Thanks for a great wedding!
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.Sent on 10/31/2019

Unique, Memorable and Stress-Free Celebration
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-free for the couple. Hidden River delivered on all counts. I recommend anyone thinking of holding a wedding in Asheville, NC carefully consider Hidden River for their special day. We are glad we did.Sent on 10/30/2019

Wonderful, Genuine, Smooth Execution
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.Sent on 10/30/2019

We absolutely enjoyed filming at Hidden River. The staff was great & the location was great. It felt like they had so much to offer all hidden in the center of the beauty of our smokey mountains. A great spot for every wedding and event!
I have been servicing brides for hair and makeup for many years here and all of them where so pleased with the beauty and work that goes into this place.
We love working at Hidden River Events! The space is beautiful and the staff is so friendly. We hope you will check out this venue if you're searching in the Asheville or North Carolina area. Even if you're having a destination wedding, this staff is very professional and able to work well with you from a distance!
