Welcome to Hidden River Events. Our Mountain Elegance Weddings are fully customizable.  You can go with what is included and make your decisions accordingly, upgrade and/or customize, or remove items you do not want.  Add your invitations and alcohol, which you can purchase and provide from any source for a cost savings, and you are ready to go. Our clients report 100% satisfaction, telling us they felt as if they were “guests at their own weddings.” Clear and transparent pricing, high quality vendors, on-site accommodations for up to 50 people, comfortably, along with kind and efficient service to match the grandeur of our mountain valley are the hallmarks of our weddings. If you are a couple who wants a lovely wedding, who is busy with school or work, moving or raising a family, or you do not desire to sweat the details of wedding planning and you want to use your engagement to love each other even better, then Hidden River is for you. Our 6800-s.f. event tent is decorated with electric chandeliers and café lighting. Ceiling fans, sidewalls, tent heaters and a permanent concrete floor make the tent comfortable no matter what the weather.
