Cancellation

WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL MY EVENT?
Your event will be confirmed in our calendar once we've received the 25% non-refundable deposit.  At that time, we have removed that date and time from our availability and it is held for you.  If you need to cancel anytime after booking, there will be a cancellation penalty.

If you do need to cancel your event for any reason, we kindly ask that you let us know as soon as possible to allow us to release that time and to stop prep for your event.
