  • The Hidden River team is INCREDIBLE. They worked together smoothly and made everything feel easy. We had the case of r-a-i-n and they handled it so well as we had to pivot an hour before the ceremony. They didn't pressure me/us in any direction but was clearly taking all the right precautions and giving me a real understanding of what each decision would entail and the implications. Of course, the decision was challenging but ultimately was 100% the right one! Jeanne (the owner of hidden river) officiated our ceremony and it was perfect. She is truly magical. We received more compliments than we could have ever imagined about how special the ceremony was. We had friends saying they took notes during the ceremony and we received a message from another friend saying that she and her partner are bringing home some things they learned from our weekend to work on as a couple. The moment that we stopped for the rain stood out to everyone under the tent as you created a space that slowed ... Read more

  • My sweetheart and I helped his son and daughter-in-law with wedding logistics as local liaisons since they live out of state. Our first visit to Hidden River had us sold. The owner, Jeanie Sommer guided us through the beautiful venue and explained the many personally designed features available to suit just the wedding they wanted. The setting was ideal, with accommodations for many of their out of town friends and guests as well as the couple themselves. Every request we made was met with good natured cooperation. The staff reflected Jeanie’s desire to make the wedding the best possible for all involved. Many of the 135 guests told us it was the best wedding they had ever attended, and we agree. We were pleased with every aspect and are recommending Hidden River to anyone who asks.

  • My son and his wife selected Hidden River in Swannanoa, NC for their wedding and reception. Both they and I could not be more pleased with every aspect of their special day. Hidden River offers a unique setting – couples along with dozens of their closest family members and friends stayed in the houses that are included as part of the wedding package. The ceremony and reception take place out of doors. The setting of course is beautiful. But what most impressed me was the professionalism and attention to detail that everyone at Hidden River demonstrated in the months leading up to the wedding, the days before the wedding that we stayed at the venue and of course the day of the wedding. Everything went flawlessly. Special requests were greeted with smiles and promptly executed. When we were selecting a venue, owner Jeanne Sommer said that her goal is to make every wedding something that will be unique, something that will be memorable and something that will be enjoyed, stress...

  • It almost feels impossible to sum up what an amazing experience it was to have our wedding at Hidden River. We had an intimate wedding (16 guests) on a Monday evening and it was PERFECT. The planning process from start to finish: Excellent communication, accommodating, easy. Every person I interacted with, whether staff of Hidden River or a hired vendor, was incredibly kind, talented, and delightful to work with. And of course, the beauty and peace of the location felt unmatched. I got the wedding of my dreams without 90% of the stress (I don't think you can take 100% of the stress out of any wedding planning, but HRE gets as close as possible). Our wedding was so wonderfully perfect, I would HIGHLY recommend the experience to anyone.

  • So weddings are stressful beyond my fathoming. Hidden River's a'la carte selecting and pricing made designing our wedding simple. Our contacts for planning were super responsive and flexible. Definitely not a canned wedding experience. Real humans working with us to plan our special day. We even got to host an axe-throwing competition after our rehearsal lunch! So cool. Come wedding day, the execution was absolutely flawless. Our friends have been to many weddings, and then some, but couldn't say enough about how well the evening went. Even a month later, we're getting unsolicited praise for how our wedding was so genuine and lovely. Oh man...can't say enough good things so I'll leave it here.

  • This was the first and only venue we visited. The views, options, accommodations, hospitality, professionalism, execution, etc. made it all more than worth it. Plus, having the ability to consolidate multiple vendors through a single source- HRE make it even more incredible. Their COVID precautions were the icing on the cake- pun intended. We could not be happier with our decision to get married at Hidden River, Jeanne and her team are amazing and we couldn't be more grateful to them for making our wedding day the best, most beautiful and special day of our lives. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! with so much love, Casey & Marissa

  • Our wedding weekend for our daughter at Hidden River was spectacular. The property itself is beautiful and the entire staff is very professional and very thorough. The carriage ride to the ceremony is an experience I will never forget! The food at the reception was world class and the new farm tables and chairs were very beautiful Great value with the ability to sleep on site. My wife and I highly recommend Hidden River to any couple looking for an amazing wedding weekend!

  • We fell in love with Hidden River from the moment that we stepped foot on the property. We really wanted a wedding that was a weekend getaway in addition to the special celebration. Hidden River's onsite housing allowed us to do just that and everyone had such a great time (including a rousing game of ultimate frisbee the next day after hiking!) The wedding itself was beyond what I could have imagined. Amidst the craziness of COVID we had to reschedule our wedding and somehow Jeanne, Grace and their team still managed to pull off the wedding of our dreams. The onsite vendors are top notch, and they were able to execute perfectly on what I was looking for with rather minimal direction. Everyone raved about the food, and the florals were AMAZING. The venue itself is beautiful and the decorations they provide make it so that you have to bring minimal items with you . We planned the wedding from out of state in Florida and the wedding planning process (minus COVID) was stress-free wh... Read more

  • Words cannot express how beautiful our wedding was at Hidden River. I will try my best to summarize my experience. In the first 5 minutes of our visit to Hidden River, we knew this was where we wanted our biggest adventure yet to begin. Meeting Jeanne and seeing the passion she has for Hidden River and the constitution of marriage sealed the deal that this would be our place. Grace was fantastic throughout the entire planning process with her quick responses and always having a way of making me feel not so crazy over my countless emails and questions. As we got closer to our big day, everything came together so seamless. We rented the houses on property so our closest family and friends could be there together in this celebration. What a great touch to an already great occasion. Now fast forward to the day of- the flowers were breathtaking, the FOOD oh my goodness was delicious! Alex our DJ was fantastic and Daniella our day of coordinator was so attentive and helped keep my ne... Read more

  • There aren’t enough words to describe the magic experience that Hidden River offers. It made for the best and most perfect wedding weekend. Everything about the experience was ideal and these are special moments we’ll carry for the rest of our lives. It’s truly ethereal.

  • We were married at Hidden River Events last month. Both my husband and I feel that our wedding was even more intimate and special than we could have imagined! All of the HRE team are professional, experienced, accommodating and KIND. They truly go out of their way to make sure the wedding party and all guests enjoy themselves and worry about nothing! We were so impressed by the responsiveness during the planning process and the wedding day. Our planner, Grace, was always reassuring and stayed on top of every selection or plan that we had. Annette was our day-of-coordinator and she was amazing! The flowers were AMAZING, grown on site and arranged so beautifully by Megan! We were thrilled with all of them. We chose to use a couple of vendors we had relationships with and HRE was completely flexible. We really were pleased with the caterer and DJ who were partners of HRE. The entire venue is beautiful! We were able to host most of our guests for the weekend right on the property. This all... Read more
