The Smoky Mountain Wedding Association can steer you in the right direction. Read on for an unconventional event idea!

Now, we’re not saying there’s anything wrong with tradition! But, why not switch it up a little? You could choose a more well-known wedding venue for its spectacular views, ceremony sites, and reception spaces. This tried-and-true mix of “must-have” attributes has been used by couples across the world for years. This formula is popular because it works — but, it most certainly isn’t your only option.
