About

Chapel in the Hollow is a family owned and operated business — by Ian and Chastidyi. You will speak with one of us each time you email or call, and we will do our best to make you feel at home in our little slice of heaven.

This sweet little chapel is on a piece of private property near Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge which means you get to enjoy the best part of the Smokies without having to deal with tourists, strangers, permits, or government regulations.

Because this venue is owned by a photographer, the grounds are being cultivated with photography in mind, and you will have tons of gorgeous nooks and crannies to get amazing wedding images. Star Noir Photography (Chastidyi’s photography business) is our in-house photographer so that is the photography we include in our packages. However, you are more than welcome to bring an outside photographer if you prefer. Please see our FAQ page for more information on this. And, to make it an easy one-stop shop, Ian has been ordained by First Nation Ministries, the Universal Life Church, and American Marriage Ministries so he is our in-house officiant when available, but we have a network of other wonderful officiants if you would like us to bring in a different officiant. Questions about pricing? We have several options available on our Pricing Page and can create a custom option if you need something unique.

We have created Chapel in the Hollow to be an inviting space and a place that celebrates love in all of its many forms. Join us to start your fairytale in the Smokies!
