Consider the weather in Nashville for your elopement.
We think the best time to visit for your Nashville wedding/elopement is from April to October because of the gorgeous sunny weather. And when the sun shines, Music City comes alive! There are more activities such as downtown Nashville rooftop bars with skyline views, hiking and biking, swimming, and outdoor music events and festivals.

Places to Elope in Tennessee
Nashville elopement packages are available for couples who want to plan a small, intimate event with their loved ones.
Small Wedding Venues in Tennessee
If you’re looking for a small wedding venue in Tennessee, we have plenty of them to choose from. If you want the best of both worlds and would like an intimate ceremony with all the bells and whistles of a larger event, we have packages that will provide the perfect setting for your Tennessee elopement.
Elopement Photography Packages
Elopement photography is a great option for couples who want to get married without the fuss and expense of a big wedding. The best part is that elopement photography can be done anywhere, at any time of year.
The most important thing to keep in mind when planning your elopement is that it should be a reflection of you as a couple. If you are having an intimate ceremony with only family and a few friends, then your elopement should reflect that. If you are having a large ceremony with all of your family and friends present, then it is perfectly acceptable to have a larger scale elopement.
We Eloped Nashville: Nashville Wedding and Elopement Photographers
When you’re looking for Nashville elopement packages, it’s important to know that there are many different types of weddings and budgets. You can be traditional or nontraditional with your wedding, and you can still have the ceremony at a church, courthouse, or other location.
Here are the less-than-exciting legal details about eloping in TN including your marriage license.
Before you elope in Nashville, make sure you know the legal requirements to elope at your Nashville Tennessee destination. We recommend that you get the legal stuff done before you get hitched, like your marriage license.
You don’t have to be a resident of Tennessee to wed here.
So if you’re traveling to Tennessee for a destination wedding or elopement, you can handle the legal details right here in Nashville. So if you decide to obtain your marriage license in Nashville, keep reading. Before you go to the County Clerk’S office to make it official, you must fill out a marriage license application online. Both parties must appear together at the County Clerk M-F from 9-5 PM and prove that they are 18 or older in order to get approved for a marriage license.
The fee for a marriage license is $99.50 as of 2022.
But if you complete a premarital course within a year of your marriage application, you can save $60. We recommend taking the premarital preparation course for your relationship’s health – counseling is not just for couples who bicker or are having trouble. It’s a great way to air out the stress of marrying or eloping in Nashville, along with other concerns or thoughts.
Who should elope in Nashville?
We think everyone should elope in Nashville (at Legacy Farms), but hey, we may be a little bit biased. Eloping in Nashville is ideal for couples who want a small wedding to forgo the stress and expense of a traditional wedding ceremony and reception and enjoy Nashville as a destination vacation for the culture, music, and food.
Some couples are looking for elopement/wedding packages because they want a more intimate way to tie the knot. Some are concerned with price. Or maybe you just didn’t want your Uncle Hank (the wannabe professional photographer) turning his flash while reciting your wedding vows. Whatever your needs, your elopement/small wedding is all about you and your partner.
What are elopement packages?
Elopement packages are typically all-inclusive packages offered by wedding venues. Affordable elopement packages should include everything you want and need for a small wedding, whether it’s just you and your spouse, along with a witness or a small handful of loved ones. $5,000 is a “sweet spot” small wedding budget that many couples come to us for. Affordable elopement packages are like a condensed version of all-inclusive wedding packages so that all you need to do is say, “I do.”
Elopements in Tennessee: The Location Matters

How much does an elopement cost?
Packages at any venue in Nashville can range from $500-$20,000, depending on what’s included.
An elopement in Pigeon Forge or the Great Smoky Mountains will cost differently than one in Chattanooga, Nashville, or Memphis. It all depends on where your perfect location and the perfect venue are.
What’s the real difference between a small wedding and elopements in Tennessee and a “regular” Tennessee wedding?
The definition of elopement has changed so much over time! Traditionally, elopements meant running off and getting married without telling anyone, especially your family. The technical definition is “to run away secretly to get married, especially without parental consent,” but these days, it’s taken on a bit of a different meaning.
Nowadays, many people use the terms “elopements,” “tiny weddings,” “intimate weddings,” and “small weddings” interchangeably.
To many, it may just mean a smaller price/less expensive wedding or to forgo a formal wedding and only host a ceremony with no reception. Maybe you just want to simply elope! It’s okay to call it that, but it’s technically just a small wedding.
Some want to elope in Nashville and include very few guests and still host a reception.
Others may see it as a more comfortable, less stressful option where you get to do your ceremony exactly how you want without family input or stress. And even more confusing, some who are already married and looking to do a vow renewal are googling “elopements”.
Nashville elopements are available at some wedding venue sites.
