Please see the available dates here.

When the contract is signed, to continue holding the date, we require a 25% payment. Twelve months prior to the event another 25% is due. The final payment is due 60 days prior to the event. You are welcome to send smaller, partial payments of any amount prior to the specified due date, so in effect creating your own payment plan on your own schedule. Please include the last names of the couple and the wedding date in the memo line if you are mailing a check. Full payment is due by the specified due date.
