Birds are singing in the sweet mountain air as clouds crawl over green mountain peaks set against faint blue skies in the distance. The wedding party has taken their places at the end of the aisle, and everyone stands to turn to witness this moment. Everything but your soulmate’s eyes fade away as you lock arms with your escort and make your way down the aisle. It’s the day you’ve been dreaming about, and now – with the scenic Smoky Mountains as the backdrop – it’s more beautiful than you could have imagined.
If a hometown wedding isn’t your style, plan a gorgeous Gatlinburg wedding. Smoky Mountain scenery year-round (changing leaves in fall, wildflowers in spring, greenery in summer, and snow-covered mountains in winter), lovely weather, cozy cabins perfect for a romantic honeymoon getaway, great restaurants, local wineries, plenty of shows and shopping…what’s not to love?
Add to all that the convenience of a Gatlinburg wedding. Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge are home to dozens of resources to make planning a wedding easy. From romantic wedding chapels tucked among the trees or set next to waterfalls and all-in-one venues that offer catering and flowers to great photographers and wedding dress shops that offer rentals, you’ll have plenty of options at your fingertips. Every style of wedding, whether it’s rustic and simple or extravagant and refined, the Smoky Mountains makes for a breathtaking atmosphere to complement the beauty and glow of the couple on this incredibly special day.

MEMORABLE CABIN WEDDINGS
An Intimate Affair
Some simply want only the most important people in their lives present for their wedding – a couple family members and friends. Choose one of our mid-size cabins with 3 to 5 bedrooms that often have the extra space to sleep more guests on sleeper sofas and bunkbeds for little ones like the flower girl and the ring bearer. These cabins are a wedding location and vacation in one for you and the ceremony attendees, packed with amenities like outdoor hot tubs, pools, and game rooms! Host the ceremony in your cabin for a budget-friendly venue and the easiest travel to the reception, ever!
A Cabin Wedding for the Whole Family
Have about 40 to 50 guests in attendance including the wedding party? Cabins for YOU offers majestic, rustic large group cabins with mountain, valley, and wooded views! Whether your ceremony is with an area venue or on location in the cabin, these large cabins are a perfect way to save money on expensive hotels for your destination wedding. It is also a big plus to have everyone staying together for this special time! Your wedding guests will love playing pool in the game room or swimming in the private indoor pool offered in many of our cabins before they head to their rooms to get ready for the ceremony.
Once again, you can easily hire one of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg’s wedding service companies to send an ordained minister and catering company to host the ceremony and reception all in one easy location: your luxurious cabin! Large cabins are also a perfect way for guests to carpool to the ceremony from one convenient location, instead of multiple hotels! Wedding attendees will love the proximity of their cabin to venues like The Preacher’s House and Enchanted Valley Barn. Splitting the cost of these large cabins is easy, too; simply have guests RSVP with accommodation prices instead of reserving hotel rooms.
The happy couple will inevitably want their privacy for their wedding night, but why not stay in the exquisite beauty of the Smoky Mountains for your honeymoon, too? Save money on expensive airfare to another destination when you have the one of the country’s most beautiful national parks right here. Cabins for YOU offers plenty of romantic 1-bedroom cabins ideal for 2 with a wide range of views, amenities, and seclusion (wink, wink). Take time to relax after all the excitement and stress that inevitably comes with the momentous occasion of getting married in the serenity of calm mountain air. What better way to spend quality time with your new bride or groom than with wine in hand and a hot tub in full view of the beauty of nature?
