Cades Cove

Cades Cove Wedding in the Smokies

Cades Cove Missionary Baptist Church Wedding

Cades Cove is the most visited area in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, so you can imagine how excited Bella and Brady were to travel from West Virginia to the smokies to get married in the historic white Missionary Baptist Church.

Moments before their wedding began, the sky opened up and it poured rain for a solid hour. Thankfully, the church is indoors and everyone was dry. The cove certainly didn’t let us down that day.

After their ceremony, we walked outside the church and saw a mother black bear with her two cubs casually walking through the forest. The mountains were covered in low lying fog lovingly referred to as the “smoke” of the Great Smoky Mountains. And butterflies fluttered around us in celebration of these two souls becoming one.

Cades Cove Weddings

Weddings in Cades Cove at the Missionary Baptist Church, Primitive Baptist Church, and other areas of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park are simple, beautiful and intimate. With the natural backdrop of the Smokies, there are many options for weddings in the forest, by the river, and on top of mountains with scenic views.

We are licensed Great Smoky Mountains National Park wedding photographers, capturing weddings and elopements in Cades Cove and throughout the national park including Spence Cabin, Greenbrier, and the Appalachian Clubhouse. If you’re interested in having a national park wedding, and you’re looking for Smoky Mountains photographers who have the required permit to photograph your wedding, contact us. We are a proud member of Smoky Mountain Photographers.
