    A Dreamy Ride

    Carriages by Karen was a big hit. Karen took the time to meet with the director of our venue ahead of time and it made for a smooth experience for everyone. Karen's professionalism and her demeanor with all of our guests was exactly what was needed to set our wedding day apart from the ordinary. Every time I look at our video and photos when I see scenes featuring the carriage rides I know that it was a great decision to incorporate it into our wedding. I wouldn't change a thing about that day and Karen spent time during our cocktail hour offering rides to guests and children to make the day a very special event. As the groom one thing that was truly special was seeing my bride enter the wedding area riding in the carriage. The oohs and aahs from the guests had me feeling like it was so fitting and I'm not sure how else we would've had it happen. So many comments afterwards explaining that everyone had a great time and the bride's entrance was a great surprise for everyone. Team JHP highly recommends Carriages by Karen. - Jonathan & Holly Pernell #JHPforthewin

    Horse Carriage Miracle

    Our wedding was May 25th, 2019 - Memorial Day weekend. Everybody usually is busy during that time, so it was hard for me to find the horse carriage only two months prior to to the wedding. But I found Karen. And she did the miracle for us! Please see the pictures, you will understand!

    Thanks al lot, Karen!

    Carriages by Karen's reply:

    Thank you Olga! Weddings are beautiful because of the people we provide services for. It was a beautiful wedding many fond memories to have and to hold! Thank you for giving Carriages by Karen the opportunity to share our love of horses.
