So lets talk about what an “Adventure Wedding” would entail… This is a smaller ceremony with just you, your finance and maybe a few family and friends who don’t mind exploring the wilderness with you. You can choose to bring a pastor or you can file the paperwork at the courthouse and say your vows on the mountain tops. You also don’t have to pay for an expense venue because most of these locations are free or a small fee. It is also eco-friendly!!

We can then choose a location that you would like as your back drop. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park  has so many amazing places to have the ceremony or there are a few other places that we love to go. The park requires not only that the photographer has a permit (which we do) but that the couple get a permit for the location as well.

Tent camping and Glamping are a great way to spend your honeymoon

Locations can be short hikes or we can go with our friends over at Smoky Mountain Guides on an overnight trip. They offer different options from tent camping to glamping! If you are feeling real adventurous in your wedding dress they have Kayak tours as well. This is a great way of combining your adventure wedding and making your honeymoon under the starts.

Be yourself and let loose in nature

Next thing to consider is what to bring. You will want to have a backpack to take with you with all your things. This may include your wedding clothes, if you chose not to wear them for the hike. Also, you may want a bouquet, your vows, shoes to change into, picnic, champagne, guitar, blanket, just married sign, water and snacks.

Once we have the perfect location and your bags are all packed we will make our way to your perfect wedding day spot for your adventure wedding, be in on a mountain top, waterfall, lake or field. There we will set up and let the ceremony begin. This will be your unique time to shine! You can let your creativity fly. Sing, Dance, Paint, or just simply say how much you love one another. Exchange rings, give your vows, and seal it with a kiss.
