Perfect Destination Wedding in Cades Cove

Have you ever dreamed of having your wedding pictures done in the Smoky Mountains National Park but unsure how to make that dream a reality? Well, our couple Skip and Catherine decided they wanted to make this happen. Family and friends joined Skip and Catherine for their wedding ceremony at Heartland Wedding Chapel in Townsend, Tennessee. Following the ceremony, they made their way to Cades Cove with us, ST Photography! We are one of the few licensed and permitted photographers to take your photos in the Smoky Mountains National Park.

The seven mile loop of Cades Cove gave Skip and Catherine so many stunning locations and perfect backdrops for their wedding day photos. They followed our car and we made stops along the way.

We visited a little chapel located on the loop for those sweet, intimate shots. This humble church gave us a few dry minuets till the sun shone once again.

Cute, genuine moments together were easily captured as these two made their way around the park.




Even posed photos were easily made their own just by feeling comfortable and happy in each others arms.


They even brought along some family members with them to share the experience and the beauty around them. CadesCove.STPhotography-7438

The kids really enjoyed the open spaces and animals around every corner.

We even had a herd of deer grazing behind everyone during the shoot.






So, if you are still thinking about a destination wedding and have considered Cades Cove or anywhere else in the Smoky Mountains National Park for your wedding photos, then look no further than ST Photography to capture those memorable experiences. We love taking photos in our National Park and would like to share this perfect location with you and your loved ones.  

We would like to thank Skip and Catherine for letting us be apart of their amazing day!
