Wait times/delays may cause us to cancel your ceremony without a refund. Comunication is key.
CHANGE OF DATE OR VENUE
John Barker of North Texas Weddings must be notified immediately of any changes in schedule or location, at least one week prior to the scheduled date of event. Notification of any changes can be made by phone along with written notice sent via email for documentation. If an email is sent, a confirmation of receipt must be in writing. It is the client’s responsibility to confirm all arrangements at least 7-10 days prior to the event. In the event of change of address or contact information (time, etc.) as listed, you must notify John Barker.
A non-refundable retainer of $75.00 is required to hold the date of your event. No date is reserved until the retainer is received. The balance of the complete package price must be paid one month prior to the event date. If final payment is not received as set forth herein, John Barker reserves the right to withhold delivery of the license to the county and or cancel your ceremony until payment is received. Upon clients signature and payment of retainer, John Barker agrees to reserve the date and time specified. The retainer is applied towards the final contracted wedding ceremony package.
If the event is cancelled within one month of the date, the client shall pay the balance of the contract due to the high probability that John Barker will not be able to further book that date. Any other arrangements shall be discussed between the client and John Barker. All arrangements will be put in writing. Cancellation must be in writing even if a phone call was made to inform John Berker of the cancellation. The Retainer will be transferable up to 90 days after cancellation.
