Elope to Gatlinburg’s Great Smoky Mountain elopements are second to none. They offer couples a beautiful and enchanting backdrop for an intimate escape to say “I do.” In this guide, we’ll discuss why so many couples choose a Smoky Mountain elopement from Elope to Gatlinburg and how the Smokies’ breathtaking landscapes and timeless charm make a wedding ceremony here truly magical.
The Charm of Great Smoky Mountain Elopements
Even for our couples who haven’t visited the area before, it doesn’t take much of an imagination to envision how beautiful it truly can be here. From breathtaking mountain vistas to natural creeks and river frontage, the Great Smoky Mountains is home to some of the most beautiful spots in the country to take your vows. Peaks covered in Smoky Mountain mist, dense forests, and vibrant blooms throughout Spring and Summer add to the beauty.
When fall time rolls around, the landscapes light up dramatically in golden amber and red hues. However, whether you are looking to elope in spring, summer, fall, or even winter, the Great Smoky Mountains are magic in the making.
Choosing Your Perfect Spot
Between Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, there are many wonderful spots to get married. Let’s take a look at a couple of them:
Foothills Parkway: Foothills Parkway provides couples with a panoramic mountain view. Overlooks on the Foothills Parkway set the stage for that beautiful vista backdrop many of our couples crave. If a mountain view is important to you, look no further than a Foothills Parkway elopement.
Greenbrier: For those looking for a Great Smoky Mountain elopement around a wide river, Greenbrier will be the choice for you. The only downfall of Greenbrier is that it has many timing restrictions (set by the National Park).
Private Creekside: As a privately owned property (that borders the National Park) and our most popular elopement spot, Private Creekside is elopement magic in the making. It has a private creekside area which is complete with a small waterfall. Additionally, for our micro weddings, it has a covered pavilion that overlooks the creek. Of course, unlike locations actually inside of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, it includes guest seating.
Since it’s designed for very small events, it allows for up to 20 total people. The pavilion area also acts as a rain cover in the event of inclement weather. In addition to all of that, you’ll also find a field complete with two rustic trucks, a rustic tractor, and some old barns which adds to the country vibe of this beautiful elopement spot.

Through a blend of contemporary and classic styles, our photography reflects the unique love story of each couple. We understand that eloping is an intimate experience.

Adam & Danielle were phenomenal! Super helpful with my million questions & made us feel SO comfortable. I requested a sunset time slot at foothills & it rained so no sunset, but Danielle worked her magic & our photos still turned out wonderful. It was just us two plus them & Adam still made the ceremony upbeat & beautiful. Thank you for making the whole thing smooth & memorable!
Our wedding was amazing! Danielle was a great help from the day we booked to the day we said I DO! She walked us through the entire process, answering all our questions and helping to calm our nerves! Rev. Adam made sure we didn’t miss any of our vows and was so helpful in stopping us from getting nervous! Our photos are stunning and Danielle was able to get a good variety including our overly large family. Thank you to you both for making our day so special!

Beware of Imitations and Imposters
As the original Great Smoky Mountain elopement provider, Elope to Gatlinburg has been providing our heartfelt services to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge for over a decade. Over that time, we have officiated and photographed more than 4,000 elopements in the Great Smoky Mountains, amassing a wealth of experience and expertise. As individuals who have embarked on our own elopement journey, we understand the complexities that accompany planning an out-of-state wedding. Every elopement we have the privilege to be part of is approached with the same dedication and attention as if it were our very own.
Distinguishing us from many competitors in the Gatlinburg wedding industry is our unwavering commitment to maintaining complete in-house control over the services we provide. Our dedicated officiant exclusively officiates for Elope to Gatlinburg, and our talented photographer focuses solely on capturing elopement photography for Elope to Gatlinburg. This is in stark contrast to the common industry practice of outsourcing services to the lowest bidder. With other providers, you might find yourself paying a premium for an unpredictable level of quality, as they select officiants and photographers based on cost rather than quality. When you choose us, you're securing a Smoky Mountain elopement package backed by the trusted quality of Elope to Gatlinburg, all at a competitive price.
We invite you to consider the landscape of the Great Smoky Mountain elopement market, where various businesses aim to associate themselves with the esteemed Elope to Gatlinburg brand—a brand we have painstakingly cultivated and upheld since our establishment in 2013. While there may be several imitators seeking to emulate our success, we want to emphasize that Elope to Gatlinburg is the singular, original entity, unrivaled in its dedication, quality, and experience. We take immense pride in our years of service and the trust our clients have bestowed upon us, and we are committed to delivering the exceptional elopement experience that only Elope to Gatlinburg can offer.
Imitation might be the sincerest form of flattery, but when it comes to those competitors trying to mimic the magic of Elope to Gatlinburg, it's a bit like trying to photocopy a Monet. It's no secret that our originality is the driving force behind creating timeless Smoky Mountain elopements. While they might be adept at copying names, they've missed the mark when it comes to crafting their own unique concepts. After all, imitation is easy, but true innovation is an art we've mastered since 2013.
