We absolutely loved our time with Adahlia and Josh – two of the sweetest people ever to be married at the Golden Horseshoe Inn.  Their beautiful sense of family, and the love shared between them was wonderful to witness.  This easy going couple added special touches throughout their décor, including a painting they had created together (of a Joshua Tree and a Dahlia flower), a memory table, and jars of local honey for each guest to take home.  Their color scheme of hot pink and turquoise was the perfect fit for their vibrant personalities.  Enjoy some of our favorite moments from this lovely spring wedding day…
