Cades Cove Churches, Great Smoky Mountains National Park
If you want to have your wedding ceremony in the Park itself, there are some guidelines you must follow.. All weddings in the Park require a permit which can be obtained by contacting the Great Smoky Mountains National Park (828-497-1930) to request an application. To have your ceremony at any of the historic structures such as the Primitive Baptist or Methodist Churches in Cades Cove, there are a few simple guidelines you need to keep in mind. Because the historic structures in the Park are of wood, no candles or lamps are allowed. In addition, parking is very limited (6 parking spots at the Baptist Church, for example). An application to marry in Cades Cove must be submitted to the Cades Cove Center. Be certain to allow ample time prior to your wedding date for processing of permits.
Finally, you must understand that even if you have a permit for a ceremony in the Park, you don't have a reservation in the sense that persons outside your party (tourists) are excluded--they have unfettered access to the premises. Most are courteous enough, though, to keep their distance. This is true in any public outdoor setting.
