 Rev. Ed Taylor - Founder of the Ministries

Reverend Ed Taylor has been a  church- ordained minister since 1958.  He was educated at East Tennessee State University, Tennessee Temple University, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth Texas, and received his doctorate from Emanuel University in North Carolina. 
Rev. Taylor is senior minister of Gatlinburg Ministries, a non profit Church  organization established almost 30 years ago with a mission to uphold traditional family values by conducting marriage ceremonies based on the biblical principle that marriage is a Divine institution. From a small marriage chapel, Rev. Taylor now oversees Gatlinburg's Little Mountain Church Village which includes three chapels, a biblical museum and a 200 seat Christian music concert hall. We will perform your Christian ceremony according to your affordability.

  The Ceremony
Each wedding is performed by a church ordained Christian minister in one of our three "Mountain Replica" chapels, nestled in the beautiful Smoky Mountains. The chapels are decorated with silk flowers and candelabra and have authentic wood-hewn  padded seats to create a unique and intimate setting for your ceremony. Our chapels, (made world famous by our "Little Mountain Chapel") seat up to 60 people and have 5 dressing rooms for your convenience. Our Bridal Chamber has mirrors and theatrical vanity lighting for those last minute touch-ups and a private restroom for your convenience. When you're ready, we escort  you into a comfortable waiting area for your personal rehearsal before entering the chapel.
