Hello, I'll need your mailing address so I can mail you a contract. All the information you have requested will be included. You may not be aware of this, but it is a commonly known internet scam to send more money than necessary in a check that isn't any good. I can't believe anyone falls for this, you'd have to be a complete moron! But I'm sure you'll understand why I'll need a check or money order for the proper amount, and it will need to clear before I can take any further action. The deposit for the date is $300. The rest of the payment is due in full 4 weeks before the wedding date. By the way, I still need to know where the wedding will take place so I can estimate travel charges. Looking forward to hearing from you, Matt Gee, that's the last I heard from him.
