Timing, Coordination, & Great Photos. “In addition to driving the vehicle, your drivers should be coordinating with your photographer, your church or temple, and your reception venue.”

New … or Traditional

“We have a large selection of antique and new specialty vehicles,” says Mark Vigliante, founder and president of M&V Limousines. “The whole idea is to have different vehicles for every bride. Some brides have exotic tastes and some are more traditional. Everyone is different.”

M&V Limousines, 1934 Oldsmobile 8 Limousine Royal BurgundyHe recently purchased a 1934 Oldsmobile in perfect condition from a collector. “It was burgundy, but rather than repainting, we left the burgundy, because England’s Princess Kate got married in a maroon vehicle. We market it as ‘Royal Burgundy’ in our Royalty Package and brides love it.”

Some M&V drivers have been with the firm for 20 years and have done as many as one thousand weddings. “In addition to driving the vehicle, they’re assisting and coordinating with your photographer, your church or temple, and your reception venue.”

Red Carpet Treatment

Their Royalty Package includes special red carpet treatment. “Before the bride and groom walk out of the church, our drivers roll out a red carpet leading to the car. We set up a bottle of champagne with two flutes for their first toast. They will have these pictures for a lifetime and we want every part of it to be special, so we work with the ceremony venue to make sure they’re holding the flowers at the appropriate height and that everything is organized for the couple to walk out onto the carpet.”

They also train their staff to stage the perfect shots. “We make sure the photographer is positioned correctly to catch the newlyweds coming out of the car at the right time and angle to get the shot the couple wants. These are once-in-a life moments, so it’s important to prepare.”

One of their specialty vehicles brides might choose in a Royalty Package is a 1937 Packard. “It’s a gorgeous ivory color, which contrasts nicely with a bride’s white dress.” In the 1930’s, Packards were a step above a Cadillac. “If you were chauffeured back then, it was probably in a Packard. The president even had a 1937 Packard.”

After the U.S. entered World War II,  the government commissioned Packard’s factories to make engines for airplanes and submarines, because their engines were so quiet. After the war, Packard couldn’t regain their market. “Now, the pre-war Packard, like the original 1937 super 8 limo we have, is very rare. We also have traditional Princess Rolls-Royces and Bentleys, but if you want something unique, this Packard is the one.”
