    So much fun

    As San Franciscan's we weren't sure if we wanted one of those "fake cable cars" for our wedding. To be honest, we had associated them with touristy, boozy parties and weren't sure if it fit the classic vibe we were looking for. However, after looking around, we quickly realized that a cable car rental was the easiest and most economical way to shuttle our bridal party and guests from our nearby hotel to our venue.

    Renting a classic cable car turned out to be one of the coolest parts of our wedding! Hornblower was so easy to work with and the cable car that picked us up was beautiful! It was such a fun way to get from point A to point B and because our guests were visiting from all over the world, it provided them with that little special memory of riding a cable car.

    It was also a really great way to "get the party started". For myself and the bridesmaids, the morning was filled with timelines and to-dos, but once the car picked us up we felt an immediate sense of nostalgia and celebration. People were honking and waving at us and the day immediately went from being stressful to being fun.

    Hornblower was a fantastic choice and I highly recommend utilizing them!

    We had a blast! We surprised our wedding guests with a cable car tour of SF. Hornblower picked us up at Fisherman's Wharf where we had our brunch and whisked us away to the most iconic landmarks of SF. Our energetic driver, Nicole, pumped music, tooted the cable car horn and got us all in the mood to celebrate. We were partying so hard down the street, folks passed by waved and danced and took pictures of us! When we hit the Golden Gate Bridge and the wind whipped through us, Nicole gave us blankets! And the party kept rolling. Treat yourself and your guests to this fun filled ride.
