    The perfect caterer for our DIY wedding

    DNA and Kathryn, the owner, were just so wonderful to work with. We were planning our wedding from abroad so had to book a caterer without doing tastings, etc. and Kathryn really put me at ease. She talked out plans for the wedding over the phone, communicated really wonderfully be email, and ran things SO smoothly on the day. We booked food from Chi'lantro in Austin, and DNA handled everything, down to matching camp plates to go with our casual camp-themed decor. Because they work with a wide range of restaurants, I really recommend them to anyone with a venue that doesn't have a kitchen or doesn't do catering service - the cost is reasonable and they handle the stressful bits for you. They even let me mix and match some homemade hors d'oeuvres and drinks into the serving plan! HIGHLY recommend.

    I got an estimate back from the catering company we desperately wanted to cater our wedding and it was quite a bit higher than our budget, so we decided to look at staffing companies to possibly save costs but still have the food we wanted. I reached out to DNA events and got ahold of Kathryn. We corresponded via e-mail and phone to get estimates about staffing costs which were very reasonable and would take us significantly closer to our budget. I circled back with the catering company to let them know we would need drop off only and they replied they would not allow for an outside staffing company for weddings. I let Kathryn know what they said and she actually reached out to the company via e-mail since she had connections with there to try to allow DNA to serve their food.

    The company still wouldn't allow an outside company to serve but they worked with us on pricing and we got everything we wanted within our budget. She made us super happy with just putting in that extra effort to get the ball rolling on a solution for trimming costs and I will definitely be recommending everyone to use DNA events for staffing needs in the future.

    By the way, this all happened in a day. She is great with corresponding and keeping me in the know with the next possible step. Thanks for you time and advice! :)
