Chapels of Love

Chapels of Love

What to write about on Valentine’s Day?  Smoky Mountain weddings!

Gatlinburg is second only to Las Vegas in the number of wedding ceremonies each year … around 10,000 for this small village near the Smoky Mountains. To accommodate all those weddings, Gatlinburg has quite a few chapels.  Many are located on Glades Rd, which is also home to the Arts and Crafts Loop. The image above was taken on a rainy night, and I had fun zooming the lens during a long exposure. Seems like a metaphor for the typical wedding experience!

Gatlinburg has so many weddings that it is not unusual to see a bride and groom in full attire down at Food City stocking up on groceries for their honeymoon.
