"The venue was stunning, and the GHI team was so helpful in the prep and execution of our wedding day! They took the pressure and stress out of the day, and made our entire guest list feel like one big family."
"They made it SO easy. The value of this venue is immeasurable. While you can certainly add many things to your wedding, this venue provides so much that you most definitely won't need to. The only thing that I purchased myself for our wedding was a cake topper. That's it."
If you've discovered that the "idea" of planning a wedding (so much fun!) and the "reality" of planning a wedding (so much time and expense!) are two very different things, we totally understand! After hosting hundreds of weddings we've learned how to simplify the entire process for our couples. You'll get to make all the fun decisions you've been dreaming of - cake flavors, personalized flowers, color scheme and decorations. And we'll take care of all those not so fun things like ironing tablecloths and setting up floorplans. We know you want a fantastic day, that feels like "you", and we know you can't stop your busy life to plan every little detail. If you've been searching for a venue that treats every couple like family, and recognizes that this is a day that can't be done over, if you've been thinking that sometimes bigger isn't always better...an intimate wedding day at the Golden Horseshoe Inn might just be your dream come true! We can't wait to work with you!

We think a wedding Highlight Film is the perfect way to share the excitement of your special day. Long enough to capture all the best moments of the day, but short enough to easily share online and with friends and family! Most Wedding Highlight Films run about 8 minutes or so, each film varies slightly in length.
We are so excited to provide an affordable Cinematography option exclusively to our Golden Horseshoe couples. Included in the cinematography package is:
-up to 6.5 hours of onsite filming
-editing and creation of a high resolution Wedding Film
-fully licensed background music
-delivery via high resolution download
*please note that raw footage is not provided
Your completed Wedding Highlight film will be available about 4-6 weeks following your wedding day! Although we are happy for you to make requests prior to editing, we encourage you to understand that you are hiring us to create a film and use our creative vision to do so. We do not provide raw, unedited footage, as it does not represent our finished product. Once finished, you'll have the ability to save, download and share your film in whichever manner you like!
Couples are welcome to hire any vendors they wish for their big day! We aim to provide professional, affordable options for Photo and Video, but are more than happy for you to hire the outside vendors of your choice.
Please note that our in house Photography and Videography packages are only compatible with each other. If you are hiring an outside photographer, you'll need to hire an outside videographer and vice versa.
Our love for our couples and for helping them create a day that perfectly reflects them keeps us energized and always giving 110%
