When most couples consider a beautiful lakeside wedding, they may first imagine a spring or summer ceremony. However, the Chickasaw Retreat and Conference Center, situated on a bluff overlooking the scenic Lake of the Arbuckles, offers a stunning wedding backdrop, no matter the season.
A fall wedding at the Retreat revels in vibrant autumn foliage and guests can enjoy Oklahoma's beautiful fall weather. Surrounded by 1,750 acres of indigenous trees and native grasses at the crossroads of eastern hardwood forests and western prairies, the Retreat offers outdoor wedding settings from hilltop vistas to lakeside services. A variety of Indoor and outdoor spaces can be used for the rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception.
The natural beauty of the ancient Arbuckle Mountains creates an incredible backdrop for wedding photos. Amid the fall leaves, find your favorite spot for bridal photos on the Retreat grounds or take photos at the nearby Chickasaw National Recreation Area or Turner Falls.
Even in winter, the Chickasaw Retreat and Conference Center creates an unforgettable wedding setting. Couples have planned beautiful outdoor ceremonies in winter, often set against dramatic winter sunsets.
If weather is a concern, indoor venue spaces give the opportunity to enjoy the season but guarded from the elements. The Great Room offers the possibility of an intimate fireside ceremony, and the indoor amphitheater showcases views of the lake and the Arbuckle Mountains.
The Chickasaw Retreat and Conference Center is designed to accommodate weddings large or small, and styles from elegant and formal to rustic. The retreat offers 39 guest rooms and four suites, along with a full catering menu.
