Black Dog Affairs is the product of a bottle of wine and two gals inspired by something more.

There are many things we have in common, but if one thing is for certain, it’s that given the chance, we’d get married all over again! (Don’t worry boys, we’d keep you.) Sure, the idea of renewing our vows is romantic, but it’s more than that. It’s in the details; coordinating with various vendors, designing stationary packages, spending weekends working on various DIY projects and of course, deciding between cream cheese and chocolate ganache frosting! Trust us when we tell you, we love what we do!

Every now and then prospective couples will ask us what type of wedding we specialize in. The short answer is we don’t specialize in any type of wedding. We love what we do because no two of our weddings are alike. Our couples choose to plan a wedding that is unique to them by adding special touches that represent different aspects of their lives and what’s important to them as a couple. To put it simply: it’s your day, we’ll help you have it your way!


Tell us your story, your vision and we’ll show you how we can be of service.

Our services tend to fall under three different categories: hourly consultation, on-site coordination and full-service planning. Generally, we start with a consultation to learn more about your wedding and how we can be of service, and then we create a proposal from there. To give you some insight into our services, here’s a breakdown:

Full-service Coordination

Our full-service coordination services runs the gamut. Couples have told us “this is our wedding day, and this is the location; we just want to show up”. More commonly couples want to be a part of the process, but recognize they just don’t have enough hours in the day to plan the wedding they’ve envisioned.

On-site Coordination

Our on-site coordination services are geared towards couples who are doing all the planning themselves. Our services kick-in a month out so that we’re not playing catch-up the week before your wedding or on your wedding day. This doesn’t mean that we boot you out (unless you’re ready to hand it over), it just means that we become a part of the process. In our world, it’s all about planning and being best prepared for your wedding so that we’re properly suited to see your vision through.

Hourly Consultation

Our hourly consultation services are an economical option for couples who are enjoying the planning process, but have come to the realization that they could use some local expertise. This is a great option when you need assistance with a certain aspect of your planning, from selecting a venue to booking and coordinating with various vendors.
