WE BET YOU HAVE QUESTIONS. HERE ARE ANSWERS!
Q: What's up with this pandemic?
A: The pandemic bites and this may be one of the reasons you're here. We realize that you may have questions regarding what can and cannot be done and our answer is simple. We follow the state and any local government mandates for the safety of your guests, us and our colleagues. If you book a pop-up wedding now and the pandemic is still in place 2 weeks prior to your wedding date, or if government regulations require a wedding day change, you are able to re-schedule for a later date and funds will be transferred. We however, cannot guarantee that everyone in your original wedding team will be available, and if anyone in the team is not, they will be replaced, including the venue (if you had signed up for a venue package). As you may know, government mandates and guidelines are always changing, but we are up-to-date on all legalities, so we're always happy to chat about what is or isn't yet possible.
Q: Can we have our Pop-Up Wedding tomorrow?
A: Ideally, we will need at least a 1-month notice in order to create your awesome Pop-Up Wedding, but please contact us if you'd like to be married much sooner and we will try our best to accomodate you.
Q: Where will the wedding take place?
A: The wedding will take place in San Luis Obispo County. SLO Pop-Up Weddings/Le Festin Events will give couples options of non-venue wedding locations to choose from. If you would like to book your pop-up wedding at one of the venues we work with, please click HERE.
Q: May I get a list of the locations for non-venue sites now?
A: Scouting locations was and is a fun, but an extremely time-consuming task. We have poured many hours reviewing locations and consider the list of "sites" as a part of the package which our clients receive, therefore we do not give out location suggestions unless you have a signed contract. Once you have signed on with us, we will give you our suggestions for wedding sites. Please note that the wedding sites ARE NOT venues and are usually publicly owned.
Q: Will the locations be private or public property?
A: Out of respect for our fellow industry business owners, we do not offer Pop-Up Weddings on private property, other than those we are directly working with. The non-venue locations we have scouted are still meaningful and definitely eye-candy.
Q: I already know where I want to get married, but it won't be public property, can you still help us with the Pop-Up wedding?
A: We love adventure and fun! On some occasions our couples would like to get married somewhere public, but on a property (in the middle of a store, inside a train station, inside a movie theater, on a racetrack...) we are more than happy to help because we think it is exciting, however, YOU would have to let us know the location and make the appropriate arrangements for our access, then we will take care of the rest.
Q: How much is the package?
A: The complete package for San Luis Obispo county is $2650 for pop-up weddings, Sunday through Thursday, and $2850 for Friday and Saturday. Our packages with venue very depending on the venue and package/add-ons. Packages connot be modified, unless you would like to add upgrades. If you think about all of what you are getting, an awesome wedding planner, a coordinator, a top knotch wedding photographer, a bona fide officiant, flowers minus headaches - this is a pretty amazing deal!
Q: Will you travel outside of San Luis Obispo?
A: We sure will. Generally, we just take into account our travel fees. Pop-Ups in Los Angeles and as far up as San Francisco are modifed, starting at $4700 for pop-up weddings, Sunday through Thursday, and $4500 for Friday and Saturday.
Q: Will we still need to get a marriage license?
A: Yes! A California marriage license is required in order to make your wedding legal. It is a very easy process and we will help you obtain one.
Q: May we invite guests for the ceremony?
A: You may invite up to 4 guests for non-venue weddings, and up to 8 guests for venue weddings. We may be able to add a few more, just ask and we'll see what we can do!
Q: Who will be our officiant?
A: We work with a network of officiants and he/she will work directly with you to create a custom ceremony.
Q: Who will be our photographer?
A: We also work with an amazing group of talented, professional wedding photographers. Some who charge $5000+ for weddings – no, we’re serious! As our photographer partners also have their own businesses, your photographer will be confirmed 1 week before your Pop-Up Wedding, but we do try to confirm sooner and allow you a pick, however we cannot guarantee that your first pick will be your photographer. We know you will LOVE your pictures, regardless.
Q: What payment methods do you take?
A: Cash, check, Zelle or wire transfer.
