Retainers are required to secure my ceremony services in order to ensure that you are serious about my services. Once you have retained your date, it is unavailable for other events. Dates that are not secured by receipt of retainer are available to be scheduled for other events or locations. Once retained, I do not accept other service engagements for that date. You do have the option of paying retainers and balances electronically. I use PayPal and Google Wallet or these services.
As we'll usually have the luxury of time to begin to plan your wedding, I’m happy to accept your personal check for the retainer, as long as there is sufficient time for your check to clear before the ceremony date (minimum of 15 business days). Other forms of payment can be discussed.
For services occurring less than the 15 business days, payment in full must be made through bank or cashier's check, or money order.
