Updated February 2nd 2018:

The wedding venue at Hiwassee River Weddings and events did open in May of 2017. When you scroll down you can see photos from the very first time I visited before anything was built.

I visited Hiwassee River Weddings and Events recently to see the progress being made. I met Bill, and I heard about his dream taking shape.  His overflowing enthusiasm and passion for this project is inspiring! He grew up in East Tennessee with a passion for the outdoors, hunting, and fishing. All of his life, he had worked for someone else and wondered what it would be like to invest all his time and energy into his own dream. When he first saw the property, he just knew there was something special about it.

One day he came to the point where he realized that he didn’t want to go through life and someday regret not going through with his dream of making the property into a wedding and event venue. It has been a dream of his for years to do something like this—something risky and something great, Bill knew this was going to be a lot of hard work, but today he is living his dream!

You can find Bill most days sawing logs—trees from his property—into beams for the timber frame event center or replying to a bride’s inquiry while sitting in a swing overlooking the Hiwassee River. He’ll gladly stop and show you around, from all that is completed to all that is in progress. He mentions “we” have cleared all of this land as he motions over to his Kubota tractor.
