We are pleased to announce a new special from Uptown Valet – the Free Honeymoon Getaway. If you use any two of Uptown Valet’s services for your wedding we’ll give you a free sedan or SUV ride to the airport the next morning.
Simply use Uptown Valet for any two of: valet, shuttle services, or limo rental, and the free ride to Austin Bergstrom International Airport is yours – no special code or coupon required. This offer is transferable, so if the bride and groom are staying in town but have had a set of parents visit that they want to send home then it can be used on them. Or if you aren’t leaving on a honeymoon for a couple months and would like to redeem it then, let us know – it’s good anytime.
This is our way of saying ‘thanks’ to our clients who have trusted us with so much on their wedding day and allows us to ensure that they get to leave town in comfort and style.
If you want to use Uptown Valet’s valet services, shuttle management or limo rental for your wedding day, or if you have any questions, please contact us. Also, check out this post to see how Uptown Valet manages multiple transportation services at a wedding. We hope to hear from you and hope to be giving you a free ride to the airport soon.
On May 19th,2012 Uptown Valet & Transportation had the distinct honor of providing wedding transportation, valet parking, the “getaway” car, and then airport transportation for the bride and groom the next day!
We first picked up the wedding party from private residences and took them to the beautiful Riverbend Church in Westlake. After the ceremony all 230 guests (yes, 230!) drove to the reception (at a private home in Round Rock) where they were greeted by our friendly valet parking team. The private home was tented by Marquee Tents and Events and transformed into a beautiful reception area.
As the reception concluded guests were provided with sparklers to send off the beautiful bride and groom in our ’61 Cadillac. It was such a fantastic night!
The next day we whisked the bride and groom away from the beautiful Intercontinental Stephen F. Austin and took them to the airport in our Cadillac Sedan, where they got on a plane to fly off for their honeymoon!

We sent out some baked goodies from Bake Sale Austin to express our thanks to the event coordinators, wedding planners, caterers and everyone else who we’ve enjoyed working with as we‘ve grown. Our good relations with event personnel help us stay in business and we’re thankful that they trust us enough to work their events and do a professional job.
The reason that we are able to do such a good job is our employees. They have transitioned with us as we have moved from a valet company to a full-service transportation company; they shift from valets to parking managers to shuttle coordinators and to chauffeurs as needed without missing a beat, and we couldn’t be the company we are today without the hard work put in by our employees.
We’re thankful for all of our patrons as well. Our word of mouth reputation means a lot of us and we’re always pleased to learn when we’ve gotten work because someone hiring out our services was so satisfied that they’d mention us to a friend.
We’re excited to move into our fifth year as we continue our transition towards becoming a one stop company for any and all transportation needs. More than just providing services, Uptown Valet and Transportation creates relationships; our friendships with planners and coordinators, patrons new and old, and with and amongst our employees are what define us as a company. and we look forward to celebrating our fifth anniversary with all these people, as well as plenty new ones, next year.

Uptown Valet is proud to announce that we have offered our services to Your Ride is Here, a non-profit company arranging transportation for cancer patients who might not otherwise have it. They take offers from volunteers to help with transportation and through our work with Concord Limousine we’re able to volunteer our fleet of luxury vehicles. They recently were featured on CNN and have received attention as another one of their partners is John Eagle European – a luxury car dealership. We look forward to working with Your Ride is Here in the future and are happy for the opportunity to contribute back to our community. See their video below for more information on Your Ride is Here:
More than just valet services, Uptown Valet can also manage any of your needs regarding transportation and shuttle services. We will highlight an example here.
The event was at Chappell Lodge, a nice secluded venue south of Austin which we had visited a couple times before. There is a turnaround area near the lodge itself with several one-lane roads leading in and out of the property. There were around 125 guests at a hotel that needed transportation in addition to the bridal party and groom’s party. This event required two 55-person buses and two smaller buses for about 30 people each. Uptown Valet stationed an attendant at the hotel to manage the guests and an attendant at the venue to coordinate the timing of the shuttles and stay in touch with the four bus drivers.
Our attendant at the hotel ensured all guests departed in a timely manner and that all the buses arrived on time for the ceremony, where the turnaround area was kept clear and managed by our other attendant. He coordinated with the four bus drivers before and after their arrival and had three buses on standby off-site and the fourth in the parking lot. The fourth was used to shuttle some guests back to the hotel as desired during the reception while the three others waited until after the bride and groom left.
The bride and groom were whisked happily away by a limo from Concord Limousine, followed shortly by a 55 passenger bus that was backed up away from the fanfare in the turnaround area. The other bus was minutes away. Exiting traffic was halted to ensure the second bus got through easily and it too was loaded to capacity and departed, getting all guests out quickly and efficiently.
It was a successful event for all parties. Lots of planning went into this to ensure everything ran smoothly and what inconveniences did arrive were handled expertly by our transportation management attendants. Uptown Valet handled the ~150 guests using our services with aplomb, managed the shuttle services by maintaining constant contact between four bus drivers across two companies and kept communication with the property event manager and the wedding coordinators to ensure all concerned were pleased with the night’s work.
Uptown Valet prides itself on being able to manage any transportation problem thrown our way. Shuttles, limos, antique cars, valets, and any mixture of the above – and thensome – we want to be the place you turn to for transportation management. This event was just one example in our years of experience managing transportation, and we are sure we’ll have many more to come.
