"Be a guest at your own wedding." That's how our couples describe their experience with us. Our complete wedding packages are just that: truly complete. All you need to add, in order to have a lovely wedding is your invitations and your alcohol, if you so choose. Plus, our Saturday packages already include on-site housing for 40-50 people, comfortably. Make yours a truly destination wedding with multiple days in beautiful Asheville, NC.

Receptions occur in our nearly 700sf artisan tent, with all lighting and decor included. Choose from five different ceremony sites: a river, a pond, a sycamore tree, several gardens, an open field. Know from the moment of contract signing what the total end cost of your wedding will be. We have no hidden fees, just a hidden river tucked in a beautiful valley just 15 minutes from the heart of downtown Asheville.

If your event is less than 50 people, you qualify for our special small wedding pricing. Whatever the size of your event, everything is included: all infrastructure, labor to set up and take down, food, flowers, dessert, photography, DJ, event coordination, day of event management, horse carriage and driver, golf cart and driver. Couples can upgrade and customize the package, but even with the basic package, there are still many ways to add your unique signature.

Working with Hidden River Events made planning this wedding extremely easy. While planning I was living out of state in MN and not having to deal with the multiple vendors kept my stress level very low. Grace and Paige are pros at making sure you have every detail covered. The caterer, Anne's Catering, makes the most incredible food and puts innovative twists to typical southern recipes. In addition, it was a blast to rent out the houses on the property and have the wedding party on site the entire weekend. I would highly recommend using Hidden River to any bride looking to get married in Asheville, NC.

I hosted 50 people for my wedding at Hidden River this weekend. Wow! What an incredible weekend. Honestly, even the day before the wedding I found myself wondering why people spend so much on a day (and Hidden River is way more value for your investment than so many other venues). Now, there is no doubt in my mind; weddings are an incredible way to celebrate a transformative moment with your friends and family! Hidden River over-delivered and my guests had an amazing time. All night I received compliments on the venue, the ceremony, the DJ, the food, the flowers. If you want to come be a guest at your own wedding (instead of a Bridezilla); if you want your mom and sisters relaxing, drinking champagne in the bridal suite, and wondering if they should be doing anything; if you want to be surrounded by kind, sweet staff on your wedding day--Hidden River is for you! I loved planning my wedding with Jeanne and Grace (they literally were my favorite people to get emails from for months), and the day of the staff was exceptional. I absolutely love Hidden River and my only regret is that I had to eventually leave!

Hidden River is the perfect spot for every kind of wedding. That is what is so great about it. We had a small wedding with under 50 people. We rented all the houses for 2 nights and just stuck to the basics on decorating and flowers. The catch is...the basics are amazing! You don't have to spend an arm and a leg to make this place beautiful; it is naturally gorgeous. But if you want to spice things up, the staff is there to make that happen for you and exactly as you pictured it. All of their vendors are great to work with as well.

First off, the setting is absolutely STUNNING! Jeanne and Grace are the easiest people to work with; they are so patient and helpful through the entire process. At Hidden River, they can make whatever you want happen. Their house caterer, makes the most incredible food. The florist is a gem. The photographer's pictures turned out better than I could've asked for. Everybody involved is just amazing which makes the big day even more special!

Not only was this a beautiful venue but the whole staff is amazing! I highly recommend the mountain elegance package! This included the houses for the weekend which slept up to 50 people as well as food, decor, flowers etc! Grace, and Jeanne made the whole wedding planning process a BREEZE!! No stress! They were very helpful and you can tell they truly care about their guest!! The rest if the HRE squad (Nigel the DJ, Neil the bartender and Paige event day hostess) WERE AWESOME! Their onsite florist does BEAUTIFUL work, my flowers were perfect! I also recommend their caterer Ann she makes the best food! Their fajita bar is to die for as well as there Tuscan chicken paired with green beans and potatoes! My guests even after a week are calling, texting telling us how wonderful the food was and venue in general, and that that was the best wedding they have ever attended! If you want a mountain venue this is the place to go!!!

We cannot say strongly enough how much we recommend Hidden River. They worked so well with us in every area. The food and cake were the best we've ever experienced at a wedding and it was beautiful. We had Jeanne officiate the wedding and it was perfect. The horse drawn carriage was a beautiful touch. There are several houses on the property and the entire wedding party and close friends and family stayed right on the site for the entire weekend. By the time the wedding actually occurred, everyone was relaxed and had the time of their lives. The wedding day coordinator was the final gem that made the day incredibly easy. Everyone commented on how relaxed we all were. That was because Hidden River took all the pressure off by doing it all! The all inclusive package is the way to go. We upgraded the food to prime rib and salmon etc., added the horse drawn carriage, and paid a little extra to be sure the flowers were specific colors and the day was perfect. The photographer also was fantastic. All of the pictures captured the character of the person. We can't stop looking at the pictures!! Wish we could do it all again. We wouldn't change a thing!!

Planning from out of state, after never seeing the venue until a month before my wedding, needless to say i was worried. I personally worked mostly with Grace, but the whole team was extremely helpful. I trusted their opinions and was pretty go with the flow, and they exceeded all my expectations! The whole planning process was stress free, and the pictures truly don't do the venue justice! The tent is beautiful, and the floor and lighting doesn't feel "backyard tent" like at all. All my guests were taking and posting pictures of the beautiful views, and I'm so glad I also chose to have my Rehearsal Dinner up at the houses. I couldn't have asked for a better venue, and having the housing on site/bridal party getting ready houses definitely saved us in numerous situations! The price was unbelievable, and they were very flexible with substitutions (we wanted more bouquets than centerpieces, and they had no problem with this). I used them for flowers (BEAUTIFUL), food, cake, DJ, centerpieces, housing, and bartenders.

We could not have been more pleased with how our wedding event turned out! Grace and Jeanne made the task of planning from another state a breeze! I asked A LOT of questions and they were all answered and in a timely manner. We knew when we toured HRE for the first time that this was our place! The grounds are beautiful and it was so helpful that they have housing on the property so all of our closest family and friends were able to be there with us and to spend some quality time together. The ONLY thing I was a little unhappy with was that we did not have Grace as our coordinator the day of the wedding. I knew she had put us in good hands but after working and communicating with her for so long I would have liked to have had her there. Regardless of that, our wedding day went perfectly! After horrible weather all weekend, the sun came out and the day was gorgeous! Everyone knew exactly why we chose HRE for our wedding. One of my favorite things about HRE is they provide sort of an "all inclusive" package. So the housing, venue, rehearsal dinner, catering (which was made by the AMAZING Anne!), flowers, music, photography (Jesse Kitt is awesome!), DJ and a wedding day coordinator are all included. This made it extremely easy for us planning from LA. All I had to do was chose what I wanted. We would definitely recommend HRE to anyone looking for an all inclusive type venue with helpful, friendly, staff and vendors and an amazingly beautiful backdrop to say I do!

Of all the people we chose to help us with our big day, Jeanne at Hidden River Events was without doubt the best ! From the moment we first met her, we knew we'd found the ideal officiant for us.
