Can you provide floral & décor?
Yes, we are happy to coordinate florals on your behalf & can connect you with floral designers, decorators & lighting specialists.
What is your payment & cancellation policy?
Events under $2,000 require a payment method to confirm the order. Events above that amount require:
- A $500 “save the date” deposit to confirm. This goes toward the balance of your event & is non-refundable.
- No later than 30 days prior to the date of your event, we request a signed contract & 50% balance payment.
- On or before the date of your event, we request payment in full, minus final adjustable charges (i.e. actual staffing hours).
- Final guest count is due 14 days prior to your event. Any last-minute additions will always be taken under consideration.
- For cancellations 30 days or more prior to your event, a full refund will be given minus the “save the date” deposit. For cancellations within less than 30 days of the event, refunds will be prorated based on the amount of notice, labor & products purchased for your event.
