This was by far one one of the most talked about surprises we provided for my daughter. Al is the best, he was just "easy" to talk with and to work with. That Packard was just awesome, we have people talking about the car today. I would recommend this "one of a kind" getaway package to any bride looking to make a statement.....

If I could rate this higher than a 5 we would, just look at those pictures!

Mr. Al was a pleasure to work with! My fiancé was completely surprised at what our getaway car was and it was totally worth it to see his face when he saw Mr. Al's packard sitting there waiting on us! I couldn't have had a better experience than we did with A Bride's Ride. We were truly treated like celebrities that night! Thanks so much for everything you did Mr. Al, it was spectacular!

What a delight Al and his wife are!! Al showed up early and left late just so everyone was able to see the car. That to me is someone who truly LOVES what he does and loves his brides! Everyone at the wedding just adored him including my husband and I! The car is absolutely beautiful and was perfect for our vintage wedding. The pictures turned out incredible and everyone couldn't stop talking about the Packard and the sweet man who owned it :-) I wish we lived closer because I would hang out with Al and his wife all the time! They are such a joy to be around! I highly recommend A Bride's Ride not only for the absolutely amazing 1953 Packard which Al has kept sparkly and shinny but for the company of the sweetest couple we have ever had the pleasure of meeting! We love you guys!!!

We were blessed to come across Al Timo & "A Bride's Ride" for our wedding day. He was very cooperative with our photo shoot with the vehicle and was very accommodating for our grand exit from our rehearsal. We had a short distance from the rehearsal to our hotel at the end of the night, Al Timo asked us if we wanted to take a scenic route so we could enjoy the vehicle and the time together. It was very thoughtful of him. With the month of our wedding being August, there was very much rain prior to our wedding day. The whole day was perfect though. Half way through our scenic route to the hotel, the sky started sprinkling. My husband and I didn't mind. (It's lucky for it to rain on your wedding day.) As it got a little heavier, Al Timo handed us an umbrella for the open backseat we were in. Again, very thoughtful. It was a romantic drive with my new husband. We enjoyed it every much and are thankful to have met Al Timo. He does a wonderful job and is very friendly and professional. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a memorable form of transportation. His cars are beautiful and he offers quality service. He made our wedding day even more special. Thank you to Al and to A Bride's Ride.

I was overwhelmed with excitement when Al told me that his 1953 Packard was available for rental on my wedding day. I could not be more grateful to Al for his kindness and his accommodating spirit, for he was responsible for providing the perfect end to our wedding reception. He arrived right on time, and did not mind at all that my husband and I wanted to take some pictures with his car. The ride to the hotel took about 20 minutes, and the scenery and night sky was absolutely magical. I would recommend Al to anyone and everyone looking for a "getaway car" in the Panhandle of Florida. He was an absolute joy and a blessing - not to mention his car was in outstanding condition!

My daughter was married on June 15th at Bentley's on the Bay and wanted a classic car for her wedding day. We contacted Mr. Al and reserved his White Packard for her special day. Not only was Mr. Al a joy to work with, his car was simply beautiful! He drove them all the way to Panama City Beach and they enjoyed every minute of it. The car added so much to the wedding pictures and a perfect end to a perfect day!
Thank you so much Mr. Al!

Al at A Bride's Ride is fantastic. I cannot say enough good things about him. He takes the time to talk to you about what you want and provides nothing but exemplary service the day of. What a sweet, caring man with a great disposition. You get in the car, and it is just easy to sit there and have him drive you. He is also perfect with the photographer. He does whatever they tell him to, and is very flexible about it. He gets to the ceremony site before your guests arrive so that they can see the car. I am beyond thrilled I chose to have the white Packard as well. I wanted a top down classic car, and it is awesome. It goes quick though, so if you want it be sure to call asap to reserve it. I cannot wait to see all the pictures we took with the car. A perfect option for a wedding, ditch the standard limos!

If you're looking for a unique "getaway" for your bride and groom, please contact Mr. Al Timo with A Bride's Ride. I booked Mr. Timo's impeccable 1953 cream Packard convertible for my daughter and her new husband. Having the car to whisk them away was a total surprise for them and the looks on their faces was absolutely priceless. Mr. Timo is a total professional yet is also a lovely man who truly enjoys what he does. A great bonus is that you will have some unforgettable pictures with that perfect car. Your guests will be talking about it for days!

Mr. Al is amazing! He showed up early and was so nice. It wasn't ready to go right after the wedding for the getaway (he was chatting with the food people) but was re-directable. The car was clean and beautiful and photographed well and he was patient while we took pictures on the beach. And he always emails back quick. I just think it is overpriced, the cost per hour is very large. And it would be nice if there was a just married sign.

Mr. Al and his 1953 Packard convertible were perfect to take us away at the end of our wedding evening. It is a beautiful car for a stylish getaway. Our friends loved seeing it parked by the reception. It was comfortable (blanket provided!), though of course windy with the top down. But how else could you go in this lovely convertible? We had a very nice ride.

Renee at A Bride's Ride is so sweet. My husband and I were looking for a vintage white or cream colored car, but Renee did not have one in her fleet yet so we decided to book the Model A Ford. A few months before our wedding, Renee was able to find a cream colored convertible Packard! We were able to switch to that car with no problem. She was very accomodating with our time schedule and the driver was very professional and sweet. :) I recommend them to every bride in the Ft. Walton area!

I really wish I could say I had a better experience with this vendor. While Mr Timo is a very sweet man, I was very disappointed on my wedding day. Before I speak of my experience, allow me to say this, if you're booking for a photo shoot, or something where weather and driving is no concern to you, please book with them, because the car is stunning and my husband loved it. That being said, my wedding day was plagued with heavy rain. The windshield wipers of this vehicle do not work. There are no seat belts inside the vehicle. Mr Timo could not see the lines on the road, so he almost caused 3 accidents on the way to our reception location. Although he had GPS in the vehicle, we had to continually give him directions, which made a stressful ride simply annoying. Also, there was no reverse in the vehicle, so when we ended up in a dead end road, my husband, my photographer, and Mr Timo had to get out and PUSH the vehicle. Mr Timo offered no discount for the inconvenience either. He charges $375 an hour. For that much money, there should be windshield wipers, reverse, and someone competent enough to drive in the rain.

A Bride's Ride responded with the following comments:

A Bride's Ride LLC deeply regrets the unfortunate circumstances that occurred on September 24, 2013. Upon arrival at the wedding, the transmission malfunctioned causing the reverse gear to fail. The groom was informed of the situation and chose to continue as planned. A complete transmission rebuild was performed 9/25, the day after the wedding, at a cost of over $2900. The electrical issue with the windshield wipers was also addressed. The Packard has proper safety belt restraints installed in all seats of the vehicle. A Bride's Ride's fleet of cars is routinely inspected and maintained to the highest standard, however it is impossible to predict mechanical failure. This poor review is the first expression of discontent with our services we have received from this customer. We are concerned by this course of action, however remain apologetic that their special day was overshadowed by unfortunate weather conditions and mechanical malfunctions.
