TERMS AND CONDITIONS : NON-NEGOTIABLE
Customer Responsibility Contract
These terms and conditions are a contract between the Ceremony Couple and ELLE LLC of Las Vegas, NV ("dba Chapel of Crystals; dba The Little Neon Chapel ; dba Fremont Wedding Chapel"). Paying a deposit or any monies is considered acceptance of these terms and conditions and accepting this contract in electronic format is the equivalent of signing a paper contract with ELLE LLC. We are very excited that you have chosen ELLE LLC for your wedding. Below is very important information, which will help make your day as stress free and seamless as possible. Please read these terms and conditions carefully as all paid monies become non-refundable upon booking and are considered a Final Sale.
The doors to the chapel open 30 minutes prior to the scheduled ceremony time for the “Ceremony Couple” and ALL guest to arrive and check-in. Upon arriving at the Chapel, you (the Ceremony Couple) will meet together with your Minister, A Wedding Coordinator and The Photographer (If Included in Package) to go over your ceremony and any outstanding balances. It is very important to arrive 30min prior the ceremony time because we often host more than one wedding in a day and it is very likely there may be another wedding scheduled immediately before or after yours (Late arrival / Rescheduling fees applies – No Exceptions). Please note your ceremony will still end at its originally scheduled time, even if it starts late.
If you wish to remain separated before the ceremony, you MUST pre-arrange this with the Chapel prior the ceremony date. The Chapel must be prepared to keep you in different locations and ensure that you do not see one another before the ceremony and enough time is blocked. This is an optional upgrade, but it must be added and paid for prior to your ceremony. Please talk to your Wedding Coordinator for details.
Changes to Your Wedding Plan
Planning a wedding is an exciting time, and a very personal experience. Each couple is unique in their desires and vision for their special day. We at ELLE LLC, in an effort to preserve your individual vision, will not allow any changes of any nature to your plan, by anyone other than the two of you, our couple, as named in your profile, without the written consent of at least one primary party to the plan. This includes, but is not limited to: change of date, time, venue, upgrades, downgrades, additional products and/or services, deletion of products and/or services, and/or any aspect of the ceremony process itself.
Please Note that Downgrades in packages are not permitted once booked. Upgrades are allowed only if our schedule permits. Upgrades are NOT guaranteed.
If you would like to order flowers for your party, or if you would like something other than the floral arrangements included in your ceremony plan please talk to your Wedding Coordinator for assistance and details.
We ask that you confirm your final floral order no later than (3) days prior to your ceremony. If you decide to make last minute changes where your flowers have already been made, there will be additional fees to remake or change your floral specifications. In the event you do not update your flowers at or before the (3) day deadline, we will default to using red roses and white ribbon.
Please note that we do not accept deliveries or hold flowers from an outside vendor if you chose to order in your own flowers.
No Fresh Rose Petals or Glitters are permitted inside the chapel as they do stain our floors and carpet. Cleaning Fee will apply.
Photos / Filming
ELLE LLC embraces privacy and copyrights laws. With cell phones and technology so readily available, it’s tempting for guests to have their phones or cameras out in attempt to capture the event. We have found that this greatly diminishes the quality of the professional photography and videography provided by the Chapel. We believe that your family and friends should be able to sit back and enjoy your ceremony while letting the professionals work. In order for us to provide the best possible ceremony and copyrights purposes we ask that guests not use any video or camera devices inside the chapel (including Entrance/Gazebo). The Ceremony Couple is responsible to inform their guests of those rules prior the ceremony and are responsible for any additional fees that will apply.
COUPLES PHOTOS / VIDEO: All photography & videography taken are done in-house by our photographer & videographer of the ceremony couple only. If time permits, additional photos of guests will be taken (photographer discretion) which will be available to purchase after the ceremony.
