Harmon's Horse Drawn Carriages provides 6 Passenger Vis-a-Vis Carriages driven by Coachman in boots, breeches, frock coat and top hat to add elegance to your special day. Carriages are maroon and black with convertible tops pulled by a single or team of two Belgian Draft Horses braided and flagged to match the carriages. On some occasions our White Vis-a-Vis is also available. Serving the Metro Washington, DC, VA, MD area.

Harmon's Carriages have been in business for 38 years providing carriages and hayrides for the Metro area from The White House to just about every major historic location in the area. We are in most of the major parades in the area during each year. But our speciality is providing Brides and Grooms with a very special ride on their most important day.

Our White Mares for South Asian Baraats are an important part of our services to weddings. We provide the white mare (female horse) with saddle, bride, and ornate brocade horse costume and handler for the Groom to ride in his Groom's Procession to meet the bride's family at South Asian Weddings.

We hired Harmon's to transport the bride and bridal party from one end of the venue to another for the ceremony (big place). They were prompt and we got exactly what we were expecting. We were able to fit 4 adults and 4 children in the carriage. It also made for beautiful pictures!

Harmon's Carriage service was unique, timely, and contributed much to the wedding venue. They arrived as promised and were congenial to work with as to how they would integrate their service with the wedding venue. In fact they went out of their way to please and make our event a very happy occasion. I would strongly recommend Harmon's for the value they bring, the folks they work with, and their obvious desire to make a lasting customer delighted with their services.

Everything was excellent!! I only wish we had asked you meet us farther back on the road so that we could enjoy a longer ride!!! You were very flexible in that you let my niece and nephew on at the last second so that they could have their chance to ride as well as my littler niece who had jumped on the carriage at the beginning..Thank you sooo much for the fun and the grandeur! We wish we could do it again!

Our carriage ride was AMAZING! My cheeks hurt so much from people waving, smiling, clapping and taking pictures as we strolled the streets of Old Town Alexandria. It was perfect. However, when we got dropped off to go runaway for some alone time and the driver went to go pick up my family so they could ride, unfortunately it wasn't as pleasant for them. Something happened with the horses and they began to run through red lights and almost hit a car! My mom said she couldn't believe what was happening and just kept pleading the blood of Jesus for protection! Prayerfully, the driver was able to gain control again of the horses and my family had to unload. The horses were injured somehow and the carriage ride ended for them. They had been riding for only 10-15 min. I'm going to contact them as ask for a discount. I know these are wild animals and they are unpredictable so I'm not mad at the company, but I didn't get my full 2 hours and it's a very scary thought to know that my immediate family and my husband's immediate family could have all been seriously injured or killed. I would recommend this company but just know what you're getting into.

UPDATE 10/30/13: Just received a personal letter from Harmon's addressing the mishap that happened with the horses. The letter even mentioned the driver saying how my mom was praying and obviously her prayers were answered. I was shocked! Also the letter included a reimbursement check for the time we had to cut short. I am in awe, blessed, grateful and shocked that they took the time to address the issue without me having to contact them or complain. Absolutely wonderful customer service and company!! Thank you Harmon's and more specifically Howard and Midge!

Harmon's Carriages added something extra special to the wedding day. They picked us up from the ceremony venue and took us to our reception. The pictures of the carriage and horses from the day are just beautiful and we had so much fun during the ride. Harmon's was on time (early, actually), professional and easy to coordinate with. The carriage was gorgeous and the horses were beautiful and very sweet. I definitely recommend!

This topped the list for making our wedding a fairy tale come true. It was just simply amazing to arrive by horse drawn carriage for the ceremony. Midge at Harmon's took very good care of us and our driver Jim was the best. He was so nice to talk to on the ride to the ceremony, which definitely helps to put your nerves at ease. I highly recommend Midge and her staff to make your wedding day extra special, like they did for ours!

Thank you, Sherry. We are so glad you enjoyed your carriage ride, and that it definitely added to your wedding day pleasure. We appreciate your posting to Wedding Wire. I believe John was your driver and he is one of the nicest guys around. He always makes everyone feel at ease. Jim was the hauler for the truck and trailer.
Hope your life if filled with laughter. The Harmons
