Gatlinburg is a touristy town with a busy main street and a multitude of lodging options ranging from convenient to one-of-a-kind, rustic, romantic elegance. It’s fun to visit and filled with options for outdoor lovers and folks seeking out a relaxing weekend in town alike – but the real appeal here is the spectacular Great Smoky Mountains National Park. A beautiful background on a year-round basis, the area happens to be perfect for one more item on your agenda: planning a wedding.
Laurel Valley Resort
When you sit down to start planning your big day, it’s true that the venue will be one of the first items on your list. We think that Laurel Valley Resort, a full service resort located just outside of Gatlinburg at the entrance to the Great Smokey Mountains National Park, is one option that can help you put a check mark next to “venue” straightaway. Lodging, activities, and beautiful ceremony and reception locations are available at the resort, and events of all sizes are welcome.
Little Log Wedding Chapel
This intimate sight may be our favorite Gatlinburg wedding venue. Ideal for ceremonies, the Little Log Wedding Chapel is fit for “I do’s” in any season (truthfully, the location looks especially lovely blanketed in snow), and couples can select from a number of packages including everything from photography to flowers that are customizable across a number of price points.
Blue Mountain Mist
We’d be hard-pressed to talk about Gatlinburg wedding locations without mentioning Blue Mountain Mist. This Victorian-style farmhouse, just moments from town and the Smoky Mountains, is set on 60 acres packed with romance and Southern hospitality. All inclusive wedding packages will help you and your fiancé keep your planning simple and your wedding day worry-free.
