Hiking, Attractions, Dining, Adventure and more await those who visit the Smokies.
#2 Beauty. There are few more stunning natural backgrounds for your elopement getaway wedding than the Smoky Mountains. Sampson’s Hollow is located at the foot of the Cades Cove area of the Smokies and our century farm offers simply stunning vistas.
#4 Culture and History. Every bend of the road and curve in the mountain brings a special kind of vintage setting that can only be carved in to the mountains through hundreds of years. Celtic heritages, Farm history and oodles of romantics vows exchanged on our farm have made for a unique and one of a kind experience of culture in the Smokies.
#4 Affordability. Most of the adventure and fun one might have on their dream elopement and honeymoon wish list are quite affordable in the Smokies. Do you love to hike?

The Great Smoky Mountain National Park is a treasure we are fortunate to be a part of at Sampson’s Hollow.

Late autumn brings a special time at the farm. The colors of the trees and the mountain vistas create a backdrop that lasts well in to November. Indoor and outdoor weddings are held late in to the season as our southern temperatures allow, the red barn is a popular vow location as the season cools.
Trends in colors for late autumn include plums and purples, country apple colors along with hues of caramel and toffee. When it’s just the two of you we can help with flowers and decorations to make it a dream come true setting for your vow exchange.
Nature provides our backdrop and often great special touches. Talk with our coordinator about using pine cones, evergreens, winter berries, huckleberries and more for that special warm touch. We enjoy working with our couples to create that very romantic, story book setting just for you. A late autumn elopement to the farm in the Smoky Mountains can be so perfect for your wedding. Consider Sampson’s Hollow as part of your romantic story.
So you have considered eloping. The idea of a larger wedding feels overwhelming to you and you feel like an elopement might be just right for you. You are not alone. We often wonder how many couples actually consider elopement as one path to the dream wedding for them.
Is it the money they save?Elopements can save money. Our elopement packages are definitely money saving, however, not because they are less of a wedding, they simply involve fewer people.
Is it the secrecy? Many couples elope, and then tell their friends. Many may plan some type of celebration upon their return to help their friends and family celebrate the big event.
It’s the romance. Over and over again we hear it. It is the most romantic way to marry! Maybe it’s the secrecy. Maybe you spent more money on the honeymoon. What we hear is the fact that the vows that are exchanged, done between no one but you, make it the most romantic moment of your lives.
