Frequently Asked Questions
Whether you're planning to walk down the aisle in style, throw that swanky cocktail party your employees and clients will remember for years to come, or simply celebrate the next big milestone in your loved one's life Ron Sanford Productions can help plan, produce, and design your special event. We know that making dreams become reality is a multi-step and oftentimes daunting process. Here are some answers to questions and fears that can stifle getting a celebration started.
"I LOVE YOUR WORK... BUT THERE'S NO WAY I COULD AFFORD TO HIRE YOU."
Fear not bride-to-be, gallant grooms, heroic non-profit organizers, and brilliant bosses! Ron Sanford Productions lives for a creative challenge and hates seeing bad parties happen to good people. We do it all from big, black-tie galas for national charities to small, intimate elopements.
"What is your deposit policy?"
Ron Sanford Productions requires a 50% deposit upon agreement of date and initial quote. This secures your desired date and equipment necessary.
"DO YOU ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS?"
Yes, we do! Ron Sanford Productions charges a 3% credit card processing fee per transaction. We also accept cash and check.
"HOW MUCH WILL IT COST FOR YOU TO PRODUCE MY WEDDING/PARTY/GALA?"
Due to the individualistic nature of this process, every event is different. Don't let this spook you away from reaching out to us, though. We should always be able to present a quote to you and we are able to accomodate all price ranges.
"CAN YOU GIVE ME A QUOTE OVER THE PHONE?"
Ron is a people person and prefers meeting face-to-face with prospective clients. While we can typically give quotes for smaller jobs via email or phone, we really think it's best to meet up with our clients in order to perfectly capture their visions and get to know your personality and tastes.
"I'm worried I live too far away to hire you."
Ron Sanford Productions is based in Nashville, TN; however, we routinely work outside of the Nashville-Metro and Middle TN areas to work in cities like Atlanta, Louisville, Lexington, Memphis, Knoxville, and we even produce pageants in Houston and New Orleans! If you pay for our airfare and other travel expenses, the sky is literally the limit to what we can do for you. Please call us to discuss any out of state or country events.
"What if I want a specific prop or item for my event?"
That's great! We love making custom items such as set-pieces, back-drops, marquee signs, etc. for clients! It's a win-win since it's creatively-engaging and steers your event away from looking too cookie-cutter. If you're just dying to have that rustic, birch chuppah you saw on Pinterest or a giant, gilded gong for your stage show we will happily make it for you!
"Are you lgbtqia friendly?"
Even though Ron has 25+ years' experience in the event industry, Ron Sanford Productions was technically born shortly after the Obergefell v. Hodges ruling in the US Supreme Court in 2015. We are currently the producers of the Miss Gay America pageant and are involved with the Miss Gay U.S. of A. pageant system. Ron Sanford Productions is a member of the Nashville LGBT Chamber of Commerce and Tennessee Thrives. We were also picked by "Out & About Nashville" as Best Wedding Coordinator in their 2016 faves and raves edition! We love all our clients, regardless of who they love.
"Do you offer day-of coordination?"
Ron Sanford Productions offers a range of services dependent upon each client's needs and budget. We offer everything from day-of coordination to full-service planning, designing, and production. Contact us today if you need somebody to wrangle all your vendors together during your big day so you can enjoy it.
