Hiwassee River Weddings

Hiwassee River Weddings and events is a venue located on the edge of the Hiwassee river and a few miles off of highway 411 in Delano TN.

Update 2019

The event hall is made from the trees on the property and can be used for both indoor ceremonies and or receptions. It’s always good to have a worry free PLAN B.

This riverside ceremony area is shaded with trees and has front row seat on the Hiwassee.

The Forest Ceremony area is even a great place for photos! Here in this photo is one of my favorite things to do on a wedding day: Embrace whatever kind of weather we get and make the most of it! We had had zero rain all day. And at the very end of the wedding day as the last guests were saying good bye it JUST started to RAIN!!!!

2016 The Beginning

In 2016 I visited Hiwassee River Weddings and Events 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 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!

During the construction you could 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 mentions “we” have cleared all of this land as he motions over to his Kubota tractor.
