Our Policies


Deposits & Fees

A minimum $100 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve the date of your event on our calendar. All payments are made via credit/debit card or PayPal. Weddings scheduled within 30 days of the wedding date require non-refundable payment in full to secure the date.

For wedding fees totaling $300 or more, a non-refundable deposit of 40% is required at the time of booking. The remaining 60% is due 30 days before the scheduled wedding date.

We are not responsible for changed wedding dates or cancelled weddings. Please understand that the date booked on our calendar has been reserved by you and for you only, with a deposit or fee that is non-refundable . We will do our best to accommodate your new date on our calendar, but cannot guarantee that it will be available. A $100 rescheduling fee will apply.
