When I am ready to move forward with a contract, what is the deposit amount?
A deposit of 25% of the food and beverage minimum is due with a signed contract in order to confirm the date, room and time of the event.

What if it rains?
Rain back-up space is booked with all of our events. To provide the best possible atmosphere, a decision on moving an outdoor function inside may be required.

If the forecast for chance of rain is 40% or greater, the event will be required to move indoors.
