    SO amazing!

    My fiance and I booked the BSS in the winter, and we were SO lucky that even with COVID-19 we could have the wedding of our dreams. Jeff & Melissa have done amazing things with their property - and every time we go back there is something else phenomenal that they have created. This venue is such an amazing option for an outdoor wedding. Jeff and Melissa were very responsive and were open to trying different things and helping us work through the issues!
    I would 100% recommend this venue for ceremony and reception - its absolutely beautiful!
    One of the technical issues that we ran into was finding a caterer that could travel to South Haven and provide plates, utensils, and cups. We used Gettin' Fresh Catering and it worked out perfectly!

    September Wedding at Black Sheep Shelter was PERFECT!

    We got married at Black Sheep Shelter in Sept 2020 and it was everything we could have imagined (even with the rain we had)! The venue and property surrounding is so beautiful and requires very little extra decor thanks to the wonderful work of the owners, Jeff and Melissa. They were absolutely amazing throughout the whole process and very accommodating to changing plans due to COVID-19. One of my favorite things about the venue/owners is their commitment to sustainable practices. From having our flowers grown on site and picked that morning, to their policy of zero waste left on-site, it's really great to see a venue that prioritizes sustainability! They will even compost food waste for you!
