Primitive Baptist Church | Cades Cove Wedding

Congratulations to this wonderful couple who wed in the Primitive Baptist Church in Cades Cove.  Cades Cove, in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, is the perfect location for a wedding.  Cades Cove offers such beautiful backgrounds for portraits after the ceremony.

A prayer with your future spouse and the love of a dad before the ceremony is special to the bride and groom.

The groom is tickled to see his bride coming down the isle of the Primitive Baptist Church to become his wife.

Having two certified professional photographers at a wedding is a must to capture views of the bride when the area is too small to walk around in without interrupting the view of the guests.

Primitive Baptist Church is such a beautiful historic place to have a wedding ceremony.  Capturing the perfect moments during the ceremony is what we strive to do at each wedding.
