1. Wide Selection of Lovely Wedding Venues

You’ll find a wide selection of wedding venues throughout the Smoky Mountains! Wedding chapels are an excellent choice if you’re looking for an easy option with a low-maintenance wedding, and you usually only need a marriage license and proof of age. There are multiple wedding chapels in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge that can accommodate many guests, as well as ones that offer a space for a more intimate crowd. Some couples enjoy having a ceremony inside of a private cabin rental, while others love getting married at one of the approved locations inside of Great Smoky Mountains National Park!
