FAQs

Do you have a list of preferred vendors to use?
We sure do! From wedding photographers to florists and caterers, we’ve worked with some of the best companies in the industry & would love to share their information with you!

Question 4

How many weddings have you done?
With over 100 weddings under our belts, we are highly experienced in our industry and are prepared for any situation that might come up during the planning process!

Question 3

Is a deposit required?
To secure your date we require a signed contract and non-refundable deposit of 25% of the total package price. A wedding is an investment, so we have broken our collections into payment plans to help. The remaining balance is divided into three additional payments with the final balance due 30 days prior to your event. Want to save a bit on your coverage? Ask about our discount for paying in full.

Question 2

How do I start the booking process?
It's as easy as an email! First, contact us to see if we have your date available. From there we walk you through everything, from going over the contract to paying your retainer. Once both are completed we can start planning your engagement session.
