We have told others about it and they seemed interested as well. I did notice you weren't there when we got back but I know your a busy person. We enjoyed meeting you please put us on your list of returns for next holiday season! We may even come back in the spring! Happy New Year and blessings your way. – Kindly, Laura & John McK.

Dec. 2009: Sally, I couldn't believe the sun showing through the rain clouds as we watched from our parking lot as you hooked up the harnesses and carriages on rainy Sunday morning. My two granddaughters were jumping out of their skin with excitement as they watched Bruce drive Prince into Nagel's Parking lot.-- as was I. Boston became a VERY friendly place when we stepped into the carriage. The transformation of the people was unbelievable, with the exception of one car Bruce had to deal with. (I would have not been so polite)!

Bruce arrived with elegant black Prince and a beautiful Christmas decorated white carriage. Who was more excited-- my granddaughters, my daughters, or Gram -- is hard to say!! The City opened up to us all the way to the Theater District. People waves, with best wishes of the holidays, took pictures and we all eagerly responded while drapped in our beautiful royal red robes for warmth on our ride. Bruce took us right to the front door of our destination, took our hands to step off the carraige and I for one felt like a Queen! What a wonderful experience and it will not be our last time using Bridal Carriage Co.

This was a perfect weekend together and being driven in horse and carriage to the Wang Center took it over the top. Thank you and your carriages and horses are beautiful and so well cared for.

As I mentioned to you, we have riding horses and a driving pony but not like yours!!!

God Bless Bruce on his journey back to good health and Sally-you are making a difference!

Thank you again -- and please let use us for a reference to anyone. – Sincerely, Lurane R., Abington

Dec. 2009: Thank you so much. My daughter and her friends had so much fun! – Jennifer K., Boston

Nov. 2009: Hi. I just wanted to write you a quick note to thank your company and Bruce for making our anniversary this past Friday night, extra special. Bruce did an amazing job and is such a remarkable person, with a passion for Boston and its history that is unrivaled by many. I also wanted to congratulate him again for having recovered twice from cancer and to wish him the best in the future. I’m sure that I will be utilizing your company’s services in the future and I look forward to our next carriage ride! – Eric A., Boston

Oct. 2009: I just wanted to say it was a pleasure working with you, even though we didn't get a face-to-face meeting. Your driver, Bruce, was fantastic, professional, and right on time! He was also well prepared with extra blankets and his formal outfit.

Currently, most of my business is in Boston, so I will certainly keep you in mind for horse and carriage rides. I look forward to working with you again! – Kristin Kim H.

Sep. 2009: It was a pleasure having you as our guide with Charlie. We had a great time, and we can't thank you enough for the picture. You gave us a wonderful keepsake that we'll always have to remember. – Gail M.

Sep. 2009: Clip-CLIP, clop-CLOP, clip-CLIP, clop-CLOP, the shop-fronts slumbered on Sunday afternoon as our horse led us to and through obtuse intersections in Boston's financial district. We had admired the Greenway in passing and made mental note to walk its paths later in the day. The carriage driver deftly merged with purposeful Sunday traffic as we skirted the edge of the Boston Commons. A strikingly beautiful woman, in a white top-hat, flowing gown, and marble-like makeup, stood frozen on a pedestal, for tourists' amusement. Smoothly and silently, she came to life, blew us a kiss, and assumed a new pose.

Clip-CLIP, clop-CLOP, clip-CLIP, clop-CLOP - Our storybook afternoon made us feel as though we were players in a movie. Passerbyers greeted us with waves and smiles. If the weather had been brisk, there were piles of blankets to bundle us closer together, but the weather was perfection. We leaned into one another anyway. This has to be one of the best moments I've ever shared with my wife.

Once a year, I've treated myself to a ride on the big Ferris wheel at the local fair. The view at the top served as an annual snapshot of another year embraced and appreciated. But that vantage point is insignificant when held up to the feeling, the privilege, and the opportunity offered by our carriage ride through historic downtown Boston, on a brisk Sunday afternoon. Thank you Prince. Thank you downtown Boston. And thank you Bridal Carriage Company for a wonderful lifetime memory. – Rick L., Marshfield, MA

Aug. 2009: I have been meaning to write you to tell you how simply marvelous the horse and carriage ride was for our wedding on 7/25/09! We were picked up at Concord Baptist Church and everything was simply beautiful (the horse and carriage). Bruce was beyond magnificent and that ride was absolutely one of my favorite memories from our wedding day, hands down! Thank you so very much for adding a wonderful touch to such a special day and I will be sure to send family and friends your way. Again, thank you, thank you, thank you!!! – Tia and Jason

Jun. 2009: Hi Sally, I just wanted to thank you for making my parent’s 40th Anniversary so memorable. I've never seen my parents so elated and excited. They had a wonderful time and were treated like royalty. Thank you again & I will definitely send many recommendations your way!! – Sincerely, Jane A.

Jun. 2009: You did my daughter’s prom on Monday night (June 1, 2009) and I just wanted to say “thank you” & how perfect everything was!!!!  The driver was superb & the horse/carriage was beautiful. Your kindness and wealth of information when I made the booking was fantastic – you don’t find that too often these days and I wanted you know how pleased I was.
Thank you again… – Debbie H.

Apr. 2009: Bruce is back with our company after his two year fight
with cancer! He looks and feels great. Thank God!

Jan. 2009: You were awesome! Thank you so much for all you did! The carriage was a wonderful success, and we hope you might consider being a part of next year's celebration... The kids had a wonderful time, your carriage and horse were just beautiful. Just let me know what you need in advance. Please thank everyone involved. – Carol V.

Aug. 2008: On behalf of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Massachusetts thank you so very much for helping us fulfill Christie’s 15th birthday party. Your generous discount for Christie’s horse and carriage ride is very much appreciated by all of us at the Make–A–Wish foundation. Christie’s birthday party was everything she dreamed it would be and more, and we thank you for your contribution and assistance to making the evening a great success. – Julie A.

We used your service Monday evening for a client visiting from Colorado. What a wonderful end to an evening in Boston. The client loved the ride and loved meeting Charlie the horse! It was a wonderful moonlit October evening for a unique adventure. – Bill W.

March 2008: This is my driver Bruce who is fighting cancer right now. I hope he's doing OK. He's a great guy, and a wonderful person. I call him every few weeks to check up on him. I emailed this web page to him too. I pray everyday for his recovery. – Sally


April 2008: Good news! I talked to Bruce, he's doing better. He's at the half way point of his chemo and radiation treatments. He sounded great! Still, he's not out of the woods but he's got the right attitude. He tells me that he's losing his hair. I told him that's only temporary, that it will grow back even nicer that it was. He's going to get a mohawk with lightning bolts on the sides like his son has. His son is 9 years old now, and has been into karate since he was 5 years old. I can't wait to see this! – Sally
