Other Extras / Add-Ons

Depending on the specific plans for your event, there may be additional charges for the following:

  • Extended Travel
    • Venues significantly over an hour away incur a reasonable additional charge for time/mileage, determined on a case-by-case basis. Contact me for an exact quote.
  • Outdoor Events: Overhead shelter required for ALL outdoor events, rain or shine.
    • No extra charge if I can set-up under an existing tent, awning, covered porch, pavilion, etc.
    • Otherwise, add $50 for extra time/labor to set-up and tear-down my own canopy tent. (Photo of tent in use.)
  • Sound in Two Locations at Same Venue – For example, outdoor ceremony/indoor reception — or ceremony and reception in two different spaces within the same venue.
    • No extra charge if both areas are close enough to be covered by one sound system.
    • Otherwise, add $150 for the extra time/labor to set-up a second sound system.
    • Not sure whether you’d need one system or two? Check out my Peter’s Pointers article on the topic and/or Contact me and we can discuss.
  • Sound at Two Different Venues: If your ceremony and reception are at two different venues, and you need me both, please contact me and we’ll discuss.
  • Outdoor Ceremony in an area without power:  If your outdoor wedding ceremony location is too far from wired power for extension cords to be feasible, I have a heavy-duty battery-powered generator which can run a full sound system (including music and wireless microphones) for at least 90 minutes, which is generally more than enough time for a ceremony plus 30 minutes of prelude music before and some additional music after.  And unlike a gas-powered generator, mine is silent and it doesn’t emit fumes, so it won’t cause any distraction during your ceremony.  Extra cost: $75.

Should your event plans incur any additional fees, I will let you know up-front, before any contract is signed.  Once your contract is signed, your costs are locked-in — no “hidden additional fees” later.

Next Step: Lock in These Rates!

To ensure each customer receives my utmost attention, I limit myself to ONE booking per weekend.  Even if you aren’t 100% ready to book yet, contact me now.  Here’s why:

  • I will confirm my availability for your event date.
  • I’ll provide an exact quote and I’ll honor that price for 30 days, even if the rates posted on this page increase during that time.
  • I’ll pencil you in on my calendar and I’ll provide a courtesy notification if I receive any inquiries that pose a conflict to your inquiry.

The first of two live consultations is offered as a “no obligation freebie” so you can ask questions and get to know me better before you make any decisions.  (Of course, if you’d rather secure your date immediately and save the consultation for a later date, that’s OK too.)

When you decide you’d like to book, I’ll draft a contract for your event.  A signed contract and an initial “reservation payment” of $200 will secure my services exclusively for your event.  The $200 reservation payment will be applied toward the total cost of your contract.  Once a contract and payment are submitted, any other parties interested in your event date, or any other date during the same weekend, will be declined.  Accordingly, reservation payments will not be refunded if you cancel or change the date of your event.

Questions?  Email me or text or call (315) 542-2112.  I will respond within 24 hours, usually much sooner.
