Limo Company Ditches Wedding Party

Posted: Updated:
 Weddings are meant to be enjoyable, one woman is speaking out about how a limousine company she booked didn't show up and have yet to refund her money. Brittany Stoltman of Ada, Minnesota blew the whistle and contacted us for help after weeks of not receiving her money. Valley News Team's Ashley Bishop spoke with her and the limousine company today.

Brittany Stoltman was your typical bride who was excited for her wedding day. She booked her hall, church and limo months prior to the big day.

"I called and set up a party bus in November for my wedding, I called around checked on prices, sent a deposit check and a signed contract," says Stoltman who just got married on June 7, 2014.

Stoltman booked with Platinum Limousine, three weeks prior to the wedding she called to reconfirm everything.

"Got confirmation that everything was done and they were ready to show up on the wedding day," says Stoltman.

On the night of her wedding no party bus arrived, Brittany and her guests were stuck 27 miles away from the hotel. Calls to the company were not answered that night or the next day. Weeks went by with no contact but finally Stoltman got a response. She learned that the company changed owners and moved from Fargo to Bismarck. The current owner says he took over the company in April and there was no contract for her wedding.

"She didn't send a contract with phone number, time, date or pick up location. We tried to get hold of her on Facebook but didn't have any other way to get ahold of her," says Platinum Limousine current owner Jesse Vetter.

Stoltman says otherwise.
"I did have documentation that they did cash a check from me in November and I remember sending in my contract," says Stoltman.

Stoltman offers advice to other  brides and those looking to book a limo.

"Just document everything and keep it in order if your getting ready for a party of a wedding."

Jesse Vetter, the current owner says he is moving the company to Bismarck and that the previous owner of Platinum Limousine has refunded the money to Stoltman. Valley News Live reached out to the previous owner Thursday but he has not returned my calls. Stoltman says she has not received the refund yet.
