Once upon a time, the only way to move from place to place was by horse-drawn carriage. Travel times were long, the wagon was uncomfortable, and the horses—though strong—were tired and haggard.
Oh, how the times have changed.
We're still huge fans of the horse-drawn carriage to move you from one place to another—it's been our passion for 15 years. In fact, we've made a real family affair of it; Carriage Limousine Service is owned and operated by the Steed family, which collectively has more than 30 years of experience working with all kinds of horses. Our love for our animals and our commitment to making our clients' wedding dreams come true are the key to our success, and we're dedicated to making every horse-drawn carriage ride magical.
As far as the long, uncomfortable wagon rides? Sorry, we can't help you there.
What we do provide are luxury carriages that can be decorated to complement any occasion:
• Indian Weddings (www.indianweddinghorses.com)
• Proms and Dances
• Birthdays and Quinceañera's
• Celebrations and Parties
• Festivals and Holiday Events
Our speciality is wedding (and Indian wedding) transportation, simply because nothing completes a wedding like the magic of a horse-drawn carriage. We're fortunate to offer our clients their choice of three carriages and—for the winter bride—one sleigh.
The Cinderella Carriage (www.thecinderellacarriage.com) – Our premier wedding carriage boasts a pumpkin-like design for a ride taken from a page straight out of a fairytale. Lined in maroon, this white carriage is perfect for the newlyweds to take romantic post-ceremony ride.
The Victorian Carriage – This elegant, French-inspired carriage is similar to the ones by which wealthy women would travel during the nineteenth century. This carriage can be completely enclosed for privacy—shielding the bride from onlookers as she arrives at the ceremony—and then later opened so guests can admire the newlyweds as they leave.
The Limousine – As the name implies, this majestic beauty can seat your entire wedding party (up to 10 adults) comfortably. It's a great and classy alternative to the usual stretch limousine and it can easily be covered when the weather is less than perfect.
The Sleigh (www.thehorsedrawnsleigh.com – coming soon) – The beauty of a winter wedding can only be magnified by a romantic sleigh ride. Our red sleigh seats up to 8 adults and travels on wheels instead of runners, so it can also be used year-round.
The gown, the anticipation, the day you've waiting for your entire life: This is the day you finally get to play the role of a real-life princess in a fairytale written just for you. What could be more fitting than arriving to your wedding in a horse-drawn carriage behind one of our stunning white Percheron draft horses?
But we're not satisfied to simply get you from Point A to Point B; a horse-drawn carriage doubles as your best and most impressive wedding accessory! As part of our wedding packages, we offer so much more than just a ride to the church—we offer an entire experience!
Take a horse-drawn carriage ride as husband and wife to reflect privately following the ceremony. We'll take you around the block or chauffeur you to a photo location of your choosing, or even to your reception (depending on distance and time). Then take advantage of the charm provided by a horse-drawn carriage and incorporate it into your wedding photos. Your coachman will be dressed smartly in tails and a top hat and will be happy to accommodate you and your wedding photographer. While you're at it, why not share the day's splendor with your guests and arrange for us to provide horse-drawn carriage rides for all?
Whimsy. Classy. Perfect. We are your premier horse-drawn carriage service and we're ready to help you plan an unforgettable event, whether it's a wedding, prom, or any other special function. Climb aboard one of our luxury coaches and "let your happily ever after begin with us."
