Hello…I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations on transportation for 30+ ppl? My reception is being held at the Mt.Washington Hotel and the ceremony is at St. Rose of Lima church in Littleton, New Husband. I would like for the whole wedding party and family, 30 ppl total, to travel back to the hotel together, but I am having a hard time finding a form of transportation that is not a school bus to accommodate that many ppl. I would like a trolley but will settle for nice coach bus. Any help is greatly appreciated!!

We used them for guest transportation for our wedding just outside of Littleton and they were AWESOME! Very reasonable rates too!
