Why do couples love working with you?
Wedding couples love to work with Premier because we consistently provide reliable, professional service for their families, their guests, and the couples themselves. Our chauffeurs are friendly, on time and courteous. Because Premier offers such a large fleet, we can help wedding couples with all the transportation around their big event – including bachelor/bachelorette parties, guest shuttles, limousines, and airport transfers for out of town guests.
What do you love most about helping couples on their special day?
We love being part of these joyful events – our passengers are happy and excited, the event is festive, and the locations are always special. Premier can be a part of every aspect of the big day, from taking the bridal party for a makeover to getting the groomsmen to and from their golf outing, to picking up the parents and grandparents at home. We safely deliver the guests from the hotel to all the wedding activities, and back to the hotel afterward.
How long have you been in business?
Premier has been in business since 1996, starting out with 2 cars and 3 employees. Today we offer a fleet of 100 vehicles in various sizes and styles, a large, highly trained chauffeur corps, and an efficient office staff able to handle moves of 2 to 2000 people.
What 3 words best describe your company?
Reliability, professionalism, safety.
What budget range do you cater to?
Premier caters to any budget, from a single sedan for the exit car, to a multi-day wedding event requiring a veritable fleet of buses, limos and other transportation. Pricing for our services ranges from $200 for a simple sedan, to $20,000 for the large scale wedding transporting hundreds of people at multiple locations.
What is your favorite vehicle in your fleet?
I really like our Sprinter Vans. They are sleek and black on the outside, and comfortable on the inside. Our Sprinters come in a variety of seating arrangements, including a limo style van, a standard van with forward-facing seats, and a CEO style van with custom seating for 6 passengers. They’re made by Mercedes, so you always feel like you’re riding in style!
Do you have an outrageous wedding story to share?
One of my favorites is a large wedding we did a few years ago. These clients were very wealthy and they held their wedding event on a huge private ranch in west Texas. They engaged us for a three day weekend, with multiple vehicles and several transportation managers in addition to the chauffeurs. Our employees worked 16-hour shifts all three days, taking passengers to and from the local hotels, to and from the guest houses on the ranch property, and around the ranch for various activities.
The ranch had its own airstrip, with multiple guests arriving by private plane. Our transportation piece alone totaled tens of thousands of dollars, and we estimated the overall cost of the event was over $1 million. Best of all, this was a second wedding for both the bride and the groom!
The best in the biz! We love working with Premier for all different forms of transportation, and they did a wonderful job this year for the weddings of A&J, A&D, M&P, & V&B.

I highly recommend Premier for wedding day transportation! About 75% of the guests at our wedding were from out of town so we wanted to provide shuttle service to/from the hotel. Premier was incredibly easy to work with and reasonably priced for the quality of their vehicles. Being on time is EVERYTHING on the wedding day and they delivered on that flawlessly. Don’t cut corners on this vendor choice in particular – if you want to reduce stress on the day of, go with Premier!
We were both pleased with the cleanliness and quality of the vehicles as well as the drivers hosting the ride. They were both polite and courteous and we could not have been happier.
