Client understands that it is the client’s responsibility to acquire a valid marriage license in the state where the wedding ceremony will take place and the marriage license must be on the premises when the ceremony is performed. Client understands that failure to have these legal documents means that the wedding officiant cannot legally perform the ceremony and is under no obligation to do so. The officiant may at his/her discretion perform a symbolic ceremony, which will have no legal merit, and perform another ceremony in private for the couple once the legal documents are presented, for an additional fee. Client will consult with the local court or city clerk to find the exact requirements for the client’s area.
CANCELLATION and REFUND:
The agreement of the officiant to perform the ceremony is subject to proven detention by accidents, riots, strikes, epidemics, acts of God, or any other legitimate conditions beyond their control. If such circumstances arise, all reasonable efforts will be made by the officiant to find a replacement. Should the officiant be unable to secure a replacement to perform the ceremony, client shall receive a full refund. Client agrees that in all circumstances, officiant liability shall be exclusively limited to an amount equal to the performance fee and that officiant shall not be liable for indirect or consequential damages arising from any breach of contract. 100% of the package fee/deposit is non-refundable but may be transferred to another date or time depending on availability.
- If the ceremony includes a sand ceremony, unity candle, or any other special feature, the client is responsible for furnishing all equipment needed.
- If the client wishes to have the officiant attend the rehearsal, it needs to be explicitly added to the package, and an additional fee will apply.
- Officiant agrees to arrive at the wedding location at the agreed time. Client understands that they must adhere to these times but officiant does understand weddings do not always go as planned and will accommodate for weddings that start later than scheduled, as time permits. Officiant will allow for a 1-hour block of time per wedding to give plenty of time for unexpected delays.
- Client acknowledges that some venues such as state parks requires additional permits and must be obtained at least 8 weeks prior to the desired wedding date. In this case, the permit must be presented to the officiant prior to the start of the ceremony.
