When choosing Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations as your wedding vendor, you will be assigned an Event Coordinator. The Event Coordinator will meet with you to discuss home options, event details, prices, and vendor options. The Event Coordinator will help carry out details for the event by making sure all vendors are on time and setting up according to Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations regulations. The Event Coordinator will file necessary paperwork to host a wedding at a Transient Vacation Rental Unit. The Event Coordinator will give the guest a Preferred Vendor List, but will not contact vendors for the guest. All external vendors will deal directly with the guest.
What does the event fee & security deposit cover?
As with any event venue or facility, there is an event fee and security deposit associated with the rental of an event home for a wedding. The event fee is necessary due to the extra usage of the home during the event. Please understand that the typical number of people in a weekly occupancy is far less than that during an event. This fee also covers a deep clean of the home after departure, necessary trash removal within 24 hours of the event, and Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacation Event Coordinating Services. The event fee does not cover damages to the property, excessive carpet cleaning, or excessive trash removal.
The security deposit is refundable; pending no damage is done to the home or property during your reservation or event. The security deposit will be used to pay for all pet damage (if you are renting a home that allows pets), any necessary carpet cleaning, excessive trash removal, lawn repair, other damages and so forth.
Does Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations provide wedding planning services?
The event team at Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations provides you with an Event Coordinator, not a wedding planner. The Event Coordinator will meet with guests to discuss home options, event details, prices, and vendor options. The Event Coordinator will be on site for the duration of the wedding and help carry out details for the wedding by making sure all vendors are on time and setting up according to Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations regulations. The Event Coordinator will file necessary paperwork to host a wedding at a Transient Vacation Rental Unit. The Event Coordinator will give the guest a Preferred Vendor List, but will not contact vendors for the guest. All external vendors will deal directly with the guest.
What do I need to be legally married in Deep Creek Lake, MD?
You must apply in person to:
Garrett County Court House
203 S. 4th Street, Room #109
Oakland, MD 21550
The Courthouse is open from 8:30 am – 3:45pm, Monday through Friday (excluding holidays). It is a $40 fee.
If the future bride and groom are 25 years of age, only 1 person need apply. They will require the following information from both parties:
Name, Address, Date of Birth and Social Security number
If the future bride and groom are under the age of 25, proof of age is required (ex. Driver’s license).
If either party is divorced, you must present the Divorce Decree. You may use the marriage license 2 days after it is issued and it is good for 6 months after it is issued.
Are there Noise Ordinances in the town that will affect my reception?
The Maryland Department of Environment Noise Regulation prohibits noise levels exceeding 65 dBA (day) and 55 dBA (night). All outdoor events must conclude by 9 p.m. Please notify your entertainment vendor of these laws.
We suggest that during the course of the week, you notify the neighbors of your plans. Let them know the date, the time, and maybe even invite them. Most of the surrounding homes will probably be rental houses, but there may be some local residents as well. Most of the time, by making others aware of your event, there will be no surprises and it will avoid future conflict.
Where can my guests park?
Many of our event homes do not offer enough parking spaces for all of your guests. All overnight parking at the home may not exceed the limit posted.
You may use any of the space at our Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations offices for additional guest parking. Each office offers additional space that may solve your parking problem by hiring a transportation service to shuttle guests from the lot to the wedding location. The Event Coordinator will be able to offer other suggestions for parking as well.
What do you recommend in the event of inclement weather?
It is a good idea to have a backup plan in place for your special day in the event that there is inclement weather. Please understand that we are subject to adverse weather conditions including rain, snow, ice, heavy wind, etc. Due to Transient Vacation Rental Unit regulations, the wedding may not be moved inside the home. We strongly recommend the usage of outdoor tents. The event coordinator can assist you in creating a back-up plan in the case of inclement weather.
Refunds cannot be made due to inclement weather.
Are we allowed to decorate the home for the wedding?
As long as you are not doing any damage to the home, you may decorate the home as you prefer. However, all decorations require prior approval from Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations; fireworks are strictly prohibited! Guests are responsible for all decorating as well as cleaning up all decorations.
The natural setting of the Deep Creek Lake area is beautiful in itself; sometimes less is more. Go ahead, be imaginative and have fun decorating, but remember to be respectful of the home and its pure environment.
