Shared by both Tennessee and North Carolina, the Great Smoky Mountains are a majestic natural attraction in the United States. It features a protected national park spanning 500,000 acres (202,343 hectares) and mesmerizing visitors with diverse natural beauty. No surprise, then, that the towns on these mountains make for majestic wedding locations, especially for those who love unspoiled nature.

If you’re planning a wedding amidst the Smokys, the National Park Service requires you to secure a Special Use Permit and charges a 50 USD application fee for hosting a ceremony on park grounds. There are also some guidelines and a list of approved locations. You also have to ensure you’ve got a marriage license from the right state and adhere to the respective marriage-related laws.

Looking for a picturesque place to get hitched amidst the mountains? Read on for the best Airbnb wedding venues near Great Smoky Mountains, United States!
