The check was made to the wedding planner. That is the entity that you exchanged funds with, and had a contract with. Wedding planner needs to refudn the check. They need to do so immediately. After that, it is up to them to try to get reimbursed from the venue, if in fact that is where the money currently is. However, that’s not your problem.
Essentially, the venue is a sub contractor. Your contract is the the planner, so that’s who needs to get things right for you. Let the wedding planner know that you expect a refund of your money within thirty days, and if in that time you do not recieve it, you will contact your lawyer. Additionally, if they do not respond to, and agree to your request within a reasonable amount of time (say, a week) you will be having your lawyer contact them.

is this with Kim Herrington of Diamond Class Events?
Take legal action. She is a ‘professional’ but not when it comes to planning weddings or acting professional.
Many people have been conned by that person. In fact, there is another message board with a similar complaint and legal action is being taken against KH and DCevents
as well as other vendors in the process of fighting in court for unpaid bills.
