Same-Sex LGBT Weddings

While the Smoky Mountains, as part of what’s known as “The Bible Belt”, occasionally gets a reputation for being part of the “deep” South only the traditional lifestyles are welcomed, the fact of the matter is that our area welcomes people of all races, religions, creeds and sexual orientations and that means, yes, you can have a same-sex wedding here.

Granted, the area being what it is, it’s not guaranteed that all the wedding providers in our area provide same-sex wedding services. That’s why, for this page, we would like to list wedding providers in the Smoky Mountains who will be receptive to LGBT couples.
