Cataract Falls, a Tennessee small wedding venue

Cataract Falls

Cataract Falls is by far one of the easiest places to hike into in The Great Smoky Mountain National Park area. A flat, 10-minute walk from the visitor’s center (which is about a 3-minute drive from downtown Gatlinburg), pretty much any one of any age should be able to get to this spot. This is a nice and easy spot for an elopement. Just be warned, this is a highly public and there will definitely be on-lookers and potential applauders. Not for the shy of heart. Permit needed.

Maloney Point, a Tennessee small wedding venue

Maloney Point

We titled this spot ‘Little River Lookout’ because it’s an unmarked area. Right off the road en route to Cade’s Cove, this spot is about an 11-minute drive past the visitor’s center. There are about 10 parking spots and really darling spots to get eloped right next to the creek. While there are no travel fees for this spot, permit still necessary. Best for ceremonies with 10 guests or less.
