    High End Quality Catering Service

    I used to work at Occasions as a waiter back in college. Each time they had a wedding and I was scheduled to work, I always told myself that one day, Occasions will cater at my wedding. If you're looking for the best catering service hands down in the DMV, willing to splurge and spend half of your wedding budget on catering (won't recommend to couples on a very strict low wedding budget) then contact Occasions. The food quality is out of this world. When we did our food tasting, we felt like royalty. They give you a glance of the quality of service you will be getting on your big day. Best vendor choice by far.

    Occasions Caterers's reply:

    Angela - this is such a kind and thoughtful review! We are so glad you felt appreciated and taken care of. That's our goal! And, that's high praise from someone who knows the background of what happens at an event. Thank you so much for being a former employee - and now, a client. We wish you and your husband all the best in the world! - Team Occasions

    The best wedding food we've ever had

    This was the best wedding food I have ever had, and its something guests are still echoing a few months later. The customer service was fantastic- from our tasting to the event. I was so impressed with Kate, our account manager. She was on the ball and a pleasure to work with. The steak was fantastic (and is grass fed) and the surprise hit of the night was a global icecream bar with really interesting flavors.
