Terms of Service

Applicability

By using the Kevin O'Brien Ceremonies (hereafter referred to as "we", "our", or "us") website, you agree to our terms of service.

These Terms of Service are effective immediately for all products or services purchased through this site. The Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement between the parties and may not be modified except in writing signed by both parties. No other representations or promises have been made except those that are set out in the terms below.


Cancellation of Services

In the event that the officiant is unable to perform the ceremony due to illness, hospitalization, family emergency, transportation breakdown, or any other unforeseeable causes, he will make every possible attempt to notify the couple. The couple will receive a full refund for all pre-paid services, and couple agrees that the officiant will NOT be held liable for any damages (including punitive) due to the non-performance of the ceremony.

If the couple cancels services after the couple and officiant have had a consultation and a draft of the ceremony has been presented to the couple, 100% of the total amount of this contract (minus travel and rehearsal fees) must be paid to the officiant. If the ceremony draft has not been presented to the couple, but consultation has taken place, 75% of the total amount of this contract must be paid to the officiant.

Cancellations within 14 calendar days of the wedding date require payment of the full contract (minus travel and rehearsal fees).


Wedding Date Change

If you need to change your wedding date or time, and the officiant is available on the new date, the couple will be charged a $25 change fee. If the officiant is unable to officiate the ceremony on the new date, and consultation has taken place, and the couple has received a draft of the ceremony, the full contracted amount is due to the officiant (minus travel and rehearsal fees). 


Marriage License

For a legal marriage to take place, the couple must obtain a valid marriage license in the state where the ceremony will take place. The marriage license needs to be presented to the officiant BEFORE the ceremony. Failure to have a valid license means that the officiant cannot perform a legal marriage ceremony. Two adult witnesses are also required to be present. The officiant will file the license with the appropriate clerk’s office within 7 days of the wedding ceremony.


Wedding Ceremony

The wedding ceremony must start within thirty (30) minutes of the agreed upon time. An additional fee of $50 will be assessed for every one-half (1/2) hour past the start time. The officiant may not be able to stay over time. 

The officiant will arrive at least thirty (30) minutes prior to the scheduled ceremony time and stay for thirty (30) minutes after the ceremony. 

Should the ceremony venue charge a parking fee, the couple agrees to pay the officiant's parking fee.


Additional Materials

The couple accepts responsibility for purchasing items needed to perform the wedding ceremony, including, but not limited to, items such as unity candles, sand, roses, etc., unless previously stated.
