Hire Us For Your Next Event

Our Story

Classic Event Cars was started when two friends, Mike and Paul, started talking about their love for cars and their desire to start a business that truly made people happy. The more they talked, they realized that their experience renting classic cars on their respective wedding days was drastically different. After sharing their stories, they knew they had to start a business offering luxury chauffeured classic cars with top quality customer service.


Mike & Mary Newman

Mike and Mary met as summer camp counselors at Camp Seafarer and Camp Seagull. We got married in October 2009 in New Bern, NC and had a Rolls Royce drive us from the church ceremony to our reception at an old plantation home on the coast.

We both vividly remember the moment when we left the church after the ceremony, shielding ourselves from the rice thrown by our guests and cheering to the applause of our closest friends and family. We escaped into a 1958 Rolls Royce and spent the first few moments of our marriage in that classic car. On the 10-minute drive to our reception venue, we took a breath and absorbed all of the joy, excitement and activity of the day. It was a time to process all of our emotions, to celebrate our commitment to each other, and to cherish that quiet, special moment between us. We’ll never forget that time and our goal is to provide that same experience for you and your future spouse!

Over 8 years later, we live in downtown Raleigh with our two daughters. We love hosting parties, bringing people together, building community and celebrating all of life’s special moments!

Paul & Caitie Duncan

Paul and Caitie met skiing on a spring break trip to Mont Tremblant, Canada.  After 5 years of dating, we tied the knot in May 2010 on George Washington’s River Farm in Alexandria, VA.

At the end of the night, we had arranged a luxury car to take us away. Something that would take us to our reception hotel in style! To our surprise, it was an older SUV (with no class at all). We weren’t going to let that damper the night but it certainly wasn’t the way we had envisioned leaving. After that, we knew we’d want to provide an upfront and clear expectation for our future clients! After years of friendship with the Newman’s, we were excited to partner with them to ensure our luxury transportation services were as pleasant as theirs.

We live in North Raleigh with our two kids and dog.  Paul dad and stepmom own and operates a wedding venue in Mocksville, NC – Colin Creek Farm – which provided inspiration for a classic car chauffeur service.


1951 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith Limousine

With an exterior color like wedding white, how could you choose any other limo for that special wedding day? This dream ride will be the perfect addition to your dream day. Make a grand entrance to your reception (of course, after a quick photo session with this antique… how could you not?) or ride off into the night in style!

This princess has an all-new, reliable engine with automatic transmission and air conditioning. Don’t think that you have to sacrifice anything to enjoy a classic like this. Enjoy the vintage look with the new technology, arriving on time and in style. And if you need a little extra room, no worries, there are jump seats in the back – holding up to 5 people!

1956 Bentley Silver Cloud

Similar to his older brother, this classic is one smooth ride! Between the engine, transmission, suspension, breaks, AC and CD player, you’ll have a hard time believing it’s 60+ years old.

With a plush interior like this, you’ll think you’re floating on a cloud. Take your special someone around town on their special day. This is perfect for the birthdays, anniversaries or prom nights.
