    Black Tie was the best wedding plan choice I made!

    My husband and I were recently married at Harbourview at Jones Landing on Peaks Island. The Black Tie Company (TBTC) was engaged to handle the wedding planning, the catering, etc. My wedding coordinator, Britta was truly amazing over the many months she helped us with planning. Because of COVID we were both stuck overseas and had to plan the entire wedding remotely. Britta was available for video calls and instilled every confidence that the wedding would fit our vision, even though we were not even able to see the venue in advance. She was great through the planning process from start to finish. Then on the actual day of the wedding, Britta made sure everything went smoothly and was very good at handling stressed out family members. Everyone remarked that the wedding was beautiful and well organized. The catering and the wedding cake were all outstanding. Guests were raving about the food! We truly cannot thank her and TBTC enough. I would recommend them to anyone and hire them again in a minute. Thank you Britta! Adam and Rhen.

    Fantastic!

    We had an amazing wedding at The Landing at Pine Point and so much credit goes to Black Tie. Britta was so easy to work with and the venue looked amazing. The food was especially impressive. As a wedding professional myself, and my wife as a large event organizer, we have enjoyed catering and observed organization at hundreds of functions and weddings, and can attest that Black Tie ranks with the best of them. Highly recommended!

    Amazing wedding at Camp Hammond!

    Our wedding at Camp Hammond was absolutely perfect. Amy was amazing to work with for the entire planning process, and our day-of event captain Delaine was also incredible. They were so responsive and professional throughout. We got so many compliments on the venue, the service, and the food! Everything was beautiful. The wedding day went very smoothly, so we could relax and enjoy without any stress at all - they took care of every single detail. Many of the other vendors we worked with mentioned that they consistently had great experiences with Black Tie, and that their events are known to be very well-run! We would 1000% recommend Black Tie and Camp Hammond! Thank you so much!
