Checks may be sent to Inclusive Life Center 4501 S 96th Street Omaha, NE 68127. A return check fee in addition to bank fees will be added to any check not cleared.
All fees for services must be paid in-full at least two weeks prior to ceremony/event date. Fees that are not paid in full prior to the day of the ceremony may result in forfeiture of this agreement, may result in our staff not attending or providing service to ceremony or event, and WILL result in a late fee of $50 being added. Any fees, late charges must be paid online, using cash, or money order. Changes in dates and times may result in a $50 change fee, if made 45 days prior to the events booked.
A specific portion of time has been allotted for each event we have been hired for, ceremonies, rehearsals and other events MUST start on time (the time that was established when you hired us.) Changes in times/dates that we were not shared with us may result in our inability to provide service and will be subject to our availability, no refunds of any amount, or credit will be issued.
In the event that we are not able to begin on time, as planned, a $75 (seventy five dollar) charge will be charged and due for events beginning 30 minutes late, and for each additional hour after that.
Events that are delayed more than 30 minutes, depending on the availability of the officiant, this agreement may be considered forfeit and he/she may have to leave to be in time for next appointment. Any late fees will need to be paid and received within 48 hours of the event.
Please reimburse or provide instructions for venues that do not offer free parking or those with entrance fees (State parks, specialty venues, parking metered stalls, etc.) All of our prices listed are for the Omaha-Council Bluffs metro area. Travel fees are unique for each destination. We will quote a price for travel that requires an overnight stay, and or air travel. We will use Google Maps and our office address to base travel mileage, normally based on .38 per mile (round trip) for car travel.
Everyone’s safety is important. In the event of any type of act of nature that involves inclement, dangerous, or severe weather; our staff will not travel or continue travel until it is safe. This could delay arrival or even being present for service. On a case by case basis we will determine how to proceed or reschedule. In the event that physical safety is a concern (fights, brawls, out of control guests, etc.) our staff is instructed to leave immediately, there will be absolutely no refunds, discounts or credit given.
If the event is cancelled 91 days prior to date, the total amount paid less $150 will be refunded. If the event is cancelled less than 90 days prior to the event, no refund will be available.
One free rescheduling is allowed if new date is within six (6) months of the original date. There may be an additional charge if rescheduling results in extra costs to the officiant. Witness fees are non-refundable, and non-transferable.
Couple agrees to provide a review of Inclusive Life with Wedding Wire within fifteen (15) days after the event. Those completing the review will be eligible for a complimentary vow renewal in the future.
Couple will provide Inclusive Life with at least one suitable photograph (JPEG format) of the event (including the officiant and couple) within sixty (60) days after the event and hereby authorizes Inclusive Life to use that photograph for display.
Inclusive Life will provide ministers/officiants that are locally ordained and licensed with Inclusive Life. Our staff will be authorized to officiate and/or perform your event in the state it is occurring in.
We may, at our discretion, use an assistant to perform rehearsal or participate in the rehearsal with us depending on size and nature of event.
