Honolulu Wedding Photographer | Vintage Car Wedding Shoot

I hope you guys are ready for the

gorgeousness

that is coming your way!

I met Dan and Sherri from Classic Limos a few months ago during a vendor meeting with myself, Priya with Hilton Waikiki Beach,

and Chavah with Vida Chic Events!

Their company has been on the island now for a while from California! They have ran their vintage car business for a number of years, transporting the likes of Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Snoop Dogg, amongst many other celebrities and countless of wonderful couples celebrating their special day!

The minute I saw their vehicles, you know that my creative heart was beating so fast! I knew that we needed to do a shoot with them!

A little bit about their vehicles:

1927 Packard

The 1927 Packard is perfect for destination weddings in Hawaii as well as all other special landmark events. This horseless carriage can be used at all-in-one wedding locations, very similar to how a horse and carriage is used providing a Grand Arrival and a Movie Version Grand Exit. We do offer transportation to and from the wedding location but, that is secondary to what our business specializes in. Classic Limos specializes in providing vintage wedding cars which creates the ultimate visual impact.
History: This “Roaring 20′s” Packard Senior 426 Touring Sedan is the oldest operating limo in the country. This rare beauty was recently featured in The Learning Channel’s top rated wedding show, “For Better or For Worse”. Shortly after that, it was used by SeaWorld for one of their special corporate events. Not long after that, Microsoft utilized this classic, along with two of our other vehicles. Its elegance is undeniable. In fact, Charles Lindbergh chose a 1927 Packard Senior for his famous New York, Fifth Avenue, ticker tape parade.
For obvious reasons, this is our signature car. We’ve invested over $75,000 and countless hours into making this American Classic available to the public. We’ve even installed a new air conditioning system. In addition, it’s our only vehicle with the old style (and still working) ooogah horn. If you want to create the ultimate lasting impression, with the “Great Gatsby” look, this is your ride.

1936 CenturyVintage Wedding Car Bridal Shoot

This American Classic by Buick was renamed the Century in 1936, for a very “powerful” reason. It was one of the only cars of its day that could hold a steady 100 mph. It’s marketing slogan was “Go Fast With Class”. It’s nickname soon became “The Banker’s Hotrod”. In May 2001, this car was featured in Limousine Digest Magazine’s “Hall of Fame”.The “speedy” abilities of the Century came as no surprise to consumers, since Buick had already impressed the world by creating the overhead valve engine in it’s first year as a company.This design was so reliable and powerful, it led to Buick becoming the number one car company just five years later in 1908, surpassing Ford and Cadillac in the process. Now you know which company became the financial pillar upon which General Motors was based.This beauty has gorgeous new white leather seats, new air conditioning, and a sunroof. It also has a new engine. If you want to be chauffeured in style, in “The Banker’s Hotrod”, give us a call.

So, partnering with Vida Chic Events, Classic Limos brought both of their vehicles to the War Museum in Waikiki for a gorgeous sunset shoot!

Take a look at this beautiful classic limo session!
