Hiwassee River Weddings and Events is a hand crafted timber frame wedding & event venue/chapel that sits in the middle of our own enchated forest and directly on the cystal clear Hiwassee River at the base of the applalachian mountains in Delano, Tennessee, halfway between Knoxville and Chattanooga. Offering three ceromony sites to include a riverfront ceremony space, a forest ceremony site (that would make Bela blush on the Twilight Series) and a beautiful interior ceromony site that is climate controled. 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 just recently. Here is the link:

Out of town weddin
My nephew and his bride are from two different towns and were looking for something halfway between their hometowns. They found this venue and booked it after a FaceTime tour with the owner Bill. The venue is breathtaking and the staff is amazing. Every detail was attended to and they made you feel like family. The planner Christine saw to all the little things that made the wedding run like clockwork. The bride and groom had a perfect wedding. Pictures do not begin to do justice to the beauty of the venue. Amazing!!!!!!Sent on 07/22/2019
