- To Re-Schedule Or Cancel: see contract on page 1 and/or page 5.
- Rain: We do not provide rain back-up locations. It is the couple’s responsibility to have one for an outdoor wedding (but we can help with ideas sometimes). Rain is rarely a problem in this geographical location. More advice on our short Blog for managing weather!
