We hired G&F Carriages to do our wedding , they were hired as surprise to all of our guests & even my dad! well the ruined the surprise by parking in the main parking lot (although the driver was "told" to park there He Should Have Seen All Over My Paperwork He Was A Surprise & Asked To Move.. the wedding was on a 28 acre property.. lots of other places to park other than the MAIN PARKING LOT) The driver had difficulty getting the horse & carriage up a hill that was steeper than he thought it was going to be, so he BEAT the Horse to get her up the hill on his 2nd attempt, & on his first attempt while turning her around he KNOCKED MY MOM OVER IN HER MOTHER OF THE BRIDE DRESS, with no apology! (During our visit to the Carriage Shop to set up the Carriage, we did explain the layout of the property & advised the owner, George & for that fact the driver of the carriage was there also to go see the property as we were months ahead of the big day.. CLEARLY THEY DID NOT VISIT THE PROPERTY) After ruining the surprise for most, knocking my mother over & beating the poor horse up the hill it was time for me to enter the carriage with my dad & make my big entrance, lucky for us that was smooth, other than the look of Anger on the drivers face in every photo taken (SUCH A DISAPPOINTMENT) then after dropping us off he went down to the trailer unhooked & LEFT!!! He did not wait for my Husband and I after the ceremony to drive off with him in the carriage... (ALL THOSE PHOTOS WILL BE MISSED FOREVER) Not to mention that we paid for a service and did not receive the Full Service. Sadly we called George the owner of G&F to explain all that happened, and got absolutely no where. We did discover that Buddy was the driver for the day! BE WARE OF THIS COMPANY
The Carriage Was not clean and the driver was rude. She would not stop talking. Carriage was also 10 min late
My Cinderella wedding would not have been complete without the carriage and white drawn horse.. (there would have been 2 horses, but the golf course only had room for 1). Vicky was wonderful, on time and kept hidden until it was time for my father and I to be brought in. My husband was so surprised when he saw his princess bride ride up in the carriage. At the end of the ceremony, there were 2 doves that were released and this was also provided by C&F carriages. My guests are still talking about my enterence, only fitting for a Cinderella..
