LimosineReviewed on 7/28/2012 Danielle B
The limo ride was great. The driver picked us up at the church, had champagne and glasses waiting for us. The limo was clean the the sound system was perfect. He drove us all around for a little bit and we made a stop and then brought us back to the reception. He even helped all of us ladies out of the limo!
