Excellent Service

Gold Shield Transportation was fantastic for us. They worked very well with our Wedding Coordinator and made sure that we had no worries about the transportation being on time or in the right place. They were perfect for us!

Wedding Shuttle

The 14-passenger van was a perfect size shuttle to take our wedding guests back to the hotel after our wedding!

Perfect Vintage Car Rental

We rented 2 vans and the Vintage Bentley for our wedding and it was all great. The drivers were super friendly and the Bentley made for some awesome wedding photos!
