M.O.B.-full wedding planning contract with Black Dog Affairs
Our daughter and son-in-law have a farm on an island in Lake Champlain. Their dream was to have a DIY kind of wedding on their land, featuring their pasture-raised pork and hosting some 180 guests ... Read more from all over the country. Given their hectic lives, the mother and father of the bride felt we needed help to pull off such an event successfully. After considerable research, we chose Jackie and Leah of Black Dog Affairs to help us. Initially, they advised us on some of the big decisions like the tent rental and the photographer, but as the wedding date drew near, they also became very proactive in asking the questions we needed to answer about all the little details of the wedding. At the same time, they were fielding all kinds of questions both from us and the wedding couple, doing the research that no one had the time to do, e.g., lighting a walking path through a rugged farm field, sprucing up a bunch of portable toilets, etc. With their experience and expertise, we arrived at the wedding date confident that every detail was covered, and we all could thoroughly enjoy ourselves. That is exactly what happened. Leah and Jackie worked tirelessly and quietly “behind the scenes” so that everything was perfect—the arrangement of the tables, the display of flowers, and the guest book. Also we had a slideshow to present and setting that up in a remote tent was tricky. Luckily, Jackie confidently claimed “I got this” and sure enough, the show went off without a hitch. Many of us only host one or two weddings in our lifetimes. Most of us learn what works from trial and error. Hiring Jackie and Leah brought their experience and expertise to the table, and that, in turn, enabled us to relax and really enjoy the days leading up to the wedding and the wedding itself. We are most grateful! Thanks again, Jackie and Leah!!!

Jackie and Leah are amazing, what a power duo! Thanks to these two ladies I had the wedding of my dreams last October! I was no cookie cutter bride.. I had them finding me ferris wheels, elvis ... Read more impersonators and fire breathers (just to name a few) and they did that and so so much more. On the day of our wedding they were absolutely indispensable - everything flowed so nicely even though there were so many moving parts. We couldn't have done it without you guys, thanks again for a dream day. XOXO
