I'm a Tennessee-based freelance writer with a passion for true crime, a thirst for knowledge, and an obsession with lists.

For many years, Gatlinburg has been a premier site for destination weddings with its array of chapels dotting the hills in the shadows of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Rustic, intimate settings are what draws folks to this Appalachian Mountains paradise.

For more than half a century, Gatlinburg and its sister cities of Pigeon Forge and Sevierville have helped betrothed pairs to plan their weddings. Sadly, too many of the area's beautiful wedding sites were destroyed with the 2016 fires but fortunately, all was not lost.

Below are the best Gatlinburg wedding chapels which remained untouched by the devestating fires and continue to offer memorable wedding services - from venue only bookings to elaborate customized weddings, to couples from all parts of the world.

Questions & Answers

  • Can I bring my own minister to these chapels?

    All of the chapels have ordained ministers on site, but I’m unaware of any who state specifically that they allow private ministers. However, every chapel I listed is not above helping couples tailor-make their wedding, so I’d certainly suggest asking if you find a chapel that you like.
