Getting There: Four Ways to Make a Memorable Entrance

From: Spring/Summer 2017 edition

1. Happily Ever After

Cowboy Carriage’s dapple-gray Percheron horses Kurt, Roman and Beau are just 4 inches shy of being the world’s tallest horses. These gentle giants pull carriages for two people and draw wagons transporting as many as 20 people. For brides and grooms looking for their fairy tale wedding, a horse-drawn carriage is as picturesque as it can get. 541.728.3750, cowboycarriage.us

2. Putting on the Ritz

Some would call the 1947 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith a museum piece. Eric Newland, owner of Best Car In Town, thinks the handmade automotive work of art is worth sharing. With a spacious interior and privacy divider, the 1947 Rolls-Royce is pretty on the outside and intentionally built to be cozy on the inside. Pull up to your wedding and reception while in the backseat of one of the rarest cars in the world. All chauffeured packages come with a bottle of French Champagne. 503.936.8103, bestcarintown.com

3. The Sky’s the Limit

For a truly memorable entrance or exit, nothing but a chopper will do. Founded in 1983, Precision Helicopters started out in Newberg as one of the first aviation training schools in the western United States. No helipad at your venue? No problem. Precision can zero in on the best place for an entrance and exit for your big day. 503.537.0108, flyprecision.com

Sean Kennedy took on quite a project when he bought a yellow 1945 Chevy school bus on Craigslist in 2011. After five years of extensive restoration, including a snazzy green paint job and comfy seats, The Vintage Tour Bus was born. Couples can rent the bus for tours around Oregon’s waterfalls, wine country or the coast for out-of-town guests, or for a cool retro way to get the whole party to the wedding in style. 503.558.5779, vintagetourbus.com
