    The Most Extraordinary Possible Venue/Staff/Experience: 10 out of 10

    To say that our wedding weekend at Hidden River Events was magical would be a drastic understatement; this place, and its people, are absolutely extraordinary. The all-inclusive but fully customizable planning structure makes it easy to get your day exactly right, with as little or as much outsourcing vendors as you like. What is included is amazing; horse drawn carriage, all the infrastructure, signage, etc was a list of both everything we needed, plus some really special extras.

    The farm is so stunning in every season, but especially on May when the side field had exploded into yellow buttercup blossoms and everything was green with spring. Our ceremony down at the River Cove was set to the background of the rushing water and bathed in dappled sunlight.

    We were blown away by the genuine love from each staff member, from the care they took to make each detail perfect, and the easy, calm energy with which everybody operated. It was unlike any wedding I've ever been part of in that we were all relaxed and having an amazing time from start to finish. Haley and Trevor were our Day of Coordinators and they were excellent, capable, and sweet. Ivy took us through the planning process with ease, and Anne's Custom Catering was extraordinary. The in house floral staff was incredible, and did a stunning job with our arrangements. Trust this team, they will not let you down.

    We're beyond grateful we found Hidden River. We can't imagine our wedding having taken place anywhere else.

    Wonderful 60-Person Wedding at Hidden River - April 2022

    Jeanne and her team at Hidden River were superb partners in helping me and my husband create our dream wedding. Jeanne is the owner of the property, and is warm, wise, and wonderful. She also served as our officiant, adding a very special touch to the wedding day. When you book a wedding at Hidden River, you get wedding planner support (thank you Grace and Ivy!), day of coordinator support, and access to some seriously amazing vendors that Jeanne has worked with for many years. All of our vendors were exceptional, including the catering, our photographer Erica Mueller, the bartenders (so great!!), the florist (more beautiful that I could have imagined). The property itself is simply gorgeous, and has a feel like you are out in the countryside, but is also very close to Asheville and Black Mountain, making it easy for your guests to explore the area. There are 7 houses on-site for your guests to stay, which was a major selling point for us. This allowed so many of our friends and family to stay on-site with us. I cannot recommend this venue enough, it was a fantastic experience planning and having our wedding here. We will cherish it forever, and we will have to come back for future anniversaries. Thank you Jeanne and team, from the bottom of our hearts. Allie & Stewart 4.16.22
