In order to secure an event date, a non-refundable deposit of $1000 is required. A non-refundable payment of 50% of the estimated balance is required 30 days before the event. Events which are canceled or changed less than 5 days prior to the event will result in a 100% charge of all items ordered, to include menu as stated, flowers, and all deposits paid on subcontracted services (tents, musicians, etc.).
A final guest count is required 1 week before the event. The final guest count is not subject to reduction. An increase by as much as 5% in the final count is permitted up to 24 hours prior to the event. The final bill will be based on the final guest count, 7% MA meals tax, a charge for service and any rentals that have been arranged for. The remaining balance is due in full on the day of the event.
The charge for service is calculated to include staffing for a scheduled number of hours, bar service and liability insurance. In the event that staff members are required to remain beyond the time agreed upon, an additional charge of $25.00 per hour, per staff member will be charged. (Contracted time may not exceed a total of 8 hours.)
The charge for service does not reflect a gratuity.
