Greenbrier Wedding in the Smoky Mountains

Gatlinburg Wedding at Greenbrier

Today, we’re thrilled to share Emily and Tim’s destination Gatlinburg wedding at Greenbrier. One of our favorite wedding locations in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Greenbrier is tucked away deep in the forest with the Little Pigeon River running through it.

Emily and Tim were engaged for 5 years, and the only thing holding them up was her dread of wedding planning. They knew they wanted an intimate wedding and thought the Smokies would be the perfect backdrop. She grew up camping and introduced him to it with their most memorable trip being in the Smokies.

So, when Emily reach out to us about her and Tim’s wedding and they were 4 months away from their wedding date, we jumped right in and helped plan the day they envisioned – on the banks of the river, hopping across rocks, exploring in the forest, and crying happy tears with their families.

Greenbrier Weddings in the Smokies

The Greenbrier area of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is on northern side of the park, and it is near Pittman Center just outside of Gatlinburg on the banks of the Little Pigeon River. It is generally not very crowded with less traffic. There are three wedding locations in Greebrier: #1, #2, and the picnic pavilion. The approved wedding ceremony locations are on the banks of the Little Pigeon River, and there is an abundance of beautiful backdrops for wedding photos including the river, forest, wooden bridges, and large rocks in the river.
