Can I bring my own Officiant or Photographer?
Unlike traditional wedding planning services, when you book a package with us you are hiring your ceremony vendors directly and not paying coordination fees, therefore, if you already have your own ceremony vendors, we are not the right company for you.

Absolutely. However, please be advised that the venue will not discount their fees for less attendees. Therefore, the price will stay the same, even though it's just the two of you.

Can I have a bridal party?

In addition, the day of your ceremony, the coordinator will send you a text, so that you can contact her on her cell phone if you need to talk to us right away.

Do I need a marriage license from Florida even though I don't live there?
Yes, you do. You always need to obtain a marriage license at the State you are getting married at, regardless of where you live.

Can I extend the photographer's time to include bridal preparations and/or reception coverage?
Continuous photography coverage is available for an additional $300 fee per hour for couples who book the Botanical Garden Small Wedding package and are getting ready and/or having a reception at the same location.  Continuous coverage means no break time between billed coverage.

How far in advanced can I reserve your services or a package?
We can check availability for a venue no more than a year out.

What happens if I have to postpone my date?
You will have to sign a new agreement and submit a new retainer. Remember – retainers are used to retain a date. If you no longer need/want that date, that date will remain open because we turned people away for your date. Therefore, retainers are NOT transferable.

What happens after I book a package?
Our team will get to work right away! If you booked a paid venue, we will secure the venue right away. You will also receive a detailed email with all the information you need to plan your wedding, step-by-step. Our goal is for you to show up the day of your wedding and have fun!
