Helton Creek Falls - Waterfall Wedding Location

A Spectacular Waterfall Wedding Location in North Georgia

Helton Creek Falls


Helton Creek Waterfalls  is our favorite Waterfall Wedding ceremony site if you are staying in  Blairsville, Hiawassee,  Blue Ridge, and Morganton in northernmost North Georgia towns!  




First, Helton Creek Falls is located on the northern side of Blood Mountain making it the closest falls to Hiawassee, Blairsville, Blue Ridge and Morganton.  


Second, there are actually  two locations at Helton  Creek Falls that are suitable for intimate weddings.   The Lower Falls work well for elopements and small weddings where the bride and groom want to get in the water for photos.  The upper falls feature a large observation deck allowing  for weddings of up to 25 guests.  This is our “go-to” location you have those considering  our Family Waterfall Package.  


Third,  the hike to the falls is fairly short (200 yards) and moderate in difficulty.   This makes it easy for most people to access the falls.  However, if anyone on your guest list is handicapped or has mobility issues be sure to talk to Rick and Cyndi so we can suggest other waterfall wedding locations for  you!  


And finally, this location is in the National Forest meaning there is no charge for using this site.
