Make a grand exit from your wedding reception by flying away in a hot air balloon!
1) Tether package: Entertain your guests in style. This package works especially well for an afternoon wedding following the ceremony, as guests are arriving at the reception and the wedding party and family are having photos done. The balloon rides offer great entertainment while they await the arrival of the bride and groom!
2) Horse and Carriage: Yes, Liberty Balloon Company also offers this elegant form of transportation. With a team of stately, pure-bred Friesian horses, trainer and driver Carroll Teitsworth treats guests to rides in a beautiful carriage.
3) Combine the balloon AND the horse and carriage, and receive discounts on both, AND have a “bad weather” backup!
**With all wedding or event packages, we cater to you; by nature each package is highly customized. Please contact us for specific price and planning. Be sure to ask about our preferred vendors, including pre-approved venues and quality, affordable photographers.
Cross Long Island Sound
Depart from the Connecticut shore, and land on Long Island! We have a chase boat following in case the wind shifts in an unfavorable direction.
Join the elite ranks of balloonists who have made this unique flight across the Long Island Sound! This flight depends on a very delicate combination of wind and weather conditions for success. We want enough wind to cross the sound, but not too much for landing. We want a North wind to carry us across. A Northeast wind would carry us toward LaGuardia, a northwest wind would take us to the Atlantic.
We will recruit a chase boat or two to chase, in case we need a tow…and to help set your pilot’s wife’s mind at ease.
We will watch the forecasts, and when the weather seems to be developing favorably, we will go to the Connecticut shore the night before. Next morning if the weather is good, we go. If conditions are not correct, we try another time. Once we have completed the flight, you will have joined a very elite cadre of balloonists who have CROSSED THE SOUND!
