Wedding Shuttle Service Story


As many of our bridal couples know, Briar Patch provides shuttle services between nearby hotels and Briar Patch for weddings and receptions. You might enjoy one of my shuttle adventures this past summer.

I did two round trip shuttles to the Hyatt Dulles and was delayed by an Indian wedding with the groom on horseback at the Hyatt Dulles parking lot but managed to make both rounds ferrying 28 people round trip before and after the wedding and reception for a wonderful wedding couple. After dropping off the Reston Limo van I drive, I returned to Briar Patch and checked that everything was going well at the pool after-party.

Around 2 am, I noticed a young lady lying on the grass. Rather out of it, she asked whether I could take her to the Hyatt so that she could get her car to drive home. Telling her that she was in no condition to drive, I asked whether she wanted to stay at Briar Patch or for me to drive her home to Chantilly. She opted for my driving her home.

Somehow, she gave me directions to get her home and I dropped her off. I sure hope it was her home and assume it was since I haven't heard any complaint since!
