What they say!

We love helping guests celebrate in a stress-free environment.

An amazingly beautiful and peaceful place for a wedding or other event. These grounds are so well kept and the hosts are most gracious and welcoming. Michael is a wonderful photographer as well. So many people don’t even know that it exists just outside of Mena. I highly recommend that you check it out before booking elsewhere.

A day I will absolutely never forget… the day I married my best friend. 
I would also like to say a HUGE “thank you” to Michael Cate at Avalon Keep Botanical Gardens for not only access to his irreplaceable venue, but for both coordinating AND photographing all throughout the big day. I would’ve had it no other way; thank you, thank you, thank you.

Mike and his wife were great! They helped make my big day as stress-free as possible!

This is also a gorgeous place to have any kind of photos taken, and Mike does great with the assistance of his wife!

 “I was absolutely blown away with Avalon Keep!! I could not believe this venue was in Mena, Arkansas. Michael and Melinda were incredible in every way! They were so easy to work with and they helped and advised us in our wedding plans. Thank you so much for making our wedding a perfect night!” — Dr. G McDonald

Awesome owners and venue! Michael not only takes great care of his brides and customers, but also his vendors. We (385 Events) continue to rave about his attention to detail and ease to work with. By far the best venue in Mena that has you covered from A-Z. If you want your special occasion to be remembered for years to come book with Avalon!
