My husband and i decided to have a carriage ride at our wedding and we hired Windy Hill Equestrian Center's Black Tie Carriage Service. It was amazing! We got the first ride after the ceremony to kick off our married life together. Then afterwards rides were offered to our guests and we got the last ride of the night to the reception doors. It was perfect! Just an excellent addition to our wedding day. Samantha was our driver and she was a joy; she spoke with us during the ride and kept the pace nice and easy. She also worked with me during the planning stages because for a while we were having to change when my husband and I would be able to take our ride due to time constraints and photos. Eventually it all worked out and we were able to get the first and last rides, and Samantha was there taking the changes in stride and offering assistance where she could. My guests had nothing but compliments about the carriage rides. It was great for those with families and those with significant others; it was a little bit of a fairy tale for all our guests. If you're looking for a way to make your day just a bit more special, I would recommend hiring Black Tie Carriage Service from Windy Hill Equestrian Center. It's unique and brings it's own kind of magic to the day.

What to Expect
An event begins with quality equipment. Our trucks and trailers for hauling our precious cargo is well-maintained. We generally have one truck and trailer for our horses, as well as a second for our carriages. Our horses are fed and groomed prior to leaving the farm. The white 6 passenger carriages (a dark green 12 passenger wagon is also available) are given another once over, and the florals matching your color or theme are applied. Cold weather that day? Not to worry, we've got you covered with our convertible top and plush blankets on the velvety, burgundy seats. Once everything is loaded, we travel to your location of choice. Everything is unloaded, and the horses are harnessed and hitched. Your driver and footman are both dressed in matching attire, including tall boots, black breeches, white button fronts, black vests, black ties and of course the top hat! Nothing says 'Fairytale' more than a horse-drawn carriage!
Black Tie Carriage Service is owned by the Mother/Daughter team, Tammi and Samantha. Lifelong residents of Southeastern Wisconsin, with a passion for horses and over 20+ years owning and driving, they opened their business with the first of their three draft horses in 2013. The company has since expanded and not only includes our Black Clydesdale Hunter, but also two handsome Belgian boys named Cody and Andy. Want to hear more? Just give us a call, we'd love to chat!
