Peter and his amazing cab made our wedding day so special!

Peter and his amazing car really made our wedding just so very special. I am so glad that we reached out to him, I don't even know where to begin. Peter was incredibly responsive and so thoughtful in his suggestions for our day.

He picked us up (and was early) from our first look location downtown - and the second we saw the car we were even more excited about the day, which we didn't think was possible!

We told him a few spots we were thinking of in Brooklyn but really put everything in his hands, which worked out beautifully - he drove us over the Brooklyn Bridge and found the perfect spot that wasn't crowded and had absolutely gorgeous views. And then when our photographer wanted to go back to another mural we passed, Peter didn't blink and knew exactly how to get there.

I know he's been doing this a long time, but he seemed just as excited about the adventure as we were which made everything just so fun. The car was, of course, AMAZING - which we could tell by the photos and information he sent us initially - but what we didn't know was how wonderful Peter himself would be.

We are seriously considering booking him again for our one year anniversary - Peter, please keep September 3rd free :-)

Peter and FilmCars was a very magical part of a very magical day, and we are so thankful we found him! If you're considering it too, go for it, you will not regret it!!

100+ stars needed for Filmcars and Peter

I wish I could give more stars for Filmcars. My now husband and I, booked Peter and his 1969 Checker cab for our wedding day on 05/29/2023 - the infamous home alone 2 car! From start to finish Peter went above and beyond; beginning with email correspondence to book Peter. Peter then proceeded to provide lots of tips and was very helpful, great time keeping and even had the friendly touch of a British flag inside the cab. Meeting Peter is an absolutely wonderful experience, he is full of wonderful stories and knowledge about the cab, New York, where to have photos taken. Peter was also super friendly after our wedding day, giving us best wishes for our nuptials and commenting on our photos where the beautiful cab shined in all it's glory! It is very clear that Peter loves what he does and is so proud of his cars, business and his city. If there is anything you must do for your wedding or special event, book Film Cars - you will not regret it! Memories to last a life time.
