  • This was the best possible place to get married. The whole site is beautiful, we loved having the houses to stay in on site for everyone and all of the vendors were top notch! It made our wedding day so easy and carefree.

  • Hidden River is the perfect spot for every kind of wedding. That is what is so great about it. We had a small wedding with under 50 people. We rented all the houses for 2 nights and just stuck to the basics on decorating and flowers. The catch is...the basics are amazing! You don't have to spend an arm and a leg to make this place beautiful; it is naturally gorgeous. But if you want to spice things up, the staff is there to make that happen for you and exactly as you pictured it. All of their vendors are great to work with as well.

    Thank you so much for your kind review. We loved hosting your event and hope that you know that you have a home in the form of Hidden River for years to come. Our best to you both for a long and happy marriage!

  • First off, the setting is absolutely STUNNING! Jeanne and Grace are the easiest people to work with; they are so patient and helpful through the entire process. At Hidden River, they can make whatever you want happen. Their house caterer, makes the most incredible food. The florist is a gem. The photographer's pictures turned out better than I could've asked for. Everybody involved is just amazing which makes the big day even more special!

  • Not only was this a beautiful venue but the whole staff is amazing! I highly recommend the mountain elegance package! This included the houses for the weekend which slept up to 50 people as well as food, decor, flowers etc! Grace, and Jeanne made the whole wedding planning process a BREEZE!! No stress! They were very helpful and you can tell they truly care about their guest!! The rest if the HRE squad (Nigel the DJ, Neil the bartender and Paige event day hostess) WERE AWESOME! Their onsite florist does BEAUTIFUL work, my flowers were perfect! I also recommend their caterer Ann she makes the best food! Their fajita bar is to die for as well as there Tuscan chicken paired with green beans and potatoes! My guests even after a week are calling, texting telling us how wonderful the food was and venue in general, and that that was the best wedding they have ever attended! If you want a mountain venue this is the place to go!!!

  • We cannot say strongly enough how much we recommend Hidden River. They worked so well with us in every area. The food and cake were the best we've ever experienced at a wedding and it was beautiful. We had Jeanne officiate the wedding and it was perfect. The horse drawn carriage was a beautiful touch. There are several houses on the property and the entire wedding party and close friends and family stayed right on the site for the entire weekend. By the time the wedding actually occurred, everyone was relaxed and had the time of their lives. The wedding day coordinator was the final gem that made the day incredibly easy. Everyone commented on how relaxed we all were. That was because Hidden River took all the pressure off by doing it all! The all inclusive package is the way to go. We upgraded the food to prime rib and salmon etc., added the horse drawn carriage, and paid a little extra to be sure the flowers were specific colors and the day was perfect. The photographer also w... Read more

  • Planning from out of state, after never seeing the venue until a month before my wedding, needless to say i was worried. I personally worked mostly with Grace, but the whole team was extremely helpful. I trusted their opinions and was pretty go with the flow, and they exceeded all my expectations! The whole planning process was stress free, and the pictures truly don't do the venue justice! The tent is beautiful, and the floor and lighting doesn't feel "backyard tent" like at all. All my guests were taking and posting pictures of the beautiful views, and I'm so glad I also chose to have my Rehearsal Dinner up at the houses. I couldn't have asked for a better venue, and having the housing on site/bridal party getting ready houses definitely saved us in numerous situations! The price was unbelievable, and they were very flexible with substitutions (we wanted more bouquets than centerpieces, and they had no problem with this). I used them for flowers (BEAUTIFUL), food, cake, DJ, centerpie... Read more

  • We could not have been more pleased with how our wedding event turned out! Grace and Jeanne made the task of planning from another state a breeze! I asked A LOT of questions and they were all answered and in a timely manner. We knew when we toured HRE for the first time that this was our place! The grounds are beautiful and it was so helpful that they have housing on the property so all of our closest family and friends were able to be there with us and to spend some quality time together. The ONLY thing I was a little unhappy with was that we did not have Grace as our coordinator the day of the wedding. I knew she had put us in good hands but after working and communicating with her for so long I would have liked to have had her there. Regardless of that, our wedding day went perfectly! After horrible weather all weekend, the sun came out and the day was gorgeous! Everyone knew exactly why we chose HRE for our wedding. One of my favorite things about HRE is they provide sort of an "al... Read more

  • Of all the people we chose to help us with our big day, Jeanne at Hidden River Events was without doubt the best ! From the moment we first met her, we knew we'd found the ideal officiant for us. Warm, insightful, helpful, calm, funny, professional and magnificent are just some of the descriptors it would be accurate to apply. We couldn't imagine a better person to guide us through the happiest moment of our lives.

    Thank you so much for your kind words. It was an honor to share this time with you and your family and friends. You have so many wonderful days ahead of you as husband and wife. Treasure every one of them!

  • WOW. I don't know if I can adequately express the level of happiness and appreciation I have towards Hidden River Events. I had my wedding at this venue on 6/28/15 and every thing was absolutely perfect. This venue offers a wedding package that you can customize to your liking. If you go with the full package, they literally take care of everything (with your input on personalizing the event, of course). I truly felt like a guest at my own wedding. We didn't have to worry about setting up anything or taking anything down. When the reception was over, the staff brought our left over alcohol and food up to the cabin we were staying in (on site). Every single person that was working our wedding was extremely professional and caring and made me and my family feel like we were appreciated and that we were special. Jeanne, the owner, is one of the sweetest and loving people I have ever met. Jeanne officiated our wedding (included in the package) and did an outstanding job. I honestly wish I ... Read more

    Thank you so much for your kind words about us all. You were a joy to host and, though you certainly won't need to get married again, you are welcome to come back and visit us and relive your beautiful wedding as much as you can. We truly appreciate your friendship.

  • I absolutely loved Hidden River. They allow you to use their vendors or you have the option not to. The only thing I would do different is not use the photography vendor through them. The photographer we used (they have many others you could select so please look into each option of photographer!) was unresponsive at times and got turned around on timelines/plans which stressed me out a bit. Overall Hidden River was amazing though.... great food, the florist was AMAZING (Cynthia), and Jeanne and Grace were so wonderful and accommodating. Also you get the option of riding in on a horse and carriage....as my 11 year old cousin said....your only answer to coming in on a horse and buggy is yes or ABSOLUTELY! Highly recommend this venue!!

  • From the first email I sent inquiring about the venue & services until the end of our reception, the staff took care of us and made us feel like we were a part of their family. "Staff" doesn't even seem an appropriate word for the people we worked with over the months leading up to our wedding. Everyone that was involved in our wedding was so kind, warm. flexible, and professional. They did their jobs so well, but even more than that, they felt like family while they did it. We went with their Mountain Elegance Package which utilized all of their preferred vendors and were thrilled with the results. The food for the rehearsal and reception as well as out cakes (all prepared by Anne, their preferred caterer) are still being talked about (a month after our wedding)! We took advantage of the engagement photo session with Jesse Kitt, included in our package, and we instantly fell in love with Jesse. Her work is amazing and we felt so comfortable the whole time we worked with her. At HR, it... Read more

  • Our wedding at Hidden River Events was wonderful. The staff took care of every detail, and everyone really was free to enjoy themselves. It was so "easy" to plan my wedding from afar with the all-inclusive package, which still allowed us to make many choices and create exactly the event we wanted. They work with spectacular vendors (catering, photography, florist); I totally trusted that they would help make our day special - they absolutely did. The on-site lodging was also a great option for our out-of-town guests - they loved staying in such a beautiful location! Jeanne is a kind and sincere person - we loved her instantly, and she was the perfect person to officiate our very special ceremony. Not to mention the BEAUTY of the venue. The site is well-maintained and absolutely beautiful. I am so thankful for Hidden River Events!!

  • Beautiful setting but rustic and less than clean facilities. Extremely kind and helpful staff. Bathrooms are located too far from the party tent and they do not provide outdoor heaters for outdoor rehearsal dinner sites and those fall mountain nights get cold!

  • Excellent venue! Best part is you get exceptional vendors for your cake, photography, flowers, entertainment, officiant. Planning was a breeze. Jeanne officiated our wedding. Guests told us it was the best ceremony they had ever seen. She personalized the ceremony to reflect our love, took time to know us, and made our ceremony unique. Cynthia took care of flowers and centerpieces. I provided little direction, I knew it would be amazing. Flowers were bright, cheerful with a touch of whimsy. Bouquet stayed beautiful for over a week! The Greenliners as our band - although we missed most of the performance - we heard they were great! Jesse, the photographer, was AMAZING. She did an incredible job on our engagement shoot, and I know our wedding pictures will be fantastic too. The one change I would have made was an assistant to cut down on time needed for pictures. But this is no reflection on Jesse, she did an excellent job of capturing the event. My one complaint (and reason for 4 stars)... Read more
