About Hiwassee River Weddings and Events

Hiwassee River Weddings and Events is a hand crafted timber frame wedding & event venue/chapel that sits in the middle of our own enchanted forest and directly on the crystal clear Hiwassee River at the base of the Appalachian mountains in Delano, Tennessee, halfway between Knoxville and Chattanooga. Offering three ceremony sites to include a riverfront ceremony space, a forest ceremony site (that would make Bela blush on the Twilight Series) and a beautiful interior ceremony site that is climate controlled. This very shaded and private setting provides elegant backdrops for wedding ceremonies and photos. The family-owned private venue is situated on a 19-acre peninsula that resembles a private state park and is totally forested and enclosed by mature river oaks and loblollies, picturesque mountains, shaded woods, lush trees, and the Hiwassee River.

We are also honored to be featured on JuneBug Weddings Blog as well and several other publications to include the 2020 Winter edition of The Pink Bride Magazine and The BrideLink in TN just recently. Here is the link to the JuneBug Weddings Blog:

It offers various indoor and outdoor event spaces, including a 5,600-square-foot light and airy hand made timber-frame event center (made from trees on the property by owner himself) trimmed with custom iron work. With a climate-controlled interior, the event center features elegant vintage lighting and exposed wood beams which makes for a beautiful indoor reception and ceremony.

    A Beautiful Place for a Wedding

    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.
