Wedding Transportation | Limo, Carriage, Trolley, Boat, Bike ~ Ceremony to Reception
Wedding Transportation from Ceremony to Reception
How are you getting from your Wedding Ceremony to your Wedding Reception? Maybe it is in the same location so you can walk or ride a bike. What if you want to go off-site and do some fun images along the water, architecture, overlook, nature, etc. At some point you need to consider Wedding Transportation and also who will be with you on this Wedding ride.
There are a lot of options out there for you to consider. Limousine(limo), bus, limo bus, antique car, semi, trolley, wagon, sleigh, sled, snowmobile, atv, buggy, helicopter, sailboat, pontoon, sport car, convertible, horse, boat, your own car, bike, carriage, scooter, someone’s shoulders or back, or the old fashioned way, walk. Check out some of the options that I, Paul Retherford Wedding Photography, have photographed.

Stories about Wedding Transportation and rides
This last photo the bride was delivered to the ceremony on the pontoon with an umbrella over her to hide her from her guest. They decorated the dock and the path up to the gazebo for the Wedding isle. Dad met the bride at the dock and walked her all the way up to the gazebo where their were chairs on both sides, a acoustic singer, and lots of beautiful flowers and details. Following the ceremony the Wedding party jumped back on the pontoon, the sign was displayed and they took a tour around the lake. I rode on a separate pontoon and captured lots of fabulous images.
Just last month the bride and groom hired a bus to take the Wedding party from Monroe to Ann Arbor for the Wedding Reception. The bride and groom met a horse drawn carriage downtown Ann Arbor and did a Wedding ride through beautiful Ann Arbor by the University of Michigan campus. I ran next to the carriage and captured images for about a mile. It was really cold but really worth the images.
Some Wedding ceremonies are a stone throw to the Wedding reception. Sometimes the bride and groom elect to do something fun like take off on a tandem bike for a few images following the ceremony. I have had brides and grooms that ride in on a bike when they are introduced. The sky is really the limit.
You know that your time in the Wedding Transportation is typically going to be short so keep that in mind when booking your Wedding Ride. Make a list of everyone that you want to include. Sometimes brides and grooms like to include spouses and partners on the ride. It is your day and you will have the images after the day to remember it all. Think about they dynamics of having these people on the ride with you. Will it add to your day or make the people more reserved.
Lastly, feel free to really put your personal stamp of uniqueness on anything you do. I always enjoy the people who go the extra mile to jazz up their Wedding Transportation to really make their images all the more spectacular. On the other hand, if you have Wedding Transportation that is unique then you made need just the beauty of the bride and groom on the ride.
