Customizable Payment plans for your retainer are available upon request. The remaining balance is not due until two weeks prior to your wedding day.
the booking process
1.) Bride Inquires

During this time we go over any questions you may have and we plan for an in person or phone call (skype/facetime) consultation.
This is a the perfect time to get to know each other, answer more questions, make a decision, see if we are a good match. Fiancé, parents or best friend are welcome.

The contract describes my services and an e-signature is required at the end. Once the retainer is established, you are officially a Hosanna Bride and we can start planning all the fun.
