LOCATED DIRECTLY ON THE HIWASSEE RIVER AT THE BASE OF THE MOUNTAINS.
IT’S ALWAYS A MAGICAL DAY AT HIWASSEE RIVER WEDDINGS
Our beautiful 19 acre peninsula, surrounded on three sides by water with 1,300 feet along the crystal clear Hiwassee River, provides the solitude and privacy to make your event unforgettable.
Events at Hiwassee River Weddings tell your story and reflect your personality and entertaining vision. Weddings are one of our specialties, and our venue was designed with attention to detail and craftsmanship. Our capacity is 150 for weddings and 20-150 for private events.
Such a river is the Hiwassee,
with its surface broken to a thousand
sparkling gems, and its forest walls vine
draped and flowery as Eden.
And how fine the song it sings.
Taken from John Muir’s journal – September 19th 1867
Say your vows surrounded by the beauty of trees, without needing to venture far from civilization. For those couples looking for a more outdoorsy option for their ceremony, they can choose our Forest Ceremony Site adjacent to the reception hall that’s still within site of the Hiwassee River.
The space has a custom built wooden platform for the vow exchange and custom wooden bench seating for 150.
Strings of Edison bulbs are suspended above and between the majestic loblollies so the space can be used for day or night events. Our forest ceremony site would even make Bella from the Twilight Series blush.
The event venue can accommodate up to 150 guests. Also in case of rain can be used as an an indoor ceremony space.
“Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”
