    Wow - amazing team and service!

    Melissa and her team were amazing. From the moment I sent an inquiry to the farewell at the end of our evening, we were so glad that we found Austin Occasions. We found their packages easy to select from and Melissa also provided a number of recommendations (what we might need, what we didn’t need) that were greatly appreciated. Even when we had a last minute change in venue (as in, the day before), Austin Occasions didn’t skip a beat. Every single team member at our event was pleasant, professional, attentive, and made things so easy. B was a wonderful crew leader and very helpful with facilitating decisions about where to set up, our place settings, and keeping things on track. So glad we worked with Austin Occasions and will definitely be using them in the future when the need arises. We hope the crew had fun at our wedding - thanks to AO, we sure did!

    Wonderful Experience

    Our experience with Melissa Benavides at Austin Occasions could not have been better. She and her entire team are thoughtful, hard working and fun! They went above and beyond to help us pull off a wonderful event for our daughter and her new husband. Melissa makes herself available during the entire planning process and offers great suggestions while also keeping in mind what each couple would like.

    Austin Occasions's reply:

    Thank you so much, we had a blast. I feel lucky to be part of people's big days! The love you see and feel is really beautiful.
