In early 2015, Bill Collins decided to leave nearly 30 years in sales to pursue his dream of creating a wedding venue out of the family’s 19 acre beautiful riverside property. Bill, along with the support of his wife Janet and daughter Kellie, immediately starting working on making their dream a reality.
Bill spent nearly a year cutting down trees on the property, cutting logs to size on his sawmill, and preparing the wood for the building process. After much hard work, determination, planning, and pouring their lives into the business, the Collins family is so excited to finally see Hiwassee River Weddings and Events come to fruition. We can’t wait to see many couples have the biggest day of their lives at our property for many years to come.
