Legality of Marriage: We the couple, understand that it is our responsibility to possess a valid marriage license in the state where the wedding ceremony will take place and that the marriage license must be on the premises when the ceremony is performed and presented to the officiant before the ceremony. Some states require a waiting period before the ceremony can be performed, in Texas it is 72 hours unless the couple has fulfilled the waiver requirements. We understand that failure to fulfill: the waiting period or to have met the requirements for a waiver or to have these legal documents on the premises means that Andrews Wedding Ceremonies LLC cannot legally perform the ceremony and is in no obligation to do so. We will consult with our local court/county/city clerk to find the exact requirements for our area.
Refund Policy: I/we acknowledge that the minimum of $100 (one hundred dollars) paid as a retainer/deposit is non-refundable. The agreement of the officiant to perform the ceremony is subject to proven detention by accidents, riots, strikes, epidemics, acts of God, or any other legitimate conditions beyond their control. If such circumstances arise, all reasonable efforts will be made by the officiant to find a replacement. Should the officiant be unable to secure a replacement to perform the ceremony, the client shall receive a full refund. Client agrees that in all circumstances, officiant liability shall be exclusively limited to an amount equal to the performance fee and that officiant shall not be liable for indirect or consequential damages arising from any breach of contract. It is also noted that cancellations within 30 days of the wedding date are subject to a total of 75% of the total fee.
Wedding Date Change: If the wedding date is postponed or changed, the following rules will apply: If Andrews Wedding Ceremonies LLC has the new date available; they will simply change your date and re-reserve it under the new date. However, if your officiant from Andrews Wedding Ceremonies LLC is already obligated for the new date you have chosen, another officiant will be presented to you for your consideration. If we are unable to officiate your wedding on the new date, then the initial security retainer of $100 (one hundred dollars) is forfeited and Andrews Wedding Ceremonies LLC is relieved of all responsibilities set forth in this contract.
