Thorncrown Chapel is Eureka Springs’ premier wedding location. Since 1980 people have come from all over the world to get married at this beautiful glass cathedral in the woods. Surrounded by beautiful rock formations and a canopy of trees, the chapel provides an unforgettable setting for your wedding ceremony. Because Thorncrown has over 6,000 square feet of glass and 425 windows, your wedding can be outdoors and indoors in air conditioned comfort at the same time.
Our experienced staff has been coordinating wedding services for over 30 years. We provide both a minister and a chapel host to make sure your ceremony is as care free as possible. Of course, you are welcome to bring your own minister if you so desire.
The chapel seats up to 100 guests. Our facilities also include a changing area with a full length mirror, a first class sound system, and a piano. Because of the unique acoustics of Thorncrown Chapel, listening to live or recorded music is a special experience. Our chapel music minister is available to play the piano and sing for your ceremony for an extra fee. We can also help you locate stringed quartets and other musicians to add beauty to your special day.
The Thorncrown Worship Center
The Thorncrown Worship Center is our larger building. It can accommodate up to 300 people and is available for both large and small weddings.
Designed by world renowned architect E. Fay Jones, the Worship Center sits on a hillside overlooking the valley below. As you enter the building, you walk down cascading steps to stand in front of a 50 foot glass window. The Worship Center boasts trusses that are even more elaborate than Thorncrown Chapel and a steeple that rises 75 feet into the air. It is a favorite of both local folks and out of town guests.
