We had such an incredible experience with Dannella at our wedding. She was amazingly helpful during the wedding and (along with our other bartender through Bailey's Bartending) ran two bars seamlessly! Would highly recommend working with Dannella!Sent on 04/08/2018

I cannot give enough praises to Dannella Burnett and her company, Oakwood Occasions. They catered my daughters wedding (170 people) last Friday night. Absolutely every thing was fabulous!! The food was amazing as was the professionalism! Dannella covered all the bases in our initial meetings. I didn't have to worry about a thing on the night of our wedding. They provided excellent appetizers, full course dinner, chocolate fountain, manned the bar and to top it off they made the most incredible variety of cheese cakes (even one to look like a regular cake for my daughter to cut :)!! Every detail was attended to!! They were very affordable. We were just so over the top pleased with everything Oakwood Occasions did!! We are so grateful!Sent on 04/09/2014

Dannella and her staff were simply amazing. We had nothing less than a perfect wedding day. You would have thought she provided the weather for our outdoor wedding as well. The food was amazing and the presentation was equally as great. I'm not sure you could pay inflated prices for a caterer and get nearly as good of quality, presentation or service. Dannella was also our coordinator for the day, dealing with a rental home as a venue, we hadn't a clue how things were going to play out. We didn't know what our decor would end up looking like or know how things were going to get done with such little time. Dannella made it happen.Sent on 09/07/2012
Amazing planning! Oakwood is always on point and is never a disappointment.
