"I cannot thank Heather and her team enough. We gave her one inspiration picture and a brief description of what we envisioned and she created the most beautiful, special, personalized wedding day for us. She made the entire process easy and stress free and everything exceeded all of our expectations. In addition to being an amazing wedding planner, she is an incredible photographer! Her pictures are magazine quality and we are so thankful that we will have these memories to cherish for years to come. For any brides who have had to rework their weddings due to COVID or are considering a smaller wedding even in non-COVID times, I would HIGHLY recommend GHI. -Colleen and Derrick

We truly couldn’t have asked for anything better. Having the all inclusive feel takes the stress out of planning a wedding. From the delicious cake to perfectly designed flowers, to in-house photography and cinematography..., as well as a provided officiant that made our ceremony extra special…. we really couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. If you’re questioning having a smaller, intimate ceremony…. Look no further!!! The GHI is the place for you". - Kayley and Nick

If I could rate Golden Horseshoe Inn 50 stars it still wouldn't be enough.  From the planning to the day of, everything was just so effortless. Every detail, every moment, and every aspect of the entire day was, for lack of a better word, perfect. Weddings can often be stressful but that was not the case for us... we had FUN. Our cheeks hurt by the end of the day from smiling and laughing so much.  Our photos are simply breathtaking and we will cherish them for the rest of our lives. I could go on and on about all the amazing things that should make you chose GHI but there is no reason better than the folks that come with it. My husband and I felt completely at home with Heather and Monique and you just can't put a price on that. Not one single regret. - Skye and Sam

"We found GHI and it was like all of our wishes had been granted. Getting married with GHI was the absolute best decision. The team at GHI is truly a dream team. We gave them a vision of what we were thinking and they made it come to life. The decor was beautiful. Our cake was delicious, really pretty too. Between Heather & Monique, the day moved very smoothly and there was never an awkward moment of “what’s next”. All of our family and friends felt very welcome. GHI is very LGBT+ friendly. My wife and I felt very supported and the GHI family was genuinely happy for us. Choosing an all inclusive wedding was the best option for us. We wanted a beautiful wedding without the stress of planning it and that’s exactly what we experienced.  - Amanda and McKenzie




Our Wish for you:
At the end of your wedding day, as you drive off into the sunset, we want you to be marveling about how it all came together so easily!
A truly wonderful day, with every detail taken care of for you! A day that protected you (and your family & friends) from the unnecessary stress, expense and chaos that most weddings involve. A day where you could enjoy every moment, because you had a team taking care of everything behind the scenes. A day where you didn't have to waste a single minute trying to repair a damaged cake, or track down the florist, or iron giant tablecloths or set out flatware. You only get to be a Bride or a Groom for one precious day, and we think you should savor every moment of it!
You deserve the wedding day of your dreams, and we can't wait to help create it for you!
