Most couples rent a cabin or vacation rental when they visit North Georgia for an Elopement or Intimate Wedding.  So instead of going to a wedding chapel in Helen Ga why not get married at your cabin?  

We maintain a list of cabins and vacation rentals that are suitable for your small wedding throughout North Georgia.  Tell us how many guest you are expecting and a little about your vision for the wedding.  For example, are you looking for a ceremony on a lake or river?  Or, would you prefer a scenic mountain view?   What area of North Georgia would you prefer?  We factor in all these variables and recommend cabins and vacation rentals that fit your needs.   

And, we do all of this without charge to you!   We do not accept commissions from the cabins we recommend.  Instead we make living by providing ministers and photos for your wedding.

Please note:  Most cabin and vacation rentals limit the number of guests at your wedding to the sleeping capacity at your rental.  In other words please do not ask to have a wedding for 25 guests at a cabin that only sleeps four.  If you expect 25 guests your cabin needs to be able to sleep 25 guests  Otherwise, you run into parking issues and adverse wear and tear on the property.
