This is a very simple process. We recommend going through a company called Wedsafe. Go to www.wedsafe.com, fill out the short application, pay the required amount (typically the cost is $100 or $175 for the added host liquor liability), email Double Diamond Ranch a copy of the certificate of liability, and you are done. The whole process takes about 15 minutes.
