Things to Know

Many times as you are making your plans to get married in the Great Smoky Mountains you are wondering not only what is there to do in this area, but what are the best things to do with your family and friends while you are in town. Your wedding day will only take one day so take the rest of your time in the Smokies to  stay and play!

The following are a few recommendations I have for the area. Please understand I do not get any compensation for mentioning the following companies, this is just my way to help you out while you are tying knot in our area!

old mill imageThe Old Mill, like it did almost 200 years ago, the giant water wheel harnesses the flow of the Little Pigeon River to power the mill.  Inside the structure, an antiquated yet reliable system of shafts, belts, and pulleys still gets the job done, working to turn the 4600-pound stones and grain elevators. With it’s history and great country style cooking this is a must eat when visiting the Great Smoky Mountains.
