I FILLED OUT A REQUEST FORM. DOES THAT MEAN MY EVENT IS BOOKED?
No, it is just a request. Once we receive your request, we will do our best to hold the date while we contact you to discuss details. Once we have agreed to terms, we will send you a contract. Your event will be officially booked once the contract is signed and the down-payment has been received. Our events are generally booked on a first come, first served basis.
