Information about Wedding Carriage Rides

Our fee covers all preparation, set up, and travel time. Our prices are determined by date, time, location, and the number of horses/carriages you are requesting. There is a minimum price for one horse and an elegant white carriage for up to two hours. Please call for additional information.
We have large trucks and trailers which are specially designed to transport our horses and carriages. When we arrive, we discreetly set up everything ‘out of site’ and be ready to serve you at the time and location that you have specified on our Agreement.
We are very centrally located in Terryville, CT which is 25 miles west of Hartford and approx. 10-15 miles from Waterbury, Southington, and Torrington. For the sake of our horses, we prefer to stay within a 75 mile radius from the farm.
A horse drawn carriage is ideal for short distances. Therefore, as you travel at a relaxed pace, you are able to enjoy this day you have worked so hard to plan for. Allow approx. 10 min. per mile and keep travel distance within a 2 mile radius. Be sure to allot enough time for;

(A) a receiving line (B) photos with the carriage (C) travel time to your reception

Does the company you are interested in provide the horses/carriages that you see? They may be pictures of years ago. What you see is NOT always what you get!

Therefore, if you have the opportunity to meet with the carriage company you are considering, we encourage you to do so. We would be happy to set up an appt. to meet with you with absolutely no obligation.

Two courteous drivers are outfitted in tuxedos and top hats. A female attendant is there to assist you with your gown while getting in and and out of the carriage and during pictures.

After the ceremony, a sparkling beverage will be served to ‘celebrate the moment’! Knowing the best angles to photograph a horse and carriage, your driver/attendant will work as a team to ensure your photographer gets ‘the perfect pictures’!
