An Arkansas Wedding Venue Like No Other
Don't just say your vows anywhere---say them in Ponca. Where there’s no finer wedding venue in Arkansas than one of our spacious lodges or romantic cabins surrounded by the immense beauty of the Buffalo National River. Ponca is Arkansas's prettiest place, so weddings here are backdropped by gorgeous Ozark Mountain scenery every season of the year. And while the scenery may be grand, the price tag isn't---your wedding budget goes further at BOC, allowing you to treat your guests to an incredibly beautiful, yet very affordable event. Our on-staff wedding coordinator Samantha can assist you with choosing a lodge or cabin venue...planning your event setup...and suggestions for catering, floral, tent rental and photography services. Need an officiant to perform your ceremony? She can help there, too! Ready to reach out to her and learn more about planning an unforgettable Buffalo River wedding with us?

Our Convenient Location
For guests coming from all over, our central location within the US – and proximity to two major airports – makes it easy to travel here. Guests driving from northwest or central Arkansas, Missouri, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Kansas, Mississippi and central/southeast Texas are within a one-day drive. For guests flying in, we’re about 90 minutes from Northwest Arkansas National Airport (XNA) and 2.5 hours from the Little Rock Airport.
Exclusive to Your Wedding
Unlike many wedding venues, we don’t double book. You and your guests will have the lodge or cabin to yourselves, so there’s no waiting for one wedding party to clear the area while another one is lined up behind you. In other words, you won’t have the pressure or interference of multiple events going on around you. Forget the stress of a rigid time slot and know that your lodge or cabin is yours for the day, not just an hour or two.
Romantic Honeymoon Cabins
After the festivities, easily transition to your honeymoon at one of our romantic cabins for two. Our secluded cabins offer privacy, relaxation and comfort for the newly-wedded couple – and most offer decks with stunning views and hot tubs or bedside Jacuzzi tubs. We think you’ll find our beautiful mountain-top cabins the perfect retreat from the world to being your new life together.
Additional Lodging Available
Need more room than a lodge allows? Our nearby cabins provide easy, convenient lodging for your wedding guests. Use our lodging map to view your chosen lodge or cabin and find adjacent cabins for your guests to stay in.
About Event Fees
For a wedding, family reunion, corporate meeting, or another event at a BOC lodge or cabin, an event fee is charged in addition to lodging fees when at least one event meal, reception, or meeting occurs during the reservation.
About Security Deposits
A security/damage deposit is taken in addition to an event fee at the time your event contract is signed. It is completely refundable following an inventory and cleaning of the rental by our staff.
