Q. When can we get an engagement photo session done?
A. Engagement photo sessions that are included in your package must be done at least three months before your wedding date. The complimentary sessions in our wedding packages are designed for marketing and must be utilized before this time period. This allows one month for your photos to be in editing. Engagement photo sessions may be purchased at an $125 sitting fee if you would like to personally add this session.
Q. I have my own photographer taking engagement photos/wedding photos. Can we still receive the complimentary Save the Date and Thank You cards?
A. The engagement photo sesion, Save the Date and Thank You Cards are only complimentary if Gatlinburg Photo is doing the engagement and wedding photography. There are no exceptions.
Q. Can we bring our own minister/photographer to perform the ceremony?
A. You may bring your own minister to perform your ceremony. Because Flower Mountain is owned by a master photographer, we do not allow outside photography or cinematography during the wedding ceremony and photo sessions. This is strictly enforced.
Q. Are guests allowed to take their own photos of the ceremony and photo sessions?
A. See above.
Q. Can we bring our own flower girl petals?
A. Yes, however, all flowers that aren't going to be cleaned up must be real and not silk. Since silk flowers must be picked up, it's not pratical.
Q. Do you provide marriage licenses'?
A. No. You must purchase your marriage license yourself. You must obtain a Tennessee state-marriage license and once your obtain it, it is only good for thirty days. Many of our couples pre-apply online to make this process easier. Please consult the marriage license portion of your contract pages for complete information.
Q. Are the marriage license offices always open?
A. No. All offices are closed on Sundays. Most marriage license offices in Tennessee counties are only open Monday-Friday from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm. However, the county of Sevier has two extension offices that are open on Saturdays during specified hours. Please be advised, that holiday seasons and election days do affect hours of operation. Please contact the courthouses directly for complete and accurate information.
Q. How long will it be before I can see my wedding photos?
A. Images are almost always available overnight.
Q. Is minister/photographer gratuity included in pricing?
A. No. The giving of gratuities is a long standing tradition & rightly so. A minister holds such a special place in your wedding day and is usually not compensated as well as he should be. It is the couples responsibility to set aside an offering for such a service. The photographers gratuity is also not included in your packaging price. The same rule applies. This is customary and should be observed.
Q. What is the order of wedding services?
A. If you are providing ushers, they are responsible for seating honored guests in this order: the groom's grandmother, the bride's grandmother, the groom's parents and bride's mother. The bridal processional will begin; minister and groom enters with groomsmen, then bridesmaids enter, one at a time; matron of honor enters, then the ring bearer and flower girl; then the bride and her father or escort enter. Typically, the minister announces to rise for the bride, opening remarks and giving of the bride. Guests will be instructed by minister to be seated. Then the minister will say a short prayer; charge to bride and groom; exchange of vows and rings; pronouncement then kiss; prensentation of couple with recessional.
Other ceremonies can be added in addition, for example: unity candle or sands service, dove release and family bonds.
