Planning on Asking Her to Marry You?

Posted by Michael Foilb on Wed, Oct 26, 2016 @ 09:40 PM

Your future spouse will be asked over and over again about how you proposed. While some people may be able to set up a flash mob to sing and perform a choreographed dance to Marry that Girl (I'm going to Marry Her Anyway) and others may buy a full page ad in the New York Times or hire a private jet to fly off to Paris, for most of us, the elaborate over-the-top proposal plan just isn't feasible. But you can afford to have her engagement story start with..."he picked me up in a limo."

Simple, romantic, elegant and impressive, what a great way to let her know how special she is to you. Nearly 40% of engagements occur between November and February. Interestingly, 17% of engagements happen on the same 10 days each year! With plans to visit old friends and family during Thanksgiving or to take a trip home for the holidays. After the ring is revealed, the next question is, "how did he propose." Make sure she has a story to wow the people who love her.

Let us know if you’re planning to pick her up and a limousine to propose, we’ll help make sure it’s extra special!

[Of course, this doesn't have to be a plan just for her, it can be used to ask him to marry you.]

8 Important Questions to Ask Your Wedding Venue

Posted by Michael Foilb on Tue, May 24, 2016 @ 02:00 PM

State_Room2.jpg

A Nightfall view from Boston's elegant State Room.

  1. Do you have my date available?

It’s pretty much a moot point if someone has already booked the space.

  1. How many people does the space hold?

Ask about the capacity for cocktails hour, standing space and seating for dinner.

  1. What’s the fee for renting the space and what does that fee include?

Find out if your rental fee includes just the room or does it cover, tables, chairs, linens, bar set up, setup, cleanup, etc.

  1. How many parking spaces are available for guests?

This is one of those overlooked questions that could be demoralizing if they can’t fit the vehicles for all your guests.

  1. If you have your ceremony and reception in the same space, is there a strategy and flow to move guests? How much time do you need to transition from one activity to another?

Make sure that there’s a logical time frame from ceremony to reception. Do you need to plan on 2 hours for cocktails while the room gets reconfigured?

  1. If part of the plan is to be outside, is there an option to move inside with limited notice if there’s a weather problem?

Isn’t it ironic? Like rain on your wedding day…make sure you’re covered.

  1. Is there a suite or dressing room for the bride and groom?

You need to get ready, but do they have space for you to do that at the venue?

  1. On the money front, how much is the deposit? When is the balance due? What forms of payment to you take? What’s your cancelation policy?

It’s important to know how much you’re committing financial to the space. There may be advantages to you if you pay be credit card because you may be able to cancel the charge if something goes wrong. There are also benefits to the venue if you don’t use a card, because they can avoid paying credit card fees.

Ask the questions so you know everything you need know before you make a financial commitment. Your emotional commitment is to your future spouse not to the venue. Do what’s best for you, air all your concerns before you finalize your plans. Most off all have fun on your special day.

7 Tips for Getting Ready for Your Wedding Photo Shoot

Posted by Michael Foilb on Wed, May 18, 2016 @ 09:01 PM

WeddingPhotography.jpgA great photographer will capture the elements that make your day spectacular.

1. Finalize (and Stick to) the Wedding Day Schedule

Make sure to tell your photographer your final schedule for your wedding day.  She’ll need that information to plan your shoot and to take advantage of any opportunities to use natural lighting. Stay on schedule, being late not only interrupts the photographer’s schedule; it can impact all your vendors from your transportation and cocktail hour to food and music.

2. Restrict the Use of Your Guests Picture Taking

One of the most frustrating things for a wedding photog is when someone jumps into the aisle to snap a picture when he had lined up the perfect shot. Ask your guest not to interfere with keep photo moments.

3. Get a Second Shooter

When you think about the financial commitment you made to this day, skimping on photography can cause you to miss capturing precious moments.  The second photographer offers another unique point of view throughout the entire day that you would have been missed if he wasn’t on the scene.

4. The Pursuit of Perfection

Let it go. If you harp on making sure everyone does what you expect you’ll have a tough time enjoying your day. Communicate your goals clearly and then let the pros take over. You goal is to just have fun and keep smiling.

5. Schedule Time for Your "First Look"

Plan the 'first look' photo session before the ceremony.  Don’t try to squeeze in picture time. Make a commitment so there’s time to properly capture the moment.

6. Candids vs. Posed

If you want your album to include candid images don’t feel obligated to to look up at the camera and stop what you’re doing. If the photographer needs a posed shot, she’ll tell you what to do.

7. Don’t forget the Details

Spend some time thinking about what other aspects of the day are important to photograph -- did your aunt make flower arrangements? Did you bring special heirlooms from your family? Bring an extra invitation; keep those special elements easily accessible for your photo shoot.

There are other things you can do to ensure that your photographer captures the key moments of your wedding day. Utlimately, the goal is to communicate with her to make sure she understands what you want her to do. Most of all enjoy the day.

Posted by Michael Foilb on Tue, Oct 21, 2014 @ 03:19 PM

Trolley and Rolls Royce
Le Limo's Custom-Built Luxury Trolley paired with our Vintage Rolls Royce in the autumn sun.
One of the most popular choices for wedding parties is the combination of our 1960 Silver Cloud Rolls Royce and our Custom-Built Luxury Trolley. Typically, the bride and groom travel to and from the reception in the Rolls as well as stop for a photo shoot. The Rolls makes for stunning scenery behind a beautiful bride. The trolley is used to transport bridal parties and wedding guests. With the increased liability on the hosts for drinking and driving, the trolley is a high class way to get your group to and from the event safely.

The Trolley
The Custom-Built Luxury Trolley is a magnificent vehicle equipped to seat 36 passengers. This Trolley has plush leather perimeter seating, wood grain exterior trim, LED accent lighting, it’s adorned with metallic gold graphics, oak interior trim, classic brass hand rails, brass bell with pull ringer, it has an onboard mini bar with glass stemware, a premium sound system, and an electronic front designation sign. The trolley was custom designed for Le Limo by Cable Car Classics in San Francisco, CA, it is is the first of its kind in the US.

1960 Silver Cloud Rolls Royce
This car is the epitome of class and refinement. The snow-white 1960 Silver Cloud Rolls Royce preserves its vintage appearance with its immortal "Spirit of Ecstasy" hood ornament, its memorable lines and its traditional wide white wall tires. The Rolls has fully restored classic features, a dove grey leather interior with beautiful burled walnut trim and has A/C for those hot summer weddings. It is the quintessential backdrop for photographs and a favorite with our brides who want to make their special day even more memorable.

These are genuinely unique transportation options that truly exemplify the elegance of your special day. Of course, we have more traditional options as well with our fleet which includes limos, Mercedes Sprinters, Party Buses, stretch SUVs and more. However, we only have one Trolley and one Rolls and sometimes they are booked over a year in advance.
