What an amazing wedding day!

Camille and her staff made our wedding everything that we could’ve dreamed! We used her services for Day-Of Coordinating and staffing.
We had been feeling extremely out of our depth with wedding planning. We had a ton of family coming in from out of town and we were concerned about getting everyone there, getting all the materials there, and we felt like we were losing sight of the actual goal: to get married.
Camille made the day so easy for us. All the worries and concerns that had been building up in the months leading up to the wedding felt heard and understood from our very first meeting. She asked us all the right questions, and made the whole thing seem doable, and more than that actually made the whole wedding doable.
My wife and I tend to be planners so everyone was very concerned about us actually kicking back and enjoying our wedding instead of micromanaging everything from the sidelines. From the moment we arrived at the venue on the big day, it was clear that everything was taken care of! My mom rolled up with a trailer filled to the brim with all our wedding things, and Camille and her staff took over arranging everything including our archway exactly as we had pictured it! She followed all of our requests and anything that we didn’t explicitly discuss was arranged beautifully without adding any additional stress to our plates.
Throughout the night her staff was professional and accommodating. They handled set up of everything for the wedding including the archway, decorations for the ceremony, table settings, the welcome table, as well as serving the food, providing bartenders, and putting everything away at the end of the night. We got endless compliments from our friends and family over how beautifully everything was done and we were blown away ourselves!
Camille made sure we were taken care of with everything for the night. She made sure we had plates of food once dinner was started, she kept us hydrated, and kept us on our timeline so we didn’t miss out on photography, cake cutting, and every other event we had outlined.
Overall, I would absolutely recommend Austin Occasions to anyone getting married. It was so worth it!

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!
