The Golden Horseshoe Couple

the wedding experience

step by step, here's what to expect

one

two

You're putting a lot of trust in us to host your wedding day!  Scheduling an onsite venue tour is a great way to decide if we'll be the perfect fit!  Tours are available by appointment on most days that we are not hosting an event.  We keep things simple and low key.  We'll show you around the venue and grounds and you can check out our portfolio books.  Most tours last between 30-60 minutes depending on how many questions you have!  Are you planning from far away?  No worries, a venue tour is not required to book a date!

Let's hang out!

You've "said YES" to the Golden Horseshoe Inn and we couldn't be more excited!  Check out our availability calendar to choose the perfect date.  Then send us a text, call or email and let us know the date you'd like!  We'll instantly reserve it for you, and email over a contract and link for paying the retainer fee.  Once those two items have been received, we are ready to get started planning!

We'll email over a personalized wedding planning packet.  It will be filled with all kinds of helpful goodness, including a Wedding Planning Checklist to help make sure you don't miss a single detail.  We'll also include personalized wedding ceremonies you can customize for the perfect fit.  We'll include information about scheduling your onsite planning appointment, so we can work one on one to help with every detail!

Planning!

four

We'll help you arrange a Drop Off appointment before your wedding day, so all the "work and unloading" is out of the way.  That means you'll just get to be a bride or a groom when you walk through the doors on your Wedding Day!  You'll arrive to find your ceremony and reception all set up, cake displayed, flowers waiting in your suite, music softly playing and a very excited team ready to attend to your every need! 

The Big Day!

So much love here

" We chose the Elegance Elopement package, and having the entire inn to ourselves for the day with no rushing around or worrying about holding other people up was amazing! Our flowers were gorgeous, the cake was some of the best we ever had, the ceremony was lovely and our photos came out absolutely beautifully! Not to mention our decorations were stunning! We will never forget this day. Our stay in the cabin was wonderful as well, and the area surrounding it is beautiful. We felt so at home and completely welcome at the inn and smiled and laughed the whole time. We can't recommend this venue enough--they include everything you could dream of, decorate to your tastes and are incredibly kind and easy to work with. Thank you so much for giving us a beautiful day!

"Heather and her team were absolutely amazing! Planning was a breeze and I never had one doubt during the entire process. She made our dreams a reality and truly gave me the perfect wedding I had always dreamed of!"

Cheyenne and Austin, September 23, 2017

"... it was everything we dreamed of. Heather and her team pretty much took all the stress away of planning a wedding which is great because I am a stress junkie! When I walked in the day of the wedding everything was set up beautifully, and exactly how I wanted it. They even made personal touches to fit mine and my husband’s personalities. I can’t say enough about Heather, Brittany, and Monique. They are fabulous and made our wedding day absolutely perfect" - Hollie and Chris

"The moment I walked into The Golden Horseshoe Inn I knew it was the place I was meant to get married"

Hollie and Chris, October 8th, 2017 

"My husband and I had a wonderful experience and are so thankful we chose the Golden Horseshoe Inn for our special day. We chose the Elegance Elopement and it came together so beautifully. . We had a very intimate, relaxing, and stress free day which gave us the ability to enjoy one another and focus on us. Heather and her assistant wedding planner were there to help every step. We had some good laughs as well; it was like having two good friends with me. Our day was perfect from the ceremony, the decorations, the delicious cake and the stay in the Honeymoon cottage. We cherished every moment and have memories that will last a life time!"

"I only gave Heather our colors and from that she decorated everything as if she saw the vision I had in my head!"

Lakesha & Brian, April 8th, 2016

"There is no better place to wed than the Golden Horseshoe Inn. Heather and her entire team are kind, nurturing, efficient, creative, and just about perfect in every way! We planned our entire wedding from across the country and with their help, it was a success. Every detail was magical and as a very stressed out bride, their kindness and comforting chats really kept me sane throughout the entire day. In addition, I just can't say enough about how much we loved GHI. Best value in the area and absolutely the most wonderful place to wed!"

"Heather is an exquisite photographer!  our photos turned out like a magazine and we will cherish them for years to come!"

Autumne & Nathan, April 29. 2017

"Words cannot express how grateful my husband and I are to the Golden Horseshoe Inn team. Heather and her staff operate like a well-oiled machine to ensure that your special day runs seamlessly. I appreciated the small reassurances and the calm demeanor of both Heather and her assistants throughout the morning. They took care of all the hiccups with the ease of true professionals. That really helped me focus on what was important throughout the day. Golden Horseshoe Inn’s services alleviate practically all of the burden on couples planning a small to medium sized wedding. Without reservation, I recommend Golden Horseshoe Inn to any couple seeking an all-inclusive wedding service at an affordable price. The location is beautiful, the staff is professional and thoughtful, and the services can be easily customized to fit your wedding vision!"

"Trust that you are placing your wedding day in the hands of very talented and capable people who want the same thing that you want—a special and memorable wedding day"

Sarah & Johannes, April 9th, 2017

"Golden Horseshoe Inn is a beautiful place for a wedding! First, the place and area is absolutely beautiful. Heather and everyone else at Golden Horseshoe is amazing!!! I wanted a wedding where I did not have to worry about anything and that is exactly what I got. They exceeded our expectations. We chose the elopement package and it was very special. Everything from the cake (which was delicious), the flowers, the decorating, and, most importantly, the service was absolutely perfect! The photos that Heather took are stunning! I have received so many compliments on them. I can't say enough good things. I very highly recommend!"

Photo Sessions you've got to see...

Any groom who wears a top hat is going to be a favorite of mine!  I loved bonding with Jen and Michael over home renovation stories (I'm totally copying their bathroom floor tile!) and I loved the way they let their personalities shine through in their wedding attire (wait till you see Jen's purple shoes!)

Jen + Michael

A Gorgeous November Mountain Elopement!  We loved spending time with this sweet couple and their closest family!  Our mountain adventure after the ceremony resulted in some really epic photos - some of my favorites of the whole year!  Having an intimate wedding means lots of time for great photos and special time together!

Barbara + Jed

This was such a fun day, with that perfect golden autumn light that photographers dream about!  We loved all the special details (hand crocheted doilies, hand stamped copper mugs, an adorable pooch named Harley) that were a part of this amazing celebration!
