To reserve a date, we require a signed contract and a $100 deposit. Once you receive the availability e-mail, please reply by e-mail to confirm your wishes to reserve our services. Your date will then be reserved as PENDING, and a contract will be issued by e-mail. Once the contract has been issued, we allow 5 business days to work out contract details and to receive the contract back with your deposit. When we receive the contract and deposit, your wedding date will then be secured. If the contract details have not been confirmed within five days of being sent out, the date will once again be opened.
