Half of the remaining estimated balance is due within 30 days of booking date, we will send you an email notice regarding this payment when due. Final payment is due 15 days before the wedding date. Out-of-State checks will not be accepted within 15 days prior to the wedding date. If you wish to pay with a personal check, we must receive it 3 weeks before your wedding date.

Installment Plans
For packages over $2000 we do offer payment plans that will automatically charge your credit card on a monthly basis until paid in full. For example a $2188 photography package that is booked 10 months in advance we can charge your card $218.80 per month. This applies only to complete packages or photography only packages & some custom additions are allowed such as hair/makeup. This does not apply to private locations, catering etc.

ADDITIONAL DEPOSITS

Additional deposits may be required to secure locations, rentals and/or other vendors or services. You will be notified of these requirements should they apply. These additional deposits are also non-refundable upon receipt as required by the site provider or subcontractor. All deposits and any payments made towards a wedding are non-refundable.  We can hold your deposit/pre-payments for 2 years, should you choose to re-schedule.  If a wedding has been called off and payments have been made, you are welcome to use the payments towards a photo shoot on Maui within that 2 years. Photos Only does not include any wedding coordination. All sales are subject to current State of Hawaii sales tax.

CHANGES

Once vendors/services have been booked and services or items ordered, any changes made 4 weeks or less prior to the wedding will be subject to a $75 change order fee, per change.  This has become necessary due to the amount of last minute changes we have been receiving.  The work to re-arrange schedules, re-order new flowers, etc., has proven to be incredibly hard on the vendors and coordinators. We also have to re-adjust invoices, and credit accounts once invoices have been sent in.  We appreciate your cooperation in this matter. If you originally book the Foundation Package at $500.00 (wedding coordination) and Photography, then at some point want to switch to Photos only, you would still have to pay the $500.00 Foundation Package Fee since those coordination services were performed.

FLOWER COLOR, AVAILABILITY

Regarding Flower Colors and Shades, different computer monitors show different shades, and we have to accept what shade comes into the Island as most flowers are flown in when ordered.  So we cannot guarantee an exact shade of flower, but will do our absolute best.  Also, all flowers, greenery and vegetation must pass through The Department of Agricultural Inspection at the Airport. Sometimes, certain flowers will not be allowed in, sometimes due to an insect or fungus, and we may have to make substitutions.

INCLEMENT WEATHER

Gravier Corporation makes the utmost effort to perform your wedding at the time and place scheduled, if however, due to circumstances beyond our control or due to inclement weather, we may be forced to change times or places or re-schedule for another day. In case of rain or inclement weather, we will either; 1. Change the wedding location to a nearby drier location if available, this decision or, 2. Perform your wedding in your hotel room or condo, or, 3.Try to arrange for another  indoor location, or, 4. If possible, and agreed to by both parties, reschedule for another day. Some locations may require the payment of an additional fee by you outside this contract.  If rescheduling for another day, there may be a fee per vendor canceled or rescheduled, as well as a second set of flowers must be paid for.  If Gravier Corporation is unable to perform under this contract due to act of God, force majure, labor disputes and strikes, or other forces beyond the control of the parties, the parties herein agree that GRAVIER Gravier Corporation’s liability is limited to a refund of the payments made under this agreement.
