Super attentive event staff!

DNA Events was an outstanding catering company for our wedding. Our wedding planner (Rosa, Austin Wedding Planners) highly recommended them, and we were so much more than satisfied! Alanna was very responsive over email and worked well ironing out details with our planner. On our wedding day, the staff were on their A-game and were incredibly attentive to us as a couple and to all our guests. They were quick to clear cups and plates, and the bartending staff were excellent! Highly recommend DNA events if you have your heart set on a restaurant and need event staff to round the team out!

Great Experience!

DNA Events (and Kathryn and Alanna) were fantastic to work with - especially across two years of delays. We loved the idea of getting to share some of our favorite local food (Terry Black's BBQ) with our guests, which made DNA a great choice for us. They handled all the coordination with Terry Black's, and then we also used the sister company Dagar's to cater the non-BBQ portions of the meal (salads, breads, non-alcoholic drinks, etc.) DNA also picked up and carved the brisket on the day-of. The service was excellent - Alanna took such great care of my husband and I, and we heard nothing but compliments from our guests on the food (both the brisket and the excellent salads from Dagar's) and the professionalism of the servers.

On the logistics side, Terry Black's did end up being harder to work with than expected, so I also want to give credit to DNA for sticking with it. While the BBQ was excellent and we had personal reasons for using them, they changed their prices multiple times, had requirements that added complexity, and internal turnover almost derailed an agreement DNA had already negotiated. Thanks to the DNA team for their perseverance there!

DNA Events is a fabulous option for events for many reasons. They have staff that is professional and knowledgable, offer rental options and make the event a snap to coordinate. They offer services from a variety of vendors and can pick up and serve food from multiple catering companies. DNA Events creates versatility for couples wanting something out of the box. I recommend DNA Events for an amazing event.
