What a let down! For my wedding, I had paid her to deliver me from parking lot at The Red Mile to the Round Barn located right across from parking area. I knew it would only take a few minutes so I requested she stay until 8:00 pm for photos with family and friends. After the ceremony, photographer took pictures of me, my husband, and my daughters with carriage for about 15 min. We didn't feel rushed because she was supposed to stay later. We returned to take pictures at 7:25 to find that she had left. What a disappointment! I had paid $375 for her services and she left early. She didn't tell anyone she was leaving 40 min early. I know that doesn't sound like a lot of time but we could have had many more photos taken with her. What a disappointment. Make sure everything is in writing before you pay her or you will be let down like I was.

I loved Destiny Horse & Carriage. Laura was amazing to work with and very professional. She even took the extra time to decorate the carriage to match the wedding colors. Destiny Horse & Carriage were a wonderful addition to my daughters wedding. I would highly recommend her services. She truly helped make my daughters wedding a fairy tale.

My daughter was married on May 26 at the Marriott Griffin Gate. We contacted Laura at Destiny and made arrangements for the horse and carriage for my daughter and my arrival at the beginning of the ceremony. Laura was very professional and the cost was very reasonable.

On the day of the wedding, Laura and "Fred" arrived on time and the entrance at the ceremony was "spectacular". The wedding guests are still talking about how beautiful it was to see the bride arrive at the ceremony in the carriage. It certainly was the talk of the reception!

We have many beautiful pictures of my daughter, myself with Laura & "Fred". I am using one for my computer desktop page. Laura was kind enough to transport the bride and groom around the premises for photo ops with the photographer.

I would certainly recommend Laura & "Fred" to anyone considering an elegant touch to their wedding plans.

Laura was AWESOME and the consummate professional. My wife and I wanted an amazing fairy tale experience and she provided it. We had lots of communication prior to the ceremony and she understood exactly what we wanted. Although the weather didn't cooperate with our plans, Laura was flexible and gave us exactly what we wanted and kept everyone safe as well. I would strongly recommend Laura to anyone wanting beautiful and magical transportation for any big event. Laura and Fred were the highlight of our wedding and everyone still talks about my wife riding up in her horse and carriage. The pictures that were taken with the carriage and Fred were breathtaking. For such a small expense they added beauty and elegance to our ceremony and were worth every penny.

We were very pleased to work with Laura for our daughter's wedding. From the first phone conversation till the reception Laura was in touch and made sure her part of this special day was "above & beyond". My husband and I had a horse and carriage when we were married and our daughter wanted the same. The experience for was far more beautiful than my daughter expected. We are grateful we found this vendor and would recommend to anyone needing these services!

We accquired Destiny Horse and Carriage for our transportation from our farm wedding to our reception. Laura was very professional and helpful in every way.
She was very supportive and came to see me before the wedding and we discussed in detail the route of the carriage. I am a horse owner and I found her business to be very professional, detailed, and safety was of the most importance. Laura did every thing she said plus. I recommend her highly she was a wonderful assest to my special day.

Destiny Horse and Carriage provided the transportation for our wedding at Fasig-Tipton. They were great to work with and even brought the carriage decorated with our wedding colors. I had tried to book with another vendor but they had not returned my calls. I was impressed with how quickly Laura got back to me and with the great communication we had about the event. The horse and carriage were a wonderful addition to our ceremony. We recieved alot of compliments from the guests and we would reccomend them to any of our friends in the area.

Thank you Laura for making our wedding day wonderful!! The beautiful white horse and white carriage were perfect for our Kentucky wedding. Our ceremony was held at Spindletop Hall in Lexington. We had great communication with Laura before the wedding, and she checked with us often to verify the times, locations, etc. We couldn't have been more happy!! I would highly recommend Destiny to any family or friend.

The carriage was beautiful and it was a great addition to our wedding day, but I was very dissapointed with the vendor's service on that day. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, we had great communication and discussed all the details. After the pictures, the carriage was going to pick us up from the church, take us to Tiangle Park for more pictures, and then take us to our reception at the Hyatt. When the carriage dropped us off at Triangle Park (on the corner near DaSha's), the carriage driver (which was the same woman I had previous contact with) asked me "Can you walk from here?" In my wedding dress, high heels, July heat and all, I could not honestly believe they even suggested such a ridiculous thing! When I explained that the carriage was supposed to drop us off at the front of the hotel, the carriage driver stated that she didn't bring the right shoes for the horse, so it could not make it up the hill. I was shocked that after knowing where our reception was, they still came unprepared on my wedding day. (And if it was not possible for the carriage to make it up the hill, this should have been communicated to me before my wedding day.) The carriage driver dropped us off at the Lexington Center, which I had to walk through and wait forever for an elevator in order to finally arrive to my reception...not the grand arrival I had hoped for!

I booked Laura and her beautiful horse and carriage for my wedding and reception at Talon Winery and Vineyards in July. I had seen her carriage when I viewed the winery the previous October, and fell in love with the whole look! I saw her at a bridal show the following January, and was able to reserve the date that day! Laura is very professional, friendly, and extremely easy to work with! We had several conversations before the wedding discussing a schedule and some special requests, and she was more than helpful in fullfilling them!

The day of the wedding everything could not have been more perfect. The horse, carriage, and personel looked great, and I was really impressed with her professionalism and friendly personality!

In response to a previous low rating on here, I believe there may be a misinterpretation of the safety of not only the bride in the carriage, but also the horse. While Laura is very, very willing to do anything to make the bride happy and the day as special as possible, she also is very concerned about safety. There are some situations that just are not possible to do with a horse and a (very heavy, I may add!) carriage, and I believe that people who want this type of service need to be respectful of that, because it is, after all, your safety that would be at risk.

I would highly recommend Laura and her beautiful horse for this service, as I could not have imagined my wedding without her!!!!!!!

I heard about Destiny Horse & Carriage from another bride who highly recommened them. I booked it & then didn't have to worry about it again until the week of my wedding. They came right on time, provided water, & were very nice. I got married at Fasig-Tipton & the horse theme was right on track. All of my guests said that when I came around the corner on a horse drawn carriage, it brought tears to thier eye's. I would say that Laura & her team helped make my wedding truly a fairy tale.
