Cancellation Policy and Contract

Terms & Conditions:  Cancellation Policy and Contract


Ceremonial Services

Including Weddings, Elopements, Recommitments, Celebration of Life Ceremonies, and all other ceremonies:

1.  All events are “rain or shine” unless otherwise stipulated. The PURCHASER is responsible to provide an alternate indoor location in the event of inclement weather. The client agrees to pay the full amount contracted once the PROVIDER has arrived at the event location, even if PROVIDER cannot perform due to inclement weather.

2. Cancellation of the engagement by the PURCHASER for any reason shall forfeit the deposit, unless cancellation occurs within specified time frame according to specific ceremony service provided. Cancellation of the engagement by the PURCHASER within 90 days of the date of engagement shall also require payment of the balance to the PROVIDER, unless the same act is re-booked by the PURCHASER for a mutually agreeable date within 30 days of the canceled date. A portion of the deposit may be reimbursed, according to the specified ceremony purchased. PURCHASER canceling their engagement by telephone must also verify that cancellation in writing (via dated mail, email or fax).

3. If the PROVIDER or the PURCHASER must cancel the engagement due to an Act of God, “Force Majeure”, riot, strike, epidemic, or by the order of any public authority, this contract shall become null and void, all deposit and balance payments shall be refunded, and both parties shall have no further legal recourse against each other.

Retainer Fees for Weddings (not elopements)

For the “For Lover’s Wedding” – A Retainer Fee of $250.00 is required to hold the date and time of your ceremony, within six months of the ceremony date. $175 of your deposit is refundable if cancelation notice is given within 3 months of the wedding ceremony. All FINAL BALANCES are due no later than 30 days prior to your event.

For “A Dream Wedding” – A Retainer Fee of $400.00 is required to hold the date and time of your ceremony, within six months of the ceremony date. $175 of your deposit is refundable if cancelation notice is given within 3 months of the wedding ceremony. All FINAL BALANCES are due no later than 30 days prior to your event.

Retainer fees and Deposits for Elopements & Vow Renewals

For “advance elopement style planners”, PAYMENT IN FULL is required no less than 2 weeks prior to the ceremony. 50% deposit needs to be made upon initially making your verbal agreement with me to become your officiant.

So, for example, you choose the “Basic Elopement,” the deposit would be $75, and then you would just need to pay the balance by the scheduled date of your ceremony. If you go with the “Elopement for Romantics,” then the deposit is $100 and needs to be made at the time upon making your verbal agreement with me to become your officiant, then the remainder of $100 is due by the date of your scheduled ceremony.

For “spontaneous elopers,” we require PAYMENT IN FULL to be completed as soon as verbal arrangements are made with the officiant.

All deposits are for the date and time of your wedding as specified and are non-refundable.

We accept Pay Pal, Visa, Mastercard, and American Express payments directly via the Risingheart.net shopping cart, money orders or cash paid in person; these are all acceptable modes of payment, prior to your wedding date.

By accepting these terms & conditions, I confirm that I am:

* Proposing a contract with wedding service provider,

* Signing a contract which I may cancel at any time before it is signed, after which time it will be considered final, and

*Committed to resolving any disputes arising from this contract, the associated deposit, or any other issue, with the wedding officiant directly.

Cancellation Policy and Contract:  Travel Services

1. All events are “rain or shine” unless otherwise stipulated. The client agrees to pay the full amount of the service fees contracted prior to travel. The client agrees to pay the full amount of any and all tickets and reservation fees, to all travel related institutions that are required for the excursion. We require payment in full to be completed as soon as verbal or online arrangements are made.

2. Cancellation of the engagement by the PURCHASER for any reason shall forfeit the deposit, unless cancellation occurs within specified time frame according to specific ceremony service provided. Rescheduling travel arrangements instead of cancellation will be attempted first instead of immediate cancellation. In the case of extreme reasons to cancel travel plans, which are defined below in paragraph #3, there may be additional cancellation fees and contract agreements with each outside travel related company to take into consideration. Cancellation of the engagement by the PURCHASER within 90 days of the date of booked travel engagement shall also require payment of the balance to the PROVIDER, unless the same act is re-booked by the PURCHASER for a mutually agreeable date within 30 days of the canceled date. 10% may be reimbursed, according to the specified travel excursion purchased. PURCHASER canceling their travel engagement by telephone must also verify that cancellation in writing (via dated mail, email or FAX).

3. If the PROVIDER or the PURCHASER must cancel the travel engagement due to an Act of God, “Force Majeure”, riot, strike, epidemic, or by the order of any public authority, this contract shall become null and void, all deposit and balance payments shall be refunded, and both parties shall have no further legal recourse against each other.
