  • Hiwassee River Weddings and Events gave us the most picture perfect wedding day we could have imagined. The scenery there is incredible, and pictures could never do it justice. It was the first venue we visited and we ended up calling Bill on the road home to book with him because it was just perfect! The team there is even better! Bill, the owner, is truly the kindest person, and he goes above and beyond to make sure couples are getting everything they need and want. He even held up a curtain for me to hide behind to run outside so that no guests would see me as I was preparing to walk down the aisle! The wedding planner Liz also took care of everything so seamlessly that we did not even have to think about anything except seeing each other and saying "I do." In the midst of a global pandemic AND a thunderstorm on our wedding day, we felt so taken care of and safe in the hands of Hiwasseee River Weddings and their team. You'll also have SO many options for places to take photos! T... Read more

  • HRW offers different ceremony locations. My daughter chose the wooded area for her ceremony but the river area was just as beautiful. And had it rained, we couldn't go wrong with the indoor location. Our guests are still commenting on how beautiful the WHOLE venue was and how good the food was. Bill was wonderful to work with. I really appreciate the kind words he wrote to my daughter as she had to reschedule her date due to the shut down from the pandemic. As the mother of the bride (and from out of town) , I highly recommend the all- inclusive Blueway Package. The Starr Mountain Lodge was the PERFECT set up for our family of eight. It was beautiful and contained high-end amenities. You won't be disappointed. It was stocked with everything that you would possibly need. I'm so glad that I had booked an extra night at the lodge. It was a chance for us to just relax and enjoy family. Thanks to HWR for making my daughter's dream wedding a reality.

    Folks like you are the reason I am in this business. I have been blessed beyond measure to have meet you all. Double blessed on top on that to have Caroline and Taylor get married at our place. Thank you so much for the kind words and business. Regards, Bill

  • Hiwassee has my heart forever. Between the river and forest, this entire venue will take your breath away. We purchased the all inclusive Blueway package and that also includes a massive cabin for the weekend. Liz, the wedding planner is AMAZING!!! The only thing we paid outside of the package was photography and videography. The owner Bill will go above and beyond to make your day everything you ever dreamed of. The venue has a river side ceremony and forest. We chose the forest side and had a fire pit down by the river. I would get married here again in a heart beat!

  • Bill was a joy to work with from the first email. We feel in love with a picture of the forest site and never looked back. The venue feels like home, it's beautiful, spacious, and intimate all at the same time. The combination of river and tall trees is like nothing you can find elsewhere. I've recommended this venue (and owner) to friends and family already, you won't be disappointed!

    My Friend you are famous!! Your wedding video is something else as the love you have for Jamie is too. I am so glad our wakes crossed. Thanks for the great review. Bill

  • In the summer of 2020, I was able to marry the best man I have ever met - and was promoted to his wife. I had the most fun with my bridesmaids and family getting ready for the big day at this venue - the rooms were great for setting the tone for the day. The venue, Hiwassee River Weddings, was in such a charming location and was set-up in a way that made the event so special. From the reception building to the multiple ceremony cites, the entire property was lovely and helped complete the look that my family and I had in mind. The owner was nothing but encouraging, kind, and helped whenever needed. Our wedding went smoothly without the anticipated stress, and I want to give credit to this venue for that as well as making us feel special with their attentiveness and care. We are so glad that we chose such a genuine team and location for our wedding.

  • I honestly couldn’t imagine our wedding at another place in the world. Bill’s venue brought our vision to life and was the most perfect venue for us to say “We do” with our family and friends. Bill was beyond accommodating from the day we toured his venue till our final exit. I am forever thankful our paths crossed with his to make our day so perfect. Sweet Bill felt more like family by our wedding day then just the owner of the venue.

    Oh my Madison...sweetest review in the world. How I adore you and AJ. I look forward to talking with you more when the time is right. Thanks for getting this review in this year!!! I love those pictures and cant wait to see them AND see your wedding featured in the Pink Bride Magazine. Yikes!!!! Your the BEST!!! Bill

  • My nephew and his bride are from two different towns and were looking for something halfway between their hometowns. They found this venue and booked it after a FaceTime tour with the owner Bill. The venue is breathtaking and the staff is amazing. Every detail was attended to and they made you feel like family. The planner Christine saw to all the little things that made the wedding run like clockwork. The bride and groom had a perfect wedding. Pictures do not begin to do justice to the beauty of the venue. Amazing!!!!!!

    Ahhhhh. Thank you Christine. You all felt like family to us too. So happy everbody had a great time for DJ and Jeremy’s wedding In TN. Thank you again.

  • Bill has created a venue in a place that is very special to my husband and I. Him and his staff were dedicated to our wedding equally, if not more, than we were. We are a laid back couple that just wanted a beautiful setting in the woods to gather with our loved ones and they provided just that. I especially love that there are so many options on the property for photos and ceremony sites that are comfortable even in late July due to the tree coverage, river breeze, and top-notch air conditioning. The reception building is absolutely stunning and requires very little decoration for the minimalists, but can be embellished and not look overdone for the more extravagant vision. His staff was devoted to responsible festivities and guest safety was a top priority. This is a great place to have a wedding with a wholesome owner who will go out of his way to provide a picture-perfect wedding day!

    Erica and Clark you two were a dream couple to us and still are. I look forward to seeing you again for your anniversary photos on the river with you dog as well. Thanks a million for such a nice review. Love Bill

  • Our wedding at HRW was an incredible experience with memories galore for the years to come. Bill and his team will allow and assist with most (reasonable) request. We had plenty of access ahead of time along with many opportunities for phone calls and email responses well before the actual date. Fun Fact: they have multiple options for ceremony venues and the reception space fit our 120 person wedding easily.

    Thank You Tate. I am so thrilled at folks responses on their experience here. Icing on the cake for me. Merry First Christmas!!!
