Carnell Hall Reservations

Attention out of town guests!
...and locals.
Inn at Carnall Hall is providing a remarkable rate for our wedding weekend. Book under "Brooke and Reece" and recieve a nightly rate of $120.
The building was built in 1906 as the first young women's dormitory on campus. It was constructed in the far northeast part of campus, away from male dormitories. It served as a female dorm until 1967, a fraternity house until 1977, and joined the National Register for Historic Places in 1982. In 2001 the Board of Trustees approved the structure to be turned into an historic hotel.
Since the wedding and reception are at the same location, you can sit back relax, and enjoy without worrying about parking or walking. Inn at Carnall Hall is just a short walk from the historic campus and Dickson Street's shopping, eating, and entertainment.
There are 40 rooms at the hotel...each unique in its own way.

Book a room if you would like and don't forget to ask for the wedding rate!

a very "Fayetteville" wedding

Friends and family have asked or may be wondering why we decided to get married at Carnell Hall. Sure, it is a beautiful building...but its more than that to me.

As I dreamed (...and dreamed) and Reece and I discussed getting married we were without a doubt sure that we wanted to get married in Fayetteville.
Its where we went to school,


fell in love,

you get the idea, but where would we get married??

Reece and I love the U of A and everything about Fayetteville -dates at US Pizza, the Fayetteville Square at Christmas, and of course, the Razorbacks. During school he was very involved in Greek Life and I could (and still can be) found at every athletic event "Callin' the Hogs." We met on the football field for goodness a wedding on campus in Fayetteville seemed perfect.
After I convinced Reece that it was okay to sweat a little on your wedding day, we booked June 26th on the turn-around overlooking Old Main Lawn at Carnall Hall.

During my Pi Phi years I walked from the sorority house at the end of Maple street to the campus. Each day I walked up the hill and cut across the turn-around at Carnall Hall. I can remember seeing couples taking wedding pictures there and always looked forward to the tulips that bloom outside every Spring.
Little did I know that I would be getting married at that exact spot 5 years later! From the window of the Bridal suite, you can even see the Pi Phi house...positively perfect.
We love Fayetteville...the time we spent at the U of A...and can't think of a more meaningful place to get married.
