A wedding can be cancelled at anytime. In the case of a cancellation we will need in writing from the bride and or groom that the wedding is actually cancelled. We cannot accept the word of any other family member or friend.
How An Officiant Is Assigned
Officiants are assigned to a couple by our booking specialist. We do not allow interviewing of multiple associates. We do not send out multiple profiles for review. Officiant assignment is based on the availability and location of our officiants. Requests for a particular officiant is encouraged.
It is our policy that the officiant you meet and book with is the officiant who will perform your ceremony. However, there are times when they may not be able to make the ceremony. Reasons may include, but are not limited to: traffic, sickness, a death in the family, or the officiant leaves our team. In the case where the officiant you booked is not available, another member of the KCW team will perform the ceremony. A new officiant will be assigned based on who is available and arrangements will be made to connect the new officiant with the couple if time allows.
All deposits are refundable when cancellation is within 10 days of the booking date on the contract minus an administration fee of $25.00. No refunds are given for cancellations after 10 days of booking.
Balance payments are refundable only if cancellation is within 10 days of the booking date on the contract. Balances paid after the first 10 days of booking are not refundable.
