Top 5 Reasons Your Guests Will Love You When You Provide Wedding Guest Transportation!

Top 5 Reasons Your Guests Will Love You When You Provide Wedding Guest Transportation!

Your Wedding Guests Will Love You!

  1. The unique venues in Charlottesville typically do not equate to close proximity to downtown or convenient parking.  By having transportation for your guests, their first and last experience of your big day is being greeted by our transportation coordinators and boarding a luxury vehicle.  Guests can enjoy the journey to your wedding and not worry about winding roads, directions or dark nights coming home.
  2. Our transportation coordinators go into the hotel lobbies and greet your guest with bride and groom last names on a sign.  With Charlottesville being such an incredibly popular wedding destination, there are often multiple wedding room blocks at a single hotel and multiple wedding transportation at the same time as yours!  We are sure to find YOUR guests and only YOUR guests!  Signs also greet your guests as they board the luxury coach so they are sure they are at the right place.
  3. Family & Bridal party have their own needs on the big day.  Albemarle Limousine offers sedans, 14 passengers, 24 passengers and 32 passengers, not just the big buses and motorcoaches.  We tailor your itinerary for vehicles to make multiple runs to first pick up the bride and bridesmaids, then the groom and groomsmen.  Another run needed for family to come early for photos?  No problem!
  4. Not every guest wants to dance until the end, so we always like to have the bus at the ready for an early transport back to the hotels.  Our Wedding specialist works with you on your timing of the day to be sure that the vehicle is schedule for the non night owls to get home earlier in the evening and then back for the final run.
  5. At the end of night the buses will take your guests to their preferred hotels.  We are also happy to run one bus to the corner or downtown mall for those who are not ready to give up the party.  You can have alcohol on our buses, which is not the case with most transportation companies in the area.

Charlottesville Concert Transportation, Punch Brothers at the Paramount

Charlottesville Concert Transportation, Punch Brothers at the Paramount

Charlottesville Concert Transportation

We loved providing concert transportation last night for the Punch Brother's Concert! Being a part of the Punch Brother's at the Paramount Theater in Charlottesville, VA was electric.  The quintet was in rare form as they played for two hours to a sold out Charlottesville crowd.  Banjoist, Noam Pikelny, joked during a tuning break that for their song about beer, The Hops of Guldenberg, that for a Charlottesville crowd they had to be really in tune for the "high-end artisanal hops crowd".  

While Charlottesville's artisanal beer was being enjoyed, Chris Thile and the rest of the Punch Brother's gang, mesmerized with their haunting vocal and instrumental melodies and harmonies. Their ability to create a soundscape that captures the imagination and transport you to their world is truly uncanny.

It was our pleasure to provide transportation service to this concert as it was a very special occasion.  Our client's, after basking in the Punch Brother's glow, got engaged!  

A big thanks to the Punch Brothers and to future groom who choose us to be a part of his and his fiance's big engagement celebration!

Residence Inn by Marriott on West Main Street Charlottesville, VA

Residence Inn by Marriott on West Main Street Charlottesville, VA

The countdown has begun and the Albemarle Limousine team could not be more excited to see the new Residence Inn on West Main Street open!  This spring the new Residence Inn with over 120 suites will open to enthusiastic wine tourists, wedding guests, and corporate travelers.

Regina Dodd and Eric Pfister provided us with a special hardhat tour earlier this week and the progress made thus far is overwhelming.  Seeing the varieties of suites, all with kitchens, and with amazing city scape views, will be a terrific addition to the Charlottesville hotel and lodging scene.  With more and more weddings, wine, culinary, and history tourists, additional hotel and lodging space is greatly needed.  And the Residence Inn is perfectly situated at the intersection of West Main and Ridge Street, so whether you are visiting the University of Virginia, shopping and eating downtown, or wanting to be in the heart of Charlottesville, the Residence Inn has you covered.   

The modern decor and styling choices for the lobby, halls, and suites are perfect.  Each bed has it's own room,  and the suites feel large enough to be apartments or small condos. The views are expansive and varied based on where you stay in the hotel.  Some of the best suites offer a nearly panoramic view of the Lewis & Clark stature and Water street and West Main Street.

Please check out the new Residence Inn on West Main Street when planning your next trip to Charlottesville, VA!  You will not be disappointed. And if you already have reservations elsewhere, stop in this spring to see their expansive and open lobby, with fire place, and bar.  Both open to the public.

The Richmond Tacky Light Tours are here!  We can pick you up in Charlottesville, Richmond, anywhere in between, and other locations as well.  For some families it is a tradition to see the Christmas lights of Richmond, VA.  Some call them tacky lights.  Some call them festive lights.  For those who have not yet experienced them, it is a must, and you can call them what you wish!
