If you decide to get married in Tennessee, you can relax and know that you're in professional hands. Gatlinburg is the wedding capital of Tennessee, with hundreds of thousands of couples saying "I do" every year. These people take their wedding responsibilities seriously, and strive to provide a dream wedding customized to every bride.

Goin' to the Chapel, and I'm Gonna Get Married

If you want to have a chapel wedding, you can. If you want to have a wedding under the pines, you can. If you want to get married in your honeymoon cabin, you can. You can have a western-theme wedding. You can be married by a waterfall, or a stream, or even in the shadow of the mountains themselves in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

You may be married by ordained ministers or a Justice of the Peace. You can have a bevy of bridesmaids, or just the two of you. Cakes, flowers, birdsong, or Wind Beneath My Wings can all be in the mix. A little planning and some advance budgeting is all it takes.

Gatlinburg is rich with wedding planners, wedding photographers, and honeymoon cabins and chalets. A little research should get you planning and realizing the wedding of your dreams. Often, identifying one aspect of your wedding or honeymoon helps the rest of the pieces fall into place. For instance, if you find the perfect lodging, chances are the innkeeper can hook you up with a professional planner. Or the photographer may know a wonderful little privately-owned cabin that is very romantic, and which photographs beautifully. The only thing you need is time to find exactly what you want, and patience to know that it will all come together.
