Weddings in the Smoky Mountains
Smoky Mountain Wedding Venues
Another popular venue for wedding ceremonies is the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.* With the proper permit from the Park's Ranger Activities Division, couples may wed outdoors in nature's cathedral or at one of the Park's historic structures such as the Methodist or Primitive Baptist Church in Cades Cove.
*Please note: A special use permit is required for all weddings, wedding receptions, wedding photography and other special events held in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The special use permit fee is $150, plus a $50 non-refundable processing fee. Certain ceremony guidelines must be observed as well, such as restrictions on candles.
