Sevier County, TN is a popular wedding destination, in fact over 10,000 weddings are held here each year!  There is a venue for every style and budget, from an elaborate church wedding to a rustic streamside ceremony.  One of the reasons this area is so popular is because of the beauty that surrounds us which lends itself to great wedding pictures.  Another reason is the process to obtain a license is quick and inexpensive.  There are 3 locations to obtain a valid Tennessee Wedding License:
