Reservation fee & damage Deposit – Reservation Fees are nonrefundable and are not included in venue rental package pricing.  Damage deposits are refundable and are not included in venue rental package pricing.  For our most popular wedding packages, the reservation fee is $500 to reserve your chosen date plus a $350 damage deposit.  This $850 payment is nonrefundable for a cancellation or change of date. There are no courtesy holds for dates. Requested dates are reserved only when the fee and deposit have been received. The damage deposit portion will be refunded by mailed check three weeks after your event pending no damages. Changing your date would require another reservation fee payment.  Upon a written/emailed cancellation request, all payments are retained and a credit will be issued for one year from the date of cancellation notification.  Note:  Some of our smaller packages have different reservation fees and damage deposit amounts.


An invoice for the Reservation Fee and Damage Deposit can be emailed to you with a payment link for a free ACH online transfer.  Payment in the form of Check (payable to Eastern Wedding Venues) or cash can be paid at the time of your viewing appointment or can be taken to the WLH/EJE Recycling Office.
