The client has paid a non-refundable deposit that is to be credited to the final cost of services. The deposit paid will serve as a retainer for the above mentioned date. The client also agrees to have the total balance paid IN FULL by 14 days before the wedding. If the amounts are not paid on time, the client understands that fees / cancellation of services could occur. The client also agrees that if the wedding date is cancelled or moved without at least 3 months notice, Wedding Belle's reserves the right to cancel all agreed upon services and not issue a refund of the current paid amount and collect the remaining balance due. If the client has not paid Wedding Belle's in full by 14 business days before the wedding, or the client decides not to use Wedding Belle's within 3 months of their wedding date, the client will still owe the full final balance amount. The client will have 30 days following the wedding date to pay the balance in full, after which point Wedding Belle's will begin legal proceedings to collect the unpaid balance.
Services Provided *
Wedding Belle’s limits any liability for the loss, damage or failure to perform agreed upon services due to equipment failure, acts of god or unforeseeable circumstances. Wedding Belle’s reserves the right to use photographs from your session for advertising,
display, website promotion, bridal shows, photographic contests, publications, or any other purposes chosen by Wedding Belle’s. Wedding Belle’s shall not be held responsible for lack of service due to late arrival of wedding guests or the non-performance of the wedding vendors. If Wedding Belle’s is unable to provider their services, then a suitable replacement will be provided to the Client at no additional cost. Wedding Belle’s agrees to perform all agreed upon duties that were specific to the package that the client selecting in their contract, and paid a deposit for. The client understands that until a formal deposit has been made, and a contract submitted, that Wedding Belle’s can NOT guarantee a date or services. It is general practice in the wedding industry to provide meals for vendors, this will be the assumed position of Wedding Belle’s unless the client specifically mentions otherwise. Travel fees will be applied for any wedding or event farther than 100 miles from Asheville, NC. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a travel quote for your destination wedding.
The client may share web/blog post links and social media albums through the use of the share functions and direct links. The client shall not copy, download, screen shot, or capture the photographs in any other fashion. If such actions occur Wedding Belle’s reserves the rights to request the photo(s) be removed as they would no longer be accurate representations of the Wedding Belle’s or other vendors work. When uploading to a Facebook or Instagram social media the client shall "tag" the Wedding Belle’s business handles in the album or photo of the uploaded file. There shall be no filter or any other kind of image manipulation added to the photo, as it would then be an incorrect representation of the artists work and potentially reflect poorly on the professional.
Cancellation Policy *
If the client cancels services three months or earlier before the session, they are entitled to a 50% refund of current payments, excluding the non-refundable deposit amount. If the client cancels within 3 months or under to the date of the event, they are not entitled to any refund whatsoever. By this point, the option for me to reschedule your date is severely limited, resulting in an irreconcilable loss of profits.
