    Great staffing service!

    DNA Event is great! We used their staffing service and had Via 313 served at our wedding. Kathryn is great to work with and handled all the changes that came with 2020 with grace. Everyone was very professional and helped us have a wonderful wedding!

    Best All Around Service, Fantastic Value with Beautiful Supplies and Delicious Food Offerings!

    DNA Events MADE our wedding. We shopped around quite a bit for the right caterer for our wedding. Shopping around and comparing prices and offerings was by far the most stressful part of wedding planning.

    We spoke with Kathryn and loved learning about their long history in town as a family-run caterer and really appreciated their commitment to customizing the experience to each client. Beyond that, they are very experienced and knew our venue's specific needs inside and out. Kathryn was very accessible and super responsive throughout the entire process. I don't know how she does it!

    DNA offers various packages that make customization quite flexible. We were able to customize the event to include catering services, bar staff and to have the catering arm of their company, Dagar's, to provide passed apps and sides. We then worked with Terry Black's BBQ to provide our favorite brisket, and Torchy's Tacos to provide some queso and tacos. Dagar's would have gladly provided this as well with their delicious menu options, but we really wanted to feature a couple of our favorite restaurants for our out-of-town guests. Kathryn arranged for a runner to pick up the food from both restaurants on the day of, so we didn't have to worry about that.

    Kathryn went above and beyond and had her master carver meet with Terry Black's to ensure the brisket caring technique was true to the Terry Black's brand. This kind of do-what-it-takes attitude is another example of how DNA Events really stands out! They build fantastic relationships with vendors, which really elevates the whole experience.

    We were also able to rent the place settings and silverware as part of our catering package with DNA Events. They have quite a few options and offered a design consultation to come in and look at the various colors and types of: chargers, napkins, plates, flatware, etc. We are so happy with how the place settings came out! We received many compliments on how pretty the tables were!

    On the day of the wedding, the staff were all on time and the setup was all done within the venue's short timeframe allotted! DNA served us a private dinner during cocktail at our request, so that we could spend a private moment together and be sure to eat (which we've heard so many brides & grooms forget to do). The staff made sure we had plenty of food so that we could taste everything! We felt very well taken care of.

    We got SO MUCH value for the affordable options that DNA Events provides. We thank them whole heartedly for their flexibility and earnestness to make the experience great.

    dna events's reply:

    WOW! Danielle, we cannot thank you enough for providing such a genuine, detailed account of your experience with us. We pride ourselves on working hard to see our clients' dream menus come to life and we are just so thrilled to hear that you felt that we did just this for you. We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!
