Once you have toured our chapel and garden and have decided to book your special day at "The Wedding Chapel", you will need to secure the date with a $500.00 non-refundable deposit for any wedding or event that's valued over that amount. All remaining fees must be paid in full 90 days prior to wedding or event or it will be subject to cancellation without notice. No monies( deposit or balance) will be refunded for any reason if you choose to cancel, regardless of amount paid or date the payment was received.
Once you book the wedding date with a deposit we will schedule a rehearsal for you. This usually takes place the week of your wedding . This rehearsal/consultation will give us a chance to get acquainted and discuss the details of the ceremony. You will need to bring your marriage license and ID at this time and this information will go in our records. Please allow approximately 60 minutes for the rehearsal. 
Nothing helps create a more beautiful ceremony then vibrant, gorgeous fresh flowers. When you get married at "The Wedding Chapel" you will receive a floral package from Janet's Flowers. You have the option of upgrading to a larger package if you choose. Our floral consultants will be happy to to assist you in choosing the package that best suits your needs. We ask that you use ONLY our fresh flowers at our venue. - No outside fresh flowers are allowed. You are welcome to bring in artificial flowers if you desire.
You will receive a bottle of champagne or cider to help celebrate your special day. If you decide to serve alcoholic beverages at your event you are required to inform the guests they are not to leave the premises with any alcoholic drinks. This means they must remain inside the gate of "The Wedding Chapel" or inside the chapel itself. It is up to you as the host/hostess to inform your guests that have consumed alcohol of any kind. Your guest's safety and safety of others is your responsibility.
Most importantly you must purchase an official marriage license at the County Clerk's office located at 1021 I St. in downtown Modesto. Their phone number is 525-5250. The license is valid for only 90 days.
