From the nightlife excitement of Memphis and Nashville to cozy cuddling opportunities in the Smoky Mountains, Tennessee has plenty of options for honeymooners and romantic travelers. At the gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the town of Gatlinburg is often called the Wedding and Honeymoon Capital of the South, filled with wedding chapels, romantic cabins, and small resorts.

Reception Venues Near Graceland The most famous voice of Tennessee is that of Elvis Presley and, for many couples, a visit to Memphis is not complete without a tour of Graceland, once home to the town’s most famous resident. Although Elvis Presley’s famous home is open for guided tours, it is not available for private functions including weddings and receptions–but you will find many venues close by including the Graceland Mansion Chapel in the Woods!
