There is something incredibly romantic about a horse and carriage - the slow glide of the vehicle along the road, the rhythm of the horse's hooves as they go ... horse drawn carriages can offer a distinctive way of accompaning any event. We offer our carriage services for weddings, corporate events, parties, proms, funerals and more.
For every bride who dreamed of arriving to her wedding in a truly elegant carriage, Antique Coach and Carriage offers their services to help create the romantic expression couples desire. Genuine Victorian carriages drawn by one horse are spacious enough to accommodate up to six passengers. You may select from an outstanding variety of styles and colors of carriages. We make every effort to coordinate our carriages and drivers with the color scheme of your wedding. All of our coaches can be completely open or with a closed top, completely enclosed with side curtains. With an appointment, you may come and view the carriages at our carriage house in Chicago.
