Planning your event


A 50% deposit of the rental fee is due at the time of booking.  In addition, we require a $500 security deposit, which is refunded 10-15 business days after the event, provided there are no damages. The remaining balance is due 30 days before the event. 6th & River accepts check, money order, and all major credit cards.

If you cancel up to 1 year prior to your scheduled event, you will receive your rental fee deposit back minus a $500.00 booking fee. Within 1 year of the event you forfeit your rental fee deposit.  If you decide to move the date of the wedding, you may do so, pending availability.
