Kristin & Gina's Garden Elopement | The Original Treehouse Cottages, Eureka Springs, AR Wedding Photographer

Walking around Eureka Springs, Arkansas is very much like walking around in another land, separate from the world in which we live. 

It's a town in a spot where there was never meant to be a town, geographically speaking, and that's apparent by its narrow, winding streets and buildings seemingly built half into the mountainside. The town is speckled with beautiful flower gardens, history, legends, & quirky shops to wander through (keep an eye out for the fat, lazy shop cats!).  There are Victorian-style homes that have been converted into bed and breakfasts around every corner. 

It's no wonder that lovers flock to Eureka Springs in the warm months to have a wedding, honeymoon, or elopement. There is no shortage of great wedding venues in Eureka, and with its quaint little cabins in the trees, the Original Treehouse Cottages is perfect for a getaway.

Kristin & Gina

July 17th, 2017

And on a beautiful, summer day in the Ozarks, the garden of the quaint treehouse village was the perfect spot for Kristin & Gina to say "I do"!
 

So much love between these two! Their elopement was a sweet and simple ceremony followed by cake and champagne. They were surrounded by a small group of close friends who were delighted to see them united at last! 

We hope you enjoy some highlights from Kristin & Gina's beautiful wedding day! Please leave the happy couple some words of congratulations in the comments at the end of this page.
