Voted 5-Star By Couples Just Like You

Rev Pam's Awards



When You Purchase a Wedding Package from Rev Pam You Agree to These Conditions.


CONTRACT & LEGAL AGREEMENT This serves as a legal and binding contract between us. Please understand you are agreeing to payment in full if last minute cancellation. $200 down is required to reserve your date and that amount is nonrefundable. I will be most happy to move the date with a $50 paperwork fee. 

MARRIAGE LICENSE The couple is responsibility to acquire a valid license at least 24 hours prior to the ceremony in the county where the ceremony will take place, and that license must be on premises when the ceremony is performed. If you are getting married at Pine Manor you need a Cook County Illinois License (marriage or civil union). Commitment ceremonies do not require a license. If the couple fails to provide the proper legal marriage license to be signed at the ceremony, a $50 dollar convenience fee will apply to sign and file afterwards. After the signing, Officiant will take the license and mail USPS certified to the appropriate county courthouse to be legally files with the court. Officiant will provide the couple with a formal (not legal) certificate of union suitable for framing and most insurances, at no additional charge. 

RESERVATIONS/DEPOSIT- A non-refundable deposit of $200.00 of the cost of the ceremony must be provided at the time of booking to guarantee the ceremony date. The remainder of the payment (including travel fee) will be due on the date of the ceremony. Payment in full is due before the ceremony is performed. Both partners equally agree to cover any and all legal fees and costs if it becomes necessary for Rev Pam to collect any outstanding debt to the agreement details of this contract. If balance due goes beyond 30 days a 1.5% service charge will apply. The marriage license will not be filed until full payment for all contracted services are paid in full to Rev Pam.   You are not married until it is filed. 

CANCELLATIONS/REFUNDS - Because of the nature of wedding and event planning, a full refund is not possible. I start working on your event the day we book. The $200 down is non-refundable plus, any costs incurred by Pine Manor on the event's behalf. (ordering invitations as an example and my planning time) There is no discount for weather related moves from garden to inside. If, for any reason, the ceremony is canceled by the couple less than seven (15) days before the contract ceremony date, the Couple agrees to be responsible for the Officiant's FULL agreed upon balance due as stated above. I am most happy to move the ceremony to another date whenever possible at no additional charge.  But full payment is required immediately to have that option. 

VENDOR RSVP AND VENUE DEPOSITS will be the responsibility of the couple and payment must be made in full at time of cancellation. Refunds for reservation fees are not possible, and a larger fee maybe required because of the timing of your cancellation. These fees cannot be moved, and are forfeit if rescheduled. 

PROPERTY RENTAL & INDEMNIFICATION Pine Manor is my private home. Guest attendance to this event is at their own risk. Pine Manor will not be held responsible for loss, damage or bodily harm. You - the couple will take full responsibility for themselves and their guests, financially, legally and otherwise, regardless of circumstance, and will not hold Rev Pam or the property, or city responsible for any injury, theft or an incident not pre-mentioned here. The manor is under video surveillance at all times and no money is kept on the property.  If you are bringing cash – we cannot make change.  

  • The driveway next to my entrance is not mine. Please park on Pine Street and follow the red path to the door
  • Please don't make my neighbors hate me, and throw cigarette butts on the ground. Come into the manor, I have a year round smoking area in the back garden 

You agree that you and your guests in attendance here indemnify and hold completely harmless Rev. Pamela Magnuson, any said owners of the private property or adjoining city or private property, or any contractors working on Pine Manor 401’s behalf from any claims, actions, suits, expenses, damages or liabilities, including all court and attorney’s fees regardless of personal injury, loss or damaged property, accidents, illness, or death suffered as a result of attending this event.  The Owner shall not be liable for events beyond their control which may interfere with your visit.

THE OFFICIANT'S PROMISE In the unlikely event that the Officiant is unable to perform the ceremony for whatever reason, the Officiant will send replacement officiant, who is recognized as a legally ordained minister; fully qualified to officiate at ceremony in the State of Illinois, or another qualified substitute replacement. In the unlikely event that a replacement cannot be found, then the officiant will make a full refund of any deposit paid by the Couple; however, the Couple agrees that the refund will be the full extent of damages they are entitled to and no further damages may be sought against the Officiant or any persons affiliated with Pine Manor or
