6 Steps for Planning an Unforgettable Gatlinburg Cabin Wedding
With the majestic backdrop of the Great Smoky Mountains and the intimacy of your home away from home, there is nothing quite like a Gatlinburg cabin wedding. Planning your big day with Stony Brook Cabins is easy when you follow these six simple steps:
1. Pick the Perfect Cabin
The first step for planning your wedding is to pick the right cabin for your needs. If you want a small ceremony with a few close friends and family members, consider renting one of our romantic one bedroom cabins in Gatlinburg. However, if you plan on inviting a larger group of guests, you can rent a spacious cabin with five or more bedrooms. A big vacation rental also gives you the option of hosting your reception right in your cabin. Browse through our listings to find the ideal cabin for your dream wedding.
2. Obtain Your Marriage License
Although you do not have to be a resident of Sevier County or the state of Tennessee to get married at Stony Brook Cabins, be sure to obtain your marriage license in plenty of time for your ceremony! You can get your marriage license in person at two convenient locations, the Sevier County Courthouse in Sevierville or the Satellite Clerk Office in Gatlinburg. In addition, Sevier County maintains an online marriage license office. On this website, you can complete and submit an online pre-application for a marriage license if you are getting married in Gatlinburg within 30 days.
Stony Brook Cabins works with two excellent ministers in the Gatlinburg area, Alden Marshall and Brian Tippit, who are completely dedicated to addressing your personal desires and needs. Both ministers would be happy to make arrangements to perform a ceremony in the privacy of your cabin. You can arrange to speak to one of our ministers before your ceremony, or they can simply show up at the appointed time. Both Alden Marshall and Brian Tippit have received glowing reviews from couples, and either minister is available for just $150.
4. Finalize Your Guest List
Another important step for planning your Gatlinburg cabin wedding is to decide who you would like to invite. Once your guest list has been planned out, you can book vacation rentals for your guests at Stony Brook Cabins. Your guests will be delighted to enjoy our luxurious cabins with beautiful mountain views, deluxe amenities, and comfortable accommodations. Our larger cabins have space for 15 – 26 people, so your guest can save money by staying together as a group.
5. Add a Photography Package
You will want to capture every moment of your unforgettable cabin wedding, so take advantage of our professional photography packages that start at just $75! We work with a photographer named Don who has years of professional experience. Don will work directly with you to ensure that he captures all the details of your magical ceremony so that you can remember your big day for years to come. He will be happy to help you select the best package that meets your budget and expectations.
A wedding is not complete without a few special touches, and Stony Brook Cabins can accommodate nearly any request for your ceremony! We offer beautiful and delicious cakes that are made from scratch, as well as a variety of stunning wedding bouquets. In addition, we can arrange any other type of specialty baskets or gifts that you desire. For a truly unique wedding stay at Stony Brook Cabins, we can provide side by side massages from a professional massage therapist in your cabin, or you can even have a gourmet dinner delivered to your cabin.
