I have one client that loves VW bugs....so naturally, I thought it genious to try and get them a VW van for their bridal party to roll up to their reception hippie-chic style...but it was not such an easy task in the tri-state area. The VW and the bohemian vibe is overlooked sometimes in our area, and I wish I had easier access to some of the companies in other parts of the country. In the UK these vans are super popular...in New Hampshire, Vermont, and upstate NY, there is a company called Photobooth Planet that has a VW van that is a photobooth! How cool?! And my favorite company that I wish I could transplant to NJ is called Hippie Limo, a company in Colorado that specializes in renting their vintage VW van to weddings, tours, and special occasions. The owner of Hippie Limo, Richard Blake, is a VW enthusiast and was smart enough to put his vintage model into good use, transporting guests for happy occasions in his restored Volkswagon van.
With vintage and rustic chic weddings on the rise, we need more companies like Richard Blake's Hippie Limo...as a girl myself that prefers music from the '60's and '70's to music of 2013 and wishes all the time that I had been around for Woodstock, I love this vibe and it has so much more character than the typical ride to the church in a white stretch limo. Throw some cans on the back or a "just married" sign and you are ready to go for your vintage chic wedding!
