Gatlinburg Elopement Quick Guide

Eloping to Honeysuckle Hills in the mountains of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg

With so many ways to elope to the Smoky Mountains, planning a destination wedding can feel overwhelming at first. If you've become exhausted after digging through all the commercial, tourist-driven options, it's time to relax.

Our family believes in a better way to get married in the East Tennessee mountains.

  • We only do one wedding each day... yours.
  • You may use our dressing areas any time after 9am.  (Most couples arrive a few hours ahead of time.)
  • Meet a salon stylist here, or do your own hair and make-up in our spacious bridal suite, complete with salon chair, large mirrors, make-up lights, dress steamer, and even a sofa and kitchenette area.
  • Regina will assist you with your dress if you need it.
  • Each wedding package is based on the activity time you'll need for the ceremony and photography.
  • All packages include your wedding officiant, with no tipping required.
  • All packages include exceptional, high-end photography with a flash drive of ALL the images, full printing resolution, with copyright release to print on your own
  • All packages include professional enhancements to 30% of the images.  Examples include removing blemishes, softening fine lines, and making body parts appear more slender.
