Elegant River Wedding

View More Photos




Mattea and Jeremy’s wedding was the perfect mix of elegance and nature. The couple wanted to celebrate nature’s beauty through their wedding day. When they found, Hiwassee River Weddings, the pair knew this venue was meant to be. This venue was surrounded by the forest, a river, and bright light with an indoor reception site. Since Mattea particularly loved the outdoors, she opted for simple décor. Fresh eucalyptus and soft pastels pared with romantic candles created Mattea and Jeremy’s wedding day design. The ceremony took place over looking the river. The couple said their vows under an elegant wooden arbor decorated with greenery and blush roses. Upon arrival, guests could enjoy the venue property and were welcomed with a simplistic handmade sign.



Mattea wore a stunning lace gown with a dramatic veil. She chose a natural braid for her wedding day hairstyle with minimal gold accessories. Her bouquet consisted of more eucalyptus that featured throughout the entire event along with blush roses and baby’s breath. Jeremy wore a navy suit with a white bouquet adorned with greenery. His groomsmen wore outfits to match Jeremy while Mattea’s bridesmaids wore various colored full-length gowns. Each gown featured one of the wedding day colors that could be viewed at the venue. They carried small versions of Mattea’s bouquet tied with a white ribbon. Mattea and Jeremy opted for a first look for a private, heartfelt moment before the ceremony began. Photography was an important aspect to the couple and they desired to include as much time throughout the day to capture each moment.



Inside the reception hall, pillar candles, fresh greenery and modern lanterns created the ambiance of the event. The venue’s reception hall featured large chandeliers and natural wood to match Mettea and Jeremy’s wedding day theme. Guests sat a round tables while family and the wedding party sat at family styled tables, each decorated with different color roses and a greenery filled runner. While the couple enjoyed photo’s their guests could enjoy a buffet of their favorite foods. Mattea and Jeremy exited their wedding in style on a motorcycle while guests blew bubbles. This wedding day was a true reflection of the beautiful couple and their loved ones.
