So, let me just start by saying that I cannot thank you both enough for all the hard work you put into our wedding. You did an absolutely amazing job and we could not have asked for a more perfect day. Everything looked stunning and exactly how I pictured it would be, so thank you for bringing all of my plans to life and for all your added touches as well.
Martin & I just wanted you to know how much we appreciate everything you've done. Our wedding day would not have been the same without the two of you! It was such a pleasure to meet you and get to know you over the course of all the planning. I can't sing your praises enough -- you are a great team, professional and lots of fun.
Thanks again for everything! You're the best!

Amy and Tanis from A Black Tie Affair provided a detailed and couple specific aspect to wedding and event planning that was amazingly personal. They made the details of the day come together in the most perfect way.
From the planning process to the big day they not only provided a professional and connected service but they made our ideas and sketches come to life in a natural and elegant way. Amy and Tanis provided excellent recommendations when choosing the venue and location of the ceremony. Their wisdom and years of design background made our decisions on decor, floral and even dress selection into a fun and enjoyable experience.
Thank you ladies for bringing our sometimes differing ideas of a perfect day into one we will never forget!

Imagine our delight when A Black Tie Affair stepped forward to
host an event for our organization in February 2011.
Amy and Tanis, the principals in the firm, were amazing from the get-go. Their intense respect for our organization meant that every step of the way we were included in the planning ultimately ensuring that our donors received from A Black Tie Affair the necessary attention and treatment that we, as an organization, so thoroughly give to them.
A large part of our appreciation for A Black Tie Affair’s work is their attention to detail. It was fabulous. They spent endless hours organizing every aspect of the event from auction items, to sponsors, to decoration, to ticket sales. Key to our relationship was the fact that within every element, they ensured our organization’s comfort level with the outmost respect for our donors.
Now here is the kicker. Besides hosting a really splendid event, A Black Tie Affair’s hard work achieved a 'new audience' for our organization. Our traditional donors and attendees to galas tend to be 50+ or at least 45+ and in NO way would we suggest that the gentlemen wear a tie, let alone a bow tie. But at The Brides' Ball, the audience was bursting with beautiful young people dressed as splendid as you might imagine. Clearly this event hit a niche that had not been explored. It brought young people out in their splendor to have fun and support a cause.
Those who attended loved the evening. And as every fundraiser knows, happy customers build great relations. That is the final blessing from that splendid night!
