You found your perfect partner and are sporting a shiny new ring on your finger. So what’s next? After you get an idea of a guest count, the budget, and a rough date it’s time to start looking for a wedding venue. The wedding venue you chose will be one of the most memorable vendors you book because it will be the backdrop to your special day! One of our all-time favorite wedding venues that we recommend for you to check out is Dogwood Canyon Nature Park just outside of Branson, Missouri!
Dogwood Canyon Wedding Venue
The Dogwood Canyon wedding venue is located just 30 minutes south of Branson in a little town called Lampe on the Missouri Arkansas border. The park features 10,000 acres of lush woods, large bluffs, picturesque waterfalls, crystal clear streams, and stunning bridges. Dogwood Canyon is truly a magical scene for any wedding and has world-class staff to help customize your perfect day!
Ceremonies & Receptions at Dogwood Canyon
Dogwood Canyon has a variety of ceremony and reception sites to pick from that can accommodate 25 to 128 guests.
Hope Wilderness Chapel
The Hope Wilderness Chapel was inspired by churches from the 1800s. The chapel is constructed by handmade, locally sourced short-leaf pine logs, oak flooring, and an easter red cedar ceiling. The Hope Wilderness Chapel features a large floor-to-ceiling window at the front of the chapel with a spectacular waterfall view. This venue can seat 25 to 120 guests and is perfect for vow renewals, elopements, and wedding ceremonies.
The Chapel Patio is a versatile space that is commonly used for both wedding ceremonies as well as receptions. It is located right off the back of the Hope Wilderness Chapel and can hold up to 90 guests. With pristine landscaping and a picturesque waterfall that cascades into a beautiful pool of blue-green water, it is the perfect backdrop for any event!
Canyon Grill Restaurant
The Canyon Grill Restaurant is in my opinion the most popular choice among couples to host their wedding reception. The restaurant is located at the park’s entrance and can hold 50 to 120 guests. With stunning wood beams, a giant fireplace, and floor-to-ceiling windows with a spectacular view of Indian Cliff Falls this space is sure to wow everyone!
Canyon Grill Patio
The Canyon Grill Patio is located just outside of the restaurant and can hold 50 to 120 people. With the romantic backdrop of the 150′ Indian Cliff Falls waterfall cascading into the blue-green pool below it’s no surprise that this location is a popular choice for wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours, and wedding receptions!
Tucked inside Dogwood Canyon is the Chuckwagon Pavillion. Lush woods and a crystal clear stream surround the rustic pavilion. This venue site is perfect for intimate gatherings as small as 25 people to large weddings up to 128.
