Agreed upon rental time and venue access

If you wish to have additional time you will need to book more than one time slot.

 

If agreement is breached and additional time is used the cost will be deducted from the security deposit.

 

Punctuality in both arrival and departure are necessary to avoid overtime charges and to prevent potential conflicts with other events that may be taking place before or after your rental time.  This includes your guests, officiant, photographers etc.
