Venues

Polished and pretty, Boho and barn-style, or simple and Southern, there are venues to fit your style and setting for this momentous occasion. Each of these venues have years of experience, stunning Smoky Mountain settings, and varying packages to accommodate your budget and guest list.

Gatlinburg’s Little Log Wedding Chapel
This absolutely charming venue is a modest log church nestled right on the banks of a peaceful pond surrounded by lush Smoky Mountain forestry. This particular venue provides several packages that include photography and ceremony starting as low as $300.

4 Points Farm
After 8 generations, 4 Points Farm continues to thrive as a family-owned business with 10 acres of stunning landscapes open for you and the guests to explore and enjoy this joyful occasion. A babbling creek, rolling valley, and numerous historical barns and farm equipment create a vintage Smoky Mountain setting to say your vows. This venue has got you covered, too. From the décor and flowers to caterers and photographers, 4 Point Farm has a perfectly tailored package for you.

Flower Mountain Weddings
If your dream ceremony is set against the backdrop of majestic mountains, abundant wildflowers, and expansive blue skies, then look no further. With such reputable notoriety from The Knot (2019 Best of Weddings), you are sure to be in steady hands with the team at Flower Mountain Weddings. Polished and elegant, choose from their packages depending on your guest count and budget!

Enchanted Valley Barn of the Great Smoky Mountains
Delicate touches and country chic décor make this lovely weathered barn on the water a Smoky Mountain dream wedding location. The seasoned event staff employed at Enchanted Valley Barn have got you covered every step of the way, too. Enchanted Valley Barn even boasts green/eco-friendly weddings for those who want to protect the stunning environment in which they are being wed!

A money-saving venue idea:
If you are not planning on a large wedding, then why not combine your stay and venue into one? Many of our midsize and large group cabins have stunning views from the deck and ample space to set-up a small ceremony. Contact our vacation planners to get help with planning an in-cabin wedding, from the perfect cabin to the wedding officiant and photographers.

Where to Stay

Pigeon Forge, Tennessee Cabins boasts gorgeous large-group lodges, cabin properties that are close to or right next door to one another, and stunning luxury chalets to fit your wedding party and guest list. No matter what cabin you choose, your lodging will provide a fully loaded kitchen, cozy furnishings, and entertaining amenities to keep you preoccupied during this exciting (but sometimes stressful) time.

A money-saving stay idea:
Let everyone in your wedding party and guest list know in advance about the cost of the cabin and have everyone split the cost once everyone has sent in their RSVP. Splitting the cost of our lodgings make them extremely affordable for everyone and keeps family and friends together during this magical time. If your wedding package did not include a rehearsal dinner, the wedding party can simply return to the cabin and dine with everyone in the intimacy of your lodge’s dining room. You can even have it catered in the cabin with Savory Solutions with Chef Jeremy for an extra-delicious, hassle-free dinner!

A money-saving flowers idea:
Another small touch if your wedding package doesn’t include flowers or you are having an intimate Smoky Mountain cabin wedding, make your own bouquets! Here is the catch, though: hit up Hobby Lobby when their fake flowers are on sale (every other week, just check their online savings calendar), choose the flowers that fit your color scheme, arrange your flowers, and tie them off with complementing ribbon. Sounds like a lot, but my sister did this and then sold our bouquets from the wedding party for a profit! We had a ton of fun making the bouquets together, too, over a girl’s night with wine.

A Smoky Mountain wedding is a great way to go cheap on décor… you’ve got the natural setting of rolling mountain peaks, peaceful rivers and ponds, lush forestry, and abounding wildflowers. Make this summer wedding a truly magical experience for yourself and all your loved ones, too, by staying together in a Pigeon Forge, Tennessee Cabin and letting the therapeutic effects of the mountain wilderness complement this truly momentous time of your life.
