INCLEMENT WEATHER. In case of rain or high winds that prevent us from having your outdoor beach wedding, we will help you find an indoor location or we will reschedule your wedding for another day. This rarely occurs, but we will do everything in our power to ensure your Dream Wedding takes place and that you are happy with our services.
PENALTIES FOR LATENESS. If your wedding does not start at the time specified on your Wedding Contract, the following penalties will be applied:
The Wedding starts 30 minutes late. The Penalty is $100.00 for Photography and $100.00 for Videography if you are using one or both services. All Penalty money must be paid in cash before any Photography CD’s or Videography DVD’s can be released.
The Wedding is late by one hour or more. The Penalty is $200.00 for Photography and $200.00 for Videography if you are using one or both services. If you are late by one hour or more we cannot guarantee that we will even be able to perform your Wedding day services as we may have to leave for another wedding. If you are one hour late and we must leave for another wedding all money paid is non-refundable. If we are still able to do your wedding, the Penalty fee must be paid in cash before any photography CD’s or Videography DVD’s can be released.
WEDDING LICENSE. It is the Bride and Groom’s responsibility to obtain a South Carolina Marriage License. We cannot obtain this for you as this is a Legal Document. We will provide you with instructions on how to obtain your license, but you must obtain this document and it is your responsibility. You must present the license to the Wedding Officiant on the wedding day. The Wedding Officiant will witness you signing the license and will put his or her signature and seal on the document. One copy will go to the Bride and Groom and the other two copies will be taken by the Wedding Officiant to the Courthouse for filing.
WEDDING DAY PLANNING FOR THE BRIDAL PARTY AND GUESTS.We allow one hour for your wedding, in addition to set-up time, to include pre-and post wedding photos (unless you have contracted for additional photography or videography time). We will provide detailed directions to the wedding site if it is not at the hotel where you are staying, and we will touch base with you the day of the wedding. PLEASE be sure all of your guests and bridal party have the specific directions and time. Do not rely of GPS DIRECTIONS, as we use specific beach access that allows ample parking and privacy on the beach. While it may seem that the distance is not far, please take into consideration that this is a tourist area and traffic can be difficult at times. Please allow ample time for travel. Our experience has been that it takes much longer than anticipated for the bride and bridal party to prepare (hair,dressing, etc.). PLEASE ALLOW EXTRA TIME FOR PREPARATION SO THAT YOUR WEDDING STARTS ON TIME. THIS WILL RELIEVE STRESS FOR EVERYONE.
PHOTOGRAPHY CD’S AND OR VIDEOGRAPHY DVD’S DELIVERY TO YOU.If you are staying a few days after the wedding day, we will make every effort to edit and burn your photography CDs or Videography DVD;s before you leave town, otherwise we will mail them to you.
The Studio takes utmost care with respect to the exposure, development and delivery of photographs. However, in the event the studio fails to comply with the terms of this contract, due to any event or act outside of the control of the studio, the studio’s liability is limited to a refund for that portion of services that is incomplete.
The studio reserves the right to use images of your event and/or reproductions for display, publication or other purposes.
ALBUMS. if your package includes a wedding album please allow 6 to 8 weeks for creation and delivery. These will be mailed to you or you may pick them up at our office.
