    So much more than delicious food!

    We loved working with the Black Tie Company! They provided catering services for our rehearsal dinner and wedding ceremony. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. All of our guests raved about the delicious food. We worked with Heather to plan all of the wedding details (and there are a lot!). She was wonderful to work with and helped guide us through the entire wedding planning process.

    Absolutely perfect!

    From the vendor recommendations, to the impeccable service and food to Amy, the outstanding wedding coordinator we could not have been happier with Black Tie. I credit them with turning what could have been a stressful event into a flawless, fun and perfect weekend. Every detail was taken care of, every wish accommodated. At the reception Amy seemed to be everywhere and handling everything with ease and class.

    We had our daughter’s reception on Peaks Island at Jones Landing with Black Tie as our caterer, directed by Amy Collins. Black Tie was fabulous from food to set up/break down, and Amy was truly extraordinary. She was supportive, knowledgable, and enthusiastic — always available to help. The celebration went seamlessly. We could not have had a more positive experience!
