A wedding venue in Utah has denied a family their refund after the groom died by suicide two weeks before the scheduled wedding.
Virginia Cervantes says Kevin, who has now passed away, and her daughter Daisy got engaged in March 2021. The family booked a date at the Woodhaven Pointe venue for the wedding and paid the fees, however, Kevin committed suicide early in September, just two weeks before the date.
The heartbroken family was forced to contact vendors, suppliers, and other services needed for the wedding and cancel. They were reimbursed by everyone except for Woodhaven Pointe.
According to the family, Woodhaven Pointe refused to give them a cash refund, saying that it’s noted in the contract of no cancellations 90 days before the date.
The venue has offered to provide a celebration of life event or a funeral for the family instead of the wedding.
