves in the Ozarks region. Regardless of the origin of its name, to an artist, Ozarks means pristine beauty, the kind the first settlers might have seen hundreds of years ago.

 

The art here in the Ozark Room of the 1905 Basin Park Hotel was created by Larry Mansker, a resident of Eureka Springs. It was an “Ozark Spring” that served as the inspiration for these paintings. The larges of these creations depicts a spring morning at Eureka Springs’ Lake Leatherwood.

Larry Mansker very well captured the essence of the Ozarks in these paintings.

Now the Ozarks are part of every event held in this room: wedding receptions, music festivals, and meetings, among others. We embrace the nature and beauty presented in these works of art, and we hope you will enjoy them just as much as we do.
