No minors under the age of 21 will be permitted to drink alcohol.  By serving alcohol at your event, you assume all liability for any damages, injury etc. 

What is the cancellation policy?

If Illuminations is unable to fulfill their obligation for any reason, the entire deposit will be refunded. In the event of cancellation by the couple, one-half of the deposit will be refunded only if we are able to rebook another wedding on that date. Cancellations made within 30 days from the event will forfeit the entire deposit, but all other previous monies paid will be refunded within 30 days.  No show events will forfeit the entire rental fee and any other fees paid.
