Frequently asked questions

Will the site be shared with another wedding group?

No, it will not be. 

 

How many hours does the rental fee reserve the space? Are there any charges for overtime? When do they begin?

You will have use of the facility for 14 consecutive hours. This includes time to set up & clean up. (A standard guideline is: 6 hours for set up, 6 hours for ceremony & reception & 2 hours for cleanup.) The time for clean up is designated for your vendors use only.  All events are to end at midnight, not including time for clean-up. Overtime charges of $150 per hour will apply after the 14th hour.

 

Do you have a list of preferred vendors?

No, we do not!  We do have a list of SUGGESTED vendors that have proven to do a great job for their customers and our clients.  We are happy to provide that information when requested. 

 

Are there adequate kitchen facilities?

All of our spaces have a large prep kitchen equipped with a cooler, commercial ice maker, & spacious counter-tops.  Our kitchens are strictly for prepping. There is no cooking equipment.  

 

May I bring in my own alcohol?

No.  Passalino's handles all alcohol served on site.

 

How do I reserve Passalino's for my event?

To secure your date we require a 50% facility deposit and a $500 security deposit in addition to a signed contract. All remaining balances are required 30 days prior to your event.

 

Cancellations

All sales are final.  Any Notice of Cancellation made by the client must be in writing.  No verbal cancellations will be accepted.  Should you need to reschedule your event, a $500 fee will be assessed for the date change.  You may change your event date one time for that fee.  After that, no refunds will be given. 

 

May we rehearse at Passalino's?

Rehearsals may be scheduled eight (8) weeks prior to your event. Day-before rehearsals are not guaranteed and set up may or may not reflect your event. Rehearsals are complimentary if held between business hours of 9 am – 5 pm; if rehearsals are scheduled after hours, the rental fee is $150 an hour.
