Outdoor Weddings

If you are planning an outdoor wedding, keep in mind that the weather in the Smoky Mountains can be unpredictable. Make sure that you have arranged for a back-up plan if the weather turns bad on your wedding day. Also, have more than one location planned for your wedding photos in case of weather – or be willing to reschedule them for another day.

GSMNP Weddings

There are many pre-approved locations within the Great Smoky Mountains where you can hold your wedding, including historic churches, mountain rivers, streams and waterfalls. The rules of the National Park mean that you can only have two weddings per day in any of these locations. In order to have the most options, you should make your wedding plans as early as possible.

Permits & Licenses

The best time of year for a wedding in the Smokies is the fall. The temperatures are not too hot, the weather is mostly pleasant and the leaves are changing to dazzling hues of red, yellow and gold. What a fantastic setting to celebrate your commitment and love for that special someone in your life.
