Cades Cove Wildlife Overlook Wedding
Sometimes we find new photo locations in the same areas we’ve been hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park for years. We go just a little further on a trail, or the river is low and creates a new water crossing, or a tree falls and creates a log we can walk across. For Holly & Jeff’s wedding in Cades Cove, all of these things happened, and we found ourselves right in the middle of a beautiful new area to explore with them!
Cades Cove Wildlife Overlook
The Cades Cove Wildlife Overlook is the most popular outdoor ceremony location in Cades Cove with sweeping scenic views across the cove with the smoky mountains rising tall as your backdrop. This location is not clearly marked, but it is located 0.5 miles past the Missionary Baptist Church on the left. There is a narrow trail you can walk down for a 180-degree panoramic view of the mountains in the background for your ceremony. It’s also away from the parking lot, so it reduces the traffic noise and number of onlookers.
