    A Lovely Ride!

    My husband and I were married last month in Berryville, VA, where our wedding ceremony was at a church in Berryville, and our wedding weekend celebrations were held at Historic Rosemont, also in Berryville, VA. Harmon’s Horse Drawn Carriage picked us up at the church after our wedding ceremony and drove us back to Rosemont afterwards. What a lovely ride it was! The horses and carriage were magnificent and the driver was regal, just like in a fairy tale! As we were trotting down the road and people passed us in their cars, they were honking and waving, celebrating with us! The driver was very considerate of traffic since we were driving through town, and helped vehicles go around us if they were in a hurry. Our ride was so beautiful and so romantic. We loved every minute of it. Our horse-drawn carriage ride was a dream come true!

    We just wanted to extend a sincere thank you to Harmon's Carriages, especially Midge, Jim, and Jenny who were part of our special day this past Labor Day weekend in Fairfax. Not only was their team very timely, they were also equally accommodating, personable, and kind throughout the entire experience. We would like to convey a special thanks to Jenny, as well as the horse-minder, who ensured the procession went wonderfully without a hitch and made everyone feel comfortable!

    The white mare and her beautiful adornments truly made for a wonderful visual experience, especially for the kids in the audience who were taking it all in every step of the way. She was super friendly to all who wanted to pet or take pictures with her. We are very appreciative and hope to have an opportunity to do business with Harmon's Carriages again in the future in some capacity or another.

    With love,
    D&T

    We hired Harmon's to transport the bride and bridal party from one end of the venue to another for the ceremony (big place). They were prompt and we got exactly what we were expecting. We were able to fit 4 adults and 4 children in the carriage. It also made for beautiful pictures!

    Everything was excellent!! I only wish we had asked you meet us farther back on the road so that we could enjoy a longer ride!!! You were very flexible in that you let my niece and nephew on at the last second so that they could have their chance to ride as well as my littler niece who had jumped on the carriage at the beginning..Thank you sooo much for the fun and the grandeur! We wish we could do it again!

    Harmon's Carriages added something extra special to the wedding day. They picked us up from the ceremony venue and took us to our reception. The pictures of the carriage and horses from the day are just beautiful and we had so much fun during the ride. Harmon's was on time (early, actually), professional and easy to coordinate with. The carriage was gorgeous and the horses were beautiful and very sweet. I definitely recommend!

    This topped the list for making our wedding a fairy tale come true. It was just simply amazing to arrive by horse drawn carriage for the ceremony. Midge at Harmon's took very good care of us and our driver Jim was the best. He was so nice to talk to on the ride to the ceremony, which definitely helps to put your nerves at ease. I highly recommend Midge and her staff to make your wedding day extra special, like they did for ours!

I believe John was your driver and he is one of the nicest guys around. He always makes everyone feel at ease. Jim was the hauler for the truck and trailer.

    We live in Maryland and got married in Maryland at the Cylburn Arboretum. From beginning to end, Midge Harmon really helped me pull off this surprise. I hired a horse and carriage as a surprise for my groom. It was under $1000 for 2 hours. My now husband is totally blind. One of our first trips together was to Busch Gardens in Virginia where he got to meet the famous Clydesdales. I wasn't able to find a Clydesdale but I was able to find a Draft horse which is a cousin of the Clydesdale. She put jingle bells on the harness so he could hear the horse moving. When the horse and carriage arrived during the ceremony, the guests couldn't figure out where the sound of the jingle bells was coming from. They all had a guess about it. It was as much a surprise for them as it was for my groom. Seeing him so happy when we were riding in the carriage was one of the best parts of our day. John, the driver. was really great. He held my sunglasses when we were doing pictures and he answered all of my groom's questions about Dixie (our horse). We really had a great time. We can't thank them enough for all they did to make our day special.

    Thank you, Sue-Ellen. We are so pleased that everything was such a success, and that you and Marc especially enjoyed your ride and the horse. John said Marc was just thrilled, and petted and talked To Dixie the whole time.
    How neat that the Sleigh Bells added to the interest for your guests. They will definitly remember your wedding. Have a terrific life and love and laughter always. Midge and all the Harmon crew.

    My husband and are got married in September and we debated whether or not to spend the money on this "extra" touch. But we are so glad we did!! The horse was beautiful and the carriage was wonderful. The carriage driver was fabulous. We couldn't believe how much it made our wedding feel like a fairy tale!

    At first I was unsure about hiring a horse drawn carriage for my wedding where the church was literally a block and a half away from the reception venue, but when all was said and done, the carriage ride was my 2nd absolute favorite part and memory from our wedding (the first being the ceremony of course). It took us to our photo location and then strolled around Old Town until it was time for the reception to begin. It was so nice to have the time spent alone with my new husband in an open carriage on a beautiful day in Old Town Alexandria. At times onlookers were waving, cheering, honking and congratulating us as if we were famous! Then there were times that it was peaceful and all we could do is smile and enjoy the company of one another as the sound of trotting horse steps were heard in the background. Both my husband and I loved every second of it!

    Harmon's Carriages provided a white mare for the baraat for our Indian wedding. They were responsive throughout the planning process and provided excellent service on the day of. The handler arrived early, with plenty of time to get set up and ready for the procession, and the horse was beautifully decorated, with the perfect temperament for the baraat. The only minor issue was that there was no stool to help the groom mount the horse, so he had to be hoisted onto the horse by his groomsmen (not easy to do in the Indian wedding attire), but this was a small oversight, and the groom (and all of our guests!) thoroughly enjoyed the baraat. Would recommend Harmon's to others - reasonably priced and great service.

    Harmon's Carriage service was unique, timely, and contributed much to the wedding venue. They arrived as promised and were congenial to work with as to how they would integrate their service with the wedding venue. In fact they went out of their way to please and make our event a very happy occasion. I would strongly recommend Harmon's for the value they bring, the folks they work with, and their obvious desire to make a lasting customer delighted with their services.

    They are very easy to communicate, very professional and did a great job in providing their white mare for the wedding. the groom had a great time riding the mare during Baraat. didn't know that they also provided band. if i had known i would have certainly asked for their services.

    Our carriage ride was AMAZING! My cheeks hurt so much from people waving, smiling, clapping and taking pictures as we strolled the streets of Old Town Alexandria. It was perfect. However, when we got dropped off to go runaway for some alone time and the driver went to go pick up my family so they could ride, unfortunately it wasn't as pleasant for them. Something happened with the horses and they began to run through red lights and almost hit a car! My mom said she couldn't believe what was happening and just kept pleading the blood of Jesus for protection! Prayerfully, the driver was able to gain control again of the horses and my family had to unload. The horses were injured somehow and the carriage ride ended for them. They had been riding for only 10-15 min. I'm going to contact them as ask for a discount. I know these are wild animals and they are unpredictable so I'm not mad at the company, but I didn't get my full 2 hours and it's a very scary thought to know that my immediate family and my husband's immediate family could have all been seriously injured or killed. I would recommend this company but just know what you're getting into.

    UPDATE 10/30/13: Just received a personal letter from Harmon's addressing the mishap that happened with the horses. The letter even mentioned the driver saying how my mom was praying and obviously her prayers were answered. I was shocked! Also the letter included a reimbursement check for the time we had to cut short. I am in awe, blessed, grateful and shocked that they took the time to address the issue without me having to contact them or complain. Absolutely wonderful customer service and company!! Thank you Harmon's and more specifically Howard and Midge!

    My husband and I were very pleased at the services that Harmon's provided for us. We had a horse drawn carriage pulled by 2 beautiful horses. It was our grand entrance to our reception on my parents 500 acre Victorian farm. We also used the carriage to pose for pictures with our bridal party. Thank you
