    They brought our wedding dreams to life!

    Our wedding was absolutely wonderful! Heather was helpful from the very first day I reached out when we began planning our elopement. We are from Virginia but live in Indiana and even though we didn’t meet Heather or see the venue until the day of our wedding, it was everything we could’ve hoped for. We were able to enjoy every moment of our day because everything was ready for us. There was no stress because I knew I could count on Heather. My husband and I adore our wedding photos by Heather and wedding video done by her husband Stephen. We are so thankful to have them to be able to look back on our special day for years to come. We are so happy we got married at the Golden Horseshoe Inn and we wouldn’t have had it any other way!

    Best venue ever!

    I can't say enough about the Golden Horseshoe Inn. It is the complete package. The venue is gorgeous and Heather made the wedding planning stress free and flow so smoothly. When we were looking for a wedding venue we found that other places were more expensive and offered fewer services than the Golden Horseshoe (photography, ordering cake, officiant, decor, setting up, cleaning up, music, I could go on and on). Heather and the staff take care of everything for you to make your special day as stress free as possible. They are also so so amazing and friendly with everyone especially the little ones and making sure everyone has everything they need. Thank you so much!

    Everything we could have asked for, and more!

    We will never be able to thank Heather and her staff enough for giving us the wedding of our dreams. From the very beginning, we could tell we had made the right choice, and Heather’s warmth and excitement were present throughout every step of the process. As soon as we booked the venue, we were able to share ideas, and communicate regularly, always receiving prompt responses. Every detail was addressed, and Heather gave us the flexibility to be as involved as we wanted to be. She also made several excellent recommendations for bakeries, hair/makeup, and possible wedding favors to include in our day. The day of the wedding ran smoothly, and we were able to have fun and enjoy the experience – knowing that the GHI team had everything under control. From the smallest of details to the beautiful and laid-back photo shoot, Heather knew exactly what to do – or what question to ask – to make sure we got the experience we wanted. We are so thankful for her, and all the staff at GHI - Alan, Monique, and Atlanta - who helped make our wedding day exactly what we were looking for. Because of them, we were able to relax and be present in the moment with our family. When we look back on our wedding day, we know we will always be happy that we chose GHI. No one else could have given us such a perfect day.

    We always enjoy catering at the Golden Horseshoe Inn; the venue is an adorable, charming, romantic setting right outside Shenandoah National Forest. Heather Tusing and her staff are an absolute pleasure to work with to create an individualized approach to your "special day."
