Your Chariot awaits

Dependable Wedding Day Transportation is critical to keeping your day running smoothly and your stress level down.  This is not necessarily the category to look for the best deal in town - instead -- you want the "most reputable " in town.  Just imagine 150 guests waiting at the church for 40 minutes if your ride is late or has broken down.  I had one bride that was once "forgotten" but her limousine company.  That Church delay - snowballed into photo delay - reception delay - dinner delay.  Running as on time as possible keeps everything going smoothly, and it is polite to your guests as well as  making it possible for all of your wedding professionals to give you the best of their ability.  Not saying - things happen and we all are prepared-- ( that is what makes the best professionals shine)-- But everything is so much nicer when running on time.  So back to your chariot - Get referrals by service and dependibility not price. Also requesting over sized ( those fabulous stretched vehicles that can transport a football team ) then be sure to ask if they have been to every location on your pick up and drop off list so  that they know how and where to pull in and if they can turn around.  If they have not been to any of the locations than ask if they mind doing a site visit.  When we used our vintage Rolls Royce decades ago we always did site visits - for width and Hills -that beautiful old beast had a very touchy clutch and starting on an incline was a small feat -
Happy Planning -

Laurie Beckmann

I have been helping brides plan, coordinate, host weddings and ceremonies in the Capital District since 1978. Starting first with a love of cooking, I began to plan events and catered them. My background includes managing large events for Piccolo's at the Plachza where I coordinated Governor Carey's wedding to working in France as a chef on a private yacht.

The Capital District has been my home for over 27 years when my husband and I purchased a historic house in Altamont: The Appel Inn. A tavern from the 1700's, we turned it into a Bed and Breakfast. It was our good fortune in 1983, when a wonderful young couple knocked on our door and asked if we would host their wedding at the B&B.

The rest is history and the beginning of an amazing career that has allowed me to participate in hundreds of special occasions. The increased demand for events led to the design and construction of what we call The Gathering Space, a beautiful structure on our property that can accommodate over 150 people. We even added a bridal boutique where we make custom dresses. Over 1400 brides have passed through our elegant historic inn or The Gathering Space over the last 27 years.

I believe in simple elegance and love helping brides and their families create the day of their dreams, and in case anyone is wondering -- that first couple celebrated their 26th anniversary last November.
