Joshua and Kaitlin joined us on the prettiest autumn afternoon for their beautiful mountain elopement. We are still oohing and ahhing over Kaitlin’s amazing style and gorgeous bridal look. She is a list maker and a detailed planner like me, so she had two dresses ready to go, and two gorgeous jackets to accessorize with…an […]
We were counting the days until Melissa and Warren’s gorgeous October wedding day! Not only would we have the joy of hosting a very special day, but it would also be our first time getting to meet Melissa and Warren in person! We always feel a special sense of anticipation and responsibility when a couple […]
“It’s a little mermaid reference” Lindsey explained when she sent in her final wedding script. She was just sweetly making sure our officiant would end the wedding ceremony with “Now, go on and kiss the girl” instead of the traditional “you may kiss the bride”. And that sort up sums up everything you need to […]
An intimate wedding is always a very special family affair, but this one was even more so, because our Groom Noah was the second sibling in his family to be married at the Golden Horseshoe Inn <3 We had the honor of hosting his sister’s elegant elopement in 2019 and she was kind enough to […]
We are very pleased to introduce you to the new Mr. and Mrs. Carter! Betty and Philip were married on the most gorgeous September afternoon at the Golden Horseshoe Inn.

Michelle and Paul knew that they wanted a wedding day that felt special but also relaxed and family friendly! We had so much fun helping them put together a wedding day that checked all those boxes! This special day included a Candy Buffet in shades of green. A reception room with adorably socially distanced tables […]
We were so excited to begin the month of March with the cheer filled wedding of Honey and Wes! This lovely couple added so many fun elements to their special day…from the sweet strawberries adorning their wedding cake, to the special first dance song performed by the brides own mother and brother. Honey’s mom Vih […]
This was a simply magical day at the Golden Horseshoe Inn! We absolutely loved all the charming decor touches and all the sweet people involved in Katlynn and Scott’s elegant rustic wedding day! There is just something about a pale blue wedding taking place in the Blue Ridge mountains…it feels like the whole world has […]
There is an art to appreciating each moment as it comes. An art to not getting so caught up in “what could be” that “right now” is forgotten. Our sweet couple Kaitlyn and Daniel helped me remember this wisdom in the most magical way, on their wedding day! As many of our couples do, they […]
If you are in need of some holiday cheer, oh boy, have you come to the right spot! The Golden Horseshoe Inn was overflowing with the Christmas spirit (and so much love!) this past Saturday, as we celebrated the wedding of Kimberly and John. You might be able to guess that Kimberly and John both […]
Brooke and Dustin choose my favorite weekend of the year for their wedding day – the first weekend in November! I just love the quiet calm of November, and there is always still beautiful color adorning the mountains – a last hurrah courtesy of Mother Nature, before it all blows away in the November winds. […]
Sometimes I wonder why I spend so much time on wedding detail shots…why do I love them so much? Every hour and moment of a wedding day seems to tick by so fast, and I wonder if I’m using my time wisely. But after yesterday’s very special wedding, I came to some clarity on this […]
It was such a joy working with our amazing bride Amanda and her wonderful groom Jamie to plan this special day, and a true delight to see it all come together! Speaking for myself and our Asst. Wedding planner Monique, Amanda made our jobs a breeze <3 and was always on top of her wedding […]
It has been such a joy for me this year, that my oldest daughter Isabel has joined the GHI team and helps us on certain wedding weekends (when AP Bio isn’t bogging her down!). Since she was a little girl she has always been very in tune to moods, and atmospheres and has always appreciated […]
We started our October off in the most beautiful way…with Tiffany and John’s wedding day!

I was amazed at all the wonderful ways that John and Tiffany’s family poured their own love and talents into […]
When Mike took a chance and ran out of the bar to give his number to the amazing girl he had just met…well, who knew it would lead us to this beautiful wedding day! Katie and Mike were married on a sunny September afternoon on a day that celebrated taking chances, and taking swings on […]
