With an eye for design, knack for event planning, and also a “Black Bird Farm Wedding Mom”, Deb brings a unique perspective to Black Bird Farm. She is a lover of doodles, gardening and any reason to celebrate. Deb puts her heart and soul into anything and everything that happens on the farm – big or small – and her passion lies with celebrating all life’s accomplishments at Black Bird Farm.
Deb’s husband of 38 years, John, is the farm’s secret weapon. He’s the hands and brains behind our beautiful handmade tables and truly the man that makes our dreams a reality. John is not only our handyman, but the love of Deb’s life and one of the many reasons the farm is what it is. John and Deb’s daughter, Nicki – who you’ll often see getting things done around the farm and keeping our events on track, is Deb’s right-hand woman and the Event Coordinator at Black Bird Farm.
As the face of the planning sessions and brains behind your perfect day – you better believe it when we say that Nicki is more than just our note-taker! As the Event Coordinator, Nicki doesn’t let a detail go unnoticed or a request unfulfilled. Her love for the wedding industry and attention to detail is greatly showcased throughout the entire Black Bird Farm venue.
Nicki married her amazing husband, Dylan, in 2015 and they are both lovers of all pets (but especially their precious doodle crew). You may see Ottis and Max, their goldendoodles, and Suzie and Saly, their identical cats strolling the farm. In her free time, Nicki enjoys working on their little fixer upper of a home and traveling the world.
The team at Black Bird Farm is hardworking, welcoming and passionate about ensuring each guest that walks through our barn doors has the most exquisite experience possible. From the moment you arrive until you drive down the lane at the end of your special event, our crew is here to ensure your day is truly unique, stress-free and filled with unforgettable memories.
Along with Deb and Nicki, the success of our many events would not be made possible without our 20+ crew members that join us each year and help make each event hosted at the farm run seamless.
