Truly the very best at what they do

Heather and her team made our day a dream come true. They made planning a breeze and worked with us the whole way to make sure the day was exactly as we wanted it. They were so warm and kind, and they all made the day so special. They wanted the day to go just as wonderfully as we did, and it showed in everything that they did. I am forever grateful to everyone involved at the golden horseshoe for giving us our picture perfect wedding.

Highly recommend GHI for the perfect micro wedding

Heather and her team exceeded our expectations. They listened to what we wanted and followed through to make sure every little detail was absolutely perfect. It was so nice to walk into the venue on the morning of our wedding and see it set up without having to lift a finger. It took all the stress out of planning a wedding and allowed us to focus on the fun details. In addition to the wedding details, the photos are incredible. The way Heather captured the details really tells a story and will allow us to relive this day forever. The mountain photoshoot was probably my favorite part of the day. Though it wasn鈥檛 the original plan, we decided to do it prior to the wedding so our guests wouldn鈥檛 have to wait. Having the private first look and that time alone together provided the perfect opportunity for us to have an intimate experience to enjoy each other before our family and friends arrived. Since our big day, we have had so many friends and family members comment on how nice the venue was and what an exceptional job Heather, Monique, and the rest of the staff did to make sure everything and everyone was well taken care of. We wanted a Micro Wedding without sacrificing the special moments, and GHI gave us exactly what we were looking for.

GHI was amazing! Highly recommend.

Our day was perfect! Heather. Monique, and the whole crew handled almost everything. They knew what would likely not go as planned and was ready. Heather took amazing pictures. This place is just as beautiful and amazing as the website makes it look.

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." Their attention to detail and customer satisfaction is of utmost importance. If you're planning a smaller wedding, 70 or less, you need to book with Heather!

When I play my harp for a wedding at the Golden Horseshoe Inn, I always look forward to a relaxed and well-planned event that might have been pulled out of a movie. The beautiful mountains, the historic home, the quiet intimate setting and the friendly team of professionals all pull together to create a truly magical experience for all!
